It’s happening again. This was my first marathon. It’s personal. A group of “friends” were talking about running this half 3 years ago. I mentioned I would be interested and was told “it takes too much for you to train for a half marathon. It’s not possible for you (me).” Then later told I should not run because “I didn’t look like a runner and I didn’t take it serious enough to succeed.” I don’t know what a runner “looks” like and I sure don’t know what “not possible” means. I just know if you want it bad enough you will succeed. Sometimes you even get put in the highlight videos. This will be Marathon #4 in just under a years time. Go ahead... challenge me. Better yet, challenge yourself. #determined#disciplined#justrun#excited.

Let's give a giant congratulations to Mohammad Jafarnejad for being CFB's December Athlete Of The Month!! This guy came on the scene and hit the ground running. The progress that he has made in the last 3 months has been incredible! This is a true testament to his consistency and work ethic. Never an excuse, never a complaint, never an explanation "why not"... If he struggles with something or misses a lift, there is usually a moment of reflection and then a renewed vigor just to have the opportunity to come back better and stronger with a well devised plan to try again. To him it's not a failure it's an opportunity to get better! It is this confident humility that we love most about Mohammad. He leaves his ego at the door, comes in and tackles whatever challenge is in front of him, and does it with a smile on his face!! It's because of this, that he is our December Athlete Of The Month. Read about him here:

To succeed, your desire for success must outweigh your fear of failure. You have to fail in order to succeed, the same way you must experience pain to grow stronger. 💪

As someone who has always enjoyed running, it felt so amazing to hit the pavement hard again this last summer. I did something I have never done before though too, and I included strength training with my miles. I had so much success doing this that I cut over 30 sec off my mile time within 3 weeks.
The success I had makes me extra excited for a new fitness program (80 Day Obsession) that will be launching in January. This program excites me because it will offer:
💪🏼 Strength training geared towards my weak areas - glutes, arms, and abdomen. 🥗 A food program that will help me burn fat and lean out- didn’t even know that was possible at 34!
🏃🏼♀️ A WIDE variety of workouts because they’re posted LIVE and available for 48 hours afterwards.
If you want more info comment below with an emoji, and I will get you into our information group. 🙂
Do you have those one pot/casserole dishes that make some meals easy for the whole family? We definitely have our favorites. This is one of them and it has simple ingredients...peppers (veggie 💚), ground turkey (protein ❤️), brown rice (carb 💛), and shredded mozzarella (healthy fat 💙). Oh and mushrooms (💚) for me only! The rest of my family doesn't like mushrooms! 😜
The origin of this quote is from St. Augustine. His Letter 211 (c. 424) contains the phrase Cum dilectione hominum et odio vitiorum, which translates roughly to With love for mankind and hatred of sins. The phrase has become more famous as love the sinner but hate the sin or hate the sin and not the sinner (the latter form appearing in Mohandas Gandhi's 1929 autobiography).Don't hate the player, hate the game!

Tiara X Sash 👑⏳ #IssaLifestyle .
Extremely honoured to receive the Lifestyle Award from @LyzabethLopez and the @hourglassworkout family. .
This past weekend we celebrated 10 years of growth for Lyza and the HGW family. I’ve been fortunate to be a part of this empowering movement for over 6 years.
I’ve seen you rent out studio spaces in gyms, conduct workouts at the Skydome and Trinity Bellwood’s Park, to owning your own gym and growing HGW into a franchise with over 14 locations across Canada/US and soon Internationally. You have been recognized by @khloekardashian@cosmopolitan and @forbes just to name a few and you most recently launched your own @trainwithlyzabeth Workout App. You're constantly crushing personal and business goals and surprising the team along with yourself.
I can say 10 years later and the amount of success you’ve received you are still the same humble sweet soul I met 6 years ago. You have changed my life for the best. I am forever grateful to share this milestone and award with you Lyza 👑 .
Shout out to my love @hippy.sol
for allowing me to be picky with eating at times, be in a crappy mood when I miss a workout and just constantly supporting and pushing me to reach my goals. I would have not been recognized this past weekend without you by my side ❤
