Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I was telling some of my students last night (especially the ones somehow even smaller than I am, including two very badass ladies) to look this performance up cuz it is legit inspiring.

There were like FOUR places where her height required her to JUMP when taller competitors could REACH. So cool.

I just watched this last night, and she is incredible. 5’ tall, 100# flat and she beasts through the course even making it up the ramp in one run. She’s positively epic. Makes me want to look into freerunning clubs around here.

She is literally one of my favorite people and a huge inspiration to me. She might be a heck of a lot shorter than me (literally 10 inches shorter), but to do what she can takes some serious strength and endurance. I can’t do half of what she does today, but one day I will.

This is badass!!!!

Someone finally made it!

I watched her, and the other woman who made it, and I was sooooo happy!

The full video is awe-inspiring

Anonymous asked: So I'm trying to get over my mental problems with eating(I feel guilty after eating over 1000 calories a day or eating something unhealthy) so everyday I'm letting myself have some sort of dessert or treat like today I had ice cream. Is one treat like that a day going to ruin my progress with working out?

Ahhhh you need to eat over 1000 calories a day! It’s hard for me to say though.. probably not? 

Anonymous asked: I've happened to come across your tumblr often really inspirational and good advice. Question, do you practice what you preach? About positive vibes, doing good and so forth. It's hard to believe that we have good people that want to spread positive vibes around us. That being said, are you positive and genuine all the time? Ever negative towards people you dislike or don't get along with? Anyways keep up the good work and progress.

I find it kind of sad that you find it hard to believe that there are good people who want to spread the positivity!

There’s no way I could say I am positive and genuine ALL the time. I am human and I have negative thoughts constantly but what you you give the most focus or power to is what grows so I try my damn-est to focus on the positives in life. Reblogging the things I do are like self affirmations. I just feel like I have so much in life to be grateful for so I pledged to myself to always TRy to focus on the good things in life.

There’s a quote I found that sums up how I feel about this…

"The decision to be positive is not one that disregards or belittles the sadness that exists. It is rather a conscious choice to focus on the good and to cultivate happiness. Happiness is not a limited resource and when we devote our energy and time to trivial matters and choose to stress over things that ultimately are insignificant, we perpetuate our own sadness. And we lose sight of the things that make us happy and rationalize our way out of doing amazing things" (source: 

(sorry this was so long winded but hope you get what I’m trying to say :) )
