“Success consists of going from failure to failure without a loss of enthusiasm”
Success isn’t a straight line. It’s a long and winding road of bumps, pit holes, changes of direction and flat tires.
The secret is to keep on keeping on enthusiastically no matter what. #freiheit#entscheidung#erfolg
Happy Saturday! I wanted to do a little comparison between these two pictures.. and why it’s so important. .
I had a picture pop up reminding me how lean I was after the American Open 1 year ago. Immediately I thought, “Woah! I wish I looked like that right now!” 😒 but I had cut weight, followed a strict diet, was training hard, and I was in peak shape. This is NOT sustainable for me- it was in preparation for competition. .
It was so fun to be this lean! Don’t get me wrong. It took a long time to get to this- and a lot of hard work. But.. I’m now in a state of repair and recovery, and my body can use the extra body fat to do just that. It’s also good to note that it’s HARD for me to get this lean. I have to work at it- not everyone is like that. Some people change a couple things in their diet and drop body fat and keep it off. That’s OK! Body fat looks different on each individual. .
Everyone has those thoughts. It doesn’t matter how ‘in shape’ you look- negative self talk happens to everyone. BUT, I wanted to give some insight into the nutrition/health side of this issue. .
We (females especially) tend to live in this constant state of ‘dieting’ or trying to lose weight. It’s extremely tough on our body/hormones. Your body needs a break from this craziness! There’s nothing wrong with dieting- it’s the constant mindset and under-eating that can really mess with our body’s everyday function. .
‘Diets’ have a place in your life- but they shouldn’t BE your life. Allow yourself to diet, maintain, and (dare I say it!) gain weight in order to live a healthy/balanced life. If your desire is to lose weight- great! Your trend should be downward.. over time.. but will not be a perfectly straight path to get there.

I’m not sure when it all finally clicked really.
I never had the OH SNAP MOMENT.
I kinda walked blindly until I got the hang of it. Or until I thought I did. I’d have weekends and events,where I fell off and sure I got back on the wagon.
But I think that’s what we all do...Fail that is.
What’s different from every other time is that I realized that mistakes where ok. That even while failing I had the mindset of getting back on the horse the next day.
If you take anything from this sassy target bra pic. Realize that it’s not going to be perfect.
That shit will hit the fan. People will judge your character.. WHO GIVES A 💩 STAY ALL IN. CHOOSE HAPPY! 🙌🏻🙋🏼♀️
At the very beginning I told myself THIS is what it’s going to be from here on out and that i choose ME over starting over. 💋

Join us on Sunday, November 24th at 6pm for a transformational evening of sound✨
The transformational power of sound and vibration!
We know sound is vibration that touches every part of our physical being, and is heard through every cell of our bodies. Sound heals on a physical level because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes.
Join us in this profound opportunity for transformation and healing, as we are immersed in a field of sound and high frequency vibration. Learn how all of reality is vibration, how sound can be used as a powerful healing modality, and how we can change and create our reality by shifting our own frequency through intention.
Patricia Everitt, sound healing ceremonialist, sound architect, and shamanic practitioner, will share how sound is intrinsic to our reality, and an essential part of our transformation and ascension.
Through these high vibrational energies invited in through a guided meditation, the Paiste Sun gong amplifies vibrational frequencies to help build a “quantum” field. Patricia will be playing an intuitively created soundscape during the sound experience.
The Sound Bath of musical surroundings includes a variety of instruments, including chimes, drums, rattles, rainstick, Peruvian whistling vessel, tuning forks and intuitive voice. Take this opportunity for yourself to learn, be nourished, restored, and to come together in community to bring about transformational shift.
I AM HERE, to release all of my fears, come to peace with all my tears, and remember what it is to be alive...
Something about the meaning of my name:
My given name of my parents is Luzia, which means „the light bringer“. Since I’m a child I have been a very brightful being. I have always been someone that is lightening where i see shadow and speak out the truth, radically. Not everyone was ready for my radical light, often I got pushed away or excluded.
Mara is my spiritual name according to my cosmic family. It means „transformer of earth energies“ and belongs to the line of the Priest‘s. Since I started to add Mara to my first name, there has been like a gate opening and so much of my true soul mission comes trough. It feels like it has fortified my the power of my origin. .
Today I say YES to all of that power that comes with my name. I am fully accepting the depth that has been transmitted with my name and I gratefully use my abilities of radical honesty , bringing light into the darkness and transforming tense earthly energies in my work with individuals and groups. .
I fully dedicate my life to shine as bright as i am, to ignite the fire of awakening and to bring healing and transformation where it’s needed. .
Aho. Ashé. Amen.
How is your relation with your name? .
Thanks for capturing me: @mysticalpics.ch .
It is crazyyyy how quickly time goes and how much the human body can change! I can’t believe this was me in 2017, so pleased on reflection at how far I’ve come with training 💪🏻 I have mentioned recently how it’s been a struggle to be motivated, this last week I’ve had one session! But that’s due to a busy schedule and prioritising important needs.
Sometimes you need to be unmotivated with what you’re doing to make a change so that you can get stuck back in again! 🏋🏼♀️
This is an example of an athletic moms😍
As she said :Monkey see monkey do
Monkey don’t monkey won’t “
Well said @realheidipowell -
Thanks for showing the great example of an athletic mama 💪
Repost from @realheidipowell post
Couple years ago was the first time I went to a bodybuilding show. It was also my first time to step on stage in front of strangers. I also am an introvert. Which was hard for me but at that moment I felt confident with my hard work, preparing for 6 long months of being strict. I felt prepared that gained me the confidence not to let my fears get the best of me. It’s been a couple of years but yesterday was the first time to actually see a bodybuilding show and not be the one on that stage. Saw it from a different point of view. Motivating me for what’s to come in the near future. As this chapter is about the finish in a few days. A new chapter is about to begin. Always wanting to improve as I progress In age. Not seeing it as being old but just a number.

Our desires jump off the scales. No more weighing them out. The negotiations are over. We've looked at each other and considered all of the options. We’ve found ways to harmonize the within and without.
But now we are able to look through to the other side. We are willing to be extreme, to turn it all inside out and upside down. Holding hands with our Monsters to walk them out of the shadows. This is a revolutionary act of Self Love. Passionately caressing our own bodies, right out in the open. Allowing blood to purify our fears of being seen. Inviting others to do the same.
It will feel like stepping on the gas to reach orgasm. The willingness to jump off the cliff so that we no longer have to question whether or not we will fall. But if we can stay here a little longer. On the edge. Living life fully in the moment. Between life and death - our passions will reach a level of intensity we have not yet known in this lifetime. Self preservation diffuses from gut to muscles. Giving us the strength to fully exist in a life that is far from ordinary.
These affirmations are meant to inspire our ability to Find our Way. Mars is in Scorpio 11.19.19 - 01.03.20

I use to think that being 165lbs was too big of a number I was partying hard and eating unhealthy as well as trying to stay fit.. ➡️move forward 5 years after having a kid.. I was determined to be "lean", thinking lean meant to be skinny and look unhealthy still.. I was doing body weight workouts, eating about 1300calories a day to keep my weight low.. realizing that I was getting to skinny and I needed to really train.. eat more, train in a gym.. the journey grew on me and made me want to be better.. I started to go to school for Personal training, sports nutritional coaching, and exercise therapy.. ➡️ fast forward 4.5 years more and I am back at the weight I thought made me look fat, uncomfortable, unhealthy is now the place I feel most confident than I have felt in years! It's all about perspective of self-image, when you are dedicated and consistent in what you really want the results will change your mindset, make you confident in yourself and life!
