Courtney træner hver dag: Er det for meget eller helt okay?

***PRIORITIES*** It’s funny how priorities change over time. I had a long ride home in traffic today (shocker for LA I know) and was reflecting on how my priorities have changed in the last 6 months, the last year, the last 6 years. Today marks my 6th anniversary with my company. Holy crap! That’s a pretty long time (approximately about 6x longer than any relationship I’ve ever been in 😂🤷🏼‍♀️). It’s crazy to think about the journey of my career and how much I’ve experienced and grown as a person and a professional. Now in parallel to that life is the fitness life and “brand” I’ve built. This is something I’ve been struggling with lately…. I’ve been trying to figure out my “priorities” with this world and what that may look like moving forward. The last 6-8 months I have been manically focused on my career and have been intentional about living a more balanced life. That means I’ve put on a few pounds, counted less macros, haven’t scheduled a single photoshoot and have even taken significant time off at the gym. I know that I want to inspire more women to be boss badasses in every aspect of life, which probably means fewer pictures like this (sorry but not sorry) and I know that I want to continue to build my body and my career. I hope you take time to evaluate your priories and the WHY behind them. That’s what I’m doing right now and I hope you can be patient while I figure it out for myself 😬🤗 Photo by @lee_lhgfx Glam @karenpangmua . . . . . #teambbcom #Teambodybuildingcom #fitspo #fitgirls #fitglam #earnednotgiven #noexcuses #Ifbb #npc #npcbikini #musclecontest #fitnessmodel #aesthetics #fitnessgurls #booty #strongissexy #sexy #girlswholift #bootygains #squats #growbootygrow #progressnotperfection

Hun er med i Team, og hun lever af træning, fitness og bodybuilding. Men den slags deler altid vandene.

Hvad mener du om den blonde kvindes træning, som foregår hver dag? Er det okay eller for meget?


Hun deler en masse billeder på Instagram, og her har vi samlet de bedste.

Nyd dem her:

**LIFE UPDATE** 1. Still pinching myself over the release of my cover of @fitnessmagsa. I’m still getting to all the comments and texts! Thank you all for the support- some of you for my entire life (heyyy Seis), some for the last several years, and some for a few weeks! No matter how long or how I know you – I APPRECIATE YOU. 2. I’m currently dying on the stair master 😅 3. I’m officially a resident of the South Bay!!! The last few weeks have been a little stressful with packing, moving, and unpacking, but I already feel at home and love my roomieee 🙃. 4. The Tiffany’s box from my story a few weeks ago was not from a man 😂 I don’t know if I’ve ever got so many DM inquires 😂😂 your girl is still single 💁🏼‍♀️ 5. I had two H2H conversations yesterday and was reminded how important it is to PAUSE and smell the freaking roses. (Anyone else not good at this?! 🙄🙋🏼‍♀️) 6. It’s #Humpday so here’s a “Humpday-esque” photo. Oldie but a goodie by @lee_lhgfx Cardio is over so now my caption is too 😆. Crush the rest of your week! . . . . . #teambbcom #Teambodybuildingcom #fitspo #fitgirls #fitglam #earnednotgiven #noexcuses #Ifbb #npc #npcbikini #musclecontest #fitnessmodel #aesthetics #fitnessgurls #booty #strongissexy #sexy #girlswholift #bootygains #squats #growbootygrow #progressnotperfection

We’re nearing the last few days of 2017! Have you taken time to reflect on your accomplishments? Have you thought about what your goals for 2018 are going to be? At one point in my life my mantra was “Just say yes!” Say yes to new people and new adventures and new opportunities. However, I’ve decided that 2018 is the year of “No.” I know that sounds a little strange, but I’ve decided it’s what I need to work on most. I’m a people pleaser; my knee jerk reaction is to say “yes!” or be as accommodating as possible. I am going to work on saying no to things that I don’t want to do and pushing back when I don’t agree or most importantly, saying “no” to people who don’t deserve my time and energy. It’ll be easier said than done, BUT I know it’ll be worth it!! Getting in a gym routine is always a great resolution, but make sure you pick a few goals that address your physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional self as well. I’m super pumped that I’ll be at the @bodybuildingcom booth for the LA FitExpo!! Make sure you come by on January 6th or 7th! We have a bunch of sick things to give away! #BestSelf #BuildYourBody #NewYearNewGoals #2018 #Bodybuildingcom . . . . . #teambbcom #Teambodybuildingcom #fitspo #fitgirls #fitglam #earnednotgiven #noexcuses #Ifbb #npc #npcbikini #musclecontest #fitnessmodel #aesthetics #fitnessgurls #booty #strongissexy #sexy #girlswholift #bootygains #squats #growbootygrow #progressnotperfection

Why do you compete? That’s a question I get all the time, especially since I have a full time corporate career. Often that question is followed by “You’re crazy!” or “I could never do that!” I compete for me and me alone. I compete to give my workouts a purpose. I compete to feel strong. I compete to look good naked. I compete to feel confident in a power dress. I compete to give my life routine and structure because I am more successful in all aspects of my life when I am “in season”. I compete because when I’m prepping I eat clean and when I eat clean my skin looks better, my brain works better, and my body feels better. I compete because I love getting glammed up and showing off all my hard work. I love competing because I love meeting other people with the same passion as mine. I compete because it could potentially inspire others to think about their health and body. I compete for me. So why do you compete? You should be able to answer with a laundry list of things! Because at the end of the day, this should be FUN. That’s what life is all about 😉 I am proud of my hard work and the physique I brought to the @musclecontest Los Angeles Championships!
