Life is short. Remember to focus on what matters and let go of what doesn't. You don't need a reason for doing everything in your life. Do it because you want to, because its fun, and because it makes you happy!
Think about all the things you have to do in the day. Where does working out fit into that? When I first started my fitness journey, I would let every excuse get in my way. Too tired, not enough time, not sure what to do…didn’t feel like it… every excuse in the book to not follow through with a workout. When I started making my workouts a priority, rather than an obligation, is when I started to see my excuses melt away. I always remember how good I feel after a nice sweat. When you make fitness a priority, watch how quickly those excuses disappear. If you’re doing my Bikini Body Challenge on @Fitplan_app, how do you make your workouts your priority!?
Summer, slow down please
Lately I’ve been reading before bed, last night I felt inspired by the words “Eventually everything will fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and remember that everything happens for a reason “ Comment below your favorite quote.. always looking for new mottos to interpret :)
Tag me in your best #Seltering pictures and I will pick 3 winners next Saturday to win some goodies 🎁
Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes. You truly know how to put a big smile on my face!! Feeling so blessed, I hope everyone has an amazing weekend!
LAST DAY OF BEING 25 😱 WOW WHERE DOES TIME GO?! This past year has been a transformative year filled with so much growth, which I am both proud of, and beyond grateful for. Special shout out to all of you for being there for me throughout my journey and keeping me strong. When I first started posting my fitness journey on Instagram back in 2011, I was using this platform to self-motivate and keep track of my progress. Never in my dreams did I ever think I’d one day have such an amazing social media fam to make me work twice as hard! Always remember, keep up the hard work and never give up on your dreams.

Wow Maldives 😍
Life is like the ocean. It can be calm or still, rough or rigid, but in the end, it is always beautiful…. 🌊
Morning Maldives workout ✔️ BCAAs vs EAAs… luckily with @TheSpartaNutrition BCAAs I get BOTH 🙌🏽 As the building blocks of protein, amino acids have helped me maintain muscle growth 🍑 The Gum Drop flavor is so yummy and I can’t wait to get my hands on the Lemon Drop next 😍 Follow @thespartanutrition and click the link in their bio to shop #ad 💪

Throughout this trip, I haven’t had much time to workout... and THAT’S OKAY! I’ve been super present, living in the moment and enjoying all that Bali has to offer. 🌸 But, today I made a commitment to get my booty to the gym for an actual workout and it felt good!!!!! Oh and that awkward moment when I realized I was wearing my @aloyoga leggings backwards 😹 #Jetlag #seltering
Do more of what makes you happy 😃
Bali sunsets 😍 Hair up or down?! ⬅️➡️
How do you like your coffee?! ☕️
Happy Fourth of July loves!! Make sure to blast some Bruce Springsteen today, get grilling, and enjoy the beautiful weather! Where’s everyone watching the fireworks tonight?! 🎉
SO excited to be headed to a few places I’ve never been before this week! One of my favorite travel quotes is “once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before - Dalai Lama“ . Where is one place you’ve never been before, but want to check off your bucket list?
There are some nice people on this street.
Good morning my loves 💕 Just finished a great jog along the East river and now I can’t wait to enjoy my favorite @thespartanutrition shake! One scoop of this protein powder has 25g of PROTEIN, and ONLY 1g of sugar! What do you put in your smoothies?? I’d love to try new recipes with my @TheSpartaNutrition protein powder😊 #Ad #SpartaSponsored @GNCLiveWell 🏃🏻♀️
Papa appreciation post. This guy @halfadams always leaps at the chance to carry, bathe, snuggle and love on our little one. He has carried me on his back emotionally and physically when things were beyond difficult and ten years in i still feel lucky in love. Artwork by @guadypleskacz
Come get lost with me 🚣🏼♂️
Summer feels 😍
Love it when I get film back. #film #nyc #fbf
NEW YOUTUBE - NEW YOUTUBE - NEW YOUTUBE!!!!! Just posted my first travel vlog. I take you with me to Mexico City, where I taught a bootcamp to over 3,000 incredible fans, to Prague for some family time, and Nashville for a GNC expo. Follow along for an inside look at what a #dayinmylife looks like!
Pool side 😍 My go-to virgin drink this summer is this Exotic Lemonade 🍋 I combined @TheSpartaNutrition Peach Mango BCAA, with fresh squeezed lemon juice, fresh squeezed lime juice, fresh raspberries, sparkling water, and ice. AMAZING! - One of my favorite #SpartaNutrition products is the Spartan BCAA. It is 100% free of artificial colors, packed Amino9™ and WITH 3 GRAMS OF EAAS dramatically improves my performance in the gym and helps reduce soreness post workout. - Each scoop contains 👇 💜 2500MG of Leucine 💜1250MG of Isoleucine 💜1250MG of Valine - Spartan BCAA’s come in four different flavors: Peach Mango, Watermelon, Gum Drop, & Lemon Drop. I can’t decide which one is my favorite 🤔 - You can find @TheSpartaNutrition in your local @GNCLivewell. - #Ad #SpartaSponsored
I get a lot of messages asking me “how did you achieve all that you have…how do you have your life figured out already?” … The truth is, I don’t have my life figured out…and THAT’S OKAY! And I don’t think I will ever have a moment or thought where I feel fully satisfied because I’ll always want to achieve more. Don’t seek the time where “everything is perfect” or “better.” Instead, be present, look within and give yourself the love that you deserve. That’s how you will really get to where you want to be.
Happy #firstdayofsummer AND happy #internationalyogaday! Yoga has brought so much happiness and growth into my life, and has made me a #zenjen - kidding about the last part - but in all seriousness, yoga has challenged me in so many ways and has made me both physically and mentally stronger. HUGE shoutout to my @aloyoga fam - you guys are such incredible, smart, kind, and giving people that I am so lucky to know and practice with. 🧘🏻♀️Comment below what you love about yoga for a chance to win a FREE workout set (extra points if you are following @aloyoga!)❤️ ❤️❤️ #seltering
This is only the beginning for you…
Where would I even want to go?
@halfadams I have never seen you step into a role with more ease or grace. Your love for our daughter is exponential and watching you become a father is one of the greatest joys of my life. Our little girl is so lucky to call you “papa” #happy1stfathersday
You get what you focus on, so focus on what you want 🌹
Summer’s in the air baby!! What is everyone up to this weekend?☀️

Consistent self work is key to being the best version of yourself. It takes a lot of focus, time, and energy. A lot of my time is dedicated to my work, so whenever I do have free time, I make sure I am spending it bettering myself or surrounding myself with people who want to help me move towards being my best self!
On my mind 🤔
Happy Sunday fam :) I wanted to remind everyone today that you never really know what someone is going through. Although some might say my life looks “perfect,” that is just a social media facade. I love the phrase “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. I decided to post about my panic attack the other day to bring attention to the severity of mental health and the stigma that surrounds it. I am going to share all the things that I find helpful with you guys on my stories and my blog in the upcoming weeks. I want to use my platform to help others going through what I am going through. Always remember you are not alone and to ask for help, this is only a small bump in the road that you will overcome and learn from!
How are my loves doing today?!
Some thoughts I wrote down while I couldn’t sleep on the plane : •Stop thinking about what your life should be like and accept what it is •Decide to let every obstacle be a learning experience instead of a negative experience. •Be kind and brave •Be present •Don’t talk down to yourself •Release the negative people and energy from your life and accept the fresh, new and unknown. •Choose to be persistent instead of jealous and envious •Don’t be someone you are not, in an attempt to fit in And always…BE TRUE TO YOURSELF!
Thank you to the sons and daughters of this country who have fought and sacrificed in the name of Freedom and Democracy. You are remembered. You are always with us.
Mexico City!!!! It was such a blast training and meeting you guys @poweradereach. I am so blown away by the love and support you all showed me. It means more to me than you will ever know. Fun fact: my biggest following is from Mexico City! Comenta abajo si te encontré ayer ❤️ Now back to NYC for a quick 24 hours and then off to Prague! ✈️
Good morning loves! Training my #MexicoCity babes this morning and I could not be more excited. Let’s crush this workout and have a great day!
Hey world. Some tough but important news. This is Drago Sumonja. He is a kick ass actor, producer, creator and above all he is an incredible human being and a good friend of mine. At the beginning of this year he was diagnosed with Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer and he has been fighting the good fight ever since. It’s not cheap and it’s definitely not easy. If you want to help please consider donating to his #gofundme (LINK IN BIO) and spread the word. Every little bit helps. And every day matters. We love you Drago. ♥️ Stay strong. 📷 by @peterprato

Everybody wants to be a rockstar and yesterday @stephanmoccio allowed me into his beautiful studio and made me feel like one. I am beyond grateful that you would share your time and talent with me. 🤘🏽♥️
Thank you to everyone who listened to be blather on today on the @imdb show about #clarathefilm and if you want the full quote I referenced. Here she is (along with a dope video of a huge ass hawk) enjoy: “There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is on a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.” — Martha Graham

So back on the first season of @prettylittleliars I brought my aunt’s nikon camera from the 70s to set and I photographed some of the cast and crew. I ended up photographing @shaymitchell a lot because... she’s gorgeous (duh) but as you can see from some of the photos I took she’s not only beautiful on the outside but she is magnetic. Whether lost in thought or radiating some magical ethereal joy she is just someone you want to be around. Because when you do get to be around her she makes your life a whole lot better. So I’m thrilled to say, Happy birthday to my friend, Shay. I’m so grateful that somehow after PLL ended we managed to grow even closer and I know this year is gonna be the best one yet. Don’t ask me how. I’ve just got a knack for telling these things. ❤️
It’s not a perfect heart, but it’s mine. Thank you @ggetla for the lessons in milk and the art of the pour.
I have a lot of incredible men in my life, but you are one of the best brothers a girl could hope to have. Happy birthday @michaelbellisario I’m so proud to be your little sis.
Florida be trippin’
Felt like I found a photo of me in a past life. Had to steal from @instituteofweather too beautiful not to. #felixthiollier

Our loquat tree runneth over. So we made jam.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY GURL @kaitjoseph I am so lucky to have someone so beautiful, intelligent, stylish, curious, free spirited and fun in my life. You’re a tiny package but you pack a major punch. Xx
This is a special lady. She is ma friend. I’m lucky to have her in my life. Each year I have her in my life, my life gets better. I hope I can do the same for her. Here’s to another beautiful year @cherylpickles I’ll do my best to make it the best one yet. I love you.

When you and @amyrosoffdavis show up in the same outfit you gotta pull off some weird choreography during your workout.
