My adorable @airbnb hostess was blowing up my phone, while I was getting my last private lesson of the day. According to her, New Yorkers haven’t seen a thunder & lightning storm, to this extent, for a long time. It does seem like the Viking gods are about to fall out of the sky. The thunder is deafening, the brilliant purple lightning is horizontal, & the rain is impressive 💦 It’s quite the storm this evening. I love it & feel so happy in it ☺️ She texted, “Please come home! I don’t want you out there! It’s scaring me! You’ll get hurt!” I texted her “I’m from Oregon. I love this. It’s just a drizzle! It’s fun! Let’s go outside & dance in it. I have webbed feet.” Silence... “Almine, do you REALLY have webbed feet? Does that mean you need extra towels in your bathroom?” 🤣👍😂 A perfect storm, an adorable mother figure hostess, purple lightning, lunch with @elizabethannblake (the last time I saw her we were climbing in Moab, UT. together), & phenomenal instruction today from Professor @domdabomburmom A fantastic day ⛈ I ❤️ NY #lovenewyork #greatday #stormlover #grateful #ny #happiness #bjj #jiujitsu #nyc #gratitude #traincation #dominykaobelenyte #hindscombatsports

Just moving with some lighter percentage work! Met a few more people in the gym today and that was cool. Every person I met we somehow were connected in some way or another. This whole life thing is pretty cool. #weightlifting #olympicweightlifting #badassfemales #bakersfield #bearlake #traincation #soberaf #idaho #utah #Wyoming #powers #doughnutsanddeadlifts @bearlakeshed

Just thought I’d walk the streets of NY in my “battle jammies,” between private lessons 🤣 Forgot a change of clothes 🤦‍♀️ The “upside”? I’ve had 2 transvestites ask where they can acquire my outfit, & have been “cat called” 3x being asked “If I’m going to take on ‘The Empire’ all by myself?” “Of course I am!” I said. And when I told one of them he had a nice butt, it completely flipped the “cat call” script back on him, & he stammered...”Uhhh...I don’t know what to say.” I said, “You say “damn right, I do! I work hard for these buttered biscuits!” 🤣 I’m teaching New Yorkers how to play their own game. I love it here 😂😆🤣 #battlejammies #fashionroadkill #ny #loveit #butteredbiscuitsfordays #happiness #newyork #catwomanscatcallclinic #newyorkcity #catwomanchronicles #traincation #bjj #beastcoast #jiujitsu #bjjlifestlye #thealminosphere #fun #boomsauce

These pictures have layers of meaning for me. The day after I came out of the hospital from my surgery I was dazed & confused. I didn’t know what happened, at first. I didn’t know if I got injured in climbing or BJJ. I was disoriented. I then remembered that it was BJJ. I felt a strange panic. I kept asking why they cut my gi off, & saying I needed to go back to class. I kept saying “Take me back to class!” It was surreal & weird. I wasn’t myself. And, then, it sank in: I couldn’t climb. I couldn’t do Jiu-Jitsu, I couldn’t work. I woke up in a pool of vomit & blood. I felt a deep darkness inside that I hadn’t felt before. I crawled back to my bed & looked at my phone. I saw a number I didn’t recognize. I opened the text. It was a video sent to me from my BJJ “Shero,” @domdabomburmom “How did she know my number?” “How did she know I wasn’t doing well?” “How did she know I just had surgery?” She offered me words of encouragement, & said, “When you’re up & about again, you come work with me.” I couldn’t believe it. Come to find out my friend, Leeann Morris had orchestrated this & told Dominyka I was in awe of her talent. When I was rehabbing, I had 2 goals: to get back to climbing the same grade I was, before surgery, within a year. Done ✅ The second: to fly to NY to work with Dominyka. Today, is day #1 of 4 in fulfilling my second goal. I know I’m back now. Something inside me feels resolved, working with her. Today, I met a woman I’ve looked up to for years, & never met. I’m humbled she agreed to work with me 1-on-1 for the next 4 days, & contacted me after my surgery. The comraderie & laughter that was already shared with our first lesson today was priceless 🥰🙏😘 #thejourney #bjj #recovery #grateful #newyork #jiujitsu #bjjwomen #fullcircle #traincation #bjjlifestlye #jiujitsujourney #heart #gratitude #climbing #climber #loseyourselffindyourself #postop #surgery #ny #happiness #queensny #bjjlifestyle #life #realtalk

Hotel training for the week...DBs up to 50s and decent stack on the cable machine... I’ll make it work! No big lift the thrills, just a full body 45 minute going hard and then playtime in the water! #traincation #strongwoman #powerlifting #strengthtraining #ascendsf #hughesperformancenutrition #stayaccountable #girlswholift

You know you love your mat tribe, when you will miss your team on vacation. These men always have my back: literally & figuratively 😂 I always feel supported in my training by Professor @paulmoresibjj & my mat brothers. As I left the gym today one of them said to me, “You get to go train with a group of awesome ladies finally! We’re so happy for you! You lucky lady!” Thank you, gentlemen, for being an example of class, support, dignity, savagery & humor. It’s only a week, but I’ll miss this “Band Of Merry Men” 🙏 #afewgoodmen #bjj #jiujitsu #beastcoastbound #traincation #grateful #lovethisteam #themanimals #sologirlarmy #gratitude #brothasfromanothamotha @personalevolutiondoc @juarez_matt @bjj.4.life @r4m1z09 @cory.james.hill @mica_bjj @ralphgraciebend

Gotta love “casual” climber conversations 🤣🧗🏻‍♀️ Dearric: “Hey, want to climb today?” Me: “Can’t, D. Sorry, friend. Packing for the (B)East Coast. I leave tomorrow.” Dearric: “Oh, climbing ‘The Empire State Building?’ Me: “Just Jiu-Jitsu this trip, pal.” D: “But you always combine climbing & BJJ on your trips. Let’s climb some buildings! You’re going to need a belayer.” Me: “Maybe next time, buddy. I need to hang out with some ladies. I need a ‘Team Estrogen Fix’.” D: “Fine. Climb Trump buildings, & pee on them yourself.” Me: “Hey! That’s sweet! I didn’t even think of that! Thanks for the suggestion!” 🤣🙋‍♀️😂🙋‍♀️ #hipsandgripstrips #thealmineosphere #climbing #climb #climber #bjj #beastcoast #traincation #happiness #jiujitsu #verticalbanter #grateful #mondaymotivation #peeonbuildings #wildchild #radgirlslife #badasswomen #wallscaler #boomsauce #coffeetalk

Sometimes you feel strong, and other times your strength comes from the people surrounding you. Lately my strength has been coming from the support of those around me. I couldn’t express my gratitude for those people here without writing a novel. To all of you out there who have been so uplifting, thank you. #gratefulforyouall Flyer: @theacroflyer Photo: @dchaws Shorts: NEW design from @designkontrol (10% off with code acrotrainer10)

It had been a while since I’ve lifted in a gym and around other people... I actually REALLY enjoyed it! I didn’t feel the typical pressure I put on myself. I need to do this more often. #traincation #pr #weightlifting #olympicweightlifting #soberaf #masters #crossfit #notCrossFit #strengthandconditioning #hermit #doughnutsanddeadlifts #momlife #lifeandweightlifting #badassfemales @themountaingym

Best thing is when our time here in Barcelona is up, our train-cation will take us to our next stop. The fun goes on and on and on. Beat that?! We’ll be heading to Switzerland again, going mountainways up into the sky. Do you know what clouds feel like? They are cold and slightly moist. That’s really all it’s about isn’t it, to experience things...To know what things feel like and understanding what that means to you...🌍👁 . #igdaily #photooftheday #switzerland #ecotravel #traincation #interrail #europe #stopclimatechange #travel #theglobewanderer
