@brittany_dawn_fitness: “People will rate you, hate you, shake you, and break you. How strong you stand.. that’s what makes you.” When people see you start becoming successful in whatever it is you’re doing, they will do everything to tear you down.. and when I say everything, I mean everything. I know a lot of my clients are facing this as they are embarking on their health journey, and it’s something I deal with more than I’d like. DO NOT let their cold, insecure, hateful words get to you. This is the part where you guard you heart. You keep focus of who YOU are and what YOU want in your life, and you let the people who are trying to bring you down fall behind.. as they will. To every girl who is dealing with negativity from others for being on this journey: stand your ground. When someone has something rude to say, it’s only coming from their own insecurities, and most can see right through that. Brush your shoulders off, let their words bounce right off of you. Their opinion does not make you who you are. Yours does. Wake up every morning and point out 5 things you’re thankful for. I guarantee it’ll jump start your whole mood for the day, letting any negative comments towards you crumble before you. You choose who you let affect your life. It’s your journey, make it the best. As for me: today, I’m as happy as a bird with a worm🙆 “They always want to see you do good.. but never better than them.” ❤️💪👣 #nodaysoff #mondaymotivation #bikinipro #transformation #weightloss #bodesquad #bodybuilding #bodybuildingmotivation #instagramfitness #instafemmefitness #flexibledieting #iifymgirls #fitspo #fitspiration #fitchicks #fitnessaddict #fitnessjourney #fitfluential
"KitRex began as a homework assignment where I was asked to research a manufacturing process and demonstrate it in a unique way. I decided to research Industrial Origami, and over the course of 50 hours I designed, cut, and built a wearable 15-ft long velociraptor out of cardboard. I took him to a costume ball, and when I tromped into the room, literally everyone stopped to stare. He was the star of the evening, and everyone wanted one. I knew I had to do something."
Lisa then started (and successfully funded) a KitRex Kickstarter project to help her mass-produce an adorable 3-foot-long KitRex (since most people don’t have the space for a 15-ft paper dino). After months of prototyping and testing with kids between 8 - 12 years old, the final KitRex was born as a bristol board model that’s easily flat-packed and shipped anywhere (But you have to add your own googly eyes). A few lucky Kickstarter contributors were rewarded with giant 15-foot KitRexes of their very own.
Lisa isn’t quite ready to ship the KitRex, but for the time being you can click here to download a free pattern that fits on a standard 8x10 sheet of paper. It’ll be like playing with a dino hatchling.
