Strength & Beauty 🌸❤️ – When it comes to talk about beauty you have to always be mindful that this is a topic completely subjective to personal tastes, what’s beautiful for me might not be for you. It’s really that simple for me, always trying to be mindful and respectful of the others. – And this is when strength comes to play! Strength has many forms, from the physical one you display with your capabilities and endurance, to your mental capacity, to stay strong and stoic in the face of challenges, to remain peaceful in the face of disagreements. One of the main goals I’m pursuing in my life is to keep building the inner strength, more than the physical one! I’m very happy with the capabilities of my body as it is now. – However the journey to keep strengthening the mind and spirit is just starting, that’s why I’m traveling so much this year, not only to meet and experience the beauty of this world. But to enrich my mind and spirit with new experiences, expose myself to different cultures and ways of living. – I truly believe this will lastly translate in improvements in my capabilities to help others, as you expose yourself to more with an open heart the more empathy and understanding you can have for the situation of others. – I’ve said it before and I keep remind you babes my main purpose here in social media is to be a person of help! From the babes and guys I coach to everyone who follows to just simply enjoy the content. I try to bring you a different perspective here and there, bring you a reminder that we all are different, bring you a reminder that love and kindness will always go a long way in case of any argument. – Flower bath at @villacellabella 🥰 🙏🏻 – – Fuerza y belleza 🌸❤️ Cuando se habla de belleza, siempre debes tener en cuenta que este es un tema completamente subjetivo para los gustos personales, lo que es hermoso para mí podría no serlo para vos. Es realmente así de simple para mí, siempre tratando de ser consciente y respetuosa con los demás. – ¡Y aquí es cuando se juega con la fuerza! La fuerza tiene muchas formas, desde la física que exhibis con tus capacidades y resistencia, hasta tu capacidad mental, para mantenerte fuerte y esto

New week Fresh mindset! 🔥💪🏻 Please Read 🙏🏻#MondayMotivation Im Feeling Hungry to chase my goals! And help all my babes chase theirs!. Comment me what goals are you chasing this week 🙌🏻 – – If you are curious to watch my current diet is linked on my Bio @valentinalequeux and please subscribe to my channel! Fresh new content and helpful is coming there!❤️ – This couple of photos were taken at my leanest I’ve ever been. If you are curious this is me at 12-13% body fat, one frequent ask question when I’m super lean is if I still have my period while being this shredded. The answer is YES! And why? Simple! I didn’t starve myself to get here! And never deprived my body of any macro or micro nutrient! If you have watched every diet update I have posted you always see I have plenty of calories, sometimes I gravitate to higher carbs, or higher proteins. Fats I always keep them moderate just because my body doesn’t respond well after certain levels of fat intake. When it comes to dieting, and chase a certain goal, a certain look! The healthiest way will always be to do it SLOWLY! If you wanna get shredded the most sustainable way will always the a way that allows you to eat more! A diet that is mindful of your needs around your macro micronutrients! This way you won’t be getting mentally drained so consistently! And you have to be able to perform well in the gym! If you wanna lose that body fat while building an athletic shape! Keep and build some curves while at it! You have to include resistance training and it has to be challenging! And in order to accomplish that you need enough food (source of energy!!). And to speak about the opposite goal! Gain weight, Gain muscle mass! You have to conservative on your calorie intake if you don’t wanna gain unwanted extra fat! And not only speaking of your looks you have to be mindful of your digestive and cardiovascular system! So watching your calorie intake during a bulk process is key for your look and your health!! – If you need guidance chasing your goals you know I’m always here ready to help you! And you can ask me questions here on my comment section I always try to get as many as I can ❤️🙏🏻

Lequeux has some crazy muscle definition and can put some of her male counterparts to shame with her washboard abs. The fact that Valentina maintains her magazine-ready shape throughout the year is commendable.

Keep your mind, heart and eyes on what’s important 💕How are you getting excited about 2020 ⁉️ Please Read 🙏🏻 Save this post and visit it whenever you need it. – Taken at the incredible @museumhotel – As this year comes to an end I’m starting to see posts about how 2020 is going to be the year of_____ fill in the blank. If you really want to have a successful year you have to start now and get ahead of everyone that will be competing in your field. One thing @luisenriquepzia has taught me over our years of relationship and business together, Is to always evaluate where we are, what we are doing wrong and what have we done correctly? We take December to do that, and I encourage you to do the same. If you wanna have a really successful year. Start isolating the areas of your life that are important to you. Mine are these 5: Professional life Love life Family Friendships Health (mental, physical, spiritual). – After isolating them start by discarding the distractions around them! Visualize the big picture, and start dividing it into small goals and step that you will use towards achieving that goal. Once you’ve organized that you shall realize that many things you are investing time and energy on are just distractions! Time, right alongside health is the biggest currency you have in life! How you invest both of these into your purpose will dictate how you will fulfill your life. Your life Is either going to be a happy beautiful journey, or you will be miserable on your way to trying to achieve it! It’s your responsibility, your duty, your job to actively work towards your goals! And you only have two options around it! Either stay actively working to make the journey a joyful one or a miserable one! – If the choice is to make it a joyful one! Discipline is your biggest ally, because sometimes happiness is about having the discipline to stay the course and do the things you know will help you even if in that moment you don’t feel like doing them! – – #travel #healthylifestyle #mindfulness #motivation #traveling #positivevibes #happiness #love #couplegoals #couple #marriedlife

Lequeux has a travel bug and some of her pictures are truly scenic. The landscapes in her photos are wronged as she steals the limelight from them. Sharing the frame with Valentina is no easy task.

🌺INTIMACY & VULNERABILITY💕 – 🏠 @DelekTulum – This series of photos were taken by my husband. And couldn’t help to think about how intimate they are, and the possible criticism I may receive. One common line I always get when I post this type of content is that I should keep these moments and visuals for my husband and not post them. – The truth is, for us it doesn’t matter what we showcase here on social media because our true intimacy comes from how vulnerable and open we are with each other, on how freely we communicate our thoughts, desires, hopes, dreams and also fears, confusion, anger, sadness and any other emotion, from the brightest to the darkest. – we have learned a lot through the years of being together and have found that the key to our happiest days is having judgment free communication 🙏🏼 Always trying to put ourselves in the shoes of the other. – That type of intimacy is one that can’t really be shown on a photo or a video, that intimacy always happens behind closed doors, never filmed, never taken photos of it. It is our most private moments that build the strong bonds between us, and those moments makes us so strong that we can get all the judgment and criticism in the world and as long as we have our safe haven, we are sure that everything will be alright. – I encourage all couples to practice 100% honesty, no judgments, say what you need to say even though you think it may hurt the other person, it’s always better to be honest and open, this will help you grow as a couple faster and stronger. 💕🌺 – #DelekTulum #TashiDelek #DelekInspire #mindfulness #TulumMéxico #Tulumexperience #Tulumbeach #Tulumvibes #México #infinite #consciousness #happiness #changetheplanet #actoflove #wanderlust #peaceofmind #travel #hotel #beachhotel #vacation #toursim #beach #ocean #sea #luxurytravel #beautifuldestinations #explore #nature #adventure #landscape

In the gym, on the road, or in the kitchen, Lequeux keeps her content fresh – just like her recipes. If you are someone who gets bored with their diet quickly, trying Valentina’s new recipes will keep you busy in the kitchen.

Keeping It Real

View this post on Instagram

🙏🏼LOVE & PEACE ♥️ – 💕PLEASE READ💕 📷 @ajkphotography1 🏠 @villacellabella – Hati in Indonesian means “heart”, emphasising the spiritual meaning, more so than your actual heart. Hati hati means “watch your heart” or in other words, “take care”, “watch out” or “take it easy”. I’ve heard it used mostly in the context of “slow down”. I’m used to living in an environment where we rush everywhere, we rush to get up in the morning, we rush our lunches or even worse, we eat lunch at our desks or whilst walking on the streets, or standing up at home, we drive fast to get somewhere quickly just to rush through that activity too. This is for sure how people live here in South Florida. So… when do we ever slow down?? – My experiences in Bali we’re much like back at home. We essentially took with us our lifestyle from back home and didn’t practice hati hati. I have to be honest that @luisenriquepzia and I have a hard time with slowing down and taking life in. We’re so wrapped up in so many projects, and making a successful life for ourselves that we have a tendency to rush through life. I would love to tell you that in this photo I felt calm and in the moment. But the truth is that I was feeling some anxiety over creating the perfect content for you guys. – The experiences that I create and you see here always have a purpose behind them. I want to share with you my life, in hopes that you and I learn together how to be more in the moment, more present, feel healthy and happy, and find some meaning and purpose when lost spiritually. – So why are the Balinese so peaceful and do everything with gratitude? With love? With patience? Because they have practiced, yes practiced this lifestyle for years, this is all they know, and in turn the life’s we lead is all we know! Practicing gratitude, love, peace and patience is what we struggle with, so why not practice more of these things in hopes of leading a more bountiful life, spiritually and finally being able to let go, not be so controlling and being more at peace 🙏🏼

PDA? Yes, please. While most other fitness athletes try to hide their relationships, Valentina breaks away from this practice. She is one of the most transparent, humble, and genuine people you’ll find on the internet.

MAKING A CHANGE or START LIVING⁉️ – 📷@inline_photography Gym @gee.gym – Before I get into today’s talk, I want to thank everyone who’s already signed up for my 8 week challenge ! You guys have me SOOO excited to see some major mind, health and body changes. And for everyone who is asking, yesterday’s post has all the info on how to enter, I still have spots open don’t worry! – Now to the REAL TALK…This isn’t your typical “NEW YEAR NEW YOU” bunch of sappy stuff, stick around because this is about to get real… – Making a living, vs LIVING, and actually taking a risk, so big that you don’t know if the outcome will be good, or bad, is scary AF!!! For all you guys that have been reading my posts for years, have come to see some major achievements in my life, and I’ll tell you what, behind EVERY SINGLE ONE of them was a scary decision made. Not a lazy one, not a half ass one, a FULL BLOWN decision made to do something SCARY (yes I have to CAP LOCK those words, trying to make an impact here…) – Ok, yes we’ve heard it before, “Take a leap,” “take a risk…” blah blah blah. But what people don’t talk enough about, is the reality, what it looks like after the fact that you take that risk, that leap. I’m not going to sugarcoat it, because, well, when do I ever sugarcoat anything around here? ITS SCARY and it REAL, and there will be tears of happiness, of sadness, of fear, but man I have NEVER felt more alive, more full of energy and more HAPPY than in THOSE moments guys. I’M SERIOUS! – I want you all to understand one thing, and one thing only, I am NOT perfect, and I don’t pretend to know eveything but what I am doing here, every single day is taking a leap into the UNKNOWN, and taking risks and failing, and trying again, and picking myself up every time things don’t go my way, why? Because I have already seen the math work, I have seen that after so much hard work, learning and trials and errors that when I seek out what I want badly enough and I GET SHIT done, guess what? I get it. – So? How badly do you want that thing you’re thinking about right now? Take the risk, do it, and don’t be lazy. The only reason you won’t get it is because you didn’t try it to begin with.

There could be no better way to end the article than sharing a quote by Valentina herself – “Everyone needs to understand that your body is capable of amazing things and you can shape it and build it to its highest potential.”
