Home MOTIVATION TAMRA DAE’S BEST INSTAGRAM SHOTS Tamra Dae - The game that changed me. Growing up I played every sport imaginable. In high school I had to choose one sport because of conflict of seasons so I chose soccer and never looked back. It allowed me so many opportunities and taught be responsibility and accountability. I cherish every second I had on the pitch and wouldn't trade any of the injuries or battle scars. I love soccer and it will always be in my blood no matter what! Even if it's just for noon at the pub yelling at my favorite team to settle down!! Haha MOTIVATION TAMRA DAE’S BEST INSTAGRAM SHOTS Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter TAMRA DAE INSTAGRAM: tamradae FACEBOOK: Tamra Dae SNAPCHAT: ItsMeTamraD TWITTER: @TamraDae Tamra Dae – Soccer played a huge part in shaping the person that I am. It taught me responsibility, accountability, dedication, team work, gave me self esteem, and a sense of self-worth that I didn’t have outside of the sport. I honestly don’t know where I would be without the experiences I had. I trained brutally hard for 15 years of my life and the discipline that went along with that I carry with me in my life pursuing my current passions. I know how far I can push my body and that physical limits are just in our head.. all depends on how much you want to work to get better and stronger. Patience and diligence is essential with everything. Time is not linear. It will come back around if it’s meant to and the effort is there. I am so grateful for my experiences, I’m not where I thought I would be when I used to envision my life but I’m right where I want to be!! Tamra Dae – hey say “strike while the iron’s hot” …but the iron is always hot when you control the plug Tamra Dae – happy Sunday!! Tamra Dae – Take time to reflect and feel the gratitude for the things you have right now in this current state of being and be good with nothing more. Then take a deep breath and keep pushing on and watch the pieces start to come together. The only part of the equation you can control is your thoughts. Let them be positive and ever flowing. Let them wander and evolve and most of all let them support you and your vision. You’re the only one that can hold yourself back, use your powerful mind to propel you. Visualize your next step…then leap. Have you stopped to look at the choices you are making each and every day to get closer to your goals? Are they in line with what really needs to happen to make them a reality? Sometimes we get overwhelmed by the bigger picture and think that it’s not something we can accomplish because it’s bigger than us but the reality is we make it that way in our heads. If you break down what you need to do little by little to get there it will happen. I have the same problem making mountains out of molehills so I have to stop myself and remember one day at a time. One project at a time. One moment, one decision, one breath. Slow down and enjoy the process, the grind, the hustle.#BODYBYTAMRA# Tamra Dae#TrainLikeT The journey you take in life is not for anyone to understand, it’s for you and you alone. It’s a lifelong process of self discovery and acceptance. We are ever changing beings who get hurt, feel regret and happiness and have doubts and fears but we are human. No matter where you are in life if you want something different for yourself you can make it happen. Don’t let others opinions of you and your dreams sway your decisions. They aren’t going to pay your bills or tuck you in at night. You have to be your own biggest fan.There will be many that doubt your capabilities and will not see or respect your vision. That’s ok!! It’s YOUR dream not theirs. You don’t have to explain it to anyone. If they tell you to do it a certain way or not to do it at all tell them to F*CK OFF kindly lol. If you “fail” you fail on your terms (although I believe there are no failures only learning lessons and building blocks for the next venture). We get one of these beautiful amazing lives and I’m sure as hell not gonna let someone NOT living mine tell me how I should spend my time! #BRICKHAUSBODY#Tamra Dae Hard work yields results…Plain and simple.Set a goal-ignore the naysayers-be consistent-forgive yourself- don’t stop until you are satisfied!! I will always be a work in progress, that’s life. Both mentally and physically I want to continue to grow, however it is so important to celebrate the small victories and be able to live in the moment and relish the hard work. Leo’s struggle with this and I’m no exception.#BRICKHAUSBODY#Tamra Dae Being tested for something better.. Trust and believe.#Tamra Dae This weather may be cramping my outdoor workouts but it’s sure not gonna make me stop hitting the gym!! Building my #BRICKHAUSBODY are you?! “The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights. – Muhammad AliWhat people see or assume is far different that how it actually is. We all are fighting different battles behind closed doors. The face you put on might not be how you really feel but bravery and strength don’t allow others to see your weaknesses. Just know sometimes your vulnerabilities make you stronger. People can connect with those and lift you up because they understand it too. I am trying to become the best version of myself while staying true to what I believe in and creating content to motivate and inspire. No one sees behind closed doors and that’s ok because it is not for anyone to understand but myself. I am aligning myself with the right people for reasons that are not of monetary value as many of you wont grasp but in due time will make sense. Enjoying the process and the journey is my number one goal and being happy with myself at the end of the day is the only battle I am truly up against. Find your passions, set your goals, and don’t explain yourself to anyone.. Just go after it and make your soul happy!! #Tamra Dae#BRICKHAUSBODYLens: @macphotolaMakeup: @ninasmakeupHair: @karahfrances Smashed leg day on an empty stomach.

Thank you to everyone that has been following my journey and to those newly aboard this crazy ride. I am so grateful to have each and every one of your support!! Enjoy today whether it’s relaxing or getting things done on your list! Workout, get outside, hang with friends/family. Make the most of it! #BODYBYTAMRA#TamraD It’s bout to get real hot in Miami.#BODYBYTAMRA#TamraD I’m taking up hiking thanks to my girl @ninasmakeup I totally forgot how amazing it feels to be around nature and overlook a city that can swallow people up whole and cause them to be jaded and insincere. It’s overwhelming sometimes to be starting businesses on my own and building a brand with nothing and no one to fall back on. Trust is a major issue for me and relinquishing control. I want to handle everything but sometimes it’s necessary to let others help. I am trying to find the balance in that. Everyday is a learning process. I have been hurt and misguided just like everyone else and so I fear having it done to me again. Being strong and courageous is a battle but I’m fighting for it because it’s all I know how to be. I am ready for anything that’s thrown my way and if I only have a handful of people in my corner I’m OK with that.#BODYBYTAMRA#Tamra Dae#TamraD That moment you realize the long hours, time spent away from those you love, making hard choices and commitment to your passion was all worth it! The sky is the limit if you’re willing to jump high enough. –straight off the camera from @eyevision_production during our video shoot at @metroflexlbc thanks for having me!#BODYBYTAMRA#TamraD#TrainLikeT Monday Motivation#BODYBYTAMRA#TamraD#TrainLikeT From the amazing shoot for @hawkersco glasses@ryanastamendiphotography behind the lens@evilyn_mua on the makeup@ah3hairstylist for the locks@montce_swim bikini#BODYBYTAMRA#TamraD Beat The HeatIt’s National Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven !! #nationalSlurpeeDay #Slurpee #summer #7-eleven #SPKslurpeeselfie#TamraD#BODYBYTAMRA Only you know the real me#BODYBYTAMRA#TamraD What do you guys do for fun? I love getting outside and being active. I used to longboard as a teenager and I miss it so much. Going to make a point to try activities I used to do for fun as a kid.#active #fitness #summer #skateboard #life #love #sports #fitlife#BODYBYTAMRA#TamraD Keep it 8 more than 92 with yourself first. Only real people will stick around once you know your worth and can see through the bullsh*t.#BODYBYTAMRA#TamraD#Tamra Dae Don’t let others drain your energy!! Seize today and make the absolute most out of it. You won’t get it back. If something is keeping you from pursuing your passions your first step is to let it go. Nothing should stand in the way of you and your dreams. Clear the path so your energy can be put solely where you need it. Be alone if that’s the only person who serves your best interest, otherwise only surround yourself with people who uplift you and believe in your dream. In due time it will come to light who is actually there to support not mooch or drag you down. Recognize the fakes and remember it’s ok to go against the grain and have others think you’re crazy or it can’t be done. YOU are strong enough!! tag someone who is getting after their dreams!! #Tamra Dae#BODYBYTAMRA I’m not always in gym clothes!! Ok I am but not when I’m working! Shooting for @fashionnova with @ryanastamendiphotography and @4janine# Tamra Dae#BODYBYTAMRA I couldn’t wait for him to send me an edited one! sorry @zavierdeangelo# Tamra Dae#BrickHausBody If you don’t look a little crazy after your workout you probably didn’t go hard enough!!! Tag your girl with the crazy hair after her workout! I like her..she knows what’s up #BRICKHAUSBODY# Tamra Dae Be the type of woman to stop them dead in their tracks… #BRICKHAUSBODY# Tamra Dae “Everybody pities the weak… Jealousy you have to earn” -Arnold Schwarzenegger. @harrylhgfx#BRICKHAUSBODY# Tamra Dae Good morning! Take a few minutes to thank the universe for the ability to breathe another day and to pursue what you love. If you haven’t started it’s never too late. Think about what is stopping you from risking it all on happiness. You never know if you’ll succeed if you don’t try.#riskhappy# Tamra Dae#BRICKHAUSBODY What we call our destiny is truly our character and that character can be altered. The knowledge that we are responsible for our actions and attitudes does not need to be discouraging, because it also means that we are free to change this destiny. One is not in bondage to the past, which has shaped our feelings, to race, inheritance, background. All this can be altered if we have the courage to examine how it formed us. We can alter the chemistry provided we have the courage to dissect the elements.-Anaïs Nin#character #courage #destiny #empowerment #responsibility#BRICKHAUSBODY# Tamra Dae We all go through changes. Accept yourself at every stage in your life. It’s all a process and it’s all progress.@ricothevillain # Tamra Dae#BRICKHAUSBODY Tamra Dae – I don’t consider myself a model.. I model for clothing companies and product lines.. I still am a freelance spray tan technician with my own business that I’ve had for more than 8 years. I love my clients that have watched me transition in my life and stuck by me through my trying times. I train friends out of love for them and because i want to help. I am working on my brand which encompasses many facets and takes TIME.. Patience is definitely a virtue that I am learning to have more of. Besides my college degrees, my strength and resilience is what I’m most proud of. Staying true to my beliefs and passions. They may not be in line with society’s views of “success” or what most may think of my life.. But believe me when I say NO one will sway me into thinking I have to sell other companies’ products on Instagram to make it.. Thank you to everyone that writes to me and asks me for my advice on fitness and nutrition and my career path and how I got “here” (I’ll discuss that soon) and just know it’s only me doing this all. I try to respond to everyone and give the best advice I can from my knowledge or that of others I know are experts. Please be patient as I try to reach more of you. I want you to know I believe in bettering yourself naturally from a mental and physical standpoint. I’m busy working on myself ‘EVERYDAE’ and I encourage you to do the same. Be introspective. Ask yourself what it is you truly want and how are you going to go about getting it. I promise you it’s not by purchasing this or that. It’s about HARD WORK and consistency!! Building my BRICK HAUS BODY is far more than a physical transformation. I am learning about true inner confidence and self respect. I encourage everyone to take time to remember what makes your soul happy and do more of that. I may not be traveling the road that most expect from me but at the end of the day when I lay my head on my pillow I want to know I have done my best to put good out there and follow what’s in my heart.#BRICKHAUSBODY#BuildItAndTheyWillCome# Tamra Dae#TrainLikeT Double tap for plain hard work# Tamra Dae#BRICKHAUSBODY “Tell me what you know about dreams, what you know about having faithIn something you can’t see, tell me how much do you believe”@bigsean# Tamra Dae#BRICKHAUSBODY@13o5 Tamra Dae – The game that changed me.
