This side by side is 9 months in the making...the picture on the left is from December 2016 after losing 50 pounds and hitting my goal weight. I was so proud of myself, because it was NOT easy. I had to put in work everyday with my fitness and nutrition, over 17 months to be exact! --
The picture on the right is me, 34 weeks pregnant, and 35 pounds heavier. I am STILL so proud of myself because it still hasn't been easy. I STILL put in work everyday with my fitness and my nutrition. 🤰🏽
I could have used my pregnancy as an excuse to not continue on my journey. But as we struggled to even conceive our boy, I decided to create the best environment that I knew how within my own body. --
I learned over the last few years of changing my lifestyle not to take my body or my health for granted! I have seen the effects of neglecting your health and fitness on so many people around me, including family members and I didn't want that for my family anymore! 💪🏾
That is why I am so passionate about helping women change their lives through health and fitness! It feels so good to just feel good...and I think every woman should feel that way!
If you are reading this and you have taken your health for granted and want to take a step towards change, then I want to help you! You deserve to feel amazing and strong! Let's chat, my friend and talk about your goals for your life! Simply comment below or message me and I would love to have an honest conversation with you! 💖
Whenever you upgrade your iPhone 📱 make sure you re-pair your watch BEFORE you go to the Gym!! Didn’t get it all recorded on the watch but I can feel it! Lets get this weekend started!! This is day 148.
FINALLY THE WEEKEND 🙌🏼 This week has went way too slow & was tough for me. It’s so so easy on social media to show the good and positive of everything. But really, to keep it real we should be showing and telling both the bad and good right? Here it goes. •
This morning I was picking myself apart in the mirror. Down on myself about the fact that I couldn’t fit in my double zero jeans from before recovery happened. Telling myself that I’ve only gained bad weight. •••
It’s easy to get into that slump. But what’s hard is picking yourself up and getting out of your head at times like that. So why do what’s easy? That’s boring. Go for the hard. •••
I have so much to be proud of. Recovery is hard and yet here I am doing it. Every single day. •••
I encourage you to go for what’s hard and to not do what’s easy. You’ll thank yourself later. And so will your body. We all have those down days but what matters is how you move forward. ••• YOU CAN DO IT BC YOU R STRONG 💪
Ps to the lady walking in on me taking selfies 👋🤷🏼♀️ xoxo •••
Okay...so I'm doing legs and chest days at real gyms as often as possible (sorry planet fitness, I love you for real. lol)
I'm needing to get my weight up and get used to lifting these bars again.
1st video: this was after doing 8 sets on the incline so I can't wait to see where I'm at next time.
2nd video: I'm still scared to get the weight up alone. BUT I'm super proud of my strength because this was my third exercise, I did 3 sets with the 35lbs dumbbells and was till able to push the 40s. Yasssss
