Piglet...I mean, Penelope, waiting for a bite. #cats #catmom
Gettin’ some loves after another prep workout.
I love when she’s extra cuddly!
There are days when I get frustrated with my weight loss journey. Today is one of them. I’m not seeing great results today, Im not feeling comfortable with myself. I feel like I have gone backwards instead of forwards.
It’s days like today that I have to push myself even harder during my workout and really focus on how far I have come.
I am thankful for my accountability group that helps push me every day.

⬅️ May 13, 2018. The day I decided I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I was sick of feeling uncomfortable within my own skin. I was tired of feeling like shit all the time. ➡️ Fast forward to now, November 20, 2018. I’m confident in my skin. I don’t feel like shit all the time. I know how to properly fuel my body, but still indulge sometimes. I know how to control the controllable. I’ve grown so much not only physically but in my mental health since that first before picture. When are you going to decide you want to stop watching and join me?! 💜
Heading to Helen Devos with my son... he cane home again yesterday! Let’s hope the nurse we get isn’t the lady who gave us “bad” news a few weeks ago or I’ll give her a piece of my mind!
Pray for answers... this has gone in too long and my poor kid! (Holy moly my hair looks crazy long in this picture and don’t mind the shiny forehead, I’ve been battling a headache all morning and bathed myself in peppermint essential oil) ♥️
Love of my life. 🐕 Just after my cat and right before my boyfriend! 🙈
Happy Birthday to my Momma Weezie! We’ve had a good year together - lots of visits and a couple of surprise ones too! Love you Weezie! ❤️😽😍 #momma #Weezie #mom #birthday #catmom
Seriously ecstatic today. I am going to be in-between programs for a bit so I am just going to play around and try out different types of workouts
It just so happened the one I did today was absolutely perfect for me and I LOVED it 😍
It just reminded me, not everything is for everyone, and you have to find what’s right for YOU. That’s what is going to keep exercise sustainable long term
If you don’t enjoy it, it’s time to find something else. Don’t know where to start? I’ve got you-there is something out there for you too ❤️
Happy to chat with you about it 😊
The look on my face when I think about the burrito I’m going to have once this programs over😍🌯 #cometomama
The evaluation of Mercy lol I can't believe how big she is now! I've known her since she was a newborn and at first she didn't really like being bothered and when I went to visit her she wanted nothing to do with me but to my surprise once she came to to live with me she took to me right away and even cuddled with me all night the first night I had her <3 Now she's so happy and full of energy and I love her and Tadashi to pieces <3
Mi gatita esta enferma (aún se está curando de la gripa) por lo que tengo que darle con una geringa aceite de salmón y su pasta de vitaminas, siempre que se la doy se "encierra" en el cubículo de su rascador y me mira con cara de odio por al menos una hora .... Yo también te quiero Midna.
A month ago I literally filled out these jeans, all my pants were tight 😮
This was including my dress pants, jeans, and even some leggings 😬
I had this exact same struggle happen last year around this time and told myself “it’s bulking season you’ve just been working really hard at putting on muscle” 😆 Ha that was such an excuse I made for myself
I used to be into the whole thing the fitness community pushes as bulking over the winter and then cutting for summer.
If you don’t know what I mean by this,it means build muscle in the winter and then reduce your calories and add cardio in the spring to get that summer body.
Social media makes it seem like this “fullproof plan” is easy and that anyone can do it. It only took me two years and being fed up with not getting results to realize bulking and cutting wasn’t worth my time.
I shifted my mindset from this yo-yo dieting approach to just becoming healthier and getting fit. At first I wasn’t sure where to turn I had said to myself “just give this program a month and it’ll work” so many times that I was worn out.
I was tired of not having the body or health I wanted and being stuck.
One of my friends was doing posting about how she had found a routine that had worked for her and said it was 4 times a week with 30-40 minute workouts.
At first I was like how can spending only 30 minutes and working out 4 times a week actually work? That’s less than what I do now. But I saw her results and her confidence in what she was doing and said “alright I’m in” one last time.
Surprisingly this plan fit my schedule so much better and in a few weeks I saw results. First I stopped becoming stressed over having to workout so many times a week for hours and not seeing any results. I was seeing results within two weeks and my energy and mood was better than it’s been in years. I also used all of the nutrition advice that was already in my app to further my results. It told me not to count calories or macros and to just follow this meal plan that would nourish my body from inside out. I didn’t believe at first.
It’ll be a freaking miracle if this works I told myself... (read the comment for more it’s worth it I promise)
