Taking even the smallest step is important when you wanna change. So excited to start this in 5 days! #DietBet @molsinspire
Snack: my colleagues and I decided a fro-yo run was essential for this nice day! I always love the original tart flavor with some fruit 🤤
Real talk!! There are days I don’t “feel” like going to the gym. I stop to recognize that what I feel is just that.... a simple feeling!! Once you get over the feeling part, you are good to go. For many years I spent using my feelings as excuses. That was pretty weak of me to tell you the truth. It is when I get this feeling that I push the hardest! I REFUSE to use my emotions as excuses and to fall behind or off track. I am the owner of my feelings and they do what I tell them to do 💪🏻🔥😂 NOW, GO AND KICK ASS MY FRIENDS!
Love sending LOVE ❤️ It’s the last couple of days of our free group and we are showering our girls who are showing up with love!
Super excited to see how the ladies do in our next group starting on May 7th 👍🏽😃
👉🏽If you would like to hear more about our group and how to join, DM me and I will fill you in!👌🏽
😍So excited to share this opportunity with so many lovely ladies and to send out more love ❤️
This is the first weight loss/ diet book 📖 I’ve ever read!! Half way through! Definitely a lot of phycological insight about over eating. Any recommendation on my next book I should read?
I had a great workout day today! Thirty minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes on the treadmill. I did a walk/run of course. I have to say hat I’m feeling stronger as I run. I just have to take it slow and easy. .
I switched things up a bit today. I went to a different gym location because they have a shallow pool lengths to length. I wanted to do laps but need a kickboard. They didn’t have any so I have to buy one. I have right shoulder pain so until that subsides flutter kicks laps in the pool will have to do! But hey, I feel weightless in the pool and I’m getting a good workout. Speaking of welding weightless, I’m glad that I chose to take up swimming because it helps me to not feel the weight of my body when I’m doing cardio such as running. I’m fine with strength training because I’m strong. Strength training is my favorite!! .
Tomorrow Is my full body strength training day. My goal tomorrow is to try at least one new piece of equipment! Because switching things up every few weeks to shock the system is a good thing. It keeps my body guessing plus for someone like me who gets bored easily, I like trying new and different things. I’m feeling great this week. Getting in really good sleep because I’ve trained each day this week so far since Monday. Honestly I haven’t been thinking about it. I’ve just been thinking about consistency and staying the course. I e been meditating on this scripture this week:
Hebrews 12: 1-2
1 Since we have such a huge crowd of men of faith watching us from the grandstands, let us strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back, and especially those sins that wrap themselves so tightly around our feet and trip us up; and let us run with patience the particular race that God has set before us.
2 Keep your eyes on Jesus, our leader and instructor.
2nd place in my gym’s biggest loser competition! These winnings go straight towards the kayak I’m buying on Monday! 🤗
I’ve lost 7️⃣ pounds in 1️⃣0️⃣ days!!! 🎉🙌🏽🙈 I’ve been consistently counting calories, eating mostly a clean vegan diet, and working out every other day! 📝🥗🚴🏽♀️ Don’t get it twisted though, I have eaten out multiple times, have had a few drinks, and indulged a couple of days ago in Mac & cheese! 🍷 It’s ALL about balance so if I indulge every now and then it won’t derail me! 😏 Today I went for a long walk with my 🐶 and did the Flex Fire & Studio Stretch Sesh with Studio Tone it Up! 💪🏽🧘🏼♀️#toneitup #tiuteam #studiotoneitup #tiuprotein #dietbet @toneitup @toneitupnutrition

- Let’s talk about the girl on the left. Happy, passionate, and could easily throw down a meal, let me tell you! 😂✊🏼 But she could barely fit into jeans, could never wear buttoned up blouses, and even tennis shoes were too tight to wear. Fast forward to the girl on the right. Still happy, still passionate, and can still throw down a meal! 🤘🏼But the girl on the right now wears jeans that are too big, blouses that finally drape down her body instead of getting stuck on her stomach, and can comfortably lace up some Chuck Taylors. A lot has happened in a year and these #sidebyside
photos are proof. I also discovered I have a neck, which is a miracle in itself. 😜
DIETBET UPDATE = aka "Why I'm probably going to fail my latest one, and why that's OK...." 🤓 ☆
So the Sprinting Into Spring with Jessica DietBet Challenge officially ends today, and I've only got until the morning (UK time) to enter my official 'weigh out' figure. I reckon I've got 4lbs to lose to reach my 10lb target, I'm probably not going to magically lose the last few pounds overnight, but you know what? That is absolutely fine with me. ☆
I've lost 6lbs, that's virtually half a stone and I have NEVER, EVER lost 6lbs so easily, with such determination and concentration on eating healthy every single day. "Hello? New state of mind, who dis?!" 😄😅 ☆
Sure I'll be gutted to not be sharing part of the winning pot with the awesome and well-deserving winners and yes, after my first failed attempt at a Dietbet Challenge back in January I'm now $65 dollars down! 🙈😯🙈 But I'm already into my 3rd entry with Fat Girl Fed Up's current challenge, that I know I CAN lose pounds without constantly beating myself up with negative voices saying I don't deserve to even try. I CAN eat a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday and feel just awesome enough in myself for actually putting in the effort and trying. And a massive congratulations to all who HAVE smashed their goals this week! ✌✌✌🤗 ☆
How are YOU staying focused and on track this week? I'm going to make a concerted effort to drink more water and get more steps in everyday this week 😎 ☆ #dietbet #fitfam #weightloss #workinprogress #weightlossjourney #challenge #update #slimdown #poundsdown #poundstogo #sprintingintospringwithjessica #fatgirlfedup #dietbetchallenge #fitness #igotthis #yougotthis #wegotthis #whodis #happy #happydays #beproud #begoodtoyourself #bekindtoyourself #healthyeating #healthyliving #healthylife
What can I say, just another bump in the road I guess! Summer is almost here, there's no way I'm backing down now! #NeverGiveUp
Here’s a little bit of motivation for you from my client @katiegets_fit_
💜 Her starting weight was 364 pounds and she’s now sitting at 286 and still going. 😈💪🏻 Some of the personal obstacles she’s working on overcoming are emotional/ stress eating along with certain limitations to exercise (no knee dominant exercises). We’re finding new ways of making her training fun and personalized to her interests rather than overloading on HIIT cardio... that way she doesn’t hate me or her workouts. 😜 She’s currently doing one-on-one coaching, which includes the training program and macros with weekly calls to keep her on point and accountable. ❤️👊🏻 She’s someone I’ve been wanting to introduce you to for so long and glad finally to let you know about her! 👾 If you’re interested in coaching, sign up with the link in bio! Stay tuned for updates on her progress! 🙌🏻
Lately I’ve been really struggling mentally🌪
Just tons of things happening in my life
that caused my depression to come back
Also my progress being in a jam
So here’s a a couple photos with me and my kitties 💕
I’ve been fairly quiet on insta but still working hard
I’m looking at the next few weeks in days rather than a whole. Each day is new and unique in its on way
My eatings been going really well but my workout not so much
So I’m working hard to change that

I have been struggling for the past week. Over the weekend I hit 180 and over the past few days I've wiggled from 180-181.5 even though my exercise and diet have been great. Today on my way home from work "Since You Been Gone", by Kelly Clarkson came on. I sat there thinking that without all of the people that have walked out on me I'm not sure I would have ever started this journey. I've bounced from relationship to relationship and for once it's been all about me. I am finally in the 170's! I've never seen this number! The last weight I recorded from highschool is somewhere in the 160s. I didn't step on a scale again until years later when I was in the 190s. Happy Thursday! :) #170s #happy #soexcited #hardworkpaysoff #dontgiveup #youreworthit #yourestrongerthanyouthink #youcandothis #fatgirlfedupdietbet #dietbet #fedupfam #thejourney
