As of today, I have officially finished @liift4
! The 8 week program had challenged me in so many ways! In all honesty I didn’t want to post this, I mean I gained weight (1 pound) and only lost 5 inches total (swipe right to see my actual numbers), plus the pictures aren’t “perfect”, but you know what? I finished the challenge. I succeeded where I thought I wouldn’t. I kept going no matter what. My amazing support system, including my coach @abbyfresonkefitness
made me accountable when I really needed it. A year from now, I’ll look at this pictures in a completely different mind set and place in my life, but for now I am proud of myself! I feel more comfortable in my own skin then I have ever felt before, and I can’t wait to continue this lifestyle journey!
Myself along with a few of my favorite people are running a challenge group starting Monday! Everyone is different so my results can and will be different than anyone else’s, but I can help you obtain the results you want! It’s a perfect time as you’ll have a great head start to the New Year Resolutions! Message me with questions about the challenge group or drop me a 🎄 below! 💕
Looks are one thing, but the benefits of having lost 32 pounds are still mind blowing to me!!
I sleep better at night, which in turn helps with weight loss. It’s a great cycle to be on. At 52, almost 53, I have more energy to play with my granddaughter, Lillian. Her and I play on the floor for hours...I love the memories that are being made there.
For once, I feel comfortable in my own skin and clothes. It’s the way I know I deserve to feel. My confidence is growing, no more hiding behind the camera. I actually don’t mind being in front of it.
That’s just a few of the benefits I have GAINED with my weight LOSS. I Love the play on words, lol
. . .
My tremendous weight loss was partly due to an incredible (Clean) weight loss system that jumped started my journey. It fueled something within me! It’s hard to describe but I’m forever thankful to my friend who introduced me to it!
Been trying to upload this #tuesdayselfacceptance
post since yesterday but my Instagram is bugging out on me so sorry for the delay but here we are at 8 weeks left so you don’t have to submit your hashtags this week but I wanted to share that while I am smiling in this picture , it is not because I am necessarily always happy. I’m smiling because I’ve had a rough year so far; and you know what I’m still here and I am grateful to be here. I may have a lot of issues that have caused me to be in the headspace I fight every day but if it was not for some of my choices I made I may not have learned some of the valuable life lessons it taught me or had my 2 beautiful children. We choose what does and doesn’t define us or forge our paths. It is no one’s decision but ours. The first thing we all have to do is be aware of ourselves , and seperate our wants from needs and make peace with the demons we battle so we can over time learn to forgive ourselves, care for ourselves better and keep moving forward. You all have a purpose. Each and every one of you are meant to be here and it’s ok to feel down if things suck at times. But please know you can always reach out. You are never a burden even if in your head you feel you are. Keep fighting. You’ve got this. I believe in each and every one of you that you can pick yourselves back up. Don’t ever give up on yourself even when others do. xx -A #singersongwriter #feelings #mentalhealth #melbourne #australiangirl #blondehair #blueeyes #nomakeup #zalahairextensions #myownskin #mumlife #heyheyamethyst
I spent a good portion of my young adult life caring what other people thought. Friends. Peers. Boyfriends. I made myself become who I thought THEY would like. I had zero idea who I was. My confidence was nonexistent and I was a pretty unhappy/sad person on the inside.
What has changed? Perhaps age. A deep understanding of who I am and who I was created to be by my Father in Heaven.
I must say, it feels darn liberating to no longer care what people may think or say about me. In fact, it’s really none of my business. If you’ve struggled with this or currently do struggle, be encouraged. There is freedom in not trying to constantly please others. You are freaking amazing just the way you are and there is ONLY one you!
OWN IT 👊🏽
Fuck a Tuesday, I wanna share it today
Left: 215lbs, XL shirts, 36 waist, no fucking goals! Just drinking my ass off, eating like shit daily with legit no desire to change it. Mentally, I just didn’t give a shit and my body was a reflection of my state of mind
Right: 178lbs, M shirts, 34 (almost 32) waist. No where near my end goal but on my way there. More mindful of what goes in my body and even though I crave and have my crappy meals here and there, I sweat my ass off to earn them. I understand balance and do my best to practice it to the best of my ability. My mind is clearer and driven and my body is now beginning to reflect it
Change begins here 🧠 Get your mind right, get in tune with yourself from within and watch the power of your mind go to work. 🍺 Cheers to change, transformation, growth and the never ending journey...
