Goal is to feel comfortable in this bad boy by mid June. It fits now, but it’s a little snugggggg lol . I’ve really been struggling to get to the gym during this clinical due to my work hours and long commute. I alternate between early and late days and I keep telling my self I’ll fit the gym in. But it hasn’t happened yet 🙃. Hoping to start it back up this week. If anyone has any tips please drop them in my comments! #dangerouslyfitt#bathingsuitseason#bathingsuitgoals#cardio#weights#pcosfitness#pcosweightlossjourney
Long cardio sessions may not work so well for PCOS. It’s tempting just to stick to the cardio machine section of the gym. But if you have PCOS, your best bet is to do a mix of strength training and shorter cardio sessions. If you’re looking for a workout program designed specifically for PCOS.

I could (and did) cry. Last time I did this race was in 2012. I wasn’t my heaviest weight, but was on my way there. I was dead last. Literally. My best friend had to beg them to stop tearing down the finish sign. The beer garden was over and I couldn’t take part in any of the festivities. I don’t say this often, but I am damn proud of myself. I can’t wait til next year. I already have a goal in mind to crush. Fight against your obstacles. Even if they are you vs. you. Do it. Rise up. Fight for your life. #stpatsdash#pcosfitness#pcos#weightlossjourney#weightlossmotivation
Working out is a skill that takes time to learn. It is ok to go to the gym for the first time and feel completely confused Learning to work out is a process and you need to cut yourself some slack! Don’t give up if your first month of working out is not exactly perfect. You’ll get there with practice.

Thank god today my Friday not sure I have one more 4am workout in me. This week was rough but I was determined to push though.
When you have a why as strong as mine you don't give up easy. Between my why and my tribe of people who support me I refuse to quit. I refuse to go back to my old ways.
So while 4am was rough this week it was nothing some preworkout loud music and heavy weights couldn't fix.

Wow. Can I just take a minute and share with you all how grateful I am? As I write these words, my eyes are becoming filled with tears because I’m FINALLY embracing the woman I was created to be. Its scary, exciting, overwhelming, but FULFILLING. ✨
Three years ago when I decided to become a virtual health coach, I had NO idea what God had in store for me. I came to realize that I had a gift and that was simply a desire to help other women who were struggling, just like me. I became intentional about sharing my life, my journey through social media and the response has been overwhelming positive, encouraging, and humbling.
I don’t have all the answers. I don’t have any secrets. I’m a broken woman, mother, wife, sister, friend who is willing to join you on your journey and share what I am personally doing and what is helping me see RESULTS. What is helping me find JOY in life, exactly where I am at, even if its not where I ULTIMATELY want to be. ✨
If you are seeking to grow, seeking MORE - I’d love to chat with you about your goals, how I can help you reach them and help encourage and mentor YOU to be a light and encourager to others. I will share ALL of my knowledge with you and will walk along beside you as you build YOUR own journey.
Don’t be like me and watch everyone else accomplish their goals and dreams. Make a decision that NOW is YOUR turn. Check out my site, comment below, or message me so we can get to know each other and encourage one another!

Throw away the scale, cut off the tags if you need to. It's not about being a certain size or weight. 🎚
It's about FINALLY getting to the point where you actually LOVE your body. You love your body enough to eat healthy, exercise, and to treat yourself the way YOU deserve. 💖
Now THAT is when magical things happen. 💫
These powerful little seeds can support women with PCOS in a very big way.
Flaxseeds are known as one of the world’s "superfoods" and have been cultivated for centuries.
Flaxseeds aid in hormone balance and have so many other amazing health benefits.
They are loaded with anti-inflammatory healthy fats in the form of omega 3 fatty acids (plant-based so different from wild caught salmon and other cold water fish), as well as fiber, lignans and protein.
Flax seeds can be either brown or golden in color and found whole or ground in your local supermarket.
The lignans in flaxseeds are a type of polyphenol that act as an antioxidant helping with hormone-balancing, anti-aging and cellular regeneration. >> Click link in bio to read more!
