WELL THIS IS HILARIOUS! I am a huge advocate of #intuitiveeating
and not restricting yourself every moment of every day. So today I intuitively slammed three kokanees because it was hot AF outside and we were enjoying a day at the cabin with my parents 😜🏖🍺 I did enjoy a couple hot dogs sans bun when we had lunch, no bun only because we had massive sausage buns that didn’t really appeal to me.. but I am pretty happy with the fact that I didn’t even have to buy low carb beer to have a good time on a hot day ☀️ That stick is SERIOUSLY purple, scale is lower than its been in months, Apple Watch rings are filled with zero extra effort, and I am gloriously tanned after rockin a BIKINI on the beach all day. Happy summer, people... remember to enjoy yourself and not let carbs control your life! I’ll be adding more fat to my diet next week as an experiment but truthfully I don’t feel I need it right now and am functioning GREAT so far with less than 100g of fat daily. Usually feel too full to eat much, so I don’t bother adding a ton of extra fat into my diet.

Not feeling my planned leg workout, so I’m just gonna wing it!! 🏋🏾♀️
Needed protein immediately after my workout 🏋️ so I grabbed this gem per my awesome trainer & friends request @elitefit1621_
he knows my sweet tooth is vicious at times 🤣 and since cutting sugar out completely I had a scare last week and he said woman you are permitted 😂 eat the sugar (in the Ike voice)🤦🏽♀️ Not gonna lie, it was awesome 😋! And I don’t say that often when it comes to protein, coz let’s face it, that after taste is 🤢 but this one here does NOT have an after taste! Anddddd it’s gluten free! 😮 Good to have an alternative to my regular shake when I’m running errands 👌🏾 #protein #proteinshake #proteinonthego #pureprotein #glutenfree #glutenfreeproducts
I know it's a tiny number in the grand scheme of things, but it's an exciting milestone for #pcosfitfighter
nonetheless! I didn't create this account in order to get thousands of followers. So long as one person is able to get something useful from it, whether that's a recipe, lifestyle tip or some general motivation, I'm a happy bunny. But obviously I'm not going to turn down the opportunity to celebrate with bucketfuls of peanut butter 😋
When the barista ask ...You must be tired? after you make your drink order. You KNOW it’s a shit ton of caffeine coming your way!
Got an unsweetened grande cold brew w/ a blond espresso shot. When I get home I’ll add a scoop of protein and some half & half 😋
is done! I was driving the struggle bus this morning like you wouldn’t believe! I was suffering after having a marg or two last night. Legit haven’t had that much sugar in AGES and my tummy was not having it this morning. But, I pushed through because I want my next phase results to be even better than my phase 1 results!! Dialing in the nutrition is definitely the hardest part for me, but I know that abs are most definitely made in the kitchen!! .
My next boot camp has 3 spots remaining! Drop a 😎 below to snag your spot!!
Day 40/80 complete and I am a sweaty mess 😅😅😅 cardio core kicks my ass every time... the humidity doesn’t help. 😂
Ugh barely got out of bed to work out but I rolled over and picked my happy self up and did the damn thing! 😂💪🏽
Adding HIIT cardio to the beginnings of my upper body days has been the best change I’ve made to my training routine!
Because my upper body days aren’t as strenuous as my lower body days I would always burn a significantly amount less calories.
Because HIIT raises your metabolic rate to the point where you continue to burn calories even after the session ends my heart rate stays elevated throughout my entire lifting session which allows me to burn more calories than I was before!
Still not feeling 100%, but vacation is in 3 weeks so it’s time to tighten back up on my nutrition...sick or not!
- not sure how this even happened considering I only consumed roughly 600 calories today (which is crazy!) and then had a solid day of swimming and walking with my kids, which involves a lot of carrying my kids 😜 and my Apple Watch rings were already closed when I hopped on the bike, where normally that is WHY I am hopping on the bike... I just threw on a podcast and away I went for an hour. Halfway through my watch went off telling me I had reached my 30m goal and I thought hey, fuck it - I’m not tired, the podcast isn’t over, let’s crank up the resistance and go another 30 min! I also alternate sets of 4 min where every second set I hold a 12lb medicine ball above my head to activate my triceps, shoulders, and my back. If this isn’t a major #ketogain
for a fat girl I just don’t know what is... hell, two months ago I was still shit-talking about keto’s sustainability issues and now I have to sit here and say.. I drank some bulletproof coffee, had a small bowl of strawberries, and ate a tacoless salad - had a super active day, plus did my longest cycle so far... no exogenous ketones, could have eaten tons of food since I have a full fridge - yet I still feel like bouncing off the walls yet and no blood sugar crash or feeling starved - WHAT IS THIS WITCHCRAFT? I do feel SLIGHTLY hungry after this workout tho (I did some quick resistance training afterwards too) so I’ll be eating again before bed (veggies with whipped herb/garlic cream cheese!) and trust me it is not something I am feeling restricted over. If I wanted a banana or even a burger, I literally have those ready to rock right now IN MY HOUSE, and yet I feel better about, and actually CRAVE ketogenic foods. But tonight, thankfully, a carbonated water with some healthy veggies is all my body wants. Sugar cravings begone! Just currently trying to accept the fact that I now have to eat my old words about how terrible keto is 🤭 fuck. I hate admitting I was wrong! -

Small produce haul I picked up after the gym.
These are some of my typical carb sources I eat on a low carb diet. Broccoli is my staple veggie, but I always have it on hand.
The grapes are a bit high in sugar, so I have them either before or directly after my workouts.
Last workout as a 26 year old woman. 26 has been a great age. I've learned so much, and the way God has me set up 27 is only going to be better! 🙌🏾
So stinkin’ sweaty. Today I did @becomingjai
‘s Cardio Kickboxing video on YouTube and it’s amazing! I felt like such a badass punching into nothingness. It was good to get some aggression out, too. I’ve always thought kickboxing would be fun, but I’ve been too nervous and broke to go to a gym that offers it. This will be a good start for me. I did it once and a half through for 21 minutes of cardio. ————————————————
No picture of lunch today, but lunch was a bit indulgent. Two of my teacher friends and I got together for a home made lunch. I brought a WalMart bagged Caesar salad, my friend made chicken pesto pasta and tomato roasted red pepper soup, and my other friend brought Truly’s. If you drink alcohol, I recommend Truly!! They are 100 calorie cans of spiked flavored seltzer water. It almost tastes like a cocktail which is what I like them so much. Today I was asked to be a bridesmaid!!!! And I said yes!!! I’m so excited to be a part of my dear friend’s wedding. She wants to slim down for her wedding dress, I wanna slim down for my bridesmaids dress!!

Pool day with the twins and my niece!
Day 1 hammer & chisel. 🏋️♀️
I have joint and hip problems and due to some problems I needed to switch up from 22 Min Hard Corp for now. My body requires something a little less impact. You need to learn to listen to your body and work with it and not against it!! 💕
Love yourself! ❤️❤️
Happy Monday, y’all! It’s a new week—are you ready to rock it?
I was so good last week! I had my “treat meal” on Sunday and my nutrition was on point the rest of the week. If you know me, you know that nutrition is the biggest struggle for me. 😩 also lost about 2.5 lbs last week, so I’m feeling good and hoping to maintain this progress. 💪🏼💪🏼
Day 27/80. .
Phase 2: Day 1. .
Did my end of Phase 1 measurements this morning and y’all I’m pretty pumped! Especially since I wasn’t 💯 on the nutrition. Stay tuned for the numbers tomorrow!! 🤗
Switching it up today so definitely felt like a #Day1
workout. New moves, feeling awkward, loops rolling, having to switch to heavier/lighter weights, baby waking from nap, etc., but I did it! .
