Chapter 2/Day 22: work, eat, gym and sleep....a typical Friday for this girl 🤷♀️ Do I need to get a life? Nope, I've got one I love thanks. K bye 🙋♀️
Got off work today, and was just spent! I was gunna take Sunday as my rest day.. but decided to take today off instead, so I get off at 5.. laid down for a nap. And when I woke up I was feeling so guilty and all I wanted to do was go to the gym but it was already 9:50 at that point 😬😬 Iv just been in such a routine these last 9 days.
Get home, cook for my hubb
7pm- gym for at least hour
Shower, bed. Repeat...
Has anyone ever had a revision? Did it help? I’m thinking about asking my doctor’s for one. But I want to find people who have had it... not the people who tell me I shouldn’t do it. Because truly no one knows what I am going through or how I feel but me. I am not happy with where I am in my journey. I’ve lost the weight but I’m sick of being stalled. It’s been 18 months since surgery and I’m not where I thought I would be. Seeing so many people who started this journey the same day as me and knowing they are at their goal weight makes me angry that I’m not there with them. I’m super happy for everyone but I’m pissed at myself. Because I know I could have and should have done better. My friends and family tell me it’s just my loose skin that’s got me feeling like this. But no!!! Damn it, I’m still obese. I’m 175 pounds. I’m disappointed in myself. It’s not just skin. It’s the fact I’m still overweight at 5’4 and feel my sleep apnea coming back. Yes, I’m typing this and crying at the same time. I’m just tired of being overweight.

Wrinkles, gray hairs, I embrace it all because who cares!
The next time you look into the mirror and start to criticize yourself about your "flaws," remember just how amazing you are. Be kind to yourself, remember who you are, what you've been through, and who loves you just the way you are. 🥰
for my physical AND mental health. Comparing my HEART RATE between July 20, 2018 before I started losing weight, and yesterday February 19, 2019. First of all, note the moment on 6/20 when my heart rate spiked all the way up to 158bpm. We were in Colorado (driving cross country to move to CA from MA!) and I had just woken up from a nap. I got out of the car to use the bathroom and when I came back, I started to feel like I couldn’t breathe. Then my heart started racing. I felt like I was about to pass out and I was struggling to catch my breath. I started screaming for Jack to come back to the car and we ended up driving to an urgent care outside of Denver. I kept trying to tell myself—it’s just a panic attack, nothing is wrong. I took my usual stuff for panic, did deep breathing, and took some tums in case it was reflux-related. The doctor was extremely kind but all she could figure was that I was indeed just having an anxiety attack, possibly bc of breathing troubles because of the altitude change. It was a terrifying experience tho. Even though it was “just” a panic attack, it’s clear that my heart was NOT healthy. And I’ve since learned (much to my horror) that panic attacks ARE dangerous for your heart health, and increase your risk of CVD and complications re: high blood pressure. My RHR was between 81-85, and most of the day my HR hovered around 100. Driving in a car, sitting still for 6 hours a day. I was constantly having heart palpitations too. I had high blood pressure as well, and with the panic attacks it was periodically shooting up even higher. And that’s not even considering how untreated sleep apnea was affecting it...I’ve never gotten my heart checked out intensively but I’d venture to guess inside its wee chambers, it was NOT a happy fellow. Fast forward to now—my blood pressure is fine, 118/70 last time I went to the sleep doc, (used to be around 135/90 😰) and my RHR is down to 65! I tend to stay around 70s-80s when I’m just sitting still, and walking around it just goes up to low 100s. I feel so much better, both in my heart & my anxiety. It was not a fun life. Thank god for plants! And yoga! And valerian!
Transformations start from the inside. I never thought 3 years ago I’d be the loud, crazy and confident girl I am today! The girl who grabs life by the horns and makes shit happen! Internal transformation is probably my favorite part when I start working with my amazing clients💜, I want them to work not just on their bodies but their heart and souls. It all ties together. .
I challenge my girls to get down to the nitty gritty, we find out who, what, when, where and why things bother them. Then we hit it full force, no holding back. Life’s too short to let the dead weight we carry around on the inside bring us down! .
Who else has transformed from the inside out?!

Everyday is a new opportunity, make the most out of it. Use what you have and do what you can.
When putting a plate together it is all about balance 2️⃣5️⃣=%Lean Meat🐟🍗 2️⃣5️⃣%=High Fiber Carbs 5️⃣0️⃣%=Veggies👍.
Always More Plants🌿 VS. Meats🍖🍗‼️
Easy was the main goal tonight since i still feel like crap. Broccoli & cheese with leftover roasted Turkey Breast. Topped it off with @kerrygoldusa
I like buying turkey breast roasts and roasting them on the weekends instead of buying deli meat Turkey. It's more affordable and tastes 100% better.
Reaching for the weekend like 🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️!!! Just wrapped up today’s workout and can’t believe we only have 3 days left! I’m excited to be going back to some weights but also excited to measure all my progress from this program! Who else is going back to a strength based program next?!
HOW TO BURN FAT AND LOSE WEIGHT
The thing about fat loss is that most people know what they ‘should do’ and what is ‘bad’.
Most of you know what is healthy, unhealthy, right and wrong.
Most of you want me to tell you how to lose fat the FASTEST way possible on the path of least resistance.
If that’s what you want stop reading now and go buy some fit tea or crap body wraps. (Then come talk to me when you realize they don’t work)
If you want to burn body fat and lose weight it really is much easier than you think, the problem is you don’t want to be patient.
Burning body fat and losing weight is a LIFESTYLE. Say it with me now, BURNING BODY FAT AND LOSING WEIGHT IS A LIFESTYLE.
It is making the positive changes to your mindset, nutrition, exercise, sleep, environment, hydration, habits and behaviors. When we get these working consistently thats when you will be one happy camper, losing body fat, and looking in mirror telling yourself you are one sexy beast!
You have to be ready to commit to the above things. if not, you are as good as dead.
Hope this helps. Love you big time♥️

You just don’t get it. You are already fit!! • Sustainable for life!! That’s what I share because that’s what I found! Simple because life is already crazy enough why add 2 hours at the gym and a list of foods you can’t eat!! I get it!!!! I was 90+lbs heavier when I started!
I get it, committing to something isn’t easy. I told myself time and time again I was going to get my SHIT together constantly but never ACTUALLY did.
I’d workout at the gym and then the weekend were a free-for-all to binge.
Then I’d start again Monday. It Was A struggle!
You will forever be on the Yo-You cycle if you don’t find something Simple and yet sustainable.
The girl on the left. Broken. Ashamed. Embarrassed. Depressed. Struggling hard core spiritually and mentally!
The girl on the right. Constantly HEALING. Working everyday to be better than the day before. Showing up everyday and putting herself first.
I wouldn’t say this is a New me. This is Me that is BETTER but was always there.
It’s hard. I get it. You don’t have to do it alone.
That’s what our amazing groups are for.
20 minutes a day. 6 days a week. No list of foods you have to NOT eat. It’s simple. Simple is all it takes.

I wish I was making this post saying I’ve been MIA because I’ve been focusing on myself rather than focusing on things that don’t better me. Unfortunately my BED and depression didn’t allow that to happen. .
The last two days I ate terrible.. not even a little terrible. A whole lot of terrible. .
I found myself in this depressive state.. mostly knowing it was because I hadn’t seen change on the scale. I KNOW the gains are there, I KNOW you guys always tell me to be easier on myself. I KNOW it’s just my body dysmorphia and decades of beating myself down.. I’m trying to get better. I’m trying. .
When I get this way it’s almost crippling. Im sure some of you can related. It’s like I’m not even myself and I become this person who just gives up and would rather hate myself. .
I remember when I was 6 or so and I tried out karate for the first time. I gave up after receiving my yellow belt. I remember my grandpa telling my grandma that he didn’t want me to quit.. because if I start quitting things now I may decide throughout my life it’s just easier to give up instead of pushing through to the end. No matter how hard it is.
He was right. .
This DID in fact affect me.. mostly his words, but in the end it made me think my entire life that I was a FAILURE when I couldn’t push through to the end. I’m sure a lot more crazy things in my life lead me to believe that I’ll never be good enough. That I’ll NEVER beat BED and my depression. .
WELL. I’m here to say after two days of bingeing and my MIND telling me to just delete this Instagram and give up... that I’m here to say proudly... .
I WILL NEVER GIVE UP! I’M NEVER BACKING DOWN FROM WHAT WILL MAKE ME A BETTER HUMAN BEING, MOM, DAUGHTER, SISTER, SELF! .
I’m not perfect, I’ve been on this journey for for almost 2 years now. This journey of self love and acceptance. I know I’m more than my MIND believes me to be. I’ve finished so many things in my life even when I believe I’ve done nothing. HELL I WENT TO MEDICAL SCHOOL AND GRADUATED ALL WHILE BEING A MOM. I’m much stronger than I believe. I’m ready to start loving myself more. #bingeeatingrecovery
Bun-less provolone cheeseburger! 😋😋
This is going to be the hardest social media post I've ever done. This is me September of 2018. I was the heaviest and unhealthiest I've ever been weighing in at 255 lbs. I was miserable.
I wanted so much to be the fit girl again. The fit girl I used to be. But I kept beating myself up to the point I was so convinced I was worthless, that I would fail anyway, & I had too much weight to lose so why bother.
What. The. Hell. 😱 When I used to be a fitness coach, I would be horrified when clients told me this. Yet there I was, doing exactly what I preached not to do.
The bigger I got the more depressed I became and the more depressed I became the bigger I got. It was a vicious cycle.
But I wasn't going to find happiness again until I made some changes. I had to change my thought process entirely. I had to find a way to motivate myself. I stumbled across a youtuber @missremiashten
who talked about her struggles and it was what I needed. Her honesty was my inspiration.
Now, here I am 5 months later, working to change. These are my befores. You better believe me when I say I'll have after pictures again 💖
Never give up, start taking to yourself the way you deserve, and find the happiness in your life again!

I had a little workout buddy this morning 🥰
He was such a good little motivator! In the middle of doing my ab work, he jumped off the couch and cheered,"Good job Mama! I love you!" 😍
And then he proceeded to "help" me with my last move 😳 .
✔Check out the clip in my stories to see what he did 🙉 🤣 .
Regardless, I LOVED that he did that because not gonna lie, I was getting pretty fatigued and knowing he was cheering and watching me kept me going strong 💪#settinganexample
