My favorite things to do - eat and shop online.🥦💻
Even if it is eating vegetables and grocery shop (yes grocery shop online is one of my little indulgences🤗).
I used to take the time to cut up vegetables- but then not eat them😱. I used to actually food prep veggies and pack them for work and then would be so hungry on my way home from work but STILL not eat them. They were bland and they were boring. .
Over the last year I have grown from a veggie fake to veggie fan. And I promise, all of you who feel like veggie fakes can be rehabilitated into total veggie fans too. I am eating in a way that is the most freeing I have ever eaten. It allows me freedom and the ability to go anywhere, not stress about the menu, and know exactly how to eat (and eat a lot!) without being tied down to daily calories or points. .
And a little victory for me - it has taught me the value of eating vegetables, eating a lot of them, and how to enjoy them and actually look forward to them – yes, can you believe that?!🥑🥒🌽🥕🥗
My body loves water and vegetables, And so does YOURS. I also love ranch dressing, pizza, and ice cream. And guess what - that’s OK too!🍨🍦🍕
I’d love to share with you what this plan is. It’s amazing and once you learn, it’s totally taylor made to you. Clear your head of counting all those points and calories, and fill it with much more fun thoughts. Instead of what ‘can’ I eat for dinner, ask yourself what do I ‘want’ for dinner. See, much more fun!
Sorry I’ve laid back on posting videos of my workouts lately. I’ve been focused more on the workout itself. Its hard to focus on the documenting process as well as my workout regime at the same time. But I continue to work towards my goals!
Yes, I lost a lot of weight. Many of you guys have noticed throughout time and have left me positive comments, snapped me questions how I did it, etc. So the picture on the left was taken in Miami a year ago where I weighed 216lbs. Yes, 216!! when I saw this picture that same day, it hit me HARD and got super uncomfortable with my body. About 6-8 months later, till this day, I look like the picture in the right. I now weigh 160lbs and am super happy with the way I look. Many people say I should do weights, lift, hit the gym, but honestly I don’t want that. I just want to be happy the way I look, and that is how I look right now! (Except for my eye bags 😩). My secret to losing weight was eating less portioned meals, cutting out carbs completely, and drinking only water. Now since I lost all the weight I wanted to lose, I eat what I want while maintaining my weight by being responsible. If you find it hard to lose weight, so did I. You have to believe in yourself first ☺️
" not all princesses are thin,
They don't wear crown and glass shoes.
Some go out there without prejudice,
Eating what they feel like,
No Castle, no prince,
But very happy..." "No todas las princesas son delgadas,
ni llevan corona y zapatos de cristal.
Algunas van por ahí sin prejuicios,
comiendo lo que les da la gana,
sin castillo, sin príncipe,
pero muy felices..." #behappywithyourbody#loveyourcurves#loveyourtummy#fuckwhatpeoplethinkorsay
Time for SPA...but at home 😅😂 I caught a cold after 2 years being healthy as a horse 🦄 Anyway, I dont feel guilty about not being able to train - for the first time in my life - probably 😅 Recently, I learned that my body has a lot to say to me and I have to listen to it. So I'm not angry or disappointed that my six - hour training has been lost. My body helps me everyday to became a better dancer, I help my body to feel better and good. So, time for relax and nap. How do you treat your body? Your body is talking. Are you listening? #loveyourself#hearandfeel#behappywithyourbody

“Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not cliches but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.” - Phillip Sweet
I adore this quote because any workout is better than no workout at all! It depends on the amount of time i have each morning.... i will get up decide how much time i have and then decide on the workout. For instance tomorrow i only have 40minutes therefore i will do a very high intense workout like a Crossfit workout. -300 Skips
-30 KB Swings
-30 Sit ups
-3 Minutes plank
-20 KB Swings
-20 Sit ups
-2 Min plank
-10 KB Swings
-10 Sit ups
-1 Min plank —————————
I used to be obsessed with the number on the scale. In high school and college, I would hop on the scale multiple times a day and critique what I saw pop up on the screen.
At one point, I remember restricting my diet, trying to get that number to go down. It went down, but I was miserable. I was unhappy, hungry, and that number? I still wasn't happy.
In my head I had a "magic number". You know, that number that once you saw it on the scale you'd be happy? Except for, even when that number came up, I wasn't happy. I didn't get there in a healthy way. I wanted it to be lower. I wanted it to be different.
So the weight came back on, and I was still unhappy. I did this many times throughout my early adult life. It was harder to lose and maintain the older that I got.
Two years ago when I started this new journey, I told myself I had to do it in a healthy way and that the stupid scale had no place in my life. I have lost around 25lbs. I say "around" because some days the scale is up and some days it is down. Let me explain a couple of things: ▶️I weigh myself daily - not to obsess, but to see if what I did yesterday had a positive or negative impact on my weight. I don't obsess over it or freak out anymore.
▶️I've gained muscle and FEEL good, so I don't worry about that number (as much...I now like to stay in a RANGE of weight, vs. ONE weight)
▶️My relationship with food is MUCH better. I eat healthy, but I still indulge in fun foods.
▶️It took me 2 years to lose 25lbs. And I did that on purpose. I wanted to lose slowly so that I could learn to maintain a lifestyle. I was okay with not shedded it too quickly. It worked for me.
What I want to say is, a number will not define your happiness. Happiness is a feeling you will get by setting goals and crushing them. Happiness is being proud of yourself for getting up and working out. Happiness is eating to be healthy and eating to enjoy foods. Happiness is not a number.
Are you ready to come with me on this journey? Because it for sure isn't over yet. Nope, my journey will last a lifetime.
Shout out to my ladies who don’t like jeans because it triggers them
I hate jeans, I think I literally wear them... 5 times a year. Tops
I don’t feel comfortable with the way they hug my body, or the tightness, the constriction, the list goes on (my god does it)
But that’s okay- cause no one ever said you have to wear them!
The clothes you wear should represent who you are
If you want to be comfortable in sweats and a sweater, be
If you want to be in short shorts and a tank top, be
If you want to be in jeans and a Tshirt, girl you go be
But remember it’s also okay to push yourself out of your comfort zone- but only if you WANT to hehe
Isn’t that the beautiful thing of life? We can just do whatever we want really 🙆🏻♀️☀️
Don’t you agree?! 😊
