You know what really holds us back from learning self love and self growth? Caring about what others think of us. We often feel as though we have to be a certain size or weight in order to be deemed “attractive” or to be considered “fit”. We hold ourselves back from reaching our goals because we worry about what someone might say about them. Why does anyone else’s opinion of the way you look or the things you do have so much of an effect on how you feel in YOUR OWN BODY? How will we ever learn to to love and appreciate ourselves if were always worried about what others think of us? Learning to turn off that voice in your head that’s saying “but what if they think you’re not good enough?”, or “what if they laugh at me?”, isn’t easy. Trust me, I’m still learning this. But the day that I finally decided that I didn’t give a shit what anyone has to say about me, my life, or my choices, is she the day that I learned to love myself for who I am and finally started appreciating my body and all that it is capable of. It was the day that I finally decided that my goals would never be reached if I continued to seek the approval of others. The only approval you need is your own. Remember that. 💕
Ohhh she a snack, snack! Okay... another one cause in all honesty, I felt cute AF in this fit. 🤷🏻♀️ I went back to 2013 with these mirror pics yo! These pants are saying hellluuurrrr, wassguuddd, wassspoppppin!

Got up early and got my workout in! 💪🏼 did a full upper body workout since I skipped the past 3 days. Kinda starting to feel a little more normal and also got some sleep finally last night! 😬 Let’s hope it happens tonight too! Looking forward to the weekend for sure! Let’s do Friday🙂 #thursday#upperbodyworkout#fitness
I've never been one to look forward to a workout! But the deeper I dive into fitness, the more I find myself wanting to crush a killer sparkle session! I love how I feel at the end, there is this awesome sense of accomplishment, that I don't find anywhere else in my life! Finding that I pushed myself harder than I thought I could! Hitting intense cardio moves and crushing them! It just makes me feel amazing!!
You just gotta dig deep! That internal beast is looking for an outlet! Let her roar!
I have not deadlifted in a hot minute, but gave it a go tonight and pleasantly surprised myself. 205 X3 and 215 X 1 after 4 working sets. 😜 sometimes progression takes regression... and ugly ass lifting faces. 😂
I love feeling good about myself. I love seeing other girls compliment each other. I love it when people are nice for no reason. I love seeing other people be helpful. I love seeing communities come together. .
There are so many wonderful and beautiful things in the world. Don’t waste the time you have on negativity and hate. 👐🏽 #costszerodollarstobeaniceperson
Happy Friday Eve!
S/o to @keely.woods32 for inviting me to and instructing a trampoline aerobics class today 🔥I had a blast! I also attempted to do leg day and some abs after this class 🆘 It was HARD! I powered through and my whole body will definitely be sore tomorrow 👍🏽 I hope everyone has a great weekend 💛
Back day is the best day!
I used to hate training back until I realized how many different exercises and exercise variations there were for back muscles. Having a new routine is exciting and I love working out when I’ve planned something different than my regular compound movements. So here’s a normal back workout that I actually never got around to doing. I love barbell rows, enough to do them every back day ♥️
2️⃣alternating single arm dumbbell row
3️⃣single cable row seated
What can I say, I like to be fashionably late......#belatedhumpday 😋😏😅
On a serious note though, motivation has been on the low end lately. Just not feeling it, I think it has to to do with work. And it's ironic because I used to think people were full of crap when they said they were too tired for the gym physically and mentally after or before work. I was like it can't be thattttttt bad. LOL. Well I don't speak for everyone but dangggg I'm mentally exhausted. When I come home I just wanna lay on my bed and watch Netflix. Anyone feel me? Buttttt this is where discipline comes in and you gotta kick it in gear. I just needed a second to adjust😅 gotta find a routine that works for me and stick with it💪Point is, don't judge people bec you never truly know. AND it's okay to fall in a rut here and there, just don't stay there✊
