Sun is shining, a new day is starting and I feel good.
Those are a few things I focused on during this morning's run. Even if I have things to worry about, these things remain true.
Have a great Wednesday!
I was asked some tips on how I prepare my day! Jesus and jiggle juice! Can’t get any better then that!! What is this jiggle juice you might ask?? Arbonne fizz-B6 and B12 vitamins and a plant based derived caffeine
Arbonne digestive plus- pre and probiotics with 11 digestive enzymes that break down food
ACV- breaks down fat!!! Yumm
#weightgain#thebaneofmyexistence As long as I can remember, I’ve been fat. I was a fat kid, clumsy and always falling over and cutting my knees open. I was skinny for a while between 11 and 13, but then I got hit by a car when I turned 14 and then started to pack on the pounds when I was bed-ridden for quite some time and then couldn’t function properly due to my broken leg, pelvis and arm not healing correctly. I was lethargic and lazy all through my Uni days and then from 1999 until 2017, I did absolutely nothing (zero exercise and lots of fast food, chocolate and soft drinks). Terrible, I know. Fast forward to 2018 and I’m quite possibly (aside from my severely weak left knee/torn ACL ligament) in the best shape of my life at the age of 45. Only took me half my life, but just goes to show that it’s never too late. There is still some way to go before I reach my ideal weight of 73 kgs but I don’t often weigh myself these days (when I first started my #weightlossjourney a year and a half ago, I weighed myself everyday, sometimes twice a day) and judging by the multiple readings, there’s not much point apart from gaining a rough indication of how you’re doing. The best proof that your improving is your physical fitness - are you out of breath after doing 100 burpees or are you ready to do 10 mins of mountain climbers? Are you still standing upright after running up ten flights of stairs or are you on your hands and knees dry hurling? Whatever your level of fitness, quit weighing yourself and do the best you can with the best you have, and I promise you that you’ll improve little by little as I have. I e accepted that #losingweight is gonna take time, but I’m having fun getting there and making lots of friends along the way. Thanks guys for your encouragement, love and positivity. Without your energy, I would never have thought it possible to make a change so late in my life! #pilates#pilateseveryday#yoga#yogaeveryday#pilateseverydamnday#yogaeverydamnday#healthandfitness#healthylifestyle#sweatisfatcrying
✨Still grinding. Still committed to my goals. 🌠
If there is one piece of advice I could give you, it's to never stop improving. There is always room to grow. Be willing to show up and admit where you can become better. You deserve to emulate your best self.
🏋️♀️The Dumbbell Pullover🏋️♀️
Check out one of our Fitness Warriors during the aerobics and core class. .
The dumbbell pullover primarily works the chest muscles, but several muscles of the back also assist during this exercise. It also works the lats, rhomboids, rear delts and triceps. .
To do the pullover exercise, ensure your arms are straight throughout the exercise. Begin with the dumbbells directly above your chest, inhale as you slowly lower the dumbbells towards the floor making sure they don’t touch the ground. Pause briefly, then exhale and slowly move the dumbbells back to the starting position. .
Our classes provide a full body workout and this is just one of the exercises we often use.

Eggs and ground beef 🥚🥩 I’ve noticed that the egg yolks from German grocery stores are always an orange color and typical American egg yolks are a yellowish color. The darker the yolk, the better the quality... and taste!
I wouldn’t be here, a Registered Dietitian and nutrient enthusiast if it wasn’t for my 20 year old self wanting all the #gainz and #shredz .
Series of events: wanted that lean fit “look”
→ so I got serious about lifting weights
→ then captivated by the effects of nutrition
→ had to learn more
→ B.S Nutrition, Biochemistry → M.S Nutrition, RDN
→ Still learning every day
We all start somewhere, and through a combination of experience and education, we end up HERE. It’s really is a beautiful thing.
I’m 100% still captivated by the effects of nutrition, but it has evolved in a more fulfilling path for myself, and hopefully you, who I get to share the power with 🍠🥒🥝🍒🍋🍓🍏🥦
Working out will ALWAYS be a consistent part of my life 🙋🏽♀️ Some days: a brutal leg day, others: play on the rock wall and stretch. Smart workout programming still in effect, but the pressure of constantly needing to improve the physique has been lifted 🥳

Try this mini circuit for your core! Start with ski abs (2 each side), 4 floor jacks, 4 in and out abs, 4 oblique push ups, back to ski abs and repeat for 3 sets. Great ab burner 🔥. #abworkout#healthandfitness#workout

Extra crispy cauliflower gnocchi Sunday brunch plate courtesy of operation clean-out-the-freezer 🙌🏻 I’ve slowly been working my way through the hoarder status stockpile of frozen veggies, bread (I freeze mine because I can’t get through a loaf on my own in a week) and ice cream (as of last Wednesday I had six pints in there 😬) in my freezer, but I’ve been having separation anxiety about using my LAST bag of cauliflower gnocchi. Decided today was the day to say “goodbye and see you in Boise 👋🏻 (where cauliflower gnocchi droughts don’t exist), and served it with my favorite sides 🍳🥑🍃.
#whatsonmyplate : two crispy garlic ghee fried @vitalfarms eggs 🍳 (try dunking the gnocchi in the yolks for a MAGICAL experience 🌟) •• crispy cauli gnocchi (see the tutorial in my story highlights!) •• sautéed spinach w/ parmesan & red pepper •• avocado w/ TJs ‘everything but the bagel’ seasoning 🧂.
Happy Sunday!! ❤️ I’m running some errands this morning, then getting a hair trim before I meet a few friends for bites and bubbles later tonight 🥂. Hope you all have a beautiful day 😘
Sooo it’s been a while since Iv uploaded a little dance vid guys....more to come in the new year I promise 💃🏽💃🏽 ironically enough even though I was in a show the last few weeks I had no time to record stuff 🤦🏽♀️ anyhow enjoy this sassy routine and me messing up a millions times, but hey at least I was loving life 😂❤️ happy Wednesday!!
How to know WHO you should be getting your fitness advice from. .
Look for the story.
You generally want to work with someone who has been where you are and is either on the way or where you want to be.
If you weigh 300 pounds, then hiring Mindy Sue who was a college cheerleader, has her shit together, and only struggled with the “freshman 10”. Mindy Sue isn’t for YOU. (She’s likely a great trainer BUT you won’t be able to relate to her struggles and vice versa)
Check out feedback and testimonials.
Somewhere there are people who either love or hate this person. Make sure they have some people on their side with POSITIVE results. .
Look into WHAT they are selling.
If they are simply selling supplements and you need some serious hand holding. RUN! Supplements will NEVER teach you lifelong habits and in the long run just leave your frustrated and broke.
Look for transparency.
Let’s face it- If everything always seems perfect it’s likely a facade. Look for positivity regardless of the situation. Look for the helpers. Look for the ones that have overcome. Look for a trainer that expresses traits you need in your life.
Look for experience, training, and cert’s.
Y’all anybody can say they are a coach, trainer, wellness advisor. In fact it’s probably the most misused label out there. Check out the credentials. See what they offer. .
RUN FAR AWAY IF they tell you they can CURE your disease or chronic illness. .
