Sums the week up. busy stressful week = some emotion eating too!! Still had morning shake but 3 days of eating lots of wrong choices. Still haven’t ruined any of my journey, nor lost that spark as I pick myself up, dust my self off and shine like the biggest star 💫 #itsajourneynotadestination #pushthecomfortzone #dontletanythinggetyoudown #tomorrowanotherday #bedtime
I didn't make it to the gym today due to having overworked a musle in my right thigh the other day. While it sucks, and it hurts to walk a bit, I still got in a decent ab workout at home...just because you can't make it to the gym doesn't mean you can't get in a workout! Happy Friday!

Afternoon snack today. 
Trying to find protein bars I like is hard, but I seem to really enjoy @rxbar . These bars have limited ingredients and, to avoid mystery, they even list their ingredients on the front of their wrappers. Truly "No B.S."

#throwbackthursday to 2015 when I lost #80pounds using various #HIIT workouts #lowcarb #cleaneating #shakeology #perseverance and #consistency
And
I won over $4000 between #beachbody #dietbet and #healthywage. It was a good year. 
But, good or bad we #dontliveinthepast and we have to turn our sights to the future so I started working on my vision board for 2019. I was searching images when thought, "Hey, why don't I just use myself as my own inspiration? I don't need models, I just need me." #revelation

I realized that I'm lucky to be able to do that. To come from a place that others might see as failure, but I see as a learning experience and growth. That I know what to do (and what NOT to do) how to do it, and that I CAN do it...because I've done it before. 
I'm excited to do this again, even better this time...and for the last time. #watchme

Happy Friday Eve!!! Morning workout today focused on chest, back, and arms. Started out with 5 minutes of rowing, and then jumped in to my workout. Honestly, I'm feeling better after these morning workouts instead of going in the afternoon. When do you find is the best time for YOU to workout?

Home workout bc I didn't feel like driving to the gym 3 rounds 60 jump ropes 5 deadlifts 5 cleans 5 push press 5 kettlebell swings I used a five gallon water jug. This got me out of breath but I'm trying. There's always going to be negative people hating on you but it doesn't matter bc there opinion doesn't mean shit who's opinion that matters is your own. Love yourself and don't let nobody make you feel less  #yougotthis #workout #homewokrout #imtrying #ilovemyself #itsajourneynotadestination #loveyourself #motivation #whocares

**Real Talk**
Today was one of those days where I just didn't feel like getting up and going to train. I went to sleep really late so I was still tired, didn't eat supper so I wasn't feeling very energized and my hamstrings are still extremely sore from Monday's leg session, so I just didn't feel like having to push through another leg session today. Normally I would have slept in, but because today would possibly be my last intense training session for the rest of the weekend, I decided to go anyway. There's no "suddenly I felt amazing" ending to this story. It was definitely one of the least productive leg sessions I've had in a while, and in hindsight, I probably should have just slept in. My point is that sometimes these things happen. Rest is important and when our bodies are crying out for a break, we need to listen. There will always be another opportunity to make up for a missed session, but we only have one body and we need to take care of it. Listen  to the whispers from your body before they turn into screams🌸

I was reminded today (like literally by a friend 🤣) that today is the 13th anniversary of John Lawson’s brain surgery at 17-months old. On 12-12-05 we were at Children’s 🎈 for a 10-hour surgery to disconnect the 2 sides of his brain. It has been quite a journey. And today 12-12-18 we are here again as part of our journey. We must remember that there is no perfect fix, only things to be learned along the way. We have learned that the little one from this picture has persevered through so much and for the most part has suffered well - and with a lot of support & love from friends and family. ❤️ He has taught me more than I have taught him. And so we march on! Also, he wants a “hospital bed with wheels” for Christmas 🎄 🙈🤷🏻‍♀️ “Not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character produces hope. Now this hope does not disappoint us, because God’s Love has been poured out into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:3-5 #hemiversary #13yearanniversary #persevere #hope #resilience #itsajourneynotadestination

Haven’t gone grocery shopping yet (altho there’s chicken in the freezer) so decided to stop my 14hr IF with a pack of Isalean Pro + 1 banana. Mmmmm.......

I’m in love with ME! I’m not good with words, but wow! I’m just so proud of myself and the things I’ve been able to accomplish this year!! I have a new mindset, and no way is everyday easy, but I’ve learned that it’s ok...I’ve been doing this for 8 months now and I look back at old photos and videos and I’m still in shock at how much my body has changed. But most importantly my mental health has improved. Most of you know my oldest son is an addict and in September he went to a facility as an inpatient, then partial inpatient and finally outpatient therapy. He graduated from the program yesterday and I’m so proud of him!! Looking back we as a family made this commitment for three months. At times feeling completely hopeless and lost. Praise God here we are today, finishing something we started!! It was rough but it’s just the beginning of a new adventure in his recovery!!! Similar journeys, both that require commitment, falling down and picking yourself up again, taking one day at time!! NOTHING CHANGES IF NOTHING CHANGES❤️ #goals #proudmama #mysonismyhero #odaat #commitment #itsajourneynotadestination #recovery #family #cantstopwontstop #healthylifestyle #addictionrecovery

Made it to the gym this morning and got in a solid leg workout. My legs will kill tomorrow, but I'm a-okay with that! Looking forward to tomorrow's chest/back/arm workout!

Let's talk about accountability. Monday and Tuesday of this week I did NOT go to the gym. I sat at home, with my my dog, and applied for jobs and worked on the computer. I did not bat an eyelash at the fact that I didn't go to the gym. However, I knew that I was slacking and I made it a point to set my alarm early, set my clothes out, and make it a point for me to go. 
Full disclosure, the winter, and the holiday, can be difficult for an individual to be motivated, especially one who is trying to get into the swing of things. Slip ups will happen often, days will be skipped, and I'll do things that will set me a few steps back. The key is to keep pushing forward and to not let the slip-ups get me down!

Saluting my adult self this evening 🥂( Just the one glass! 🙈 )
Tonight, it was my children’s nativity and I shared a church bench with my ex husband and his girlfriend. There’s been a lot of water under the bridge over the last three years... possibly the understatement of the decade! 
But at the end of the day... who really matters? Not him, not her, not me. Only them.

📱 How Technology & Phone Apps Can Help You on Your Journey
-
📊 Calorie Tracking Apps:
-
MyFitnessPal (Free)
LoseIt! (Free)
FatSecret (Free)
Yazio (Free)
-
▪️ MyFitnessPal is a calorie counter app. This is the only one I have used out of these 4 but different people like different things so I put down more than one option. This is one of the best calorie counter apps out there. The only thing to be careful of is when you are setting it up it asks you how many pounds you want to lose per week. Obviously, everyone wants to lose as fast as possible so you put two pounds a week and it sets your calories extremely low. Don't do that. That's not sustainable and you will give up because you are starving all the time. I would rather you tell the app you don't want to lose weight, you want to remain the same and just use it as a way to track your calories. Use the calorie deficit calculator I recommend and then just enter your calories in the app. Also, I wouldn't add exercise in there - or if you do - don't eat those calories back. Message me with any questions (works on android and ios).
-
▪️ LoseIt, FatSecret & Yazio - I have not personally used these apps but I know people who prefer them so to each their own. I would assume that I would make similar recommendations as I did with MyFitnessPal (I think all 3 work on android and ios).
-
🍔 Nutrition App:
-
Fooducate (Free)
-
▪️ Fooducate is awesome for learning and educating yourself on your food choices. Just click on food finder, scan the barcode of the product you want to know about and it grades it for you and tells you why. Press the tabs along the top to find out explanations, nutrition, and healthier alternatives (works on android and ios).

💰 Charity Apps:
-
CharityMiles (Free)
WalkForADog (Free)

Very proud of myself. We had a Family Football screening night last night, and I didn't eat any of this. Although I really did want to. It was past 8pm and I stuck to my IF. Plus I only have 4 days left in my #DM6WeekChallenge 🤣🤣

Life is a race, and what matters most isn't when a person crosses the finish line, but how strong they've grown along the way.⠀
.⠀
Watching these amazing women go through their transformations reminds me that everyone has their own pace. ⠀
.⠀
I’ll get to where I’m supposed to be when it’s time and I’ll be stronger than when I started not just physically but mentally too, because of these amazing women.⠀

It takes commitment, discipline and hard work. There is nothing easy about fighting temptation to binge or schedule in time for self with an already packed schedule or getting off track more times than you can count.
.
You know what else isn't easy? Being tired all the time, feeling heavy both physically and emotionally or just not caring about anything. When you are not taking care of yourself, it not only takes a toll on your body, but also your mental state. How do I know this? Because I've put my health and my well being on the back burner too many times. It never produces anything positive.
.
Life is always going to have ups and downs. Life will always throw you a curve ball when you least expect it. It's your choice how you respond to life. You can use all life's challenges as an excuse or you can face those challenges with courage and use those challenges to strengthen you and build your character.
.
Chose your hard friends. I've chose mine, and this time, it's producing positive results.

Often times, people want to lose weight right? But really I think many just want to lose inflammation in their body. You see there is only a 10-15 lb difference in my body now, but I am down several inches and a pant size since the beginning of my journey. I describe it to people as being “puffy”. I just felt bloated, puffy and jiggly in areas. Most of it was related to my poor diet, many nights out in college and not taking care of what I was putting into my body.  Inflammation that lingers can be a result of sugar, alcohol, cooking in vegetable oil, eating refined carbs, processed foods and meats and many other things. Inflammation can be bad and can lead to other issues as well. No judgment because I’ve been there. My face was a little more cheeky and now it’s a little more slim.🤷🏼‍♀️Outside appearance doesn’t even come close to how much better I feel on the inside. The changes came when I addressed my gut. Oh and I think my face likes #Joyome too.😉🙌🏽

Debunking the Myths: Day 2

Another common response I get when  talking to people about joining my wellness groups is that they are just a "quick fix" or a "temporary solution." Cleanses are quick fixes. Diets are temporary solutions. I've tried both. My groups are neither. (Although everyone loves a good cleanse now and then, am I right?!) My groups are about cultivating a lifestyle. Changing the way we look at food and what it does to and for our bodies. Learning to portion, and filling ourselves up with REAL food. Learning tricks that make meal prep quick and easy to fit into your busy life, not a chore that takes up all your time. Sharing recipes and lifehacks with women on a journey similar to yours. You won't see a change overnight. But overtime, you will start to develop lasting habits. Habits that will stick with you and improve your health from the inside out.

If you're looking for more than a quick fix, or temporary solution, I'd love to chat! DM me or drop your favorite food emoji below. 🍍🍣 #noquickfix #theresnomagicpill #itsajourneynotadestination #eatrealfood #eatyourveggies #foodie #cleaneating #homecooking #mealprep #fieldroast

Liquid gold and a little bit of grit.
.
Hopped out of bed today feeling apprehensive about today’s workout. Totally new moves, new program, more jumping than I’m used to, but I pressed play anyways. And BOOM, in just 30 minutes I completed my second workout off the hybrid calendar to prepare for the launch of transform 20 in January!
.
It doesn’t get easier, you just get stronger. All you need is the courage to begin✨
.
Who’s ready to join me and step into the new year feeling some kind of fierce? I’m only and ALWAYS a message away😘

Appreciate where you are but don’t linger and not continue pushing forward.  Just remember that the best project you will ever work on is you!  In some way, shape, or form, you can always be working on a better version of you.♥️

Finished my credits for the month at HQ #dailymusclelighthouse so decided to get a 1on1 with BFF turned coach @sharon_alaina at her house. JayZ the Beagle was over it by the time I was done. .

**Check out my stories for a side view and images from before the drama**
Skin transformation for #transformationtuesday. It's taken me forever to post this because this was probably one of the worst phases I've ever gone through and I still cringe when I look at these pictures😖😖. I've never had issues with my skin until late last year when a forced change in my face wash(the one I was using was discontinued) triggered a really bad series of break-outs and pigmentation. Due to having extremely sensitive skin, the more I tried to remedy it myself, the worse it got. To make matters worse, I HATE wearing make-up (my definition of a "face beat" is a few coats of mascara and some lipstick when I feel like being extra fancy🤣😏) so the fact that I couldn't cover it up had me STRESSED, which meant EVEN more breakouts🤦🏽‍♀️. My confidence took a serious knock. I don't think I've ever been as self-conscious as I was at this point. Eventually I started going for regular treatments @life_med_aesthetics in May this year and that, combined with the recommended products and strict home routine has given me PHENOMENAL results. My skin is in an even better condition than it was before all of the drama and it continues to improve! I've since come to realise that proper skin care is really not an expense, but a real investment. Make the sacrifice. Your older self will thank you one day.

Late night workouts seem to be my thing right now 😅 ...but at least I’m gettin them done!
.
On another note, one thing I’ve definitely noticed lately is that my shoulders are finally startin to grow (sorta hehe). I’ve been working out consistently now for a long time and only recently have I seen progress in my shoulders and back... so if you’re strugglin to see results, don’t quit. Some things just take more time. I promise you that consistency and dedication will help you reach your goals🤗💪🏼.

Tonight is hard, my beautiful angel, life is just moving along, but it doesn’t physically move along with you by my side, I know all the things lately come from you and god above, I know that you made me so strong for the days to come, I know god has put his peace in my heart, to be brave, to remember why I’ve started @projectemma4 in your honor, lord knows the tears I cry can’t bring you back, lord knows I’ve tried. You visited me in my dream, and you looked like you do now, so beautifully peaceful, you were happy, with the prettiest hat on your tiny head, you kissed grandma, grandma Mikey wouldn’t let you go, and it seemed like your dad and I held you and admired and loved you for such a long time. You were alive, right with us, and then I woke up... I woke up to face the cold reality of living without you. I love you sweet Emma Lynn, and there’s not a day I go by that I don’t miss you. #6monthsago #childlossawareness #heavencouldntwaitforyou👼 #yourmommysworld #daddylittlegirl #wemissyou #whywefoundedprojectemma4 #godsplan #inpaincomesstrength #onedayatatime #incompetentcervixpregnancy #20weekspreterm #hopeintheheartsofothers #healingafterloss #itsajourneynotadestination #youllnevergetoverit

Good morning everyone and happy Monday!!! What’s on deck this week for everyone?  I have one more final to take on Thursday and then I am DONE with this degree; that’s my big thing for the week!! I’m also FINALLY feeling better so I’m going to be working on refocusing my nutrition and pushing hard in all of my workouts this week 💪🏻 Time to get back to my routine and be consistent again! 👯‍♀️🙌🏻 It’s not about how little you eat or maxing out every single workout - this journey is all about consistency.....the things you do habitually every day add up over time and are what get you to your goals!

So I’m starting my morning with a chocolate shake that’s filled with all of the vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants, and protein my body needs to get back on track - and it’s SO SO YUMMY!  It feels like a cheat meal....but it’s not 🤫 Hope everyone starts their week off right with a great Monday! 
What’s on your calendar for the week?

I’m often in awe of God’s beautiful creations. Even in the winter time when it seems to be a time where everything is dead, and not so beautiful. I went on a walk yesterday and was amazed by the perfect timing of the alignment of the sun shining on all the plants, dead and alive. This sunlight enhanced the beauty of everything around me.
▫️▪️▫️▪️▫️▪️▫️▪️▫️▪️
This got me thinking, even through challenges and times that things might not be as we want them to be, it can still be an awesome experience. Whether it is weight loss, a job, financial struggles, etc. God uses these winter times in our lives to teach us the most. ▫️▪️▫️▪️▫️▪️▫️▪️▫️▪️
In this season, God is teaching me to be patient and see the beauty of the situations I am in currently. Not to envy the past or long for a future, just to be present right now and to soak in all the learning that is going on.

I was talking to a new friend last week who said to me:
“You won’t always be motivated to stay on track but if you stay disciplined you won’t need it”.....
I have been thinking about this a lot over the last few days vowing to finish 2018 strong & to remember how far I come this year
•
In that spirit....after a 9 hour sleep last night I went to the @foundryfit this morning to try “Box”. I’m so pleased I did Zane is a great instructor, knows his shit and made it fun! My stamina has a taken a little nose dive after not training for nearly two weeks but that’s ok
•
I really enjoyed the pad work and like I said Zane was great at ensuring our technique was on point! I will never give up on this health & fitness journey and I will be disciplined going into the last few weeks of the year to finish it strong....Just call me Nic Balboa 🥊 •

A personal trainer and coach once told me to always have a goal. She said working towards a goal was the best way to keep moving forward. It doesn’t always have to be a huge goal, but always have something to work towards. 
I’m spending the rainy day signing up for new things, setting new goals, and refining my intentions. It’s time to keep moving forward. #gotgoals #goaldigger #alwaysmovingforward #nevergoingback #intentions #intentionalliving #livingmybestlife #itsajourneynotadestination

I couldn’t WAIT to start sampling some of the recipes from the nutrition guide that comes with the program we’re launching in January (check out my stories for what all comes with this program)- and man oh man am I glad I didn’t!!! Lunch was a simple sweet potato hash with some ham and an egg - WOW - it was amazing...who said eating healthy has to be boring or take a ton of time to cook?! This was super easy and SO YUMMY - just ask Ben 🤤😉

Hope folks are staying warm on this chilly, chilly Saturday. ⛄
I'm going to be honest, I've slacked this week when it comes to getting to the gym. This week has been stressful, exhausting, and filled with self-doubt. HOWEVER, I made it today and got in a solid leg workout and for this, I feel good and am proud. Off to run errands, spend time with Chris, Britt, and my pup, and stay warm! 
Did you make it to the gym today? .

My meals for the past 3 days. I think I'm doing better with regards to the amount I'm eating at each meal.
.
Today was a big #CheatDay though. On a rare occasion #TheHubster agreed to go into KL and took me for dinner at our favourite Middle Eastern restaurant. I just had to have my fave foods. I skipped the bread though 😁😁😁

My buddy the water bottle is here to remind you to hydrate. hydRATE. HYDRATE!!! As the days get colder, and we turn the heat up in our houses, cars, etc, it is important to thinking about our skin and bodies. I have particularly dry skin as a result of my keratosis pilaris-- an over-production of keratin in my body--and it leaves my body scaley, flakey, and, some days, cracked. In order to help keep it together, literally, I have to drink more water than I normally would! Water is good for our skin, to help keep our systems running, and even helps to prevent headaches, cramps and sprains! Happy Friday .

Everyone else has a Black Friday sale so I figured... why not me!! The holiday season is a time to take care of each other, but it’s JUST as important to take care of yourself. ⁣How can you give to others if you’re empty?
⁣
Sooooo, I’m running a Black Friday special. All my bootcamp packages are $20 off NOW through the end of the month! ⁣
⁣
What do you get?
A complete exercise plan to do from home (hello time saver), 30 superfood meal shakes and a simple meal plan (that teaches you to get results without feeling deprived).
We’ll have a weekly virtual call and access to my private online bootcamp full of badass babes.
⁣
Want in? Shoot me a message and let’s do it!

HOLY CRAP you guys! It’s official. I am 50lbs down ⬇️ I started changing my lifestyle in September of last year and this is what happened when I didn’t give up on myself. This takes a lot of soul searching, and I am a better me on the inside. I’m not going to lie, it’s HARD. And I don’t mean physically, this is and will always be a mind/body game of connecting the dots. But THIS is what I have control over and that is me and my thoughts and actions. When I do better for me, then the rest falls into place. Such an amazing feeling and I’m not done yet. 💪🏻✨🤯☺️ I am so proud of myself. 🙌🏻 #80dayobsession #itsajourneynotadestination #beachbody #beforeandafter #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation
