Wow wow wow! I never thought I would love to run as much as I do right now!
I am feeling stronger everyday! I pushed myself as far as i could then went for a swim with the family!
What a fantastic feeling! And it all started with 30 minute workouts in my living room!!! I am so thankful I decided to take the leap and start my first program!
I am opening registrations for my "Fall into Fitness" virtual bootcamp! If you are ready to make a change and get fit this fall then comment below or send me a DM!
I am so excited to see where I am in a month! How about you!?!? #fitness#runningmama#progress#betterthaniwasyesterday#progressnotperfection#yoga#yogi#mindsetiseverything
Seven months ago ➡️ Current
My fitness journey has been incredibly frustrating but equally as fulfilling. A year and a half ago I wanted to be skinny - I thought the less calories and the more cardio the better until skinny didn’t really do it for me anymore. I would fall off the wagon and binge eat resulting in rapid weight gain (as pictured left). Currently, i lift heavy five days a week and I eat a lot (including carbs and fats too). The number on the scale is about the same but I’m leaner with a lot more muscle. I remain nutritionally aware of what I eat most of the time but I also splurge sometimes with ZERO shame. Just tryin to get thicccckkk and loving my body through the process 💪🏽🍑 #progressnotperfection#weightliftingmakesyouWAYmanly

We wanted to remain annonymous but also, we want you guys to get to know us!! The top picture was taken a couple of months ago, stuck in the same diet routine. We felt discouraged when we gained a whole bunch of weight back! .
Bottom photograph was taken last week!! Our faces are always the first to change but there’s no denying the difference in our clothing! The way we feel is incredible, enough energy to workout and get life done on the daily!! .
Thank you for venturing down this journey with us!!
Darling, there is no value in you playing small. You were called to bigger things - the world needs your genius, your voice, your experience, your story. The world needs you.
Stop playing safe, stop playing small. Lean in to the challenges and grow into the women you are destined to be. Be vast and brilliant. And don't worry, lovely girl. We've got your back.
In the last month I’ve been doing decent with my nutrition but definitely haven’t been as on top of it as I could/should be. Now with my work schedule easing up I’m ready to hit it hard and really see what I can do. I’m going to be strict with myself, plan better, manage better, work harder in the kitchen and the gym and see what I can do with my coach! @samkaroll get ready to kick my butt into high gear lol. 💪🏼 Now I accept that fact I won’t always nail it, but my overall goal is to be more disciplined plain and simple.
Lately has been crazy. I've had huge emotional rollercoasters. Seems like in a day i've went from love to hate and from happy to sad. I've felt content and dissatisfied at the same time. Seems things can never be stable...but, its not a bad thing. When im sad, it makes me work to feel happy. When i hate, im really motivated to be the better than what i am and when i'm dissatsfied, im way more focused on my goals and stick to them until i feel happy and satisfied again. Since this happened in such a short period. I kinda can evaluate what i shouldn't be feeling and yet be able to be happy. I need to be more disciplined. But i think the feelings that everyone trys to avoid can make an individual a better person in the end. So feel shitty, and feel depressed af. As long as u do things to help urself be better; it will be better in the end. #Progressnotperfection#gymrat#newmax#gymmotivation#gymlife#gym 💪💪 #gymlife 💪 #gymtime 💪 #gymjunkie#gymlover#lovegym#lovegymlife#lovegymtime#lovegymlife 💪😍❤️ #lovegym 😍
Today let's discuss ETIQUETTE at the gym. (This topic is sparked by the man who was so close to me on the weight floor that I kept hitting him while doing my lateral raises..like seriously move).
1️⃣ Be respectful of other people's space. This goes both ways I think...don't be the person who takes up an insane amount of space and hogs a ton of equipment, but also don't be the weirdo who stands on top of another person, do your bicep curls somewhere else sir.
2️⃣Re-rack your weights. THIS MAKES ME CRAZY. Awesome that you can leg press 8 plates on each side, but I don't want to have to put those plates away. Certainly if you can leg press that heavy you can handle putting your own plates away.
3️⃣Clean your equipment. I know for me, I sweat like crazy and I always try to be courteous by wiping my equipment. No one wants to sit in my sweat; just like I don't want to sit in anyone else's sweat. Also, germs, gross, people go to the gym to get healthy, not sick!
4️⃣DO NOT. I REPEAT - DO NOT. TALK ON YOUR CELL PHONE. There is always that one person on their bluetooth headset on the elliptical machine gabbing with their bestie and it's literally mind boggling. Take social hour somewhere else.
K SORRY. NEGATIVE RANT OVER. I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS

Skipping the gym today, tomorrow, maybe for a week, or a month— doesn’t make you a failure.
Indulging in something not-so-healthy doesn’t make you a failure. 🍕🍩
We both know that food was worth every bite.
You’ve only failed when you’ve given up completely on your health, and turned your back on yourself.
I just took the last 4 days off from the gym and definitely ate 2, maybe 3 days in a row of pure caloric surplus. And the best part is— I have no guilt.
I’m left with memories of a weekend full of laughter and love with amazing people. And maybe also just a touch of ambition to get back to the grind. 💪🏼
My body feels refreshed and rested from the time off, but eager to be active. 😌 When your consistent with something, it really does become a habit.
I actually am looking forward to going to the gym tonight. 👈🏼yes I really just said that.
Although I feel less defined, and a little fluffy in the abs — I’m okay with that for the first time in my life. Fitness is never a linear journey, 📈
but it is a l i f e t i m e adventure.✨

Day 1 to day 51.
Officially in the last phase of this program.
I wasted so much time and money on a gym that
1. I never made it to
2. Left me feeling that working out was useless because I didn’t see the value in it
I was stuck. .
I’ve made more progress working out at home for 1/10 of the price in two months than I did in years. .
This is why I do this. It’s something that has worked for me and I can schedule into my life easily. I know I can’t be the only one who needs this in their life 🙋🏼♀️ #80dayobsession#progressnotperfection#80do#progress#selflove#teachersofinstagram#healthcoach
