Hey, happy Monday!
Just your friendly reminder ☝🏼 that if you mess up there is this great invention called white out (does anybody use that anymore and why don't they have an Instagram??) and second chances ✌🏼
If and when you fall, take a deep breath a try again.
Today’s card pull!
Message I got: accept defeat, regain peace, salvage what is, and begin again!
For moths I have struggled with inner peace. I looked back in my journal last night and came to the realization I need to stop focusing on whatever it is that’s holding me back and move forward. *
These cards confirmed that for me!
I’m going to take some time, dig deep, and see if I can find what’s holding me back. If not, I’ll move on and continue with my lovely peace filled life!
Have you tried exercising regularly and fallen off your routine? Have you tried losing weight and then abandon your program only to feel like a failure? Don't get stuck. You need to move forward and get back on it. Remember, if you fall, get up and dust off, no matter how many times you have to. You'll never know success, unless you try again. This time you will succeed. Don't quit!

This is how I pose in gym pics vs. how I actually feel. I’ve been positing a lot of body positivity/work out pics lately but I wanted to be transparent about why. I hate summer weather. I am constantly sweaty and sticky and feeling uncomfortable. No matter what I do I can’t get my chub rub to stop chaffing and leaving rashes, so cute skirts and dresses suck without spanx or shorts. Backless anything is out of the question because my tatas need support. I am such a big advocate for body positivity with others but I have been STRUGGLING lately when it comes to myself. I’ve been comparing myself to others that are built different than me. Not skinnier than me, because skinny can be a toxic word, just different and I’ve been having incredibly low self esteem. I go to the gym to feel strong and more comfortable in my body, and posting my progress has helped me see the difference even if I don’t feel it and in some ways it’s helped but in others, like today, it can be a downer that I’m not feeling myself like the promise of going to the gym is perceived to be. Today I had a hard time completing my sets and feeling good in my form. I had to take a lot of breaks and I though I know that that is totally ok and you need to listen to your body, it was just a reminder that I’m not where I want to be yet physically and that progress takes time. We are all dealing with different issues, physically, mentally, spiritually, this one just happens to be mine. I hope this reaches someone who is feeling the same way, because I know I’m not alone, I just need to take it one day at a time, and so do you. I believe in you, and I’ll try to believe in myself the same way. That’s all. ♥️

The path to victory is always going to be lined with resistance. We will ALL feel resistance when trying to reach our goals. Some people push on despite it & others quit & say “Oh maybe I’m not meant for this” when in reality it’s those very obstacles that are going to lead them to success in the future.
It also doesn’t help that we live in a world of instant gratification, I fully admit I get inpatient when a page takes longer than 1 second to load 🤷🏻♀️ & I know that’s how so many people feel about their fitness goals.
It takes months & years of consistency to reach your goals. It’s takes being uncomfortable & having to find solutions for obstacles that come your way (my fave excuse is “I just don’t have time to eat”). It takes trusting the process & that some weeks you won’t lose ANY weight despite how hard you’re working.
& for my girls that compete and don’t win the first time around... it takes the mental strength to get back to the drawing board & continue to push yourself again & again. Ease is a greater threat to progress than difficulty 🖤💪🏼
Happy Monday friends, what times in life have you pushed resistance aside & pressed on? Let’s share stories & motivate each other! I hope you have a great day!
〰Mon Propre Triathlon〰
➡Après mon échec de samedi j'ai eu une nouvelle idée. Pour rappel j'ai abandonné le triathlon S (🏊750m, 🚴20km, 🏃5km) à l'épreuve de natation dans le lac. Des mois d'entraînement pour rien...
➡Aujourd'hui dernier jour de vacances j'ai encore le vélo de route que j'ai loué pour une journée alors que faire....
➡J'ai décidé de faire mon triathlon M
🏊1500m, 🚴40km, 🏃10km
➡Il se trouve que la piscine était exceptionnellement fermée ce matin alors j'ai du commencer par le vélo.
✔🚴41 km de vélo de route au bord du canal latéral de la Garonne. Un vrai régal 😄🔹2h00min42sec
✔🏃10km de course à pied: j'avoue j'étais bien fatiguée à la fin mais j'avais quand même un rythme de 6.22min/km 😀🔹1h03min02sec
✔🏊1500m à la piscine que j'ai eu un peu de mal à enchaîner parce qu'il y avait pas mal de monde 🔹40min00sec
➡TOTAL de 3h43min44sec
➡Bon bien sûr je n'étais pas en compétition et les temps de transition de sont pas les mêmes mais j'ai essayé de tout compter au maximum.
➡Ça compensera pas totalement l'échec de samedi mais je suis contente d'avoir réussi à faire l'équivalent d'un triathlon M 😀
Breastfeeding is hard, especially when you’re just beginning. Perfecting your baby’s latch doesn’t happen right away! Take time to rest with your baby, skin to skin. Be kind to yourself and try again! The sun will rise, mama. ✨ #yougotthis#mondaymotivation 📷: @among.the.flowers
BBG week 2 day 3 challenge! Gosh, almost died at Day 2 and Day 3 arms and abs ( which consist of straight leg jack knife, commando and mountain climb with one push up). I could only do a half push up, moved too much of my ass during commando, and had to modify my jack knife cause I couldn’t do a full leg out! 😭 #bbgweek2#tryagain#workharder#somethingisbetterthannothing
La photo d'avant Ok mais jsuis plus un mec comme ça en vrai vous laissez pas avoir par insta ! 😂😂😂😂 le #fail c'est toute ma vie 😏 #tryagain#makingof d'une journee bien trop géniale ☝️🏽☝️🏽☝️🏽 sans oublier le sublime #painbouchon gratiné 😌
I told him it was Monday and dad had to work all day 🤨#tryagain I hope our play date with friends later today will cheer him up. We are making dairy free chocolate chip cookies. Do you have a dairy free version you love? Share it please!
One week ago I started the intro into the new program I’m starting July. Only one week in and I am down 4lbs. I’m lifting heavier weights. I’m noticing my body changing.
This is probably the easiest to follow program to date. Believe me I need easy right now!
The workouts are only 20 minutes.
I’m eating yummy food, I even had a glass of wine last week totally program approved.
I only have 6 spots left for the exclusive test group. If you want to snag one before they are gone, reach out 💕
