Making the shift this summer is gonna be fun! 10 years ago I hated fitness, and never had one thought about doing it. Only thing I thought about was partying and bullshit. 💯
Over the last 4 years I changed everything, even the people I surround myself with. I love the healthy lifestyle more than I thought I would. It's literally my life! Coming from 2 parents that never took care of themselves on the inside, and watching them struggle with diseases and illness, I made SURE that wasn't going to be me in the future. Have you seen the documentary #whatthehealth ? If not, watch it. I literally CRIED watching this, thinking of all the ways my parents could (and could have, my dad passed away) get healthy and reverse their diseases. That very day I switched to a plant based diet and don't plan on eating any other way from here on out. Today is day 2 of my fully plant based diet. Getting sweaty and sweating it out is LIFE!
Today is a good Monday.
Woke up to some good results this morning.
Pressed play on day 1 of #shaunweek with my main squeeze.
Ate a nutritious breakfast and got the call I've been waiting for to make my next moves in life.
I hope your Monday is as good as you hope for it to be . Happy Monday y'all 💜
YES!! I hit the fuckin goal y'all! Haven't seen this number or any number starting with a 1 in YEARS. For real, I can't even believe I committed, Usually I give up...but I needed this to show myself what I'm capable of again. So stick with it if you're working towards losing fat, you won't regret it. .
Cookies, brownies, and cakes are delicious, but so are apples, bananas, and avocado! And you know what's better than deliciousness?? HEALTH AND BEAUTY. Long hair, bright eyes, beaming smile, clear skin, GLOWING skin. No more back fat, no more stomach fat, no more going shopping and trying on 8 million things because nothing feels comfortable, or looks the way you want it to. More confidence, more smiles, more happiness, more HEALTH. You can do this, we all can. If you're reading this, show everyone you have the willpower, strength, and motivation to make it happen.
I've been stuck in a plateau for about 3 months, and it's been driving me crazy! So I decided to switch my regimen up with some MMA training. I mean why not? I can train for the body I want, and train to be a bad ass with a good ass all at once! 🤣🤣. I've tested it out over the last couple days, and my body is SUPER sore so I'm taking that as a sign.
Goals for this week 👇🏼
• Workout 6 days
•1 OFFICAL non-active rest day
•1 gallon of water every day • at least 2 days of yoga
• NO PHONE 📱 1 hour before bed (10 pm) • personal development
When you fall off, stand up and get back on! 👊🏼
I had to do a side by side comparison this week for #transformationtuesday . Striving for progress not perfection over here! On the left was September 2016 at 220 lbs. on the right is last week at 206.5 lbs. I had lost a total of 16 pounds but put on quite a bit of muscle in the last couple months doing a lifting program. So whenever you feel like shit and you're not seeing the results you are looking for in the mirror, TAKE A PHOTO. Even if you've already started and you've lost some weight already, or put on some muscle mass. Photos and measurements count for everything, I promise!
Progress coming along quite nicely 😍. Major leg and booty gains in the last couple weeks. So happy with this. Pretty soon I won't have to hide in big bulky sweaters. Still pushin and sweatin over here!
I used to take my progress and workouts so seriously, like beyond serious. Almost to the point that I was too aggressive about it. Now I'm just chillin, happy with what I have accomplished so far. Did Insanity Asylum: game day and Hammer and Chisel: Total body Chisel today from beach body on demand. Like for real ladies, if you haven't started lifting and you've only been doing cardio forever, GET THOSE WEIGHTS IN! That's where the most change happens, and that's where the most fat is shed. My stomach isn't flat by "standard" but it's much flatter than it used to be! Can't really tell much in this picture because of the sweatshirt, but I'm telling you. Get those weights in, build your body. I never really was into lifting weights because I didn't feel challenged enough....until I started LIFTING HEAVY. #gamechanger#liftingislife
