No tae kwon do today, came home yesterday to find someone had tried to break into my apartment. This was broken off in my door between the door and the frame near the lock. Didn't sleep at all last night woke up completely every time I heard a noise and had to check the door. Decided I was too tired to train today without injuring myself by not paying attention. Instead gonna go Thursday and Friday. #taekwondo#fatgirlfitness
Good morning and Happy Wednesday y'all!
Take this opportunity to think about what's holding you back from your goals. Look at everything in your life. And what your life would look like if you didn't have those burdens. Sometimes they're tangible burdens. Sometimes they're intangible. Either way, you have to determine what goes. You are the captain of your ship and if you want to fly, you gotta let it all go!
Make sure today you give yourself 30 minutes to increase your blood flow today. It can help clear your mind and spirit as well as your body. 💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜
The struggle y'all. I am one of those people who gets frustrated when I am not instantly better at something after doing it for like 2 days. So how inflexible I am is driving me crazy. I was a fairly serious athlete for most of my childhood and teenage years. It hasn't been that long since I could touch my toes and forward fold with my nose to my knees. Now I can't even get my feet flat on downward facing dog. But dang it, I am determined to get back to being in that kind of shape!!
Yoga done every night for 4 days, 7 Minute Workout last night again (I skipped the weekend because we did like 5 miles extra walking going to a football game!) And healthier eating all weekend. I am doing #naturallyslim , which means no added sugar, portion control and paying attention to only eating when I am actually hungry--not to eat because I feel like it or because food is available. Part of that is making sure you are hydrating so I got an infuser water bottle. Today is strawberry lime water!
I made spaghetti last night and literally ate less than half the portion I normally would because I served myself a smaller portion and ate slowly. And magically, I was actually just comfortable full, not stuffed like I normally am because I had a second giant plate of pasta!
Good morning and Happy Tuesday!! Whatever your journey is.... even if YOU think you aren't where you think you are, you're moving forward. Stagnation always happens no matter what but forward is still forward. Stay encouraged y'all!!! 💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿
It may seem counter Intuitive to wear heels before tae kwon do, but I walk with supination *on the outside blade of my feet * heels force me to step properly and stretch out my feet muscles meaning my planer fashciatous (sp?) Doesn't act up. #taekwondo#fatgirlfitness#fatgirlfashion
Good morning and Happy Monday! It's going to be a beautiful day and week! Take this day to feel inspired by your new goals this week. Whatever they are. There's a LOT of stuff going on for me this week so I'm basically on auto pilot!😂😂😂
But I hope that you all are feeling inspired today and moving forward! 💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿
When I left my house the Broncos were winning and when I got back, still winning!! 👏🏻🙌🏻👊🏻
But seriously though, starting of week 3 was a bit rough. It had two 3 minute jog intervals this time and I was slooooowwwww. I was a bit tired today though. We had a long day. Church and then baptisms at the beach and I was there until 3 so maybe that contributed to how slow I was on my jog. Khloe was super excited to leave the house but half way through she was trying to steer me home. Not happening dog.
Ok now I'm going to go back to the broncs and cowgirls game.
I think these holes near the toes mean it's time for some new #gymshoes 🏋🏻♀️🏋🏻♀️ .
Also.. what the hell am I doing when I work out for it to happen on BOTH of them?! 🤷🏻♀️ .
(This ain't the bridesmaid dress I chose y'all)
Don't we just LOVE bridesmaid dress shopping?!? Not gonna lie, I don't. It's going to be nerve wrecking because I have to have this dress ordered by November. AND the wedding is Next August. Oh, did I remind y'all that I'm losing weight too?!? .
So y'all wish me luck for the next 11 months as I figure out how to maneuver this Bridesmaid situation! Any helpful suggestions from bridesmaids will help! 💍👰🏾👗💪🏿🤷🏿♀️
Good morning and Happy Saturday! This is fitting today. Sometimes you realize how much of an effect on people by how much you piss them off.
My only suggestion is keep going. Be equally as unbothered. It's not easy, especially if these are people who you used to know. And it hurts but you are your biggest priority. And you have to care for yourself. The people who will be genuinely a part of your life, will not be mad at you doing what you need to do for you. .
Enjoy your weekend everyone because it's going to be a beautiful day! ☀️☀️☀️☀️
I was inspired by my sister-in-law who has been doing the 7 Minute Workout and doing really well with it. So I figured I would try. Never realize how out of shape you are until you are dying after 7 minutes. But yoga after made it feel like I will at least be able to move tomorrow! My goal is to try to work up to a full (beginner's) workout which is 7 minutes for 3 cycles plus 30 minutes of yoga a day!
Morning plank day4? I refuse to let my cold stop me from doing my daily plank. It's just one plank. I can and I will. Today I was able to go for longer (25seconds) #plankchallenge#progress#fatgirlfitness
Good morning and Happy Thursday y'all! What a beautiful day! Mainly cuz SOMEBODY IS HAVING A BABY! Oh no.... not me. But my bestie is! 😏😏😏So today is the perfect day to have a baby! 👶🏽 .
But for everyone else- just focus on the now. Don't worry about yesterday, don't worry about tomorrow, just today. Now.
Make it a good one y'all! 💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿
I struggled today because I allowed someone's fat antagonism to get to me. I think one of the biggest drawbacks on social media is that we have people who are absolutely miserable and just say whatever they think because for them- being an asshole is fun. They think it's edgy, they think it's hip, they think it's cool.
I've told y'all my story. I've shared it hundreds of times. I'm not ashamed of it and I'm never going to take advantage of my story. I worked my ass off.
And as I said in my IG stories and it's no shade to anyone- but a lot of folks tend to think weight loss is think quick and easy thing and if you not losing 100lbs in a year, then SOMETHING is wrong. Every bodies are different.
So you expect me to be in a S/m by September when I started to really lift by January? What the fuck is wrong with y'all?
That's why taking breaks from social media is important bc we expect these folks to lose weight rapidly for what? Expose? For sponsorships? Like is it really worth it?
How about let folks do them. I'm fine with 1900 friends/followers. This is about me and my goals and if you have a problem with me working my ass off and not shaving off enough inches for you then you can quietly unfollow me.
Don't let social media ruin your perception of healthy weight loss. And don't assume everyone's weight loss journey is the same. ✌🏾 #effyourbeautystandards
Good morning and welcome to the middle of the week! One thing people(specifically women) come and talk to me about is how they're afraid of being bulky. Listen, I get it. It's a frustrating thing to be told that you'll lose your femininity lifting weights but if you identify as a femme or as a Cis woman, no amount of muscle will take that away from you. Moreso, if you allow other people to project their own insecurities about women, what also does that say about you? Are you doing this for you? Or for them?
And I was one of them. I never lifted weights even though I was completely enthralled with them. But I was so scared and I tied my whole gender into metal/steel weights. And my gender is so much more than that. Yours is too.
But the funny thing is that it would take a LONG time to get to a Ms Olympia level size. Trust me, lifting weights 3x a week won't get you there.
So if you're looking into lifting weights🏋🏿♀️, go for it! Thank me later. ----------------------------------------------
Today is Workout Wednesday so make sure you take 30 mins of your day to elevating your heart rate. Your body will thank you! 💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜💪🏿💜
So today and the coming weeks ahead will always be tough. Today was the day 10 years ago I took my mom to the hospital. And for whatever reason, she must've known she wasn't going to live that much longer. So I had a lot of sadness within me today. I went to therapy and talked about how amazing she was and she looked at me and she said, "Kirsten, for the first time in 10 years, you're living. You may still have issues with your body but remember that you wasn't able to do the things you said you couldn't do when you first saw me." .
And she's right. I thought about how I couldn't raise my arms, use my left hand, walk, sit or stand for long periods of time. So, despite my depression, despite me thinking of my mom today, I decided to do what was best for me and go to the place that gets me right. And it's my gym. I love it. It's my high. It's my drug. It's now become my whole world. .
I won't speak for those who suffer from clinical depression or those with other mental illness but I can speak for me and that the gym literally and figuratively saved my life.
My mom is not here in the physical to witness this testimony but I know she's screaming from the other side, "YOU GO KIKI!". 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜
Also shout out to @followthelita @thickathletics_apparel for the dope shirt! I was shocked I could wear this shirt and it's an XL. @gap for the fly ass leggings. .
