LOL ANOTHER FOOD POST SORRY 'BOUT IT 🤷🏽♀️😍 But seriously though....I couldn't keep this one to myself: quinoa, chicken, sautéed mushrooms, and red pepper - tossed together w/ pesto and added a side of broccoli 🙌🏼 Thank god for my challenge groups always encouraging me to try new recipes, otherwise I would be SOOO boring with my food 🙄 Food shouldn't have to be boring, and you shouldn't have to eat less to be healthy. JUST EAT MORE GOOD FOOD ❤️ #SayNoToDiets 🙅🏽 Good food = fuel for your body, soul, brain, and gut (nerd fact: your gut is a second brain, how cool is thattttt 😎) • Also BLESSSS UPPPP that I have an online wellness studio with literally hundreds of recipes to try (did she say hundreds? Yes hundreds. I think...not actually sure never counted. But there's A TON). A community of inspiring women who love food and inspire me to be a better me?? SIGN ME UP 🙋🏽 (jk I jumped on that train a while ago, but you can always sign up w/ my #LinkInBio 😜) • •
Side note: can "passionate about food" be used as a strength on my future resume? 🤔💃🏽🔥
High five to me🖐🏻😸
I am super proud of myself for finding something that I LOVE to do. The feeling of being stuck in a job that makes you feel unappreciated and unwanted are over for me! I never thought it was possible to love what you do because I always had jobs that pushed the boundaries of what I believe in KINDNESS. I remember having to telling people things I didn’t agree with because “a manager does what’s tough for the company, it shows leadership”. Part of that was on me because let’s be honest we don’t have to do those things if we don’t want to but when you feel stuck it’s hard! One day I listened to my gut feeling and now I am here today happy as can be helping woman with their goals. It’s inspiring and motivating to talk to woman about what they want and how they are gonna achieve it and then watch them get it✌🏻
upper /kickboxing wit 10 min extra no weight video&10 min standing core work cuz whatever I was feelin like it
NEVER do I really want to workout. It is not that fun to me.just something I HAVE to do... What keeps me going everyday is the burned in feeling of how terrible I felt when I diddnt...
I can EASILY slip into bad habits
So I save the 911 skip days for long days working where physically I can’t do a workout or when I’m a complete bag of booze from a night before
But getting preetty pretttttyyyy good (lol)
At doing hangover workouts ,and avoiding the hangovers alltogether
I’m not perfect.i still drink ,eat ice cream and have dirty ass mirrors annnnn I don’t give a fuxk .and that said I ammmmm going out to the bar until 2am tonight soooooooo where’s my water
I received a message today from a girl that actually made me tear up 😭 She told me that she looks to me for inspiration and motivation to seek a life filled with passion 💗 💛 ME?! Are you sure?! 😫
If you would have told me a two years ago that I was someone else's inspo, I would have DIED of fear and disbelief.. 😳
I was just a girl who had no idea what the hell she was doing, didn't have any self confidence or self love but I KNEW I HAD TO try something new and go after MY dream life!
I still show up every single day, work reallllly hard and when others quit when things get tough, I keep moving forward... & the best part?
I'm in this for the long haul. Im building a sustainable, fun and PASSION FILLED BUSINESS. There's no turning back 🙌🏼
Come hang with me this week virtually to see how you can feel this way too!!!!!!!!! ➡️💻💌
This says it all. It is hard to lose weight. I want to quit. I want to eat cookies everyday, I want to drink wine when I want, I want to go out to eat more often...etc. It is also hard to not like how I look or feel in my own clothes. I WILL NOT QUIT.
It’s been a while but here are my #TransformationTuesday photos. Photos tell you more than the scale sometimes. Look at that left sleeve in the after! Crazy! Sometimes it’s the small changes that astound you the most. Don’t give up! And if life throws you for a loop, dust yourself off as many times as you need to until you find your way back to the path you were on. I feel like I am finally making my way back!!
Am going to Spain on Saturday and so stood in front of my wardrobe in desperation this evening. Was amazed when clothes that haven’t fitted for 4 years are going into suitcase. And they’re two sizes smaller than I’m used to! Massive #nsv and feeling SO SO HAPPY!
Laaaanch is my accidentally bought chunk lightmushy ass tuna on salad with onions and cheese( which makes it all OK )& a plain Lacroix.
I’ve been covering up this candy corn a roommate brought home with car insurance paperwork for the last few days trying to forget about it...... #mindgames
So not only is it a transformation Tuesday, but a little non scale victory as well! First and foremost there is 88lbs between these two photos. I've been on this journey since Jan 2016. It has not been easy, but has been worth it. Being able to do things I couldn't before. Not crying every time I look in the mirror, not hating myself, and being able to have confidence, something I never had. I feel good about myself. And my non scale victory to go along with it.... the pants I'm wearing in the right pic, are my husbands! Guys I fit into my HUSBANDS pants! AND to top it off, I still had room in the waist. They weren't even tight! Let me tell you, losing weight, and all these non scale victories, make this journey worth it! I've fallen off more times then I can count, but I never quit. I jumped right back on. My best advice to anyone who is starting, is you may not see results right away, but I PROMISE it will happen. I promise it'll be worth it, and I promise that if you don't give up, a year from now you'll look back and be so proud of yourself! #transformationtuesday#nonscalevictory#nsv#hardworkpaysoff#nevergiveup#soproud#determined#motivated#thisismystory#thisismyjourney#myweightlossstory#myweightlossjourney
So yesterday my consultant rang me after I texted him asking how I fill in the fit logs as I couldn't get my head around the 5, 10, 15 mins sessions when I say, do a 1hr session of Zumba. So he asked all that I do, school runs, walking to group, zumba etc plus my new aerobics sessions too and he was like wow, You can go straight to Gold! I've been doing most of them for a while like walking to group and school runs but I was totally oblivious till someone in group got a certificate so I went on the hunt to work out what I had to do - as I live for the certificate life 😂😂 I was so excited!! I may have gained 0.5lbs last night, but I was totally fine with that (thought itd be bigger after alcohol&cheesecake the night before weigh in!!). Also set myself a Xmas goal of getting my 4st award.. that's 13lbs away. I always "wanted" to reach target ready for Christmas but I wasn't sure over a stone was achievable in 9 weigh ins so I'm going for a goal that averages out at 1.5lbs a week needed 🙄 we can do this 😁😄 ((swipe to see my consultant completely embarrassing me in our fb group 😂😂😂 oh and I never mentioned.. he made me tell everyone what I've been doing "to get these awards" I don't think I've ever gone so red 😂)) #slimmingworld#slimmingworldmum#swlife#swfood#speed#veg#tasty#yummy#tasty#foodoptimising#freefoods#certificates#losingweight#nsv#happydance#smiles
This is my period body. I'm so proud because the results I used to get were always temporary. I was always one carb away from undoing all my progress, and one missed workout away from my pants not zipping. And period week? Forget about wearing anything cute or feeling good at all. I can remember that feeling perfectly, the dread hanging over me... Is this meal going to be the straw that breaks the camel's back? I want you to get results that last. I want to give you the gift of NEVER holding your breath, gritting your teeth, and sucking it in as you pull your pants over your hips. Enrollment for my November accountability group starts tonight... Are you in?? The link is in my profile. Let's do this together. Opened to 🇺🇸🇬🇧🇨🇦 !
Also... Don't judge. I'm doing laundry. FINALLY.
