I'll admit I made up every excuse NOT to work out today! Truth be told I've slacked off the past few weeks and went into a vicious cycle of stress eating. Ugh shit is the WORST!! The weight started packing back on and let me tell you younger peeps something... Once you hit 30 sometimes that weight just wants to latch on and you have to work twice as hard to get it back off! I made my New Years resolution back in November and you know the stats once you hit mid January most of us just throw our hands up and just say, " F- it!" I'll try again next year. NOOOOO !!! Not the mentality I want to have! If I let myself go in one area then everything else will just fall apart and that is something I don't want. I know everything that I'm going through right now is a lesson. I want to hurry up and arrive at the destination that I'm envisioning. Life doesn't work that way most of the time. I know where I want to be, where I'm heading and I know this moment might not be the exact time to have all of my prayers answered but I feel it's coming and I just have to focus and keep pushing forward. God is telling me to wait just a little bit longer because there's going to be one HELLA DOPE lesson to be learned and story to be told that will inspire others. So I'm going to be still and listen. I'm thankful to have an amazing group of peeps to always uplift and inspire me! . Ps. F- push-up burpees!! 😣😣😣 I'm not going to be able to walk tomorrow but maybe I can turn this pancake ass into a nice firm 🍑🍑🍑 lol .
It’s my third year receiving this rich, fruit-studded sourdough magic in the mail made by @racheljensennyc. I can’t help but take in each bite as a memory, drenched in sugar coated icing. When I eat this bread I think of Rachel and the way she makes food into poetry. Dinosaur egg pluots with meringue and sabayon. Sourdough Kamut crisps with layers of flower pedals and herbs. Pineapple sage honeycrisp apple tisane. Flower bouquets of spring radishes. Everything she creates gives you a glimpse into a harvest inside of your heart, a glimpse into your beauty. It’s the best medicine. #sourdough#medicine#pleasecomecookwithmesoon#imissyou

Lots of times I post on social media to inspire others, to share that you too can do it, to let you know it's possible.. but sometimes it's because I need to reward myself. It's MY way, of saying.. you're a badass. You just got up. You pushed play when you COULD have slept. You chose your egg burritio this morning instead of the donut. Did you HAVE to? NOPE. But you DID. YOU FINISHED.
And sometimes just this little sweaty picture is my little reward. Because Abs, a new swimsuit, new workout clothes, the end of 80 days is too far away.. too far away to motivate me to get my booty out of bed at 5am... But today? Today I pushed play, and I just got ONE step closer to my end goal.
5am...Ran 3 miles on the dreadmill.
Did 60 Squats, 50 Sit Ups, 70 crunches, 25 leg raises, 85s plank... At lunch time, I was hungry so I ate another 3.5 miles with my SoHo Sistahz in the rain!! Did 60 more squats, 45 sit ups, 70 more crunches, 30 more leg raises, another 85s plank!! #DoneandDone#LaserFocused#NoWinterWeightGain#TeamNoExcuses#BGRChicago
I need to take more pictures of something other than food 😂🙄 #mealprep 🍴 ~ Very simple this week. Trying to spice things up & make different foods. Gotta switch it up or you'll get bored & unmotivated. I have a cup of chickpeas/corn/black beans/salsa with 1/2 cup chicken. I'm going to add some romaine lettuce leaves with these bad boys & make a lettuce wrap 😋 Even though this is kind of a lazy prep, it's still done & over with & I have dinner for the week. ✨ On another note, I won a @mutantnation prize pack from @popeyes_windsor! Can't wait to go pick it up! 💪🏼 // And then you have the two puppers waiting for a piece of chicken to drop ☺️ (good try pups! 🐾) #preparation#puppers#chicken#beans#corn#doneanddone#mutant#popeyes
Well these are the unofficial results but I think it’s pretty safe to say I passed! Rough times and good times. Thank you to everyone who has put up with me over the last few years👏🏻. I’ll be starting as an RN up at the Huntsman Cancer Institute next month. #passednclex#doneanddone#malenurse#booyah
