Glow in the dark yoga ✔️ Feeling extra thankful I'm able to participate in things like this. A few years ago I would have literally ran the opposite way from any kind of group exercise 🙅🏻 I would have been soooo anxious and negatively commenting on myself the entire time. Instead of enjoying the crazy, energetic atmosphere I would have spent the hour continually degrading myself for the things I couldn't do and comparing myself to everyone there.
Not anymore 🚫 Today I voluntarily stepped outside my comfort zone and had FUN 🤣💁🏻 No I could not do every move but that was not the point!! I went there to ENJOY myself and the people around me. I'd call today a success 💖🙌🏻
So I'm getting my ass kicked by my new PCOS meds. Hopefully my body levels out soon because I haven't been able to work out and I'm weak af. I'm itching to lift heavy and build some muscle. It's all gone 😩
Hey guys so I need to say a few things. It has come to my attention that I am apparently ghost following people.
This is so incredibly petty and childish that I want to scream. I, like many others, have a packed life that is not shown on social media. I am currently in my final semester of student teaching which means I am basically a teacher with the full responsibilities of a regular, hired teacher on top of other classes. Losing weight is a huge part of my life, however, my career and real life responsibilities take number one priority over running social media accounts and always will.
I absolutely appreciate every single one of my followers and the support you all show me through likes and encouraging comments and more, but sometimes it is not always feasible for me to even jump on social media whether to browse my feed or even post. I know some will say a like on a photo takes two seconds, but like I said, I have more important priorities. Some days I just don't have interesting content to post or I am exhausted, so I don't post anything I love sharing this journey and supporting others don't get me wrong!!
I sincerely apologize if any of you feel that I "ghost follow" you or don't have interesting content or whatever. If that's the case please feel free to unfollow me. We are all in this journey together and I support every single one of you through the victories to the bad days whether I "show" it or not on a daily basis.

Only a few more months left before the temperature drops below 70 degrees here in So Cal, and I won't be able to take my barefoot walks.
I know I'm lucky, and sometimes I take it for granted. Worse, sometimes I forget to take advantage of it.
Let me start by saying how much I love cheeseburgers. I thought my love for cheeseburgers was insurmountable, but my desire for happiness takes priority.
Three years ago, I was 80 pounds heavier, crippled with anxiety, battling depression, and just plain scared. I had been diagnosed with PCOS. As a 17 year old, fighting a chronic disease I felt defeated.
At first I comforted myself with food. I wouldn't eat breakfast (a big no no), then for lunch I would have a McChicken with fries, and for dinner: two McChickens, a Big Mac, fries, and a vanilla shake. Looking back now I am utterly disgusted, but at the time that is how I coped. I remember feeling full, but still continuing to eat. The binging was my way of taking control of the situation.
Eventually my clothes stopped fitting, my complexion was horrible, and my health was out of control. My PCOS symptoms were at an all time high. I was pre-diabetic and my BMI was more than I care to admit.
I knew I had to make a change. I didn't know where to turn to until a girl reached out to me about home workouts and accountability groups. I was safely hidden away from the world with my support system 🙌🏻 Soon enough the pounds started dropping. I became addicted to the endorphins and less reliant on the McDonalds.
I have my ups and downs. I have weeks where I eat completely clean and workout everyday. I also have weeks where I don't and have nachos several times.
From the beginning, my goal was to be happy. I have found happiness through balance. I don't drag myself to the gym. And when I feel tired I let myself sleep the extra two hours. I still eat cheeseburgers, but I don't feel guilty because I know I am taking care of my body.
I have realized during this time is that goals are more attainable with others supporting you along the way. Eat those cheeseburgers to keep your sanity, but also exercise so you can eat those cheeseburgers for 60 more years!
