Just finished my last call of the day so having some dark chocolate bark. Basically it's melted dark chocolate spread out thinly with nuts addded and then put into the freezer to cool.
Simple and tasty 😁
If it doesn’t challenge you, it wont change you! I feel great today, I have been putting the work in and it’s paying off. I had two workouts in this morning before 730, two months ago I wouldn’t even have been out of bed yet. Starting my morning off right gives me such a sense of accomplishment and now I feel like I can rule the day!!
I always had big dreams — finishing my Bachelors degree, moving to FL, Graduate school and finding a job I LOVE in the field of autism, that I still have today (and love). My priorities NEVER included fitness or eating well and I lost myself along the way. I forgot about all of the things that I enjoyed doing and focused on EVERYONE and EVERYTHING else. I had been so concerned how to make other people happy I had no idea how to make myself happy. "People pleasing" became my first priority and I ate my feelings away day after day and night after night. At the end of everyday, I felt sick and tired of being sick and tired of being fat. •For years I have eaten my feelings (numbing the pain with ice cream and pizza), smiling on the outside but dying on the inside. Feeling chained down by such an unhealthy lifestyle, I continued do nothing but feel bad for myself and make excuses. I hated myself, hated looking in the mirror, hated going out in public, and especially hated who I had become. I felt stuck. •I made an investment in my health. I bought a workout program and a months worth of once a day superfood shakes — which I swore I would return for the money back guarantee. My first week I started FEELING better, stronger, more confident and less stuck. I had no idea that I would ever be back to my pre college weight or that I would ever like who I saw in the mirror. It didn’t happen overnight and it didn’t happen with a tummy tuck or a magic pill. It was daily consistent behaviors. My attitude and outlook upon life started to change. I stopped thinking about how to try to change other people and focused on how to change me. .
•It was so empowering. My dreams started becoming my reality. When I put the focus on me, I started realizing the impact it was having in their closest to me. SOMEDAY became ONE DAY at a time. The small changes led to big results.
One thing I do love about my day job is that I get to dress up everyday, which is perfect because I love clothes and I’ve got a lot of them (3 closet and 2 dressers full) 😆 what I don’t like so much is that I work on Saturdays and miss out on spending time with my husband and family/friends. Every day I work on my coaching business puts me one step closer to a lifetime of weekends off 😊 Success comes from what you do consistently not occasionally!
A little stronger everyday! Yes it’s Saturday, yes I still have to go to work and heck yes I got my workout in! You’ve got to hustle for the muscle, that means I don’t take weekends off! Favourite emoji below if you got your hustle in today! 💪💪💪
#flashbackfriday to the last legitimate hot and sunny day I didn’t bbq...because i thought there’d be more days like this 😑
Obvious lesson - embrace the change and get ready for fall/winter bbq season🍁🍂❄️
One life. Just one. Why aren’t we running like we are on fire towards our wildest dreams? What does your wild, crazy, seems out of reach dream life looks like?
Mine looks like being home on weekends. Spending more time with loved ones and friends. Being able to watch my kids grow and be there for them. I want the freedom to travel the world. I want financial freedom. The biggest thing of all I want to be healthy and fit enough to enjoy all of those things.
Guess what I made the choice to start working towards those goals by becoming an online health and fitness coach and you could do the same just ask me how!
😋why did I ever stop bringing a pack lunch to work? 🤤
Before starting Slimming World I would have just got a wrap or a roll from a deli counter, or a beloved meal deal, which at the time I loved and sometimes I still fantasise about but really, is it as good as this? @ryvitauk @lovemyphilly smoked salmon, tomatoes and spring onion 💕
🎺Dinner, dinner, dinner time 🎤 sing like summer time 🎷
The rest of the tuna mixed with onion, cucumber, tomato and sweet corn, that I had last night, with baby potatoes covered in slices of babybel cheese 🤣
Looking forward to sitting down in a minute with one (or three) of these!
Melt coconut oil & honey (for strict weight loss watch the honey)
Add dark choc
A few cranberries
Let sit in fridge or freezer.
Best to choose your own measurements.
It's 17:23 and I'm only just getting my lunch now! Been out on site since 10:30 and I can honestly say I've not thought about food more than today 😂 I didn't even get any water when I was out- just running on my half eaten apple yoghurt that I'm still not too sure about haha!
Also, when I say lunch, I had a mugshot and a share size grab bag of quavers 🤦🏼♀️
Aaaah I'm beyond thrilled! I went to group thinking I'd gained after my long weekend in Paris but I lost 6lbs! Yes, SIX POUNDS! Maybe the scales weren't calibrated correctly, but I wasn't going to question it 💃🏼 that's taken me to 2st 2lbs loss in total 🎢🎡🎠
Was feeling the change of seasons so made up a big batch of oxtail soup for the family. I slow cooked the oxtail for 12hrs and then added some veg. Might not look the best but I can tell you it's handsome!
A regular question we receive is “how many calories will you burn in a class?” So we tested it out. 🤗
Our classes consist of 35mins cardio/HIIT followed by 15mins of body conditioning exercises.
The calories roughly burn in the 35mins routine on Tuesday night was just short of 500calories.
Not bad for 35 mins of bouncing to fun routines and great tunes ☺️👍🏻🎼💦🎉👏🏻
