WARNING: owning cats may cause extreme happiness!!!!!! 😊😊😻
I seriously LOVE these goofballs. When I registered them as emotional support animals I wasn’t 100% clear on how they were my emotional support but I knew I needed them as much as they need me. Sometimes I get anxiety being away from them for too long because I mean...look how CUTE they are!!!!! But seriously I do not know what I’d do without these little critters. Sometimes when I’m feeling absolutely low, I come home and am reminded that I HAVE to be here. I am responsible for their lives and that thought along keeps me going even when I don’t feel like it. Rudy and Little One...thank you for allowing me to take care of you and love you immensely. You have NO idea how much you mean to me! 😻❤️❤️
Yo fui de las que ponia 20 excusas para hacer workouts y siempre estaba llorando. Que si trabajaba 14 horas al dia y no tenia tiempo, que estaba con una bebe recien nacida, que si las dietas me iban a ayudar, que llegaba cansada a casa y no tenia tiempo para el gym 🤦🏻♀️😒 Baje 20lbs en 8 semanas usando pesas de 5lbs en mi hogar. Este año decidi hacer mi gym en casa porque solo tenemos un carro y literalmente lo logre. Todo lo compre en walmart y lo uso cuando deseo y le añado lo que quiera. Ahora hago mis ejercicios con mi hija, la ven en todos los workouts y me reto a llegar a mi meta yo sola. No hay excusa, 30 minutos del dia no es nada pero para tu salud lo es todo 💪🏼 #noexcuse#noexcusemom#healthyliving#herbalifenutrition#herbalifecoach#journeytofit#momof1#strongmom#homeworkout#homegym#goldsgym#workout
This sits hard with me.
I constantly would chose "what I want now" (Laziness, unhealthy food, convenience, etc...) over what I wanted most (Be Proactive, TO BE HEALTHY, work for my goals) and was feeling like CRAP about myself because I wasn't doing what my body and soul was longing for.
It will be a long journey and I'm still on the road there but feeling so much better because I am setting out to do what my inner voice has been screaming. .
How many of us can say they have health goals that aren't getting met?
You are awesome @fitblue26
"Both of these photos are progress pics. Both are the same person but so completely different. The picture on the left was only from March, just a couple month difference. On the outside, it doesn't look like much but on the inside is completely different. The girl on the left was scared, unhappy, and hated herself. The girl on the right, just months apart, loves herself to the core, is incredibly happy and healthy, enjoying life as much as possible, never scared or holding back. She is confident and strong. Her smile is real. Both girls are me. Both girls I am proud of. Both girls have been and are going through so much but both girls are coming out on the other side. Never give up on who you want to be or what you want or who you want in your life. Never let fear take over. Never stop dreaming."
🇺🇸There are 2 kinds of people. One kind does great things and the other kind pretends they do great things.

Listen, I know 4 pounds doesn’t seem like much to your average joe but seriously I’m so thrilled! Since having my first and now my second baby just 7 months ago I have struggled hardcore with losing weight so too see the numbers changing is a nice chance of pace and I’m excited to see where it takes me.
Transformation tuesday!! The picture on the left is from 10/4/17 when I first started my new fitness journey. The photo on the right is from 11/19/17. In just a little over a month I have been able to drop almost 10 pds not only that I have noticed that I'm not as bloated. What surprises me is that the photo on the left I was eating a low carb low calorie diet, where as on the left I have carbs 🍚🍠 and have increased my calories by 50% or so. Carbs get a bad wrap but they fuel my gym sessions. I am beyond excited to see where this journey takes me but until then I'm just gonna enjoy every carb🍞, every workout🏋️♀️,and every good 😁and bad day😧 because to me the process is more rewarding then the end result. I couldn't have even gotten this far without my copilot 👩✈️@sarahdfit or my tiffanywhite 🦄 amazing coach @tiffanyeliteaesthetics or @eliteaestheticsaz they are truly amazing and encouraging people!! These people put the sweetness in sweet potatoes 🍠 2018 I can't wait to see what you have in store for us!!
Day 2 of my cleanse and I’m.... surviving. Apparently I really needed this as I’ve been detoxing like a mofo over here. My head feels foggy and on the verge of a massive headache but I’m keeping it under control with lots of water.
Day 2 summary goes something like this:
I miss my coffee ☕️ I’m craving eggs 🥚
Can I go to bed now?🛌 I’m half way through it and I’ve never regretted doing this the other 3 times I’ve done it. The light at the end of the tunnel is in sight.
What up you little turkey gobblers!? As we all know Thanksgiving is close and I can already smell it so I thought it’d be appropriate to provide you with a workout/circuit that you can do at your house before the big feast.
Doing these exercises back to back with no break helps to keep your heart rate up throughout the entire workout. When you’re heart rate is up, we’re burning calories and since we even have some body weight resistance exercises, we’ll get a little increase on the metabolic side as well.
So here’s the rules. Each exercise is to be done for 30 seconds. With no break, move to the next exercise and jump right into it. Only take a break when you’re done with all the exercises. Give yourself about a 1-2 minute break depending on your fitness level and hit another round for me! And then.... one more! I know I know I’m an asshole but hey I’m just looking out for ya so you can survive this feast you’re about to partake in. Here’s the list of exercises.
BURPEES (FU burpees)
One more thing! I don’t expect you to have step up platforms at your house so just find a stair and go to town. Or a box. Or a cat. No not a cat!! Ya weirdo.
Happy training! 🦃
Yesterday I weighed in at 130.8 and screamed with excitement.
You see, 2 years ago I started this journey to healthy and 130 was my ideal "healthy weight" but I wanted to build it on.
Not like I really had any choice in the matter. I always hovered around 117-119 my entire adult life. I could eat more than a grown man and not gain an ounce.
Sure, I was skinny but It wasn't healthy. For my height (Im roughly 5ft 10in tall), 117 is extremely under weight. Not only was I uncomfortable with it, I was also sick most of the time. Feeling lethargic and nauseas and weak 90% of the time isn't fun.
So I battled. I battled my body to figure out how to gain. There were a lot of trial and error. There was a lot of fall backs. Weight gained, weight lost again.
Yesterday when I saw that scale read 130, I was so fucking proud of myself and what I've BUILT. (130.8lbs, 100.3lbs of muscle mass btw 😜💪) Because that's what all of this is really about. Finding out what I'm capable of. Personally putting in the work to build something that is mine.
No one handed me this. No one put the extra inches of muscle on my thighs and hips and arms. While yes, I've had some amazing coaches and guidance along the way, I put in thr work. I stayed commitment. That is MY accomplishment and damn, it feels good!
Happy Tuesday everyone! I don't have many pics of me before I started my fitness journey, and even early on I didn't take very many, but here's one from last new years eve day - I love snow so I'd bundled up and gone for a chilly walk in the quiet that only comes when snow is falling.
Last night it was chilly again, but probably 10C warmer, so not so many layers required. I'm so happy I've stuck to it this last year, seen some great results thus far, now to keep at it through the holidays!
My transformation Tuesday - last year when i started working out I avoided all mirrors. I couldn’t stand seeing myself in one. Now I workout every day In front of this one. Feels so good to see my smiling face and knowing that I’m not hiding anymore! #transformationtuesday#transformation#journeytofit
A good rule is to not eat ingredients you can’t pronounce...except quinoa, you should eat quinoa.😜
•Instead of overnight oats I made this combo of chia pudding & “overnight quinoa” with leftover quinoa I already had made!👍🏼
Hey there Tuesday 👋🏼
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day! I have to finish up some cleaning and laundry before heading back to work tomorrow. Gotta try to be extra productive today🤞🏼I think I almost have my 30 Day Challenge wrapped up, so hopefully I will be posting that later today. Stay positive ✨ Conquer the day ✨
✨Transformation Tuesday!✨ It doesn’t matter how slow you go as long as you don’t stop!
My transformation is not show stopping, I don’t have a crazy six pack #goals , but I did show up every day and tried my hardest! It was hard work and there were days it felt like I wasn’t going anywhere, but with an awesome support groups pushing me every day to show up, I couldn’t help but keep going and I am so glad I did!! I not only lost 20 lb and gained a crap ton of muscle, but I feel good, I feel strong, i have more energy, gained my health back, gained confidence in myself and learned that I am capable of SO much more than I ever new was possible. I no longer show up to get to my goal weight. I show up because I FEEL amazing!! #cantstopwontstop
The girl on the left is smiling out of fear because she doesn’t know what the future will hold. The girl on the right is smiling because she knows whatever it’s holding, she can face it head on💪🏼
Happy Transformation Tuesday! 🙌🏼 Today, I am 2 months post plastics. (Swipe to see my scar currently and my cute new belly button.) 👉🏼 In September, I had an extended tummy tuck with lipo where they removed 7lbs of skin and fat. 🤭Recovery was not bad at all thanks to my amazing husband @a_villain83 and support system. I was back to work in 10 days. I am still getting used to my new body but I love being free of all that extra skin. Next phase is getting back to the gym and getting my endurance up. 💪🏼🏃🏽♀️ Thanks for following me on my journey. ♥️♥️ #transformationtuesday

If you saw my post from yesterday, you know I injured myself last week in the gym. I’m now feeling a lot better, however, when it first happened, I had to adjust my normal workout routine. Throughout that time, I still went to the gym, but simply walked on the treadmill (which was the only activity that didn’t cause any pain). If you get injured, I highly recommend trying to find an alternative workout that you‘re capable of doing. Obviously, there is no need to play hero. The worst thing you can do is try to do something your body isn’t capable of and re-injure yourself (or injure yourself in another way). But if there is a way you can stay active everyday, do it. Why is this important? Hint: It’s not (just) because exercise is good for you. It’s because if you can find a way to move every day, your brain will keep thinking “I am healthy” and thus you’ll be more likely to make eating decisions that KEEP you healthy. Remember, diet is 90% of the battle! Personally, I know if I skip a workout, I tend to eat much worse because my brain isn’t thinking “healthy.” Keep yourself thinking healthy, find a way to be active, and don’t let your injury become an even bigger set back.
🙈OMG I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M DOING THIS!!!🙈 Completely jumping off a cliff and putting myself out there for the entire world to see me. 😳 My family may think I’m bananas for doing this...but this is HARDCORE ACCOUNTABILITY 👊🏽 And...I truly believe that there are women out there who are JUST LIKE ME struggling to find happiness and acceptance with their bodies. Struggling to believe in themselves. Struggling to start over. .
⭐️ So here I am with my #progresspicture 👀 I’m not yet where I want to be...but I’m not where I was. I’m stronger than when I started. This is an EVERY DAY DECISION. And...I’m not sucking my gut in!!! Yessss!! .
⭐️ Every day choosing to eat better. Every day choosing to get up and move. Every day choosing to push myself a little harder than yesterday. Every day choosing to renew my mind about what I Can do. .
⭐️I’m starting an accountability group of women who want to change but just don’t know what to do. I’m not a trainer but I can show you what I am doing. I can show you what I’ve learned. I can help keep you accountable. I can be the voice that tells you that you are a Bad Ass and you CAN do it! 💪🏽 We can do it together💪🏽
