This is somewhere between 75 and 82 pounds lost, depending on which number on the scale I want to believe this week. (For obvious reasons, I like the bigger number more.) I want to lose another 40 minimum, but another 65 would probably be best. I tend to post about workouts and what I have already accomplished because what I have left to go seems so daunting.
I don't generally post full body pictures. I have far more confidence in my ability to put on winged eyeliner than in any of the rest of me. However, this middle stage is part of the journey too.
Back to the kettlebells tomorrow. I like it a lot more when the numbers on those go up. 💪
🏋🏽♀️🏋🏼Starting out is probably the hardest part of your fitness journey. If you really want to stick to it, you have to do it the right way.
1️⃣ Set up a goal – Do you want to lose weight, gain muscle, or just lead healthier lifestyle overall? How do you want to look and is fitness something you want to do professionally, or for recreation? How many days a week can you train while incorporating fitness into your lifestyle? All of those are important. You don’t want to set the bar to high, but learn to have rational expectations. Also, if you haven’t been working out at all, and if you’ve been eating junk for many years, you are more likely to quit if you immediately start going to the gym six days a week and change your diet completely.
2️⃣ Create a training plan – As I already said, you have to incorporate fitness into your lifestyle. If you try to change drastically overnight, chances are you are going to quit and return to your own habits. If you are just starting out, I would suggest doing full body workout split three times a week. You can download free workout plan on my website (link in bio).
3️⃣ Set up diet plan – Of course, it is very important to track your nutrition. You have probably heard that abs are made in the kitchen, and that the key to good looking, healthy body is 30% in working out and 70% in nutrition. You don’t have to completely stop eating everything you’ve been eating, but try to incorporate healthy food into your diet. Try to add as much of whole foods into your diet as possible and keep track of your meals. The easiest way to do so is with the help of apps like MyFitnessPal, where you can enter your info and goals, and the app will do the rest for you.
4️⃣ Trust the process - Be consistent with your workouts, and more importantly - be patient. You can’t fix your body overnight if you’ve been eating unhealthy for years and if you haven’t been working out. Be proud of your small victories, and it is going to be worth it.
A foto está escura mas estou chorando nesse kare vegano que acabei de fazer. Para substituir a batata do curry original eu coloquei brocolis. Eu vou comer ele puro, mas fica maravilhoso com arroz . Eu adaptei a receita do #presuntovegetariano 🍛🍛🍛
Fish swim, birds fly, and Mikala sucks at making pancakes.
Always have, always will.
So I made Keto pancakes this morning. I know, I know, I've preached up and down that keto baking is a mistake. BUT these were freakin phenomenal!!!
I will say this though, we should really call them keto French toast 🤷🏼♀️ because that's exactly the taste you get with the amount of egg in them. Still good though!

💥THE SIX HABITS OF SUCCESSFUL DIETERS 💥
The sciency mumbo-jumbo behind losing fat is pretty straight forward. Structure your diet and exercise in a way that creates a calorie deficit and BOOM! Weight Loss.
However, there’s a whale 🐳 of a difference between knowing how to lose weight and actually putting knowledge into practice... and that's where most folks screw up big time!
Most people know the truth about losing weight.
They know they need to eat fewer calories.
They know they need to eat more whole foods.
They know they need to exercise more.
Problem is, none of those things are sexy or exciting…
You know what is, though? A motha-flippin’ 28-Day Juice Fast! Or a 60-Day Low-Carb, Low-Fat, Low-Protein Lime & Lemon Juice Chugging Fast! (... okay, might have made that one up 😉)
But you get the point. When folks get motivated to lose weight, they want results NOW, which often leads to making unrealistic and unsustainable changes to their diet & exercise plan that ultimately fail them...
The Successful Dieter is different ✅
The successful dieter knows it’s not about speed or going to the extremes. Rather, it’s about having patience and creating habits that last forever.
There are lots of great habits to develop, but these six are by far the most common ones I see successful dieters using. Reason being, they’re easy to implement and make dieting simpler.
And if there’s one thing I know to be true for losing weight, the simpler you can make your diet and exercise plan, the more likely you are to be successful in the long run 💪
Do you know any good habits that could make this list? Let me know down below ⤵️
. . .
Are you daring enough to give this a go? Comment YES if you are!
Here’s a great way to finish off a weights session to help improve your cardiovascular fitness and maybe burn a few extra calories.
Since it doesn’t require equipment you can do this anytime and anywhere. How about that?
So if you’re short on time and you just want to get moving then do this. Just in case you don’t understand, you do both exercises back to back for 10 reps, then for 9, 8, 7, and so on till you reach 1. Rest as little as possible.
Record how long it takes you to finish and try and beat your time the next time you do this. You want to get fitter don’t you?
Seems like a simple concept, right? @cartergood •
No one expects to be fluent in a foreign language after one class, or be able to execute a perfect ollie the first time stepping on a skateboard...
But for some reason, we seem to think there's a "quick-fix" for losing weight? 🤷♂️
Its not entirely our fault. Fitness marketers know all about our desire for easy fixes, so they sell us "10-Day Fat-Burning Detoxes" and "28-Day Fixes" to satisfy...
And the thing is, most people know it's all a load of barnacles🙄. They know losing weight takes time because *gaining it* took time!
Think about it 🤔 - no one wakes up one day suddenly overweight... they just finally realize it 💡. In reality, the whole process of gaining happens over the course of months and years 📆
So with all that said, you have one of two choices ✌️you can make:
1️⃣ continue buying shitty detox drinks and following unsustainable diets that, deep down, you know aren't going to work...
Or, 2️⃣ suck it up and accept the TRUTH ✅, which is that every fitness goal — losing weight, building muscle, and improving your overall health — is going to take TIME ⏰
What's more, focus on making changes that you enjoy and can see yourself doing for the rest of your life 👴👍
There are no shortcuts or quick-fixes. There's just hard work and patience 💪💦
