Little bit of a #motivationmonday because I am in need! And maybe you are too ❤️ On the left in the first photo I have no idea what I weighed, as I avoided scales like the plague and didn't look at the numbers when my doctor weighed me and then scolded me about the result. My first recorded weight was May 9, 2013 at 335, so I am assuming this photo is around the same weight, I'm really not sure. This would have been in about 2012 when I worked at a plus sized clothing store. Tried to get as close to the same angle as I could. Like I said, I don't recall what I weighed, but I do remember that that shirt was a 4XL. I hated that thing SO much and only bought it for an event at work, hence the goofy bow tie. Literally never wore it again 😂 Recently I have been finding it VERY difficult to see any changes in my body, but yesterday my best friend in the whole wide world sent me a photo of her side by side and I was blown away. She said that I needed a side by side to really see it, and I'm glad I did it cause whoa! How did I live like that? I still have a ways to go to get to where I want to be but I'm more than willing to do the work to get there. Cheers to a good week folks! 😎 #monslay#thenandnow#bridetobe#healthyhabits#overeating#foodaddiction#lowcarb#weightloss#goaldigger#food#keto#macros#myfitnesspal#fitfam#accountability#beastmode#intermittentfasting#obesetobeast#progress#healthy#fitnessjourney#weightlossjourney
Your mind is an amazing thing when you fill it with positive thoughts. Your life will start to change. Here are three tips to help:
1️⃣ START THE DAY WITH POSITIVE AFFIRMATION. How you start each day will set the tone for the rest of the day.
2️⃣ FOCUS ON THE GOOD THINGS.
Invariably, you’re going to encounter obstacles throughout the day — there is no such thing as a perfect day. When you encounter challenges, focus on the benefits no matter how trivial it may seem.
3️⃣ FIND HUMOR IN BAD SITUATIONS. Allow yourself to experience humor in even the darkest situations. Remember, it will make for a great story later! #motivationmonday
Getting my fitness on this Monday. Really want to push myself harder now to get back into shape. I've been doing my walks for a while now and those have really helped. Now it's time to really push and challenge myself.
ONE MORE WEEK.
That's it, just one more week to decide whether you are going to live the way you have always lived or live the way you have always wanted to.
My pre-christmas 8 week challenge is upon us. Instead of slogging your way through the holiday's this year trying to stay on track by yourself, you will be part of a group who is going to support you.
This holiday season you will not only not gain weight, but you will lose that weight that you are resolving to lose the first of the year.
You don't have to miss family occasions. You don't have to give up Thanksgiving dinner. You can still go to all the parties. AND HIT YOUR GOALS.
How freaking awesome does that sound?
This challenge is for you if: -You are sick of making new year's resolutions that never end up happening. -You are tired of feeling so tired and energetic all the time. -You are tired of your holiday clothes from last season being too tight. - You want to be part of a group that lifts each other up instead of putting each other down. -You have tried it all and feel there is nothing that will work. - You want a sustainable lifestyle change you can use forever. -You need accountability to reach your goals. -You don't know where to start to reach your goals. -You want to LEARN and not just BE TOLD. - You are ready to change, ready to work hard.
This challenge is not another $10 challenge that will leave you with disappointment and zero results.
This challenge is not a quick fix that will do the work for you.
This challenge IS a system that will support you, keep you accountable, and help you lead a healthier life.
This challenge is open to all, but I only have 3 spots!! If you are ready to change your life and be a part of an incredible group, shoot me a DM, comment below, or shoot me and email firstname.lastname@example.org I will send you the application to sign up.
If you know of a friend, cousin, sister, mom, daughter, or anyone else that you want to join you on this journey, tag them below!
P.S. This is no one-on-one coaching. If that is what you are looking for, please shoot me a DM!
The downfall of most calorie trackers: They mentally prioritise their DAILY calorie and macro count too much, and eventually 'fall off the wagon' because they find it too tough to get it spot on. Here's the average of my macros for the last seven days. Pretty proud of myself at how accurate I've managed to keep it! I'm posting this to show my clients (online and in person) that it isn't impossible to meet your calorie and macronutrient targets, with a little prep and organisation. (I know it's a headache but it's a necessary evil) A common misconception is that your body kind of.. 'resets' every day and you have to get in your macros perfect again the next day like some kind of robot. That's not the case. If you go over on your carbs on Monday and Tuesday, it's not the end of the world, just be sure to be under on your carbs on Wednesday and Thursday. Your daily calorie and macro consumption is important, your weekly is even more important, and your monthly more important still!.. you get the message. Consistency is key, but don't lose sleep over messing up a day or two. If you have any questions about my personal calories/macros and why I have them how I do right now, drop me a message and I'd be happy to answer any questions. •
