Sometimes you just have to take a break from your structured schedule and enjoy life; for me, today is one of those days! So here's to family, friends, sun, and cake (and probably some champagne too ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿ˜‰)! Happy Fourth of July to my fellow American ladies!! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ’™โค๏ธ

Can you ever NOT be happy about waking up and getting your (super sweaty) workout done before 7 AM (when it's over, that is ๐Ÿ˜‰)?! ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ I decided for the summer that I'd switch up my workouts and try some new things - so I signed up for a #flywheel membership and I'm combining the spin classes with #bodypump and random bbg sessions. I'm interested to see if the mix of workouts will get me over the plateau I hit recently! So far, I'm really enjoying how much these flywheel classes kick my ass ๐Ÿ˜

I'm in Charleston at the moment visiting my sister (and my new nephew! ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป), but I've been good about getting my workouts in! Luckily there's a gym in her apartment complex so I have no excuses ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

So I've been thinking about posting this #transformationtuesday for a couple weeks now, but kept getting cold feet. After putting some thought into it though, I figure I should celebrate how far I've come and not dwell on where I used to be. The picture on the left is from 2009 while I was on a high school exchange program in Belgium; the photo on the right was taken 2 weeks ago (after 52 weeks of bbg ๐Ÿ˜ฑ). During my year abroad, I gained about 35/40 lbs and felt very self-conscious about it. While I don't regret enjoying all of the amazing food and drinks (waffles, beer, and fries anyone? ๐Ÿ˜‹), I do wish I had balanced things out a little more ๐Ÿ˜…. Looking through fb, I realized I had very few full-body pictures because I untagged/deleted any pics where I didn't like what I saw. It took about 3 full years after returning home to finally get back to my pre-exchange weight. Between that time and just before starting bbg, my weight yo-yoed quite a bit. I'm grateful that I've now found a great workout and health routine to stick with, while still getting my balance on from time to time ๐Ÿ˜‰
So here's to the past that shaped us (sometimes literally ๐Ÿ˜œ) and here's to the journey forward ๐Ÿฅ‚(oh and also, here's to never dressing like the left pic again... 2009 was a rough time ๐Ÿ˜‚)

Made it to the gym this morning, despite the fact that I can still barely move my legs from week 11 legs on Monday ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ˜ณ The thought of doing squats during arms resistance made me want to cry though ๐Ÿ˜‚ so I decided to do stretching, LISS and some weighted arm exercises instead. I think I might start to incorporate weight lifting on my LISS days to boost my muscle definition. For others who lift weights along with bbg- what days/how do you incorporate that into the program?

I'm working from home today because of the "snow" โ„๏ธ (sort of laughing to myself that a couple of inches in DC means closures and cancellations ๐Ÿ˜„), so I'm currently enjoying a smoothie before a nice LISS session later! Hope everybody up north is staying warm!
