Not pictured: the absolute melt down I had last night trying to get dressed to go out. I flew into PA early yesterday afternoon. Immediately grabbed my things, the rental, hit the grocery store and came home to change. I was already tired, and cranky about having to come back east AGAIN and on such short notice. On top of that I went off birth control a week ago so my body is trying to recalibrate. Add all that up, cue melt down. Nothing fit. I felt FAT. I wanted to cry. I looked in the mirror and tugged at my clothing wondering what the hell has happened to my body. I almost bailed on hanging out with my friends because I felt FAT. How ridiculous is that? I inevitably picked myself up by the boot straps and made my way over there. Once I was there I had forgotten my mini melt down. Today itโ€™s like I have a new body, or new eyes, because Iโ€™m not seeing the same person I did last night.
So why am I telling you all this? Because PERCEPTION IS REALITY. Did I lose a bunch of weight overnight? Uh nope. Did my attitude change? Uh yup.
So next time you find yourself in that negative self talk, try to talk yourself out of it. Try to say kind things to yourself, and youโ€™d be amazed at how your body responses, because friends, your body HEARS YOU. โ™ฅ๏ธ #selflove #selftalk #positive #positivity #loveyourself #bekind #bekindtoyourself #loveyou #perception #perceptionisreality

Happy Friday Junior!

Had a great leg day this morning. Itโ€™s the first time in a couple weeks Iโ€™ve been able to get through the whole thing in one session, AND I upped my weights! #winning

Happy Monday!
Kicking off the week with a little shoulder workout. I was able to bump up my weights on a couple exercises, so Iโ€™m pretty pumped about that. Gotta focus on those #nsvs !

Do you have any #nsvs this week?

I woke up feeling SUPER down today. I started on Nexplanon a few months ago and have been miserable ever since. Thursday I had it removed, but my body is still adjusting so itโ€™s been a little bit of an emotional roller coast for me lately.

Between being down, and the weather being rainy and gross here today I had no desire to do anything today, but I had signed up for a @cyclebar class so I begrudgingly went.

Boy am I glad I did! I feel SO much better after a good sweat. While exercise doesnโ€™t always fix my mood, it certainly never hurts.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday kids! Go Pats!

Finally finished leg day from two days ago ๐Ÿ˜ณ I donโ€™t know why this particular program I canโ€™t seem to get through leg day in one session. The second half took me 45 min today!! I may have to start intentionally breaking it up until I get stronger ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ #girlswholift #legday #friyay #newyearstrongerme #musclebuilding #liftheavy #strongereveryday #curvy #curvyfit

Forgot to set my alarm this morning and overslept by an hour ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Still squeezed in a quick hiit workout though! Remember, something is always better than nothing!! #hiit #liift4 #legs #noexcuses #newyearstrongerme #somethingisbetterthannothing #strongereveryday

Finished the second half of my leg day from Friday. Was hoping to get to shoulders but still feeling really off. Not sure whatโ€™s going on with my body but hoping this passes soon... #legday #girlswholift #feelingoutofit #lifting #musclebuilding #strongissexy #newyearstrongerme #justshowup #somethingisbetterthannothing

Some days you donโ€™t feel motivated to work out but once you start you get that momentum and youโ€™re good. Other days you start and you just canโ€™t finish. Today was one of those days. I got about half way through and I started to get light headed and knew if I pushed any further Iโ€™d probably injure myself.
Every day is different. Youโ€™re not always going to be able to push as hard as yesterday. All you can do, is try your best every day.

Had to be at work at 6:30 this morning, so decided to break up my lifting with a quick 20min hiit session.
