7 minute flow feat. 2 fat wiener dogs. Can you tell how tight my hamstrings are? It's not super pretty and it's the first time I've 100% made my own flow (short and sweet)! What's your favorite way to reconnect to your goals??

About me: I'm 5'5ish (167cm) and weigh 160-163 pounds (72kg). I've got a lot of muscle and it ain't that lean right now πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈI used to be a competitive swimmer and weighed in at around 137-147lbs in race season to off-season. The transition to the swammer life has been really challenging for me, I definitely found my identity in swimming and felt very lost for a long time. Recently, I've been trying to rebuild my life and find my new path (it's freaking hard!) I've only lost about 1-2 pounds since starting BBG and I really wanted to be closer to my goal by now (week 11) but I've definitely felt the comfort of having a workout routine again. Slowly but surely we make progress

Pistachio milk latte!! I made my own too, I'm super excited about it haha I'm allergic to almonds so I'm super annoyed with this mega almond trend... why do almonds have to be in everything now days?? πŸ™„

Recipe: 1 cup of pistachios + 4 cups of water --> blend the crap out of it and then smash it thru a cheesecloth and πŸ’₯ pistachio milk! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Comparison is the thief of joy β˜€οΈπŸ˜” Who else gets caught up in the highlight reels?? I'm always hoping I'll look great in my photos and I'm disappointed when I see the awkwardness. I don't have that sexy smize (smile with your eyes #tryabanks) or those cute poses. I usually just freeze up around a camera. Every picture I see I pick apart the things I hate (usually my arms πŸ’ͺ🏼). Focusing more on self-love and less on comparison this week. What's your goal this week?

I really wanted to get a photo of my splits progression (I know it ain't pretty πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ) and I got this photo hahaha! One day! Also I don't think anyone should ever match their socks

Up in Washington visiting family so I haven't done any workouts this week 😱 I did manage to get a yoga practice in this morning but no bbg... anyone have any tips for achey knees from running and probably squats?? I've checked my form with several coaches and it's great, just needing some extra rehab I guess... any tips are welcome!!

How great does it feel when a random stranger gives you a genuine compliment?? Nothing to gain on their part just recognizing something beautiful πŸ’›I think a good goal is to give a random compliment to one stranger every day β˜ΊοΈβ˜€οΈ

Who loves avocado toast?? Avocado toast is clearly the reason I don't own a house yet... not my crippling student debt πŸ™„ topped with the pickled red onions I made last night and a side of fresh figs πŸ₯‘#nationalavocadoday

My crow is flying πŸ€— finding new balance and strength for arm balances! Totally see all those bbg arm and ab workouts paying off! Not perfection but progress

What's your lunch?? Mine was black bean quinoa patties with creamy lime cilantro avocado dressing! I topped it with fresh grape tomatoes and crumbled goat cheese, I just love the creamy tanginess that goat cheese gives πŸ™ŒπŸΌ .

Recipe from Trader Joe's Organic Tricolored Quinoa bag πŸ˜‚ I didn't fry them, I baked them! Definitely recommend!

Stoked!! Actually I started the day with a huge disappointment, another job rejection... I can't seem to catch a break with my job search. I wanted to cry, so I went for a "long" run (3.5miles) and still wasn't feeling it so I went to a yoga class. I walked in and instantly knew I was out of place, talk about the yoga elites... but being in that class was just what I needed, it made me try poses I had never tried and guess what?? I did it! Was I uncomfortable? Yes. Was I awkward? Yes. But I did it. I'm not perfect but I'm so excited I tried and look I did something new today! #nomakeup

πŸ“Ώ Setting intentions. I have such a hard time keeping my sights set on my intentions past my yoga mat. So yesterday I made my own mala necklace! So happy with how it turned out! I chose lava stones and jasper beads for strength, grounding and balance. Hopefully they'll help me focus. What are your intentions for the week??
