I appreciate my highlighter for sticking with me through my leg day yesterday ✨ I don't appreciate my body not fucking responding to me trying to cut.
-
This shit can be so damn frustrating and discouraging sometimes. I decided to officially start cutting about 2 weeks before I left for vacation. While on vacation I obviously didn't track but I also tried not to go buck wild. I was a little bloated when I got back. Then the next week I started my period🙄
-
So now that I'm off it, I expected to be back to normal and not so bloated. HA BITCH YOU THOUGHT. @ body why the fuck are you doing this to me. I feel so good after cardio, I'm sticking to my macros, and I'm training hard.
-
I know this is a process and I'm the first one to always say "be patient". But FUCK MAN it's frustrating!! I know I have to give it time. And I will. I'm just frustrated with how bloated I am this week.
-
I'll be good though. It's just an off week. Gonna keep truckin along 🚚

Stop apologizing for being "MIA"/not posting frequently on social media. I'm not saying this to be rude or insult anyone who says this, so just listen to me.
-
When you apologize for being MIA, you're apologizing for living your life. You're apologizing for having other things to do like work, socialize, and have fun. You're apologizing for not giving SOCIAL MEDIA your time.
-
Stop that. Live your life. Stop worrying about engagement and likes and comments. Live your freaking life. You don't have to apologize to ANYONE for that. If people really care when you don't post 1, 2, 3 times a day then they can fuck right off. That's their problem lol.
-
This generation is so consumed in technology, we're going to let it consume us pretty soon. Let's quit that shit. Post what you want, but still have a life that you enjoy.

Date night with babe 👫 asked him to take pictures of me and he says "oh is this why you brought me?"
Yeah Mario I planned on coming by myself but then I wouldn't have anyone to take pictures of me, so here you are 🤦🏽‍♀️🙄

Take me back to Aruba 😭 can't wait for this winters vacation and even more beautiful pics 😍💙I think about it every damn day. If I could get paid to travel, I'd do it in a heartbeat.
-
PS this was a live picture that I turned into a video, which I am now obsessed with bc I didn't know there was apps to do this!!!! Expect many more in the future 😇

Soooo I've wanted to do a cute fitness/whatever photoshoot since before last summer. I told myself I would do one before I even made my website. But every time I would start thinking about actually doing it, i'd convince myself that I didn't look good enough to do one yet.
-
I feel like I'm the only "fitspo" that has never done a photoshoot (blegh at the word "fitspo" bc I'm just a normal person). Not that it matters what other people have done, but it makes me mad that I've literally been down on myself for this fucking long and STILL HAVE YET TO DO ONE.
-
So I'm finally saying fuck it, and giving myself a deadline of October. (I love fall and I want some outside pics along with gym pics😍) Yes I'd be fine with doing one right now, but personally I want to give myself a goal to meet. I want to get a little leaner and look a little better. I want to push myself to do this.
-
I know this isn't a big deal to most because "It's just some pictures Leah what're you so worried about". But it's a big deal to me bc this is something I've wanted to do for a long time, and I've always let my insecurities ruin that for me. Not anymore👋🏽
-
Just gotta start looking into photographers now and see if I can find a gym to shoot at 😅

"It's not who you are that holds you back. It's who you think you're not."
-
Read that. Then read it again. Think about it. Are you TRULY doing everything you can to get where/what you want? Or are you doubting yourself and holding yourself back?
-
I read this quote and it hit me in the face. I'm the prime example of doubting myself and not seeing what others see in me. But I'm working on that. Because hello BITCH IM FRICKEN GREAT 💁🏽
-
Believe in yo damn self. If you don't believe in yourself, how do you expect anyone else to???

Posted this on my story yesterday so I figured I'd post it here too, that way it'll come up on my timehop next year 🤗
-
These pics are two years apart to the day. In 2015 I was about a year and a half into lifting. I still didn't eat very much. I was always concerned about being skinny. Yet I wanted to grow a big booty but didn't wanna eat more 😂🙄I actually thought I looked "fat" this day hahahaha OK LEAH. Look at them teeny twig arms.
-
I remember finally being able to do the 80lb bar in hip thrusts and I was so proud of myself. It was so heavy! Now, I can do 255+ for reps🤷🏽‍♀️
-
This isn't even just about the weight I'm moving/weight I've gained. I've come so far mentally (and physically) since then. I have so much more knowledge than I used to, and I'm still constantly researching and learning things.
-
This is a long process. It doesn't happen overnight and you won't see progress instantly. But stick to it, and you will. We'll see where I am another 2 years from now 😈

Legssss last night 💁🏽
-
I haven't done box squats in 5ever and lemme tell ya, my legs were fuckin shaking. If my gym had lower benches I probably would have fallen over and not been able to get back up 🙂
-
I'll be posting some videos on my video account in a little bit!! Follow if you aren't already! @leahjfitnessvideos 🔌

Today's workout was hard af not gonna lie 😅 my cramps are awful, energy was lowwww, and I'm so bloated it's painful. But I done did it. You're not always gonna have a great workout and the best motivation. That's life though 🤷🏽‍♀️ I got goals to meet bitchez 🤙🏽

DISCLAIMER: this is MY personal experience with birth control. Every time I say that I'm not on birth control, I get a lot of questions asking why I don't get back on instead of dealing with my terrible periods. So let's talk.
-
When I was about 16 I got prescribed to it because my periods were so bad. I never thought anything of it, because it's so common. Plus my doctor gave me the lowest dose which made me think I'd be completely fine, and I was for a while. I never gained weight like they said I might and i really didn't have any side affects from it.
-
Fast forward 6 years when I was 22. My skin randomly started breaking out terribly. I could NOT get it under control. The derm prescribed me to 82837 things and I was on the verge of trying acutane. My stomach problems were beginning to get unbearable. My GI doc couldn't figure anything out. Me and @kailaodren were having the same problems at the time and constantly talked about it and cried to each other. We were so frustrated with everything. She started researching, and thought maybe it was our birth control that could be causing it. We both stopped taking it at the same time, despite my doctors telling me not to and saying it'll make my skin worse.
-
A month later, my skin began clearing up. My stomach problems lessened. They weren't completely gone bc I still struggle with these. But WOW MY SKIN!!!! I finally wasn't embarrassed to leave the house anymore!
-
Here are some things that you may not have known about birth control:
-
1: It can contribute to nutrient deficiencies. Iron and magnesium deficiencies are seen quite often which can contribute to gut problems and many other things.
2: It can cause or worsen candida. If you don't know what that is, look it up. It's freaking awful. I know because I watched my best friend deal with the worst of it for over a year.
3: Causes moodiness or depression. What?? Isn't it supposed to help that?? Not so much.
4: Increased risk of blood clots.
-
I think my body started rejecting it after being on it for so long. You're basically pumping artificial hormones into your body, and tricking it into thinking your pregnant. PLEASE RESEARCH THINGS BEFORE YOU TAKE THEM.

Good morning and happy Monday ☀️ I'm gonna word vomit at you for a min. Being on social media there's a lot of pressure to be "good". Pressure to post good pics, good content, write good captions, have good engagement/followers. Well here's a reality check: none of that shit will matter in 10 years.
-
Your worth is not based on how many followers you have. How many people comment on your pics. Your follower to like ratio. It doesn't mean shit.
-
Instagram isn't paying my bills. You wanna pay my bills for me? Feel free. But this shit doesn't. Yes I train online bc I love helping people, but that's not my income. I have a full time job that I love, and don't always have time to be present on social media and make sure I'm posting "good content". I post things that I WANT TO because it's my account. If someone doesn't like what I post, don't follow me lol. Nobody's forcing you to do so.
-
Social media is great for many reasons, but don't revolve your life around it. It's a great marketing tool for me because obviously I can show my knowledge to train people and what not. It's also great because I've met so many wonderful people from it 💕
-
All I'm saying is y'all should be more worried about your real life, opposed to life on social media. Be present. Better yourself. Move up in your job. Have fun and do things that excite you. Those are things that are important and going to benefit your life in the long run.

I've tagged some of my favorite people, just bc I love and appreciate them❤️it only lets me tag 20 people though ☹️ so many more that I wanted to tag.

“Train your mind to see the good in everything. Positivity is a choice. The happiness of our life depends on the quality of your thoughts.”
-
This is so important. It’s so easy to look at the stressful/negative things in life and focus on those, instead of all the positive things. Someone could do 1000 nice things for you, but you will always remember the ONE time they did you wrong.
-
Why is that? Why do we choose to focus on the negative? Because that’s what sticks in our memory. That’s what hurts us and stresses us out. Those things sting, they’re uncomfortable, they suck.
-
Did you know it’s possible to change that way of thinking? Life is short. Choose to be happy. Choose not to let everything bother you. Brush it off. I know this is easier said than done, trust me. It’s hard to get out of your own thoughts. But next time something bad happens to you, think of all the blessings you have. Think of everything that makes you happy. Think of how great your life is. Focus on that.
-
This is not to say that you’re not allowed to be upset about things or be stressed. That’s human nature, we have emotions. But don’t let it ruin your day/week/month. Move on.
-
When you change your mindset, your life will be come a thousand times better. I can attest to that 🤗
