A little #humpday transformation motivation for ya! A friend of mine saw my before photo and thought I had 2 strings/straps on my bikini. Nope...that was just an extra crease from my roll of fat ๐Ÿ˜…. *

Day by day, little by little, small changes turn in to big ones. Keep at it!

Sometimes, to others, your efforts may seem unconventional or extreme or unnecessary. But that's ok. Whether they're stated or not, your plans are in progress and will be actualized. Keep doin' you.

A lot can happen in 4 weeks... ๐Ÿ˜‰

My life is about breaking MY own limits and outgrowing myself to live MY best life. I'm not in competition with anyone else.

What a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives hasn't happened yet. Live for today and be excited and encouraged that tomorrow will be even better.

After I won the @bodybuildingcom #250kchallenge, I found myself dwelling on that past success. Now don't get me wrong, that competition has forever played a huge part in my life. It has forever changed me & I'm so grateful. But, deep down, I knew I was uncomfortable with looking at that achievement and feeling like there was nothing else but the past. I knew (and I know now) that I am much more than just the 2016 "transformation challenge winner". Yea, I lost some weight. But the real win has been learning from the mistakes I made after the challenge was over and my ability to pick up the pieces to become better. Today, I weigh the same as I did at the end of the 2016 challenge. I almost doubted I'd ever see that number again. But now, that number doesn't really matter. I'm stronger now. I'm tighter. I'm so much more mentally prepared and able to continue my goal of staying consistent. My mission is to find MY definition of true overall health and wellness, attain it and maintain it. That's a tall order! But I've noticed that, these small achievements in between, are allowing me to become more and more acquainted with myself. I love the saying, "To achieve something you've never achieved, you must become someone you've never been". I truly believe that's happening.

It's easy to get comfortable & settle for small progress. But what's usually worth it, isn't usually easy. Go for what you really want. Don't stop.

Make YOU a priority! Start your day with your goals in mind. Make time and get it done!

My day starts at around 3am (give or take) EVERYDAY! It's important for me to get my workout done BEFORE the boys wake up. Things can be so unpredictable with little ones! This leaves me with no excuses to take care of my daily goals. Find the time for yourself. Make YOU a priority!

I'm excited about finally having the guts to do the things I want to do. I've wasted a lot of time worrying about the who, what, where and why's of things. It's time to just go for it!

We tend to get so caught up trying to get everything just right before we work towards a goal. But often times, things will never be "just right". Take action today and DO the thing you want to do. It's simpke and it's the best way to getting it done. ๐Ÿ˜‰

UPDATE...This IG story has expired. I still encourage you to check out the Netflix documentary "What the health?" It's an eye opener. *

This documentary on Netflix "What the health" is spreading around like wildflowers right now. And I think for good reason. It deserves some attention. Even if it's just to get a new (or refreshed) perspective. Knowledge is power. You never know who may benefit from this information.
