"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities." { Dr. Seuss } x Thank you so much guys for giving me a party and making my simple fantasy of being surrounded by balloons a reality. Hahaha. #30isfabulous

That was HARD! Not gonna lie, taking time off and trying to get back into the workout is not FUN! πŸ˜•
.
.
But I did it and I’m hoping it’ll get easier each time! πŸ’ͺ🏾

Back day makes me happy. I can now successfully do 5 full dead hang pull ups! No filter. Pure strength.
LOVE what is happening to my body lately! This off season is going to rock. The package I bring in 2017 will be killer. .

So far turning 30 has been fabulous!! Best card picked out by @joeydied Have been so spoiled this year 😍 🎁 #30isthenew20 #30isfabulous #birthdayweekender #bringonthenext50years #birthdaylove #goldjumpsuitsrock #gingerhairdontcare #sillypost #birthdaygratitude

Gosh, it’s been a minute but felt so good to sweat it out this AM! Had to pick it up slow with my weights but got through strength and cardio workout like a champ! .
.
Now out for an adventure with my main squeeze!

Thank you @j.schwabs !! Loved my Dirty 30 photo shoot last weekend!!!!β€πŸ“· Thank you @prbyjasminmurie for the delicious cake !!πŸŽ‚
😍😍😍😍😍😍 #dirtythirty #30 #smashcake #Libra #enthusiasm #30isfabulous

Guess who's back!!? My last workout was exactly a week ago and I am itching to move my body!
.
.
.
Let's just say my nutrition hasn't been THE BEST but I have ZERO regrets! I had the most amazing time this past weekend during our wedding celebration and that meant indulging in libations and sweets! .
.
.
My muscles will definitely feel this workout tonight but before I go, I make sure to fuel my body with the healthiest shake I know! .
.
.
Let's get it in TGIF!

Not too sure if we'll get a workout in today as we make our way to VA for the wedding! .
.
.
So I made every opportunity count! I ran 1.5 miles to my hair appointment and while I'm getting my hair deep conditioned, working on my lower abs with core stab exercises! 😝
.
.
I do me!

I get when people say they are busy. Trying to juggle so many things like family, work, chores, a side hustle, eating, taking care of yourself and maintaining some type of sanity along the wayπŸ™ƒ

It’s a balancing act. Some days your better than it than others. That’s okay. I know for myself I can have a difficult time when my regular routine gets off track. But it doesn’t define who I am or what my goals are. I just readjust and do what works for me in the meantime that feels good.
Right now what feels good is writing out everything that I need to accomplish today and enjoying this bar before my next meeting because it may go longer than planned ✌🏼

All smiles even in this pouring rain! Chest and triceps workout completed and now headed back home to continue with last minute wedding prep! How in the world is it coming up to 5 days left?!?! 😳

This photo's message: "don't mess with women who lift.....OR for ANY women for that matter!"
.
.
.
We are strong! ✊🏾

Before leaving the house to meet his client, Oleg told me it's a beautiful day for a run! So instead of the gym, i decided to take my workout on the dining trail! 3 miles done (even though I got outside later than I wanted too)!

I seriously have to work on my selfie stance!! πŸ˜“
.
.
.
I'm over here hanging out like Charlie Chaplin!! 🀣 (geez)
.
.
At least I can check off Glutes and triceps for this Friday's agenda! Now back to our regularly scheduled wedding program (aka, last minute hustle)

I CANNOT believe I'm down to single digits until our WEDDING! These past few months have flown by so fast. .
.
.
If you'd have told me in the summer that I'd be able to shed 20lbs and tone up by the wedding, I would have given you a side eye πŸ˜’
.
.
.
But here I am, 9 days till the "I do's", 20lbs lighter, helluva lot stronger and 110% prouda myself!
.
.
.
The guidance is key and @a.team.fitness has been with me every step of this journey! I am forever grateful! πŸ™πŸΎ
.
.
.
Workout #1 in the books, now to get ready to pick up my beautiful wedding gown! Eeeeeeeeh! Sh*t is getting real!

Preworkout shake before my 1st workout today! Incorporating 2 a days for a bit when my schedule allows me to afford it!

Back and bicep plus cardio!
.
.
.
Hoping for another cardio sesh this evening

All the food that I want to eat.....in pillow form! Can't wait to start my flexible eating after the wedding! Won't be strict with my diet but will keep up with 80% of whole clean foods with a side of naughty 😈

Tryin' to mean mug with a cute Snapchat filter....yea doesn't really work.....
.
But you know what works?!?! Consistency with fitness and nutrition. I haven't been 100% lately with either working out or my diet but thanks to the previous 4 months of building a steady foundation, as soon as I eat right and push my body, it rewards me with endorphins and energy rather than zap me dry! πŸ˜“
.
I'll be needing this extra energy as I don last minute preparation for our wedding in TWELVE DAYS!! What the?!?!? .
Now to prepare music selections to send to our DJ. Am I late in the game or this is normal to wait this long to figure out the specific music selection for part of the ceremony and reception! I dunno?!? I've never been married before! πŸ˜‰πŸ€”πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

Me really not feeling today's leg day. I'm tired, cranky and just want to eat a lot of food!
.
It not always rainbow and butterflies when our comes to fitness and dieting. .
I've been surrounded by trigger foods that I just want to devour. I LOVE FOOD! eating clean for the past 5 months have made me feel really good BUT somedays a girl wants to eat a dang DONUT! Just keeping it real

TGIF! Here's to my shoulders coming out to play during my arm workout! Herrrrooo! πŸ™ŒπŸΎ

I am SO SO SO happy to have my fine ladies (and my godson) with me for my final dress fitting. I have THE BEST crew! .
.
.
I didn't want to take my gown off because it was just so GORGEOUS! My seamstress is like my fairy godmother!!!
.
.
.
Welp, I have to endure 2.5 more weeks until I get to wear it again but until then, I work out!
.
.
.
ZUMBA TIME!!!

AM workout before my local beauties (aka my bride squad) come over to accompany me for my FINAL dress fitting! 😳
.
.
.
How did time fly by so fast?!?? Triceps and Glutes will be torched today!

Welp, no gymbo for me today! What was supposed to be a 20 min nap turned into 2 hour snooze fest! Then it took me a good amount of time to get up and feeling like a productive human again! .
.
.
I didn't want to rush and be frazzled at the gym so instead I'll be doing my on demand home workout programs. Since there's so many to choose from, now the real question is....which one I should pick?! πŸ€”

Got my cardio in the AM at the 10k so just finished chest and triceps at the gym. .
.
.
Currently doing high reps low weights and the tendency is to move fast through the motions when light or no weights are involved. BUT if you still want to engage the appropriate muscles (and of course that's the YES!), focus on that specific muscle group and move slowly. You'll still get a mini burn! πŸ˜‰

@cbaker211 and I just finished the 10k!! Woohoo! And apparently the Snapchat filter stopped registering my face! πŸ˜‚

Don't get me wrong....I love running races. .
.
.
But who else despises the early wake up call to get to the start?!?! I'm like the waking dead this AM.
.
.
.
Good luck to all the runners today! MCM

Who else looks in the mirror and go straight to their flaws or what can still be improved on?? πŸ™‹πŸΎ The first picture was taken in May of this year right after I purchased my bridal gown and when I committed to get in the best shape for the wedding. Let's just say I had nothing nice to say about myself then. And let's be clear, there's no self hate here. I just knew I had more potential and was frustrated with my self sabotaging behaviors (eat a whole pie of pizza....SURE!). I'm no stranger to fitness. I've always been active in sports. But in my twenties, I had zero guidance and shredded down to a low 125lbs (I'm 5'5" but pretty muscular). Back then, I was so obsessed with the scale and to reduce my weight, I unhealthily reduced my calories while going balls hard at the gym (2hrs was a norm). I lost my shape. No butt even though I played volleyball all through HS and college and went down to a size 4!! At the time, I probably thought I was hot stuff but was hungry ALL THE TIME! Needless to say, once I stopped that diet, I rebounded. Ugh ugh ugh.

Now let's fast forward to the after picture. I took this photo today after my workout. With the incredible guidance from my coach @a.team.fitness, I'm cycling carbs up until the wedding to tone/shred, but this period is only a minimal phase in the 5 month journey I've been on. During the first 4 months, I felt that I was eating more than I have been prior to connecting with her. The difference was the type of foods and the ratio I was consuming. I was eating clean with occasional cheat meals (or in my case, cheat wknds!!) and giving my body what it needed to kick butt during the workouts but also to turn my body into a calorie/fat burning machine!

More importantly, I'm leaning out while protecting the muscles I worked hard to gain. I still have a booty (it's just less jiggly! πŸ‘) Continued below! πŸ‘‡πŸΎπŸ‘‡πŸΎ

@cbaker211,@thenewpappaz and I decided to sign up for the MCM 10k after running the Annapolis 10 this year. Originally, I was abstaining from running any races as I got closer to the wedding but I CANNOT not run with the marines. Especially since I committed that I will forever run my heart out and stay active in honor of WJB who at the end of his life was robbed of the ability to voluntarily move his body as Parkinson's took over. .
.

This is ALWAYS and FOREVER will be for you otouchan! β€οΈπŸ‘ΌπŸΎπŸ˜‡

And kickass MRE (marathon running essentials! Lol) from NFCU! Thank you @navyfederal .
.

Oh and since luck was on my side yesterday at the expo, I was able to sneak in 5 mins of massage and Johanna released my mid thoracic tightness, left QL and piriformis!! Yaaaas

Do something today to make yourself feel amazing. It doesn’t have to be anything crazy. Go for a walk in the sunshine. Paint your nails. Color a picture while jamming out to your favorite song. Sit in absolute silence and just appreciate what you have. Be freaking proud of yourself for something you have done or are going to accomplish!! I’m about to start my day with an amazing sweat session, get my hair done πŸ’πŸ» then some grocery shopping. It’s going to be an amazing weekend πŸ’ƒπŸ»

All champs start off with a balanced breakfast! -1 piece of Ezekiel wheat toast
-2 TBSP of avocado - 1 whole egg + 1/2 cup egg white scramble

Happy nom nom nom! 🍳πŸ₯šπŸžπŸ€€

Needed to sweat away some stress today. Something about low carbs, wedding planning and day to day stress combo had me frazzled today.
.
.
.
I'm just so happy that exercise is that outlet for me. Especially dancing and tonight I took a Zumba class and was just in the back doing my own thing trying to keep up with the class! πŸ˜‚ whatever works!!

Got my cardio and glut/triceps done today!! I love me some Zumba! I love to DANCE! πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ•ΊπŸΎπŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ•ΊπŸΎ

Day three of the 2 low carb/1 high carb day cycle. Let's just say that I was happy to have more carbs today. I love food! Nom nom nom.

Happy birthday to my twins what a wonderful surprise you were and are every day! My wish for you is the same as it was 30 years ago .. May you have good health happiness and prosperity always be true to yourself and live an unforgettable life... I love you both more than words can express!!!#twinsisters #oneproudmomof6 #30isfabulous #boboswatching#number2and3 #twinaandtwinb

Final phase of my training!! πŸ’ͺ🏾 I am sooooo proud of myself! .
.
.
I had some slip ups (the worse being last weekend during my bridal shower weekend) but I trusted my coach @a.team.fitness 100% .
.
.
I couldn't have done it without her! Tomorrow's my check in but let me just say in the past 4 mos, I've lost >18lbs, gained strength in my upper body, lost body fat and went down 1-2 pant sizes (depending on what store I shop at)! .
.
.
If you would have told me back then that I could do that all in 4 mos, I would have been that cynical chick giving you the side eye πŸ˜‘
.
.
.
But here I am with newfound will power and determination. Certain things I would have never thought that I could do in the past, I'm stretching to get an itch for!! Once you start realizing that you are made for more and BELIEVE that you are capable, you become limitless.
.
.
.
So here I am, starting off on one goal of fitting into my wedding gown and slaying it but ending up gaining so much more confident, self assurance and power that I get to hold onto waaaaaayy after the "I do's"!! I cannot thank my gosh enough!! πŸ™πŸΎ
.
.
.
If I can do this....ANYONE can! πŸ’ͺ🏾 3 wks to go!

It's GO time!
.
.
.
Heading into the weekend like πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾! Coach is going to switch up my diet for the next /last phase before the "I do's" and I am up for the challenge!
.
.
It's incredible how your body transforms with the proper guidance and consistency! Train with the best to be the BEST! @a.team.fitness

NSV (non-scale victory) alert!
.
.

When have I ever had my workout pants THAT loose around the waist?!?!? NEVER! .
.
.
My midsection is getting smaller and we could tell by my 2nd dress fitting when I still had to take some fabric in through my torso! .
.
.
Every time I see my dress, I fall in love with it more and more. I just hope @olegdctravel loves it just as much as I do! .
.
The countdown has officially started! 1 month till our wedding!

πŸͺπŸ”πŸ₯žπŸ₯“πŸ³πŸ—πŸ°πŸŽ‚πŸ¦

.

That pretty much summed up my weekend. Am I proud of my self control. NOPE. Not ONE bit. Am I going to mope around and cry about it? HELL NO! πŸ™…πŸΎ
.
.
.
I can't change what happened to all the yummy foods this past weekend. I enjoyed every taste and deliciousness BUT what I also remember is how sluggish I felt when I worked out. .
.
.
I am back to my routine now and had a good lifting and cardio sesh tonight. I definitely thought when I put my leggings on today, I would see extra munchkins saying "hey" but to my surprise, I looked okay. .
.
.
The point is.....if you have a secure foundation of good nutrition and fitness, one or two slip ups won't kill ya. Of course you can't make it a habit because there will be a tipping point when those slip ups eventually becomes your usual and takes over. .
.
.
I have 4 weeks till I walk down the aisle and I will need all will power and accountability to stick tight to my plan. Who's with me!!! πŸ™‹πŸΎπŸ™‹πŸΎπŸ™‹πŸΎ

Here’s a tip if your stressed out - toss on some cute workout clothes, blast some of your favorite music (currently on my Cardi B flowπŸ”₯) and get your sweat on real quick!

I pushed myself. I challenged myself. I made a choice to put in crazy effort in my workout this morning. And I loved every moment of the post cardio high vibes πŸ”₯πŸ’¦ Now to go get this Friday moving πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’•

Someone get these Snapchat filters away from me! I'm currently mini obsessed!! Lol. But I am stoked that someone thought I was getting ready for competition. What an HUGE compliment! πŸ‘πŸΎ
.
.
.
And today, I decided to incorporate some new cable system workouts to torch my back! Enjoy!

Awesome back/bicep sesh today finished with sweaty cardio! Goals. Goals goals! 5 more weeks πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ”₯

Hahahaha! This Snapchat filter! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I have no idea what this animal is but I look like a chipmunk!
.
.
.
Anywho! Downing my first meal before the gym. Happy Thursday fitfam!

I did it!!! Phew, don't underestimate home workouts! Legs and abs on fi-yah!πŸ”₯ I'll be back in the gymbo tomorrow AM before picking up mama πŸͺ!

Feelin' like a semi bum tonight as I go into a long weekend. No gym tonight but will be doing 30mins of cardio workout at home.
.
.
.
So I'm here drinking my preworkout magic juice and reading my book to hopefully pump me up for a sweat sesh!

This page is more to keep myself accountable! Lol. If you don't see me posting, message me to kick my butt into gear! I have little under 6 weeks to for the wedding and I WILL get my body TIGHT! πŸ’ͺπŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ”₯
.
.
.
Chest and triceps done and a treadmill cardio workout plus elliptical because I still want to train a lil bit for the marine corp 10k!

Happy Monday! The gym is unusually quiet tonight and I am definitely NOT complaining! I feel like I'm at an amusement park and I have the "friend of line" pass! Woot woot!
