Make your own “fast food” ... and let’s healthify it! These pre-made, #wholewheat #pizzacrusts from #Target are super convenient and more nutritious than standard pizza crusts. Make sure you always choose the whole wheat option for any grainy substance (i.e. breads, crusts, pastas, etc) to increase your #fiber intake. Measure how much cheese and pepperoni you add. Don’t forget to add lots of #veggies!

First figure competition and I placed 3rd out of 8 girls!
I am beyond excited with the outcome and even though I was crazy nervous on stage and I swear my smile was visibly twitching for the whole audience to see, it was all so worth it. The feeling of support from my friends, family, and fellow competitors was unlike any thing I’ve experienced. I appreciate everyone who supported and encouraged me throughout this journey, and I can’t wait to compete with my sister @itsdanafit @ranadogers, my dad, and my friend @monicamarie.fit @monicamariew in a month ❤️❤️❤️

Happy Sunday! ☀️
_
So, I’ve been pretty absent on social media lately but I wanted to take the time to explain what has happened!
_
I pulled from my competition. That’s right. I literally feel like a quitter, but hear me out. I was driving myself into the ground trying to find time to fit my workouts into the day. I was having a hard time balancing end of the year papers and projects at school, spending 40 hours per week at an unpaid practicum. I wasn’t happy with what I was seeing in the mirror and I would have regretted stepping on stage and not being able to have given it my all.
_
So plans for the future! I’m going to continue training just like I do now, I’m still going to do my cardio, and track my macros, but I’m going to have a balance. Maybe I’ll compete in the future when it fits into my life a little better.

**Truth Time**
Besides our Wi-Fi deciding to quit....I have been super stressed about my upcoming surgery. My workouts have taken a back seat because of this. I do workout but not on a consistent basis. Today I did AAA and it felt good. I am going to push myself as much as I can up until my surgery date. Once I have my surgery I will be 100% focused on my nutrition. I am not able to workout until I get the OK from my Doc. Once I get that I plan on starting 80 Day Obsession from Day 1 and going hard!!!!! #80dayobsession #beachbody #keeppushing #namasteandrelax #girlgains

#tb to Coachella Day 1 with this beauty!! 💛💛

Happy Sunday everyone!
Today I’ve ended my three day fast and wanted to shed some light on my experience. Fasting is not a diet or primarily used for weight loss but for improving digestion therefore resulting in a loss of weight naturally due to letting all food fully break down and digest. It honestly was a bit rough this time and on Saturday (my 3rd day) I experienced a lot of fatigue. This experience was a little rough but all together i felt very calm, my body was at ease not having to constantly work digesting food. Now i will transition into intermittent fasting only eating 8 hours in the day and giving my body 16 hours of rest while consuming an ample amount of food in that given time. 😊 if you have questions, comment ⤵️ (And yes I have self tan on)

First #postworkout smoothie using @natural_health_company Berries Superfood! I’ll admit - I don’t love the product name but everything else about it is awesome! It tasted amazing and is a great way to help me get Maca powder and L-carnitine in my diet. My smoothie also had vanilla protein powder, coconut water and ice. #berries #superfood #winning .

On the way up! Sunday’s are leg days. Leg days are my favorite; they show me just how strong I am
.

This was my first time on the squat rack since I hurt my back... and then hurt my knee, a while back. To my surprise, I picked up right where I left off and was even able to add more weight, despite my rest time. The human body is crazy in that way
.

I’ll be the first to roll my eyes at people that take pictures while working out. “If you didn’t take a picture, did you really work out?”
.

But it’s necessary sometimes. They help you with form - so you don’t hurt yourself. They point out how you can improve to become stronger. They show you how much of a badass you really are
.

So take pictures now and then - share them. You’re working your ass off and you should be damn proud of that
.

I have had sooo many questions as to what “good mornings” are from one of my last post’s workout!
This works to activate the hamstrings and is 💯 percent one of my favorite leg exercises. Keep your feet together with you knees slightly bent. Slowly bend at your hips and form a flat table with your back. Stand up quickly. This isn’t only good for the legs, but also strengthens your back and works on your balance! So why are they called good mornings? When you wake up and get out of bed the next day, bend over and you’ll see why! 😂😆

Let’s talk about progress.
.
Every time I’ve taken one of these pictures, I’ve done so begrudgingly. I’d stand looking in the mirror thinking, “I’m lumpier! I’m bigger....how’d I let this happen?!” 😟 Then, I’d do my side by side pics.....🤗
.
The mind is a powerful thing, my friends. 💪 We are our own worst critics. In each picture I’ve clearly made progress towards my goal. But without these pictures, and the support of my fit family 👯 (who encourage me to push play on my workouts every day, even when I’m trying to talk myself out of it), I may have thrown in the towel and decided there was no point to all my hard work.
.
I still have a lot of work to do to get to my goal, but I’m taking it one day at a time. If you want to lock arms with me on your fitness journey, and would like an encouraging fit fam to cheer you along the way, let me know! We have a group of newbies starting this week and are always welcoming more gals into our tribe, pushing forward towards our goals! 💕👯💪

Feeling guilty for eating when your hungry is kinda like feeling guilty for breathing when your lungs need oxygen ..... it makes no sense when these things are needed for the body for survival. We have literally been taught to be ashamed of our basic human needs . You need to refuse to feel shame and know that your allowed to eat despite whatever you feel ❤️💕❤️

Had a very busy day offline and just had a 2 hour massage. Honestly felt drunk afterwards but getting some food and water in me afterwards is making me feel more normal. Face mask is on and sure a shower will transform me 😂 New macro find is these pizza crusts from @target! I topped 1/2 a crust with @traderjoesfl tomato paste mixed with mild @tacobell sauce, Italian herbs, @bumblebeefoods tuna pouch, mini bell peppers and almond milk @traderjoes shreds. I picked these up yesterday to try...I don't think they are nearly as good as mozzarella when melted but in a sandwich they are more tasty. Probably will stick to regular cheese but always worth trying these things!
