friday night - editing a video 😁πŸŽ₯ seriously, one of my favorite things to do πŸ’•

I remember when looking in the mirror after weightloss made me upset. .
I used to really let my loose skin affect my mindset. Slowly over time I began to work on my self confidence and I started to realise that I am who I am. .
I realised that very little people actually cared about loose skin (in relationships) and I also realised that I was 100x better off than where I was before.
.
Yesterday I talked about focus and this another one of those examples of making sure your focus is in the right place. I was focused on the little part rather than the overall picture. It will take time, but you will start to love yourself if you truly work on it and want it.

Keep up the awesome work πŸ’ͺπŸ’―

PROTEIN POWDER FACTS AND MYTHS .
MYTH 1. Protein powder will help you burn fat and build muscle....
FACT -although a higher protein diet is correlated with weightloss and or muscle gain, no certain brand or flavour of whey protein is going to achieve this for you just by drinking a shake.
When paired with a proper diet and training routine then these things will occur but they can be done without any protein powder at all. But protein powder can make the process easier, cheaper, and more convenient.
.
MYTH 2. Protein Powder isn't as good as real food so don't have it too often.....
FACT -having too much of anything is bad but to say protein powder isn't real food is false. While there are some brands out there full of chemicals and fillers(Legion doesn't have any fillers or any artificial sweeteners or colours), whey protein powder is derived from milk making it a complete protein and food. For people eating a high protein diet it can be very difficult to get protein in. I do recommend trying your best to eat other foods but finishing off your protein with a few scoops of whey will not harm you and in fact is way better off then not hitting your protein goal at all.
.
If you guys are looking for a protein that doesn't have any crap or fillers in it and is also sweetened and coloured naturally, then I would highly reccomend checking out @legionath
Whey+. My favorite flavours are Cookies and Cream, and Chocolate Peanut Butter. They also have a Vegan protein for those who are on a Vegan diet or maybe want a protein that is easier on the stomach.

My first attempt at kayla s bbg salmon cakes. So easy to make and tasty eaten hot or cold. These would be good as a snack too. I paired mine with broccoli and it was so satisfying. Give it a try ☺☺ #bbgprogress #fitlife #gymsharks #health #wellness #kayla #sport #transform #transformations #wellness #health #fit #body #keto #barbells #cleaneating #gymsharkgirls #fitlifestyle #lukehinesonline #lifestyle # diet #aliceliveing #rootz #jowickes #graciesjourney #instafit

July 23, 2016 πŸ‘‰πŸΌ July 23, 2017 // Exactly one year apart πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Never felt so proud of something in my life πŸ’ͺ🏼 Literally crying in the gym rn looking at the difference in my arms. My arms have been my biggest insecurity since day 1 and to see them bounce back like this is the most rewarding part of this whole journey. No matter how many times you have to restart your diet or get back to the gym, NEVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF. NEVER EVER. It is all soooo worth it ❀️ #ILookLikeDenise #SendHelp #SundayFunday #Transformation #FitForAReason #SefLoveRevolution #SORRYMAGY #BirthdayTwin

This is my 4th day of BBG and I'm still going strong with your support. Many of you asked for the recipe for my bliss balls I posted earlier, so here it is. I will forward a short video to go with this recipe later.

Ok well there are so many different recipes for bliss balls out there so I just put mine together with my favourite ingredients.

I blended roughly 100g raw cashews, 30g almonds, 30g pecans and 30g walnuts until they looked like crumbs. I just used what I had open so you can vary the amount to suit.

I then added about 15 dates deseeded and blended further. I added a pinch of vanilla bean paste but you could use vanilla extract instead. Optional is cacao powder. I love chocolate in my treats and cacao is so good for you so I added around 2 tsps cacao and blended further.
All that's left to do now is roll into any size balls and either leave as they are or cover in your favourite coatings.

I cover mine in dark chocolate, coconut and cacao. If you have any freeze dried raspberries or chopped pistachios these are also yummy.

I pop them in the freezer for 20 minutes and they are ready to enjoy. I leave some to freeze and take out a few at a time for the next day.

These make great gifts for your friends who are trying to stay healthy. So much more nourishing than a box of chocolates and give you that energy boost too πŸƒπŸ‹ #bbgprogress #fitlife #gymsharks #health #wellness #kayla #sport #transform #transformations #wellness #health #fit #body #keto #barbells #cleaneating #gymsharkgirls #fitlifestyle #lukehinesonline #lifestyle # diet #aliceliveing #rootz #jowickes #graciesjourney #instafit #cacao #lukehinesonline #lifestyle#barbells

I can't wait to cook these layer. I will share my results later with you guys. Preparing my food today so busy busy. Need to fit liss in at some point. It's a juggling act!
