It took me over an hour this morning to convince myself to get out of bed and go run #ihaterunning πŸ™ƒ 3 miles at an 8:39 pace followed with 5 uphill sprints with the weighted vest on. Not the most extreme workout, but a good one for an active rest day!
Afterwards when I was taking way too many selfies in my dad's motorhome I realized something: this is the highest high I've reached in this 'journey to a healthier me' as I like to call it. This is the happiest I've ever been with my body & I'm the most confident I've ever been. This is the best shape I've ever been in, and I'm stronger than ever before. Thanks to #iifym I now have a healthy relationship with food & my nutrition habits are under control. My goals are big & my motivation is strong. It's only going to keep getting better from here! #myfitnessjourney #weightloss #transformation #workout #burnbootcamp #burnbootcampverona #burnnation #learntolovetheburn #progress #motivated #strongnotskinny #progressnotperfection #choosetobebetter #iifym #avatarnutrition #flexibledieting #eatcleantraindirty #girlswholift #neversettle #strongwomen #fitness #fitfam #goaldigger #findingfit #greasypigletgetsfit

A glimpse into this mornings workout, featuring Papa Kuik in that pretty blue dragster 😍
A kettlebell, jump rope, resistance band, and my body weight are all I needed for today's workout. Ran 2 miles and then did 3 circuits of 3 moves each. You don't need the fanciest gym or equipment to get a good workout in.

Guys...I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF!!! If you've been following me for a while, you know that nutrition is where I've really struggled in the past and have to put the most effort into now. As much as #iifym has saved me, previous negative binge eating & restrictive behaviors sometimes surface and tempt me. Yesterday by 330 in the afternoon, I had already eaten my planned dinner and macro topper, that's how hungry I was. By 6, I was hungry again. In the past, I would have said "you already ate your calories for the day," deprived myself, and then a few hours later would start drinking which would end in eating...a lot. Last night, I didn't restrict myself when I got hungry, and ate and logged my "extra" food in a controlled manner. If you look at my score card and all of those red, 100%+ numbers, you can see that I'm way over & non-compliant on my macro goals for yesterday. I may even end up having to mark non-compliant during my weigh-in with @avatarnutrition this week, but to be honest, I really don't care because I was in control. I didn't let my previous behaviors creep back. I watched my habits, and I won. #myfitnessjourney #weightloss #transformation #workout #burnbootcamp #burnbootcampverona #burnnation #learntolovetheburn #progress #motivated #strongnotskinny #progressnotperfection #choosetobebetter #iifym #avatarnutrition #flexibledieting #eatcleantraindirty #girlswholift #neversettle #strongwomen #fitness #fitfam #goaldigger #findingfit #greasypigletgetsfit

"be stronger than your excuses"

Did I want to work out this morning while at the race track? Oh heck no, but I did anyways because my goals aren't going to get reached otherwise. It makes it all worth it when someone who hasn't seen you in months drives up on the golf cart and says "dang girl, you've been working..."

REAL TALK, and about as vulnerable as I'll get on here.
After posting my transformation picture the other day, someone that I went to school with reached out, congratulating me. They then went on to say how I'm really lucky, because this all comes so easy to me. I'd say I have pretty tough skin and don't often let things people say get to me, but that comment just rubbed me the wrong way. I'm not lucky & this does not come easy to me - I had to work my ass off to lose 40 pounds & 16% body fat, and then work even harder to maintain that weight loss. Nutrition doesn't come easy to me: I had to do my research to educate myself, still work on fighting off previous binge eating behaviors, and I make the time to meal prep, weigh & log my foods, and hit my macro goals. Sure, I love working out, but that doesn't make it easy, either. I've been busting my butt for the last 8 weeks after having my forth knee surgery by the age of 23. There's days where the motivation is lacking and the discipline needs to kick in. There's workouts where I feel like the weakest person alive.
I'm not lucky; I just have big goals set for myself, and I know that I need to work hard & stay focused to reach those goals. It doesn't come easy to me. Did I want to eat my homemade chicken alfredo pizza tonight? Heck no, I wanted to call up Domino's and get the chicken alfredo bread bowl! Did I want to finish my workout earlier today with 5 sets of these sandbag burpees and squat jumps? No way - there was sand flying everywhere and my leggies were on fire, but I finished the burnout anyways. Each and every day I remember my "why" and make the conscious decision to be better than the girl I was the day before. That's​ not being lucky; it's being driven.

Usually, getting a raise & passing a big exam for work both within the same week call for celebratory drinks. For me, they called for - you guessed it - a workout πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Cranked out 3 miles in an 8:18 min/mile pace, and then did this fun lil' workout that my lovely old trainer wrote up for me. It's been a hot minute since I've done a clean & press, and 40 reps worth definitely had me huffing for air, but it was fun and a new challenge! #myfitnessjourney #weightloss #transformation #workout #burnbootcamp #burnbootcampverona #burnnation #learntolovetheburn #progress #motivated #strongnotskinny #progressnotperfection #choosetobebetter #iifym #avatarnutrition #flexibledieting #eatcleantraindirty #girlswholift #neversettle #strongwomen #fitness #fitfam #goaldigger #findingfit #greasypigletgetsfit

NOTHING about today's full body conditioning superset @burnbootcampveronawi was pretty.
I felt weak, slow, and uncoordinated.
The words "I'm dying" came out of my mouth a lot, and I took more breaks than I would have liked to.
I wanted so badly to give up.
Ended the workout​ with a loooong cool-down on the bike. Not every workout will be pretty.
Reminding myself that an ugly workout is better than no workout at all. #myfitnessjourney #weightloss #transformation #workout #burnbootcamp #burnbootcampverona #burnnation #learntolovetheburn #progress #motivated #strongnotskinny #progressnotperfection #choosetobebetter #iifym #avatarnutrition #flexibledieting #eatcleantraindirty #girlswholift #neversettle #strongwomen #fitness #fitfam #goaldigger #findingfit #greasypigletgetsfit

Here's what I know:
-carbs are NOT the enemy
-it's all about moderation, not restriction
-peanut butter is my one true love
-weighing out and tracking food isn't for everyone, but it's the nutrition plan that works best for me
-this is my third time today eating Greek Yogurt...I may have a problem 🀣 #myfitnessjourney #weightloss #transformation #workout #burnbootcamp #burnbootcampverona #burnnation #learntolovetheburn #progress #motivated #strongnotskinny #progressnotperfection #choosetobebetter #iifym #avatarnutrition #flexibledieting #eatcleantraindirty #girlswholift #neversettle #strongwomen #fitness #fitfam #goaldigger #findingfit #greasypigletgetsfit

Weekly @avatarnutrition check-in coming attcha! Even though my macros got cut a bit for this coming week, I'm still super pleased with this weigh-in. My macro targets have remained the same since the beginning of May, which means for the last three weeks I've been eating all the food while still losing weight. As much as I wanted my macros to stay the same for another week (give me all the carbs 🀣) it's just not realistic for my body to continue losing weight at the calories/macros I was at. I chose the fat loss setting for a reason, and as much as I hate the word, I am "dieting down" and with that means my cals & macros will need to decrease, too.

Anyways, enough rambling... I'll admit, core conditioning day @burnbootcampveronawi wasn't my favorite - I'm exhausted from playing volleyball late last night, my body is sore, and my knee is feeling tight. But, I pushed through and got it done. Broke out my new Calvin Klein leggings, and while super comfortable, they quickly reminded me that white is not a slimming color #bootyandquadsfordaysss πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #myfitnessjourney #weightloss #transformation #workout #burnbootcamp #burnbootcampverona #burnnation #learntolovetheburn #progress #motivated #strongnotskinny #progressnotperfection #choosetobebetter #iifym #avatarnutrition #flexibledieting #eatcleantraindirty #girlswholift #neversettle #strongwomen #fitness #fitfam #goaldigger #findingfit #greasypigletgetsfit

Legs & cardio tripod tonight at @burnbootcampveronawi had those quads on fire! Definitely was feeling the burn tonight. Followed the camp up with the first FMA meeting - and yes, I brought my dindin and BCAAs along cuz I'm not ready for my #burnsisters to see the hangry side of me quite yet πŸ˜‚

I've said it before, and I'll say it many more times - I love @burnbootcamp πŸ’• #myfitnessjourney #weightloss #transformation #workout #burnbootcamp #burnbootcampverona #burnnation #learntolovetheburn #progress #motivated #strongnotskinny #progressnotperfection #choosetobebetter #iifym #flexibledieting #eatcleantraindirty #girlswholift #neversettle #strongwomen #fitness #fitfam #goaldigger #findingfit #greasypigletgetsfit

Everyone knows how obsessed I am with @burnbootcamp, so it'll come as no surprise that I stole my favorite #commit2fitburn workout (total volume Thursday), intensified it, and spent an hour an a half at the gym cranking it out - all while wearing my Burn gear. "Be stronger than your excuses" was my motto throughout, especially between rounds while dying on the StairMaster!
Also, side note - @robare50 remember when I told you that I'd never have abs? Maybe it's the lighting and angles, or mayyyybe I'm sorta getting some abdominal definition? Mayyyybe? 😁 #myfitnessjourney #weightloss #transformation #workout #burnbootcamp #burnbootcampverona #burnnation #learntolovetheburn #progress #motivated #strongnotskinny #progressnotperfection #choosetobebetter #iifym #avatarnutrition #flexibledieting #eatcleantraindirty #girlswholift #neversettle #strongwomen #fitness #fitfam #goaldigger #findingfit #greasypigletgetsfit

Two months ago at this time I was in the hospital for my knee surgery. Today, I did a double conditioning superset workout @burnbootcampveronawi - the first camp I cranked out with my 20lb weighted vest on. Then I jumped into a team training class nextdoor at Anytime. My shirt says it all: strong is the new skinny. As much as having that knee surgery two months ago sucked, it reminded me of my strength, and has driven me to push myself & be better every single day! #myfitnessjourney #weightloss #transformation #workout #burnbootcamp #burnbootcampverona #burnnation #learntolovetheburn #progress #motivated #strongnotskinny #progressnotperfection #choosetobebetter #iifym #avatarnutrition #flexibledieting #eatcleantraindirty #girlswholift #neversettle #strongwomen #fitness #fitfam #goaldigger #findingfit #greasypigletgetsfit

Chest, tricep, & core tripod at @burnbootcampveronawi and a quick 2 mile run for tonight's workout.

After the workout, one of my partners​ (a guy) came up to me and said "I'm pretty sure you can lift more than me" ... well thank you, kind sir, strong & badass is the goal πŸ’ͺπŸ€— Leaning out, getting stronger, and uncovering those baby muscles - I see you, baby tricep!!! #myfitnessjourney #weightloss #transformation #workout #burnbootcamp #burnbootcampverona #burnnation #learntolovetheburn #progress #motivated #strongnotskinny #progressnotperfection #choosetobebetter #iifym #avatarnutrition #flexibledieting #eatcleantraindirty #girlswholift #neversettle #strongwomen #fitness #fitfam #goaldigger #findingfit #greasypigletgetsfit

Yesterday I posted my transformation picture in a Facebook support group for members with @avatarnutrition, and it just blew up...of course my mom liked it lol, but over 650 other people also reacted to it. The more attention it got, the more critical I became of it, questioning if you really could tell a difference, why I wasn't further along on this journey, and noticing my flaws. I've made so much mental progress over the years, but there's still improvements to me made. I've grown, but you also better believe I've struggled. It hasn't been a linear journey by any means - I've had plenty of ups and downs, and there have been times where I threw in the towel. My nutrition has been all over the place, from binge eating to absolute restriction, and it wasn't until late until I finally got it under control, thanks to #iifym. Working out has never been the hard part for me, and finding things that I love to do has definitely helped (oh hey, lifting, HIIT, and @burnbootcampveronawi πŸ˜„πŸ˜„). I have grown so much. I have struggled. I hope to be that light: to show people that change is possible, that journeys are not linear, and that hard work, consistency, and perseverance can get you where you want to be! #myfitnessjourney #weightloss #transformation #workout #burnbootcamp #burnbootcampverona #burnnation #learntolovetheburn #progress #motivated #strongnotskinny #progressnotperfection #choosetobebetter #iifym #avatarnutrition #flexibledieting #eatcleantraindirty #girlswholift #neversettle #strongwomen #fitness #fitfam #goaldigger #findingfit #greasypigletgetsfit
