This before and after has been a work in progress but I’ve loved every stage of color in between ❤️ This is after 4 sessions of balayage. Client wanted a more solid white blonde on her ends. So so pretty! I die 😍

Hi! 👋🏼 Long time, no see! 🙈 The last few weeks have been crazy here, and I am disappointed to admit that I have not handled them responsibly. Like... At all. I won’t be hitting my 195 by October 1st goal, and that’s a certainty. But to quote my friend @rundisneyorbust, “if I wanted different results, I should’ve behaved differently.” 💯 I’m hoping, though, that I can rally and at least get to Onederland before our anniversary vacation at the end of October. Fingers crossed!
.
So even though I fell off the wagon (again) and my weight is definitely not where I want it to be right now, the last few weeks have definitely shown me important things for my journey.
.
1) I’m really an all-or-nothing person. I can’t do moderation. One little thing here becomes one more little thing there becomes EAT ALL THE THINGS. Especially when it comes to sugar. I just love baked things, y’all.
.
2) I NEED my routine. I need my Sunday meal prep days and if I don’t have them, the entire week is downhill. Not having things ready to go for breakfast/lunch/dinner automatically mean we’re getting take-out or fast food.
.
3) I hate take-out/fast food. HATE IT. I feel disgusting no matter what/where we eat. It’s too damn expensive. And most of the time I end up hating/being unsatisfied with whatever I get.
.
4) I am SO WEAKKKKKKK. I am the queen of justifying a “treat” which turns into a day off which turns into two weeks off. My will power is basically zero. UGH.
.
5) I want this. I want to turn my health and bad habits around. I want to lose the weight. I want to get active and have energy and feel good. That means I HAVE to make changes, and more importantly I have to find a way to shut up the little voice in my head that encourages getting off track.
.
So here we go again. Back on track. This won’t be the last derailment, I’m sure. But around here.... we #keepmovingforward. ↗️

Where does motivation, willpower, drive, etc, etc, come from? Well! In my opinion, motivation & willpower are like muscles; the more you use them, the more they’ll grow. #truestory 💪🏻🌱 The woman on the left had zero clue what she was about to accomplish, but she worked, kept going, kept GROWING, and so many things changed. #mindbodyandsoul My belief in myself changed. My love for ALL of myself changed. I do this for me. Not a dress, not a guy, not a number on the scale. THAT is magic, my friends, and the even bigger transformation. 🤗🔮 #transformationtuesday

PS: Part of it is lighting, part is my mean af bicep vein, but yes, when I “get a pump on” you are starting to see bicep separation when I flex. 😆😇 #newarmwhodis #cuttingthings

#transformationtuesday 💪🏾 this is about a 20 pound difference in 3 months! I haven’t been posting much because I’m getting ready to work a new job, but I’m going to try to stay consistent with my posts. Taking pictures shows the progress that the scales tend to miss out on. My fav #nonscalevictory is being able to fit into old clothes! What’s yours?

Happy #transformationtuesday friends💕

I AM OFFICIALLY 20 POUNDS DOWN! This pic isn’t even at my highest weight 🤯 I am legitimately in shock at how different my body feels & clothes fit after only 20lbs loss. My dream is to lose a whole 100 lbs! But we’ll see. I haven’t been at a “normal” weight since, huh, probably age 18 or 19 when I was vegan in college. Sadly I was also extremely unwell at that time. My depression & anxiety were making it near impossible for me to eat food despite d e s p e r a t e l y wanting to eat. But those demons are under control for now, and I’m returning to veganism without as much militancy! So it’d be awesome to be at 120lbs (I’m 5’1) but who knows. Plus I imagine I’ll have loose skin (boo) which will add some extra lbs. We’ll see!! ONE STEP AT A TIME. I’m trying to remember that. Life is best lived one day at a time with a flexible idea of where you’re headed 🚀 I’ve got loads of work to do today. Horoscopes to write, birth charts to read, classes to prep for. Have a beautiful day 🌱 #weightloss #beforeandafter #beforeandduring #beforeandafterweightloss #beforeandduringweightloss #transformationtuesday #weightlosstransformation #weightlosstransformations #igtransformations #veganweightloss #plantbaseddiet #plantbased #plantbasedweightloss #vegan #vegansofig #obesetobeast #obesetofit #loseit

When I saw this post I knew I needed to share it!!! There is so much incorrect information on the internet about protein, so for those of you who wonder, question, or ask about this hear it and learn from an amazingly knowledgeable doctor. ❤ this post!
*
Regran_ed from @drnadolsky - After yesterday’s post I got some questions about kidneys etc when it comes to protein. If your doctor lifts, he or she will know these things.
*
Protein has gotten a bad reputation.
*
1. In healthy individuals, high protein diets have never been show to harm your kidneys. In fact, at very high levels done in Jose Antonio's lab, they showed no harm over a year of a very high protein diet. There are some big reviews recently showing the same. I would discuss with your doctor if you do have kidney disease because you'll want to adjust.
*
2. People always ask if they can handle more than 30 grams of protein in each feeding. This was started due to protein synthesis maxing out around that level but you also have to look into protein breakdown. Higher levels of protein in a meal my lower protein breakdown and also be used for other things in the body.
*
3. The last thing I hear often is how protein is bad for your bones. This is BS ... ESPECIALLY if you combine it with resistance training. Eat it up and stay hydrated and lift weights.
