Keeping it real and raw, as always ✨ I do my best to live a healthy lifestyle, but I'm not always perfect πŸ™…πŸ»The last few months have come with a lot of ups and downs, causing me to focus less on myself and my active lifestyle. But I'm happy to report I'm finally getting back into the groove of taking care of my body 😊 the picture on the left was taken July 3rd, and the picture on the right was taken this morning. That's just over 3 weeks!! I simply changed up my workouts and am closely monitoring what I'm putting in my body. I'm eating five small meals a day, lifting weights and getting 10,000 steps per day πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ’ͺ🏻 YOU can accomplish anything you want to- it's all about your mindset. #transformationtuesday #unguardedandunbothered #raw

I remember the day that the picture on the left was taken very clearly. I was 22 years old and invited to go skydiving, something I've always wanted to do, and discovered that I was over the weight limit in order to do a tandem skydive. It was very disappointing that I had to miss out that day. It was shortly after that I decided I was going to quit missing out on life and doing the things I wanted to do due to circumstances I was in complete control of. I still haven't gone skydiving yet but it's on the list!

Every single day I wake up I look at this it's very simple... I have been told many many times that I won't be able to do it. Ive been told you need to live your life and have fun and be a "23" year old. Here's the thing I am doing what I love and that's that. I've committed to this I have chosen it and choose it every day. I thank God for the life that I've been given and will not take it for granted I will be the best me I can be each time I step on that stage. My time will come and I'll be sure to be ready when it does. #lifestyle #choices #determination #midwestfitfam #consistency

Today's breakfast was gluten free @vansfoods waffles with sugar free syrup πŸ˜‹πŸ€€ for the past few weeks I have cut dairy and gluten to help with my hormonal acne! I firmly believe that it's important to heal from within your body and it's paying off! I will do an update soon to show you the progress! #unguardedandunbothered #glutenfree #healfromwithin

A good, hot, and sweaty workout tonight. πŸ‘Œ
Might have to contribute some of that to the new head phones, which are on point.🎧
Hit cardio, quads, and a little bit of abs. Following @thedanielbeck workout program he wrote up last week.

Sipping on preworkout on a walk. It's easy to get so caught up in day-to-day hustle to stop and appreciate the beautiful city you live in. Walks are something Steve Jobs utilized as a mechanism to really take a step back and focus (or not) on things. πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

The picture on the left was from June 2007. I was at my heaviest which was pretty close to 200lbs. I wore size XL shirts and had a 38 inch inseam at my heaviest.
I ate just about everything I wanted to without any regard of how it would impact my health and my overall well being.
Exercise and eating right was the last thing on my mind. I ate just because I felt like it. Somewhere along the lines I thought, dreamt even, about the day I would get out of the vicious cycle and finally change the habits for good.
After starting a full time job and working 40+ hrs/week, I managed to lose some weight. This lit a small fire under my ass and I slowly started to incorporate some cardio and lifting weights into the mix.
The picture on the right is where I currently stand. It's been 10 years. I've lost 70lbs. I wear size medium shirts and have a 30 inch inseam (give or take). Through tracking my calories and following intermittent fasting, I was able to achieve what I thought was never possible My relationship with food is at its best. I feel and look a lot better than I ever have in my life. I allow myself to eat flexibly, still enjoying the occasional treat here and there.
I just wanted say that anyone is capable of anything if they put their heart and mind into their dreams and goals. Compound interest over time, doing the menial little things, can and will pay off. I promise.

πŸ’₯You could say I am excited to try some more @nutrabio supplements shortly!
I have been very happy with the supplements I have gotten from them and tried up until now. πŸ‘Œ
I like to test out new supplements (especially pre workouts) but I always seem to resort back to the nutrabio pre workout.
The more I learn about Nutrabio as a company the more I respect what they are offering to the industry, so for this reason I am definitely going to try some more of their supplements.
If you are interested in checking them out use the link in my bio!

πŸ’₯Double tap if you agree. 😎
______________________________
πŸ’₯ Mornings, the time in which I determine how the rest of my day will play out.
I first learned of following a morning routine from listening to numerous other people talk about what led them to be successful. And I started putting it into play myself.
When I get up in the morning I follow a very similar routine every day and even on mornings that I feel off I can stop myself check where my heads at and choose to a line myself to have a successful day. πŸ‘Œ
It's all about putting things into perspective and then finding balance.
Count the little wins early in the day.✌

Dumbbell hamstring curls πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ this is one of my fave @katyhearnfit lifts! Scoop up a dumbbell with your feet and curl your feet toward your booty πŸ‘ focus on slow and controlled movements and squeezing at the top. You'll def be feeling the burn with these babies πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ”₯ #khfloorhams #legday #bootygains

In honor of #nationalchestday I give to you a clip of banded hammer strength chest press. I tried this as my first banded movement in a long time. It was definitely effective!
Give some band loaded movements a try and see what you think! .
