call it what you waaaan, but here's a little #flashbackfriday // #flexfriday for y'all πŸ’ͺ🏼 but more so for me- I'm not a huge advocate for transformation pics (although in moderation I think they're better gauges than a scale) but no matter what kind of journey you face, there WILL inevitably be both ups and downs. with that being said- looooots of ups and downs have transpired between these two photos; and since I always wanna be πŸ’― transparent with you guys, this is me doing so. lots of defeats BUT lots of victories. weight gain, weight loss (at times probs too much) muscle growth, insecurity, confidence, strength, boldness, struggle (lots I wasn't even aware of), restriction, freedom, overcoming, etc etc have all taken place and NONE of these experiences should elicit shame. and the same can AND should be the case for whatever you're currently going through. We evolve, our minds and thoughts grow, our bodies change; THATS LIFE. but where we draw our security, worth, freedom and identity shouldn't. it doesn't need to be rooted in something that isn't permanent nor should it be. if our identity stems from something that is and will be constantly changing, how can we ever find contentment? Jesus loves you man- and by no means am I trying to shove my beliefs down anyone's throats; I just want y'all to know that you can feel AND BE FREE from whatever is weighing you down. your chains don't have to bind you. your circumstance isn't permanent nor does it define you. the emphasis here isn't meant for the physical transformation (cause that's always changing) but more for the mental transformation. victory is yours for the taking babe. You are so much more than a "number" and girl, you are so deeply loved- let yourself feel it β™₯️

The girl on the left was constantly thinking about calories, exercise, and perpetually struggled with her weight, thinking she was fat after gaining muscle. The girl on the right, a year later, has made peace with herself. She still loves working out and eating healthy but it doesn't |d e f i n e| her. Being β€’healthyβ€’ is NOT just physical, it's mental as well. What are you telling yourself? That you will only be beautiful and worthy once you hit a certain number of pounds on a scale? Or that you are smart, kind, worthy, a good friend and daughter, who is working on being the healthiest version of herself? Ask yourself β€’w h yβ€’ you are going to the gym everyday. Is it out of "obligation" or because you really want to be there? Learning balance is not easy. But it's worth your mental and physical health❀️

Just tired!!! I wanna go home, climb in the bed and sleep for the rest of the day! But... I'm heading to the gym to workout for my hour! #tired #workingouttho #maybeillgetsomeenergy #weightloss #noscalesummer

For the past 13 years, food and weight have been a constant battle for me. I wondered so often how could anyone have a normal relationship with food? Because I just couldn't. And I think I had given up. I had given up on trying to be healthy or fit. Then I saw some BBG results on Instagram, and I got really interested. I started doing the program and saw progress almost immediately.
Then I stopped. I fell off. I quit.... but a few months later I started again; I created this Instagram, and have dedicated myself to living a healthy life THANKS TO ALL OF YOU! β€’
β€’
I'm not constantly hungry. I don't think about food, my body, or my physical appearance 24/7. I feel balanced, whole, and well. It took time but DAMN was it worth it! β€’

When I look at these two photos I see a girl who was lost standing next to someone who is really truly happy. I never thought I could be both of those people πŸ˜€πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„πŸ˜†πŸ˜

In case you're in need of reminding:
Amazing things happen when you start to focus on the HEALTH of the cells that make up your body rather than the WEIGHT of them. Yesterday I had to step on the scale at the doctors office and for some reason I felt nervous. I know I'm much healthier now than I used to be, but for so long I was the girl that just wanted to reach her goal weight - sometimes it's hard to kick that mindset completely. But then I look at these pictures and realize just how much muscle I'd have to lose in order to be the 115 pounds I used to desire. And I know now that it wouldn't be healthy. Stop focusing on the weight loss and focus on the #gains. Both mental and physical. You are so much more than a number. You are the healthy heart behind every cardio session and the strong muscles behind every dumbbell lifted. Stop giving the scale all the credit. It's happier that way I promise πŸ˜˜πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

I was not planning on posting this, but the photo on the left popped up on my time hop this morning. Two years ago today, I competed in a figure competition. My viewpoint on health and fitness has changed a lot since that day.
I remember being a teenager and standing in front of the mirror. I envisioned a 'thin body' with abs and smaller legs. This is what my mind at the time deemed as 'healthy' and 'fit'.
The media portrays to us that this body type should be our 'end goal'. The problem is, the media only shows the image, but not the story behind it. They fail to portray that this physique is not 'healthy' for MOST body types, NOR sustainable.
The image on the left shows a body that the media portrays as 'goals'. What the image does not show you is the hours of training that were spent in the gym. The nights spent at home to avoid being surrounded by food. The cupboards filled with sugar free labels and mustard packets eaten to starve off hunger. The days spent sleeping outside of training sessions because I was drained of any energy i had left.
Most importantly, this image does not show the emotional suffering. I spent the first half of my twenties working to achieve the physique on the left. When I finally achieved it, I felt lost and unhappy. Sure I had this media worthy b o d y, but what I did not have was my life.
I share my experiences because I don't want you to be that person looking in the mirror wishing you had 'abs' or a 'thigh gap'. I don't want you looking at an image and making that your 'goal'. Fit and healthy is not one universal body type. It's not one set pants size. It's not one specific number on the scale.
I want every one to be healthy, but in a way that is sustainable and appropriate for their own b o d y type. Meaning I want you to love yourself, soak up every ounce of life, and be healthy in your own way. πŸ’œ

When your chain hang LOWER!!!
Was having one of those days where I didn't see my progress so I started going through current & old selfies.

Don't down play your own progress looking at someone else's.

Celebrate the small victories!

What are some ways you measure your progress!?!? _

Three stars to commemorate my first DSDN rockin' retreat. The star is meaningful because, as rockin mom's, we believe our kids are rockstars. And so are we. Three stars because Good things come in threes. Trisomy 21. The Holy Trinity. Shoutout to Melissa Hood Shutwell for the perfect description of why we got matching star tattoos. ✨

I haven't been able to workout in over two weeks. If you know me, you know that is TORTURE! Now I want to jump back in full force, but I know I need to ease myself back in. I'll be doing another round of a more low impact program before I get back to something high intensity! And I cannot waaaaiiiiit. πŸ’ƒπŸΌ

YOU are MORE than just a number. you are more than what someone says or thinks about you. you are more than the size of your jeans, your dress or what that dang scale says. you are a beautiful human being with a uniquely crafted soul. your purpose goes beyond how much "space" you take up in this world and your worth does not depend on whether that space is large or small. you're going to be remembered for the impact that YOU had- not your weight. what's prompting me to say this all? if you've been following me for awhile, you know I started #noscalesummer back in June. I stated that the scale could be anything you let control or consume you and I had encouraged y'all to let go of things that had a hold on your life. I got incredible messages and posts from some of you and got to have amazing conversations about how to let go of fears that weigh us down. this entire summer for me has been dedicated to listening to my body, getting my hormones balanced again, and continuing to create a healthier body and mind for myself. its been a loooong process as I've been trying to heal and regulate my gut, my hormonal issues, and my auto immune disease and yeah- I've gained some weight but I've also reestablished a more normal cycle (sorry to all the fellas following me but my focus is to reach women who can relate πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ) my energy levels have increased, my auto immune has gotten better, and I'm learning more and more about what my stomach can and can't tolerate. FREEEEDOM is thaaa name of the game guys πŸ™ŒπŸΌ we were meant to live and be free. so shoutout to all the women who are trying to love themselves in a society that is constantly telling us not to.. and thank you @target for awesome lighting and stretchy pants that fit all shapes and sizes ✌🏼 y'all are beautiful , now believe it and shoooot - if you feel guuud in your own skin πŸ™ˆπŸ˜πŸ’πŸ» you better go smile at yoself and take a #selfie cause girl that is not conceited that is confidence ❀️ OWN IT- happy sunday πŸ’‹

First homemade breakfast in our new apartment! It's been a super busy past few days, but I'm feeling incredibly fortunate and happy to be all moved in to our new place πŸ’›

Me today. Is it Friday yet? This week is off to a rough start (yes, I know it's only Tuesday πŸ™†πŸ») I just am exhausted chasing around little Marty & also potty training & training Shiloh in general. Marty is so much easier than him tbh πŸ˜‚ Someone please tell me it's all worth it. That having a dog is the best 😜

Is it really Monday without a #belfie?πŸ˜‚ (omg did I just use that word😳)
Why do we need it to be a certain day of the week to be proud of our bodies?
We should be celebrating our bodies every day!
Why?
Because we can!
Took this photo yesterday after a full body workout with a heavy glute finisher-needless to say I'm sore!
I just got home from work and was busy all day (no time for snacks even😜) and I am EXHAUSTED after 3 intense workouts this so I'm just taking it easy tonight. Going to chill with my boyfriend and hopefully make some food or go out for a good dinner!
Resting, recharging (snacking obviously), and getting ready for another great day tomorrow! Anyone else taking it easy this Monday??

I went to the doctor last week and told her about my acid reflux, she suggested I try a round of medication and during that time cut down on my coffee and tomato consumption (my two fav things!!) .
.
So I decided to come up with something that would taste just as good as coffee, but be better for my acid reflux! Matcha Green Tea Latte! .
.
Check out my latest post about Matcha green tea and get my delicious Matcha Latte recipe that has been a huge staple for me since trying to cut down on my coffee intake! Link in my bio!

Wanna solve a 'feeling blah' kind of morning? Throw on your sneaks and go for a run, then immediately make&inhale French toast once you're finished...Well at least that's what I didπŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Homemade French toast (wishing it was on @whenpigsflybakery cinnamon raisin bread) mixed with cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Topped with raisins, walnuts, and maple syrup of courseπŸ˜› β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
