MOST RECENT

It’s almost on a daily basis. I’m not overly religious because I don’t have to advertise a relationship with God for validation, He and I know my faith, but on days like today I gotta sit back and admire how far my life has come, and I have God to thank. I didn’t deserve half the things I have been given but I’m very loved and I see that now, and for that im thankful. #motivation#faith#hope#blessed#blessingsonblessings#progress#goals#lifeprogress#whateverittakes#bodybuilder#bodybuilding#notallprogressisphysical#ifbb#npc#godlovesme#happycamper#dadbod#dadlife#familyiseverything

THEN ➡️ NOW

boy oh boy has my life changed!
Working out has always been an outlet for me.
When I’m at the gym:
🌻Anxiety 0
🌻Stress 0
🌻Worries 0
It’s amazing to look back and see what fitness has done to me physically, but I wish for everyone to experience the mentality shift that came along with it.

I have more peace in my day to day.
I have more patience then ever before.
I truly found happiness in myself.

If you’re just starting out KEEP GOING.
Don’t give up.
Your future self won’t be able to thank you enough ❤️

You’re not going to master the rest of your fitness journey in one day.
Focus on mastering THIS DAY, & keep doing that everyday.

If fitness has changed your life
RAISE YOUR HAND ⬇️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏾‍♂️

Quick question- when was the last time YOU did something for the FIRST time?

#DYK: New experiences stimulate the brain to produce dopamine as you go into problem-solving mode. Dopamine is essential for maintaining our mental health. It’s actually been proven that major depression is associated with a state of reduced dopamine transmission. •
Last month, I had the honor to be asked to record my very first podcast with @fitnessbreakroom hosted by the wonderful @spogue86 .
Even though I was nervous to talk about myself, I did it. And surprisingly, enjoyed it. (Thanks Sam!)

What does FREEDOM mean to you?

Today we celebrate freedom as a country and that we should all be thankful for. 🇺🇸Today is also a good day to ask yourself what freedom means to YOU.

A few years ago, a holiday like today would have caused me major anxiety because of the temptation everywhere to steer off my regimented diet and eating schedule. If I couldn’t weigh it or track it, I couldn’t eat it- no exceptions to the rule.

Sometime in the last 12 months, I was hit with an epiphany.
I realized I was massively unhappy living my life with these confinements and “rules” I made for myself. •
I realized I wasn’t FREE to live my life the way I actually WANTED. I was living my life according to how I THOUGHT I had to live it, mostly out of fear.
And fear of what?
Gaining weight?
Losing control?
All irrational but valid feelings.
It took practice and time, but I was eventually able to squash my fears and take control back in my life.

I’ve been enjoying intuitive eating for almost a year now.
I have a healthy relationship with food.
But most importantly, I have the freedom to choose what I want to eat and not have the imminent worry or pressure to track it and “fit it into my macros.”

This is my friendly reminder to you that our health and fitness journey should enhance and add value to our lives, not stress. •
If you are at all anxious about hitting the parties today to celebrate the holiday, remember this:
One day of going off your diet won’t make a difference in the grand scheme of things.
There is zero need to feel guilty about enjoying yourself and indulging.
Life’s too short to not be living it the way you CHOOSE to.
Fortunately for us, we have the freedom to decide what that means. •
Happy 4th of July! 🇺🇸❤️

Our words powerful, and they have consequences. #keepitshut #book this book has been very convicting already, I have failed so many times at this and I truly desire to break the old bad habits. How true it is that we tend to treat stranger so much nicer than we do those closest to us and hurt the ones we love. Choose wisely. @karenehman #goodread #morningread #wordshavepower #mylifeontherun #thinkdifferently #actdifferently #📖#notallprogressisphysical #explore #runningoncoffee #coffee #runwithit #wheresmycoffee #imsorry #love

Believe you can do it! Resistance bands workout and 30 minute spin session and it all felt so good 💪🏽 #notallprogressisphysical #womenrunning #irunthisbody #run #spinsession #inspiringwomenrunners #ihavearunnersbody #nikewomen #justdoit #michaeljordan #quote #beinspired #strengthtraining #running

#transformationtuesday .
The beach is going to get the body I bring to it ⬅️ a movement I can support #thanksig .
.
I’ve learned restriction only facilitates short term goals #notinterested. Continuing to eat my ‘normal’ and doing what feels good from a training perspective. I could cut carbs and up protein, but the minute I enjoy myself in 🇲🇽, I’ll hold water and see weight gain 🤷🏼‍♀️ #nothanks. .
.
So mentally, I’m feeling good. Physically, I’m pumped. Emotionally, I’m full. Let’s do this.
.
Mental progress is still progress. I’m little, but I like my size and I’m ok not showing out with huge muscles. Some might even say...do you even lift 😂. I do. I also eat carbs. #secretsout

✌🏼 12 days out. .

Sweaty Sunday morning 💦🌨lightly raining outside, I enjoy this song for cardio at 4:30am in the dark on my max trainer warming up for some heavy lifting!! #homegym #cardio #heavyweights #fitness #basementlife #irontherapy #ironaddict #transformforlife #notallprogressisphysical

Getting ready for my challenge!!! Summer won’t expect me this year, because I always tell myself I’m going to be confident and comfortable in my swimsuit because I’m going to work for it and I never quite get there, because I don’t do what I promised myself I would. .
.
Well this year, this time, I’m going to freaking show summer what’s up!! I’ve been putting in work and results are finally showing. You gotta start from within. When you work on your soul, and you put in consistency and dedication, that’s when results will come. Not until then.

Would you believe this photo was taken exactly a year ago?? Yes, April 2017. And. I. Look. The. Exact. Same. (Despite currently having a little extra pudge on my stomach area). It’s kind of discouraging when you find old pictures and don’t see any changes in your physique despite going through a cut and a bulk since this was taken but in the whole topic of my constant journey towards self love I’ve decided to think of the positive changes that have happened instead of focusing on what hasn’t. So some things that have changed between April 2017 > March 2018 :
🐰I can squat 92.5kg 1RM compared to barely hitting 80kg
🐰I can eat a hell of a lot more food now and still maintain the same physique
🐰I weigh 5kg heavier now even though as I said, I still look the same .
Not all progress is visual progress. Remind yourself of this when you start to compare yourself to old pictures and feel down because you see no difference and keep working hard for what you want 👊🏼

I don’t have a personal trainer at the moment .. just that voice inside of me telling me if I stop now, I might never start again... go workout.. you can endure much much more than you think you can.. 😉😉😉 #motivationtuesday #transformationtuesday #beastmode #beasttobeautymode #girlswithmuscle #squatsfordays #strongisthenewbeautiful #strongwomen #nevergiveup #neverstopsmiling #notallprogressisphysical #fitgirls #fitnessinspiration #livetoinspire #inspiredlife #teamedgeathlete @teamedge1 #npcbikiniathlete #npcbikinimasters #npcwestcoastclassic @npcwestcoast photo by the badassy @tonymandarich 🙌🏻 #lornajane #lornajanegear #nike #nikejunkieforlife

I'm still not where I wanna be, but I'm in the best shape I've ever been in, physically and mentally. A year ago you wouldn't have caught me dead in crop tops at the gym, or anywhere for that matter because I was so damn self conscious. But I'm damn proud of where I'm at now so fuck it 🤷🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♀️💪🏼
