Reeses + cookie dough = the meaning of LIFE ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ Anyone else obsessed?!??!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ

Like most people, I was initially drawn to flexible dieting because of the promise that I could eat foods I loved while losing weight, which to me was mind blowing at the time. So I slowly moved away from a "clean eating" approach and began tracking my macros. I did what most do and found an online calculator where I plugged in my information and chose the "fat loss" option. And so the most miserable, food obsessed, summer of my life began. I was eating 1600 calories and I remember having little to no energy and going to bed every night still hungry, wishing it could be morning already so I could eat again. I obsessed over things like whether I should track the sugar alcohols from the gum I chewed, opted out of a lot of food my family enjoyed, made passive aggressive comments about their "unhealthy" choices, and gave myself zero flexibility.

I had begun tracking my intake to allow myself more flexibility, but instead found myself incredibly restricted. I was always searching for ways to make things "macro friendly," and I would macro hoard all day to fit donuts or ice cream into my calorie allotment. After that initial summer, I learned that I wasnโ€™t eating enough, and raised my intake. However, it still wasnโ€™t enough and I continued to be very strict with hitting my macro targets. If I went over by a few grams, I considered that day a failure ended up eating everything in sight. These cycles of being "on track" aka cutting and bingeing continued for about two years, the entire time seeing little to no progress in my physique.

It wasnโ€™t until I realized that a drastic cut wasnโ€™t the right option for me that I found a maintainable lifestyle and a body I feel confident in. Everyone in the fitness industry seems to be perpetually cutting. So that's what I thought I had to do. But once I changed my approach, and became okay with progress being a lot slower, I began to notice changes.

Good morning guys! Happy #FlexFriday ๐Ÿค— Hope ya don't mind that I'm coming at ya with another sweaty post workout selfie ๐Ÿ˜… #TwelveDaysOut and there's no time for error, I've been leaving everything I've got left in me at the gym! Coach keeps bumping my food intake up, which has given me so much energy and strength and I've gotta say... I LLLLLLOVE IT! Yesterday I was able to put up 145 on front squats for a set of ten, like whattttt?! That's better weight than I was moving in my off season! #NotComplaining For those of you who don't know, I've #ReverseDieted into all of my shows this season and it has been absolutely amazing. Seriously, not only does the extra carbs and fats improve my performance in the gym, but it's actually made my physique look even better! My muscles are filling out, I'm looking much tighter, and my weight has even dropped a little- it's insane, my metabolism is just on ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ But it's time to roll out of bed, cause I've got another check in with the boss man today, so ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿฝ for more carbs ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ #seeyoulaterleaner #resultsaretypical #12daysout #gimmealldacarbs #reversedieting

SHOULD YOU EXERCISE DURING RECOVERY FROM AN EATING DISORDER?
-
I have been asked a lot recently whether I was 'allowed' to exercise during my recovery, and whether I should even be exercising now.
-
To be honest; this is a loaded question; and no answer I give is going to be received well by everyone.
-
For me, exercise was (and continues to be) an empowering way for me to honour my body, gain strength, become fitter and improve my self confidence and general health.
-
Physically, exercise has helped me build up my bone density again and put on weight. Mentally, it's been an incredible outlet for me and a means through which I've learned to love my body and what it's capable of.
-
That being said, i'm still aware that it's a behaviour I adopted to control and manipulate my body - just like restricting my intake. Even now, my exercise regime can easily turn compulsive, obsessive and self-destructive. I can abuse it and I can risk undoing all the hard work I've done to build my health back up.
-
It's a very fine line for me, and I'm extremely cautious and self-aware of the role exercise plays in my recovery process to this day. I would never (and never did) drop exercising all together, but I wouldn't suggest that for everyone. I've had to learn the hard way what works for me, and what's truly beneficial for my long-term health. I can really only suggest that you do the same.
-
At the end of the day, whether or not you should exercise is entirely up to YOU and your doctor to decide; and will be entirely dependent on the nature of your eating disorder and the stage of recovery you're fighting through.
-
It's an extremely personal battle and a journey that you'll experience different to anyone else - so please don't look solely to people like me for an answer or question me on the route I'm taking. We're in this fight together, but we need to fight it using our own tactics โœŒ๐Ÿป.

Oh hi๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ So I kind of didn't realize that I never made a post announcing that I'm not doing CPU Centrals, and then today everyone's messaging me asking where I am๐Ÿ˜‚ Yeah I decided not to do centrals (after paying registration fee๐Ÿ˜•) because I decided I'm not doing Nationals, so I had negative desire to go compete at centrals when there is no point๐Ÿ™ƒ I wasn't listening to my heart, and my heart currently is saying that competing isn't the best thing for me right now. I'm still gonna be at OPA provincials in September, but that will probably be my last meet for a while, at least until I get that spark back. That being said, best of luck to everyone competing at Centrals this weekend!!! โšช๏ธโšช๏ธโšช๏ธโค๏ธ

I used to go to the gym, step on the treadmill. Run for over an hour. Leave. See no results. Repeat.
.
I did that for years because I didn't know what else to do. I was intimidated and scared to lift weights.
.
Today I walk into the gym, rock my lifting session, do cardio SOMETIMES and walk out knowing I ๐Ÿ”ฅCRUSHED๐Ÿ”ฅ my workout.
.
Even though the two pics aren't a huge difference, I actually weigh 20lbs MORE in the second. The scale means SHIT. I was starving myself and killing myself with cardio in the first.
.

My transformation is far from just physical and the most amazing thing is it never has to end! I'm really excited to share this YouTube video with you because right now I'm at such a good place in my life and within myself.

MOST RECENT

Red Velvet Protein French Toast, topped with @yoproau strawberry yoghurt and berries ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿž
The yoghurt consistency was sooo light and fluffy, oh boy ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Another day, another #fooddiary in the books. This is most of what I ate today, minus a snack and a small preworkout fix ๐Ÿ˜œ. Tonight #squats and accessory work went splendid, even more so since it's been a week since I actually had the bar on my back. Worked up to 215lb 7x3, focusing on good form/technique, all while hitting some decent volume. I'm leaving for Colorado in 3 weeks with a friend and I won't have access to a gym during those few days, but I'm okay with that. We'll be doing plenty of other things that constitute as staying active, including some downtime outdoors, which is what I'm most excited about ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป. So, I'm not starting any more programming until after I get back, since consistency is key for progress. Now, let's discuss these photos:
1) #breakfast - an egg white #omelette filled with fat free feta cheese and a side of toast with either avocado spread or double protein cream cheese & sugar free grape ๐Ÿ‡ jam.
2) #lunch - basically, its a deconstructed sloppy joe (extra lean ground beef, reduced sugar ketchup, sugar free maple brown @ghughessugarfree BBQ sauce, and Sriracha mustard) with a side of steamed sour cream and onion potatoes. Sometimes, you just gotta eat the #meatandpotatoes ๐Ÿ˜‰.
3) #postworkout #dinner - zucchini noodle "spaghetti" with sliced Italian turkey sausage and a toasted mini @stonefirenaan ancient grain naan.
4) #macrocap - 1.5 servings of @dreyers Tollhouse Oatmeal Chocolate Chip #cookiedough #icecream topped with @buffbake pumpkin spice #peanutbutter and some maple pumpkin butter because, well, I'm a basic bitch all year long ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ!

After yesterday's KILLER leg day, I thought today I'd give the arms and shoulders a run for their money. My hands are still shaky, and the...wait for it.....15 MINUTE core blast at the end is literally the BESTโ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸผI'm always surprised at how awesome a workout boxing is. If you people need to relieve some stress, get in a good sweat, or just change up your fitness routine - I'm telling you boxing/kickboxing is where it's at. And on some days, you just need to punch it out ๐ŸฅŠ๐ŸฅŠ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ Shoes: @adidas Ultra Boost Outfit: @Lululemon Workout : @titleboxingclubcary @titleboxing #eatclean#fitnessmotivation#strong#sixpack#fitnessblog#girlswholift#picoftheday#paleo#tiuteam#bbg#booty#bodygoals#bestself#strongnotskinny#abs#avatarnutrition#npcbikini#nutrition#flexibledieting#instagood#fatloss#nofilter#fitspiration#otfnation#s2bm#bodybuilding#npc#macros#reversedieting#iifym

Snack: Oatmeal, apple pie filling, log cabin syrup, and craisins. Elevating the basics with a few tasty additions makes it simple to track and delicious to eat. Measure and manage FTW. ๐Ÿ˜Š- @xjamathonx

There is something different about #reversedieting this time. I plan my meals ahead of time, but if other plans happen to come my way, I try to fit them in. If that involves eating a sheet cake, or a pizza, or a bowl of pasta, I can do that and adjust the qty or ingredients. I planned to have spaghetti for dinner tonight, but my friend called me and told me she wants pizza. I went ahead and had a whole pizza, but I tweaked it a little. Instead of going to our usual place where they drench the pizza dough in oil, I went to another authentic place. No mozzarella in mine, but I added parmesan, gorgonzola and feta cheese in tiny quantities to flavor the pizza, and it turned out really good ๐Ÿ˜Š. Putting flexible back into #flexibledieting.

Dinner: Flank steak with Alexia 98% fat free french fries and corn with mushrooms. Steak and fries on plan? You betcha! Pretty easy to find balance when you opt for selections that are more in line with your goals for the day. In this case a leaner steak and reduced fat fries fit my day rather nicely. Balance. ๐Ÿ˜Š- @xjamathonx

Peak Weekโ†”๏ธImprovement Season.
8 weeks post show today.
On the left I am in a caloric deficit, much tanner, and about to win my NQ show this past June. I trained 20 weeks during that prep for my first bikini season.
On the right I am in the middle of my reverse diet, have had a few days where I eat whatever I feel like but primarily staying on my macros, and lifting heavy to gain more muscle. This is what I consider a very successful reverse diet especially because it is my first time and I haven't been perfect. I'm still only up 5 lbs from show day and we've continued to increase my carbs over the last few weeks. I haven't done abs in about 5 days due to female fun and work related circumstances but my waist stays tight ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ My coach @unrivaledphysiques and I took conditioning to the next level during training which has really paid off๐Ÿ’ฏ
I've had very little fat gain which makes me a happy girl because I love being lean. I have learned so much about myself mentally and physically since January 2, through experience and working with my coach. I cannot wait until we do another prep from start to finish and I can bring everything I've gained intelligence wise to the table so that we can light that stage on fire again. #countdown #dreamteam

Something that I have not recently discussed is my school situation. For those of who have followed for some time know that last year, I made a YouTube video about possibly dropping out of college...I was pretty lost, didn't have a "why" as to why I actually would, but things have changed
-
2017 has been a whirlwind of emotions. I've taken a lot of risks. Financial risk. Personal risk. Physical risk. You get the point
-
The biggest risk I took was believing in myself & betting on myself and my business. I've decided to not go back to school currently, but I will graduate one day. I took the bet of knowing I found something I enjoy and wake up every morning excited to do despite that being a one-woman team is not exactly the easiest
-
Back in April, I started my business. Since then, it has done way better than I thought it would do. I say this out of confidence because that's the number one thing that has gotten me to where I am since the day I took on my first client
-
It's cliche, but the only person who can stand in way of you is your mindset. I personally am a huge over thinker. I worry about the details rather than keeping everything simple, which is how life probably should be doneb
-
If you are in a rut or confused about what you want. It's 200% normal, but why not test it out? Why sit there with the "what if?". Although 2017 started off with a lot of doubt & uncertainty, I think it has slowly transitioned into a year of saying "yes" rather than "no", to being spontaneous instead of thinking about the consequences, to just finding myself a bit more. I encourage you all to do just that
-
I want to thank you for always allowing me to speak my crazy mind, inspiring me, and making me smile. Although I may just take some pictures of food, there's more behind it for me. I'm here to give value first and foremost. I'm here to help whether answering questions or being someone you can just chat with
