๐Ÿ’• lovely transformation via @stefkjoson

I was never overweight when I started this fitness journey. I had had a baby months before this picture on the left and my body had changed and although I stayed active I really was not physically that in shape. I was fixated on reaching a number on the scale and Iโ€™m totally over that mindset. I weigh more now than I did 2 years ago when I started this & thatโ€™s just from gaining muscle.
I wonโ€™t deny that I am happy with how my body has changed over the two years but more than anything Iโ€™m proud of myself for sticking to something. Iโ€™m in the best shape of my life at 34 after having Macy in my 30s! Itโ€™s funny to think the things I used to dread I actually look forward to now (commandos, etc ๐Ÿคฃ). I know that saying is so true- if it doesnโ€™t challenge you it wonโ€™t change you. So hang in there and STICK WITH IT! .
November 2nd is our second #kaylaversary and I have no regrets!
Although I know I will hear โ€œI prefer the beforeโ€ at least once and thatโ€™s ok. I know the benefits of exercise and living a healthy lifestyle go way beyond what you see on the outside.

#100strong #screwthescale #bbgprogress #12weekchallenge

MAKING YOUR OWN JOURNEY - I remember taking this photo last year after 6mos of doing BBG with such a happy heart. I smiled, flexing my arms as I was so proud of the changes Iโ€™d made not just physically but down to the very way I appreciated and viewed myself more positively. I was tremendously happy but at the same time a part of me wanted more and I was eager to challenge myself with something new. I started lifting 1-2x/week giving strength training a test drive, learning all about it through all possible avenues. Was I scared? Heck yeah. I canโ€™t even begin to talk about the fear & self consciousness I had when I started ๐Ÿ˜ However slowly but surely I found myself falling in love with the whole process, hating how hard it seemed but loving every bit of it when I succeeded โ˜บ๏ธ Fast forward to today where I lift 4-5x/week and very much enjoy the grind ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
____
What Iโ€™m trying to say is, enjoy the uniqueness of your own journey ๐Ÿ’— There will always be someone whoโ€™s stronger, faster, leaner or has more gains, but to be honest none of that really matters just as long as at the end of the day youโ€™re doing what you love, one that excites you and something youโ€™re doing for YOURSELF. I love what I do and nothing motivates me more than knowing that Iโ€™m capable of achieving more ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป NOW GO MAKE THOSE GAINS!! Have a lovely Tuesday everyone!! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

Let Our Differences Unite Us.
.
Hereโ€™s to celebrating our imperfectly perfect bodies and learning to love ourselves in a world that keeps trying to tell us weโ€™re not good enough ๐Ÿ‘Š. .
.
These are 9 women from different parts of the world, who are all different ages, shapes and sizes. Who all have different professions and all have vastly different life experience. Who are all beautiful, intelligent, kind, STRONG and inspire me everyday. .

Remember, empowered women, empower women. Who are YOU going to lift up today? #empoweringwomen #togetherwearestrong

Hi, it's me. I have been struggling lately....a lot. One thing that took me a long time to figure out is that you don't have to have days that are 100% good or days that are 100% bad. You can feel down and still actively work to empower yourself and end it having a day that may not feel ๐Ÿ’ฏ, but still isn't a 0. Here's what I do when I am hurting or feeling out of control:
1. Pray- bc I believe God is bigger than my problems and for me, that's where I always start. No matter what religion/faith/walk of life you practice, believing in something bigger than yourself can really help put everything into perspective.
2. Make a list of 10 things that make me feel empowered. Examples: get a car wash (lol), paint my nails, write a thank you card, vacuum (lol again), workout. And then I do the list.
3. Listen intently to my body. Some days when I'm feeling down, I'll go to the gym and feel weak and not wanting to have a heavy legs day. So- I listen. And I'll maybe do a long walk on the treadmill and then a light full body day. I listen to what I need to support what I'm feeling.
4. Talk about it/journal about it. Honestly this is probably the hardest step for me because my super power is probably keeping face and acting like every things great when I'm hurting. And so actually like texting someone or talking to someone and being like "man, I'm having a tough day today." Or just write it. It helps. F'real.
5. Set myself up for a better day tomorrow. Prep a lunch, lay out my clothes & get a good nights sleep. It's easy to have multiple "bad days" in a row and spiral towards that negativity, so let yourself feel what you're feeling but do your best to get tomorrow ready to be great.
6. Affirmations, fam. I am a huge believer, in them. Spend ONE minute reminding yourself who you are and dwelling in truth.
7. Listen to an empowering playlist, podcast or read an uplifting book.
8. Give love. Be kind to someone. Smile at a stranger. Donate to a good cause. Fill your heart up by giving.
9. Find gratitude in the tough days & rejoice in the fact that it's okay to be not okay. And that it will, someday, all be okay. ๐ŸŒป โค๏ธ

NEW on the blog: "What a Successful Diet Doesn't Look Like". - go read, link in profile!

##

A few days ago, I talked to someone who was desperate to lose weight.. She said that she had actually found a great diet that helped her to lose a lot of weight, and she looked awesome when she did it! But, as good a she looked, she couldn't sleep, was always brain-foggy, forget her commitments and meetings... to the point where her co-workers asked her to eat more because they realized that she wasn't able to do her work anymore ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ก ##

How do you measure the success of a diet? The first answer would be, of course, by how much weight you lost. But I don't think that's the only answer. If your health suffers, what's the point of losing those lbs? ๐Ÿค”Was this diet really successful if it didn't last?

##

I believe that losing fat only makes sense if you gain health in the process. And there are people whose health gets better when they lose some weight.
##

But if the diet makes you feel worse, like this lady's experience was, then this diet wasn't successful. If, as a result of dieting, you ended up with #hypothalamicamenorrhea, your diet wasn't successful either. If your health is compromised in any way, instead of getting better, then it wasn't a good diet.

Okay I ate this for bfast 3 days in arrow so I tried(?) to make it aesthetic to post lol.
Okay I ate this for bfast 3 days in arrow so I tried(?) to make it aesthetic to post lol.

Logic behind the bfast:
โ–ซ๏ธBanana- complex carb rich in B6, potassium & fiber โ–ซ๏ธPlain Greek yogurt- 1 cup = 20 G protein
โ–ซ๏ธPeanut butter- plant based, healthy fat
โ–ซ๏ธChoc special k- low cal topping .
The formula for any healthy meal, especially when trying to control body fat, is a complex carb + protein + healthy fat.
I try to structure all meals around this concept, with my pre workout meal being a little extra high in carbs

Super short post to let you know that:
1. Heavy compound lifts such as squats, deadlifts and shoulder presses will work your six pack ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
2. HOWEVER, you also need to target your abs directly with both HIGH REP and LOW REP moves. This will work the greatest number of muscle fibres in the most effective and effective way ๐Ÿค—
3. High reps place less resistance on your abs, so they can be performed in a greater number and work your abs thoroughly (think Swiss ball plank toe tap, garhammer raises, v sits etc).๐Ÿ’ฅ
4. Low reps place greater resistance on abs, so each rep is far harder (roll outs) โญ๏ธ
5. Never do abs on consecutive sessions (leave one workout between core moves ๐Ÿ”ฅ
โ€ข
The video shows low rep roll outs and high rep Swiss ball plank to toe taps. โ€ข
I'MA NEED AN INSTABOYF TO VIDEO ME DOING IT PROPERLY AT ALL THOSE SEXY ANGLES, BUT YA GET THE IDEA๐Ÿ’ก โ€ข
PS if you do this and still can't see your abs, you have some body fat to get rid of (see my fat burning posts below) ๐Ÿ‘€

AUGUST 2016 - OCTOBER 2017
Thatโ€™s an entire year of leg days and eating 918263739 calories ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ
Change takes time and muscle gains takes food ๐Ÿž๐Ÿš๐Ÿฝ So if youโ€™re not seeing the progress you want, and youโ€™re not losing weight or gaining weight or whatever, then ask yourself:
1. Have you given it enough time? A few weeks isnโ€™t really long enough to know if something is working for your body. CONSISTENCY is key here.
2. Are you eating enough? To build up something that wasnโ€™t there, youโ€™re obviously going to have to ADD something. And for me, I added lots of eggs, wholemeal wraps, brown rice, vegetables, oats etc.
3. Do you LOVE your workouts? If youโ€™re demotivated and inconsistent itโ€™s probably because youโ€™re not enjoying what you do, or youโ€™re doing it for the wrong reasons!
-
I was happy with my body in the first picture and Iโ€™m happy with my body now! But my goals changed and along with that I changed my routine. You have to embrace new and difficult experiences if you want to see different results. If something isnโ€™t working, then fix it! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“
