"Don't weigh yourself. Throw out the scales. Your weight doesn't matter. But here, let me weigh myself to prove to you that you don't need to" 😂 .
.

Seriously though, there was a stage where I needed to throw them out! I spent years staring at that number thinking it meant something - how beautiful, desirable, valuable, popular I was. I was "more" of those things if the number was getting smaller. I was less of them and had less value if the number got bigger 😢... I used it to measure my worth. I would tell myself "If I can just get under 60kg, all these good things will happen. I will be better". .
.
Scales can sometimes be useful if used correctly, as one form of measurement in a weight loss journey. But weight is only one part of it and not necessarily the best measurement. It has taken me a long time to realize that it's just a number and that number has zero bearing on how good or happy your life is. Emotional and psychological issues don't magically evaporate when you hit that goal number you've got in your mind. Only you can control or improve those things, through your actions and thoughts. That number doesn't tell you how kind you are, how intelligent or funny you are, how strong you are or how much you mean to your loved ones. It has no connection to your worth. So please don't give it that power 😘

F THE SCALE! Another fitness transformation pic regurgitating the same old caption but complicated story made easy- trust your body, nourish it, don't compare your body to others and most importantly F THE SCALE. I was trying so hard on the left to conform to stupid fad diets that made me do nothing but rebound, on the right, I weigh more than I ever wanted to- EVER. I always had this idea that if I weighed 110lbs or even less (that was the goal)- I would achieve my dream body. Turns out, my dream body for me- wasn't like anyone else's. It's mine. It's my healthy body accompanied with my killer genetics (accompanied with some not so killer qualities lol). Embrace it. Embrace you. Also never let anyone condescend you whether you're beginning your journey or have been going at it for a while. NEVER COMPARE YOUR CHAPTER ONE TO SOMEONES CHAPTER TWENTY. Start your journey NOW. DONT WAIT. Link to my fit guide that I'm oh so proud of (it's totally killer) is in my bio ❤️ or search up EZFitGuide.com ✊🏼

Until I developed an interest in health and fitness I thought the best way to lose weight was to eat as little as possible and I hated the thought of doing any exercise🙄 Once I accepted that weighing a certain amount wouldn't make me happy I developed a very relaxed attitude to food and put on 13kg in a short space of time. Just over two years ago I decided I wanted to lose weight in a sustainable way so I started to do cardio regularly and ate three healthy meals a day. I then lost 9kg and decided to start BBG because I realised the results I wanted couldn't come from cardio alone✨.
BBG kickstarted my love of health and fitness and is when I started this account last January🤗 After doing BBG for a year I then moved on to weightlifting and have gained 4kg so far this year after following GFG🏋🏻‍♀️ I now have a very balanced and healthy attitude towards food and exercise⚖️ I've gone from wanting to lose weight and wanting abs to wanting to gain weight and become stronger🙌🏼 .
Happy Sunday💘

So FINALLY me and my no.1 honey bee LP got to train legs together on Saturday (can I get a hallelujah 🙌🏼), so ofc we filmed the whole workout for you ready for you try out this week 💁🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Workout went as follows (going to apologise now for the doms that will ensue 🌝 & fuelled as always by our faveeee @multipowerofficial_uk cherry bomb flavour BCAA's' 😍)...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏼 Banded glute bridges (activation) 2x20
👉🏼 Banded crab walks (activation) 2x20
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏼 1. Sumo deadlifts: 3x10-15
👉🏼 2. Hip thrusts: 3x10-15
👉🏼 3. Glute focused back extension: 2x20 (notice my rounded upper back to ensure I'm hitting glutes not lower back, heels are dug in and toes turned out)
👉🏼 4A. Single leg leg-press: 2x10-15 each leg
👉🏼 4B. Lunges on spot with DBs: 2x8-12 per leg
👉🏼 5. Lying leg curl: 2x10-12 (3-1-1-0 tempo)

👉🏼7B. Goblet squat (heels elevated): 2x15-20
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then hobble home 💆🏻 AC🐨

FORGET THE SCALE🙌🏼
So this morning it was time for another check in. I got on the scale, took some pictures, got back into bed and cried (until @jesspallot low key saved my life and sanity). Until this week, I've been completely objective with the scale - a high weigh in didn't mean much and similarly a new low didn't get me that ecstatic. But today I let all that slip after putting on .6kg since Wednesday?! These pictures and weights were taken just 5 days apart, and as you can see despite what the scale says, I'm now visibly leaner than I was earlier in the week, even though I'm heavier? Our bodies work in mysterious ways that we can't always understand, which is precisely why we shouldn't judge our progress or self worth by a number on a scale.
Prep brain is well and truly in full swing now, one minute I feel good and like I have all the time in the world, the next I feel like I'm never gonna be ready in time and feel like I've made zero progress. But a huge thank you to my coach @abbyccarpenter for reminding me to trust the process and appreciate that I am giving this everything I've got. Time to get back to the gym for round 2 - posing and cardio. 6 weeks to push myself further than I ever thought possible, lets go👊🏼

✨The best thing I ever did was believe in me✨Training this week kicks off at 5.15am every morning. No excuses (maybe a little bit of whinging, but no excuses😅). Get organised, team. If you want something, get out there and work for it 👊#mondaymotivation

Happy Sunday Beauties🌟 I NEED YOUR HELP🙆🏽 I am in serious need of new workout music so if you have any suggestions please do share below👇🏽 thaaaanks🙏🏽
Outfit: @icaniwill
Discount code: shalom10😏

I've trained so consistently over the last couple of weeks and I feel amaaaazing 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 This is exactly what I needed and it's so easy for me to go to the gym now that I'm used to it being in my routine.
-
The hardest part it coming back after a break, those first few weeks of training are difficult because you're at your weakest and everything hurts ALL. THE. TIME. But once you push past that it's so worth it, I look forward to my sessions and after so excited when I can learn more and more 🤓🤓🤓
-
I still consider myself a weightlifting newbie and I'm just figuring everything out as I go, the most important thing is just to START. That's all you need to do to be amazing and everything else will follow 💛💛💛

YAY as of today I'm the heaviest I've ever been in my life! 🎉🎊🎉 Why is this a good thing???? Because SCREW THE SCALE, it legitimately means nothing. It has never reflected my healthiness or fitness level AT ALL. Right now is the best I've ever felt mentally and the strongest I've ever been 🤗🤗🤗 Here's to more gains babes! 💕💕💕

If you are persistent, you will get it. If you are consistent, you will keep it.

Good Morning Early bird gets the worm so get your ass up!! Lol #mondaysbelike #mondaymorning #mondays

To the girl who used to live by the scale 🙈I'm so glad you overcame that obstacle.
.
It feels good to focus on #strength and #health
.
It's freed up so much time inside my head not obsessing over a number ❌
.
It feels amazing!🙌🏻

I had my alarm set for 5 am with every intention of starting day 1/21 this morning. After struggling to fall asleep (thanks medication 🙄), waking up several times to pretty bad coughing fits, I threw in the towel and accepted my body just wanted more rest. Mark my words, a slow and modified day 1 will be happening yet today! .

Fact, truth, and because of this...do you boo boo✌🏼❤️ #justdoyou #worryaboutyourownshit

Today was my first day back to workouts since vacation....I felt like a beginner.

Of course I'm not but I still remember that feeling.... ➡ The workouts were challenging.
➡ I could only put forth max effort for about 45 seconds an exercise.
➡ I didn't have perfect form.
➡ I used lighter weights.

But I also remember this....I was all heart 💖 There was something inside me that KNEW I could push through any physical obstacle with mental strength. And before I knew it, my physical strength was carrying me through.

Every setback is a set up for a comeback 👊

g̰̃õ̰õ̰d̰̃ m̰̃õ̰r̰̃ñ̰ḭ̃ñ̰g̰̃/ por lo que verán soy adicta a todo aquello que tenga t̰̃ḛ̃ m̰̃ã̰t̰̃c̰̃h̰̃ã̰, y quería compartir con ustedes todos los beneficios para la salud del mismo. • El té matcha calma y relaja, mejora nuestro estado de ánimo y ayuda en la concentración. Matcha es rico en L-teanina un aminoácido que promueve un estado de relajación y bienestar. • Un mayor consumo de té verde se asocia con una menor prevalencia de deterioro cognitivo en los seres humanos. El consumo regular de té matcha mejora el estado de ánimo, la memoria, y promueve una mejor concentración.
• El té verde matcha es un sustituto ideal para el café. Aunque contiene cafeína las propiedades relajantes de la L-teanina actúan como contrapeso a los efectos "nerviosos" de la cafeína. La cafeína en el matcha se asimila y se absorbe muy lentamente (de 6 a 8 horas), sin aumentos de azúcar en sangre, aumento de la insulina, o liberación de la hormona del estrés cortisol, como ocurre con la cafeína del café. Se reduce de esta manera el estrés sobre las glándulas suprarrenales.
• El poder antioxidante del te matcha es espectacular. Los antioxidantes son compuestos naturales químicos que previenen el envejecimiento y las enfermedades crónicas. Utilizando el método de prueba conocido como ORAC (capacidad de absorción de radicales de oxígeno) el te matcha posee 1.300 unidades por gramo, unas veinte veces más que las granadas o arándanos por ejemplo.
• Rico en las potentes catequinas una clase de antioxidantes conocidos por su efecto quema grasas, prevenir la artritis y efectivas para combatir el cáncer.
• Las catequinas del té matcha han demostrado tener propiedades antibióticas que promueven la salud en general y fortalecen el sistema inmunológico. Entre tantos otros, los invito a que lo prueben como Té o en otra de las tantas variantes que te permite es producto increíble

Hi Babes💁Happy Monday! How many of you are planning to watch the #SolarEclipse today??🌗I wanted to take just a ⏱to reintroduce myself. Jamie C aka JC here 👋. Wife/Mom/Nurse Anesthetist are just a few of the titles that I have. I am happily married to the hardest working man I know! When we married he had a 10 year old son (Barry) and my daughter (Courtney) was 3! I had just graduated nursing school and let me just say nursing school as a single mom with a toddler😬, well it wasn't easy. One thing my husband and I always taught our children is that you are capable of anything you set your mind to AND are willing to work for. Barry has graduated from medical school and is now a radiology resident; he and his wife, Allison, have yet to make me a Grandma 🤗 and I can't say I'm not happy about that for now! Courtney is starting her Junior year of college and is also a pre med major.
I have been a nurse for 17 years and a #crna for 7. I started this account for fun when my daughter started college to help give me something else to focus on and keep me accountable. I never imagined what would become of it but I am so grateful for the friendships we have made. JB and I get along so well because we both have a very competitive nature and we use that to fuel each other. If I could think of one thing that I've learned over the past few years is that with strength comes confidence, and that my friends, is life changing. What is something that you have learned about yourself recently?? Let us know👇👇 #whoareyou

"Great things never came from comfort zones." Push you mind, push your body outside of the bubble of comfort you're in!! We get into routines, our brains create pathways to make these actions and thoughts the default path. So we just do it, over and over and over. Whether it's the snacks we choose, our workout routine, or how we think and respond to situations.
We become complacent. We stop growing. We stand still. When you stop moving forward, you move backward. You may not even realize it.
So do something outside of your normal routine. Choose something different to eat. Do a new type of fitness or activity. Take a new path. Challenge your thoughts and see if there are other ways to view a situation that comes up.
Outside the comfort zone is where the good stuff happens ✌️ On that note, day 1 of my 3 week home yoga challenge is in the books!! ✅

Yes, Monday is officially in the bag!! 💪 It always feels good to get that first workout of the week ticked off, because it seems to set me up for a great week ahead.
-
Today I managed a full body Jillian Michaels workout, but I still kept the intensity to low because I'm still not at 100%.
-
Also, shock horror guys, I didn't count macros today 😱 In fact I haven't counted for about two weeks now, whilst I was sick. I plan on taking a few weeks break from macros, and if by the end of those two weeks I feel like I'm eating well enough intuitively, then I'll probably give it a rest for a while.
-
Anyway, I'm off to put my feet up for the night! Hope you've had a brilliant and productive Monday everyone ✌️💚

I was going to write an inspirational quote with this.....but to be honest today was spent on the couch in trackies with my little baby who is sick.... so lots of cuddles and no exercise 🙅 #mumlife #keepingitreal
But on another note, I'm slightly addicted to active wear 💜😬

Hope you all had a great Monday!!
