#strongtothefinish2017

MOST RECENT

Doing a #tbt to my very first IG post. I created this page a year ago, and I never thought I would be where I’m at now. Sharing my journey has helped me stay on track and keep me motivated. So grateful for the amount of amazing people I have met this past year; can’t wait to see what’s ahead 💕✨ • • • • • • • • •

I decided with starting a new 12 week program next week, Revive with @livfitstudio and signing up for @popeyessupplements #strongtothefinish2017 transformation contest, I wanted to create a separate page from my personal one to post all about fitness. I'm hoping this page will help me stay on track and hold me accountable. Everyone has to start somewhere, and after falling down so many times, it's my turn to get back up #thetimeisnow #myturn #ideserveit #health #fitness #nutrition #nextstep #accountability

One year ago I signed on with @teamg_fit and started my transformation with @aaguzzi. I'm pretty proud of my year and wanted share a bit of where it started and just a tiny bit of what I learned along the way.
My initial thought was to participate in the Popeyes Strong for Life Challenge. I knew I'd gained a fair bit of weight. Had been through the challenge of my spouse battling cancer (and kicking it's ass!!) and trying to get life back on track again; we had a social planned for spring, I was turning 40 in October and was marrying my soulmate in Feb 2018. I wanted to be in the best shape of my life. Well I started at 26% body fat...a deflating realization placed squarely in front of me.
So we got to work.
Was it linear? Nope (more in future posts) What I did learn was this process was about consistency. Nothing drastic, but steady. Regular, hard workouts and steady clean eating.
I "paused" a bit over summer and resumed in October to get to my final goal of 8%. Nailed it just in time to head off to Jamaica for a great vacation and getting married!!! I want to express all my thanks to coach Guzzi, the G-Fit family and my wife @billiefontaine for all the love encouragement.
Looking forward to seeing what happens in the next 55 weeks 😉

Way back Wednesday! It was this time last year that I entered the Popeyes Strong to the Finish, powered by MuscleTech. When I entered, I had NO clue that I would take home the grand prize for 🇨🇦! The last year has been one of the best years of my life. I’ve grown so much as a person, and I’ve met so many people along the way. I feel very blessed to have had this experience. It’s a shame the contest is not running this year 👎🏼 #fit #fitness #fitfam #fitspo #gym #workout #photoshoot #weightloss #bodybuilding #popeyessupplements #strongtothefinish2017 #muscletech #happy #dedication #inspiration #motivation #friends #health

#tbt to last year when I got in good enough shape to enter @popeyessupplements #strongtothefinish2017 contest. This was my #beforeandafterweightloss
8 months of #struggles have weighed heavily #mentally and #physically (just ask the scale 😅). Now I start from scratch. This is about being #myownmotivator and finding my own #strength
I will bare it all with #nohumility and #noshame because #fuckthehaters

#tbt to July 2017 when I had the opportunity to shoot with @muscletech for winning first place in #strongtothefinish2017 . I am determined to achieve new goals for 2018 and come out stronger than ever! Thanks @sweetcheeksmua for getting me all dolled up 💋 #fit #fitness #fitfam #fitspo #health #bodybuilding #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #gym #workout #motivation #determination #throwbackthursday

So I haven't been on IG as much recently because I've been kind of sad with my progress or lack of progress. If you've been following me for a bit you might know I participated in #strongtothefinish2017, well when that ended in May, so did the way I was eating. I knew I couldn't sustain on no/low carbs and chicken and Brussel sprouts, actually the thought of skinless, boneless chicken breast makes me want to gag 🤢. Anyways, but I didn't come out of it the right way and gained back the 20 pounds I had lost. Lately, I'm going back and forth, one day I can be totally happy with the progress I have made from being 253 pounds and the next day I feel like I'm 253 pounds again. On Saturday I had my husband take pictures of me at 195lbs, the same weight I was in February, to see if I am back at that point. It makes me a bit happier to know that I have way more knowledge than I did in February and in the pictures I see more definition now, it doesn't look like much of a change but at this time if I'm seeing a bit, I'm a little happier seeing that and makes me want to try and push forward for more results. I'm just trying to focus on my work outs and eating a way that will be sustainable for life, not a quick fix but a way that I will be happy to eat and eventually maintain. If you read this whole thing, you're the best! 😘 and for those who didn't, I never liked you anyways 🖕🏻.

Throwback Thursday to my photoshoot with @muscletech ! Hair and makeup done by the talented @sweetcheeksmua 💄reminiscing on times I felt in control and strong! It's funny how when you're in the moment, you don't realize what you actually have. I remember during the shoot, I was unhappy with my loose skin. How things change! #fit #fitfam #fitspo #fitness #gym #gymlife #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #dedication #inspiration #motivation #muscletech #photoshoot #strong #opa #aroundtheopa #bikini #athlete #strongtothefinish2017 #winner #health #healthy #happy #iifym #throwbackthursday #tbt

When your shift ended 5 minutes ago but you forgot your @revolutionbrand Bulldose rush preworkout 💪🏽.

A lot of people have been asking how I did on the #stongtothefinish2017 challenge. And for those who don't know @popeyessupplements set a challenge for anyone in Canada to showcase they're 12 week transformations from Feb 22nd to May 28th for some pretty sweet prizes and some obvious personal gains. So I signed up.. I've always been into the gym and lots of physical activities but damn recently I fell off and found myself making a lot of excuses. So this challenge couldn't have come at a better time.. Eating right and staying consistent with my exercise strengthened every part of me! I preformed better in every aspect of my life and that's an addiction I don't know if I will ever kick..
I truly believe that progress is the key to happiness and sometimes we just need to accept the obstacles in our life as challenges so that we can make that decision to crush them.. Don't let fear stop you from a challenge OWN that shit! Thank you to everyone who supported me and continues to support me!

My friend Brady from Goodlife invited me to take a test to see what my body fat % was. I was very surprised and humbled at the same time with what i saw; 10.1% body fat. From my time I began my Transformation (1st 2 months in my basement and last month at goodlife) I am where I am because of Team Saskstoon 8th street Goodlife and their facilities. ✋😎 Hi-5 to Brady for sharing this with me. Thanks a million!
