🎶I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don’t get in a fight, ooohhhh back to school... back to school....🎶

So I’m going back to school this fall to obtain a degree in Elementary Education. I’m so excited to better my life by bettering the lives of of countless children! The road won’t be easy, but it’s definitely worth it! 📓📚📝

Mini family vacay in the books! Nice to get away with the hubs and the kiddo even for a few days! 🕶🌵☀️

Heyyy IG 🌎 Been MIA for a little bit, but I can promise you that my journey hasn’t stopped, definitely hasn’t slowed down either.
.
.
I started documenting my fitness and self love journey at the suggestion of a friend as a way to keep myself accountable. Here we are a few months down the road and I haven’t felt the need to post to ensure I’m getting it done... I just am. It’s become habit, second nature, just another part of my day.
.
.
Every day isn’t on point, but that’s life. I’ve stopped obsessing on the occasional slip up and more about making sure overall my choices are healthy. I’m seeing toning, lifting, definition and the scale slowly, but consistently going down. I am proud of myself for not giving up on myself. Life is good. ♥️

This morning I stepped on the scale expecting to see a number that I wouldn’t be proud of. After all I had a gooey chocolate chip cookie with ice cream on top before bed as a dessert with the hubs. 🍪🍦 .
.
.
Instead, I broke into the 160’s for the first time in maybe 1.5-2 years. If my husband wasn’t still asleep, I probably would’ve screamed with joy, and probably surprise. Instead, I quietly did a happy dance! .
.
.
I got dressed and headed downstairs and logged my weight in my FitBit and MyFitnessPal apps to find I’ve lost 15 pounds since August. At first I thought “That’s all?! Seriously?!” I felt pretty down about it, honestly. My next thought was “I’ve really only been truly focusing on working out, cleaning up my nutrition, and making lifestyle changes for 2 months.” That’s when I realized how hard we are on ourselves. How damaging that really is to our progress. How even more damaging that is to us mentally. I’ve accomplished so much in a few short months and I’m honestly so proud of myself for finally changing these habits and focusing on myself and my health for the first time in probably 10 years. The scale is not the true measure of my progress, and definitely not the measure of my self worth. .
.
.
For anyone out there struggling, just remember, progress is progress, not matter how big or small. Or even if the scale doesn’t move at all. You’re out there. You’re trying. You’re making habits and choices to better yourself, every day. That’s what truly matters at the end of the day. ♥️💪🏼 .

Wanted pizza for lunch, but wanted to keep my carbs in check. So what did I do? Busted out a bag of cauliflower rice and made a low carb pizza crust. DELICIOUS! 🍕♥️

Trying to find the motivation to get off my bed to put my kid to bed so I can go to bed after a long (almost) hour workout. The struggle is reeeeal folks! So is the burn I’m feeling in my arms and legs! 😂💪🏼🔥😴

Love being able to use dance as my cardio. So fun you don’t even realize you spent 40 minutes doing it! Followed it up with some weights and booty band work for another 20. Feeling it for sure! 💪🏼🔥

Grilled up some delicious honey lime chicken and made myself a super yummy Greek salad for dinner while I prepped my grocery plan and meal plan for the week. Can’t wait for the bikini series week two to start! .

Shout out to my hubs for helping to create a gym space for me in our home! (Not pictured, stationary bike)💪🏼🏋🏼‍♀️👟🧘🏼‍♀️

I’m a full momma, work a full time job, who starts back to school this summer (more to come on that), with a hubs who works completely opposite days and shifts from me. Trying to find time to actually go to the gym is damn near impossible. So bringing some of the gym to me has been an amazing help! Thanks babe! 😘
