Ahhh this is kind of a big deal for me! I was always so afraid of the camera because I hated how I looked but now I feel so confident that I can even take full body pictures! I love my body, I love my curves, I love my thick thighs that touch. I have come so so far from being almost 190 pounds and having a body fat percentage of 38% to now being about 130 with a bf percentage of 25% ! I still have work to do but I am very happy right now.
(I am sorry I keep using the same before picture but its one of the only ones I have, also sorry for the picture quality)
Where I can get pink dumbells? and not those like 7 pounds ones. Help?
This is generally my shopping list :)
For those of you who were looking for it!
Whats your favorite? I am on the market for one and I need some recommendations :)
Is it bad that I havent even completed my first half marathon and I am already registering for more?
There is a lot of confusion around the purpose of a cheat meal. Many people believe that if they are on a healthy eating plan they must eat cleanly 100% of the time. However studies have shown that cheat meals can be beneficial both mentally and physically.
Mentally: Having a cheat meal can actually help you stayed motivated and on track. It allows you to have the food you love and stop feeling deprived.
“When you plan a cheat day on your diet once a week, you can look forward to rewarding yourself for your hard work. Every time you feel the temptation throughout the week to stray off of your diet, you’ll be able to remind yourself that you will have that treat on your cheat day and you’ll find the temptation less strong than if you’d told yourself you can never touch that unhealthy food again.”
Physically: Did you know that having a cheat can actually make you lose weight faster? This is because having a higher calorie days boosts your metabolism! It keeps you body on the edge because it does not get use to having only a low amount of calories.
"Having a cheat day boosts your metabolism in many ways. One way it boosts your metabolism is by increasing leptin levels. Leptin is a hormone that influences hunger and body fat levels. When you diet and cut your calories, your leptin levels also drop. This causes those extreme hunger signals, and as a result, your body will hold onto body fat thinking that it’s going to need it to survive in the future. Leptin levels are directly correlated with your total caloric intake. Low calories lower leptin levels. By having a cheat day, you give your body a chance to “reset” your hormone levels – leptin included."
So there you go! Do not feel bad about indulging in your favorite meals! and like always everything in moderation :)
(Special note: I do not encourage cheating on your significant other, school work, taxes or anything else.. just dont do it)
This is what I have been following to train for my half marathon! Hope it helps :)
Today is for sure a rest day! Compression leg sleeves and icing intervals for the night
As you guys may know I am training for a half marathon (only 73 days to go) but I have encountered a big problem. I have extremely flat feet and tend to severely over-pronate. This is causing me to be in a lot of pain :( I am currently doing exercises to help strengthen my flat feet, however I need some more immediate relief. Do any of you know anything that could help ?
Thank you in advance!
Done with my meal prep for the week! Failing to prepare is preparing to fail 💪🏃#mealprep #fitness #fit #halfmarathon #health #healthy #runner #healthyfood #motivation

Today was a rest day so I just focused on stretching, taking an ice bath and eating cleanly.
I feel good about my food choices today and I do feel like it is getting easier to make smart food decisions.
Also I super excited because I just ordered the “Pressed Juicery” cleanse which will be here on the 1st so thats perfect timing. I think I want to do a cleanse on the first of every month.
I am sooooo sore and it feels so good! lol
How was your day?
