I make so many faces in the gym while singing and smiling but I gotta say.... this one is pretty good 😂
So I’ve taken three full days away form the gym; no workouts, no abs, no nothing except from walking! To be honest it’s been great for my body. It needed the rest after pushing so hard in BUILD. And it’s ready to come back 💪
Mentally it’s been tough. My relationship with food isn’t quite right so I’m eating the same as I was when bulking which has played on my mind. Add not training to that and it’s hard... but I did it anyways. My body needed the rest and I’m glad I gave it.
I’m filming a review on BUILD. and will soon be going onto the second stage in this two-parter 😉 tune in Sunday to find out more
First photo is of me at my biggest 250 give or take the last photo was last today weighing 210-208. Hello everyone so this is my new fitness journey page! Let me just state so thing first so these photos and videos will be of me and of my workouts in a few months I’ll start to post some post work out meals and will be posting a video of me telling about my journey. Hope you guys stay tuned and maybe this will motivate some of you if not all of you to rewrite you journey through life with a different lifestyle #lifestylechange#fitness#transformationprocess#getfit#stayhealthy#bigdifference
Hands up if you enjoy your alcohol 🙋🏻♀️ When I was on my weight loss journey I went through a stage where I was working out, eating well but not losing weight which was soooo frustrating. 😩
I didn’t 🤷🏻♀️ know where I was going wrong.
There were weeks I’d lose weight and weeks I wouldn’t lose a gram.
I started to notice 🤔the weeks I would go out on the weekends and drink my weight wouldn’t budge.
I started to look closely into then calories of alcohol and was shocked at the amount of calories I was consuming in 1 night.
I would never of imagined 1 cocktail had almost ½ my daily calories I was on!
I quickly changed that and started to have clear shots alcohol or vodka sodas which have an average of only 64 calories per tumbler.
The average serve of a cocktail is generally 200 calories and let’s be real who only has 1❓ Definitely not me 🙅🏻♀️. You can still go out and enjoy your drinks 🍸 but just get familiar with what your having.
For A LOT of people alcohol can be the primary reason to why they’re not seeing results.
If you are going out and you know you are going to be drinking ⤴️increase you protein though out that day. ⤵️ Decrease your fats and carbs so you can save some calories for your booz.
Stick to vodka / diet soda or a glass of wine which will have the least calories… ∙ A traditional pina colada, composed of rum, pineapple juice and cream of coconut can contain as much as 650 calories.
If you do like your cocktails opt for light rum, or substitute unsweetened coconut water for cream of coconut to get more drink for fewer calories.
My choice of drink is definitely vodka soda 🍸. What is yours?

I know so many of you understand.. & I want to give you a peek into my mindset as a Fit Pro… b/c I’ve struggled with feeling like a black sheep in this industry for a while. CONFESSION: sometimes I claim I “hate” this industry. And although that’s hyperbole b/c I truly LOVE what I do, I honestly get REALLY frustrated with how vain & superficial it can be.
There’s a deeply personal reason why I REALLY don’t care to pursue a perfect figure. And I’ll be sure to preface this by saying that I’m incredibly privileged to have genetics that have kept me from ever struggling with my weight… but here’s the thing: I don’t have perfect genetics. Not even close. In fact, my Dad’s side of the family is riddled with cancer. The # of family members we’ve lost to cancer or have currently living with it - including my Dad [who has #leukemia] - is absolutely terrifying & heartbreaking. So take it from someone who’s always been “thin”... being small is not all it’s cracked up to be. I’ve watched my father’s weight creep within 10lbs of my own... & believe me, that #weightloss wasn’t anything to celebrate. It was traumatic.
So I want you to know: you DON’T have to pursue 6-pack abs, the roundest booty or the most sculpted shoulders. I gave that up years ago… but what I haven’t given up is regular strength training & nourishing my body for the reason that it decreases my risk of chronic illnesses like cancer, diabetes & arthritis - all things my warrior father currently lives with. I’m not on a journey of transformation. I’m on a journey of prevention. And here’s the thing! You can be on a journey toward both at the same time!! But I believe with all my heart that the reason I’ve stayed consistent for so many years is b/c prioritizing prevention holds so much more meaning for me than the superficial. It’s what makes it a lifestyle vs a short term goal. Which is why I invite you all on this journey with me. In a society that tries to capitalize on our insecurities it’s liberating, it’s empowering & it’s the kind of mindset that allows you to tune into your purpose & live intuitively.

A moment of honesty... Thinking about getting pregnant makes me excited but I’ve subconsciously told myself... “girl, you gunna get fat so stop trying for them abs!!!” Soooo I did... I started losing motivation with my nutrition and my workouts... and I’ve gained almost 10 lbs since getting married... well I looked in the mirror and wasn’t happy again and I realized what I was doing to myself and that of course I’m going to gain weight while creating a life... but I also need to be healthy for myself and my future children!!! 🥰🥰🥰 I’m shouting myself TF out right now!!! And I know I got this!!! Jumping back in full speed starting with a cleanse!!! One day almost down!!!! #fitness#teamfearless#teamaspire#lifestyle#getfit
Have a nice day everyone 💙

Bargained with myself tonight • if I could just workout for 15 minutes, I would let myself quit
I made it those 15 minutes • they seemed brutal and like they lasted forever •
But I did it, 15 minutes spent on myself and my health • better than nothing, and hopefully better tomorrow •
Winning the battle over myself 15 minutes at a time 💕
