TOTAL LOST 28.8 POUNDS & (almost) 48 inches. I’ve lost the length of my son in INCHES! **UPDATE** NINETY DAYS…. 9-0-D-A-Y-S!!! I’ve been on this journey for 90 days! I would have never imagined I would be here in 90 days. In the past 90 days, I’ve completed 3 programs and I’m 1/4th of the way into my 4th program. I have a list of the programs that I want to finish. I’ve learned that I’m a finisher vs a quitter. I’ve started listening to more personal development podcast/books. I’m changing my mind each day. I’ve changed my eating habits, I’m no longer eating fried foods EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE. I’m eating a lot more veggies. I’ve gained energy so that I can play with my kiddos more. I’m learning not to be scared, to try new things. I’m gaining muscles. I’m losing fat. I’m drinking more water. I’m fueling my body with the nutrients that it needs. I’m bolder. I’m more confident. Most of all, I CAN DO THIS. A lot can change in 90 days. What can you accomplish in 90 days?
I was FaceTiming my grandma for the first ~38 minutes walking on the treadmill because the gym was empty. And I talk with my hands, so I accidentally pulled the emergency stop cord thing 🛑and it stopped my workout. So then I restarted it and didn’t think about the almost 40 minutes I already put in so I had an hour total: 3.02 miles. Mostly slow & steady, running my mouth more than my feet 🤣🤣🤣
10/16/18 Today was absolutely amazing!! That smile on my face is a real one. A moment of transparency: it’s been a minute since I’ve been this content, this at peace. Let me tell you depression sucks and sooo real. Mental health is so important. Today I chose to take care of me. Of course I couldn’t have done it without my 🐶 puppers, #cooperreeseking she’s totally my number 1 fan, my mascot, my motivator, my accountability partner. Lol she definitely keeps me on my toes, and honest. I have no choice but to move and to not binge. Today was an awesome double day! 2.37 miles on our walk and still had enough energy to get it in at the gym! Let’s see what happens tomorrow!
10/15/18 #yesterdaysthings#latepost#tryingtoplaycatchup Yesterday’s accountability check in. Lord only knows I didn’t want to. But I just couldn’t sit still and feel sorry for myself. It was rough I can’t lie but I made it through.
I never used to be able to “stick” to a plan. For me the more I restricted the hard I fell off the “wagon”. . . For someone who struggles with emotional eating and binge eating restriction is counter productive - and yet this is what society tells us is the only way to see results. . . Noooope. . . I don’t count calories or macros, restrict or weigh foods. . . I follow simple strategies; I make mindful choices; and I still treat. . . After a 3 day plant based reset and less than a week of mindful eating program and I’m down 10lbs, and the bloat is gone 🙌🏻. . . Want see results happily, without feeling restricted? Get into my nutrition only mentorship 😜I have 8 spots left 🙌🏻.
Everything you’ve ever wanted is one step outside your comfort zone 🙌🏼 . . About to crush my workout for the day!! A few years ago I would have NEVER been confident enough to post about working out as a plus sized woman, be a virtual coach, post my journey on social media, and to be so vulnerable about my struggles both mentally and physically. Thank goodness I took that one step outside of my comfort zone! . . If you’ve ever been curious about the programs I do, I’m hosting a no strings attached sneak peek on Facebook this Thursday and would love to have some of my amazing followers join me! Let a girl know if you want in and I’ll DM you the deets 💪🏼⚡️
When I hopped on the scale I was a little disappointed to see that I’d only dropped less than six pounds. But after taking my measurements and checking my body fat I had the biggest smile on my face. The truth is, this journey is different than the ones I’ve started before. This time I’m looking past the numbers on the scale. So, in six weeks of #committofit here is what I have gained: an amazing community of #burnsisters, greater determination, stronger discipline, more energy, and a greater belief in what I can accomplish. #slowandsteadywinstherace 🐢 💪🏾 😜
