Why youre not losing stubborn stomach fat... ⠀ Youre probably NOT eating enough FIBER! 🍊🥦🍉🍌 ⠀ You know how in meal plans for weight loss they always include fruit & veggies? Not only are veggies super good for adding volume to your meals but they are super LOW in calories and high in fiber! ⠀ So you’re probably asking yourself WHY is fiber so important for weight loss?🤔 ⠀ Because when youre trying to lose weight you want to make sure your digestive system is working WITH you and NOT against you!🙌🏼 ⠀ Thats why when losing weight you should go towards foods HIGH in fiber like wheat bread, quinoa, fruits, veggies!! ⠀ The healthier you eat & the less processed your meals are the less bloated/ constipated you will feel! & in order for you to lose weight you need to eat LESS calories than you burn so the fiber will help to make you feel FULLER for longer while eating LESS!👏🏻👏🏻 ⠀ Make sure youre having at least 1 fruit a day and multiple servings of veggies a day!😇🥦🥒 ⠀ Do you struggle with eating enough fiber?! How do you plan on adding more fruits and veggies to your daily meals? ⠀ ⠀
Everything feels so uncomfortable, I could literally come out of my skin. But my skin doesn’t even feel comfortable so that’s not helping either.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That was my regular thought when I was trying to get healthy and lose weight.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was the visceral feeling of BLAH in combination with so much frustration, I felt like my face was always red from holding my breath.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I had to seriously check myself and re-evaluate what changes I needed to make so I could break through the plateaus that were beginning to feel like mountains in order to see the change I deserved to feel.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can you relate to this?

Im gonna share a secret with you... Success is not an accident. Failure is not an accident. Whether you succeed or fail comes down to your daily decisions. Do you want to feel so god damn comfortable in your body so that you can start having sex with your partner again? Do you want to shed those last 10lbs so that you can stop sucking in to button your jeans, and finally feel lighter + happier? Unless you’re magic or just #blessed, bish, you better work for it. You have to be mindful and make your health a priority every. single day. You WILL see other people who don’t need to work as hard, and I know it may seem unfair. But that’s just life. It’s not fair. You can complain all you want but at the end of the day, what matters most is what YOU need to do and what changes YOU need to make in order to achieve what you want. That’s exactly why I created the Fat Loss Accelerator 🔥 The FLA is a 12-week, private coaching program for women who are ready to have their biggest lifestyle transformation yet. Inside you will: ✅ achieve stress free, sustainable weight loss without cutting out the things you love most ✅ have the ease of leaving the guesswork and strategy to me - all you have to do is show up + put in the work ✅ skyrocket your confidence in the gym, get aligned with your nutrition, and feel the best you have in years ✅ achieve a greater sense of direction so that you can continue to accomplish your goals on your own ✅ wake up feeling excited everyday knowing that you are working toward a brighter + healthier future & client spots are open NOW 👏🏼 Sound like some good goals for us to achieve together? If you feel it is, let’s get to work. #linkinbio
Give me a 🙌🏼 if you love trail mix!⠀ .⠀ Babe, let’s talk about portion sizes. Back in college when I was restricting food like crazy all day, I would wake up in the middle of the night RAVENOUS😈 for food and go searching for something in the kitchen. Because I thought trail mix (especially nuts) were “healthy” I would give myself permission to eat them before going back to sleep😴 I was so hungry I could literally devour ½ a box of trail mix with NO PROBLEM!!!🙊⠀ .⠀ Looking back, I didn’t realize that my behaviors weren’t normal!! Not to mention I felt frustrated that I couldn’t achieve my weight loss goals despite eating “perfectly” all day. It wasn’t until I learned more about portion sizes that I realized how many calories I was really consuming in the evenings. Although I was cutting calories by skipping meals all day, I would make up that food later in the evening when I would binge on trail mix🤷🏼♀️⠀ .⠀ 👈🏼On the left is ½ cup trail mix (320 calories)⠀ 👉🏼On the right is ¼ cup trail mix (160 calories)⠀ .⠀ Instead of skipping meals and mindlessly eating out of containers, I recommend measuring out your food until you are confident about portion sizes to help you lose weight💫⠀ .⠀ Have you ever binge ate in the evening after skipping meals all day?🙋🏼♀️ Apply for my Alumni Slim Down Program (link in bio) to learn what portion sizes of food YOU need to lose weight and avoid binge eating!🙌🏼 My clients NEVER feel the need to “cheat” on their diet after working through my coaching program!!!👯♀️⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #trailmix#womensweightloss#howtoloseweight#beachbodyondemand#trackingmacros#macrodieting#macrosonpoint#fuelyourbodyright#countingmacros#macrofriendly#nutritionfacts#flexiblediet#caloriedeficit#weightlosscoaching#caloriesincaloriesout#losingweightjourney#myweightloss#summershred#weightlossgoal#weightlossforwomen#sororitygirls
⭕️WIDER GRIP = WIDER LATS? NOT REALLY!⭕️ . I’m pretty sure you’ve heard this countless times: “grip the bar at its widest to develop a wide back.” . And mind you, I actually believed the same for a while, until I questioned this very thing myself on how would that actually even work. . ✅Muscles grow as a response to a continuous & progressive stimulus induced by training, fueled by proper nutrition. As long as the stimulus is 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘰𝘯𝘦 meaning that it is actually hitting the muscles you’re looking to develop by fully contracting them, they will grow. And by “growth” you get both: thickness & width. . Although the studies I'm presenting took the Lat Pulldown to show the results, the same applies for pull ups too since both exercises activate lats similarly.  . A medium grip seems to works even better than a wider one, research shows.  . And this because a narrower grip allows for better technique & ROM (range of motion), which seems to have a greater impact on not only lats, but also trap & infraspinatus muscles as well. . How wide, you ask? . It’s gotta feel comfortable and you gotta be able to perform full ROM in order to fully contract your back muscles, and maintain your shoulders in a safe spot: my suggestion is around 1.5 shoulder width. . ❌ A wide grip for them ego lofters: “yuh braw, you need to grip it at the opposing edges of the bar to stimulate that width brah, yeuh!!.” . By gripping the bar so wide, you will never be able to even fully complete the movement. Your shoulders won’t even be able to stay locked down and back (which is how you should perform the exercise), so they’ll be more likely to internally rotate and completely shut down lat engagement. As a result you’ll get a bro-spotter to help you out with your struggling reps, some shoulder
READ THIS if you're having trouble getting started. - - Imagine you're standing at the top of the hill. - And just in front of you, there's a giant boulder that's as tall as you are. - It's 3 feet away from the edge. - Your job is to push it 3 feet forward so that it can roll down the hill. - It seems impossible. You don't even want to try. - But you force yourself to try anyway, and something strange happens - you push it 2 inches forward. It was DIFFICULT and it required A LOT of effort, but you managed to push it just a little. - And then something even stranger happens - you feel like you want to try again. - So you do. And this time you manage to push it 3 inches forward. - You feel motivated to keep pushing that boulder because you know the distance is getting smaller. - And you manage to get a little further every time. - And then you realise the boulder is rolling down the hill without your help. - - THIS is what happens when you first start trying to lose weight. - You don't want to start because it feels impossible. - But you need to FORCE yourself to do SOMETHING. It doesn't matter what. It can be something as simple as drinking an extra glass of water. - Or going for a 5-minute walk after lunch. - Or eating 1 cookie instead of 2. - It's going to require effort, but as long as you keep the image of the boulder in mind, you'll be able to do it. - And you'll see SOME kind of result from that action. It might be feeling a little more energetic. Or it might just be satisfaction from achieving something you set out to do. - That result is going to give you a little motivation, which you'll use to take a second action. - The second action will STILL feel difficult ... but a little less difficult than last time. - After a while, you'll be hitting the gym and eating veggies without even thinking about it. - And before you know it, you'll be 20 lb lighter. - But this whole process starts with forcing yourself to perform 1 action. - KNOW that it'll be hard work.

I’d like to talk about a transformation I made within though. Yes my picture very much so highlights my physical change but something amazing happened while I was on my girl’s trip this weekend....I embraced my butterfly wings!! I was so insanely nervous about being in a bathing suit in public and I rocked it:) I was nervous the first day to even walk to the bathroom but that walk was liberating. I’ve worked damn hard on my body and my butterfly wings and wiggly jiggly thighs are just reminders of what a freaking badass I am💪🏻💪🏻 I also let go of some of my crazy control issues and allowed myself to break my fasting so I could enjoy my time here. That was something huge for me too. I let myself enjoy food and get zero guilt for eating outside of my fasting window which was a big step for my maintenance phase. I’m back to my fasting today but sometimes you have to be gentle with yourself and allow yourself to enjoy these moments. I speak a lot about how the journey never ends it just brings new lessons and you get to learn more about yourself. I’m a girl that has control over her addiction not the other way around. I’m also a girl in maintenance learning to let go of some
