|smile| Don't do it for a six pack or a thigh gap. Do it so that you can walk into any room and smile because you are confident and truly feel beautiful from the inside out. Do it to be a part of a community. Do it so you can do things you never dreamed you could. There are a million reasons to start, and a billion to keep going. Let's keep mental health in mind this week and do it for the right reasons 😘 #bebright
Just got back from a long weekend of vacation. I visited my brother last weekend and ate terribly, got back and ate okay for a week, and then i was away again and once again ate terribly. I am totally feeling sluggish and gross this morning. I was going to post a progress pic to catch u guys up physique wise as to what went on with my body during all this bad eating, but I thought this video would actually be better. I think videos like this are really cool because it shows u more angles than a picture does. Whenever u see pictures of really ripped abs or muscle, remember that lighting and angles come into play. Dont get me wrong those people def have abs and probably worked really hard for them, but know that their pictures are extemely one sided. This vid shows different lighting and different angles of me posing, and as u can see, i look drastically different in all of these pics. I also felt it was important that I posted this while I dont look my best because i try to be 100% honest with u guys and yes after a week and a bit of very little weight training anf poor eating, I no longer have a visible 6 pack nor do I even have a cut up 4 pack. Therefore, dont beat yourself up if this happens to you. The important thing to do is to get back on track and keep grinding. • • • • • #fitness#nutrition#fitlife#lifting#girlswholift#martialarts#tkd#fitspo#bbg1#bbgcommunity#bbgteam#tiuteam#tiucheckin#tiucommunity#f4f#bodypositive#selflove#selfmotivation#iifym#carbcycling#abs#progress
Truth! 🙌🏻 I mean, how freaking long does this take?! 😂😜 Just kidding. Happy Tuesday! What does everyone have planned for today? I still need to get my workout in as well as take my son to the dentist (all of his bands before he gets braces have fallen out aka he swallowed them. Yuck!) & then Cullen, our Pomeranian/Shih Tzu is off to the groomer to get shaved. He goes in looking like an Ewok & comes out like a Gremlin. 🙈🤣 And then I have to do a 💩 ton of paperwork for my possible new job.
What I wouldn't give for a long hike in the Tennessee mountains today! But my workout will instead take place in my basement - but hey, that's better than no workout at all! 😏 Here's to day 21/28 for the month's workouts with my accountability buddies! Thanks to you ladies I haven't missed a one!😁 Legggoooo!
Kind of a reverse #transformationtuesday 🙃 The left picture was about a year and a half ago... when i was running 8 miles every other day and eating about 1,000 calories at the maximum. I was doing 2 hour crossfit workouts and also #bbg at the time. I only had about 15% body fat and i was constantly losing weight. I was super proud of my transformation (and i still am) but that physique started bein impossible to maintain. My metabolism slowed WAAAAY down, i was always tired, and mentally i was hurting. Fast forward to today... the Right picture... Yes i've gained some weight but it's healthy weight! I'm lifting heavy 3-4 times a week and doing normal amounts of cardio for my body! It's hard to look back at the pictures i have from when i was tiiiiiny (because i like the idea of being that tiny again) but i have to remember that i'm so much healthier now! I'm building muscle and not restricting myself to an unhealthy point! Life is good and balance is amazing ❤ happy tuesday babes, rant over 😂😂😂
