Today was hard! i woke up feeling super stiff, achy lower back, a hip that feels like its locking up on me and honestly i just wasnt feeling it today. and might i add i felt like my tummy grew 5 inches over night!🙃 baby girl is growing i guess! but i've learned those tough days are the days i really need to push through.
i had to modify...alot! but man i was so happy i did it. and then i went to see the handy chiropractor today to get a great adjustment! 😁 he bragged on my improvement from 2 years ago and man did that feel good!
these "silly" at home workouts proved theirselves today in someone else's eyes! and yall i cant thank myself enough for committing to them last year and deciding i was worth the investment!
i've got a new group starting soon that is taking me back to my very first full program i did! the one that taught me so much about myself and helped me breakthrough so many mental blocks! so it holds a special place in my heart!
my max challenge is one you will not want to miss out on!! i'll be sharing more details over the next couple of days so stay tuned and watch my stories too for more info! if you want to hold your spot then fill out the max challenge info form at the link in my bio page. or let me know below that you want more info!
This past weekend i was cleaning out my closet and came across a tote full of clothes that i had packed away almost two years ago including this pair of dress pants. i can remember a time not that long ago when these used to be too tight to even button. in fact, most of the clothes in my closet were too tight and i pretty much hated everything that i put on my body. i basically lived in black yoga pants and baggy sweatshirts because i thought nothing looked good on me. 😔 ▪️▪️▪️ that all changed two years go when i decided enough was enough and it was time to invest in my health! i got started with a 30 minute at home workout program, started drinking a superfood shake every day and started eating more fruit, veggies & healthy fats and less crap. #itslifestylenotadiet ▪️▪️▪️
putting my health at the top of my priority list is ☝️ of the best things i've ever done for myself. i have never felt more confident and happy with the person i see in the mirror. #selflove ▪️▪️▪️
choosing to live a healthy lifestyle isn’t just about losing weight or being a certain size. it’s about so much more. it’s about the confidence i gained in myself because of how hard i have worked and how much i show up for myself day in and day out. #progressoverperfection ▪️▪️▪️

I used to be very mean to myself, beating myself up constantly for all of the ways i disappointed myself, especially when it came to food. 🤦🏼♀️ the day i ate until i cried was the day i knew it was time to make a change. i had felt rejected, less than, stressed, overwhelmed, behind, and generally insecure and i had fallen into the quick fix of an emotional eating binge to temporarily distract me from my pain. i ate until my stomach bloated. i ate until my jaw hurt from chewing. i ate until i hated myself so much that i wanted to curl up and hide from the world. i convinced myself that if people knew this about me, they wouldn't like me. i told myself i was unlovable and i punished myself the following days with extra workouts, less food and mean, self-flagellating thoughts. 🙄⠀
though this was years ago, it still feels raw, real and recent. i share because i do not give voice to shame in my life anymore, and since i have found freedom from the crazy cycle of emotional eating that once made me feel helpless and hopeless, i shine light so that the millions of people who are in a similar cycle know that they can step out from the shame they feel and into a place of strength. 🙏🏻 when we let shame steer us, we stay stuck and we stay silent. there is a better way. 💕 there is an easier way. there is a new way, and that way is a new approach to food. i curated my newest program, the donut diet 🍩as a freedom solution for anyone who is in a place that i once was in. in the program, i walk you through six weeks of shame-detox, self-trust strengthening and pattern-reestablishment to help you be free from the tyranny of food. ⠀
know this: i am here for you, and you can break free from the cycle of self-meanness and of emotional eating shame. start your path to kindness and freedom the donut diet 🍩 by hitting the link in my bio 👆🏻...and message me if you ever just need to be reminded of the truth that you are not stuck! 🙌🏻
Let’s talk about #nonscalevictories because if you are assessing your progress on weight alone, you could be very disheartened!! i highly recommend avoiding regularly tracking your weight unless you are also regularly measuring yourself!! i can fluctuate in one week up to four kilos!!! nine weeks ago i was a size 14 au and 75 kgs ( pink shirt photo), i could barely hold a plank for 45 seconds and i couldn’t even button up my denim shorts in this pic let alone they squeezed my thighs tightly. over my 8 week challenge my weight was tracked by my trainer and it barely shifted! one day i’d be 71kgs.. another 74.3, another back up to 75.. then down to 70 then back up to 74. long story short.. these denim shorts are a size 11! and loose! my tummy is still very much there, it’s the last place i shift fat.. i’m a work in progress and loving getting stronger! don’t stress too much about weight if you’re training hard and losing cm you’re also building muscle and muscle weighs more than fat! measure! and have a goal item of clothing you can’t fit into!.. the scale lies! particularly in the short term. we can all fluctuate up to 5kgs of water weight. #progressnotperfection#firstwemakethebeastbeautiful#forgetthescale#nonscalevictory#fitmum#consistencyiskey#fitfam#bodytransformation#workinprogress#longwaytogo#happinessproject#adrenalfatiguerecovery#healthybodyhealthymind
Ad. we’re now a full month into autumn and there have been days where it full-on feels like exactly like winter. (autumn, you’re not fooling anyone.) i am seeing a few of you post your final dredges of summer harvests on instagram and visually saying goodbye to your crispy fresh vegetables. but just because delicious summertime tomatoes have gone bye-bye doesn’t mean we have to stop enjoying delicious salads. in fact, a crisp and crunchy zucchini noodle salad is every bit as satisfying! have you ever zoodled? recipe link in bio 👆and tell me about your fav ways to use spiralized zucchini noodles! #arsoystory
