Todays motivation:

Its hard to start motivating and staying motivated. But the thing is, your body won’t change unless you do something. Actions do (in this case) speak louder than words! Whenever I’m lacking motivation I go on my blog and think “If I want a change I better be doing something to see the change, I want to look good, I want to feel confident, I want to be _____.” For me I want to look healthy and feel healthy, to fit in my old pair of jeans. To remember what it feels like to put on something and not feel like I have to suck in to make it look good on me. I want those changes, but eating unhealthy and not working out will not show any results. SO GET YOUR ASS UP AND LETS START SEEING RESULTS PPL

Update on my health journey 😊

I’ve lost about 100 lbs.

First picture is from my freshmen year in high school. The second picture is my second year in college.
The last 2 pictures are current.

Within these 3 years I’ve been a vegan for a year and a half. I drink a gallon of water a day and I learned that unless I’m performing well mentally, physically I will not look my best either.

At the end of the day. My journey taught me how to love my self and appreciate all of me (even the parts that I didn’t like)

My tum tum (another word I call my tummy) is mine. It didn’t get here over night and it’s not going away over night either. My hips, waist, arms…. all of them are parts of me. These individual components that make me who I am.

And even though I’m working continuously to get rid of my fat. I wouldn’t trade any part of me for the world. 💙

My fitness story

A lot of people can probably related but throughout high school I gradually became more lean and felt confident and good about my body. I played soccer, workout most days, and was overall always active throughout the day. Once I got to college the first 2 months of freshman year I was about my lowest weight. But then I stopped caring about what I ate, never worked out, and partied a lot. And you think its the “freshman 15″ but for me sadly it was more like the “freshman 40″ I also had a few other factors that made me gain weight (birth control) BUT NOW IM A SOPHOMORE, and honestly have never felt worse about my body. So now I’m getting back into the swing of things like when I was in high school. I’ve realized I’m a lot more happy and relaxed when I eat healthy and workout everyday. So hopefully Ill start showing significant results soon :)

Left 220ish lbs and this morning before the gym 166lbs!
People ask me “what’s your secret??”
When it comes down to it there are no secrets or magic cures to lose weight and keep it off. Fad diets may work for a short period of time. But a lifestyle change is what will really make you successful.
Knowing how to nourish your body and giving it what it needs and being more active is the real key.
Don’t get me wrong I still occasionally go to town on a large stuffed crust pizza 👌 all in moderation, right?
