Don’t tell yourself you can’t or that it’s impossible. It takes time, consistency and hard work. Do it at your own pace and don’t beat yourself up over things that you can’t control. I am happy with the life change that I’ve done not because I wanted to look better because I wanted to be healthy. I used to take 3 blood pressure medications, plus was probably on my way to become to a diabetic. Don’t get me wrong it’s hard to lose weight but once you get in the zone to reach your goal (whatever goal), you feel alive. A lot of people told me that losing weight in my 30s is the hardest. A lot of people told me that my workouts were silly. A lot of people told me that sharing progress was just annoying. A lot of people told me that my diet is the worst (it probably is, I can’t let go of 🍕). Motivation starts within you.

Fit Friday!!! (I know I’ve been a little late with the holiday and all, haha).  Bang out those arms boys/girls.  Here I am super setting with close grip EZ curl bar and then immediately picking up the 10 lb dumbbells at my feet to do wide angle curls.  This exhausts the biceps and makes sure you hit both heads of the muscle.  Try it and feel the burn!  

Loving Tumblr!!!  Starting to get some love already (thank you!) and questions about the process and transformation, nutrition, exercise.  Although I cannot provide my knowledge in a single post (yep, think I eventually need a book for that), we can take stuff step by step.  Here we go:

Question #1  = How much cardio do I do to stay so lean?  Answer = Certainly some 20min/3x/week but it is not my sole focus.  Remember this saying “you cannot out run your fork”, haha.  Therefore your overall fitness is a factor of proper nutrition, controlled portion sizes, a little bit of cardio and more lifting weights!  Yes I lift weights and free weights and lots of them!  Why?  The more lean muscle mass I have, the more calories I burn at rest (that’s a great thing).  Increasing my metabolism.  Lifting also allows you to sculpt your figure.  I tend to use medium weights (enough resistance to feel it and struggle a little once I reach my higher reps).  Keep the questions coming!

The finisher. This was for 4 sets til failure! Feet spread wide apart. Toes pointed outward. Lean back into bar. And GO FOR IT!! My first few reps weren’t as low as I’d like. But the last few were. (Stay focused on the goal) #will2befit #abetternakedme #bodybuilding #lafitness #reps #bootybuilding #glutes #legs

LOVE a good arm day at the gym!  Lift ladies, LIFT LIFT LIFT!  It is the only way to sculpt your figure!  Remember these important sayings: 1) You can’t out run your fork (therefore eat healthy and portion control), 2) You CAN spot increase, you CANNOT spot reduce, 3) Doing cardio only burns calories, it does not build muscle nor increase metabolism.  The benefits of lifting weights and resistance training are HUGE!!!  In case I haven’t gotten that message across clearly!
