Day 30 of insanity max 30.

I have officially lost 7.3 pounds. I have lost 10 inches all over my body. I am just so happy with the results from just 30 days. I can’t wait for the end of the 60 days.
Thank you to all my followers for always keeping me motivated. I love you all!!! :)

My first progress picture of my 21 Day Fix has arrived!! In the picture on the left, I had just gotten over what was basically a 3 day binge. I was feeling bloated, unmotivated, and altogether yucky. The picture on the right is just 1 week of clean eating and exercising, and I feel energized, motivated, and confident as ever!

1 week down, 2 more to go! 👍 😁 👏

Felt good to get my workout of the day in! I’ve really come to love Insanity, but I think it’s about that time to switch up routines. I actually got a new workout plan just today, so I’m really super duper excited to start with that soon! Anyway, hope you all are having lovely days out there! Stay healthy! ❤️

Decided to go ahead and work out tonight since I wasn’t out too late, and I actually surprised myself at how much butt I kicked! I think it could be that pb and banana wrap I had beforehand…. I really must have pre-workout snacks more often!

Here’s the link for the video!

Anyways, hope you all are having an awesome time whatever you’re doing! Stay healthy! <3

Weightloss Progress Pics: T25 Alpha round results

I have recently been on a fitness journey and decided to make my health my main priority. I have been on this journey for years but the past 2 years I have made myself fully committed. In the last 30 days, I have been doing Focus T25 and it has changed me in so many ways! The way I feel is incredible and I have never felt this energized, stronger and happier than I am right now. It’s unbelievable!

My results aren’t drastic in these photos that I’ve attached but it’s progress that I’m proud about. I’m at the point where I’m not so concerned on how much weight I’ve lost but more about gaining muscle, toning my weak areas and pushing myself to levels I never thought I’d ever reach!

My strength is what I’m amazed by the most. T25 has a lot of jumping and a ton of lunges and squats, and while I was the least excited to do the workouts that had those in it, I have learned to love it. My legs are stronger than they’ve ever been and my arms are actually cut and defined! Eeek!! My butt is tighter and starting to form into the bubble butt I’ve always wanted! And the hardest place for me to get results was my abs. Because of T25, I almost have a flat stomach and because of all of the core work, my abs are strong and it won’t be long before they’re shining through!

Throughout the month, I have taken stats of everything. I’ve gone down and then up, and then down, and now I’ve maintained. I love stats and I believe that numbers don’t lie. My body fluctuates constantly so while the numbers haven’t dropped drastically, it’s still progress. I love the path that I’m on and I love the way I feel, so each day is a new day for me to keep pushing towards my goal. Nothing is going to stop me! 

Even though I’m a tab bit insecure with sharing my photos for some weird reason, I like sharing my journey in hopes of inspiring others to have the courage to take matters into their own hands. Getting on that horse and staying focused is HARD work but anyone can do it! I’m stumbled and fallen SO many times but I am soooo over starting over. I’m not at where I ultimately want to be, but looking back at how I used to be, gives me motivation to keep moving forward. The girl I was before is long gone and I love how I have evolved! 

On Monday I am starting 5 weeks of the Beta round of T25. I can’t wait to see where I’m at and how I’ve progressed after those weeks. I can’t even imagine!! 

Attached our my T25 progress pics and a couple pictures from over the years to show my progression. 

If you would like to start your journey, you don’t have to do it alone. All you need to do is to decide to commit and then you’ve already won the first battle. Message me any questions or if you’d like me to help you get started.

My Stats:

Neck: 12.75" –> 12.25"

Arms: 11" –>10.5"

Forearm: 9.75" –>9.5"

Wrist: 6.75" –> 6"

Bust: 36" –>35.5"

Waist: 30.5" –> 29.25"

Hips: 35" –> 33.75"

Thighs: 20.5" –> 19.25"

Weight: 145lbs –> 142.4lbs

BMI: 23.76 –> 23.34

Body Fat: 29.67 –> 29.16

We recently got a new scale and it measures body fat percentage, water percentage and muscle percentage and it says my body fat is at 21%. I don’t know which is more accurate but whatever. It’s says my muscle percentage is 37% so I think that’s pretty cool. Overall, I’m happy so far! :)

Body Image Challenges

Okay. I feel the need to write down a bit about the struggles I have come across recently during my weight loss (hovering between a 95 and 97 pound weight loss at the moment). I see the numbers on the scale, look at the sizes on my clothing, look at myself in the mirror, and it just doesn’t seem to add up. Conceptually, I know without a doubt that I have lost this weight, and that I have gained muscle as well (probably around 15 pounds of muscle if I compare my current weight and clothing size to that at the end of high school). At the same time, though, when I look in the mirror, all I see are the same rolls of fat as when I started. Granted, this is because I have been losing fat pretty evenly across my entire body, and so I am smaller, but still proportioned the same as before. However, because of this viewing of the “defects” I continually feel like I am having an out of body experience when people tell me that I am skinny or “no longer fat.”

I know with absolute certainty that I am smaller than my mother or grandmother now, but when I see them in person I still feel like I am larger than them. I asked a friend and they pointed out that it is because my mindset has been focused on my large size for so long that it will take me a long time to adjust from that viewpoint.

The thing that brought all of this up to the front of my mind was when a friend mentioned that I was half the person I used to be. I wanted to immediately argue against that fact based on my weight, but then I realized that when I look at clothing sizes, they were correct in their statement. That realization made me take a second look at my recent thoughts and interactions with myself and others.

I guess what I am saying with this rambling post is that it takes time to accept the changes your body goes through both physically and mentally. I also have a feeling that I will probably never be satisfied with the way I look until I can get the mental image of myself to adapt to the new me.

Quick update: I'm alive.

I’ve been sick for 2-3 weeks now and THE SICKNESS IS COMING BACK.
Okay I’m done being dramatic now. 
But seriously what have I done to deserve this?? haha

Anyways, I’ve started the 21 day fix, and I’m trying Shakeology during these 21 days.
I’m learning how to actually eat correctly and it’s…interesting.
With everything going on including classes starting and my relationship with my hella rad girlfriend going great, I’m going to be suuuuper busy for awhile. 
I’ll try to keep posting occasionally throughout this semester though. :)
