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!!! :)
***sorry for the porn***
I am having a freaking mouthgasm right now.
Made the famous aubernutter mug cake.
To mine I added a sprinkle of PB2 and a scoop of vanilla Shakeology then topped it with almond butter and fresh strawberries 👌
Transformation Tuesday! Left is at the start of my journey at 198 pounds, on one of my first 4 mile walks. Right is now at 136 pounds. -62 pounds. I know what it’s like to feel broken down, tired and worthless. I hid my fear and emotions behind processed, junk food and drinking pretending to be something I wasn’t. Deep down I was depressed and didn’t think my life amounted to anything so I didn’t try and never wanted to try ever again. I didn’t want to face reality, but in September 2012 it struck me. I was 200 pounds at my heaviest, I was obese, I was sick, my unhealthy habits led to having my appendix removed after a weeklong binge, I was a heavy drinker and smoker, my eczema was the worst it had ever been in my life and I couldn’t ride a bike down the street to save my life. But besides all the physical health problems I was having, inside is where it hurt the most. I was severely depressed, I slept all day long and had no goals or ambitions, I just wanted it all to be over. I was so vastly unhappy and desperately wanted to change. I realized what my life had become and I wanted no part of it anymore. This was not the person I had wanted to be and felt deep shame for letting it come to this point. After a night of crying myself to sleep after seeing photos of myself from that night and realizing all of this, I wanted to change and needed to change for myself this time. I’ve struggled with my weight my whole life, but always lost it for someone else’s benefit, only to gain it back and start the cycle of self-hate and self-doubt. In September 2012, I cut out all junk from my life, started drinking a gallon of water a day (I never drank water before), eating clean, juicing, and working out. There is no secret or fad diet that will make you change, only you can do that for yourself. Eating real foods, drinking water, exercise, determination and consistency will get you to where you want and need to be. To this date I have lost over 60 pounds, got rid of my eczema permanently, I’m getting stronger every day and the most important aspect is I am finally happy. I’ve put an end to my vicious self-hate and self-doubt cycle and not only am I happier and healthier, I love myself. I do not want anyone else to feel the way I have felt. Stop hating and doubting yourself! You can do anything you put your mind to, really, you can. You can achieve greatness.
Okay so I know that lately I totally go on and on about how great meal prepping has been, how happy I am I did it, blah blah blah. So, I decided it was the perfect opportunity to share some great products, which also happen to be perfectly reasonable in price! I’m like a deal hunting feen, okay? Also an Amazon lova to the max, can’t beat that free two day shipping!
Here’s a List with Links of the Containers Featured in the Above Photo:
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!
My before and after shots do not show DRAMATIC weight loss. Don’t judge on that factor alone. The true success has come in fact that I am down a pants size and and stronger now than I have ever been in my life.
Day 38 of Insanity ( Day 3 of the second phase) and not to stray away from Max Circuit and Max Plyo, Max Recovery was tough and far from a recovery. I know I was supposed to do Max Cardio today but my knee was acting up from the high impact of Max Plyo so I swapped the days to get a little bit of respite. This was pretty much a glorified extreme yoga. There were no high impact moves but LOTS of static work, lots of push-ups and plenty stretching which was still enough to make you break a heavy sweat. There were exercises to specifically target your groin, hip flexors, hip rotators, glutes, abs/core as well as your chest, triceps and biceps. Today was used as a recovery day for me of sorts and I made sure I stretched well and replenished with carbs.
Post Workout: same fish, veggies and potatoes as usual. Quick fixings with plenty of nutrition along with my protein shake.
The other picture is a progress pic from day 1 to day 38. When I’m done with insanity, based on my schedule, I will do a combination either Beach Body Focus T25 or Insanity again and I will include weight training as well
