#transformationtuesday ✌🏻 The hardest #lovestory I have every lived through is the one with #myself . As I write this, I wonder whether it should be shared. And then I remember the relief and release I would feel when reading other people's posts. So here it is. It has taken me over a decade to change the #negative , #toxic and damaging thoughts that used to swim around in my head. Through some #fierce commitment to myself, lots of #failed starts and shed load of soul searching I have managed to unlearn so many of the false #fear based stories I used to tell myself. And distilled it. Somewhere along the way I picked up that I wasn't good enough. 😔 And if I was ever going to change, I had to reprogram and rewrite that story. Did I feel good enough at the time? No. Not at all. But one day, one step, one book, one journal entry, one mediation, one honest conversation with #friends and most importantly, one loving internal word at a time I started to re-build the person I wanted to be. I stripped back all the layers I had stacked over my pain and dove back into it to feel it, honour it, cherish it so I could actually heal it. To heal the true source of lack, unworthy and hurtful feelings. I stared down all that pain and wrapped all the love I was capable of having for others around myself and myself only. I truly start to love myself and fiercely as I had loved others and my passions. And while I can't tell you when I suddenly changed, overtime all those layers came off and I felt a whole light lighter, happier and more full than I have ever been. I started to stop the nasty self-talk and re-program it with loving and compassionate voices.Does this mean I don't feel sad or still feel like sometimes I am not good enough, no. But it does mean that my programming and my willingness to see #love instead of #fear is so much stronger. 💪🏻And the woman I am is so much more resilient and unapologetically me that these things don't knock me down like they used to. So while this image isn't me showing you my #abs and flexing my back (which you can see elsewhere) it is my greatest #transformation . May some of these words help you on yours.🤘🏻❤✌🏻 #love#selfworth#selfbelief
I really enjoy cooking for my friends... tonight I sliced donuts from Publix like bagels, laid them face down on a hot skillet with bacon grease, fried an egg, added bacon, and cheese. The results are worthy of a top prize at a food truck cook off 😂😂 The last one I made I cut in fourths and ate one piece. It was amazing and was a perfect size for me to handle. Was this is a "good choice"? Nope. I should have eaten just the egg and bacon and had more protein, of course! Do I eat like this everyday? No way! I'm very proud of my friends who are in week 3 or so of the Keto Diet for not caving into this temptation, I cooked this at their house right infront of them!!! Thanks for hosting us @ketopharmd 😘
Every patient is unique in terms of anatomy and goals. What is the same between patients is my level of dedication to see each and every one of them through to those goals. This patient wanted a natural-looking result that fit her slender, athletic frame; 3 months postop, she looks amazing! Happy patient😀 = happy surgeon😷 _____________________________________________________ When looking for a breast surgeon, look for someone who (1) can show you examples of his/her work, (2) has a strong training background, (3) has favorable online reviews, (4) is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, (5) exhibits compassion and an understanding of YOUR goals, (6) takes their time listening to you and examining you, (7) gives you all the time than you need to have your questions answered, and (8) simply put, is someone you feel comfortable with on a person-to-person level.
3 Reasons NOT to skip leg day! - you burn more calories - increase your body's testosterone (which will increase your muscle-building and fat-loss potential) - you can eat like crazy after your workout 🍕🍔🌭 (your post-workout food will be absorbed efficiently to repair muscles & won't be stored as fat)
QUESTION: does anyone else out there have to watch out for little children while they deadlift 200lbs, it is it just me and I'm a bad parent? RAWR!!! Killed my total body workout just now! So proud of myself, training like a spartan finally.
Hi fitties!!! Six more days in Melbourne and today it's an absolute scorcher!! I want to get to the water later in the day but I took my cousin to the movies yesterday and then had a huge dinner and dessert after so I thought I should probably go for a run. It makes me feel like I'm using all of extra energy lol (that's my justification for two desserts anyway) I took my doggie along and did a very light 25 minute run but in this heat that's all it really took!! Feeling great now and ready to go for a swim! Sometimes I don't feel like doing weights so instead I just do something else. Fitness for me HAS to be enjoyable (within reason) so that's how I manage to keep working out consistently, it's all about listening to what your body is craving! Happy #transformationtuesday !!! : #cardio#run#hiit#sprint#motivation#sweatyselfie#kaylaitsines#bbgcommunity#bbggirls#strongwomen#fitnessjourney#fitfam#fitspo
This sh☝🏻 isn't random, I didn't get lucky. • My Transphormation started after having two babies 18 months apart. As you can imagine they took a toll on my body and self-esteem. I was left single, overweight, jobless, and very depressed. However, long story short I decided to get off my butt and make a new identity for myself! Who did I want to be? Easy. I wanted to be the person my kids thought I was! • My journey began. Not without fall backs, lots of tears of frustration, and some mini victories that kept me going, and before I knew it other things in my life began to change as well. I call it the ripple effect; one good decision leads to another, and another, and so on.. • I grew closer to God! I opened my own Dance Academy. I started training for bodybuilding and went back to school. I formed lots of new relationships, strengthened old ones, and let go of the bad ones. I lost 40lbs! And best of all, I have been successfully raising my two babies into healthy, happy, and incredibly smart (I'm a bit bias) preschoolers! • My story isn't over! This is just the beginning. I'm so excited to start a new journey with 1st Phorm and I can't wait to see where I'll be at the end of this year! I'm starting my 2017 Transphormation today and I invite you to join me! Link in bio ↗️ • Feel free to message me with any questions about it! I will be there with you every step of the way cheering you on, giving you advice, celebrating mini victories, and keeping you accountable. • I will also have a private Facebook page dedicated to everyone in my Transphormation group where I will post daily tips, workouts, recipes, and it'll be a place for us to connect through this journey! • • • #2017Transphormationchallenge#iam1stphorm#neversettle#legionofboom#motivationmonday
So this morning I woke up and had two choices. 1: Stay in bed, listen to Mr Brightside, cry and feel sorry for myself 😭 about something that just wasnt meant to be. or 2: Glow, Grow and Get the hell up off my ass and move on with my life 💪. I chose 2 🏋. I also lost my gym card but hey; No gym card?! No excuses. No Boyfriend?! Still no damn excuses! ❤ I went for a fasted run from titahi bay to elsdon, walked back and did 5 rounds of stair sprints! 🏃🏃 I am feeling good today and mum also bought me a 2.2L (@thebigbottleco ) water bottle so I feel even better now thats easier to re- hydrate myself 🏋💪🏃. Today is my kind of #transformationtuesday because a mental transformation is just as major as a physical one ❤ #IamMrBrightside#bbgcommunity#bbgprogress#fitspo#fitspiration
A journey that started with a FREE fitness assessment in March 2014 just to lose my stomach and get into a size 10.....has turned into a life transformation in so many areas of my life! I think back amd realize that the greatest lesson learned was that I need to stop settling because average I will never be! I also found healing because when I started this journey I didn't like my body.....I had been a victim of sexual assault, domestic violence, & cancer and that is all I saw when I looked in the mirror....now I see a survivor! #asurvivorslove To think I just wanted to get into a size 10 and not realize that I could push myself out of my comfort zone and transform my body to become a #strongfitseductivediva I started with a fitness goal of getting my body ready for my Boudoir photo Shoot...I think this year I will be ready! My transformation was done without surgery;starving, fasting, or fad diets (I eat every 3-4 hours); wraps; waist trainers; nor did I believe the hype of any 30-90 days transformation programs! There was no quick fix from going from fat to fit! I had to trade in my biweekly full set/fill in, a few lunch/dinner dates, or even a few trips to the mall....for 2-3 personal training sessions a week, healthy meal options, supplements, gym membership (even though Charlotte RIPS has a gym), and some cute gym clothes....but the end results were worth it! Sometimes I have to remind myself of how far I have come in order to motivate myself to keep going! Looking forward to see where #CharlotteRIPS will take me in year 3! #fitchickchronicles#boudoirphotoshootgoals#fitnessmodel#fitmom#fitsurvivor#fitmomof3#charlotte#clt#queencity#mcm#wcw#transformationtuesday#fbf#tbt#chicksthatlift#mealprep#weighttraining#cardio#fastedcardio
