Can we just talk about these for a minute? They. Are. Delicious! I grabbed them today for my daughter, Kamryn to snack on. They are sitting here on the counter staring at me! I am on day 10 of my 21 Day Ultimate Reset. I haven't had anything that hasn't been on my plan. I've been following it to a "T". Today I've struggled. I've had thoughts like "one little bite of ______ won't hurt" I've thought "is all of this cooking, prepping, planning worth the time and effort?!" But I know it is worth it and I will only be disappointed on myself if I go off plan. Holidays and being sick for 3 weeks in December took a toll on me. My jeans got too tight and a dress I used to feel fabulous in now makes me feel self conscious. As some of you know, I normally don't weigh, but I did at the start of this detox/cleanse and on day 7 I was down 3.6lbs. And while it hasn't been all glamorous and easy breezy, I know that this is so good for my body. My taste buds now think that fruit is as sweet as candy. I've found so many new foods that I love. My digestive system is getting a complete reboot. I'm going to stick with it. So, Lenny & Larry, I'm sorry. It's not you, it's me.
There is so much negativity that gets thrown around a daily basis, even on the holidays. Starting in 2017 I will start to surround myself with only people that have their best intentions in life, along with mine. I love people like that. 💢🤘💢🤘💢 I also have some extremely EXTREMELY exciting news. Do you like fitness? Do you like Netflix? Do you like working out from the luxury of your living room, hotel room, or on a boat? Literally I just found out I can workout literally anywhere I want as long as I have my phone or computer. Im pretty freaking pumped about that. I dont know about you but thats a badass Christmas/New Year gift to myself. #newyear#justdoit#noexcuses
I'm a little bummed out, guys. Because one of the things that bothered me this morning about Facebook was a very well known Christian speaker posted with some very unchristian per se posts. Look, none of us are perfect in our Christian walk. We ALL fall short of what Christ calls us to be. I am very included, Lord knows! But it has bothered me all day because I feel that it's unfair of this person to manipulate the truth of Gods word to millions and I mean millions of people. And please hear my heart- I am by no means the smartest person in the room with full understand of everything God himself thinks and does. I do know, though, that in this case- God is very clear. So I encourage you if that still small voice in your mind says "ooh- maybe I better check deeper into that." Please do. Don't blindly follow the masses. Search Gods word above all else, and if it seems wrong- it probably is. #love#seekhimfirst#dontcave
This is going to be the most challenging #10dayshred yet!! But I love a good challenge! I am so excited to have my daughter join me and be my shred buddy! It's never too late to start :) Your body will thank you! #willpower#dontcave#mexicoin3months
TEMPTATIONS. So... let me be honest here. My boss at work brought in a box of Dunkin Doughnut holes this morning. I have refrained from touching them all day. For some reason, now with an hour of work left, I get the urge to go get some. I'M NOT GONNA DO IT! I need to prove that I can be strong and resist the temptation! Prove my discipline. I have a Spartan race in a week and a half. I know it's going to be tough, so the last thing I need is anything that is going to bring me down! #WillPower#Determination#discipline#dontdoit#doughnuts#dunkindoughnuts#staystrong
This is the time of the year where the pounds start creeping on.... It all starts with Halloween🎃 Then Thanksgiving 🍗 And Christmas🎄 Did you know that the average weight gain is 10 pounds during these few months?? Don't turn into a statistic!!! It's easy to put on 10 pounds, but it's extremely difficult to lose those pounds. Set a goal for yourself to stay healthy this season!! Need some help to stay on track? Message me!!! I have 2 spots remaining for my next health and fitness group that's kicking off on Monday! Let's work together on reaching your goals!!! #halloweencandy#fighttheurge#dontcave#armendafit#faithfullyfit#cleaneating#freegroup#fitmomsrock#girlbosslife
I know some of you see my post and think "here she goes again". I also know there are others who see my post and realize it can be done. My goal is to help others while helping myself. I love when someone tells me I am inspiring them to do better. When I hear that it helps me to push through also. So I will continue to post to help myself and others.
I have struggled this week. I have had to many cheat meals and didn't work out as hard as I could have. Gained a pound and felt the dreaded question "why am I even doing this?" Then I thought of where I was a yr ago 17lbs heavier and wanting to be healthy and play with my kids. So tomorrow is a new day and I am gonna put on my big girl panties and move forward. We all have our set backs but it is only failure when we give up and quit.
