Excuse my filthy ass mirror 😑 but y'all just need to understand the joy deep in my heart this morning over the new person I see in my "one pair of too little jeans" that I know ALL OF YALL HAVE. You know the ones that sit in the drawer or on the hanger crisp and clean because you know how real the muffin too is once you put them on. I looked at them this morning and thought "I don't even care it's my only pair of non skinny jeans I'll just wear a big shirt" but DAMN I was so pleasantly surprised!! They're still a little tight but I am loving me in them🙃🙂🙃🙂 #goodmorning#fitness#fitlifestyle#nashville ❤️🌸✨ #beauty#plussize 💋
There was a quote I read years ago that had a tremendous impact on my life and helped me get here. It went, "I know what it's like to fail, I'd like to see what happens when I don't." In order to get results you've never had, you have to become okay with doing things you've never done- I hope that speaks to you the way it did me 💗👯♂️💪🏼 #ellekayfit
A TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY of a different kind 😆 Bear with me, this is a longer post, but worth the read! . One of my goals as we started talking about starting a family was to be in the absolute BEST shape of my life right before I got pregnant and that's EXACTLY how I felt in the photo on the left at 30 years old! . I had struggled with my weight and body image for so long, self-love, not liking at all what I saw in the mirror, always picking every inch of my body apart and thinking why can't my thighs be smaller or my stomach be more toned! . But in that photo on the right all of that had gone! I felt BEAUTIFUL and CONFIDENT! I felt in CONTROL of what I put into my body and I trusted completely the plan that I followed because it had gotten me to that point! . Fast forward to the photo on the right at 35 weeks pregnant and I STILL feel those things although my body has changed drastically! . Yes there have been times of STRUGGLE, especially early on in my pregnancy when I was putting on weight but didn't really look pregnant! After being on a weight loss journey for so long to be on a weight gaining journey and to see my waistline, legs and booty expand was incredibly mentally challenging for me at times! . I found myself slipping back into those old mental patterns here and there, picking myself apart in the mirror, but BECAUSE I knew there was a purpose to all of this I was able to move past it and conquer it for the most part! . Now as we near the end of this pregnancy journey, although I'm slightly NERVOUS about getting that pre-pregnancy body back, I also KNOW that I have the plan and the tools to follow to get me there, and that has lifted a huge weight off my shoulders! Nervous YES, who wouldn't be, but worried NO! . It's a completely different state of mind than I would have been in, if I hadn't already helped so many other women do it with the plan I will follow and see the results they wanted! . If you are in the same place I was before that initial photo on the left, when I was in a deep place of struggle OR want to get that pregnancy weight OFF and are ready to take a step on your journey, comment below, I'd love to give you more details!
so I hit a new 1RM on my deadlift... 235#! so excited because I'm up 35# from winter break 🏋🏼♀️ I've learned that I can't let myself know the weight on the bar when I'm going for PRs. if I just keep throwing weight on the bar, then I can't hit my mental block before I hit my physical max! it's so hard though because I have to keep distracting myself so I can't do mental math 😅😅 but I can say that there is no better feeling than having my coach walk over and finally tell me the weight on the bar 💪🏼

These shots I got taken over the weekend were amazing. I love sports so much. No matter how old I get, I will continue to play something at all times. Softball (competitive) basketball, golf, hockey. Find something you have passion for and never let it go, regardless of age. I'm feeling a little better today, think I'm going to go sit in the sauna and do some abs this morning. Sweat out what ever the hell I got in my system. Hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday.
It is easy for a girl to make her self look pretty and attractive but true beauty is rare, it is something that comes from within... @schoonraad_kiyano you shine with beauty and I am a lucky man to have you in my life and so is anyone else to be apart of it
