My hands might be getting smaller but I still manage to injure myself all the time #clutzlife
. It’s crazy seeing things you didn’t even care to change, change. My fingers weren’t exactly in my top 5 body places I focused on but I’m certainly happy to watch the progress.
a thing 🤣
Officially started #fatgirlfedupdietbet
transformer this week. Not proud of this number but it's my start. Gonna start off on the right foot!
Injury update: my lunate is back where it is supposed to be!
Unfortunately, I still have a ways to go for my arm recovery. My body isn’t getting enough flow to the nerves in may arms because of a mixture of past injury and of how I carry myself in general- slouched shoulders, bad posture, etc.
I’m looking into getting a butterfly support for my shoulders and back, and I have an array of exercises to practice to strengthen my right side, and my back and shoulders as well.
I had IMS done today as well to help stimulate my muscles in my arm that were previously so strained and tense they barely moved when manually manipulated by my PT. They were less tense today, but I have to avoid using my arm still, and continue to keep my brace on for the foreseeable future. (Which would have been fine through the cold months but now the sun has been out and a) this thing gets SO hot and sweaty and b) I don’t want a gimpy tan line!! 😂) Anyway! I am continuing to go to the gym with an adapted schedule- with PT’s and my Trainer’s approvals.
My legs were DYING today from Tuesday but I showed up and tried!
Also, PSA: NEVER FORGET TO DRINK PRE WORKOUT!! 😩😩😩😩
Seriously, I won’t make that mistake again. 😬😅
Happy Thursday everybody! I’m officially on vacation! 🥳

An awkwardly lit lunch eaten awkwardly in the car. I guess you could say “awkward” is my brand 😅. Anyways! This is the Mac Attack and it always cures my McDonald’s cravings 🙌🙌 at a fraction of the points. I found this recipe by searching on Pinterest “Mac Attack”. Mac Attack 6sp
Lite 1000 island 2sp
Bacon ranch cheddar dip* 2sp
This is a dip I bought in my last grocery haul. It’s @walmart
brand marketplace found in the deli. It’s 2sp/tablespoon. I am a firm believer in spending points on things that get you to eat your veggies: dressings, cheese, dips, sauces, butter, etc. if it helps you get your nutrients, then spend the points!
Ok so if you have been following my journey so far y’all know I am like fan girl crazy over Lexi from fatgirlfedup! She is such an inspiration and a huge part of my journey an success! So I joined her diet bet game last month for the first time and won! After the game she posted a giveaway for her tribe and I won these!!!! I was so excited I never win ANYTHING! One of my big goals is her yearly giveaway and I cannot wait! #fatgirlfedup #fatgirlfedupdietbet
Working in a restaurant is hard, but honestly it was just another excuse standing between me and my goals. If I just spend a little extra time planning my meals and snacks, being surrounded by all those fried goodies is slightly easier. For this beautiful salad, I took turkey taco meat, Doritos, cheese, and a ranch/salsa mix to add to a salad at work. YUM!! And this is so easy to adapt to be higher in points, or even lower. Taco salads are one of my fav go to meals.
1/2 small Doritos package 2sp
Reduced fat cheese 2sp
Light ranch 1sp
You are the only excuse standing between you and your goals. What can you do to change that right now?
D A Y 5 2 • What are your best ‘before photos’ tips please?? Apart from taking some haha. I held the most depressing photo shoot ever this morning and snapped all sorts of photos of my body to have as before photos. I’ve already lost quite a bit of weight but have very few full length photos of myself because I’m queen of avoiding the camera!
Good old faithful, #thefeliciacombo
for 4sp and keeps me full for half the day.
2 eggs a la @ww_ashleyf

for my diet bet groups. My weight is still see-sawing from my last unofficial weigh in. It’s not fun to watch my percentages go backwards. It’s still early though. The number on the scale isn’t a definition of me or a grade. The scale IS a useful tool that I check daily for fluctuations as I try to balance my hormones and move from insulin resistant, Leptin resistant to only “sensitive”. I need the data from my scale to assist me (not define me) in moving to a healthier me.
It is what it is, I’ve already hit that reset button and I’m moving forward.
If you need to hit that reset button, go ahead. What are you waiting for? A Monday? That’s 5 more days of decisions that are no longer benefiting you. Make the change TODAY.
Yes! Day 78 of 80! Today was a mix of weights and cardio - each time I think I have a favorite, I like another just as much. (Leg Day wins though)
I can’t believe I’m so close to wrapping up my 5th program in a little over a year. I never thought it would be this much fun. 2 more to go!!
