Too many times I still feel like an insecure, overweight girl like I was 2-3 years ago. It’s important to keep in mind that once you actually take charge of your life, no matter which stage you’re on and what the scale says, you’re no longer the old you. Summer in shanghai vs today. I’ve lost about 15kg. I didn’t keep track like I should since I was constantly on the move and I was struggling with my eating schedule. Here’s to a better me today and even better version of myself tomorrow 💪🏻 #progress
Pittsburgh Marathon training - 140 days out
8 miles 1:38:58 (my first “long run” since the Marshall marathon back in November)
Hit my goal pace 12:22/mi pace today 😁 -> my goal is to cut a half hour from my last marathon time -> which means I will need to run about a 12:30/mi average pace
What are your running goals for 2019??? Let me know in the comments below! ⬇️
Unedited, uncomfy, and insecure. I shared my transformation and now I’ll share a lil bit of vulnerability. No judgement please. This is the first time I’ve taken pics like this to share for my progress and Damn was it not easy taking these. It’s not always sunshine and unicorns behind a pretty pic.
Taking these pics the thoughts that were going through my head were, “why am i taking these i look terrible, people are gonna hate me, someone out there is gonna judge me regardless, i see all my stretch marks, my stomach, Messy hair, my acne omg!” these thoughts brought me all the way back to my old habit, habits that left me in a dark place.
I wanted nothing more than to delete them and call it a day because I didnt want people to see how ugly i think i am. But i owe it to myself and everyone following my journey that I provide the truth and these are. If you dont believe be go ahead and zoom in. I used to be so worried about the opinons and judegemnt but moving forward from my scared lil self I learned that those people judging me are people that wont add value to my quality of life. I simply didnt need their negativity anyway! I can create my own happiness.
Growing up I def had toxic friendships in my life, they affected me so much at one point on my OG insta i had deleted every selfie and almost 90% of my posts because I was insecure and i let all those people get under my skin. I wish I could be there for my younger self and cry with her and tell her how strong she’s gonna be in the future and how much she would accomplish. There so much I wish I knew and so much I want to share with you all! Accepting myself and those that spread happiness and positivity in my life has made all the difference. Accepting that NO ONE IS PERFECT and that we dont live in a world that is even close to perfect helped me feel more open to the idea that me BEING AN IMPERFECT PERSON is okay as long as I try to be the best version of myself!
I just know I never EVER wanna feel that sad, insecure, and alone again in my life, and I won’t let it happen. Maybe one day I’ll get even more real and share some of my deepest insecurities if you babes will have me?
~ Where have I been?🤷🏼♀️ ~
I feel as though I owe a slight explanation for my disappearance considering I used to post at least once daily and have always promised transparency with you guys✨
As I’ve mentioned previously, 3rd year is already 30 x more stressful and intense than any other year at uni and the first semester has only just ended😭 So yes, I haven’t had as much free time as I normally would have to get to the gym, post on here and all my usual things but that isn’t really the main reason for my lack of activity.
As most of you are aware I suffer with my mental health in terms of anxiety and depression but for the most part I have it under control and know how to deal with it. However, when a lot of stress comes my way I deal with it in one of two ways:
1. I use it to fuel me, I become extremely motivated with all aspects of my life and I work out any anxious energy in the gym 🧘🏼♀️🏋🏼♀️ 2. It consumes me, I become anxious about everything, I go in on myself, I become moody to those around me, I lose motivation for things I love and I shut down 💔
Sadly, for the last month or so the second has happened. It’s not really something I can control because it isn’t something I can see coming or even notice is happening🙄 I become an absolute nightmare to those closest to me and to myself and I never realise it.
For the last month or so, I have had 0 motivation for life let alone enough to get myself to the gym after a long stressful day at uni - which has always been my favourite thing!
Because of this I have lost so much toning and muscle definition and probably a fair bit of strength too which of course when you’re in a place of feeling down just contributes to this 😂
All that being said I already know I’m taking steps in the right direction now because I recognise my change in behaviour and why they have happened! I have a lot of work to do over this Christma
🔹Squat jumps to push-up 🔸Elevated lateral jumps 🔹Toe taps
🔸Elevated split squat jump
🔹Elevated lunge to high knee
🔸Elevated bosu ball pushups 🔹Bench jump overs 🔸Elevated tricep dips on bosu ball
This is a full body HIIT (high intensity interval training) workout that is Tabata style! ⬅️What does that mean⁉️ It means run through each exercise once for 20 seconds each with only 10 seconds of rest!! Run through the whole circuit 3-4 times! You have to perform this AT LEAST with 80% effort. Because you are running through each exercise for only 20 seconds, it’s important to give it your all!!! The two moves have all the stacks stacked together so either rack them right after and continue to next exercise or you can leave elevated as they are. YOU CAN DO THIS! It’s super simple and effective. (Simple in the sense that the exercises can be performed) Not very simple once you are in action with 80%+ effort. .
⬇️MODIFIED VERSION ⬇️
🔺Do the pushups on your knees 🔺Do the tricep dips without the bosu ball.
YOU GOT THIS!
Happy Sunday, girls! Here’s my cozy Mickey Mouse sweater and the beautiful Christmas Nativity scene my husband’s family does every year! I felt bad I was in a bogus mood yesterday when they were setting it up, but feeling sooo much better today, thank God! Sometimes I get stressed out this time of year, but I think you gotta take a step back at times and just breathe! Hope everyone is having a great Sunday and my Chicago Bears just clinched a spot in the playoffs...woo hoo!!! Good day! 💪🏻💕☺️ #fitgirlsguide #28dayjumpstart #bornworthy #fitgirlsguidephotochallenge
Die brandblusser? Handig voor wanneer mijn ass on fire staat door de eindeloze 🐸-pumps.
Who else splurged this weekend?! ✌🏻 But guess what? That doesn’t mean your healthy lifestyle is ruined! Get back to the gym tomorrow, get your meal preps done, do what you’ve got to do to get back on track! —————————————————————————————————————————— Current supplements: Blackstone Labs Viper X, Hype, Juiced up and Growth.

Did you say to yourself 12 months ago you would achieve X this year?
Did you tell yourself you would improve your health, lose weight and find true happiness and contentment with your body image in 2018?
If you did, did you see this through??
Did you change your body this year? Did you make an effort to try?
It’s so important I ask because 12 months have gone by and if you haven’t managed to achieve what you truly wanted back in January this is not ok but most importantly this isn’t your fault.... change is HARD!!
WE ALL have wishes and dreams come the new year, some more realistic than others. Every January after excessive Christmas indulgence I would hope It was going to be the year I would sort my unhappiness and emotional eating out. I so badly wanted to over come my problems for years but it was SCARY and for 22 years I put it off!!
I WISH I hadn’t waited 22 years, I could of found this true happiness and body contentment so much earlier.
If you have said to yourself ‘I must do something about this’ the last few years and you haven’t cracked it just yet, trust me.... you can crack it now..
You will never get the months back that you didn’t follow what you truly want but you can dictate how you use the time ahead of you.
That time and your decision to follow what you have wanted for years will be a life changing decision...👇🏼👇🏼
👉🏼 You will lose that weight
👉🏼 You will drop dress sizes
👉🏼 You will find comfort and confidence in how you you look.... this next summer needs to be the one that you have true contentment in your swim wear.
I have wrote ‘NEED’ because we cannot waste our precious time not feeling great about our weight and body image when we have the power to make a simple decision, to believe in ourselves and to go get that body you have always wanted.
😻🎄it’s the most wonderful time of the year.
