Little late today for #workoutwednesday
: *These past two weeks have been a little bit of a struggle. Been eating way more than I should and more socially. It kind of sucks that our culture is very food and drink centered when it comes to being social..tho I wouldn't change it bc of the memories formed. *Good thing is, I have been working out still.. I took an extra day off during the weekend bc I got sick, but then it was back to the grind.. for me personally, weight and food is very much a psychological thing... I feel like I've grown up with a bad body image.. I've had a lot of friends with high metabolism, I've been told numerous times by family members how I "gained weight" or "need to get back to working out".. *Which leads me to a point: its great having a support system around you... but I feel like sometimes when people say things a certain way, it can make things worse if you are not dealing with the issue mentally.. I love my bf...his encouragement a lot of the time is, look you're losing weight, or I can tell a difference, etc. Which are all great things.. but in my head, bc I have such a poor image, it almost makes it worse...I will think, "well I don't see it.. you're crazy..I'm not really getting anywhere"... *We all have different goals when it comes to working out. Some are short term; I wanna lose x amount of weight. Some see it as a lifestyle change which is more my pace.. either way, there's a lot behind it. I struggle every day to change my mindset on food.. or taking compliments, & seeing how much has changed in this past month and a half.. for me, it'll be a process... I could tell myself yea, let's do an 8 week challenge & lose 20 lbs.. people do it all the time.. for ME, that's not realistic...for me it's about maintaining and diving deeper into it. Its different for everyone & that's ok

To my new & old clients, ladies remember diet/exercise is NOT one size fit all, what works for me may not work for you. I'm here to guide you through your fitness journey as best as I can & not expecting you to eat/train like me. All I expect from you, is to get out of your comfort zone in terms of eating, try something different, do workout you never dared to do before, find your oomph & OWN it. My own personal training/eating habits may not work for you, so don't feel like you have to be in my zone to get the same results.
Girl, sometimes I don't do me & I have my moments with food & lack of motivation to exercise. But you know what? it's all fine with me as I have learned to listen to my body, eat what benefits ME & exercise to stay well & functional (& not just to maintaining my 8 packs,tiny waist etc ,those days are long gone as they don't serve me any purpose anymore #alhamdulillah
)🤗. Remember every changes you make is for YOUR own benefits & you pay me to give you that extra push, support & not to boss you over your diets/exercise . Remember personal trainers DON'T make you lose weight, they are there to help you when things gets taught. So if they put you through a gruesome session, tell you what to eat/do outside sessions & you don't follow it, ITS YOU not them (or the gym). You need then to step back & ask yourself, how bad do I want this & how important is my health/reaching my goals 🤔? If it took you years to get out of shape, DON'T expect few sessions & lack of self discipline to turn you into catwalk model.
Ladies I'm here for you steps by step, but remember it's YOU who are in control what's goes in your mouth. Kids back to school, weddings season are almost over so let's do this #inshaAllah
👊🏾👊🏾👊🏾 Got nothing but love for ya😎😘😎 #healthylifestyle #wellness #healthandfitness #gymstruggle #ptlife
Anyone else do this... put gym clothes on and lay down??? #gymstruggle
I STRUGGLED with consistency when I had a gym membership. I SO badly wanted to reach my health/wellness goals, but I also remember that I so badly desired to work with a trainer thinking that this was the ONLY way I’d actually get where I wanted to be, right? Someone telling me exactly what to eat, which machines to use (because I would just do what I thought was best for my body 🤨), a nutrition plan made for me, etc. Of course, being a college student, working part-time (sometimes two jobs) I definitely couldn’t afford a trainer! SO, you bet your booty I always went for the next greatest deal — like the, “penny down, $10.00/month”! I even tried the $20.00/month membership because with this one, you could bring a guest for free and you could get a training session with a trainer.
Yep, I tried recruiting family / friends as accountability partners (SEE PICTURE ABOVE FROM 2015 😆), but that only lasted SO long. Yep, I tried googling and searching on Pinterest for different meal plans to make, but when the weekends came, I’d get SO thrown off track due to lack of proper planning, support and no actual system! But, what did this do for me? What was I getting out of this? How would this keep me CONSISTENT?
Staying on track and staying motivated can be more difficult on some days — BUT, it’s even MORE difficult when you do not have a community of support that uplifts you and motivates you on the days where you just CAN’T! It’s even more difficult when you don’t have a nutrition plan and when you don’t know what in the world you’re doing when entering the gym: hopping on the treadmill and then using random machines and never really increasing weights or changing things up throughout the week. How is this strengthening or building? I DID THIS FOR FAR TOO LONG. 🤦🏽♀️ Can you relate to this struggle?
SWIPE LEFT TO READ THE REST BECAUSE OF IG’s CHARACTER LIMITS 🤷🏽♀️ Be inspired and think about what’s holding you back from digging deeper and going to the next level of YOU. 💛
Starting to come up with new menu ideas for my meal prep. Keeping fresh and fun!!
All my workout suff and clothes, now have a place to go 🙌🙌🙌 Everything had became out of control 🤦 it was horrible. Now it all has a place to go, including my gym bag 😍
. **this project is not done yet 🙃**
Just gonna chill here in the floor.... I can't feel my legs 😬
Being in the new office...its twice as big to walk and the floor is ceramic tiles, its killing our legs. I did not want to put leg day off 🙄 well I did, but knew I shouldn't. .
So, now afyer struggling through this workout, in a busy gym today... I'm resting in the classroom floor 💁. (Just so I can walk out of here and not crawl) 😜
After a weekend of manual labour it's the first day I've had the range of movement to actually make it to the gym!! #Gym #ShoulderDay #gymstruggle
