CARDIO FANTASIES ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธโœจ . Need to get in 15.. 20, or even 30 minutes of cardio and it is the one thing you DREAD from your workout? Do you want to know my secret to getting my cardio done? + giving your good ole self some entertainment and motivation? I am the girl who is on the treadmill sneaking in a cheeky smile or giggle from inventing stories inside my head ๐Ÿคช I use this trick for getting through any strenuous workout, steady state cardio or running. I would makeup any story, a crazy dream and visualise it all playing out in my head as if it were a movie. Anywhere from me cooking a feast of a dinner in the kitchen of my dream house, me scootering through Bali streets, even me eating a croissant by the Eiffel Towerโ€ฆ The possibilities are endless! It keeps me distracted, entertained and EXCITED & MOTIVATED ASF to make those come to fruition. Sometimes I catch myself walking on the treadmill with my eyes closed because Iโ€™m so into my fantasy - I probably look like a zombie to those around me, but ya do what ya gotta do to get shit done okay! Instead of cardio being a drag, now I get excited to get creative with my fantasies, let my imagination run wild and oh - will you look at that.. 15 minutes is up. And you are left feeling ever so happy and giggly over what you have just conjured up in your head. Give this a try if you struggle with cardio! What is your to-go cardio? ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป . #cardio #fantasy #imagination #dreams #creativethinking #cardioworkout #fullbodyworkout #mindsetshift #fantasize #dreambig #crazydreams #creativemind #lifestylegoals #empoweringothers #inspiring #lawofattraction #manifestation #liveyourpassion #mindsetiseverything #holisticapproach #discoverunder5k #influencerstyle #pursuepretty #visualcrush #thehappynow #everydaymagic #outfitpop #iheartmacros #trackingmacros #mymacros
Celebrating valentines early with the BEST flat white outside Melbourne โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข ๐Ÿ“ @bluestonelane
"Life is supposed to be a journey from one unique place to another" - @msrachelhollis I don't look at my weight loss journey as finding the 'old me' anymore, or getting back to "where I used to be". I stopped feeling the need to be a certain someone again. I believe so strongly now that life is supposed to be a story of growth and trials, of success and failure, a unique and beautiful painting made brush stroke by brush stroke. It's NOT supposed to be an endless merry-go-round that brings you back to one same destination repeatedly. It's messy, it's stunning. It's LIFE. And it's YOURS. And not only does it not look like anyone else's, but it can be one of your own making. You can be and do whatever you can dream big enough for. Remember that nothing that lasts is accomplished quickly. Nothing of lasting importance happened overnight. Results take time, and in my case, almost a year. And I'm STILL GOING!!!! There's so much still to learn about myself, and I CAN'T WAIT to get to know my potential a little bit better. Get off the merry-go-round ok? Because your life is meant to be a journey, and YOU DECIDE where that is, and where it goes. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’– . . . . . . . #60PoundsDown #BlatantlyBlaire #FitnessCarli #FitnessCarliMealPlan #IHeartMacros #IHMLoveYourBody #WeightLossSuccess #WeightLoss #FitnessMotivation #FitnessJourney #WeightLossJourney #FitFam #TransformationTuesday #GirlsWhoLift #ObeseToBeast #MyAdventureToFit #Transform
Donโ€™t Get To Comfortable. Life Can Change Right Before Your Eyes.
I have been eating terrible the past couple weeks. Well because, life happens. I am excited to get back on track with @iheartmacros macro counting. Considering doing one of her challenges for motivation, but not sure Iโ€™ll perform under pressure. I also donโ€™t want to feel pressure around food. Trying to build a healthy relationship with food and most importantly something that will be sustainable โœŒ๐Ÿผ โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #macro #fitness #motivation #lgunicorns3point0 #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #bbg #bbgtransformation #bbgcommunity #kaylasarmy #kaylaitsines #sweat #tiu #toneitup #runnersofinstagram #chickswholift #muscles #macro #macrocounting #iheartmacros #loveyourself

L I F T I N G W E I G H T Sโ € โ € 1. No, you will not get โ€œbigโ€ or โ€œbulkyโ€ from lifting weights.....you would have to be very extreme to EVER get hugeโ € โ € 2.

Smiling cause for the first time in my life, my tummy's flat ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ญ The ultimate NSV for me has been discovering that my body indeed can change, no matter what the scale says. No matter that I haven't lost a pound in almost a month. My body has changed DRAMATICALLY ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ I've kept working out, kept eating healthy; No matter how annoying that scale has been. In fact I put it away! I stuck it in a corner and haven't brought it out again. And let me tell you, it has been FREEING. I workout because I love how I feel. I eat well because I want to fuel my body with premium NOT regular. We are sports cars y'all!!!! NOT little go-carts. WE FERRARIS!!!! ๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿš˜ Let's treat our body like it!!

#NonScaleVictory from today? Wishing I owned more shorts ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™Œ These fit me at my heaviest, and now at my lowest. Bought em at walmart for $10 when I first went back to the gym, and they were TIIIIIIIIGHT but i didnt care all that much. I felt like a badass. I was like, if I dress like I belong here then one day I might!!! Fake it til you make it!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ And I did!!! My legs are getting even stronger now. The muscles in them are showing. I'm SO proud of what I've accomplished. (So basically I'm just trying to justify buying lots of $$$ pairs of shorts now is all ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚) New gym gear is exciting ok?!? . . . . . . . . . . #60PoundsDown #BlatantlyBlaire #GirlsWhoLift #ObeseToBeast #WeightLoss #GymShark #FitnessCarliMealPlan #IHeartMacros #FitSpo #FedUpFam #GoalWeight #FatToFit #CurvyFit #CurvyandFit #ProgressPhotos #GymSelfie #Goals #WeightLossSuccess #WeightLossStory #Motivation #LoveYourself #ProgressNotPerfection #SelfImprovement #GymShark

A year ago I was introduced to @iheartmacros by a friend! I was still fairly new to macros & thought Iโ€™d join in on one of their monthly cut programs, I learned so much but didnโ€™t make much physical progress. ***** I did another program for about 10ish months & learned even more about macros and specifically what my body reacted to through nutrition! Finding out so freaking much, but I seriously missed Quinceyโ€™s circuit at home workouts! ***** I went back to that custom cut I received last January 2 weeks ago! Iโ€™ve followed it pretty consistently & dropped pop!! Added ACV shots every morning & worked out 6 days/week! My arms have become more toned. My abs are becoming defined. ***** Iโ€™ve always been one to start strong & fade out after a couple weeks! I mean Iโ€™ve been on this fitness journey for 5 years! That seems like forever, but itโ€™s honestly turned into the lifestyle I crave! I used to dread working out & now I canโ€™t go a day without it! ***** My confidence as a woman & as a mom believe it or not has skyrocketed! I love who I have become in the last 5 years... so why do I share the progress pictures?? Because I was that mom who hid in the house in sweats and baggy clothes. I was the mom who cried every time I got dressed. I was the wife who didnโ€™t want my husband touching me because I felt so disgusted that I didnโ€™t lose that baby weight right away. You guys I was her! But one day I took control of how I wanted to look & feel & it all changed! I found what works best for me & I went all in! Never once giving up, but resting & re-evaluating what needed to be fixed but never losing sight of my goals! ***** So this... this is to show you new moms that you can totally do it! You can love yourself & conquer it all!! Youโ€™re strong & youโ€™re capable!!
Carbs were in low supply around dinner time tonight. (Yummy @emilybitesblog chicken sausage and tortellini soup, for lunch!) So, Fajita Chicken #ftw #iheartmacros #iifym #flexibledieting #macrocounting #macrofriendlymexicanfood #emilybites
So, I just realized I never did a post about the completion of the #ihmloveyourbody challenge that I completed in January. In summation, I lost 14 lbs (swelling from surgery in December and holiday hangover is a stinker!), lost 5.7% bf, gained 4 lbs of lean mass and feel stronger than ever! It was seriously amazing! So, amazing that I just signed up to do it again! @iheartmacros is starting the February challenge on Feb. 18! Who is doing it with me?! Guys, these workouts are LIFE! DM me with questions. Iโ€™d love an accountability friend. โ™ฅ๏ธ
Shout out to the old me. She's fierce, loyal, struggling but strong. She's a part of me still. #TransformationTuesday means knowing that the Blaire I knew is still loved and is still carrying me. She became so strong when she decided enough was enough. I love her. She struggled with feeling in control. She managed her mental health but just barely. She wanted more. So she got more. I. LOVE. HER. Every trip, every set back. Every single time she struggled She GOT BACK UP. And I'll be forever thankful for what she's taught me about doing hard things. She is still me, and I love her. . . . . . . . . . #60PoundsDown #BlatantlyBlaire #GirlsWhoLift #ObeseToBeast #WeightLoss #GymShark #FitnessCarliMealPlan #IHeartMacros #IHMLoveYourBody #WeightLossSuccess #WeightLoss #Stronger #FitSpo #FedUpFam #GoalWeight #FatToFit #CurvyFit #CurvyandFit #ProgressPhotos #GoalSetter #GirlsWhoLift #FitnessJourney #HealthJourney #Anxiety #Motivation #BeforeAndAfter #Journey #FeliciaFitnessHealth #WhitneySimmons

Never miss a Monday... Never miss a date with yourself! You made a promise, it was to you. Let's be honest with ourselves, let's push through this rough patch, or let's keep this healthy habit. Never forget how amazing you are. How capable you are. Your body is strong, it's carried you all these years. It's brought you through difficulties. Our mind is what we need to strengthen. Every bit as much as our body! Choosing to be accountable, choosing to keep your own promises. Accepting that right now you might have to do things you don't necessarily want to do, but in fact NEED to do. You'll be ever so thankful to yourself. You'll be even happier. So never miss a monday. Never miss a date with yourself. It'll be worth it I promise ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’– . . . . . . . . . #BlatantlyBlaire #FitnessJourney #GoalDigger #Promise #MindOverMatter #GirlsWhoLift #ObeseToBeast #WeightLoss #FitnessCarliMealPlan #IHeartMacros #IHMLoveYourBody #WeightLossSuccess #WeightLoss #Stronger #FitSpo #FedUpFam #GoalWeight #FatToFit #CurvyFit #CurvyandFit #FatGirlFedUp #Fit #HealthJourney #HealthyHabits #WeightTraining #GymSelfie #Goals #WeightLossJourney #FitnessCarli #FeliciaFitnessHealth #GymShark

Late Post As Usual! This is hard to post because I don't post many like this BUT I just finished the @iheartmacros #ihmloveyourbody challenge and I am SO PROUD OF MYSELF. โ–ช30 DAY CUT. Macro counting I am 8 months post partum from my second c section and I will say this time around I have given my body more grace than I did with my first. I had already come a long way, but then I ate whatever I wanted over the holidays. #yolo I was very bloated after the holidays so this challenge couldn't have come at a better time. I have always struggled with the eating healthy/binge eating cycle. I am an emotional eater. Quincey and Brandon gave me my numbers to follow for my daily macros and I did them to a T. No cheats. I worked out every day. Except Sunday. I set so many great habits into place over the padt 30 days. Did I lose a huge amount of weight? Nope. I lost 3lbs. But I lost way more inches and gained more confidence in myself. I am so glad I did this challenge. Thank you Quincey and Brandon! #ihmloveyourbody #30daychallenge #macros #fitmama #csectionmama #postpartum #fitness #weightloss #goals #8monthspostpartum #iheartmacros #strongmama #longwaytogo #happy

Day 2๏ธโƒฃ! How was your water intake for yesterday? Did you reach your goals of water consumption? If you did, amazing, keep up the hard work! If you didn't, no worries, try again today. You're all doing great! Yesterday's post was about @iheartmacros "JUST ADD WATER" challenge. For the month of February, challenge yourself to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water. This means, I personally am trying to drink AT LEAST 70-75 ounces of just water A DAY! That's not including other liquids I drink (i.e.: coffee, wine). Challenge yourself! Your body AND skin will thank you come March 1st! Then CONTINUE the habit forming challenge into March. ๐Ÿ‘
I did it! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ I wasnโ€™t perfect by any means but I learned a lot! I donโ€™t think I hit my numbers exactly even once ๐Ÿ™ˆ but I did track my food everydayโœ… & made sure to hit my protein goal. The biggest lesson I learned was that I donโ€™t get enough protein! Iโ€™m going to definitely stick to making sure I have protein every time I eat. I didnโ€™t do the workouts bc I was already doing BBG Stronger & hot yoga 5-6 days a week. Going forward Iโ€™m going to splurge a little this weekend then get back to the numbers Quincey sent me on Monday. Iโ€™ve loved all the recipes & the community on FB!

No filters just pure vulnerability. Most people know that a couple years ago fitness became a priority for me. It started as wanting to lose weight and get back in shape after having Luke but now itโ€™s just been part of my day to day life. Iโ€™m not always motivated and often get discouraged but damnit I have to be proud of the effort Iโ€™ve put in and how hard I bust my ass to better myself! I wake up at 3 am and go to the gym most days so my boys wonโ€™t miss me after work. Clearly I had a few too many treats October-December but ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ The first picture is January 1-February 1 thanks to @iheartmacros 30 day cut I lost 7lbs, an inch from each leg and an inch and a half from my hips! I love Quincey and her workouts are my FAVORITE! The last month I didnโ€™t have one cheat meal, no treats, meal planned/prepped every week and pre logged my food. I remember why I love counting macros because it WORKS! The last pictures are my very first โ€œbeforeโ€ pics and now ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ Do I have abs? Nope. Do I have thick thighs and stretch marks? Yep. But thatโ€™s okay because thatโ€™s me and this body gave me two of the most important people in my life โค๏ธ #iheartmacros #loveyourbodychallenge #ihmloveyourbody #weightlossjourney #thickthighssavelives #fitnessjourney #healthy #fitness #macros #countingmacros #momswholift #loveyourself #selflove #progresspic #momoftwo #losingweight #gainingmuscle #endomorph
GUESS HOW MUCH WEIGHT I LOST... I have no idea! I am a addict I am addicted to the scale and that scale told me how my day was going to be and how much I should love myself that day! NO MORE! I seriously took on the challenge to LOVE MY BODY. The first picture makes my heart so sad as it shows what kind of year I had and I did what I did best took it out on myself! I was not 1,000 percent like I usually am I was patient with myself If I had a binge day (which I had a few) I stopped beating myself about it shook it off and tried to figure out why I did what I did. If I was starving I ate vegetables or added some protein in. I programmed a treat in EVERYDAY so I had something to look forward to even if it was 3 Tootsie rolls. I did things because I wanted to love my body.. Still a journey I am sure I will be on for a while! BUT I know that I do love my body 1,000 percent more than I did 30 days ago! @iheartmacros @bwhimpey.
๐Ÿ“ธ:@iheartmacros It's finally February!! Hallelujah! Did you see @iheartmacros post this morning???? I did and I'm doing it! Who is going to do it with me? It's drinking water, we can ALL do it! So get up, get those water bottles filled and keep refilling! I know, I am! It's her "JUST ADD WATER" challenge. For 28 days, you drink half your weight in ounces of water every day. C'mon, we can ALL accomplish this one. Start TODAY with US! Go check out her post to learn more. P.S. If you are not already following @iheartmacros..... You should. She's such an inspiration and a pretty smart cookie! Thanks for this much needed challenge @iheartmacros !
February 1st! I made it through all 3100 days in January...diet and all ๐Ÿ˜„๐ŸŽ‰. Not sure why I gain so much weight during pregnancy But I'm headed towards the right direction. ๐Ÿ’Ž . I shared an update on stories about what I've learned while 'dieting' and the number one question I had was about breastfeeding while trying to work out and cut calories. My honest opinion is if your worried about your milk supply just wait until your baby starts eating solids. That's what I did which is why I'm guilt free for still being a few pounds away from PP. Focus on breastfeeding first because the first few years fly! ๐Ÿ’• ๐Ÿ“ท #tbt to last year....#37weekspregnant #iheartmacros #februarybaby #momlife #bumpie #momlifeisthebestlife
Ready to start my 30 day cut tomorrow! Looking forward to all the challenges and victories over the next 30 days. I am someone who loves to have goals, and loves to accomplish them even more. Anything to keep me focused, motivated, and busy. Also Iโ€™m trying to work on eating more veggies and less processed food, so I think these numbers will majorly help.

Reminding myself often these days that I'm doing this as much for the physical changes as the mental ones. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ’– It feels good to push myself like that and conquer things like sprinting! When it gets hard and I want to stop I just tell myself, "Blaire you're doing amazing. You can do this!!! You can go farther than you think. Just keep going. Just keep running!! Look how far you've come!" Be your own cheerleader. Believe in yourself. We've got this.

My 30 day results thanks to @iheartmacros. I have tracked my calories for a year, and although I had lost all my remaining pregnancy weight, I was plateauing. I decided to try something new and am so glad I did. My over all goal is to get abs, lower body fat %, and gain muscle. It is hard to build and maintain muscle when training for a marathon, so I am excited to see what the next 30 days bring w/o marathon training. Thank you Quincy for helping me change the way I eat. I went from quantity to quality. I am finally getting enough protein, the right amount of fat and carbs, have less headaches, and more energy (despite getting no sleep and having a 1&2 year old and working full time). Eating better along with exorcise has majorly helped with my ppd/ppa, and I look forward to all the food I get to eat each day day (I have never eaten so much and not gained weight) along with working out. Looking forward to my future results as I continue to trac using @iheartmacros new method over the next 8 weeks! Side note- I have a lot of loose skin by my belly button due to having two transverse babies/ 2 c-sections in 13 months/ having diastasis recti. My body will never be how it was pre-kids, but Iโ€™m ok with that. My girls are the best things that have ever happened to me, and they are worth every stretch mark, scar, wrinkle, puffy circle around the eye, etc., that I got. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #iheartmacros #iifym #iheartmacrosmethod #healthy #healthyeating #healthyliving #intuitiveeating #fitness #fitnessjourney #running #marathontraining #runningmama #pwr #ihmloveyourbody #santabarbara #wellness #wellnessjourney #mombod #newyearsresolution #newyearnewme #loveyourself #loveyourskin #csection #diastasisrecti
My 30 Day #ihmloveyourbody Challenge is complete!! โœ…๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผโค๏ธ Can I just say this was exactly what I needed to kickstart my body into shape. Iโ€™m 4 months away from my wedding and I wanted nothing more than to feel as great as I want to look. I also know now that Iโ€™m capable of anything when it comes to being challenged. My mind feels clearer, my skin looks better, my energy is higher, my body feels stronger and over all I feel unstoppable. I lost 10lbs โฌ‡๏ธ doing this 30 day program and thatโ€™s way more than I ever expected. Thank you Quincey @iheartmacros and Brandon for teaching me something new about macro counting, for all the tips & tricks along the way, and telling us that we are capable of doing anything in 30 days. Definitely up for another challenge! #bestday #30daycut #loveyourbodychallenge #thanksquincey #lookgoodfeelgood #beyourbestself #day30 โœ… #iheartmacros Also, thank you @joey__salami for helping me so much with food prep and keeping me on track โค๏ธ
This girl struggles with balance. Balancing being a mommy, wife, and the all other other stuff that come with life. I constantly am trying to strive for perfection in all that I do. But by doing do so I forget about myself, and being my best self. I โ€˜enjoyโ€™ eating healthy and working out I really do! But as much as I enjoy it I have to consciously reminding myself to stop, and eat. When I do eat I do typically eat well. But I go more days without remembering to stop. Sounds crazy I know- itโ€™s not that I am not hungry, I AM. But i have NO CHILL and am constantly doing stuff saying ok after this Iโ€™ll eat, then I move on to something else and so one. And really the stuff doesnโ€™t matter as much as fueling my body! Then finally by 9 10 (sometimes 11) at night when Iโ€™m crawling into bed and starving having nothing but 38 cups of coffee all day ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธI run to the kitchen and nothing is off limit ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿฅฌ๐Ÿฅฆ๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿช๐Ÿฅœ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅฏ๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŒฏ๐Ÿท๐Ÿท๐Ÿท Unfortunately my body and metabolism isnโ€™t like the other lucky people (kidding) who go without eating and lose weight, my body holds on to everything that I finally put into it and guess what ๐Ÿท So here I am, finally trying to STOP, BREATH and take care of myself. So to help myself 1. I set ALARMS on my phone to remind me to eat ๐Ÿ™„ And 2. I posted this obnoxiously long post and a before gym selfie to keep myself even more accountable ๐Ÿ™ˆ
Note To Self:: I donโ€™t have to take this day all at once. One step. One breath. One moment at a time.
2.5 weeks- Iโ€™m down 1.5% body fat and 5 lbs. My muscle mass hasnโ€™t budged which means Iโ€™ve lost all fat and no muscle!! Sometimes to reach your goals, it takes longer than you expect. Last time I did a cut, I lost 8 lbs in 30 days! My results were great and I was so proud of my hard work! I lost weight so quickly it cut into my muscle mass. That was discouraging. Iโ€™ve worked hard for that muscle mass. So this time around, I decided to be patient and take my time to reach this goal and my patience is paying off ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ If youโ€™re counting yourself out of reaching your goal because of how long it might take to get there, donโ€™t give up!! Trust the process, keep putting in the hard work, and watch the results unfold over time! #workoutmotivation #fitness #weightlossjourney #girlswholift #momswholift #fitnessmotivation #postpartumbody #postpartumfitness #loveyourself #hardworkpaysoffs #weightloss #ihm #iheartmacros #countingmacros ๐Ÿ–ค Ps- I have women DM me who seem to feel silly asking me questions... 1. I donโ€™t know it all! Iโ€™ve had success but Iโ€™m still figuring so much of this out for myself too! 2. The only way we all learn is if we ask!! So ask away!! Iโ€™ll do my best to help!

I have been tracking my macros via @iheartmacros for the last 8 weeks. I had started plateauing by just tracking calories and wanted to try something new. In the last 8 weeks I have gained 2.7 pounds, gained 3.1 pounds of muscle, and went down 2.4 pounds of fat(I went from 25%-21.8% body fat ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ) I am pretty happy with these numbers especially since I have started marathon training in that time, and it is really hard to build muscle when you are running 30-45 miles a week! My overall goal is to gain more muscle, so I am excited to see how my numbers change once I am done marathon training. If any of you have been thinking about tracking macros- do it. I can still eat all the same foods I like, have more energy, less skin breakouts, sleep better, feel better, and can see my body changing for the better! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #pwr #sweat12wc #pwr2019 #inbody #marathon #marathontraining #running #runningcommunity #macros #iheartmacros #macrocounting #healthy #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #fitness #fitnessjourney #postpartumbody #ihmloveyourbody #ihmloveyourbodychallenge #intuitiveeating #iheartmacrosmethod

The face I make when he says,"let's Netflix & Chill" ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm the kinda girl who likes going out as much as I like staying in. I love me a good movie and a treat!!!! And my favorite treat at the end of the day is always ice cream ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿ˜ I can't help it!! It's just what I crave! And as silly as it sounds, changing my lifestyle to be healthier would never have worked for me if I'd had to completely cut out those things I love. So I didn't. I found lower calorie options of my favorite treat! And then I learned how to incorporate it into my daily calories. If you don't know where to start, start with small, healthier versions of your favorite things, and I promise it will add up to amazing consequences!!!! Find a plan you love, find a workout program that suits you. Work hard for the things you want, food and all! Because here's the thing. Balance is attainable. Health is attainanle. Joy is attainable!!!! You can literally have your cake and eat it too, guys. All things in moderation, and let me tell you, I'll preach that until kingdom come! Let's all make healthier choices, and continue finding joy in healthier versions of our favorite foods ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿฅ‘๐ŸŒ๐Ÿž๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿฅž๐Ÿ•๐ŸŸ๐Ÿฅ— . . . . . . . . . . #60PoundsDown #BlatantlyBlaire #GymHairDontCare #GirlsWhoLift #ObeseToBeast #WeightLoss #FitnessCarliMealPlan #IHeartMacros #IHMLoveYourBody #WeightLossSuccess #FitnessJourney #FatToFit #CurvyFit #CurvyandFit #ProgressPhotos #GymSelfie #GoldenHour #FitnessJourney #WeightLossJourney #FitFam #FatGirlFedUp #GoalDigger #HealthJourney #Fit #PersonalFitness #RealTalk

#GymHairDontCare first off. 2. Normal clothes instead of leggings? who am I even?? ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ Also. This morning my husband ate the rest of my favorite salad before I could, and I dont know how I feel bout the fact that I'm mad he finished my greens before I could ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฃ what's even happening here?!?!?

I eat salads now and LOVE them. I'm wearing jeans now because I'm COMFORTABLE in them and in my own skin. I appreciate where I am now, because I know where I've been. And even though I'm not where my goals are set, I'm ENJOYING this journey, because I'm learning and loving more every day. Anyways, have the best sunday guys!! I love you all!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–
Only 3 days left of the @iheartmacros #ihmloveyourbody challenge! I didnโ€™t realize the progress I have made in only 26 days until a looked at these pictures side by side. Would you believe thereโ€™s only a 2 pound difference between these before and afters? Weighing myself during this โ€œchallengeโ€ has been a challenge in itself. Iโ€™d get frustrated that the scale wasnโ€™t moving, or some days itโ€™d even go up. So I had to keep reminding myself I wasnโ€™t trying to lose any more weight. I was trying to gain lean muscle while losing body fat. And Iโ€™ve done just that. The scale canโ€™t tell me that. It canโ€™t tell me how my body composition is changing. It canโ€™t tell me how much muscle I have gained. It canโ€™t tell me really much of anything. And that has been a realization thatโ€™s been hard to come to. I depended on the scale while I was in my weight loss phase. But Iโ€™m not in that phase anymore, and have had to learn how to let go of that dependency. I pick myself apart, constantly. But Iโ€™m learning. Iโ€™m learning to be less critical. Iโ€™m learning how to love myself on a deeper level. And Iโ€™m learning to be proud in my accomplishments, no matter how big or small. So, this is an appreciation post for myself. Not bad, Me. Not bad. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
You like my hair? Gee thanks! Just threw it in a bun... again ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ Current mood: listening to 7 Rings every second of everyday right now and living my best fit life. My arms are still flabby, I don't care. They're stronger than ever. My thighs are thick. Whatever. I can sprint and hold my pup on my lap with ease. My tummy is soft and so is my back, but all I see when I look at them now is #Progress All I see when I look at myself now is a woman who took charge of her life and DECIDED, didn't wait, for enough to be enough. Because a year from now you'll wish you'd started today. Well guess what? It's almost a year from when I started, and I'm beyond grateful I started THAT day. Start now guys, don't wait.

I will be spending tomorrow in the desert, pool side with a ๐Ÿน pretending itโ€™s summer and enjoying 24 solid hours of no one repeatedly asking me for a snack, to wipe their butt or break up a fight. Ahhhh thank god for quick getaways. But this pasty momma needs some help if I have any plans of showing off these legs. And @erinfitnessnlife gave me the absolute best referral. Saved me the inconvenience and money of having to go and get a spray tan. $15 was never better spent. But pro tip over here. DO NOT think for one minute the gloves arenโ€™t necessary. I did spend my birthday with neon orange hands ๐ŸŽƒ
HIIT me with your best shot ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ‘ Last night was HIIT, and if you watched my stories you know I almost took a flight off the back of my treadmill into some weight lifters ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I guess it had something to do with my #ShortLegs and rivaling need to be a speed demon? ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ GUYS.

Just sayin ๐Ÿ˜… A little dramatic? Maybe. But it totally helped me get from running my 15 second sprints at 9.5/10.0 to a whopping 11.5!!!! Mindset is everything, guys. What you think can either motivate you, or make you second guess yourself. I felt motivated by not being eaten. Find yours!! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ

Great workout ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Great music ๐ŸŽต Great start to the day โ˜€๏ธ โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”- Iโ€™ve been distracted a bit all week and a little all over the place emotionally. I had begun the process of opening a business and it was the first time Iโ€™d felt really excited and motivated in a long time and that all fell apart this week. Itโ€™s left me feeling confused. I can not tell you how badly I wanted to be a stay at home mom when I was a single mom to my son. I would have given anything. But as of late Iโ€™ve wondered if itโ€™s enough. Can I do more? Should I do more? Am I setting a good example as a womanโ€™s for my girls? What will I do when they donโ€™t need me as much? All these questions and Iโ€™ve come to the conclusion that I have time. I can do all that at some point. I canโ€™t get this time back with them. Emma is getting more independent daily. Evan is almost a teenager and will need me more now than ever. And well Abby...she still thinks sheโ€™s attached to the umbilical cord so Iโ€™m not worried about that ๐Ÿ˜‚. Being a woman is hard but so amazing all at the same time. Todayโ€™s workout really helped to clear my head and get me to this place. Do you all ponder lifeโ€™s big questions while at the gym, or is it just me ๐Ÿคช

Birthday smilezzzz ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’– Upper body, back & shoulders on my bdaaaaaay! Honestly, even on my birthday when strawberry cheesecake is in order, chick-flicks on repeat, and a home cooked meal is #Happenin , working out is STILL my favorite part of the day. It's my "me" time. Yesterday @lauren.stewart_dc and I talked aaaaaall about self care and being worth it, and this for me is EXACTLY what that means. It's a small part of the day that adds up to a happy woman IMO. It's a mental push and a conquering moment I need to know, "YES. You are worth the effort, the self love, and the time. So take it." Do what YOU need to do today to help you be you ladies!!! If that's a quick workout, a face mask and Netflix, or a nap. Do you boo.

Transformation Tuesday!! I wanted a healthier life for myself. So I got it. I worked hard for it. I've pushed and pushed for it. I listened when I was tired and I rested. I fell so many times. I always got back up. I've made it a lifestyle, changed my ways. No diets, just learned healthy eating. No gimmicks or skinny teas, only healthy food (my favorite high calorie foods in moderation) and exercise. And I say it all the time, but if I can do this? ANYONE can. You can. Believe in yourself. Find a plan you love! Dont be afraid to shop around. My heart is thankful I found @fitnesscarli when I did because her eating plan saved my quality of life. Just as thankful for @iheartmacros who made me fall in love with the gym!!!! Those two are so real, so raw, and so loving. Just know that I'm always here for you guys!!! I'm one dm away. There's never a dumb question or a silly comment. You're my favorite part of the day!!!!! And as long as you need me, I'll keep this account and keep inspiring you. I love you all!!!!!!

โ€œIโ€™ve been sticking to my fitness plan and nothing has changedโ€ How many times have we heard this or felt this way ourselves? Raise your hand if this has been you. ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ Usually we feel this way because the number on the scale hasnโ€™t changed. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ Am I right?? Ladies!!! Stop basing all your progress on a number!! First of all that number can fluctuate for so many reasons! Time of day that you weigh, too much sodium, you have to ๐Ÿ’ฉ, itโ€™s that time of the month. We can see weight fluctuations as high as 5 lbs. Donโ€™t get me wrong the scale can be a great tool of measurement if used correctly, BUT if it makes you feel defeated donโ€™t use it. The scale doesnโ€™t tell the whole story! There are other ways to gauge progress! If you can check any of the boxes below then itโ€™s safe to say you are on the right track!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ 1. Your junk food cravings have mellowed out! ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿก 2. You are reaching for heavier weights! ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ 3. Youโ€™ve never felt more rested. 4. Your appetite has changed. 5. Your jeans fit differently. Before you throw in the towel look for other indicators that your plan IS working and stay off the dang scale. #ihmloveyourbody #progressnotperfection #progress #strong #strongnotskinny #keepgoing #loveyourself #macros #transformationtuesday #transformation #iheartmacros #instafit #fitness #fit #fitspo #livelife #behappy #liftheavy #burpees #hiit #plyometrics
