IG @jesskeepgoing_ Part 1 of 2 watch my newest post for part 2 . ⚪️FULL ROUTINE⚪️ . . Alternate shoulder presses 4 presses per shoulder = 1 rep💀 x 8 sets Jump squats w/ dumbbell 8 reps x 3 sets Jumping jacks w/ dumbbell 12 reps x 2 Barbell shoulder press 6 reps x 3 sets Shoulder press into bicep curls 6 reps each x 2 sets Single dumbbell shoulder press 15 reps x 2 sets . Pretty much my shoulders were 🔥🔥🔥 *To modify the jumps, go into a squat instead of jumping! Move slow and deliberate to perfect your form! If you’re a beginner you do not need any weights! Use your body weight and get your form down :) Btw, this video is sped up to fit everything and in no way am I moving this fast😁 . Really challenged myself by incorporating 30lb dumbbells in my 20 minute HIIT workout! Some may say I should stick to just cardio and THEN incorporate weight training afterwards but i completely disagree! My body has changed so drastically from where I first started that I know doing strictly cardio could have never accomplished! Understand that your goals and my goals are two entirely different things. You might be aiming strictly for weight loss right now and that’s cool too but I want so much more out of this!  When I started lifting weights I started with 10lb dumbbells! And they were not easy for me. But I worked my way up diligently. Sure it wasn’t always easy. But your PERSPECTIVE of it is what makes it a heck of a lot easier! No matter how many times you feel like you’ve screwed up you can always decide to keep going. Let go of all fears and self sabotaging already and just go for it! And if you mess up again, so what try AGAIN. This journey is definitely something worth staying on! Take your time, listen to your body and have fun with it. And if it gets too hard, lighten the load if you have to! Put a weight down, shoot put down both weights😅 and just march in place if you have to. But don’t give up! 🎶We’ll all get there eventually🙏🏽🎶 . Favorite song at the moment playing: Jess Glynne- Don’t be so hard on yourself ❤️ #Jesskeepgoing #keepgoinggang #lesgo #BBBG #BigGirlsWorkOut #BoldQueens
(Can you tell how exhausted I am?😭) Got my fruit punch preworkout from @Fitonomy to give me all the energy I need and Im ready to put in some work! ❌No jitters/ ❌No crashes Code “JESS” saves$$ on their site!💚 the only preworkout I use🙌🏽 Even with the super busy day behind me, I now move forward and fulfill my training session I have scheduled with myself! Tired or not, If I say I’m gonna do something, I do it! I have been consistently giving my all for the past 2 months and have seen and felt the benefits💗🔥 Just believe in yourself, even if you don’t. Pretend you do and at some point you will! Hey, it worked for me!😁 hehe. Let this be the moment where you decide to stop starting something and then quitting shortly after! I say just go for it. Consistently! You absolutely CAN get your life together✊🏽 we got this🔥 #GROWTH #fakeitTILLyoumakeit #Jesskeepgoing #Fitonomy

Finally made time to get to the post office for my goodies🙌🏽!! I got the “her fat loss stack” from @Fitonomy code: “JESS” saves you $$ at checkout! and that bundle is actually on sale right now too so double discounts🙌🏽 I’ve been using Fitonomy products for close to 8 months now and the energy & flavors are BOMB. . The bundle comes with protein powder, (I got an additional one) CLA caps, burners, and BCAAS! Their preworkout (get fruit punch!) gives me just the right amount energy for my workouts! No jitters, or trouble sleeping at night! (Just don’t wait to take it like 4 hours before bedtime!) the CLA and burner caps help to boost your metabolism and immune system while also keeping your cholesterol levels in check! BCAAS are for muscle growth as well as muscle recovery! (Get pineapple!) And you know their protein powders are my GO TO’S for meal replacements! So good while it helps me cut down on calories🔥 I’m trying their “cookies and cream” for the first time and I’ve heard mixed opinions on that flavor so I’ll let you know what I think about it. At the end of the day I’m just sharing what I use and what works for me on my journey! These supplements are good but they will never work unless I also work! With the combination of my diet plan, my workout schedule, and Fitonomy, I’m pretty much unstoppable at this point😌😝🔥 #newmonth #wegotthis #Jesskeepgoing
@jesskeepgoing_ ・・・ What hard work looks like. What determination looks like. No shortcuts over here! Nothing was ever handed to me. Anything I wanted I had to go and get it. I look around me and I always had to work twice as hard as everybody else. But it is what it is! Eff excuses✌🏽Eat right and work your ass off. Find that mental focus and apply it in every area of your life! . . Do you know how difficult it is to unlearn and then relearn everything!? I was an extreme binge eater. I was an emotional eater. I was addicted to fast food. I ate at obscene hours of the night. I never had vegetables on my plate. I never drank water. There was no such thing as restrictions to me. To then be able to relearn how to eat better, eat smaller proportions on my own, know when to stop on my own, and avoid crap foods on my own, and no longer rely on food as a drug is NOT EASY. No gym membership, no trainer, no coach. Someone who ate like crap for years, who struggled for YEARS and who’s finally getting it right NOW is a blessing. This is what mental toughness and mental clarity looks like. If you don’t get your mind right, you will never make it. Late is better then never. I just wanna make it crystal CLEAR to those who are struggling right now, to WAKE UP. You already know better, now it’s time to do better. You do not need ANYTHING but YOURSELF to start and finish this weight loss journey! I know you’re struggling and I know it’s hard. I KNOW. But as you continue on, I promise you, you will get stronger!! What seems like a sacrifice to you right now will be a breeze one day. . . Hold on, keep your head up, and please, we must then KEEP GOING.❤️ GO TO www.waistsnatchers.com for more Xx #Jesskeepgoing #blackfitness #blackwomen #blackexcellence #happywednesday #transformationthursday #blessed #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #motivation #fattofit #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgirl #fitnessjourney2018 #melainfitness #blackfitnessmotivation #blackfitnessqueen #blackfitnesswomen #ebonyfitness #beforeandafter #theshaderoom #snatched

Lord knows my heart was in it!! But my body refused to cooperate!!😭😭👑👑 I ended up doing TWO challenges yesterday since I completely missed last Monday! And for the record, when I’m doing jumping jacks, my knees, back, ankles, joints, etc. does not hurt whatsoever! My thighs are just soreee. And sometimes I wanna cry. LOL. But my mind is much stronger than my body is at this point and as bad as I wanted to keep going, I physically CANNOT. 29 1/2 jumping jacks in one minute completed! . Btw, If you feel any type of pain or discomfort doing jumping jacks, modify it! And keep your feet on the ground! Everybody is working on themselves at their own pace. 60lbs ago I didn’t dare do a jumping jack because I know I would’ve most likely injured myself! Everything in due time! . And like I’ve said countless times before, I absolutely hate showing when I’m not my best. I didn’t want to post this because I hate to showcase my struggles! I always would instead like to show myself at my best! Alas, welcome to social media! Where everyone never has a bad day! Everyone shows their best parts! Everyone shows their best face, their best photos, best angles, best moments, their most prized possessions and greatest accomplishments! But if I followed through like everybody else, then I realized I’d be just. like. everybody. else. I can’t allow that. Then I wouldn’t be real. I HAVE to post these because someone somewhere is struggling too. They probably think they’re not even good enough And have lost a sense of hope. If someone looking at me, in the same boat as them can potentially make them feel like they can do it,, then I’m down! Who else is hoppin on this struggle bus?🎟 I’m ready for the downfalls galore. This journey is not easy. I struggle a lot. But when I come back I ALWAYS come back stronger then I was before! FACT. My Heavenly Father is currently molding me into what HE wants me to be and I’m like a puddle of melted wax right now😅❤️❤️ IM READY🙏🏽 The newer me will be better, stronger, more rare, more resilient, and fully prepared to withstand this world and all the challenges in it!💪🏽 #imready #jesskeepgoing #keepgoinggang #minutemondaychallenge
I had to officially take a break from the weights all this week and some from last week. As y’all know how I fell last week. I didn’t hurt myself too bad but I came down a bit on my finger and its now swollen😩 Can’t grip a dumbbell. (It’s getting better tho!) By the way, ya so mean, there’s over 1,200 saves on the video where I bussed my ass, y’all ain’t right😂 who saved ittt😭😭😂 . . I told @thereal_bjpatterson_judah I was now stuck doing cardio all week and how much it was going to suck without my weights😩 and he told me to use ankle weights around my wrists to still get arm and shoulder work done🙌🏽 So I went and actually got 2 sets to throw in for some leg work too! . Needless to say, the ankle weights kicked my ass and was super brutal because I had extra weight added on every limb. I not only completed weight training but incorporated HIIT moves because who says it’s impossible to die twice?💀 I seriously appreciate people like BJ who rather than just listen to me moan & complain and vent like a baby, will instead offer solutions to the problems🙏🏽 TY . If you want to start using ankle weights, start with light weights (3-5lbs) and work your way up! (BTW you do not need any weights at all to do this. Just UP the rounds! #letswork #noexcuses #Jesskeepgoing
Yoooo! First goal unlocked! 🙌🙏 I am under 350 for the first time in 3 years! Can I get a HELL YEAH!? I know I'm still overweight and all but I am proud as heck right now! I know I can lose at least another 25 before I hit Vegas end of October! #wlj #weightloss #journey #healthy #healthyme #healthyeating #fatgirlfedup #shiftingintoshape #keto #exercise #hellyeah #65pounds #down #another50hereicome #cantstopnow #obesetobeast #yes #imfixingme #jesskeepgoing #healthychoices #healthylifestyle
No it shouldn’t be we HAVE to work out, no we GET to work out 💪🏽 huge difference. When you turn your negative thinking into positive, suddenly it’s not that bad after all. The fact we woke up today and are able to move our bodies, is a blessing in itself. . Far from done. Always evolving and improving! Someone asked me in my last post if I ever feel like giving up. And I said how much of a strong statement to say I give up is. Take a break? Maybe. But never give up. To be able to even taste success, we’re gonna always be faced with some kind of temporary defeat. I say instead, take a break. Slow down. Collect your thoughts, reassess your goals and your life, but never give up! then get back in the game! It’s tough now, but keep going and you will eventually see your breakthrough! Long before anyone believed in me. I believed in me. You can be your own biggest supporter or your own worst enemy. Quit sabotaging yourself. You already have everything inside of you to win. Be thankful. And use your God given blessings. We got this!!!💪🏽💖 #Jesskeepgoing #keepgoinggang

As me and my business partner reviewed our goals last night the one thing we both agreed 2017 took some L’s but at the end of it we still have the shell and the model to rebuild.. lost money & profit doesn’t mean lost for product, lost brand, or lost business! The Real L is not doing anything with it! Let the whirlwind begin!! #beautifulcatastrophe #FailFast #JessTheRealtor #Failoften but #JesskeepGoing #jessbegrateful #indianarealestate #jesstipoftheday #illinoisrealestate #realtor #realestate #realtorlife
Last week - back squats, this week - front squats! 🍑 Longest Day of the year means more time at the gym with back-to-back classes tonight. --- #CommittedClub COUNT: 1️⃣5️⃣/20 --- #barbellclub #reignstrong #reignfitfam #frontsquat #squat #barbellbabe #Committed #consistency #jesskeepgoing
BACK SQUATS 🍑 Worked on weight and depth with the barbell crew tonight! Worked up to 80% of my 1 RM, but I know that number will change towards my goal of 215. --- #CommittedClub CLASS COUNT: 1️⃣1️⃣/20 --- #barbellbabe #barbellclub #backsquat #squats #workoutwednesday #reignstrong #jesskeepgoing #MolinaSweepstakes
COMMITTED TO BEING CONSISTENT. --- Consistency has always been an obstacle of mine in reaching my goals. I can be 💯for a period of time but somehow I tend to fall off and have to restart. This time, @reignfitness is starting a #CommittedClub in the month of June which members can join by attending 20+ classes. After watching the @crossfitgames #WestRegional this weekend, I am more determined than ever to continue to work on consistency! I jumped back into the gym by doing a double back to back ReignFIT & Barbell classes. Let's go! --- CLASS COUNT: 3️⃣ --- #consistencyiskey #consistency #committed #committobefit #crossfit #training #thesweatlife #bemorehuman #reignstrong #reignfitness #wholeJESS #teamnuun #jesskeepgoing
