Follow-up to yesterday’s post! For some reason my current measurements didn’t load correctly. But here it is! I definitely look forward to starting back on the gym (for real this time, nothing should be holding me back) and getting my legs and arms more toned. One of my goals is to fit into tall boots without having to do the wide calf. I think I’ve still got a ways to go for that but hopefully I’ll get there!
“Self-worth is so vital to your happiness. If you don’t feel good about you, it’s hard to feel good about anything else”
I’m coming into my power. I’ve chosen my name and that is powerful. Identity is tied to how you refer to yourself and what others call you. Do you ever think 🤔 what would life be like if my name we’re different? Or my pronoun? What is in a name? This given and chosen? I suppose as much as you put into it. I’ve read that people with difficult upbringing will change their names more often. “I am not that person anymore!” Do you ever feel like that? I do. As a kid, my last name was always a guess and my first name sounded like I was in trouble. Bye 👋 Felicia (great name, not mine)!

Life gave me a run for my money this week! So much so that I am JUST getting to photograph the last dish that needs a photo for tomorrow’s online cooking class recipe booklet.
This is a sheet pan dinner with: lemon-herb chicken. (I used thighs here but will probably use breasts tomorrow...those in the class, I’ll explain why there!) With it we have Parmesan garlic zucchini and roasted butternut squash. (Before going in the oven...and swipe left to see it cooked!)
Mmmmmm...my house smells amazing right now. Plus this dish fits right in with the “Easy Weeknight Dinners” theme. I tested the recipe on a weeknight and it was very simple to put together and cook. And did I mention it all cooks on ONE SHEET PAN?
There’s still room in tomorrow’s class! When you sign up you can come to the class live or get a replay, and you get a downloadable recipe book with the recipes from ten class, pictures and a shopping list!
Check out the class at the link in my bio!

Absolutely gutted. That broke my heart tonight. Rabbitohs lost. I’ll always be South Sydney #sstid #ggtss
there were moments today that were absolutely unbelievable and I will treasure them regardless!! Only if you knew ☺️❤️💚❤️💚
You might wonder why I am constantly posting transformation pictures, but here is the story: this morning I looked down at the scale and was disappointed in a 2lb loss, I looked in the mirror and saw all my flaws and imperfections - it wasn’t until I looked back at the picture on the left that I felt amazing! I may not be where I want to be, but I am sure the hell not where I started - working on loving myself is hard, and I know that all this hard work will pay off - one day at a time! Keep pushing on my friends!! #keepmovingforward #reachinggoals #wlscommunity #weightlosstransformation #wlstransformation #transformation #losingelly
I want my d@$%n calories back 🤬! Carbs too🤬😡🤬😡! Like if you’ve ever felt this way!
No makeup, no filter, no lighting, no problem. I feel lovely in all my forms. 💕 My “whole self” is what I fucking decide it is on the night. And lately, I am showing up for me. I’ve had this epiphany that I am good enough. I don’t have to be what others want, I don’t need the judgement. I’m not “good ol’ reliable” anything! I am a wild and flowing river. I evolve and you will never meet the same river twice. The water 💦 is always changing, new, and a result of a lot of things working out well. I subject to my whims and the course is planned but prone to change. People build bridges because of rivers. People go places thanks to rivers. Real estate is valuable on the riverfront because people want to wake up and gaze into the magical. I am epic! Yes queen! 👑 #wls #wlscommunity #radicalselflove #selfcare #empoweringwomen #feminist #witchesofinstagram #witch #intersectionalfeminism
Tired as shit... but got up to run. Did more walking than running. My shins are killing me lol.
I've stopped weighing my self because I be same obsesed with every single pound. When you are on the road to recovery from an eating disorder, like I am, things like that become triggers.so I've decided to let my pictures and clothes help to keep on check. Of course I do weigh myself but I do it only once a month. My sleeve has made be honest with my disease and take responsibility, I am for sure taking more steps (like starting teraphy with a addiction specialist). It has also forced me to be more kind with my body and love me more , cause it ain't easy.
I had more hair on the left but you can see how I feel about it now (I don't really care). That's that. #vsg #vsgfeelings #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlossjourney #wls #wlscommunity #vsgstory
The first thing I did on the first day of Fall 🍁🍂🍁🍂 #creatingnewhabits
I want to slowly build up to longer distances so I did 4 miles today. I also went to a park with hills. I usually avoid hills like the plague, but I know that I need to start hitting them-even if it slows me down initially. It’ll help in the long run so I just gotta do it lol. It was great weather for a morning workout. Happy Fall, y’all! 😃🍁
🧀🧀😂😂 this is so me ! Usually a light cheese stick though !

LOVE YOU ZADDIO 😁😘"
