All my life I have gone through the motions of life.. doing what I’m “supposed” to do. Following what my head tells me. Ignoring my heart. Following the plan. School. Work. Money. • • But recently I have realized the importance of following your heart over everything else. Because you can have everything in the world- but if your heart isn’t happy, if your soul isn’t content... then what’s the purpose of it all? Sometimes following your heart means risking it all.. and sure.. sometimes you may end up with a broken heart, but at least you gave it your all. At least you know you tried, with all of your being. Feed your soul. Find your peace. Follow your damn heart. It may lead to the best days of your life, and isn’t that worth the risk? So here’s to following your heart. Here’s to renewing your spirit. Here’s to life ✌🏼 • • • • • • #beautiful #beauty #womenempowerment #beach #beachlife #sun #sunset #sunset_pics #florida #floridagirl #sunset_vision #sunset_hub #ocean #beachwaves #skygram #sunset_madness #sunsetporn #wls #vsg #stunning_shots #happiness #stunning #breathtaking #natureporn #nature #motivationalquotes #followyourheart #fitchick #smile
“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me that’s the true essence of beauty.” • • For most of my life- I was ashamed of myself... not because I thought I was ugly, not because I didn’t feel valuable, and not because I had done something wrong. I would look in the mirror and judge myself....not only did I judge myself- but I felt judged everywhere I went...dinner...dates...movies.. shopping.. parties. Society has taught us that being overweight means we are abnormal, unhealthy, lazy, disgusting, unworthy of the respect that ‘normal’ people get. When I think back on my human interactions with strangers as a nearly 300 pound girl compared to how I am treated as a woman half that size, it breaks my heart. I never realized how poorly I was treated by people until I lost weight and my whole world changed with me. Whether its the lady at the clothing store, the tenant at the gas station, a stranger in the hallway, co workers, friends... people treat you different based on your size. It’s become human nature because society has taught us that it’s okay to devalue another human based on their body shape. Our worth is not dictated by the number on a scale, the size of our clothing, or a BMI chart. An ‘overweight’ person doesn’t deserve any less respect than an ‘average’ weight or an ‘underweight’ person. We are all human. All beautiful. All worthy. • • • • #beauty #beautiful #worthy #selfworth #bodyshaming #wls #vsg #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightwatchers #beyou #happy #value #obesity #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgirl #courage #inspire #motivation #smile #redlips #bikini #womenempowerment #strongwomen #society #respect #weightlossmotivation #weightlossdiary #greeneyes
I was craving a chicken biscuit something fierce this morning.. and after only sleeping about 1.5 hours total last night I sure didn’t feel like cooking... but I also didn’t want let myself eat fast food. So instead- Easy ham and egg stuffed Hawaiian croissants for breakfast 😋 • • • #thefeedfeed #feedfeed #eeeeeeats #hungry #cleaneats #realfood #eatwellbewell #food #foodie #foodshare #foodblogfeed #foodforfoodies #foodpornshare #foodoftheday #foodstagram #foodbloggers #foodoptimising #foodforlife #foodphotographer #foodlovers #foodaddict #carbs #fitfood #fitfoodie #brunch #crossaint #eggs #easymeals
Took a week off of running to let my knees rest and today was my first day back on the run ( get it? 🤦🏻‍♀️🤪) Ran a slow warm up, a quick 7:58 minute mile, and a cool down and feeeling good! I bought some knee compression wraps and my knees feel great! I have learned you have to listen to your body, I pushed myself too far and my knees were paying for it but damn does it feel good to be back at it! • • • #stressrelief #run #running #runningmotivation #runninggirl #runnersofinstagram #runners #exercise #workout #weightlossjourney #weightloss #wls #vsg #nsv #lifestyleblogger #fit #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgirl #fitgirls #fitnessjourney #fitgirl #nevergiveup #strongwomen #strongnotskinny #fattofit #noexcuses #getfit #motivation #preworkout #listentoyourbody

Happy Friday! Hope you are having a good day- it’s finally the weekend! I’m spending the day soaking up some rays because it’s still summer in Florida! Do y’all have any fun plans for the weekend? I have a few things I’d like to accomplish... but for now- time to relax! • • #weightloss #weightlossstory #weightlossjourney #fattofit #weightlossmotivation #weightlossinspiration #fitnessmotivation #vsg #floridalife #florida #extremeweightloss #tat #weightlosstransformation #transformationfitnation #beachday #tattoo #loveyourself #swimwear #bikini #bikinibody #swimsuit #loveyourself #fitspo #summer #bodytransformation #fit #fitgirls #fitspo #beachlife #beach
My heart breaks as I watch the footage from the devastating damage in the panhandle. I remember last year at this time- packing up my car and evacuating by home in fear that I wouldn’t have a place to call home when I returned. We sure got lucky, unfortunately Florida didn’t get so lucky with this hit and my fear from last year is now the reality for many Floridians. Praying for my state, and everyone affected by this horrific storm. I’m so thankful that my town wasn’t affected by this storm but so devastated for the ones who were. #prayforflorida #floridastrong • • • • • • • • #florida #floridaliving #floridalife #strong #nevergiveup #strength #hurricane #naturaldisaster #hurricanemichael #heartbreak #pray #panhandle #fl #floridagirl #floridalifestyle #hurricaneseason #mothernature #mexicobeach #beach
Happy Thursday! That means we are one day closer to the weekend! (Even though my weekend started last night 😜) I spent the day relaxing after a crazy few days at work... then I whipped up some yummy enchiladas and worked on a new recipe for turkey Greek meatballs which will be live on the blog-soon! • • • These enchiladas are made with shredded chicken I made in my @instantpotofficial seasoned with @freshjax taco seasoning and mixed with Refried beans, corn, tomatoes, @oldelpaso enchilada sauce and wrapped in @bfreefoods sweet potato (wheat and gluten free) tortillas! I baked them at 350 for 20 minutes then topped them with green onion, red onion, @caciqueinc queso Fresca, @olemexicanfoods Mexican creme, and avocado. • • #taco #tacos #enchiladas #lowcarb #keto #eat #eats #hungry #food #foodie #foodiesofinstagram #foodporn #foodphotography #foods #foodstyling #foodgasm #foodlover #foodography #foodheaven #foodpic #foodphoto #foodforlife #fitfood #yum #noms #foodblog #katiescardiokitchen #recipe #cooking
