Day 50 of 365. Ahh Monday’s. Today has been pretty good despite being hungry all darn day! I missed CrossFit because I had to stay a little bit later than usual at work BUT I got a gooooood workout in at Planet Fitness. 40 minutes on the elliptical, 10 minutes on the stair master at a level 2 with 3 20 second breaks, 20 burpees, 6 lunges and mobility. I WILL NEVER WEAR A LONG SLEEVE SHIRT TO THE GYM EVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE OK?!!!?!??? My lunges felt pretty good tonight despite just finishing the stair master. Tbh- I didn’t even care if people could hear me breathing heavily across the gym. I’m not at the gym for anyone other than myself. I know a lot of people feel intimidated, and I get that because I felt the same when I first started. But you guys have to remember that you’re there for you and you only. Not sally doing squats on the treadmill or Donald pushing 250 on the leg press. You’re there for you 🤷🏻♀️ do what you gotta do and get it done!!!! #myweightlossjourney#obesetobeast#fattofit#fitspo#cardioishardio

It’s what’s for #dinner. Ribeye, Langostino (frozen from Trader Joe’s) and Green Giant mushroom cauliflower risotto. 👉👉👉swipe for pics and Langostino recipe👉👉👉
JOUR 169 / déjeuner
Riz japonais, haché de jambon, œuf, chou chinois, haricots verts, carottes, chou-fleur, daikon mariné, gingembre, graines de sésame/pavot.
Joli bento ce midi, avec moitié moins de riz que d'habitude (mon aîné m'en a piqué pour son chirashi 😂). On verra si ça me cale aussi longtemps 🤔
Au pire, il y aura goûter 😁
Bon aprem 👊
Tomorrow will be my weigh-In and I am excited/nervous. It's funny I've been doing this for almost 2 years, but every time I go in for a weigh-ins it still feels like it did at the start of my journey. I'm going in around 9am so I'll post my new weight at noon.
JOUR 169 / dîner
Soupe de légumes maison, tortilla de blé, Philadelphia nature, saumon cru, avocat, tomates cerises, concombre, graines de sésame/pavot, poire.
Et 1 carré de chocolat noir 85% avec quelques amandes et des baies de goji pour accompagner mon thé du soir.
J'espère que votre lundi s'est bien passé. Je vous souhaite une belle soirée 👊

I haven’t made one of these in forever, but it’s probably my favorite way to show my progress. Since I started losing weight in September 2016, I’ve lost 130 inches all over my body. It’s insane to look back and see the numbers. I’ve lost 21 inches in my stomach alone! That’s almost 2 ft. in circumference! 😱 Take those measurements, guys! You’ll be surprised at just how crazy the changes are. #transformationtuesday
P.S. That’s totally not the same tank. The one on the left was an XL and the right is a S!
I made the photo using PicMonkey.com 👍🏻
I couldn't find an old photo of me without a shirt off but found one when I was at my worse. Granted I was not consistent in my workouts and intermittent fasting. Started back 2nd week of January being consistent in my workouts not missing and also dedicated to intermittent fasting. Also, I been eating better and try to stay at a caloric deficit but not too strict.
I can enjoy my burgers and fries, sweets and other indulgences making sure I can fit them in my macros. I probably can be better in my diets, but I'm not in no contest or doing anything major. I'm just trying to get back to a healthy lifestyle and make sure I can fit into my suits lol.
Anyway, I hope this motivates anyone out there that wants to get back to the healthy lifestyle. I know how it goes when life takes over and you forget about yourself. Just take it one step at a time and make a change. Be you and do you, challenge that person in the mirror and strive to be your best. 🤙
I forgot to take one at the gym, so here's a quick #sweatyselfie from home. Not a great photo, not a great angle, just accountability. I'm over the race to have the best ig page. No more taking 20 selfies just to find one to apply 4 different filters to.
Just me. ✌🏼

I made hand pies last night! Or hand pockets, empanadas, calzones - whatever you would like to call them 😊😊 I used the WW #twoingredientdough and filled 4 with eggs and bacon, 4 with chopped up chicken marinated in BBQ sauce, and 4 with chopped up chicken marinated in Franks red hot. Yum, yum. ///
Eggs and bacon are 5pts
BBQ chicken ones are 5pts
Buffalo chicken are 3pts!
Perfect for lunches or easy dinners. I will have one of the bacon and egg for breakfast, and my boyfriend and I will have the chicken ones for lunch for the rest of the work week.
Fail to plan, prepare to fail!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!

Transparent 🔎 #Transformationtuesday post. I remember going crazy with cardio, unhealthy crash dieting and barely eating cabbage soup in efforts to loose weight for my bachelorette weekend. I remember being ecstatic to see 170 on the scale. All that and still needed spans! 🤦🏾 I hadn't even touched a barbell then and thought, like most people, crazy cardio and low calories equal weight loss. I eventually gained all the weight back and then some. 😒
Now that awakening beauty on the right, 😍 she was eating 6 clean meals a day, drinking 3/4 gallon of water, and lifting the roof off ALL the gyms and was 30 lbs lighter then the chick on the left! And I haven't worn spanx in over a year! 🙌🏾 (I barely wanna wear clothes so you know I hate extra clothes😋). I had to learn the hard way! Find YOUR path to healthy weight loss. Eat clean, drink water, lift heavy and eliminate stressors! You can do it #fitfam! Remember who is counting on you, and take control of your health for them. 😘 #keeppushing#beforeandafterweightloss
R.I.P. to my Tatas! But I'm natural and proud! 😘😘 #nosurgery#noneedles#nopills
GEROOSTERDE KIKKERERWTEN 🤗 Gisteren avond even snel als snack gemaakt. Nog nooit eerder gemaakt, maar wat is dit gemakkelijk! Heerlijke snack ook trouwens. Dus mocht je nog iets te doen hebben.... AANRADER!! Super lekker en simpel.

We’re halfway through so make sure you keep tagging me and @Tampax in your sweaty selfies to be entered to win a year’s supply of my go-to workout ready tampons Tampax Pearl Active and a 30 day @24HourFitness pass! #TampaxAmbassador#ad
Last nights dinner was absolutely delicious!😋 I made Chicken Teriyaki meatball Stirfry. It was so hard not to go for seconds but I didn't!!! This will be a new common dish in our house. Heres the recipe if anyone is interested. Have a wonderful day everyone.
Chicken Teriyaki Meatball Stirfry
1 pound of lean ground chicken
1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp minced ginger
1 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp teriyaki sauce
1 tsp brown sugar
Salt & Pepper
4 cups spiral zucchini
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1 onion, diced
1 Head of broccoli, cut into small pieces
2 whole carrots, peeled and slivered
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup snap peas
1 red pepper, diced
1 Tbsp Sriacha (Hot Chinese Chili Sauce)
1 Tbsp Hoisin Sauce (purchased in your grocery store)
2 Tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 tsp corn starch
Preheat the oven to 350. Combine all ingredients for the meatballs in a large bowl. Form into 20 small meatballs and bake in the oven 30 minutes or until the center is no longer pink and the outside is golden. Mix all the ingredients for the sauce. In a wok or large frying pan add the oil, garlic, carrot, and onion. Cook for 4 minutes. Add remaining veggies and the sauce and cook for additional 5 minutes or until all veggies are soft. Add the meatballs and toss.
This is my biggest struggle. Once I am out of bed, I am ready to run but getting there is SOOOO hard for me. But I have also found that I am 100x more productive in the morning. Does anybody else struggle with early morning wake-ups? What works for you? #morningbird#nightowl
Unwrapped Chicken Fajitas are the perfect paleo/keto/gluten free choice for an easy-to-make dinner. High in protein (32g), low in carbs (12g), and amazing in taste!🤤Valentines day is coming up, time to lose those extra lbs for your SO!💘👍
Weekends are usually everyone's "cheat day" but that's a narrow way of thinking. Eating what's healthy and eating what tastes good do NOT have to be mutually exclusive. If the meals you're eating are nutritionally dense, helps you burn fat, AND tastes good - then wouldn't every day bring you the same happiness as 1 cheat day?🤔
Tip: if the thought of making this yourself gives you doubt in your cooking abilities, you can go down to your local Chipotle and create something similar (just go easy on the cheese/sour cream). It won't taste the same and it'll be higher in sodium, but it's a start! Until you're comfortable making it on your own. .
DM me for any questions or suggestions you might have! Stay healthy!💪🙏
