Be the energy you want to attract ✌🏼🖤 In the middle of a flexible program that includes lifting 4 days and running two days with 1 rest day. Loving how it makes me feel but today I had to modify my workout and wasn’t really feeling it. Instead of letting it ruin my day I choose to see it as a growing day 💪🏻 When you can’t control what’s happening try challenging yourself to control the way you respond to it. That’s where your power is. ✨

42 weeks ago I joined @slimmingworld, after a number of years of yo-yoing with my weight I finally decided to get my ass into gear and get fit and healthy for me!
.
.
I have never been a slim build and was always classed as being “healthy” in the indian culture this means chubby 🙄 It always used to bother me but I still didn’t do anything about it because I was happy the way I was!
.
.
In 2014 I lost my dad, I gave up caring and started to eat my feelings. I piled on the weight getting bigger and bigger, I started to get bigger size clothing and then the penny dropped when I picked up a size 18. I cried in the dressing room and didn’t even recognise myself anymore! None of my clothes fit and I stopped going out and started to get depressed but told no one..
.
.
On Tuesday 24th October 2017 I stepped through the doors @slimmingworld and after following so many insta accounts I was in a mind set that if they can do this I can do this! And you know what......42 weeks and I’m -41.5 pounds down, who would have thought I could do this!
.
.
I still haven’t finished my journey and still have a way to go but I’m no where near where I used to be!!
.
.
💖believe in your self and you can do anything💖

W.E.I.G.H D.A.Y.....👌🏽
.

Half a pound on this week 🙄. My first gain in my first 4weeks and I can live with that. My meals for the week were to food optimise and a couple of days I may have gone only slightly over my syns so I could narrow it down where the half a pound has come from. But i am not knocked by this small gain. My journey.... slow and steady wins the race ☺️P.M.A.
.
.

However I’ve planned an off day Saturday as tomorrow is my sons first birthday 🙊😍💙 and it’s all about celebrating esp at his party on Saturday. But will ensure the rest of the time i am 100% on plan. .

Have a great day people✌🏼

#itsaprocess #patienceiskey #igotthis #slowandsteadywinstherace

We live in the day and age of instant gratification so we tend to be impatient at times. The good news is that every small step counts towards the progress we seek.

I try to focus on the small wins and my end goal instead of how long it is taking me to get to the finish line. That helps me to keep my head in the game.

We have to appreciate today and the journey or we are missing out on allot!

BTW the if you are working on yourself or a relationship remember that which you seek to improve didn't happen overnight so don't expect the solution or end result to appear like magic either.

Walked by the mirror and was like "hello progress!" I'm going to Vegas next weekend, so I have to kill it at the gym (and the kitchen) before I go, because let's face it, I am going to have a slushie in tow ALL weekend! But good news is, I will be walking 10 miles a day! Does that balance out?

2.3kg that's a bag of FAB washing powder and 16cm gone.... Feeling back on track and on my way to success. Celebrations usually mean swing past and treat myself with my favourite food (Maccas) but today I kept driving and went home for my proper lunch. I wont lie it was hard not to drive through and get something yummy but I BEAT my head today and told myself YOU ARE BETTER THAN THAT!!! Bring on next Thursday.

Have you ever bought a shirt (without trying it on) only to get home and realize it’s too small? Have you ever not returned that shirt because you were too embarrassed? Well that’s what happened with this one but now it fits! #workingharder #determination #motivation #weightlossjourney #slowandsteadywinstherace #goals💪 this journey is about so much more than just weight loss it is about finding the confidence to come out of the shadows and be the HAPPY person I know is in there somewhere!

First time on this 10k course. I’m not gonna lie, that hill at mile two made me nervous. Had only planned on doing three miles but got into such a nice groove that I finished the full 10k. #halfmarathontraining #runforfun #instarun #runnersmotivation #summerrunning #justrun #slowandsteadywinstherace #runnerslife #sunsetrun #workoutcomplete #runlikeagirl #trainingrun #iloverunning #runnersofinstagram #justfinish

2016 ➡️ 2018
-
Same box, same rope, same goals, same dedication, same motivation, same patience, same consistency, different year. -

No matter what your goals are remember they won’t happen from one day to another. You have to stay dedicated and patient no matter how long it takes. In just two years I’ve improved tremendously in Crossfit but I’m still not even close to where i want to be. I still have many goals to achieve and i know i just have to keep working towards them slowly.

Today's affirmation:
"I trust my inner wisdom. As I go about my daily affairs, I listen to my own guidance. My intuition is always on my side view trust it to be there at all times. I am safe."- Louise Hay
-
I love this! I doubt myself regularly. But, if I am slowing down and being mindful I can clearly hear my "voice" and I am more focused and confident. -
This was snagged from my box of Louise Hay affirmations, and the tree is from my walk today 🙌
Definitely need a shift in mindset if I am going to get back to where I was last year 💪

🛑 5 Fit Tips to STOP Following 🛑

1. 1200 calories is likely NOT enough. Even for you to lose weight, you probably need to be eating more than you think. You have to be a small person to function well at 1200 calories. Put in the time and do it the right way, with plenty of doos 🍎🥦🥩🥔🍣🍠🌮 2. With that, stop living in a constant deficit (eating less than you’re burning). Eventually your deficit will stop being your deficit, and you can only go so low. As hard as it is to hear and do, sometimes you have to gain a little bit of weight before you cut.

3. Diet pills, shakes, wraps, etc. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it a million more times.. you might lose an initial bit of weight, but it WILL NOT last long term if it’s done the wrong/quick fix way. (And most of it is usually water weight 🤷🏻‍♀️). Stop wasting your time and money, and just put it toward the process that works for you and is sustainable!

4. Endless cardio.. stop it. Yes, cardio has benefits and can help put you in a deficit. Will just doing hours and hours of cardio get you to your goals? Probably not. Also, if you had running, don’t. You’ve gotta do what’s sustainable.

5. Stop avoiding the weight room and heavy weights. Weight lifting will not make you fat/bulky, only a caloric surplus will do that. Lifting weights will actually help you reach your goals faster!

There are a lot of fads, fixes, and fakes out there. Here’s the truth: figure out what you enjoy, and what works for you, for fitness and nutrition. If it’s not something you can do long term, you’re not going to stick to it. Of course you can change things along the way, but always make sure it works for you!

During my university years, reading became a *task*. A challenge to absorb as much as possible as quickly as possible.
⠀
Since graduation, I’ve slowly been carving out more time for reading again. Without a test in mind. Simply learning.

Slow & steady wins the race 🐢

Spinal fusion!

This is what it can look like post OP.

This image is from a lovely 33 year old gent who’s worked SO hard for many years to help improve his low back & leg pain.
He had his L5/S1 fused 7 weeks ago & is recovering well 😀

He has also kindly said he is very happy to chat to any of you out there if you’d like more info on his OP and recovery.

Yesterday marked 2 weeks post op! I had an entire journal entry posted that kept getting deleted, so I gave up. 😕 I was able to walk 2.5 miles yesterday as well before the day took a turn for the worse. I’m doing a bit better today. Here’s a video I just did to share my thoughts from yesterday. Limited my screen time today.

🔹Multiplied by consistency and time, this is what lasting success looks like, an increase of 1.25 pounds. It’s easy to get caught up in the big numbers and the “10 abs in 5 days” talk, but time and time again we realize that it’s all a bunch of crap. Focus, and more importantly BELIEVE, in small wins consistently over time. Is it easy? Not always. Is it worth it? I dunno, but all the cool kids are doing it, and they’re getting great results. Drown out the noise, focus on yourself, and WIN a little EVERY DAY.

Their fort building skills are increasing everyday!! 👌🏽We’re majoring in the majors people, and minoring in the minors (like spelling, science and grammar — bleh). Not to worry, after 2 weeks on the same words my oldest got 💯 on his spelling test today. ☺️ #slowandsteadywinstherace 💪🏽

SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE 🐢 🏁 -
Went from training legs twice a week to not doing it at all. No but like on a serious note this is my first time training legs in over 10 WEEKS due to a pain I keep having in my left knee when I do any exercise that involves legs.
-
A minor set back for a major comeback. Starting off with light weight then as my knee get better (hopefully it does) progressively add weight. -
Just got to keep pushing and not give up over something so small.
-
We’re back and we’re ready😈

Today is my first rest day this week from working out. It is also my off day off from work.

I went on a walk this morning with @cleaneating_marlene and August.

The train is still on the track from Monday I’m taking small steps forward trying to keep it slow and steady. #stillmovingforward #smallsteps #slowandsteadywinstherace #slowandsteady #tiptoe #tiptoeifyoumust #itscoolerinpooler #poolerga #poolergeorgia #fitcorrectionsofficer #fitcorrectionalofficer #georgiadoc

Progress.... somedays it feels like I make big steps forward and other days, not so much. I’m okay with that. I know changes don’t happen over night. •

I exercise and “sometimes” eat healthy, it depends on the day and what’s going on... town celebrations, weddings, county fairs, and just good ole summer fun. •

#perserverance, #gymtime, #somedaysyouworkthruthepain, So I got back late Monday from #professionalphotographersofoklahoma convention and #metroprofessionalphotographers mtg, and hung out with my family and sweet puppies( Bitsy, Dexter and Harley) yesterday. My back is jacked up along with left shoulder and left side of neck and hurting pretty good since Monday from sleepingvwrong, and whatever I did this weekend to mess it up. Yet, still today I went to the gym with Claudia, and used the massage chairs, and worked out lightly. I was still there. I made it happen, by God's grace. #Godisincharge, #Iwillgetthere, #slowandsteadywinstherace, #tortoiseandthehare, #backpainsucks, #strengthtraining,

Hey you! 😄 Looking for ways to increase flexibility? 🙋🏼‍♀️ I shared a few of my favorite tips to get stretchy throughout the day with @lnkfeelsfly - check out their blog post via the link in my bio! 📲 .

I would not say I'm a "flexible" person... HOWEVER, I would say that I am a more flexible person than I was 3 years ago! 🧘🏼‍♀️ Since I started stretching more (workout cool-downs) and yoga-ing more, I have seen a slow, but steady, increase in my flexibility. Just a few minutes a day, every day, helps so much! #slowandsteadywinstherace 🐢 .

What about you? 🤷🏼‍♀️ How do you work on your flexibility? Share your favorite ways to get a good stretch in below! ⬇️ .

Flower update:
Pic 1: Terpinator fed plant is starting to catch up and produce bigger buds and more trichomes, but still in second place.

Pic 2: Terpenez fed plant is still lagging in trichome production. Hopefully it’s a “Tortoise and the Hare” type of story. #slowandsteadywinstherace ?

Pic 3: Whole Milk fed plant is doing the best in both bud size and trichome production.

It’s week 5 and you may have noticed I’ve missed a couple of workouts. Life happens.
I have two choices: pick up where I left off OR quit because it’s just too hard. So many people choose #2. Never give up on what’s important to you! Life will always throw curve balls at you. Now go get em!
