I wasn’t sure if I was going to post this photo, I wanted to do a different pose and show off my outfit but then I saw my gut. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m proud of myself for how far I’ve come in my fitness journey but that doesn’t mean that I don’t get self conscious sometimes especially with people striving to be perfect on social media but hello I’M HUMAN! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But in a sense I’m glad that I noticed it because this is my life. I’ve always had a gut or how I like to refer to it, my forever fanny pack. Even when I was at my lowest (109 lbs) I was still sporting a little fanny pack. I was insecure for a split second but guess what...this is me.
I’m all about comfort but if you look in my closet all of my hoodies are basic colors and from college. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Definitely trying to up my wardrobe and add more color. So grateful that @laurasboutique put me in their PR list. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @laurasboutique Kristy velvet hoodie in lavender. So soft and comfy! Use code stephchanted for some $$ off.
If you really want it, you’ll do whatever it takes to achieve it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Looking at my before picture, I know exactly how I felt about myself and that’s a place I never want to go back to. I’m dedicated to my journey not only to feel better about myself but also to show that it doesn’t matter what your starting point looks like. You can reach your goals. The journey won’t be easy but it will be worth it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you really given yourself a chance to reach your goal? Are you putting in the work? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m taking on 5 new clients who don’t want to just dream about the body and confidence they want. Comment down below “I want this” and I’ll send you details.
My new favorite accessory, my @apple watch. It does so much but my favorite part is that it keeps me on track with my fitness journey and daily goals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you guys have any favorite Apple Watch apps to recommend?
GOALS! I’ve set up some personal and business goals for myself, but it’s not about just saying out loud or writing down what my goals are. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s not about closing my eyes and wishing, hoping, or wanting them to come true. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s about doing the WORK and STOP making EXCUSES for why I’m not where I want to be. It’s YOUR dreams, the only person that can make them a reality is YOU!
Looks whose walking!?!?! Yes, I can’t believe it but my little man is walking on his own and has been exploring and giving me heart attacks but that’s motherhood! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I can’t believe how time is flying by, I feel like he’s growing up so fast, yes I’m getting emotional 😭
Sometimes it’s good to just feel like a kid again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I beat level 1 before this turn but of course I didn’t get it on film 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ But I do love this game, brings me back to my childhood when we sometimes used a cord as a jump rope 🤣
It’s been pretty cold here in NY but I’ve been staying cozy in my @laurasboutique Lena jacket in pink. Use code stephchanted for $$ off ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This jacket is definitely a light weight jacket but because I’ll wear either a long sleeve or hoodie under it, it does the job in keeping me warm. And one thing I love about it is how soft it is.
This is my beautiful grandmother. She loved life and lived it to the fullest. She was active; she would workout regularly with my grandfather in the park, went on walks, swam in the park’s pool, loved being on the farm, went on excursions. But the one thing she loved the most was her family. She lived for her kids, grandkids, and great grandchildren. This is how I will remember her forever with a great big beautiful smile on her face. Rest In Peace Abuela Ana Elcie Castro De Alzate ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ella es mi bella abuela. Ella amaba la vida y vivió cada segundo. Ella era muy activa; hacía ejercicios con mi abuelo en el parque, le gustaba caminar, nadaba en la piscina del parque, le encantaba estar en la finca, e iba a paseos. Pero una cosa que amaba como a nada en el mundo era su familia. Ella vivía por sus hijos, nietos, y bisnietos. Esto es como la voy a recordar siempre con una sonrisa bella en su rostro. Descanse en Paz Abuela Ana Elcie Castro De Alzate ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #rip#restinpeace#mybeautifulgrandmother#shegotherwings#yatienesusalas#angel#angeldelaguardia#guardianangel#fuckcancer
I almost got him to flex 💪🏼 🤣 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I usually do my workout in the mornings but wasn’t the case today. But that doesn’t mean that I skip a day. Even if I have to go to bed later than normal, I still make it a priority to get my workout in even with my kids. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My body isn’t going to change on its own, I have to put in the work to get to where I want to be.
