Soooo I honestly just love this transformation and how I have a smile on my face in both of these photos! 😂💕
As I look back at the picture on the left, I remember taking that picture feeling genuinely HAPPY since I was on vacation living my life in Mexico!
Shoot, and the picture on the right I just took this past week at the gym? I felt like a happy cookie tooooo obviously! 🍪 I’m just a pretty darn happy person in general!
What’s the difference between the two besides my physical transformation though? I felt happy in both of these photos, but I’ll admit...I was living life waaaay too comfortably on the left.
What do I mean by COMFORT? I was simply living life on a day to day basis without establishing goals for myself to conquer! I also didn’t have a clue on how to create sustainable eating habits for myself either, which led to my weight gain and I kept letting myself go without doing anything about it.
A little over a year ago, it finally clicked in my mind realizing that you don’t GROW when you’re comfortable. So I finally decided to be that woman who just goes for it. 💃🏽
Now here I am, 13 weeks out to my FIRST show, freaking loving the lifestyle I live now. It’s an amazing feeling to FEEL strong and healthy. Not only that, I LOVE establishing short term and long term goals now to become a better version of myself! That’s what it’s all about at the end of the day. Stay HUMBLE and be HUNGRY. Gotta keep workin’! 😤🌟

NOV 2019-CURRENT🤩 didn’t realize the changes I’ve made until I was looking back at some old pics!!
In the left picture I was “buliking” (aka an excuse for me to eat soooo much Qdoba, tbh) and on the right is the best I’ve ever felt😊
The left is probably the heaviest I was this past year and the right is the leanest, I fluctuated a lot through out the year though. 👀
What I’ve been doing this time around, compared to when I’ve gotten this lean in the past:
-focusing on eating lots and LOTS of fruits and veggies, drinking a lot of water
-lifting heavy still 😤
-getting adequate sleep
-not worrying about the scale or obsessing over numbers
-doing some TOUGH but amazing cardio workouts at F45
-being intentionally very active during my days (NEAT for the win)
-keeping my mental health game strong
✨Although I’m enjoying how I look, I’m not really worried about my body composition right now. I’m more worried about feeling healthy, fueling my body, and doing workouts that make me feel powerful.
Everyone’s bodies are different and genetics play a big role, but if you find yourself unhappy counting macros or feel overwhelmed with all the info out there- I highly recommend just focusing on overall health!! Get active, sweat often, fuel your body with plants, and focus on your mind too!🤍✨
