Weighed in this morning at 136.5.

That is the lowest weight I’ve ever recorded on here! 
Lower than my high school weight, too!!

I feel great. Eating whole foods gives me so much more energy and it’s so much easier for me to pop out of bed and stay productive through out the day. 
Need to be hitting the gym and/or pavement more, though. Need to be building muscle!

Off to eat a delicious breakfast and then to soak up some sun on the beach!

My mom commented that this is the best I’ve ever looked in this bikini that we bought together 3 years ago. I definitely feel great in it! :)

A few years ago, I could hardly zip this dress up.
Smaller boobs and 15 lbs lost and I put it on without unzipping it!!
This dress, among other beautiful things, is up for sale in my Thread Flip store!

Rolled out of bed, but on my bikini and now I’m laying in the sun for a few minutes (need my vitamin D!) I can’t help but feel (and now…see…) that I’ve gained some weight. I absolutely refuse to weigh myself because I know it will do more harm than good. The most frustrating part? I don’t want to do anything about it. I’ve loved not counting calories. I’ve loved not feeling obligated to work out unless I really want to. I’ve loved not worrying about eating chips or some pizza. I just have to fall back into wanting to better my body—not for looks, but for feel. Can’t wait to move home simply because it will be like a clean slate. I can rebuild my routine and surround myself with positive people and energy. Now to soak up some rays :)

On feelin’ the “F word”:

Ya know….fat. (shudders)

You guys the craziest thing happened, though. I can’t really bring myself to actually use the word fat when describing myself. or anyone else I guess. It’s just such a nasty word.

I see that as such huge progress mentally. And I’m pretty happy about it :)

Time to start treating my body right because I’m honestly not feelin’ my best. But I’ll use these emotions to fuel myself positively.

looking through Facebook photos….try it out! it’s nice to remind yourself how much you can change and not even realize it until you take a closer look.

a fun little twist on what I’m wearing to work today!
I bought this dress 3+ years ago and I still love it. But I love how I look in in now even more! :D

Good morning!
Going to spend the day relaxing and then once it cools down I’ll do some HIIT outside! It’s only 11:30 and already 85 degrees—yikes!
Can’t wait to go home Sunday.
Then next week is NYC to see all of my amazing friends. SO EXCITED!

NO MERCY January

As I was meditating yesterday evening, preparing for the new year, I realized something…

I’m the same weight as I was 2 months ago.

So it’s time to pick up the pace and finally lose these last 15 lbs in a healthy way that will allow me to keep it off!

so it’s time to show January no mercy. Here is my plan:

1400 CALORIES A DAY!

  • breakfast: carbs. examples: oatmeal, eggs on an english muffin, Kashi cereal with almond milk, or my protein pancakes. always with a side of fruit.
  • exercise: I have the most energy in the morning so I plan on doing my cardio as soon as possible. This will consist of HIIT either outside or at a gym (need to find one in Chattanooga still!!)
  • lunch: veggies & protein. examples: salad packed with veggies and chicken on top, a turkey burger (no bun) with a side of veggies or a salad, homemade soup with veggies and meat, TRY NEW RECIPES! :)
  • exercise: a few days a week, I plan on doing my strength training in the afternoon if possible. If I don’t have time, I will have to do it in the morning or even after work at night, but I plan on improving my strength and building muscle through resistance training and free weights!
  • snack: mainly protein smoothies with low carb/low sugar powder. 
  • dinner: similar to lunch but I will be cooking for me and my roommate (cousin who is a boy!) so it will vary every day, but we plan on cooking every night and I’ll always have fresh produce around so my meal will consist of mainly veggies and lean protein.

I am going to be traveling A LOT this month. back home from California, driving to NYC, driving home from NYC, then driving to Tennessee to officially move into my apartment and be there permanently. So much is happening this month and I could easily use the excuse that I’m too busy or there is too much going on, but the truth is that there will always be excuses and I am ready to really push myself to be where I want to be.

any questions? feel free to message me!
