May not be the leanest or the strongest, may not be the fastest or the most ripped, but I sure as hell am gonna keep fighting to get to the best that MY body can be. No weight or size defines that, no certain look or body fat is the “perfect” one. Simply aiming for my best every day
Be your own motivation. Push yourself, reward yourself, see how far you’ve come and be ready for how much is left. It’s no one else’s life or Journey, do this for YOU
Visualize your goals and achieve them. This is a transformation pic I mine from last summer, probably my fave because I got to my ideal body type without having to restrict anything (was following #iifym). I’m not as lean as the pic on the right, but I’m definitely not where I started like on the left. Be happy for how far you’ve gotten, realize your setbacks and mistakes and failures, an get back up and keep going.
There’s no time to wallow in guilt or accept life if you’re unhappy with it. Make a change, see results. Period.
Definitely had one of those mornings where I said “I don’t want to do my 5 am workout.. I just want to skip it…” But then I realized… What good is skipping it do? Yeah sure temporary satisfaction.. Not gonna lie and say I loveeee working out all the time… But after that you feel lazy and guilty and regretful that you missed it. And you miss 1 more day that could’ve been used getting closer to your goals.
So stop putting things off for tomorrow. Whether it be workouts, career things, school things, working on YOURSELF, don’t waste a day not making an effort to change YOU into the best you can be.
Don’t put off things for tomorrow that can be done TODAY! ❤️❤️
Been there, done that, learned from it.
Restricting anything for me has only led to crankiness, guilt, cravings, binging, and getting back if not worse than my original starting point.
Don’t look for quick fixes. Longer time to get to your goal = long term results. Quick fixes = short lived results.

Haven’t worked out in about a week bc I’ve been so EXHAUSTED! With work.. Life.. Ah. It’s ok to have a few days off. I let myself sleep in and I feel soooo much better, less stressed and more relaxed. I needed that time. Don’t be afraid to give yourself some tlc and time to recoop your body!
This morning I was back at it full throttle. Took my @ehplabs #oxyshred like I do before all my workouts and killlllled it!!!! SWEATY 💦💦💦
Have an awesome Monday!!!!
You don’t need to be a certain size to be beautiful. You don’t need to look a certain way in order to be Loved. Being low body weight/fat doesn’t always mean you’re healthy. Being a higher weight doesn’t mean you’re unhealthy. A food high in calories doesn’t make it bad, and a food low in calories doesn’t always mean it’s nutritious. Being far from your goals doesn’t make it unattainable, and being at your goal doesn’t mean you’re better than everyone else. Do what’s best for you. Do what you know is right. Don’t feel inadequate if you’re not at your goals yet. If you’re trying, you’ve already overcome the hardest part: STARTING.
