  • Feeling like I need a little change.  Should I do an ombré color?  Any reason I shouldn’t?

  • 🙋‍♀️ hello! This is me all day long.  Whenever I come up against an “I can’t” moment, I turn to social media to distract myself from that scared-as-shit feeling.

The cure for this?  Push through.  It’s simple, but not easy. But I do find that the more I successfully push through, the easier it gets.  Attention is just another muscle to work on! 💪
  • Struggling to keep weight off has less to do with not having the right strategy or macro balance.  It's a result of our thoughts and feelings about ourselves.  You can't fix the number on the scale until you fix what you believe about yourself. ⠀

  • I got a little ranty in my stories today because I really dislike fitness professionals that prey on our vulnerabilities to sell false promises.  So here’s a few #truthbombs for you:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Strength training won’t make you bulk up unless you are training specifically for that result.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You cannot get #longleanmuscles from “special” workouts.  Your muscle length is driven by the length of your bones.  You can’t change that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Leanness comes from a good balance of exercise (strength + cardio) and good nutrition.  Honestly, it’s mostly about what you eat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There’s no exercise that is bad, wrong or destined to make you hulk-like.  Movement of any kind is good.  But the most dramatic transformations come from consistent, balanced workouts, good nutrition and plenty of sleep and stress management.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If someone is telling you they have a special workout that “won’t bulk you up” but will make you “longer and leaner”, it’s bullshit marketing. ❤️
  • This ☝️ is on repeat in my brain right now as I think about what’s ahead in 2019.  I have SO many things I want to share with you guys, but I don’t like to commit dreams to words until I’ve committed to action first. .
It’s coming tho!! 🤗 #gettingexcited
  • One of my secrets to keeping my food on track is to eat the same thing over and over for breakfast and lunch. That may sound boring, but it just a habit and it works for me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That said, dinners are always an adventure in my house, whether it’s a new dish I’ve created for the blog, or a night out at a fun restaurant. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That kind of balance has always been really effective for me.  I’m able to manage caloric intake because I know what I’m eating for two of my 3 meals.  It gives me structure and freedom which is helpful and sustainable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you have any tricks like that?  If so, I’d love to hear them!  Pls share. 💕
  • Go ahead and let that one settle in.  I bet you needed to hear it today.  Slow and steady wins the race, but quitting gets you nowhere.
  • I’m just over here not slogging my way though a workout. (Don’t mind my grinch-like feet 😖.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Find a workout that you actually don’t mind doing (or dare I say, enjoy?) and motivation won’t be a problem anymore. 💃
