Oh leg day. You bring out the best in me and the best in my swear word collection. πŸ˜‚

I have never ever ever ever ever seen that heart rate working legs. Ever. 
I used to go to the gym with my phone and look up different exercises or those "see abs in 3.2 days with these two workouts" type deal. Or I would find a machine I usually had to Google how to use to maybe do 10 half hearted reps and hope no one was watching. I definitely NEVER saw that kind of heart rate during a leg workout in those days!!! The fact all I have to do is push one little button and do what someone else says for 45 minutes is life changing. I don't have to leave my house, I don't have to pack a bag and hope and pray I could Force myself to go. 
I literally come home, mix my pre workout (refreshing lemonade anyone? Hello summer!) And get dressed. That's it. Once the clothes are on and the pre workout is made, I am committed. It's that hard, and that easy at the same time.

Day 47!!!! Whaaaaat??! I didn't think I would make it to day 7 let alone day 47. 
But that's the thing. We can be our own biggest cheerleader and join the fight to reach our goals. Or we can be our own biggest critic and tear ourselves to nothing.

Whatever you think your body believes. Be mindful if it's helpful and good or toxic. 
Check out that shoulder though. πŸ˜‰

Day. 45. 
This week is the last week in phase two. I pushed myself harder in these exercises but it was hard to keep my heart rate up when I always have to stop to rotate the plates for different exercises. 
I got frustrated. My brain got in the middle of it and broke my confidence a little. I swore a bunch and hit pause a lot. 
But I didn't quit. So many of us want the quick fix and the miracle, but so few are willing to put in the work and actually make the change that could save your life. 
Ditch the excuses, ditch all the reasons you've become comfortable with accepting mediocre. 
You are worth it. It's gonna be hard. You're gonna have days where you wish you could do anything else, but you push through and do it anyways. It pays off in more ways than you could imagine!! #80dayobsession #day45 #phasetwo #bootyday #fit #fitness #weightloss #resistancebands #hurtssogood #losingweight #youareworthit #letsdothis #moveyourbody #motivation #ibelieveinyou #redhead

#day44 and I feel like I could cry seeing this. Putting it next to each other takes it to a whole new level. 
I've been struggling to get my nutrition under control because I'm human and not perfect. Nothing more, nothing less. 
I'm taking the next 6 weeks to dial in the nutrition as well as see how far I can push myself. This picture is only further motivation. Heavier weights, double loops, lower squats. All of the lunges. 
My journey isn't done at day 80. This will be something I will work at daily for the rest of my life.

Seeing my confidence change (notice the difference in the two?... That girl on the right forgot what self love is. She forgot how good she could feel. She forgot who she was most days.) Has really brought everything back into perspective.

It feels good to spend less time hating my body and spending more time putting in the effort to make it function in the best way possible. You are the only one who can change it, and make the decision to change your life. 
The quote that has stuck with me this last week is "There are two types of pain. The kind that hurts, and the kind that changes you." Be realistic on the type of pain you're feeling, then figure out how to fix it if it hurts. 
PS....can we just bring up the fact I have never had any sort of butt in my life???? Check out the difference!!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ #nomoreflatbooty

Does anyone else randomly get the urge to rock a hair style they haven't done since high school? Turns out braiding my own hair seemed a lot easier back then. Still not bad for 11 years with no practice!! Channeling my inner @jerichomcmatthews for my workout tonight!! ❀️❀️

Day 41. Take that total body core! Or....take it....me? Oofda. Upped my weights from last week and my heart rate made me do a double take a couple times. Looked more like a cardio session. πŸ˜‚πŸ’ͺ Learning to isolate muscles in my core like never before. Let's just say if I am walking like a little hunched over old lady tomorrow....here's your heads up.

Also started studying up on the new program being offered. Licensed dietician. No counting calories. No containers. Working out is extra credit. This already looks like the bomb dot com. Seriously. I'm gonna complete this program with the timed nutrition to give honest results, but I would love to share this with everyone!

Some days you drive me crazy. Some days I threaten you you're going to the sale barn. Some days you're a royal pain in my ass. Some days I swear you're going to drive me to drink. 
And all days you always manage to make me take it all back. ❀️❀️ #roxy #loveyou #painintheass #horse #drivemecrazy #cantlivewithouther #bestfriend #mares
8lbs. Halfway. 40 days. πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ Is it weird I'm more proud of this weight loss than when I dropped 30 lbs? I see more changes in my body now than I ever have doing things the wrong way. Starving myself, counting calories, magic shakes and pills. All of it is garbage compared to this. ❀️ I don't think so. I've fought tooth and nail for every bit of it. Fought through knee pain, rolled ankle on DAY 3!!, stress, working two jobs, home life, social life to get to this point. And I'm not done. This isn't a destination. Its a continuous journey that will continue until I'm gone.

I'm living proof giving up on yourself does nothing. Fighting for what you want is everything. You don't have any valid excuses as to why you are not at your goals right now. 
No excuses, no regrets.

This is literally the hardest and the most rewarding thing I've ever pushed myself through... I have always been a chronic quitter my whole life. I start things and let something get in my way, and think I'm happy with mediocre results. 
I've always been comfortable with my weight going up and down. I let it get to a point where my pants don't fit and everything gets uncomfortable before I decide to kick my butt in gear and half starve myself to lose that 30lbs i gained. Sound familiar?

This time feels different. This time I'm focused. Working out isn't an option, it's just a part of life. I still have my struggles, you will see me stumble. I have days where I still want to crawl on the couch and sleep and skip my workout. But I have my secret weapon! #5secondrule (thanks @melrobbinslive

The difference is this time you won't see me quit.

Happy Monday everyone!

Started out my day with a killer migraine. The weather has been all over the place and my diet sucked last week,so it was a matter of time before something happened. 
Gave myself time to come out of the haze and feel like I could open my eyes without dying, and now I'm off to try and make up everything I missed this morning. I am not liking having my day off kilter anymore. Amazing how it didn't used to bother me. 
Let's get this week done and kill those goals!!! #mondaymotivation #happymonday #monday #beashark #goaldigger #killinit #makeithappen #yougotthis #ibelieveinyou #letsdothis #somuchmotivation

Holy canoli!!! All the sweat, yo. 
Ok, so I might as well come out with it before it eats me alive. I've been straight forward with everyone about my progress, and I am definitely not ready to fall back into my old habits. 
This program has taught me so much about nutrition and I've found so many things I love. But I found myself tripping back into the old routine of not prepping food and grabbing whatever is convenient, which, if we're all honest, is garbage. 
Last night I was having really bad knee pains to the point I could hardly walk by the time I got home. I ended up just going to bed it was so bad. Missing my workout. 
I woke up hating myself for missing it, but after thinking about it, what would have happened if I had worked out instead of resting when my knee definitely needed it? Probably end up hurting it worse. 
I rested, took it easy, swapped my rest day for #day38 And I'll start all over again with the nutrition and the schedule tomorrow. 
I've put in the same amount of workouts, and I'm not throwing everything away. We all tend to jump ourselves when we mess up, instead of taking it as a pothole in the road and moving on. If you let every bump in the road derail you, you'll never get anywhere.

I have a confession. I hated that workout.............
.
.
.
.
.
.at first. I was struggling. I swore. A lot. I was subconsciously sabotaging my form trying to protect my knees and my ankle. I was almost convinced that I couldn't do it. 
Then out of nowhere Autumn says "stay in it. You can't quit now you're only cheating yourself." And I was a tiny bit creeped out at the timing, but it worked. 
I finished strong and for the first time I can say I loved a cardio workout. The core part of it didn't hurt either. Might have been the workout pump but I am starting to get some definition in all the right places!

Sometimes we give in to the temptation to give up. That accomplishes nothing. Push through and be proud of yourself!

I've kinda been slacking on my self care, and I am just hearing Autumn in my ear saying I told you so. 
If you don't know me super well, I have flat feet, which basically the way I naturally walk puts pressure on my knees in a different way. Not to mention when I strain my muscles doing exercise and sports. 
Through school and sports I had to get the shoes with the most arch support to help out. Not to mention playing volleyball you're taught to lean forward and be on your toes. Well I've been pretty inactive since high school, so naturally my joints are acting up. I've had tendonitis in multiple on my body and I've had a few knee injuries in my life. I'm not surprised. 
I may look like a walking ad for ACE, but I'll do whatever I have to to not have to stop my journey. I've come too far. Here goes nothing!

Day 33. Legitimately thought I was gonna throw up during this workout. 
I was a hot mess this whole time. Between #trollhair and Autumn's breakfast trying to say hello, and Richardson sweating everywhere, I would say it looked a lot like a Monday!! I'm really building a love hate with phase two. I know that's just because I'm a weenie that likes to be lazy.

What workout did everyone knock out today? Let's hear it!
