I feel like I grew a lil' today. And I just want you to know it's totally okay to still feel like going out to eat is a huge accomplishment. It's also something I need to practice more. It's my beautiful mom's bday🎉shoutout to Betty!! She told me she wanted our fam to go to an Italian restaurant for din. It was so interesting to notice that I still get nervous & have a knee-jerk reaction to avoid going out to eat. And that's okay! What's important here is that we don't judge our fears, we don't diminish our struggles, and we realize what we need to do: PRACTICE. Practice recovery. Practice going out. Practice taking time off from exercise. From tracking your food. Whatever you feel. That's the best part of falling back into your struggle: you realize it, and you weave your way out with a kindness for yourself. You deserve that.
Another tough cardio session after hitting back and chest! . I am a man on a mission at the moment. I am determined to get rid of this damned fat that is just determined to stay put. . The second pic is what I had for dinner tonight. Mixed baby greens with green onions, green olives, cherub tomatoes, walnuts and grill chicken. I used a low fat raspberry balsamic vinaigrette. 🥗 . Hope you guys are sticking to your plan and having a fantastic Monday evening. . Going to have a cheat lunch with clients tomorrow. Going to try and be as good about it as I possibly can. Nothing wrong with a little cheat meal 🥘 every so often, provided it doesn’t become a habit. . #weightlosstransformation#weightlossjourney#weightlossmotivation #weight #obese #obesetobeast #obesity #fat #fattofit #nobodyshame #men #menshealth #healthylifestyle#motivationmonday

Every page gets to make their own rules. Some say 🚫Snapchat filters or 🚫black & white photography or the "quality" of the photograph must be yay high. We're not about that here. If you have a crappy phone, only feel comfortable behind a Snapchat filter, would like to hide your face (all models will be tagged!) or whatever, we will be happy to post you!! * Otherwise, just be sure to comment respectfully - otherwise you will be blocked. We want all participants to feel safe!!
So I’ve been a little MIA lately! 😬🤦🏻♀️ It has been a stressful couple of weeks and I unfortunately let my emotions/frustrations/stress/thinking I wasn’t good enough, get the best of me. . I quickly realized that I was no longer taking care of myself (fitness/nutrition) and that if I didn’t change the way things were going, I was going to end up gaining everything I worked so hard to take off and I was going to get back to the old me. . After realizing this, I quickly told myself enough is enough. You can’t let your “mind” stop you from doing the things that made you feel good. . So today I come back in a positive way and tell my excuses to f@*! off because I’m in charge and I’m not going to give up on myself and on what I’ve worked so hard to accomplish. 👩🏻💜
Looking at Monday like 👀 It was a looooooooong day and I'm just now getting home!! Ordering some junk food on Uber Eats and watching Star Wars is on the agenda to mellow out before court in the morning 🍔🌌 (📸: @caturdaystyle)
