The struggle is real!! I am trying so hard to change my eating habbits again . Its not that I don't like this food or that it doesn't taste good. For whatever reason I would like to eat a Big Mac, fries,& sweet tea. My body craves junk food. I have to retrain. So this is my lunch. Here is to retraining my brain!!! #willpower#fitmegamom
I was feeling so down yesterday. I felt like everything was still tight on me and nothing has gotten gotten big or was starting to fit better. I am tired of looking pregnant and I was just so frustrated that I wasn’t seeing results. Then I put this shirt on this morning and would you look at this??? This is so exciting and why it’s sooooo important that you take tons of pictures!! The photo on the left was taken a month ago and the photo on the right was taken today! Progress baby!! 🙌🏻
Kobe Bryant’s words for Gordon Hayward’s awful injury. Couldn’t haven’t said it better. A injury is a mental challenge tremendously more than it is physical. No doubt, there is definitely a beauty in the struggle. 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙏🏽🤛🏽🖤💯
Craving some gooey chocolate banana muffins? Always! It’s a healthy treat for that midday slump. I made sure to portion control these babies out by making them into muffins. My ability to eat a whole pie pan worth is just too strong #willpower

🌊Manchmal hat man eine Idee. Man fängt an zu überlegen. Ist es eine blöde Idee? Was kann schief gehen? Kann ich selbst...alleine... das überhaupt schaffen? Was könnten andere denken? Würden sie mich noch mögen? Wem würde es nicht gefallen, was ich tue? Was ist, wenn ich es nicht schaffe?... ABER was wäre, wenn ich es schaffe?! Wenn meine Idee nicht nur eine Idee bleibt? Wenn ich es einfach mache? Wenn das, woran ich glaube und wofür mein Herz schlägt, nicht nur in meinem Kopf bleibt? Wenn ich einfach mal nicht so viel darüber nachdenke, sondern es ganz verrückt verdammt nochmal in die Tat umsetze?
Traut euch!💪🏻Egal in welchem Bereich. Wenn ihr aus ganzem Herzen etwas versuchen wollt, dann tut es. Wenn ihr etwas verändern wollt, an euch, für euch , für andere, mit anderen dann macht es! Soviel Zeit vergeht durch das Reden über Träume und viel zu wenig Zeit wird mit dem Leben von Träumen verbracht.
Wir leben nur einmal. Und auch wenn wir uns ommer sagen: "Ach ich habe noch soo viel Zeit...nächstes Jahr/nächstes Mal reicht auch noch." Ist es wirklich so? Reicht es dir echt? Wir haben nur dieses eine, unser ganz eigenes verrücktes, buntes, manchmal langweiliges, glückliches, trauriges, unberechenbares, wundervolles Leben.
Habt einen schönen Abend ❤🌅

On the negative side ( the less you are evolved, the more this will affect you) there are a few planets in Scorpio♏️ which can escalate insecurities, jealousy and NO CONTROL where the emotions are!❤️
I’m gonna harp on this point until you get what I’m saying! I am on one with this y’all!!! Beating the 💩 out of that dead 💀 🐎 ta-day!!!! DO. YOU. HEAR 👂🏼. ME?! 🤦🏻♀️ ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

So granted anyone under the age of 30 probably won't get the reference to the old school anthem by Meatloaf, I just couldn't help but think about it given what I see so often from people who want to lose weight. I can't tell you the number of times people say things to me like "I'll do anything to lose the weight" or "I'm desperate, please help me" but as soon as I talk about tracking macros suddenly they can't hear me and dissapear. -
Now I'm not going to sit here and tell you the ONLY way to lose weight is through tracking. And honestly I think the long-term goal for most people should probably be to get to a point where you DON'T have to track, but here's the thing. Tracking teaches you SO much about nutrition and your body. Even just spending a few weeks closely monitoring macros can teach you more than damn near any textbook could. -
Everyone wants to be able to "eat intuitively" but how can you be "intuitive" if you have no clue what's in the food you eat? If you don't LEARN then you're constantly looking at foods as either "good" or "bad." When I have people eat like they've been eating but just TRACK it they are almost always shocked. Some people they can't believe how much they eat, some can't believe how LITTLE they eat. Most people hardly eat any protein. Many think they love carbs but come to find out they go crazy on fat. And these things are surprising because they don't know what's in the food they eat and they don't know cause they don't track.
So the point is this. If you want to get better at ANYTHING in life you have to LEARN about it and get better. If you're only told "eat this not that" than that's what you learn. So you spend the rest of your life relying on willpower to get you through. You think there's magic foods. But if you took the time to track macros and learn for yourself, well not only will you now be better educated, but since you lose through being in a caloric deficit. Now you'll KNOW if you're in a caloric deficit or not rather than guessing. So if you want to end the guessing game and get better, I can't recommend tracking enough. Maybe it's not your long-term solution, but it's a big stepping stone in the right direction
I used to say I have no willpower. How do people stay away from junk or booze or sitting on their butt?🙏🏻🙏🏻 👉I have realized that it has nothing to do with willpower. 🙏🏻it has everything to do with the desire to change and the desire to reach your goals. ☘️I have way less issues staying away from junk food now. I have realized that change is necessary in order to reach my goals. I want it bad enough!
Do you have the desire to change? Do you want it bad enough? ❤️ If you do, join me on this journey! Let’s change together! Let’s chat and I can get you started!👍🙏🏻. #change
I may never have six pack abs, I will always have stretch marks and extra skin, and I’ll never weigh 130 some odd pounds, but you know what?
Those things don’t define me. They don’t determine my health or my happiness...And they shouldn’t determine yours.
I’m healthy. I’m happy. I move my body daily. I eat a balanced diet. I take care of myself mentally and physically. And I’m a damn good mom.
Those are the important things that we should ALL focus on. Don’t let numbers and physical appearance define your journey. 🙅🏼 there is SO much more to it.
Do your best to be your best.
Taking a note @perleofwisdom page today; the daily practice of gratitude. 🙏🏽✨🔥👑❤️ What #magic in your life are you grateful for today?
I'll go first.
I am thankful for my solar plexus; my greatest obstacle and biggest source of energy/ power. This chakra births my physical back strength and mental tenacity. It's a challenge to keep the core strong and in shape while flexible and fluid. This chakra blends primal & earthly needs with spiritual and emotional yearnings. When balanced- it excludes a true joie de vivre and gentle fierncess. (A healthy appetite.) I find this to be a conundrum; when unbalanced can lead to extreme vanity & ego trip or compete lack of worth or will power. (Emotional eating or lack of appetite.) And this why it presents a huge opportunity for personal growth.
My Momma has always told me when I'm down, "You have no idea how strong you are. You have literally willed people and events into existence." I was waking up grumpy because I'm catching a cold before my trip but now I'm honing on a healthy body that exudes the joy for life and will to fight.☀️🔥💛
