Hello friends! It’s Saturday and we’ve got a full day- check my stories later to follow along 😚 But for now I wanted to share what my mom made for me last night for dinner! ⠀⠀
Chicken Tikka Masala + Cauliflower Rice. ⠀⠀
OMG it was so good. I love Indian food. The different spices, the colors, this sauce!? 🤤 ⠀⠀
Sometimes when we’re stuck in a rut with our food, it’s a great idea to try something outside your norm or something you’d be more inclined only to eat when you’re at a restaurant. If you’ve got some extra time this Saturday, go take a culinary adventure in your kitchen and let me know what you come up with! 🙃

Transform:20 in the books!#DONE
Before this program started I had flashbacks to the stories my friends would tell me about doing the @shaunt Insanity program. A few of them 🤮on the fit test and ever since I was like, eh maybe he’s not for me😂. Buuuutttt since finishing #80 Day Obsession I’ve been able to have more confidence to trust myself and know I can make it to the finish line for anything.
Here’s what happened:
👏The transformers (1 minute full out hiit) in the first few weeks seemed impossible to me and now I find I can push harder during them and not have to stop (#nsv 🙌)
👏 Without a doubt ever single one of those pushups have given me some triceps! 👏I found it doesn’t take hours at the gym to get results or a good sweat.
👏I no longer have moments of freaking out when I’m out of breath from cardio. I’ve been able to control my breathing and thinking and know I’m ok and I can handle it. 👉this is the biggest victory for me becauce it’s been my biggest negative thought and my biggest hurdle.
.
This is not your mamas step aerobics!!! You can seen in my highlight videos these moves are powerful.
I know I’ll be able to come back to this any time I only have 2 minutes and crush some calories and sweat my 🍑 off. The amazing thing is, the OnDemand library has all my past workout loves and I can visit them whenever I feel I need a dose. Everyone has a day when they need some Shaunt motivation and encouragement. 
Still working out what I’ll do next week but I think I’m going back to #liift4 with a little #80dayobsession thrown in until #21dayfixlive redo starts up♥️🙌♥️

I had a little snafu with my camera this morning 😳, but it happened to work out for the best. ⁣
*⁣
While getting ready for my morning routine, my remote was not working. However, when I started to get my @toplus_bodyfit mat prepared my camera started snapping photos. 😂 I had a good laugh when I got home, but turns out the photos came out pretty good. (Of my leggings anyway) ⁣
*⁣
I am loving these leggings from wantable fitness. They fit perfect, do not constrict, are super comfortable. I love the little cute cut out details. They make plain old black leggings just a little bit more stylish. ⁣
*⁣
The best part. Home delivery. ⁣

Trying to work on my clean technique. Hips/bums getting a bit lower, less of a deadlift stance. Hoping to use the leg drive more to power the bar up. Getting there slowly

Sometimes these Facebook memories make me sad because they are adorable pictures of my babies who are getting so much bigger now. But this one makes me happy because of the change that I can see in myself. It wasn’t a fad diet, just slow consistent changes over the past 3 years. You probably aren’t going to lose 10 pounds in a month doing some of the things I do.  But you can lose 10 pounds more slowly and keep it off. For the first time in my life, I have started giving away clothes that are in bigger sizes because I am not worried about gaining anything back. Do I fluctuate 5 lbs from time to time when I let myself go nuts with sugar? Probably...I don’t weigh myself regularly enough to know. 🤷🏻‍♀️ But I can always get back on track. Do I think my body is perfect and I don’t have room to lose some more? No. But I will lose it not by following a “diet”. I will lose it by consistently continuing to do things that I know are healthy for me. For me that means, no gluten or dairy, eating vegetables everyday, drinking tons of water, limiting sugar, and taking my medicine and vitamins that help my body function at its best. If you have had a tough week that makes you feel like losing weight or trying to be healthier is hard or fruitless, just keep going. Eventually you will look at a Facebook memory and be reminded of how much your small daily changes matter. #progressnotperfection #smallchangesaddup

YOU GUYS. I FUCKING DID IT!!! I BROKE THE 200 MARK AND AM FINALLY IN #onderland !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cant even begin to explain how ecstatic I am (PS please ignore my gross feet 🙈) the last few months I have been teeter tottering between 205 and 209 and I recently made some changes to my eating habits and exercise routine and IT IS WORKING !!!!! I havent been under 200 lbs since 2015, maybe even before that. That is FOUR PLUS YEARS of being frustrated with myself and my body and not understanding why I couldnt break my first goal. And here I am today at 199!!!!! Im over the moon and I cant wait to see what else is in store on this journey! •

EDIT: The number on the scale is NOT everything, and DOES NOT define who we are, our strength, our determination, or even progress that we can visually see without the number on the scale going down. NEVER ever think that the scale dictates your health or your progress! 
HAPPY SATURDAY! 🦄💕💫 #sweatisfatcrying #progressnotperfection •

WHY?

People always ask WHY I got serious about health and fitness. Of course I do it because I love and enjoy it. It makes my day every day, and coming from an athletic background it made sense, but, my original why for wanting to be fit and healthy is powered by people saying “you look great FOR HAVING 3 KIDS... FOR BEING A MOM... FOR JUST HAVING A BABY... etc..” As much as I appreciated those comments, they drove me insane because I didn’t want that endnote. I wanted to be seen as fit and healthy period... not with an excuse attached to it. I also do it because I want to inspire my kids to value their health, and I want to take care of myself so I can be well, and here for them as long as I possibly can. ❤️ And OMG... don’t listen to the downers that say KIDS WILL RUIN YOUR BODY. 🙄 Just get motivated, meet yourself where you’re at (even if there are limitations), and get to work!

Why do you do it??

I've not been posting much recently. I have taken pictures occasionally but not posted them for a few reasons, I'm using a crappy old spare phone with an awful camera but mostly because I've not been well for a while. I have had a mentall health relapse which has been hitting me pretty full force. As I always do when I'm I'll, I've also gained a lot of weight, and although I absolutely will not punish or demonize my body for gaining fat or responding to  my emotional health, when it's teamed  up with BPD and depression it can make me feel a little extra uncomfortable for a while, a little extra worthless, not because I'm bigger,  there's nothing at all wrong with that, but because after all my hard work I've let it happen again, a reminder of being out of control.. of feeling not as strong as i'd like. My illness is so outward, it removes all my filters, all my layers, all my complexities, my true values, my gentleness, my subtlety, who I really am as a person and simply pours a bizzare, confused, inconsistent, reactive stream of rawness out in to the world which is all too often undoing all the hard work I have put in to my reputation, my relationships and my happiness. Especially when we still live in a world that generally has no understanding or patience for such things.  I've not been okay and I've hidden a little. And it's okay to not be okay.. I always want people to know it's okay to not be okay, to feel very far from  perfect. so I'm going to post this, I find honesty, acceptance and kindness is the only way out of this. For me honesty is strength. xxx

So here is a picture i took a little while ago and never posted because i just didnt feel i was good enough.

P.S completely obsessed with these zuzuplugs saddle weights I can't get a decent picture due to the crappy phone but they are amazing 💜

Moab, Ut Hike back in Oct 2018... Was having to adjust SI joint several times per day, and very painful to walk at times.  So grateful to see the progressive I’ve made Mind.Body.Spirit!

In the two months since I’ve been tracking my exercise effort with @whoop, I’ve been shocked at how hard it is to get anywhere above the “light” range. That changed yesterday during course prep for #anw11

6 SIMPLE WAYS TO RESET YOUR HORMONES AND FIGHT THE BULGE!

As we get older it feels like we are fighting a losing battle against the bulge.
That stubborn belly fat that just won't budge.
We diet for a few weeks, only to revert to our old ways when we don't see quick results.

Well here are some interesting facts about stubborn belly fat, I've been doing some research recently on how our hormones affect our bodies and how it can have  a huge impact on losing weight and keeping it off.

Its not spending money on a Personal Trainer (ironic that as I am a Personal trainer, Its not spending money on supplements, ironic as well as I sell some pretty amazing products)
No this is six simple steps you can take each day, naturally and without spending lots of money, to help reset your hormones and burn that fat.

I have put my findings in my blog which you can find in my website💻

LINK in my bio I hope you find interesting ❤️❤️ #hormones#fitfam#blogpost#blogger#personaltrainer#progressnotperfection#femalebodybuilder#physique#stayconsistent#ripped#abs#workhard#fitness

My sore throat woke me up twice last night. The second time I just stayed up. These #maukahoney #lemon toddys are getting me through this illness. I HAVE to go to work for a few hours to do some stuff I missed yesterday. Right now I don’t feel like it, but I’m a #survivor if I don’t feel better by lunchtime, I’m headed to the doctor!

Day 46 of @londonmarathon training. DID ME FIRST HALF MARATHON! With these beauts @fayetimby and @ameliasweetlandactor - I could lie and say it was easy, but I’m not about that life. It was hard. It was hilly. I felt sick, and I cried at mile 11. BUT I BLOOMIN’ WELL DID IT! I also cried at the end, because it’s important to remind myself how running has saved me on countless occasions from the rats in my brain, and has made my mental health just so much better. So here I am, acknowledging that if you’re feeling low right now, I hear you, I see you, and am sending you all the love in the world. Off for a shower and to eat all the carbs now 💃🏻

Wondering why you're not making progress despite eating smashed avocado on toast for breakfast and whipping up a nice avocado chocolate mousse for dessert? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Calories. 9 per gram of avo. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That adds up pretty rapidly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Avocados are great - they do have beneficial fats, and are also suprisingly full of fibre - but they're still a fat source.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ease back a little there, tiger!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Lighten up...stop worrying about being perfect. Do the unexpected. Your kids need you full of love, joy, and peace. 
Let your kids watch television with the captions on while you relax...at least they’re reading!

How can you work on being an imperfect parent today?

Week 6 training for my cosplay! #progressnotperfection #health #dragonballsuper #fitdad #saturday
Weigh in day! I lost a few pounds and my body fat percentage decreased!!!! This is wonderful news as I am trying to get out of the morbidly obese category and be in a healthy range for body fat. 
This reduction could not have happen without consistency and discipline. Most importantly not with out the amazing @fitgirlsguide workout programs and supportive community. Thank you #fitgirls for keeping me in check and pushing me each day to be a better me. I feel that #iactuallycan is a motto that has spoken to me this challenge. On cloud nine this am and very appreciative. 
Keep pushing ladies and keep me in check still!!
