When I stopped eating meat, I had to find new ways to get my protein in. That meant I needed to try new things...chickpea pasta was one of them..and it was delish. Although “pasta” is a carb, chickpea pasta counts as a protein for me in my vegan meal plan. So a little pasta salad went down, and it was bomb! (Chickpea pasta, cucumbers, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and nutritional yeast) Have you tried chickpea pasta before??? And if you are someone who doesn’t eat meat, what are some ways you like to get your protein in???

It’s not about a size or the number on the scale. It’s not about appearance or inches lost. It’s about proving to yourself that you are CAPABLE. It’s not letting that negative inner voice win. The one that tells you you can’t, that you won’t succeed. —— It’s about finding yourself THROUGH the struggle. Learning that you can love yourself through EVERY stage. Exercising because you love yourself enough to be healthy. NOT to punish yourself for eating. —— I promise you, if you stop focusing so much on the numbers and focus simply on living a healthier life, the weight WILL come off. —— You don’t need to starve yourself. You don’t need to punish yourself for eating. You do NOT need to weigh yourself every single day. You are ALLOWED to ENJOY life! —— Focus on fueling your body with good, healthy foods. Move your body as much as you can. Focus on loving yourself and living a balanced and happy life. Life is so much more counting calories and living on the scale. —— Girl, I’m cheering you on!✌🏻 ______________________________________ . . . . . . . . . #youreworthit #screwthescale #liveyourbestlife #momming #momminainteasy #momlifebelike #progressoverperfection #doitforyourself #positivenergy #positivemindset

So I am going to be really transparent right now. I have been struggling with my body image for awhile. I do my best to eat healthy and exercise but lately I’ve been falling short. Often, I can’t even enjoy myself without feeling guilty afterwards. The only thing that comes to mind is “you just had pizza, tomorrow you aren’t going to eat anything, just to make up for it.” Usually I don’t go through with my threats because the other part of me is like “you’re an idiot don’t be that way.” But it’s so hard because I can’t eat certain things without having that inner battle. Today, I weighed myself for the first time since December and had a full blown panic attack. I broke down and just sat in the bathroom and cried. After my break down I prayed. I asked God to give me strength and thanked him for keeping me healthy this past year. i can’t give up on myself. I can’t give in to these negative thoughts. My self worth is more then that number. It always will be. I have to remind myself that it’s not about the number it’s about me. My health and happiness. I have a long way to go, but if there is anyone else out there struggling your not the only one. We are all in this together. 💕 #screwthescale #sel#selflove #youarebeautiful #youareenough #motivation #wegotthis #recovery #rebuild #patience #fitness #fitfam #lupus #health #loveyourself #selflove #strongereverday #bodypositivity #daybyday #workout

I had a lovely afternoon meeting & engaging in heartfelt dialogue with some new souls at a little yoga/meditation function. & then we got some wholesome, delicious food at @happyandhale to fulfill the heart, mind, and body trifecta❤️🙏🏼. • One of the questions that sparked our conversation was, “What comes to your mind when you think of your soul?” Everyone’s answers really reshaped my perspective, so I’d love to hear some of your thoughts below!😌 • • • #veggies#yogie#meditation

Grilled balsamic chicken, broccoli 🥦 rabe and Spanish rice for din din 💗 there are going to be days when you feel like giving up ... but don’t. There are going to be days when you feel you just don’t have what it takes... but you do. There are going to be days when everything seems to be falling apart... but they won’t. Things will always workout for the good and there will be days where you look back and be glad that you didn’t give up . These weeks have been one of those weeks where I just wanted to give up , but I’m PROUD I continued to move forward . I made the most of each day. I changed my attitude . I fought the voices. I fought the challenges. I fought the bad days. And because of that I’m stronger. Being with my family and friends today made me realize that i have to overcome these hurdles in life because giving up is NOT the answer!!!!

Feeling a weeeee bit bloated after the past few days, but that workout was LIT. 🔥✌ Three scoops of my liquid gold and I lifted heavier than I have the ENTIRE program. My arms are getting so much stronger and I love it. Moves that I couldn't do in September now feel EASY. Best part? You never would have caught me rocking white leggings until now, cause this ass don't quit. 😎😂👏 . . This community is what keeps me going HANDS DOWN. Now I want to pay the favor back to YOU!

Let’s talk about DRINKING this Saturday night. Calories, sugars, carbs, I banned all alcohol from my diet in fear of weight gain. Sound familiar? Many people who start dieting or are looking to reach fitness goals crack down on their alcohol consumption. While I respect people who do not drink for religious or moral reasons, I want you to think of your WHY if this sounds familiar to you. Alcohol is not inherently evil. You will not wake up having gained 10 pounds. You will not lose all your fitness progress. You do not have to drink to the point of hangover. You can drink in moderation and enjoy your life and reach your fitness goals. If you want to enjoy a glass of wine tonight or are celebrating a special occasion and want to drink a little, go for it! 🍷♥️

Something my mom always taught me was to push past the feelings. We may not want to do it, we may have excuses and fears... she taught me to do hard things. Whether it was the fear of doing a backflip on the beam, playing my instrument in front of others, or even completing my hard college degree... I never gave up. I pushed aside the feelings of doubt because they get in the way of success. Emotions are a gauge, not a guide. They are meant to report to you, not dictate you. I really was feeling like skipping out on this- but I didn’t. Almost halfway through this program and I am NOT about to quit now! #80dayobsession #fitnessmotivation #homeschoolmom #momswholift #momsofinstagram #momboss #fitspo #saturday #cardioworkout

Not feeling it today, guys. Nooooot feeling it. I increased again today, and my stomach is in misery. And I still have another meal and another snack left to eat. 😩 All kinds of doubts arising. But, one foot in front of the other.

Real talk • I have not been motivated to work out lately 🤷🏼‍♀️ since I was down with the flu for 10 days I think I’ve formally worked out once, so that’s like...a month off • people ask me how I stay motivated all the time and the truth is, I don’t! Sometimes I need a few days or weeks off. I always come back to what makes me FEEL my absolute best when I’m ready, and usually by then the motivation is STRONG! Adopting a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean that it is either all the time, or it’s nothing. I’m not advocating stopping altogether but just a friendly reminder that it’s ok to take a break! xoxo 🖤 • • • • • • • • #bbg #bbgtransformation #bbgcommunity #bbgstronger #bbg#bbggirl> #bbggirl #bbgfam #fitspo #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #fitnessgirl #fit#fitgirl> #fitgirl #workoutmotivation #motivation #fatloss #mac#macros #transformation #screwthescale #gains #leanmuscle #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #fitlife #fitlifestyle #bbgprogresspic #macros #wellness

📢 DOES 'BULKING' MAKE YOU FEEL SAD??📢 . . One thing that I've been talking to so so so many #ufb#ufbg girls about recently is alllll the struggles related to '#bulking' (growing muscles 🍑 💪 by lifting heavy things 🏋 and eating lots and lots of food 🍕 🍏 🍫 🍝). It's something I've been working on over the last few months and I feel like it's something thats not really talked about enough. . You're killing it in the gym and making sure that your workouts and recovery are being fueled, but then outside the gym you find that you can't get your favorite jeans to fit over your bum, your blouses feel reallllllly tight around your shoulders and you feel like you're just looking all round very anti - fitness. Then just to make you feel even bigger, everyone around you seems to be on an insanely low cal diet, doing hours and hours of cardio and appears to be shrinking rapidly every time you see them! . . I can promise you that your perceived 'bulkiness' is massivly exaggerated by your mind, and its very unlikely that anyone you don't see on the regular would have even noticed! . . Personally, for me weight training was never really about aesthetics and for the most part I've really enjoyed getting stronger and building some curves - that doesn't mean seeing my body change has been easy though! One #protip that really helped me deal with it all was to buy clothes that would move and stretch and grow with me, so on the off chance that I wouldn't be in my gym gear I'd still feel comfy. I've been sporting all these outfits 👆 since 2016. They fit me at 45kg. They still fit me now at 60kg. I felt good in them then and still do now. . . I think it's so important to love your body whatever stage you're at! It's just a body, it Isn't in a fixed state and it never will be! Your goal does not need to be about making yourself as small as possible!! (and for so so many health reasons it shouldn't be!) Remember that your journey is your own. There are a billion different ways to look and feel beautiful. As long as you're smiling you're winning ♥ . . Hope this helped x #ufbg #selflove #screwthescale #girlswholift #ukfitfam #strongnotskinny #weightgainiscool #bodypositivety

Made it back to my office and headed out to get healthy groceries BEFORE I went home and my excuses set in. Cart full of healthy foods (plus cookies for justin 💁), for 52 bucks. HOLLA. In and out in 15 minutes, and my whole mood is turned around. On the menu is fajitas, cauliflower chicken alfredo, chili, and stir fry.

I absolutely love that feeling when I get done with a workout and my shirt is soaked, I’m dripping in sweat 💦 and a little shaky from exertion. That’s when I think 🤔 I did it again, I really did it. And I know I can do it again tomorrow ☀️ Now to go hike a mountain ⛰ Happy Saturday!

Reminder: You Are Important. . It may not seem like it on here but everyday I battle thoughts of self-doubt and worthlessness. I know how it feels to look in the mirror and hate what i see, or put on a t-shirt and hate how my back fat shows. I don’t have a solid career nor do I know what I even want to do. I battle this EVERY DAMN DAY. We are set up to think that there’s always something better and that we are never good enough. . This can be a huge motivator to bettering our lives, but it often leads to unhealthy expectations. . You were put on this earth with a purpose and because of that you are important, no matter where you are in this journey we call LIFE. 💜 . . . . #bee#beeyourself #growthroughwhatyougothrough #screwthescale #introvertproblems #introvertsunite #beabadass #ibsdiet #depressionisreal #youareenough #tallgirlsprobs #quadsquad #longlegsdontcare #beeyou #lovethelifeyoulead #yql#yqlfitness #yql #calgaryfitness #musichealsthesoul #stopbodyshaming #chocolateislife #selflovefirst #greysanatomyfan #tsosfabfeb

| 2.5 YEARS OF WORK AND 7KG DIFFERENCE | These poses are pretty different because tbh you don’t take photos of your booty when you don’t have one at all, let alone posey photos 😂😂 . 1️⃣ This was actually one of my very first progress photos and I remember being pretty happy with my body and how much weight I’d lost - even though now it’s a very different shape to my current goals 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ 2️⃣ I remember being not that happy with my body in the moment because I hadn’t been to the gym for so long - but later looked back and realised that I hadn’t lost all of my progress after a couple months away from the gym 🙌🏽😇 . Putting these pictures together helped me understand that years of working out aren’t going to just disappear overnight, so honestly don’t stress when you take some time off 🤸🏻‍♂️🧘🏻‍♀️ . 這兩張圖之間有兩年半了,慢慢的健身,舉重才能夠增肌而練出臀肌。這個比較讓我了解好幾年的健身不可能在一兩個月當中而消失,最近我一直感覺很煩惱因為已經三個月沒有練,可是其實努力慢慢累積的booty還是存在😇🙌🏽

One day does NOT ruin all progress. 👏 . . I'm not even going to sugar coat it, I was beyond off my game yesterday. Between the stress of being stuck, hanging out with my coworkers, and not having my own food......I ate too many carbs, almost enough veggies (MIRACLE), and absolutely no fruit. YIKES. I woke up and thought my entire stomach would be a bloated hot mess, and while it is somewhat bloated......it's not that bad. I can still see some abs, I feel decently okay, and all it did was give me an even bigger fire under my butt to get home and get back to MY routine. Now if the Mackinac Bridge would open......that would be great. 😂🙆 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #coffeeaddict #craftbeergirl #tacosarelife #sororitylife #whiskeygirl #sweatisfatcrying #workingonmyfitness #noexcusesjustresults #tiugirl #michiganmade #ilovewhereilive #puremittigan #mittenlove #midwestlife #gettinginshape #summerbodyinprogress #absmadeinthekitchen #gettinglean #cleaneatingaddict #cleaneatingchallenge #youarewhatyoueat #beyondthescale #screwthescale #girlswhohunt #musclesandmascara #outdooraddict #teamfueledbeyondfitness #teammorethanyouseek

• • My Story: Part 6 • December 2016. My pregnancy with my son was planned ☺️ My husband and I had conversations about what I would do better this time around, and I felt ready to have a healthy pregnancy. • The first half of my pregnancy was fairly normal. I began slowly gaining a reasonable, steady amount of weight. I ate very well and responded to cravings. • Again about halfway through my pregnancy, I was referred to a high risk specialist. At 29 weeks they began keeping an eye on his growth. • My weight gain stalled, some weeks dipping a bit. • By 32 weeks, he was measuring below the 10th percentile and was considered an intrauterine growth restriction baby. • I sobbed in the parking lot after that appointment. I was legitimately doing everything so much better this time around, with all the same problems regardless. • August 2017. I was again induced early - just before 37 weeks - due to his lack of growth and a sudden decrease in amniotic fluid. My baby boy was only 4 lbs 8 oz. the smallest baby I have ever held. He is now 6 months old and a chunky 18 lbs. ❤️ • I ended my second pregnancy at, ironically, the EXACT same weight as my first. I still look back and wonder where I went wrong the second time. At this point, I don’t trust myself to reliably grow babies. When and if there is a third pregnancy, I will most likely see a dietician. •

♥️BODY P O S I T I V I T Y ✨ . A key part of healthy living, fitness & nutrition is feeling confident in your skin, however it looks right now! ☺️ The rise of body positive movements & influencers promoting self-love (& the really epically heartening attack on the media’s indoctrination of everyone with diet culture!) is great, & some accounts I’d recommend if you need help in this area are @iammelwells @rhitrition @tallyrye @thegirlgains @victorianiamh @jodyshield @hannahrosecluley ✨ . I’m also rereading this little gem by one of my faves @lil@lilyjcollins - aside from her recent (incredible!) look at anorexia in the insightful indie film she stars in (still on @netflixuk ) To The Bone, she reveals in this book not only her #edrecovery story but her struggles with appearance for other reasons, abusive relationships, and it all feeds in to this idea of self worth. . At the risk of sounding hippy or woowoo, I think selflove is something us Brits especially find hard to talk about. We dismiss it as navel gazing, egocentric, hippy or LA style stuff that’s not for us. It’s ok to be embarrassed or uncomfortable about the concept - culturally we’re quite buttoned up! - but I think this lack of self confidence, respect, esteem, love whatever you want to call it, keeps feeding diet culture, keeps feeding anxiety around our appearance & how we should behave. So let’s stop slagging it off for a second & actually consider how we talk to & about ourselves. Your relationship with your body & yourself is the only one you are guaranteed to be in for life. . So screw the rules. Screw diets. Screw slagging ourselves off. Screw abusive partners/family members/ randoms who’ve ever made you feel not good enough. Screw wasting energy on wanting to look different. . @lilyjcollins book is literally a Dear Diary intimate style read that will help you reflect on this and face up to how you treat yourself & your body 💖 . . . . #nutrition #balance #kaylasarmy #bbg #lilycollins #girlgains #strongnotskinny #screwthescale#selflove#BBGgirls #wellness#kaylaitsines #motivation #bodyconfidence #bbgstronger #girlswholift #bod#bodypositive #loveyourbody #fitness #lifestyle #bodypositive

It is amazing what your body is capable of if you push your mind to go there! This move is killer 🔥 plank hold with tricep kick backs and that’s right after weighted chest press and chest flys. (If you don’t know what all that means it’s ok! Aka it’s hard🤣) But last week I barely did one on my toes but today I could do 10 on my toes 🙌🏻 Another reason to screw the scale and measure your progress by your strength!! 💪🏻 . . . . #screwthescale #nsv #progress #dogmom #sphynxmom #rescuedogs #greyhoundmom #fnp #nurse #nursepractitioner #womenrunners #strongwomen #furmom #workingwife

I had a rough day. --- As I was driving, I found myself asking what it is that I needed. This is not something that was always natural for me. For a long time it was more like, "what can I binge on to finish out this awful day." --- But with practice has come a better approach. --- I needed to breathe. I needed gangsta rap. I needed to not have to make supper. I needed to be taken care of. I was lucky enough to do all of these things and even got a bonus of my Ellie asking to cuddle with me. And now I can peacefully lay my head down for the day. Tomorrow is a new day. ❤️

ONE YEAR. One year since I have stepped on a scale and seen a stupid number. I don't plan to anytime soon either. If you swipe left, @ashlensandefur says it better than I could, and took the words right out of my mouth, gosh I admire her. I no longer let a number on a tag or a scale tell me my worth, ruin or make my day....I just look in the mirror/take some progress photos here and there, and go by how my clothes fit. I am still terrible at eating veggies, I never turn down a dessert, and the gym is literally my fave part of my day. It's a hobby. Not a chore. Not a thing I dread. It's the most freeing choice of activity- mind, body, and soul. I can hear @jillchristinefit voice in my head on the days I dread the *intensity* of my workout- "you just gotta get outside of your head, and go/do it." That attitude has gotten me there every single time. Because it's consistency. It's the little choices that add up to the big changes over time. And can I tell you something? Please, please, for the love of all things, do NOT give a damn about what anyone else thinks of you in this space. You're always going to have someone that rolls their eyes at you, who thinks you're too big, too small, too muscular, too outgoing, too into the gym, too flaky, too whatever. It makes me sick how much I have let "what others think" of me, keep me from what I was created to be, enjoy, or THRIVE. BUT ALSO KNOW, when you see someone on Insta, it's the photo they thought they looked the best in at that moment. Good lighting + vascular pump from a workout + preworkout = what I just posted. (Yes, and a lot of hard work too). 🍻 to ONE year of freedom.

Triple AAA Day: arms, abs, & well I’m sure you could guess the third one! 🤷🏼‍♀️ haha. but really, today’s workout was a challenge but the treat waiting for me at the end got me through! (Swipe over ➡️) I love exercise because of the way I feel after! Even if I didn’t want to workout that day, I feel a TON better after I get that ish done! ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ Ready to join me?

Trying to explain to my coworkers that I'm a morning bird and definitely NOT a night owl has me like....🙃😂💁🙆. I have no shame in my early bed time game, my body loves waking up early which means going to bed early. Some TV and off to sleep for this girl, I'm out of here as soon as the bridge opens in the morning! 🦄🙌 . . . . . . . . . . . . #coffeeaddict #craftbeergirl #tacosarelife #sororitylife #whiskeygirl #sweatisfatcrying #workingonmyfitness #noexcusesjustresults #tiugirl #michiganmade #ilovewhereilive #puremittigan #mittenlove #midwestlife #gettinginshape #summerbodyinprogress #absmadeinthekitchen #gettinglean #cleaneatingaddict #cleaneatingchallenge #youarewhatyoueat #beyondthescale #screwthescale #girlswhohunt #musclesandmascara #outdooraddict #teamfueledbeyondfitness #teammorethanyouseek

“& one day she discovered that she was fierce, & strong, & full of fire, & that not even she could hold herself back because her passion burned brighter than her fears.” ✨ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ This really speaks to me. I was the girl growing up that was quiet & shy & cared WAY too much about what others thought about me. & that just really kind of sucked, it’s too consuming to worry about others. Lemme’ tell you! But one day I woke up & realized that it doesn’t matter what others think about me, what’s really important is what I think & feel! This was when I found coaching & found this passion within me to help others! Yes it scared the crap outta me. But you know, the best way to grow as a person is to realize those fears are real & jump in with both feet anyways! That’s what I did 💗 & here I am just living my best life! 🤷🏼‍♀️ (ps. you can join me! I have just a few spots opened up to join my team) ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ So let me ask you. . . Are you living your BEST life? If not, why not? & when are you going to start?

To the girl who told me today that, in her opinion, I didn’t have the body to be a personal trainer...you’ll probably think I don’t have the body to wear something like this and yet here I am 🙃🖕🏽 #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bodyconfidence #confidence #loveyourbody #loveyourself #everybody #healthy #fitnessmotivation #strongwomen #strongwoman #curvyfit #effyourbeautystandards #screwthescale #youarebeautiful
