Getting that meal prep done for the week!
For a fresh take on #salmon try this Seared Salmon with lentil salad by womansday.com

2 tsp. olive oil
1 skinless salmon filllet

Haiiiiiiiiiiii My Loves THREE OF MY FAVES ⤵️⤵️
*as promised* upper body training videos coming atcha starting off wit some shoulder-boulders🔥🔥
1️⃣ Bent Over Rear Delt Flys 🛫
TIP: focus more on lifting your arm as far away from you as possible to really engage the muscle. Try for 4 sets of 15 reps.
2️⃣ Rear Delt Rows 🚣🏽♀️ TIP: these you’ll keep your palm FACING YOUR BODY and keep your elbow perpendicular to your body - this turns the row from a back exercise to a shoulder exercise. Go for 3 sets of 12 reps
3️⃣ Seated Shoulder Press 🤜🏽 TIP: being seated means you can safely lift heavier. GO HEAVY. You only need 3 sets of 10 here to feel a burn

"I GOT YOUR BACK DOG!🐶" WE ALL WANT SOMEONE WHO......... I've come to learn that in "LIFE" we all want to become supported and appropriated. We all want to have someone that we can count on to lift up our spirit and someone who would never attempt to tear it down.....
We want someone to have our back!
But there are times we need to learn to have our own back first. Even if you don't see it all clearly right away. It is in learning to have your own back and be your own best friend where you can let go of a vision of what you thought something was, and start making a vision of what you deserve.
This should not be a source of Fear!
But yet a Freedom!
When you prove to yourself that you can get things on your own you experience a sense of liberation, you are no longer waiting for people to do this or that for You!
A frustrating and infuriating experience!
You have confidence that you can manage any adverse situation on your own.
You must define yourself. And if your light is shining to much for anyone that wants to dim it... Then you must walk away and have the courage to have your own back.
I was trying to discover my path but the path wasn't in front of me.... it was in me.
I discovered my backbone!

Bump-date time! 16 weeks 👉🏼 22 weeks (and 4 days). .
🤸🏼♀️I have actually been killing my workouts lately and am feeling SO “normal”! .
🍎My nutrition could definitely be better, but I’m ravenous like 90% of the time so what can ya do 🤷🏼♀️ I’d say I’m at about 80% “healthy” and 20% “unhealthy”. I gave up sweets for lent (CEREAL DOESN’T COUNT 😂) so that’s helping lol
🤰🏼I’ve gained 10-12 pounds so far...I think. I’m not good at remembering to weigh myself to to log my weight because I’ve never done it before. .
🤺Babygirl is moving around like crazy now! My favorite thing to do when I settle down for the evening is to watch my belly and see her move. She’s approximately 10-12 inches long now!
🎶 She either loves or hates when Chris talks/whistles/sings because she almost always kicks and moves when he does! She’s either dancing with excitement or saying “SHUT UP SLEEPING” 😂
👖I officially cannot button any of my work pants anymore and have to wear a belly band 😂 I refuse to buy maternity pants/clothes until absolutely necessary so i will ride out the belly band for as long as possible!
But, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows over here. Pregnancy can really play some mind games y’all. I am frustrated that I don’t “look” pregnant, but just thick around the belly area. I am getting more cellulite on the dreaded thighs. I’ve noticed some veins on my thighs, and my face continues to breakout on the regular. My clothes don’t fit like they use to, and once again it frustrates me that I don’t look pregnant, just thick and bloated 😞 I tried to rock the cute bodycon “show off my bump” look and literally just looked like I ate a chipotle burrito 🤔
I am sharing this to be real with y’all. Not fishing for compliments or for any type of sympathy. I know that my job growing my baby girl is WAY more important than anything superficial. But that does not stop me from feeling insecure at times. I’m only human.
I am beyond proud of my body! And not a second goes by that I don’t think about my baby girl 💗
If you’re still reading, thank you, I love you and I might have a name to share with you soon 😁
Since starting this new 80 Day program on January 15th I have lost 12lbs! My favorite dress pants no longer fit...i spent the whole day pulling them up 🤦🏻♀️...I’m sad but super happy with my progress and it’s definitely motivation to keep going!
I’m down here in Coronado at Boney’s Bayside Market doing what I love, introducing Biltong, meeting new great people and having great chats about important topics: kids, health and nutrition amongst other things!
Love my Navy peeps! 🇺🇸
Cardio can be boring, but it doesn’t have to be. Try something new. Grab some battle ropes, a jump rope. Ropes are fun, especially when you play with friends. 😉
I don’t always have time for a full workout so I try and find a move that engages all the major muscle groups and gets my heart rate up. Sqaut to ab rollout with alternating knee tucks. 10x5 with a minute rest. Try it.
