Sorry for the lack of new pictures, I’ve been slacking 😅 After I hit my lift and get my cardio in, the only thing I’m thinking of is getting home to eat NO SHAME 🤣 For the past month and a half/2 months, Coach has had me in a “mini cut” and my body has been reacting great to it! One more week with lower macros and 5 days of 30 minute LISS cardio until we go into a growing phase! I GOT THIS FAM, I’M HYPE👏🏽 Plus, what better motivation to be strong through this next week than the thought of me leaving for the Arnold 1 week from today! 🤩

Struggle with knowing how to start eating for your goals? This is for you! 👇

There's an overwhelm of suggestions about diet, right? “No carbs after dark!” “Fruit instead of dessert!” “Low fat low carb!” - but what is right for YOU?
_
1✖️Keep it simple // 👉If your daily intake consists of a couple fast food meals without attention to vitamins, minerals, or fiber whatsoever, I feel it is unnecessary to stress if you should be eating ½ or a full avocado. Before worrying about details (i.e. what if the salmon is marinated? Does my banana have to be organic?) Ask yourself, "Is this a healthier option than I typically would consume for this meal?”
_
2✖️Consider hierarchy //
👉Are you consuming a multivitamin? If not, that may be an excellent starting point. I’m big on encouraging clients to set + achieve mini goals, and nailing the mini goal of taking a multivitamin consistently every day for a week is a fantastic way to start getting a handle on the nutrition aspect of your wellness! 🙌
💥@1stphorm carries a multi for both men (M-Factor Hero) + women called (M-Factor Goddess) containing a full amino acid profile + superfood antioxidant complex… freaking impressive)
_
3✖️ Be patient //
👉A full understanding of how food can work FOR you doesn’t ingrain itself in your brain overnight - although that would be pretty cool! 😂 Write down + reflect on what your past eating habits have been, & be patient with accomplishing mini goals in the direction of your higher wellness (feel free to DM me for help!) Ex. 1) Multivitamin
2) Are you consuming enough water?
3) Have you taken fiber into account? A fruits and vegetables are part of your day?
_
✖️There is so much info, GOOD AND BAD, to sort through. It CAN be overwhelming - but it doesn’t have to be! Start with simplifying and comparing changes you’re making (mini goals) with how you’ve been eating in the past, and go from there.

Not everyday will be perfect. There will be days you wake up not feeling your best or not feeling completely motivated. You can choose to use these days as a means to get stronger, or you can dwell on all that “feels” off or wrong. . .

In honor of the Arnold coming up here shortly thought I’d do a #tbt to 2015 when I meet one of fitness mentors in person @stevecook and got to chat with him for a good 5 mins .. The cool part of this whole story was he was already done for the day but saw us (@nicoletfitness15 and myself) wanting to chat w him and stayed extra even tho we didn’t wait in the 3 hour long line to meet him .. I’ve followed him on IG and YouTube religiously and really want to make a trip out to his new Gym @fitnessculturegym in Utah .. 😎😏💪🏼 #fitlife #gymgrind #bestself #swoldiernation #fitnation #greatambassadorofthesport

#FYR Day 16!!! 🔥🔥🔥 The benefit of working out at home is you can let some of your butter hang out.........then share with the whole internet later on. 😂😂😂 Anyway, this was a #tabatatuesday workout. Those are always killer! I love them though because you know it’s just 20 seconds of work and like @hannaheden_fitness says, you can do anything for 20 seconds. I’m stoked that I’m actually going to finish this program!!! I go to the Arnold in exactly one week from today so that might throw a wrench into things but I’ll figure it out. Maybe bring my laptop and do them in the hotel room??? I know I’ll be getting workouts in with my #BBCOMAmbassador friends so I’m uber focused on prioritizing that!! You gotta do this program...it is something to look forward to everyday, that is for sure. 🔥👊🏼🔥

Busted by #sds I woke up beyond stiff and super sore this morning so I was in the middle of stalling my yoga session when the @mrsgymrhino82 caught me. For the record I did end up doing it but it was probably the most painful yoga session I’ve ever had in my life 😖 #yogajourney #yoga #teamflexxtraordinary #motivation #doitfortheafterphoto #fitness #fitspo #healthy #bodybuilding #gym #gymlife #fitspiration #healthy #250kchallenge #livefit #gains #bestself #bodybuildingcom #stillinit #dymatize #transformforlife #bbcom #weightlossjourney @bodybuildingcom @optimumnutrition

In my bio it says, #confidenceiskey
What does that mean? Well I’m sure it means different things to different people, but for me it’s about owning who you are. I’m not here to say I’m the perfect role model and that I am confident all of the time,no. That line is there in my bio not only as a reminder to you but to me too. Here’s the thing... when I think about being confident and owning who I am, I’ll pump myself up and remind myself that yeah, who cares what others think? I mean everyone is entitled to their own opinion, right? But if you’re happy then why waste time worrying that it might not be what everyone else wants? It really is a waste of time to worry about the small things, making yourself uncomfortable to please others, or allowing inconveniences to get the best of you. I say, it’s a better use of time to not worry about the outside world and their judgements, but instead just pour confidence into yourself and let. it. shine. There are few things better than the a person with confidence and complete ownership of who they are. I am who I am I like it that way. If I like the way I look, fell, am, etc. then idk why I would waste my time being anything or anyone else bc I already have it pretty great. And working on confidence and showing you guys just how crazy, quirky, awesome and fun I am is just what I’m going to continue to do.

Did you lift heavy and wake up with a sore low back? Or has sitting all day caused tension in the muscles of your low back? Try this yomo segment for relief

It is 2:20 pm and this is what the scale shows??? 🤔🤔🤔
I just witnessed the weirdest thing ever.
I started this challenge weighing 138.2 I stuck at 136-137 for a few weeks so discouraged almost gave up but decided to keep going no matter what, even if I was struggling with digestion problems. Just last morning I weighed myself and the scale showed exactly 136 at just 6 weeks of this challenge.
This morning I was at 134.8 How can I be dropping weight that fast?
