This hits home every time I read it - such wisdom and truth! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Iโ€™ve never had disordered eating but I know I have to be careful because I can find myself falling into unhealthy thoughts about eating and good. This is always a good reminder of โ€œnormalโ€ for me! -

THIS ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Iโ€™d never seen this quote before, but as soon as I read it, I realized it was my #motivation for 2017. Iโ€™ve given up before and I know what that looks like, so this year I wanted to try something different! Certainly wasnโ€™t perfect, didnโ€™t see as much change as I wanted. But I didnโ€™t give up and now I have a new outlook. I view exercise differently, I view food differently, and I view self-care differently - all changes for the better. My goal for 2018 is to keep stumbling forward and see where it takes me โค๏ธ

Super excited to try the new @kelseywells PWR program when I finish up #bbground2. I love adding in weights and the set up she uses will be a nice change of pace from circuit training! -

๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ my yogurt bowl this morning - I used frozen berries and @naturespathorganic Love Crunch granola. SOOO yummy. I know itโ€™s trendy now to make little bowls of art for breakfast but I ainโ€™t got time for that so sorry this isnโ€™t more picturesque ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

The end of the semester rush and winter always make me lose momentum. The past few years, this is about the time I stop working out completely until about March when I panic about swimsuit season ๐Ÿ‘™โ˜€๏ธ so when I was (again) running out of steam and my hubby read me this quote, it kicked my butt back into action. My goal isnโ€™t to look good in a bikini but I do want to feel good in my body any time of year. Also pictured: my new @gymsharkwomen legging I got on Black Friday that I LOVE. I usually hate working out in legging because theyโ€™re so hot but these are amazing!! Totally lived up to the hype. Wearing the flex leggings size small. -

I know I post pictures like this all the time but this puppy just loves to join me in my cool down. Does anyone else have to stretch around their dog? PS please ignore my horrible form and focus on the cute puppy ๐Ÿถ Not pictured: my Christmas decorations on the other side of the couch!๐ŸŽ„

This is on the window in my office at practicum, and I LOVE this message. Itโ€™s such a valuable lesson, not only for my patients, but for everyone. Whether the pain be temporary, chronic, mental, or physical, we have a choice about whether or not we suffer in the pain. It can come as a surprise to people that they donโ€™t have be miserable while they are hurting, and this gives them hope! I think about this a lot in the middle of work outs I want to quit or days I want to give up. -

You have to be responsible for your own health, and sometimes that means taking a step back and weighing up where you're at. Do you need an extra day of rest while you get over illness? Do you feel like you should repeat a week in the app because you haven't progressed to where YOU want to be? Don't feel guilty. Every step counts and you are taking care of you, as best you can.

I made a really awesome lunch and this is all I have left to show you guys ๐Ÿ™ˆ tuna steak, red potatoes, and salad with feta, dried cranberries, and homemade balsamic vinaigrette ๐Ÿ˜‹ hubby was pleased and my body is happy to have yummy, healthy food for lunch! Iโ€™ll be honest, #mealprep and healthy eating are thorns in my side. Iโ€™m trying to be better about sticking to my meal plan, and Iโ€™m also trying to be forgiving to myself when I slip up. -

I tried sushi for the first time ever a few days ago - spicy California roll. Not going to lie, I was pleasantly surprised! Now Iโ€™ve just #fullbody and I want more! I have no clue if sushi is healthy, but it tasted like it was good for me and Iโ€™m sure it was better than the fast food restaurants I passed to get there ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ #postworkoutmeal? -

I seriously underestimated how difficult it would be to workout first thing in the morning! ๐Ÿ˜† I know a lot of people do it but if Iโ€™m going to stick with this, I need to figure out how to not feel like death in the middle of the workout! How do you morning people have the energy to work out so early?! -

So this is the choice everyone in the #bbgsupportgroup talks about ๐Ÿค” while I love the idea of continuing on, Iโ€™m going back to the beginning to focus on form. Guess Iโ€™m rocking #bbgweek1 again this morning! -

Reminds me of @cake_yes_please post today โ€œDonโ€™t quit today. No one ever starts over on a Saturday.โ€ This is hard work but itโ€™s worth it. Iโ€™m continuously reminding myself there are no overnight results so I keep going and growing! -
