gaining muscle forgetting the scale!

My Arms Time to WO

Hi Everyone I wanted to give you all a update on my fitness journey.  I took some back shots but they came out so dark. While taking the photos I was kinda surprised to see how my arms are developing  from doing push-up (yay!) As my journey continues working on my core seems to be the hardest place for me to tackle and see results,… even with a mostly clean diet. I have had gains to my glutes tho, I  had to laugh today while running for the first time in a couple of months (after doing resistance training only)..things seemed to be a little more wiggly back there (lol). It’s ok because I feel healthy, happy, stronger and juicy like a woman is suppose to be!

Forget the scale!!

forget the scale

I feel so happy and blessed to have made it to see another year!  As the work continues I just want to say that I have embraced no longer living by my scale..I got rid of it (months ago) and it feels amazing.  I judge myself based on how I feel and look when I stand in front of the mirror.  No more judging myself by what the number on the scale says hallelujah!!  It’s freedom at its best, just to show you how tricky the scale can be take a look at the photos below.  Pretty amazing!!!  Now that the holidays are over, like many of you I had my fair share and then some of treats!!  Why?? well.. because it’s the holidays and that’s what we do!!  Enjoying good food family and friends is so wonderful and I would never sacrifice that for being so restrictive about my diet.  For me, I Eat clean (mostly) and I don’t sweat the treats every now and then…no biggie!!  Lift weights (strength train) and get moving not because you’re on a diet or a weight loss program do it because you have decided that you want to be healthy and look & feel amazing for as long as you have life and breath….Don’t let life and circumstances decide for you!  As always,  you determine what looks and feels good  (according to YOU) because what that looks like is different for all of us.  God bless you if you are continuing journey or just getting started, be kind to yourself and others,…train and be committed like a BEAST!!!
