I’ve been getting asked a ton about what I’m doing differently right now, and my answer is always the same.
𝐍𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠. Just a matter of time and consistency.
𝘉𝘶𝘵 𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦’𝘴 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘤𝘢𝘯’𝘵 𝘴𝘦𝘦…
For years I was working hard on my fitness, building strength, and pushing myself as much as I could with my workouts.
I was eating at maintenance or even in a surplus at times.
I was fueling my body to perform well, but wasn’t always happy or confident with how I looked.
Earlier this year, when stay at home orders happened I was forced to refocus. My training slowed down a bit. My fitness expectations lowered and I decided to experiment with fat loss. As I did this my body started to really transform.
But I want to assure you that the progress you’re seeing now is not the work of overnight changes.
It’s not solely due to a few months of changes and being in a calorie deficit.

The phase I’m in now is allowing you to physically see my progress. But to me it’s more of a reminder that the work you put in now may take years to see later.
Your fitness journey will forever be evolving and changing.
At times your focus may be based on how you feel or perform in the gym, other times it may be simply visual and how you want to appear. But I guarantee if you focus on becoming the healthiest & happiest version of you, the pieces will fall into place as they’re supposed to.
Just because you may not be seeing the progress you’d like to right now, don’t discount your hard work.
Keep pushing, stay consistent, and trust that with time your journey will take you exactly where you choose to be.
