As Iโ€™ve continued to heal my relationship with food, the scale, and my self image, my body has continued to change.โฃ

I think itโ€™s incredibly important to share where Iโ€™m at and be 100% transparent.โฃ

I am at a very healthy body weight & body fat percentage for my size and personal body. โฃ
My relationship with food is better than it has ever been.โฃ
I’m working to slowly increase my calories and maintain my weight.โฃ
I’ve lost some strength and am completely okay with it. It’s taught me to ease up my expectations and pressure on myself with my fitness and I’ve never felt happier about that.โฃ

There were times were I was incredibly unhappy and insecure with how I looked, yet continued to show up.โฃ
โฃ
There were times when I was struggling terribly with binge eating and sticking to a diet, yet continued to show up.โฃ

And now as I repair my metabolism, health, and work towards the healthiest and happiest version of myself, I’m going to continue to show up.โฃ

For the love of Carbs

You donโ€™t have to stop eating them by 5pm.โฃ
Carbs alone will not cause you to gain weight.โฃ
โฃ
Carbs are our body’s most preferred energy source. They keep our bodies, fueled, running optimally, and happy.โฃ
โฃ
And letโ€™s be real, theyโ€™re delicious.โฃ
โฃ
Another interesting fact – excess carbohydrates in our body are relatively difficult to store as body fat when eaten in excess. Excess fats are more efficiently and easily stored as body fat when compared to carbs.โฃ
โฃ
๐๐จ๐ญ๐ญ๐จ๐ฆ ๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐ž: eat your carbs, enjoy them, and stop viewing food as good or bad.โฃ
โฃ
Itโ€™s all just fuel.โฃ
โฃ
Any fuel eaten in excess will eventually lead to fat gain… just like consuming less fuel than your body burns will eventually lead to fat loss. โฃ
โฃ
What matters most is choosing the right fuel for your body to keep you energized, satisfied, and mentally happy so you can sustain it forever.โฃ

Egg White Pizza

๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ• ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•

I got so many questions about this recipe!! It was so easy to make and is such a great way to get your pizza fix.

Mix together:
๐Ÿณ 3 servings liquid egg whites
๐Ÿดยฝ tbs. Baking powder (itโ€™s a lot)
๐Ÿฅฅ 4 grams coconut flour
๐Ÿง‚ Pepper

Pour into a hot skillet and cook like you would a large pancake. Once you flip you can add toppings of your choice. I used baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, and Trader Joeโ€™s almond ๐Ÿง€cheese shreds.

Turn off your heat cover and let sit until your cheese melts. Enjoy!! Easy peasey!

To stop focusing on those last 5lbs and start creating some fitness goals to work towards. (๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ) โฃ
โฃ
When I asked what one fitness goal was you’d like to accomplish was in the comments, I realized a big disconnect…. โฃ
โฃ
“๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ถ๐˜ฑ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜บ ๐˜ง๐˜ข๐˜ต” โฃ

“๐˜ง๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ”โฃ
โฃ
… and the list continued. โฃ
โฃ
Here’s the issue with this, these response were focused on the things these women wanted to ๐‚๐‡๐€๐๐†๐„ instead of the things they wanted to ๐€๐‚๐‚๐Ž๐Œ๐๐‹๐ˆ๐’๐‡. โฃ
โฃ
Reality is, we can spend all day wishing we would have a flatter tummy, lose 5lbs, or grow a booty. โฃ
โฃ
But we’re in for a big disappointment and a long frustrating ride when we realize that focusing on those things, often only makes us notice those “imperfections” we want to alter more and more without any real results. โฃ
โฃ
Instead, what if you flipped your focus to things like squatting more weight (๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ง๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜บ). โฃ
Running a faster mile (๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜จ๐˜ฉ๐˜ต ๐˜ซ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ข ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ต๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ด ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ง๐˜ข๐˜ต). โฃ
Or getting your very first pull ups (๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜จ๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฎ๐˜ด ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ต). โฃ
โฃ
When we start to focus on the things we want to accomplish you’ll find you start to care a whole lot less about the things you want to change. โฃ
โฃ
You start to focus on ways you can work to improve. โฃ
You start to focus on finding workouts you enjoy and thrive with. โฃ
You start to celebrate small wins like doing one more push up, one extra rep, or that 1 minute off of your mile time. โฃ
โฃ
You start to care a whole lot less about how your body looks and focus more on what your body is capable of doing. โฃ
