mssherryblossom I indulged in deviled eggs, home made mashed potatoes with gravy, baked salmon and shrimp skewers. Now these food items are actually pretty clean!!! My cheat was my 3 Cranberry-Rita Mimosas and a flute of the Pink Moscato I received as a gift (loveeeee it! Lol).... The key to maintaining your fitness journey during the Holidays is simple! NO LEFTOVERS!!!! If the items aren't CLEAN EAT FOODS just let them be eaten by someone else! (I don't even take anything home) Many of you can't wait to dig into all the food goodness of yesterday but by the rolling in of the new year you'll be upset at your weight gain or not hitting your fitness goals! Don't make MULTIPLE decisions that will cost you more in the long run.

You can do this!

mssherryblossom I was just over 160lbs in this photo 3 years ago. I had just begun my #fitwithsherry journey. At my lowest on that journey I was 143lbs. I gained it ALL back and more within 10 months. At the beginning of my latest fitness journey #eatcleantraindirtywithsherry (began June 2014) I was nearly 170lbs. I am 5ft8in tall and my frame changes dramatically with weightloss/weight gain. Imagine 10+ pounds more added to the body frame/shape you see here.
Back then I wore a cover all/blazer with everything to disguise my increasing waist line.

Actually the jeans I'm wearing in this photo are a size 31 waist. I still have the jeans and I was UNABLE to fit them prior to beginning #eatcleantraindirtywithsherry.
Don't fall victim to the "you carry it well" or " but it's distributed evenly on your frame" excuses! Sometime others WANT you to remain OVERWEIGHT if it means they won't have to challenge themselves to lose weight.
If you want to get FIT then do IT! Dont let anyone make you feel like youre insulting others who are your size or bigger than you because you deem your size unfit! SO WHAT!!! if you dont like it for YOU thats YOUR choice! The only person in your way is YOU! Stop the excuses! PUT IN THE WORK! TRUST THE PROCESS! REAP THE REWARDS!

21 DAY WEIGHTLOSS CHALLENGE BEGINS TOMORROW! #weightlosschallengewithsherry LET'S GO! #fitchick #fitchic #gymrat #gymlife #gymaddict #fitness #ebonyfitness #blackfitness #blackaesthetic #gymlife #womenthatlift #womenwholift #weightlifting #strengthtraining #traindirty #fitlife #fitspo #eatcleantraindirtywithsherry #eatcleantraindirty #gym #workout #exercise #workoutqueen #workingout #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation

mssherryblossom I am so incredibly saddened by the senseless act of violence that took these two officers lives. I am saddened that someone who I've known and admired for years @mr_orlandosantiago has been hurt to his core now having to bury his cousin Officer Ramos. My partner at work knew these two men and no one realizes how small the world truly is and how close to home tragedies like this truly are. I am so sorry for your loss. My condolences to his family and friends. I am so appreciative of Officer Ramos and Officer Liu who gave their lives to protect others. I sincerely pray that God strengthens their family, friends and fellow officers and uniformed personnel to continue to be brave and carry on in his honor. Amen.
#RIP #NYSFinest #OfficerLiu #OfficerRamos #NYPD

mssherryblossom Going through some photos and videos. Major #tbt I had "flat ironed" my hair for the first time at 1 year and 2 weeks #natural. This was also right around when I began my #fitwithsherry fitness journey ...I was 160-163lbs at this time. My face was super round! Ill be sharing even clearer photos showing what 160lbs or so looked like on my frame. Remember I weighed even MORE beginning my #eatcleantraindirtywithsherry fitness journey this past June.

mssherryblossom Christmas Breakfast..... Real Multigrain Bread French Toast topped with Organic Agave Nectar and Scrambled Eggs with Cheddar Cheese...down with 12 ounces of water (I've already had 64oz in the past 8hrs!) It's the holidays but I'm doing my best to EAT CLEAN!
My "cheat" is alcohol. I surely will partake in some spirits today!

mssherryblossom I know firsthand that in order to do so I must BE and BELIEVE that in myself. I am a beautiful loving soul and positivity begets positivity.
One of the things I like to do is peruse random instagrams and offer words of encouragement to people. You never know how a kind word may uplift the next person. Try it sometime. You don't have to "follow" someone to talk to someone. You'd be surprised how many wonderful people are out there beyond what your 2 eyes have already seen.
BE A LIGHT! BE KIND! #truth #foodforthought (thanks for sharing @thegarnercircle )

mssherryblossom The TRUTH about SETBACKS and FAILURES when you embark on a FITNESS journey and LIFESTYLE change. KNOW THE DIFFERENCE! It will help you avoid the pitfalls of truly failing yourself. A set back is a STEP BACK! A FAILURE means you've STOPPED ... A COMPLETE HALT! You've given in and UP and DID NOT choose YOU over your biggest excuse. Do NOT QUIT! KEEP GOING! Fxck a setback! Fxck a STEP BACK! MOVE FORWARD! PRESS ON! PUT IN THE WORK! TRUST THE PROCESS! LET'S GO!!!!!

mssherryblossom NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!!! You HAVE to be STRONGER than your BIGGEST EXCUSE or you will DROWN in your own MEDIOCRITY AND COMPLACENCY! @blacbombshell went from 240lbs on the left to a 24 inch waist on the right. She's had ups and downs and continues to put in work with her DAY TO DAY decisions to remain on her lifestyle change and work toward her fitness goals! I'm SICK of the admiration of others yet feeling sorry for one's self! You CAN DO ANYTHING YOU PUT YOUR MIND TOO! I've worked 2 16hrs shifts back to back, went to my sons school, took the family out AND still made it to the gym! You CAN DO IT! Be STRONGER than your BIGGEST excuse! CHOOSE.....YOU!!! Don't choose food, alcohol, negativity, self pity, self doubt, zero willpower or expensive clothes/shoes/bags to hide the fact you're unhappy with yourself! CHOOSE...YOU!!! TODAY! Let'a go! It's HARD...but it's HARDER to keep watching other GO after AND ACHIEVE what you desire for yourself! CHOOSE FXCKING YOU Y'ALL!

mssherryblossom I don't usually post caricatures of what bodies should look like. They can be misinterpreted as borderline fat shaming and I'm not a fan of hurting anyone's feelings. I prefer to share how much I LOVE FITNESS over how much I've (and many others) disliked having a higher body fat percentage than was healthy.
However it's Tuesday and her post used the word "choosing"....reminded me of the song and I started singing "Going UP on a Tuesday. Got your girl....and she choosey" YASSS LOL! I swear the point is coming... I digress.... The point is (clear though): We CHOOSE to let our bodies represent the lifestyle we are living. Notice I didn't say "lifestyle we WANT to live" many aren't happy with their choices but that's just the thing you're CHOOSING to make those decisions. Top pic or bottom pic. It's ALL a choice. I just want you to be HEALTHY and HAPPY! CHOOSE WISELY for its the choices that lead to the results YOU HAVE TO LIVE WITH! Make CHOICES you'll be able to be PROUD OF. Remember not doing anything to change your circumstances is also a (passive) choice so ACTIVELY CHOOSE to be the BEST YOU! Let's go! You can do it!

mssherryblossom The women on my Insta inspire me to smash my goals not buy a bag! ...Fit women be like....HOLIDAY FITNESS.... I'm eating towards my goals!!! YASSSS! Lol! Tuesday #fitspiration ---> @angelasimmons
Nothing like seeing beautiful fit women EATING CLEAN TRAINING DIRTY before your workout and then scrolling again on your Insta after you've smashed your workout and just ate clean getting it in!

THIS COULD BE YOU 6-12 MONTHS FROM TODAY!

mssherryblossom My FAVORITE day ---> #transformationtuesday
LEFT: JUNE 2014 I had just began my #eatcleantraindirtywithsherry journey. I was off to Toronto with my girl @monroesteele and I was determined to eat clean even while there. I was tired of feeling like "front facing" photos were the most flattering because I thoroughly DISLIKED my side profile. This cotton/5% SPANDEX dress was stretched from its size medium (size 7-8) limits surely to the size 10 I truly still was in that picture. I remember snapping this picture and KNOWING it would be a before pic at a later date.
RIGHT: DECEMBER 2014 What a difference ONLY 6 MONTHS will do! SIDE PROFILE BOO! This body con black dress has 4% stretch and I thought about taking it in at the waist (just a little...you can't really see but the material bunches at the upper waist/stomach area a little bit because its not filled in with...well...stomach!) 6 months ago I would have admired the dress on the right from afar too afraid of what it's body con fit would truly reveal.... A BODY FAT PERCENTAGE that was NOT healthy for my age/size/frame... You can do it too! You're probably doing it right now! KEEP GOING! We CAN DO IT! LET'S GO!

mssherryblossom My FAVORITE day ----> #transformationtuesday
LEFT: JUNE 2014 I was a size 10 with a nearly 31 inch UPPER waist squeezing into mediums and smalls and looking stuffed. I REFUSED to accept my ever spreading thighs, stomach, or bust. I was in denial about ALL of it...my weight gain, increasing body fat percentage, and body image complaints except in reference to my butt (I was loving that but even that was more FAT than PHAT!) RIGHT: DECEMBER 2014. Currently I rock my TRUE SIZE clothing. With a 27 inch waist I wouldnt trade for the biggest diamond! LOL! I know if I want to be able to wear a certain size then I have to WORK FOR IT! I can't just stuff myself in it anymore and daydream about if it "only fit better" or "if only I could lose this or lose that"
My goal isn't on a scale and it isn't even in a size. It's in a FEELING that I am being the BEST me that I can be AND IT'S SHOWING!
Read that last sentence again! IT'S IN A FEELING THAT I AM BEING THE BEST ME THAT I CAN BE AND IT'S SHOWING!

No comparison to anyone or anything else. I'm doing me and I'm winning! You can do it too!
