sequinissues It's not always easy.
In fact, it's hardly ever easy.
I've had people say to me "I'm afraid to start working out because I'm so out of shape."
...I just want you to take a second and really listen to that. Listen to how silly that sounds.
I was out of shape when I started at 320 pounds. I couldn't do a single burpee. I couldn't jog. I couldn't do a set of mountain climbers for longer than ten seconds.
And guess what? Forty pounds later? I STILL have to modify. I can only do about three very modified burpees at a time. My knee bothers me a lot, so I march out my high knees instead of jogging. I was able to complete sixty seconds of mountain climbers without dropping to my knees for the first time JUST TODAY.
I'm not asking you to be perfect right out the gate.
I'm not asking you to be perfect six months from now.
I'm asking you to try.
I'm asking you to take a chance on yourself.
I did.

sequinissues My newest @alexandani bracelet, purchased as a reward for myself. This month, I've hit so many goals that I've set for myself. I lost 10% of my starting body weight. I took the plunge, became a health & fitness coach, and started a home business. I met and exceeded all the initial business goals I set for myself, and the month's not even over yet. So, this is here to remind me of some very important things whenever I look at it.

From the website: "A perfectly crafted, 8-sided sun represents the universal law that life’s outcomes are a reflection of your efforts. You have limitless opportunity to positively lead and affect others. Empower yourself to shine brighter than yesterday, to let your passions spark action. Astound yourself and those around you with your abilities. Embrace the energy of this powerful charm and create your own new beginning." #charmedarm #weighloss #weightlossmotivation #motivation #bosslady

sequinissues Y'all, @bigphill83 just took me to a restaurant where "Mac and cheese" is an ENTIRE SECTION of the menu and I managed to order a freaking SALAD. #nsv fo sho! And it was delicious too. Blackened salmons, arugula, chopped fruit, toasted almonds, and a huckleberry vinaigrette. This, AND the wine, all managed to fit into my #21dayfix meal plan for the day. I've NEVER trusted myself to choose well when eating out in the past, but on our past two date nights I have not only chosen healthy options but I have more importantly ENJOYED them. This is huge, and I'm giving myself a pat on the back for it. #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #health #healthyeats #healthinhabit #healthybutton #noms #eatrealfood #workinonmyfitness 2d

sequinissues I just tried my very first chocolate Shakeology this morning and... I can see what all the fuss is about! Vanilla was good, but this is super rich and delicious. It reminds me of the signature hot chocolate mix that Starbucks used to carry around the holidays. Really rich and smooth. But obviously a LOT more nutrient dense and less caloric. Blended it with water, three ice cubes, half a frozen banana, and a tablespoon of organic peanut butter. Quick and easy post-workout fuel! #noms #healthyeats #healthyrecipes #eatrealfood #fitness 2d
  •   fitmomma.2 Omg!! I love chocolate shakeology!! Did you have it plain or add to it? I always add peanut butter to mine and it taste like a Reese's.. Yum! 2d

sequinissues My #transformationtuesday better late than never. There are no miracle pills or magic wands here. Just willpower and determination and a desire for change. But I couldn't have done any of it without the amazing network of women who have kept me honest. I have TWO spots left in my accountability group that is starting in less than a week. Comment below for more info. 3d

sequinissues Done! Made the sauce and the fillings for tonight's enchiladas, black beans, a big batch of brown rice, and roasted chili lime chicken for salads! All in about an hour. The only thing I didn't get done are the turkey burgers, because my ground turkey didn't thaw fast enough. But I'll get that done after lunch and... After I do all the dishes 4d

sequinissues I woke up this morning and, for the first time in my life, was actively excited about working out. Like, jumped out of bed thinking "YES! I get to do this!" I am so pumped to be back on a schedule and a meal plan. I spent the last week trying to jigsaw together my workouts and nutrition and, more often than not, made the wrong choices. That works for some people. But if I've discovered anything in the last few months, it's that I need a program to follow. I need the guesswork taken out of it for me. I start round 2 of 21 Day Fix this morning and I'm SO excited. #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #health #healthybutton #healthyeats #21dayfix #workinonmyfitness #fitness #exercise #eatrealfood #fitfam #fitgirl #fitness #motivation #motivationmonday #nevergiveup 4d

sequinissues Guys! I am seriously SO blown away by the awesome responses I've already gotten, and I am so freaking excited to be working with the amazing ladies who are already on board with me. If anyone is interested, please know that I only have a FEW spots left!

In one week, I'm launching a 21 Day Fit & Fierce Summer Squad! I'm looking for 5-10 ladies who are SERIOUS about taking charge of their health by making a sustainable change in their nutrition and fitness. This group is perfect for busy gals like me who are looking for a quick, at-home workout with zero guesswork. You'll participate in a fitness program, follow a structured but customize-able meal plan, and get the support system you need to stay on track!

I've made AMAZING strides in my fitness journey in the last few months, and I want to pay it forward!! Please comment or message me if you're interested.

sequinissues My delicious farmer's market haul! I feel so much better knowing I have fresh veggies in the fridge now-- it's been slim pickings since we got back from Orlando. This is all local, mostly organic, and best of all... I spent about $25 for it. #eatrealfood #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #smallbusiness #shoplocal #fitfam #fitgirl #fitness #health #healthyeats #healthybutton #21dayfix 6d
