Don’t get me wrong - I 100% advocate for clean eating. But this is a perfect example of why clean eating alone, without watching food intake or macro ratios, will almost NEVER produce weight loss. The macros for these 2 bars are basically the same - both high in fat, carbs and sugar. And your body processes all sugar the same - whether it’s fruit, dates, honey, agave, or white sugar. It will go to fill muscle & liver glycogen, and will then be stored as body fat if glycogen stores are full. My standards for a protein bar are high, and very few products meet this criteria. My bars must be: low fat, low sugar and high in fiber (fiber lowers the NET carbs). Which bars meet this standard? Quest Bars, No Cow Bars, Garden of Life Weight Loss Bars, and some of the Julian’s Bakery Bars. #iifym
I always had these delts. Genetics 🤷🏼♀️ But I never appreciated them until bodybuilding. I think lifting weights lets women love their bodies. We try to shrink our bodies for years with cardio - but weights let’s you embrace those shoulders, quads, booty - and then you begin to love the process of “shape shifting” and sculpting your physique into something you can be proud of - your masterpiece, that you built ❤️#bodypositive #liftandbelifted#deltsfordays
Guilty as charged! It’s ok to have fitness goals, but it’s also important to make time for your crew. I was happy to see mine yesterday for impromptu BBQ, and even kept my food well within my macros☺️(I brought a salad, obviously lol 😂) It just takes determination to hit those macros at events - bring a dish, or check the restaurant menu ahead of time, and have a game plan in mind. Better yet - track that meal first thing in the AM, so you can plan the rest of your meals around it! #iifym

Vegan. Paleo. Keto. Who cares. When you find a diet that you love, you want to sing it from the rooftop. But you know what won’t sway someone to try your diet? Being self righteous. Telling them how wrong their diet is. You catch more flies with honey, honey. Let the results do the talking👉🏼👙😮#damngirl And this is yet another reason I ❤️ IIFYM - because guess what? A donut has the same amount of carbs as a banana - and if you want a MF donut, have one, track it, and move on with yo life #donutlifethatis 🍩🍌
Raise your hand if you don’t have 2 hours to spend in the gym every day 🙋🏼♀️ Raise your hand if you still want to lose weight anyway 🙋🏼♀️ Read ON for my TOP 4 weight loss tips for busy ass people! 1️⃣ Become a morning person. Do your workout as soon as you wake up. Fasted workout is fine (but you must eat breakfast afterward). First, your workout is over & done with. Second, this AM exercise regulates your circadian rhythm to help you go to sleep earlier. (Conversely, a very late workout can really f*ck up your sleep cycle). 2️⃣ Workout at home (in the AM, see step 1!). Walmart & Amazon sell all kinds of affordable workout equipment. My personal favorites? Dumbbells that can add & subtract weight, and my incline sit up bench. Bodyweight HIIT workouts are great too, and require zero equipment. 3️⃣ Make your DIET do the majority of the work. Nutrition is 80% of your weight loss success anyway. You can’t outwork a shitty diet. But on the flipside, you can get away with LESS exercise if your diet is SMART and EFFECTIVE. 4️⃣ Do double workouts when you have time. I do a double workout every Saturday & Sunday. This allows me to schedule unplanned rest days during the work week where I just can’t find the time. SIMPLE AS THAT! #getshredded
Whatchu know bout that sled? Every workout at @f45westcoralsprings is different - different circuits, different equipment (my personal favorites are the TRX straps and BATTLE ROPES!!😍). If you are one of those people that get easily bored with your workout, the HIIT workouts from @f45_training will definitely keep you on your toes 🏋🏼♀️🤟🏼The next 8 week challenge starts October 8, and your first week is FREE! #dontstopgetitgetit
What I love the most about this comparison is the look of pride & contentment in both pics. Be proud of yourself for showing up to do the work, even when you can’t see the finish line, and be proud of yourself when you get there. #transformationtuesday

37 is the new 27 #mombod 💁🏼♀️👙👌🏼 No but seriously, I wish I had known then what I know now about diet & fitness...and its why I love helping my clients learn about a sustainable diet, that actually produces RESULTS - so I can save them from the aggravation & time wasted on stupid diets that don’t!
Before my wedding in 2010, I put myself on a low carb, sugar free diet. But once a week, I had a cheat day! Pizza, burger, whatever I was craving. I felt guilty about it, but I was losing lots of weight at the time. 7 years later, when I entered the world of bodybuilding, I realized those cheat days were actually weekly “refeeds” and that had been a large part of my weight loss success! A refeed can be the key to a FAST METABOLISM & overcoming a dreaded “scale plateau”. If you’re feeling guilty about craving carbs, it’s time to drop the “diet guilt”! If you want to understand how weekly pizza can actually help you LOSE WEIGHT, send me a PM!
If you keep telling yourself “I don’t have time to workout,” you’re lying to yourself. Take 25 minutes for yourself, and get to work shredding that physique🏃🏻♂️👌🏼🏃🏽♀️#hiitworkout #hiititandquitit#hiitcardio
