I took this when I decided to give up bread for three weeks.. which meant no daily pb&j sandwiches😩it was the death of me.
For this new year I’ve been trying to figure out what kind of food responds well with my body to reach a certain fitness goal and it hasn’t been easy😅so much trial and error and self discipline. But with it being winter I’m just like whatever.. I’ll eat that other donut 🤤😂
I need that summer motivation back. #throwback

8 weeks out and counting! Nerves have started to kick in. My focus now is posing and walking in heels 😂
Here’s the REAL #Tea sis: The other day I asked what you’d like to see more of on my page, & tons of you said “more swipe workouts” “more recipes”, “more motivational talks”…
Of course, I will continue to do my best to share with you snippets of my workouts, or what I’m eating that day, and motivational talks post workout, but can I be honest for a sec…?
How many swipe workouts that you’ll save for later, or recipes have screenshot in the last 6 months?! My guess is probably at least a 100, if not more…
But yet, you’re still struggling to scrap up motivation to get yourself to the gym or always feel like the gremlins inside your head are screaming at you which leads you to fall off track with your nutrition…?
I have a hunch…
Could it be that you have no real *skin in the game*?
… that you have believed that you can do this journey *alone*?
Or that you’re buying into the lie that “tomorrow will be better” but tomorrow is always one more day away?
When I first started out, I didn’t value investment
I didn’t believe that it was investment that was holding me back, I just thought there was something wrong with me…
Something wrong because the DESIRE was in me, but the willingness to invest to cultivate the desire wasn’t there…therefore I could never seem to commit.
Last year alone, I invested more on myself than I had previously made in 3 years combined.
Yes it was scary, and of course I had doubts…
But want to know something crazy?! When I chose to level up in the investment on myself, something inside of me clicked like it had never before, and I actually started to see RESULTS.
Investment is a powerful thing, if you allow it to be.
It provides shortcuts by learning from those who have been in your shoes and understand how hard it can be trying to embark on your goals alone.
It’s not more CONTENT that you need, it’s community. It’s a tribe of women coming together to support & lift one another up.
What is it worth to you to finally feel comfortable and confident in your own skin again?
My guess is not free…at least I hope not.
Because you’re worth much more than free. 🤟🏼 #TheThriveTribe ✨

The countdown to The Arnold continues. Come by our booth (922) and say hello to @jayy_yyy. She’ll def leave you seeing double!!! Ha!!! 🔥💪🔥💪🔥
Happy Tuesday!! I wanted to remind you that is not healthy to compare your life to other people. Instead, invest your energy into something that is going to contribute to your growth. Don’t focus on what everybody is doing, what other people are accomplishing, stop comparing your body with someone on social media, invest your time to improve yourself and how to become a better person. Life is beautiful🦋
Give yourself permission to not make sense at times. Learn to be ok and comfortable with that. Always speak from your heart. Not everyone will understand your feels, but that doesn’t make them wrong...you’re just misunderstood. Guess what? That’s perfectly ok♥️
Just when you thought you’re close to your fitness goal...but apparently you’re not. 😩😂 I’m slowly trying to get back on track...It’s almost a year since my injury & I’ve been trying to get that “sexy” 👙back 😉😜...but still have a long way to go. 😳 I struggle at the gym, my mindset is not 💯% & my diet is out of whack 🙄😜 Juggling between a full time job, my beauty business & my family, sometimes I just don’t know when & how I can squeeze in a workout. But I always push myself to make things happen no matter what...I just wish I had all the time & energy in the world haha 😁😅 I’m posting a pic of me in 2016 & this year to inspire me & keep me motivated 🥰
I decided to do a 28-day challenge to get back in shape again in honor of my 1 year post injury 💪🏻 Today is day 1 of 28. 💕 “You’re not meant to do what’s easy, you’re meant to continue to challenge yourself!” 💖
Today was—long?? Idk how to explain it. I did my workout, grocery shopped, met with my thesis advisor, had 3 rehearsals for different events...I’m pooped.
🌟 #fitgirlvarsity plz help:🌟
1. I ate all my calories for the day and am so hydrated my pee is clear and am still hungry! What do? Can I eat a piece of fruit?
2. Bridges without modifications hurt? Like, real bad? Idk I might have bad form, but it SUCKS, so I do regular bridges.
Still recovering from my concussion/whiplash so I finally have some extra time on my hands. With that being said I just made these short clips from my workout 2 weeks ago 2/7/19 • enjoy! ⇢ Last video is my fave Coach T always pushing me to my limits Aaahhhhh!!! 😆
So here is me at my starting point, 21 weeks out from the @wbff_aust July show. Honestly I’m already so stoked with my body if not purely because of the huge changes I worked hard to achieve, in my off season, with the wonderful @denver_steyn .
For me competing is self fulfilling, a challenge and a beautiful way to make new friendships. Prepping is not the easiest thing in the world as it does take a lot of sacrifice and can be both mentally/physically draining. I am committed however to making this prep highly enjoyable, through making the following changes, that might also help you if you are looking to compete:
1. If following another competitor (or
person in general) makes you feel not good enough or lesser than your amazing self, unfollow. There is no rules about who you have to follow on prep or in life.
2. Don’t cut yourself out of all social events as while it might seem like an easy way to stay away from temptations, it’s will leave you feeling alone and left out. I can’t wait to be at all my lovely friends 21st’s because they are important events to celebrate, drinking or not!
3. Don’t compare your prep to anyone else’s. No one has the same body, coach or mind and therefore, like anything in life, no two preps will be the same.
4. Understand that not everyone will “get” competing. There will be people close to you who will say it’s unhealthy or that you look better normally. Ignore them. You are doing this for you, not for anyone else.
5. Don’t resent the process. You chose to prep. You chose the struggle. Don’t make others around you pay for your decision. Remember your “why”.
Anyways these are just a few of the things I plan on implementing this prep, to make it as enjoyable as possible. Love Lola 💋 #wbffsyd19 -
Ps don’t you just lol at that 5:30am morning face and hair 😂
3 days to the bootcamp. 3 years of hard work leading to this point. Waking up every day at 4:30am to train. Little did I know it was all leading up to this point. It’s been a bumpy road. A journey of sweat. Tears. Fear. But it’s all been worth it. God, I’m eternally grateful. I am a tad nervous. A tad scared. Not sure where the road leads from here, but I ask that You continue to direct my steps. I will continue to place my trust and faith in you. All through your will and nothing else. Thank you for your kind words and support, it truly means so much to me. Truly.
