You know those certain workouts that leave you feeling so accomplished + full of endorphins? Well today was the opposite of all that...... 🤣 #ontothenext
A few reminders as we head into the Holidays 🦃 regarding friends and family who may not share or even know how to support your healthy lifestyle (and I would never try to understand all the complexities of different relationships, so take what applies and leave the rest👇🏼...... #notdrphil )
1️⃣ Change is SLOW- Probably was for you, too and it’s easy to lose sight of where we started. So be patient with people and meet them where they are instead of expecting them to instantly understand your current habits
2️⃣ Lead with kindness 🥰- Little remarks here and there will probably happen— a lot of times its because that person would like the discipline YOU have— be gracious and kind when you can and be quiet when you can’t 😅
3️⃣ People >. Your people will remember how you made them FEEL not whether you ate/didn’t eat something.....also, you won’t remember it either, so don’t take it all too seriously 😉 Make memories and have fun and squeeze them.....and then suggest a family walk 🙌🏼
4️⃣ Different is just fine- I’m exactly like this is other ways— watching sports is so boring to me— so I can easily 🙄 or make a snide remark when people want to do that for an eternity, but that’s really the exact same concept about their hobby/interests
I now how cramps in my fingers from typing and my stomach👿...... #womanhood
‼️Curious: Do you like watching sports?? 📺👇🏼 I will play almost anything, but watching turns my attention span into a gnats

Today is #transdayofremembrance and we are honoring just some of our transgender community members, predominantly black trans women, we have lost in 2019 alone. And know there are likely more we don’t even know about. This is a literal epidemic. And we’re not just saying that: the @amermedicalassn has declared the killing of trans people an epidemic. We need to support and protect our entire community, especially any of us with comparative safety or privilege.

S/O to @officialpandaexpress for the quick #keto dinner! 😋 Grilled teriyaki chicken and super greens! So for anyone struggling with ordering healthy when on the go this is how I do it.
1. Try to order everything with all sauces or condiments on the side!!! This is important because alot of sauces have extra calories, sugars and CARBS! So I urge you to watch that.
2.) You absolutely cannot go wrong with a lean protein source and vegetables if available. Salads are included but watch the cheese, dressing etc.
3.)Lastly do NOT be afraid to customize your order! Becoming fit should be a life long adventure so it has to sustainable. Fast options are convenient and sometimes the best option if you have no others. 🤷♀️ ❤ SAVE this example for the next time you're out and about. 😎
Cue the dark evenings ruining the lighting in pictures 😅 tonight I was feeling inspired to make cauliflower hot wings after watching Paul Rudd on hot ones last night 🔥 while I was making a healthy switch I decided to go all out and make healthy versions of mac & cheese and fries too!
Instead of boxed macaroni and cheese I simmered garlic in oil, boiled noodles, then I mixed them together and added in the desired amount of cheese. Super easy and a lot more quality nutrients than in boxed.
French fries were made by simply cutting up potatoes, coating them in olive oil, seasoning with onion powder, pepper and a smidge of salt and baking until crispy. So easy!
My cauliflower was covered in whole grain flour, onion powder and olive oil then baked, dipped in franks red hot sauce and baked again. This too was so easy & packed with flavor!
Try these healthy versions without losing the deliciousness of your favorite comfort foods 😋

We give birth, and society tells us our bodies are supposed to look exactly the same as before.
Then it happens. We get big. We become round. Our legs are attacked by cellulite on all cylinders. We are pushing, OMG MY INSIDES. PLEASE, GET THIS BABY OUT!
Then we have this beautiful baby with cherub cheeks cradled in our arms. But our bodies, well, they feel like we just got hit by a car--- twice. Like the car decided to reverse to see what it hit and accidentally ran us over again.
And then it’s time to nurse this baby. JUST WHAT WE WANT TO DO.
When we get home, we look in the full-length mirror for the first time and realize:
“OMG, WAS I REALLY PREGNANT WITH TWINS AND ONE IS STILL IN THERE?” Why the heck do I still look five-months pregnant?
That's when we realize, man, our bodies are never going to be completely the same--and we get some mom bod anxiety.
Mom bod anxiety is:
"I hate how this looks on me," we say, staring into the mirror in a huff, peering at this new butt we have. IT LOOKS SO BIG AND NOT IN A PERKY CUTE WAY. We sulk and put away the jeans that used to be our go-to.
Mom bod anxiety is looking at what once were abs that’s now flabby skin—and wanting to plan a funeral to mourn the loss of those beautiful abs because we feel THAT sad for the loss of what once was.
Mom bod anxiety is going swimsuit shopping and seeing every blemish, stretch mark, scar-- and putting that suit back on the rack.
Mom bod anxiety is when we keep looking down at our shirt to make sure we didn’t leak milk. It’s feeling a constant state of engorgement that makes us uncomfortable all the time.
Mom bod anxiety is when someone throws us a compliment, and we throwback "well, you should see underneath my clothes—everything is all over the place."
And it’s hard not to be like this because society tells us to get our bodies back, and fast!
To overcome mom bod anxiety, we need to accept SOCIETY AS UNREALISTIC by: getting rid of our pre-pregnancy body goals—because no matter how much weight we lose our bodies will never be exactly the same; (Continued in comments)

Se a uns 4 anos atrás alguém me dissesse que eu estaria em um clipe, de só de body e meia calça, com os braços de fora e todas as curvas em evidência, eu iria rir e falar que não existia chance alguma disso acontecer!
Eu fico muito feliz de olhar pra trás e ver o quanto eu evolui nesse sentido, isso não quer dizer eu ainda não tenha minhas questões e sofra com as minhas crises, mas olhar pra trás e ver quanta insegurança eu superei sozinha, enche meu coração.
De pensar que eu era a pessoa que ia pra praia e ficava de blusa, que não entrava na água ou só entrava quando não tivesse ngm olhando. O sofrimento que isso me causava, o constrangimento, o medo do que os outros iam pensar...
Não deixo mais de viver e fazer coisas que eu amo como ir na praia e entrar no mar, aparecer em vídeos sem me cobrir toda ou curtir qualquer momento por vergonha do meu corpo.
O amor próprio é construído em pequenas doses e eu tenho muito orgulho de onde eu já cheguei. ✨
Caso vc tenha lido até aqui e ainda não conferiu esse close maravilhoso, vou deixar o link nos stories e salvo nos destaques! Corre lá! 😊
✨CORE & CARDIO✨
If you hate running on a treadmill, or just despise any cardio machine...circuit training involving some HIIT & compound exercises is a perfect substitute to get your cardio in & that heart rate up!🔥
I LOVE circuits like these cuz it hits EVERYTHING.
Abs aren’t formed by doing a thousand crunches.
They’re 1...made mostly in the kitchen🥬🥑🍎 & 2...training PROPERLY & incorporating compound exercises that target total core.💪🏻
Give this circuit a try & trust me, you’ll get your fix of that cardio high.🙌🏻😏
4 exercises. 1 minute for each. 4-5 rounds. Minimal rest between exercises. 1 minute rest between rounds.
SAVE FOR LATER & TAG A BUDDY👯♀️
"Body positive"? Or LAZY? At one time I accepted my "fate" to be a Walmart scooter rider who wore grey sweatpants in public. Then I decided f*ck that. I'm in better shape at 43 than I was at 21. "Body positive" DOES NOT = HEALTHY. Start feeling good by your CHOICES.
One glimpse into the Oblivion,
And I saw Myself,
Reflecting in the Sky.
Amongst stars a Billion,
I felt like an Elf
But Oh, I felt High.
Pondering upon Realisation,
Realisation struck my mind
Of why I was Escaping,
To myself I've always been Unkind.
And I've come to Conclude,
That it took me 17 years,
Excluding 5 of my childhood
It took me a Mother, a Father,
Who about my size, always Bother
Two men I Loved,
To them I had my heart cuffed,
And four who loved Me
One of them, being my own Sex,
Had me all Glee.
Two Best Friends that turned to Three
A homosexual lover, who from The world's chains, broke Free
And one mentor, a guide sent to Me
To make me Realise,
That it is all meant to Be.
All this, and all That
The laughter, the Trauma
The love, the Drama
Heart full of Heartaches
Seeking joy in buttercream Cupcakes.
The world was Conspiring
For me to come to This?
While my Universe Awoke,
To conspire against the World
For it never suited me, the way it Is.
All this, and all That
Making me want to accept Myself,
And maybe Now,
I am Starting
Starting with a Little
To Love Myself. -BK
