Yesterday was exactly 3 months since shoulder surgery.... fitting I just found this adorable card one of my patients had made me right before ❤️. I totally underestimated the time this would take & how hard it would be! Working on celebrating small victories & practicing patience! 🙌🏻
The punjabi in me goes weak in the knees at the sight of hot buttered naan :p And this black garlic naan is incomparably better than any naan that you have ever had. After curing, garlic acquires the most sought after umami flavor; slightly sweet and caramely, a bit like anisette. Every flaky bite will give you a flavor explosion. I am really grateful to the people I work with for their infinite patience with my experiments in the kitchen :) Many many more to follow!
SOoO-this right here is me at the end of a 30 minute workout doing a BONUS exercise <> you see, I am supposed to hold up for ten seconds, down for a quick three second rest, and back up for another ten second hold and so on for sixty-seconds. I DID NOT TAKE THOSE THREE SECOND BREAKS, I just held myself up the whole time instead. You may be thinking, OK 🤷🏻♀️ so what? WELL, lemme tell you what! When I first started this journey, I couldn't do a plank let alone hold one for a solid minute. Something that seems small like this, is TRULY a big personal victory for me! Especially if you remember this was at the END of my workout! So much can change in 21 days, for me I lost 11.5 pounds and gained a shit ton of confidence! 💪🏼💕💁🏻❤️ let's talk about YOUR goals and how I can help you accomplish small victories within your own life that add up to BiG RESULTS!! #transformation#plank#planking#smallvictories#gettingstronger#workingonmyself#followmyjourney#inspo#weightlossjourney#weightlosstransformation#momswhoworkout
My first ever “fitness” video 💁🏼🤦🏼♀️ it’s nothing to most and I’m probably judged for even sharing this but hell I am so proud of myself and I just watch this over & over again because it reminds me that I’m reaching the small goals I make for myself in the gym a lot faster than I ever thought I could. Watching this is the raw proof to myself of my physical strength. After this day of hitting my 70lb goal (with the close guidance of my boyfriend) we decided to test out the ol’ one Rep max and I hit 85lbs!! I just want to be able to throw some 25’s up there!!! 😄 .
Was so happy to be feeling semi decent today, that I celebrated by getting pretty and going out by myself(and a small photo shoot in car too)... Never been so happy to run errands 😹#rareoccurance#smallvictories
Well, I haven't gone to the gym in 6 days since this guy got sick... hopefully he will feel better very soon... but now I have what ever he has..... we still pushed through 4 miles! Literally! #smallvictories#conqueringthiscold
Small things can bring great joy!
I am besides myself tonight because I got the biggest surprise in a LONG time today when Emelie came home from school and showed me her lunch box - EVERY single thing I put in there this morning was GONE and eaten!! For those who don't know, lunches have been our biggest challenge with Emelie since school started. Meals in general have always been a challenge since she was a baby. Until today, she has always come home with her lunch half eaten.
Life is good 😀
Kuh-loo-stee-yunz. I don't think the photos do justice to what a maze of a store this is. It's absolutely fantastic! The diversity of spices is incredible! I went here at the suggestion of @turshen (in her book #smallvictories ) and my two cookbook clubs #f52cookbookclub and cmb. Loved every minute of it! To top if off I accidentally met Dona, the operations manager, when I was standing in the middle of the store and exclaimed (probably scared her!), I love this place! I'm so glad I came! We had a great conversation. She told me the history of the store, showed me which section was original (1944, I believe, Armenian owners), which sections were added on, incredible history. You can order online at www.kalustyans.com and I believe I shall!
I went outside:
1) Because I'm cute 💁🏾😂 (encourage yourself)
2) Because this shirt was TIGHT and a struggle to get on a few weeks ago. 🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁 I wanted to take this picture to show that progress...instead, I was instantly drawn to my arms. Initially I felt so terrible because they are still "big". I SHUT those thoughts down and started to stay focused on the praise at hand! We CANNOT SPOT reduce weight loss! In your journey, be mindful to be grateful about where you come from, where you ARE, and where you are going. This journey has been s struggle for me. It comes with high moments and very low ones but all in all I am learning how important consistency is! Stay encouraged & stop comparing 👊🏾👊🏾👊🏾
