Gestern hat die 3. Kur begonnen. 8 Kilo sind weg und es geht verhältnismäßig langsam voran🐢 Doch geht es mir jetzt schon wieder sooooo viel besser und ich bin richtig fit! Mein Ziel ist es ja bis Ostern richtig durch zu powern und abnehmen was geht! Ich hoffe es geht so weiter 💪🏼💪🏼
Haven't posted lately cause I've been on Daddy Duty!!
Everybody meet Kida! (Based off the movie Journey to Atlantis) She's a Blue Nose Pit Bull, very very cuddley, but very very sassy.
I'll be posting some more info graphs soon about the holidays!
TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY 🙌🏼 Not a photo one this time but my favourite. A numbers, graph filled, geeky one 🤓
I knew in my head that the 4 month plan I was on was not sustainable but it’s SO hard not to hate the scales creeping back up. No matter what anyone said!
So I went back to what I trust (facts and figures!) and thank god for @boditrax. In 4 months I am almost at the same weight BUT 📌 3kg ⬇️ fat mass
📌 3kg ⬆️ muscle
📌 5% ⬇️ body fat
📌 10 YEARS ⬇️ metabolic age
Now those are some impressive stats. Oh and I can almost do a pull up 💪🏼 #justsaying 💁🏻♀️ so Strength has gone through the roof!
So yes sometimes you need to be strict for a short term goal but you need to keep reminding yourself about the bigger picture and of how far you’ve come #progressnotperfection#transformationtuesday#boditrax
Reflection moment (literally!) I accidentally bought this shirt a size smaller than I wanted and didn’t realize it until I put it on. I was almost mad but realized it fits. It made me think. November has been tough... no November has been bad. We’re 20 days in and I haven’t lost a pound in fact I’m up 3 pounds this month.
You have no idea how disappointed I am. I have no excuse. I have not been focusing on fitness like I should. I’ve been eating fast food here and there, coffees, diet soda etc. The truth is weight loss is a lot of work. I haven’t been putting in the effort. Instead of 6 days in the gym I’m going 2 or 3. I buy food to meal prep and it goes bad in the fridge. I’ve been lazy there’s no way around it. I knew the holiday season would be hard but I thought I would do better.
I think after losing some weight already I’ve been in a “yay me!” phase starting to relax and take it easy. That’s the complete wrong mindset. It gets more difficult as you get closer to your goals which means I should be going harder than ever. I’ve been distracted. I wanted to open up here for a minute because so many of you have helped me along the way. When I started posting about my health on Instagram it changed the game. I’ve never felt more vulnerable and I know with honesty comes accountability. I also know I’m not alone. It’s not supposed to be easy and that’s what makes it worth it in the end ❤️
At home today topped up with antiflammatories as woke up the middle of the night with a sore neck, so stuck in bed but still wanted to do #transformationtuesday . The pic on the left is me from January 2017 weighing 126.1 kilos and the photo on the right was taken yesterday at 106.8 kilos. Amazing to think this progress is less then a 11 month time frame 😍
It's Tuesday and that means I've put together two pictures of myself where you can visually see the changes in my body but the transformation is so much more than the visual!
In 2014 we took 3 weeks to drive cross country from California to South Carolina & Virginia then back on our #TYRFarewellAmericaTour road trip before we moved to Japan.
We visited family, saw some AMAZING American sights, and ate. all. the. BBQ. I packed on something like 15lbs in that 3 week period of time on the way to what would be my heaviest later in the year.
The day the left picture was taken I was miserable, and not just because I was saying "see ya later" to Nan, but because my body was a busting can of biscuits! I drove about an hour before my feet couldn't take the pain & Gene had to take the wheel.
Even on a road trip I would squeeze myself into Spanx & I wore tons of scarves to try to hide my body. I was depressed, emotionally eating my way across The South, and was maybe the fattest person at PaleoFx that year where I heard @melissa_hartwig speak.
Cut to this year: today is day 30 of my THIRD round of Whole30. I hate that I waited so long to start, but I'll never stop! My relationship with food is getting so much better, I have so much energy, I only wear the Spanx under one or two dresses, my confidence and happiness are soaring, and I made soup with Kale in it. It was disgusting, but we tried it 😂😂😂And I didn't make my husband take a second or sixth picture of me- I'm comfortable with just one these days!
Dessert tonight! 🍫 🍰
DOUBLE CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN FUDGE CAKE 🍫[Recipe below]⤵️
Curtesy of Ledbetter! Ingredients:
15 grams egg whites (1 tablespoon)
8 grams natural cane sugar (2 teaspoons)
15 grams pumpkin puree (1 tablespoon)
1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cashew milk
1 tablespoon granulated stevia (or 1-2 stevia packets) “I use Truvia”
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
12 grams chocolate protein powder (a blend of casein and whey works best) “I use Herbalife24 Chocolate Formula 1!”
5 grams unsweetened cocoa powder (1 tablespoon)
15 grams white whole wheat flour (2 tablespoons)
5 grams mini chocolate chips (1 teaspoon)
1. In a bowl, whisk together first 7 ingredients, from egg whites to baking powder.
2. Add the cocoa and protein powder, and mix again.
3. Now mix in the flour until it is just combined. Over mixing will make the cake gummy.
4. Spray a small microwavable bowl with cooking spray, and add your batter.
5. Top with chocolate chips, and microwave for 1:00 - 1:15.
6. Allow to cool for a few minutes and enjoy! * Using a 100% whey protein in here will make it much drier, whey/casein protein powders will make it more moist. 😘

This post is mostly for myself & maybe for those who find themselves struggling how to start.
The differences in this photo: 1) the physical difference from December 2016 & November 2017. 2) my mental state.
I am by far my biggest critic and I find myself beating myself up mentally on a daily basis because I feel like my body isn’t changing fast enough. However, I forget how much I’ve put my body through and how much progress I’ve actually made since I started working out. I can’t believe I’ve gone from wearing XL to M in such a short amount of time, losing more than 50 lbs. Sometimes you just have to take a step back and acknowledge the training you’ve put yourself through and how proud you should be for challenging yourself to get over bad habits.
I’m still not anywhere near my fitness goals, but I ran four miles for the first time today and needed to take a moment to realize how far I’ve come from barely being able to run one mile in 15 minutes.
Take time to reward yourself and acknowledge the progress not only physically but mentally! Remember you are the only person placing a magnifying glass on yourself. Be proud and keep challenging yourself no matter how hard it is💪🏼🏋🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️
