Little by little a little becomes a lot 🌼 β€’
It didn't hit me till this morning but today one of my dearest friends departs from her little college town to take on the world. You better be ready world cause she is going to hit you like a hurricane. I am so grateful for having met you (thanks @zachamartinez sorry I stole her) and for all the memories we have made and have yet to make. You have made me not only a stronger person in the short time I've known you, but a better one also. Seeing all you have accomplished and your drive to succeed in everything in life motivates me to want to do the same! I love you and will miss you dearly but I am so proud and I will definitely be seeing you soon for our foodie adventure πŸ’β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‹ Thanks for photo bombing too @zachamartinez

Today one of my favorite people and one of my best friends graduated with THREE degrees!!!! πŸ™ŒI know we only met a few months ago but it feels as if I have known you for a life time. I will cherish all the memories we have made and the ones we have yet to make! Although I am sad you are leaving me, I can not wait to see what else you accomplish in life and I’m sure I’ll be visiting you real soon. I am incredibly proud of you. Congratulations @lauren__castro πŸ’•

⚠️It may not be transformation Tuesday or throwback Thursday but let's get real for a minute⚠️ The photo on the left was from about five years ago, when I severely restricted what I ate and only focused on being the lowest weight possible. Every day I would wake up and the first thing I would do was weigh myself and pray that the number had gone down. If it hadn't or even if the number stayed the same, I would punish my body and not eat or exercise excessively. Because I had struggled with eating and being overweight my whole life, not eating was the only way I saw progress. I didn't understand that I was depriving my body during an essential growth period or that I was in fact slowly killing myself. I only saw the number and the inches shed off. 
Looking back now after years of progress not only through feeding my body the nutrients it needed but also through fitness (which has helped my mind, body, and soul) I wish I could go back and tell my younger self what I learned. That a few extra pounds on the scale doesn't mean anything; it could be excess water or just bloat. I am more than a number on a scale. Exercise is not punishment for eating, it is a blessing to be able to push my body. It is a blessing to be the best that I can be everyday. I am beautiful regardless of what I look like because we are all more than our looks, they do not define us. What we decide to accomplish every day, every week, and every year, is what defines us. 
If you read this far, I just want to take a moment and thank you. It is followers that makes this journey worth it πŸ’ͺ🏻 β€’

For once the lighting is on point πŸ‘»
Question: anyone else have extremely limited hip flexibility that makes some exercises difficult like squats 😒Any suggestions on how to fix that?

Do you ever wake up in the morning just determined to conquer the day? Well I did not wake up like that πŸ˜… quite the opposite. I was angry at myself because the mirror wasn’t reflecting what I wanted it to, all I could see was a bloated tummy and rolls. But I changed my mind set quickly, at that moment there was nothing I could do but stand up tall and make a plan of what goals I planned to crush this week. 
1.  Get through finals week
2. Start running again 
3. Be kind to myself 
Don’t forget good things come with time and hard work, so be kind to your body and mind and fuel it to attain the goals you desire. 
Side note: booty looking #thicc πŸ˜‚πŸ‘Œ _______________________________________________

It may be 30 degrees out and dropping but that won’t stop me from wearing my cut out Bebe sweats even if the wind freezes my patellas off πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ
Also who else refuses to give up iced coffee beverages in the winter πŸ‘‹ #me

Preparing for take off πŸ›©
That moment when your wings get so big they start to crunch your sports bra 😏 Feeling pretty hyped with the new PRs I've been accomplishing. I was staying pretty stagnant for awhile with what I could lift and it was frustrating! I wasn't feeling my workouts any more because I wasn't seeing progress. Well like they say to get somewhere you've never been before you have to do something you have never done before. So I increased the amount of reps and sets I was doing as well as uped my calorie intake and it helped tremendously. If you feel stuck don't give up just try changing something πŸ’ͺ🏻🧐 Side Note: them nerdy socks tho πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘Œ _______________________________________________
