First pic I was not as strict on my diet,( ugh I hate the word diet.lol) I was treating myself..which is okay!!But my goals have changed, a lot! I was at a plateau so second pic Is after I made some changes. I cleaned up my diet,lifting heavier, changed up my workout routine, which was very important because my body was so used to the same workouts with same weight!! I’m a little more strict with myself on meal prepping and eating clean.So no more eating out, giving in to those late night chocolate chip cookie cravings.I am in bulking phase right now.It’s actually going really really well and I am not missing the junk food.I can definitely see a growth in my arms. My mindset is different too.. such a nostalgic feeling looking at the first pic even though it was takin 5 months ago. I remember exactly how I was feeling that day. I wasn’t sad but I wasn’t really happy with myself either.. I wasn’t going anywhere with my fitness goals and that really bothered me.The great thing about this life is that we can always choose to change for the better. SO second pic is after changing my mindset ( and hair😂) and setting some new fitness goals.I am still learning, still growing and it’s only just the beginning.💕🙂 #grow #armgains #bulking #fitness #fitlife #health #lifestyle #growth #mind #body #soul #change #mealprep #inspo #work #consistent #fitnessgoals #flex
Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life.
Mental health is relevant at work because we spend so much of our time there! 😮 We bring our whole selves to work and sometimes we go through hard times and need extra support. We are, afterall, only human. Right? 🤔
Our Open Minds project provides videos and online resources for managers to provide practical tips to help with conversations about mental health in the workplace. 🙌🙌🙌
One example of a quick tip – it’s as easy as asking, “I noticed you’ve been quiet this week, you OK?” Everyone has mental health, so why not talk about it? To check out our free resource click the link in our bio. #worklifebalance #mindshift #mentalhealth
I ❤ #Chicago
Being a native Chicagoan I have seen all the changes being of course resisted but eventually seeing the benefits of #CHANGE
This city is still the place of the American dream but now that dream has changed from get a good job, get married, and buy a house to be happy with what you do, support each other in the community, and never settle! Thank you Day Retreaters for #selfcaresaturday
I was reminded that I'm happy with what I DO! I provide a service like no other...I teach #yoga
and that practice is the ultimate challenge..you can never settle cause your body will not allow it🙏🏾 Happy Sunday evening. Rest up and speak soon #yogacommunity #blackyogi #mythoughtsexactly #gypsyyoga
So fat, yet stronger than I’ve ever been. Bring on NC Strongest Man. 6 Weeks.
It’s binary. Do or don’t. Yes or no. Break away from your typical mindset or education and pursue your purpose. If you don’t know what it is then finding out is the first step. Just do
Being at an all inclusive resort doesn't mean you have to eat (and over eat) heavy foods! My body actually prefers lighter meals like salads but more often. And after almost a year of better nutrition, my body knows when it's full a lot faster so I don't over eat anymore.
Training your stomach and body to eat what it wants is one if the hardest parts about changing your lifestyle. It typically means eating "less" because most of us are used to large portions of food that don't keep is full for very long.
But after a while it gets easier! You just need to give it time!

I'm drinking out of a bowl and eating yummy Israeli food and this place is so cool and I'm with some of my favorites and I just booked a teeny acting gig and we should celebrate our wins (no matter how small) just as much as we sit in our losses because we’re always going to have wins and we're always going to have losses so why not embrace all the things. 📸: @hapahamburger
