This quote got me through it. #striveforprogress #celebrateprogress #smallvictoriesAfter two weeks you feel it. I can feel my body changing and adapting to exercising again. Feeling stronger and have better endurance after just 8 workouts!Whenever I feel like it's taking too long to get fit (I've been running for two minutes, what else do you want from me?!), I remind myself that the only way out is through. There are no short cuts. There are no options but to #keepgoingPosted a photoPosted a photoSometimes I feel like I'll never get there. But I keep going because quitting won't speed up the process. #evetyworkoutcounts #striveforprogressHere's to four weeks working out!I walked after my leg workout and that seems to have prevented soreness but man are my legs fatigued! #striveforprogress #everyworkoutcounts #legday#dayafterlegday the walk after leg day did a lot of good...but it could only do so much.#persistence #everyworkoutcounts #striveforprogressKeep going, fitness friends!#itsworthitCookies were my weakness this last week. So here's a reminder to myselfFinally a third of the way through my first running program. Only 8 more runs to go! #striveforprogress #celebrateprogress #smallvictory #running #everyworkoutcountsPosted a photoHad my best run so far! Dare I say I actually enjoyed myself? I've come so far already! #celebrateprogress #striveforprogress#keepgoing #motivationIn case you need some #badassmotivation todaySometimes I get overwhelmed when I focus on losing weight. Refocusing on simply maintaining a healthy lifestyle helps. #healthy life #itsthejourneynotthedestination #wayoflife #lifestyle #focusBetter late than never #startingoveragain #forrealthistime #letsdothis#progress second Jillian Michaels workout today!Down one pound after my first week! #progress #onepoundatatime It's early, but at least I'm on track.Just had my hardest workout of the year - all cardio circuits - and it's not that the cardio was too hard for my body, it was too hard for my mind looking forward to improving my mind's tolerance of difficult things #progressnotperfection #itsyourmindyouhavetoconvinceExercising helps me manage my #depression and #anxiety.My goal is to be light enough and strong enough to get back into tumbling!Time will pass away!Using exercise to help treat my #anxiety and #depression, in addition to medication.First spin class in more than a year is today! Excited to get back into it I was a huge #spinning fan in college and remember how it really toned my legs and increased my endurancePosted a photoOnly two workouts away from a 21 day streak! My wife asked me to take a day off earlier this week and but I'm determined to make working out a habit.Cheers to my 21st day of working out! #21daystoformahabit #day21 #progress #healthyhabitsWhat's your why?
*note: #4 is a reference to a thing about non-patriarchal beauty standards reasons for losing weight. I thought it was hilarious, but also...who knows?Omg I did day two of CIZE and, despite being sore from yesterday, I actually made pretty significant improvements over yesterday! I'm so happy with this workout and my progress.Oof. Thank god for therapeutic yin yoga today and some rest! Now can someone please bring me lunch in bed? #sore #CIZE #helpmeimsoreWow! Look at that weekly total!Virtual demonstration for #JusticeforAhmaud today. Walked 2.23 miles for Ahmaud's birthday. #IRunWithAhmaud.Lost 4.5" in the last 3 weeks with #Cize!!! So excited ^.^#BeforeAndAfter #progressphoto #beachbodyondemand #CIZE #21dayfixrealtime#ProgressPhoto #Beachbodyondemand#mbf #muscleburnsfat #Beachbodyondemand#mbfa #muscleburnsfatadvanced #beachbodyondemand#MuscleBurnsFatAdvanced day 7 #DynamicRecovery! #MBFA kicks EVERYTHING up a few notches, even active recovery! Favorite move picturedSo pleased with my progress on my plank! Form has improved, 30 seconds is nothing now. The worst part was doing this after upper body day and my arms, chest, and shoulders were sore and tired lol. #MBFA #muscleburnsfatadvanced #beachbodyondemand #progressoverperfection #NSVWhen I started doing strength workouts in May 2020, I could only do 4-5 pushups at a time from knees and fought to hold a 30 second plank from my knees. Today, I did 12 non-modified pushups the first set of #MBFA #PowerIgniteAdvanced AND did FIVE 30 second non-modified planks!!! #NSVI have now broken 10lbs of weight loss!!! Things didn't really get moving until I came back to calorie tracking on SP. So grateful for SP calculating my calorie needs to help me safely, healthily, and realistically set and meet my goals! Now I owe myself a Zen as F*ck coloring book for breaking 10lbs!#MotivationMonday#TransformationTuesdayIdk. They can't all be winners. Just gonna call it a day, take something for sleep, and try again tomorrow.Feeling good about #graduationpictures today!From my fitness Instagram Phoenixfitness20.From my fitness Instagram phoenixfitness20. #keepgoing#keep going
Feel free to follow my fitness Instagram @phoenixfitness20.Created a #10Rounds and #MBF hybrid to start in a couple weeks once I'm done with Muscle Burns Fat Advanced! So excited to start it. #BeachbodyOndemandTook some time today to refocus and recommit to my fitness journey! It's been a rough few weeks and my mind and body told me this past week that I needed to take a rest, so I only managed 2 workouts and was very loose on my calories. But now I've taken some time to rest and am recommitting to my fitness journey! #keepgoing #ididntcomethisfartoonlycomethisfarI did not come this far to only come this far! #keepgoingLost a total of 13.2 lbs and 15" so far! #progressphoto#progresspics lost a total of 13.2 lbs and 15" so far!I'm shocked because it was a really rough month. Excited about these numbers! #august2020progress😂😂😂 crack myself upStill gonna push play tonight on #muscleburnsfatadvanced for core circuit advanced!Sporting my new "Strong is beautiful" tank from KG Designs 16 that I got myself as a reward for finishing a lifting program. Also sporting my new, slimmer hips and thighs ;)In May of this year i could only hold a plank for like 10-20 seconds. Last week I held FIVE 30 second planks in a single workout. Last night, I did SIXTY SECONDS of renegade rows! I didn't even know I could do a plank for a minute. And when I got tired, I RESTED *in my plank.* that's crazy to me. Only 4 months between not able to hold a plank for 30 seconds to renegade rows for a full minute. #beachbodyondemand #nsvIt's rest day!#progresspicture#Graduation2020 pics are in!!!!Took an unoffical #Progresspicture today because someone was asking for some pictures from people who have made improvements on an overhanging stomach and i am BLOWN AWAY by my progress! So excited. I feel like I'm becoming myself again.What are you doing today that makes you feel more like yourself?
So far I've done some recreational reading, but will also take a nap, shower, workout, and probably cuddle up to watch the last current episode of "The Boys." Possibly color some.Starting to really like what I see! Feeling and looking more like myself.I can now see the curve of the top of my ribs!Starting to see some definition in my arms!Did my first day of my #10Rounds and #MuscleBurnsFat hybrid today! Jabs and crosses from 10 Rounds. It was fun and burned major calories!Yay for sweater weather!100% participating in sweaters in tree morning and regret in the afternoon weather! Fall is my favorite!Woohooo! Guess who, as of today, has lost just over 15 lbs?! 15.4lbs, to be exact.It's #mywhywednesday for spirit week in my group with my Beachbody coach, so I made this to represent my why!#fiercefridayBeginning Monday, September 28th, there are only 95 days left in the year. I realized that if I stay focused, I could hit onederland or even smash it. Setting a goal of reaching onederland by 12.31.2020 to give some breathing room and created a page spread in my October journal to help me get there. #95daysoffocus #journeytoONEderlandPosted a photoToday brings an end to #suicidepreventionmonth, but it doesn't have to be the end of raising awareness, correcting myths, or helping others.Not every day is calorie-perfect. My dog's face when I won't share my pizza. 😂My reward for hitting 220 lbs! "Started from the bottom now I'm SLIGHTLY above the bottom." 😂😂😂"I Didn't Come This Far" SONG (as opposed to the motivational speech, which is also very good) is my motivation for the week. Highly recommend looking it up on YouTube.
#motivationmondayFirst visit to Sunset Rock!Yesterday's workout was a hike through a cavern to take a boat ride over an underground lake! It was stunning. #lostseaadventureMy bf and I lined up our days off and have spent the week relaxing, doing day trips, exploring new places, and spending quality time together. What we haven't done is stick to our workout routine or calorie goals. But that's okay! This is a journey. There will be ups and downs. There's no rush! We've been thoroughly enjoying our vacations and time together, as well as the extra calories. We've created some great memories. The workouts and calorie tracking will still be there next week.The towel now closes!! It's weird just how many things triggered my feeling uncomfortable or bad about my body. The towel not closing in the front was one of them. Not anymore! #nsvDay 1 of Beachbody's 21 Day Unstress meditation series is complete! Feeling so centered and balanced after mobility, yoga, and meditation today.Yoga socks for the win! Grippy enough to keep my from sliding around. Not so grippy it hurts my knees to pivot in them like in my sneakers. Very comfy!Posted a photoSuper excited about my PlumBand for stretching!!!It's #HispanicHeritageMonth! To learn more, we got authentic Colombian food for dinner and are watching movies set in Hispanic cultures.
#outofmycomfortzone #learningaboutothercultures #trynewthingsLast night I pushed myself to use 20lbs for shoulder presses. I managed to do the rows, the shoulder presses, and 2/4 of the combos before having to drop down to 15lbs. Proud of this progress and for pushing myself!
#pushyourselfSpotted this in the back yard this morning. Autumn makes me so happy!!Just under 2 weeks between pictures and I've already made so much progress! Mobility, yoga, and stretches!I can't believe it's been half a year already since I started taking control of my health. Not only is there a huge difference in how I look and what I weigh, but I feel so much happier, too. I'm more focused, feel more clear headed, energetic, and athletic!
This is just the beginning. We're not stopping now, people! We're taking this all the way.
#progressphoto #6monthprogressAs of yesterday morning, I have lost EXACTLY 20 lbs since 4/21/2020!

Hope this helps someone out there!First blog post is up!My meditation helper today!
Today's meditation was on feeling calm in the chaos and it's exactly what I needed.Just got in my waterfall incense burner from Zen Incense today and I'm in love! The smoke ripples down the statue and it's stunning.
The hand symbol here is called shuni mudra, which "symbolizes patience and discipline and helps us generate a feeling of stability." This is perfect for me as stability is my theme of the year for 2021!Had a very rough week last week with a severe depressive episode while my doctor's office fumbled a prescription for 4 days. Currently on the mend.
The best thing I have learned this year is self-compassion. Instead of overloading myself with to do lists, trying to jump right back to where I was pre-spiral, and berating myself for getting behind, I'm giving myself time to heal and only asking myself to do what I can without sweating the rest.New blog post is up! Today's topic is "The Catch It Low Method" for tackling emotional eating.
Be sure to check it out and share what you like to do that makes you feel calm or energized!Two months' progress!Continuing to progress in my journey!Hope everyone had a good new year!Not a bad day!Another solid day in the books! Feels so good to be on track towards my goals!#progressphoto
