#transformationtuesday 🎉🎊 This has been a lifelong journey and I know I will continue on this journey for the rest of my life! Some people may look at that time as daunting, but I look at it as freeing! No, I cannot just eat whatever I want and lose weight, I cant skip the gym and expect to keep my strength, and I cant let my mind pretend like I don’t have an eating disorder called binge eating. But, they are all things I CAN control! I can choose what goes into my mouth regardless of what my brain wants me to believe! I can go to the gym and make it fit my schedule, and I can acknowledge that I am working through my own issues every day so that I can be the best person I can be. It isn’t easy. I have fallen. I have gotten back up to try another day. I am not successful because I’ve never failed. I’m successful because no matter how many times I’ve failed, I’ve gotten back up, learned from my mistakes, and tried again. I am free because I have come to terms with my problems and I know my triggers. I know what to avoid and what to dive into! I am aware that it will not be easy, but my goodness it is so worth it. I remember my lowest points. It was the worst experience of my life. Knowing I have the CHOICE to never live like that again makes every decision I make easier. The decision to get back up after I fall, the decision to make my own dessert for thanksgiving, the decision to get up early and go to the gym, it’s all easier because I never want to hurt that much again. This journey may be hard, but nowhere near as hard as it was to live with myself in a binge eating cycle, depressed, and hating myself. Now I may not love every moment, but I’ll love myself every moment ❤️ •
I feel like the past 3 months have been my best months this year. I really tackled my eating, changed my mindset, and I’ve made great progress on the scale but more importantly my body has been doing its thing! Haha I still can’t believe this is me. I think I say that every time but I can’t. It’s so rewarding to see my hard work paying off I never never thought I could get this far. Believe in yourself and take it day by day you can soo do this! Happy transformation Tuesday!!!
How many ways can you have an avocado? Ummm... well here’s one!
I baked it with an egg, then sprinkled some salt, bacon bits, and pepper. The taste reminded me of Chinese egg tarts oddly enough. Eating a warm avocado was also a first for me!
Getting good at keto is more about learning how to use the same foods in various ways rather than using a ton of different foods. This is especially important for keto because there are not many foods that fit the high fat, moderate protein, and low carb profile.
My thanksgiving groceries! Most things I have for thanksgiving just needed those “specialty” items that you only get during this time of the year (cough, cough cranberries) I’ve never made my own cranberry sauce so this should be fun! #KetoThanksgiving
I can read this over and over again and still fall in love with it 💜 Be a flower. No matter how much you feel pain, no matter how hard it hits, give off that positive vibe. Exude grace. This is a lesson I’ve learned over time. And it’s a hard lesson to learn. But life happens and life goes on. It’s easier to go on too once you forgive✌🏽
*I made fathead crust pizza tonight!
Finally got parchment paper so it turned out great 😝
It's not a very pretty picture but the first half has tomato sauce, Pepperoni with olives.
The second had pesto Alfredo with bacon bits.
