Missing the warm weather 🌸💕
Totd; Collagen ?
Collagen is a key component to maintaining healthy joints,skin and gut. Sometimes we get carried away thinking we need to supplement.
If we would take a reflect at our lifestyle and realize that we are consuming too many refined carbohydrates/sugars/inflammatory substances/poor sleep/over/under exercising, collagen deterioration is an easy fix.
So what is collagen? Collagen is protein made up of long chain amino acids. It’s the most abundant source of protein in our body.
You can find it in our bones,muscles,blood vessels, joints, skin, hair and digestive system.
Collagen is the main part of our connective tissue that help with the renewal of our skin cells.
When considering supplementing with collagen avoid using it topically as it is an end product is the body and does not do much with it topically. You would benefit taking in internally a lot more. ❤️🌸
Guys quick tip... exposure to unnecessary amounts of blue light especially after sunset can disrupt your sleep, which can lead to other problems. One way I personally avoid this issue is by setting up my phone to automatically switch to Night Shift at sunset which shifts the color of your display to the warmer end of the color spectrum after dark. This minimizes exposure to blue light after dark which can improves your sleep 😴. #fitguy#fitforlife#fitnessmotivation#fitnessislife#bluelight#nightshift
I bought this dress in size small and it was tight and now it fits nicely. Reward myself for completed 6 wks savage challenge.

I still grind. Good thing too, because I'm not sure when we'll ever dry out. Most precipitous winter I can recall, and I'm glad it hasn't all been snow! Still enjoying the new garage heater! Best investment we've made in awhile because it's an investment in our fitness. No excuses not to hit it every morning! And I mean HIIT it! There are a lot of great programs out there, but I'm still crushing, and crushing ON LIIFT 4. I'm back on Week 3 Chest & Triceps 50/50.
I see it
I like it
I want it
I got it

Trying to keep it real here people. Over the holidays my weight went up to 142. I was frustrated with myself because I had maintained 136-139 from the summer until about November. I’m excited to say that I’m about a month in to the OTF weight loss challenge and I’m at 137. I would love to be in the 120’s but I’m trying to focus on building lean muscle and lifting heavy while loosing fat hopefully lol. Your health and fitness is a life long journey people so never give up 💪🏽. I just wanted to update everyone on my current progress because you all keep me accountable 💜.

How often do you let little things get to you?
Something minor can happen and it sets off a chain reaction that spirals your thoughts out of control, you allow it to ruin your entire day.
You ALLOW it to ruin your day. Key word.
You can’t change what happened, the moment has passed, but what you can do is shift your mood.
Your perception of the situation is where the power is held.
I find myself stressing and obsessing over the most insignificant moments.
It can be overwhelming and draining, not to mention time consuming.
Your energy is better focused on things that light you up. Don’t sweat the small stuff. If it’s not going to matter in the future, it probably shouldn’t matter now.
DAY 48/66 UPDATE 🦈 #gymshark66
Imma be real with you... this is another throwback pic, I’m actually sitting here looking like a hot mess in sweatpants haha 🙃 per usual. But that’s besides the point, let’s get into this update!
The Gymshark 66 Challenge has proved to be just that, A CHALLENGE! Over the course of the last 48 days I have found myself at some points totally nailing it and others feeling like a total failure. But now I am realizing what constantly having my mind on my goals and habits has done - made me aware AF.
So now even on days that I don’t track my food, I have a habit of knowing what to eat and about how much of it, to stay in track with my goals. Instead of forcing myself to fill up my water and drink it, I want to and I don’t even think about it. When I grocery shop I have my whole week of meals in mind so I stay prepared to eat right throughout my week. It’s just become natural and doesn’t feel like I have to think about it to do those things! Goes to show that just having something on your mind for long enough can rebuild a habit of the way you think, which changes the things you do and are aware of.
Now another real moment... my goals of waking up early and going to bed early... 🤦🏻♀️ UGH. Just UGH. I perpetually stay up late which royally screws my goal to wake up early haha. Some moments I just want throw this goal out the window - but I’m no quitter!!! So I am accepting that this one will just take me more time. I’ll keep you posted.
How are your Gymshark 66 / New Years goals coming along? I’d love to hear about your journey and how things are going for you! LMK 👇🏼 in the comments!
Monday’s got a bad rep... but just by changing your focus you can make Monday a positive and productive day. ⠀
I like to write down my weekly goals on a Monday and hit the ground running. 🏃🏽♀️ ⠀
End the day with a yoga class to keep you calm and focussed for the week ahead 😁⠀
Catch me at @fringe.yoga Epping 6.30pm and yoga for Athletes 7.30pm 🖤🏃🏽♀️ ⠀
