A LOT has transpired this last week as my hard work and behind the scenes endeavors have been coming to fruition! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ I finished out one of my final prep weeks with solid changes & a renewed drive...thankfully! Gio nearly brought me to tears as he let me realize that all I do is noticed, that I AM setting a good example for my two boys. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ I announced that I am now a VERY excited, and proud, new business owner of @phigmentbrowbar ๐Ÿ˜Ž. I also officially became a Bank Officer, at my second home, CFNB ๐Ÿ’œ-Branch Operations Manager.  Work hard, be kind to others, remain patient, stay consistent & most of all continue being honest, and show up! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ #toughtimesdontlast #toughpeopledo #thestruggle #itsworthit #keeppushing #striveforgreatness #success #browsonfleek #phibrows #businessowner #entrepreneur #goals #life #bestself #neversettle #motivation #momlife #workflow #instagood #weightloss #fitness #proud #selflove #happy #grateful #friday #weekend #feels #girlswholift #microblading

Amen to that! And my body chose for me today. Slept through my alarm and missed my Group session today! ๐Ÿ˜– Not happy about that...but I made record time getting ready for the gym (even more of a hot mess than usual) so I'm getting in as much morning cardio as I can. No excuses! I can't do plyo at home since my left extensor digitorum brevis is bruised from my mud run on the weekend, and putting pressure on it is still painful. Plus hustling this AM will keep me from being at the gym tonight for 58 million hours! ๐Ÿ˜… #riseandgrind #dowhatyougottado #noexcuses #youcandoit #yourchoice #bestself #goals #gym #morning #mood #true #truth #lol #meme #sleep #awake #rest #fitness #momlife #workflow #thursday #instagood #igdaily #motivation #weightloss #digdeep

Although I am NO WHERE as lean as I want to be, or should be (my fault) I am freaking proud of the changes I have made in my improvement season and my #bikiniprep. I have made huge strides in arms, glutes and legs. Not only that, I have much more confidence. Yesterday's race was amazing!  I am crazy sore and swollen today. Allergies and the hard terrain have done a number on me but my stats make it ALL worth it! I came in #FIRSTPLACE in my age group, 9th as overall female and 50th OVERALL! That is flipping awesome! THIS is what I needed to push through the next 3 weeks and actually make the last 4 months of prep count! I will have ZERO excuses when sticking to my macros...none. It is ON! ๐Ÿ”ฅ#letsdothis #ivealreadywon #winning #winnerswin #loserslose #cantstopwontstop #determined #doingthisforme #worthit #goals #race #champion #1stplace #teamnutrabio #athlete #abs #momlife #mombody #fitfam #fitness #fitmom #girlswholift #weightloss #run #race #instagood #bodybuilding #sunday
