Progress update. I’m now on day 55 of my 90 day journey, feeling more energized, more confident and stronger than ever!!! 😊💪 It has nothing to do with the scale and EVERYTHING to do with the positive changes I’ve made to improve my happiness. In exchange though, I’ve had a lot of angry people leave the community because they believed I was being a total hypocrite who hated my body – you know, apparently the only reason why one could possibly have goals on a journey like this. 🙄
Look you guys, my sole purpose in life is not to gain “followers” and hoard likes. (I also don’t like this word “follower” – it implies that the person can’t think for themselves.) My purpose is to live to my best potential while also teaching you guys things I learn along the way. Some people are going to be on board and some people are not. This journey really upset some people, but if I have to lose followers in exchange for being true to myself, so be it. In regards to you, my readers – I hope that you choose to live your life in a way that brings you genuine happiness. It’s better to have a smaller circle of friends who truly support you over a huge crew of “friends” who will judge you.
I want to share an email I got the other day…
First off, to this lovely person – I’m very proud of you for having the balls to own up to your actions, the maturity to apologize, and the mindfulness to reflect. So much respect for you! Secondly, I want to say thank you. THANK YOU for giving me clarity. Throughout all of the negativity surrounding my journey, there were many so moments when I began doubting myself and questioning my intentions. Your email helped me better understand what you and a lot of other POPsters are going through. Thirdly, I hope you are finding success on your own journey towards health!
Guys, I want you to know that when you set a goal that you truly believe in – go for it, no matter what anyone says. What’s important is that you are flexible in your approach and kind to yourself when things don’t work out how you want them to. Remember, this is a LIFESTYLE change – not a temporary thing, so everything you do, you’ve got to genuinely enjoy it, or else, it’s not going to last.
Fit Journal entry! Took a Popping class last night. Man guys, I’m struggling!! I really do not look cool when I pop. LOL. Maybe I will upload to IG Stories but DEF not the main feed. Do you wanna see it still??
32% carbs, 34% fat, 34% protein
Literally my fave lunch right now! Baked salmon with cauli rice and an avocado! Hot sauce and coconut aminos all over my rice. YUMMMMM. Sam tried it and said was good! So happy when my health food gets #SamApproved!
Post lunch, I had some Health-Ade Kombucha in Tropical punch. Love me some bubbly drinks.
19% carbs, 59% fat, 22% protein
For a lil pre dinner before dance class, I ate a couple cauliflower flatbreads with avo on top. This time, I just microwaved my flatbreads for 1 min (I don’t think I am supposed to) but they tasted good!
When I got home, I made some cilantro lime cauli rice with ground turkey, avocado, and sriracha. So simple but absolutely delish and filling!
For dessert, I dipped some fresh strawberries in my pumpkin pie hummus and OMG this combination was life!!! I cannot wait to have this again! It’s sweet and tangy all at once and I am LIVING for it!!!
I came in at 1,481 calories and 28% carbs (108g), 49% fat (84g), and 23% protein (90g). Doing better in the protein range but I need a bit more. After talking to the nurse practitioner who went over all my blood test results with me, he recommended for my goals that I eat 1 g of protein per lb of body weight. So – I’ll try to get around 125 g of protein a day. That is a lot compared to what I’ve been doing so I will def need to plan my meals a little more.
Also, I think I’ll have time to go over my blood test results most likely AFTER the big shoot on Friday. Lots to tell you about, so I want to take time to understand all of my results and formulate my ideal plan of attack!
