Definitely sporting a fuller body lately 5’3 130- 135lbs, and 21% body fat. The last few months, I’ve been eating a lot more intuitively and a higher volume of food, however, I do slip up at times and eat junk. 🙂 I’m getting out of the habit of counting calories and macros as it’s causing me to place unwanted restriction through my diet.. . At the moment my goal is to focus on living an overall healthy lifestyle by:. eating more nutrient dense meals consistently, following a reasonable workout split, and finding more time daily to meditate and self reflect. . What I’ve learned in my fitness journey is that staying lean( around 14%- 17% body fat) can be a bit of a challenge. Focusing on eating for aesthetics doesn’t necessarily equate to a healthy diet or healthy lifestyle habits which can end up being unhealthy long term. Being in the fitness industry has a pressure to want to look leaner, “fitter”, and “better” all year around. For me I’m shifting my focus to what’s truly healthy and sustainable long term. There have been times I’ve lost motivation and joy in this lifestyle I have a lot of love, peace, and happiness for. . When setting fitness goals they should be realistic, retainable, and sustainable long term. Focus on how you feel in response to your training (are you completing and/ or following the majority of your workouts during the week?) and your diet (do you feel satisfied and satiated?). Working out and eating a healthy diet should be fun and should feel good, the moment you feel otherwise don’t hesitate to make adjustments. 💗 #blackgirlsrock  #blackgirlsfit  #blackgirlsrun  #blackgirlmagic  #blackbeauty

#tbt  to #shorthairdontcare  days circa 2015/16 and looking like a proper runner (thanks to the awesome eye of legendary photographer @robgreigphoto  ). Three years on, and my passion for running continues, via @flygirlcollective  and my own personal goals (*cough* The Abbot World Major Marathon series *cough*) - so I'm pleased to share I've been selected to join the @jaybirdsport  global ambassador team (because if there's anyone that loves tunes on the run, it's me - and I'm gonna be doing ALOT of running and training in the coming months 😅🏃🏿‍♀️✊🏾).

I missed my lunch workout because of a migraine. Then when walking this evening I saw flashing lights in my peripheral vision. I wasn’t sure if it was lightning or the start of a migraine aura.

Back at it! — I haven’t done any strength training since a couple weeks prior to M2B in May. Started “easing” back into things today.

Lashana Lynch While Daniel Craig is set to reprise his role as James Bond in the next film, the franchise is set for a shake-up, with reports claiming that black British actor Lashana Lynch has been cast as 007 – taking over Bond's secret agent number after his character leaves MI6. .#AAWIC  #aawic  . #blackgirlsrun  #blackgirls  #blackactressesofhollywood  #blackwomenmagic  #blackgirlsarelit  #blackgirlsmatter  #blackgirlstyle  #blackgirlsrocks  #blackgirlsslay  #blackactress  #blackactressesmatter  #blackwomenrock  #blackgirlslay  #blackgirlsrock  #blackactresses  #blackwomeninhollywood  #prilaga  #blackwomenart  #blackwomen  #blackgirlsmagic  #black  #blackgirlsrule  #blackactressesinhollywood  #blackwomenlead  #blackwomenarepoppin 

Keto👏🏾is👏🏾not👏🏾based👏🏾on👏🏾ingredients 👏🏾 . . . I hate “that’s not keto” or “is xyz keto?” When you look up the definition of ketosis or ketogenic diet, what does it say? The foods on the suggested food list are on there because they are mostly healthy fats and low carb...not because everything else is not okay. With that being said, I think whole foods are best and that’s what I usually eat but I’m not strict. That’s how I’m able to make this a lifestyle I can stick with. If you choose strict, dirty, or lazy that’s completely up to YOU. Are you crushing your goals? Are you feeling how you want to feel? That’s what matters! I’m being a dirty girl with some @susaliamx  tortillas cut up and fried in avocado oil with my cheesy chicken and cauliflower rice mix and a little pico de gallo on the side.

🌟Happy hump day babes, let’s talk about consistency and learning that it doesn’t matter how fast you go, as long as you don’t stop. 🌈 ⁣ ⁣ ⚡️This is by far the biggest lesson this journey has thought me, especially during my run training days. Either, I tend to lack patience and want to speed things up and often forget to slow down and listen to my body as it hits the pavement. This often leads to me quitting or being inconsistent in the long run. ⁣ ⁣ ⚡️It is okay to want to speed things up or slow down but as long as you’re doing what works for you, your body and it is sustainable in the long run. The important thing is that your learning, adjusting and moving forward.

A good mindful run today, keep my mind present and my running flow consistent. After not running on the road for over a week, it’s good to feel the energy that a good 5km can give.

Have been feeling super gross the last few days. Nauseous and dizzy. Took an extra rest day yesterday and got back to it this morning. These were struggle miles. Still feeling a bit unlike myself. Here’s hoping an Orangetheory class this afternoon full of rowing helps set me right again. 16 days until MMJ@ Red Rock, 27 days until Transrockies Run and 72 days until Yeti 100! Omg!

Let me tell y’all about @trainwithjaz...  SHE. IS. A. TERRORIST. She came locked and loaded with her weapons of ASS destruction and took me allllll the way out!!! She made me do 12 burpees for being late! 🤬After I did those sit-ups with that 30 lb kettlebell, I was SUPPOSED to be done. So, as I struggled to get off the ground, she got the wise idea to make me hold a bear crawl as if my abs weren’t already massacred! Where does she come up with these things? I’m telling y’all, my survival ain’t nothing but God’s handiwork! Because, somehow, I managed to get to the gym shortly thereafter and crank out 3 sloppy miles, and was able to stretch and foam roll all before folks break for their mid-morning snack! A sister is tired, but my day isn’t over. Work must be done! Gotta earn that 💵!!! Don’t ask me how I did those kettlebell swings. I’m still trying to figure that out! #midweekrun  #strengthtraining  #kettlebellswings  #haloexercise  #burpees  #mountain  climbers #deadlifts  #tricepsexercise  #bearcrawlholds  #trueperseverance  #coachneek  #rrcacertifiedcoach  #distancerunner  #fitfabandfocused  #blackgirlsrun  #blkrunners  #committedtoexcellence  #marinepark  #brooklyn  #flatbush  #jazzfitnyc  #pace4success  #trainwithjaz  #NeekRunsNYC  #NeekRunsTheChi  #marathontraining  #trusttheprocess  #comebackkid  #whatdoesntkillyoumakesyoustronger 

You asked and so I am answering finally! What I ate to lose 30 pounds in 2 months. Outside tracking everything with my @garminfitness  and running 3x a week, I gave up sugar and stress. Nutrition was huge adjustment so I made sure whatever I did was going to decrease stress about what I ate and was low in sugar. Mostly I stuck with @snapkitchen  if you didn’t know. 😁 Needless to say, if you want the details and some discounts make sure you check out my latest blog.

Regular exercise is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Whether you’re at the gym, riding bikes, dancing... your body needs it! It reduces the risks of heart disease, depression, and more!

5x1 miles repeats with goal pace of 7:55-8:05 with 1 min rest btwn reps. . . Didn’t know what to expect from this run because the humidity was at 98% by the time we started at 5:45. I decided for the run I would just take it one mile at a time. . . Felt great the first four reps. The last rep I had @fourbitrunner  be my rabbit to keep me on pace as I chased him down. Didn’t enjoy the uphill climb for the last half mile but got it done.💪🏾I also put the positive self talk to use which helped me also stay on pace. . .

Tidye Pickett | First Black woman to compete in the Olympic Games ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tidye Pickett was born on November 3, 1914 in Chicago, Illinois. Pickett began running as a young girl and became a track star Englewood High School. She met her coach John Brooks while competing in local meets. At 18 years old in 1932, Pickett qualified for the eight-woman American Olympic team for the 4 x 100-meter relay pool, 80-meter hurdles, and the broad jump. Tidye Pickett and Louise Stokes became the first Black women selected to compete in the Olympic Games. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pickett and Stokes suffered racial discrimination during their trip to Los Angeles for the Olympics. The women slept in an attic apartment away from their white team members and often ate by themselves. Pickett and Stoke were left out of the four-woman relay lineup that ran in the Olympics. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite this fact, Tidye Pickett continued to run. Her Chicago Park District team set an unofficial word record in the 4 x 110 yard relay in 1934 with Pickett running the opening leg. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1936, Pickett qualified for the 80-meter hurdles to compete in the Olympic Games in Berlin. This time, she made it to the semi-finals where she was injured. Thus, Tidye Pickett became the first Black woman to compete in the Olympic Games. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tidye Pickett attended Illinois State University during this time and went on to become an elementary school teacher then principal. The Phillips School (her married name) was renamed in her honor in 1980 upon her retirement. Tidye Pickett-Phillips died November 17, 1986. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *** I'm joining the @usnatarchives  #ArchivesHashtagParty  themed #19forthe19th , celebrating the 19th Amendment by highlighting amazing women in history! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #PlayLikeAGirl  #RightfullyHers  #FemaleAthlete  #SheGotGame  #WomenInSports  #TrackAndField  #LongJump  #Hurdles  #Olympics  #OlympicGames  #BlackGirlsRun  #RunGirlRun  #BlackHistory365  #ArchivesBlackHistory  #HiddenHerstory  #archivesboomin

🔑 HOW TO BE MORE CONSISTENT⁣ 🔑 ⁣ Last week, I asked you guys what your biggest struggle with health and fitness is and I got a resounding response, “CONSISTENCY”. ⁣ ⁣ So, I thought I’d address some of my tips to be more consistent on your health & fitness journey ⁣ ✅ PREPARE⁣ ⁣ When you have a plan there’s less of a chance that you’ll deviate from the plan. So aim to be as prepared as possible. Can you prep snacks to take with you on the go or leave an extra set of workout clothes in the car?⁣ ⁣ ✅ ELIMINATE TEMPTATION⁣ ⁣ Part of the reason we’re so inconsistent is because we expose ourselves to situations where we feel like we “just can’t say no”. Don’t keep a tub of cookies 🍪 in your house, suggest coffee instead of drinks 🍸 to catch up with a friend, drive straight to the gym 🏋🏿‍♂️ after work instead of going home to change. ⁣ ⁣ ✅ SCHEDULE IT⁣ ⁣ Get out your planner 📓 or google cal 🗓 and schedule the things you know you need to do. If you keep waiting until you feel like it for it to happen…guess what? It won’t. So make is a part of your schedule so it feels more official (and less optional). ⁣ ⁣ ✅ MAKE IT ENJOYABLE ⁣ ⁣ Our brains like pleasure 😀 So if you find something that brings you joy you’re pretty damn likely to be consistent with it. So find a workout you like, a meal you can’t wait to eat and a self-care routine you want to do everyday.⁣ ⁣ Is consistency your biggest struggle with health and fitness? If not, tell me what is! ⁣ • • • • #blackfitness  #blackfit  #blackfitnesswomen  #blackfitnesstoday  #blackfitnessnow  #blackfitnessmotivation  #blackgirlsslay  #browngirls  #browngirlmagic  #blackgirlslift  #blackgirlsrun  #melaninfit  #melaninfitness  #melaninfitspiration  #blackwellness  #blacklifestyle  #onlinehealthcoach  #healthcoaching  #lifestylecoaching  #lifestylecoach
