Disclaimer: This will be kind of a long post 😬 After Spring break I had to get back on my grind. I didn't eat terribly during my break and I was still aware of what I was eating but, I did indulge just a tiny bit. I'm trying to develop a better relationship with food and tell myself that it's okay to indulge and treat myself once in a while and not restrict myself completely. I weighed myself today and I'm at 123.4 pounds (I was 135 two months ago and 152 last year) but I am NOT trying to go any lower than this but then again, it is just a number. I'll admit, I did way too much cardio in the beginning and my calorie deficit was way too low. But I've definitely learned (still am learning), and I am doing cardio way less now and I am definitely incorporating more strength/weight training than I did before. I've become more aware of my macronutrients, blood glucose levels, sodium intake, fluid intake, etc. I'm not where I want to be but I tell myself every day to continue to work hard, push myself, and trust the process 🙏 #update#fitness#fitnessmotivation#fitnessjourney#motivation#lovetheprocess#aerie#nike#tattoos

Monday’s for me are not usually the greatest but once I found out that @iskra would be on campus at the @aerie pop up shop, I nearly had a heart attack! Iskra is so inspiring and I admire her for spreading love for body positivity! She is literally amazing and I’m still in shock that I got to meet her!!MUCH LOVE 💚💚 #aeriereal#aerie
Oh if our bodies could talk!
What would they say?
Would they ask us about our dialogue for the day?
The adjectives we use to describe it all?
The stretch marks
How ugly and disgusting they are?
How offensive we'd sound!
But is that not what we say?
Convince me that you speak in another way!
If our bodies could talk,
I bet they would ask,
when will we start to love them
and not depending on some ass?
When will we button our jeans with the same tenderness we give?
Does it only get affection with another?
Their touch is quite addictive!
If our bodies could talk,
I bet they would cry.
Cry that we do not see how much they provide,
We do not seem care about how much they do,
Because all we can see is what we are not and who.
If my body could talk,
I would apologize!
Apologize for all the time spent wishing it away.
Apologize for the pinching, glaring, and huffing.
Apologize for rarely ever seeing it as satisfactory.
Apologize for being the most violent abuser.
Oh if our bodies could talk!
What would they say?
I think they would say,
When will we see them another way?
It’s been a hot minute since I’ve worked my quads and truth be told I’ve missed it. I think quads are equally as sexy as the glutey booty. So show them some love with this killer workout. Here are my quad favorites and my full workout. I did 4 sets of everything reps were 15, 12, 10, 8. Try increasing the weight each set. The leg extensions I did 5 with toes up, 5 with toes in, 5 with toes out for 4 Sets. #happymonday 💛
This past week was my spring break and even though I continued my workouts I feel like I kinda lost track just because I was off of a regular routine so I ate more than I usually should. Even though I didn’t gain any weight back I just don’t feel as great as I have been so I’m gonna try to get myself back on track this morning with week 6 legs and some cardio! BUT I ordered 2 pairs of jeans shorts from @americaneagle both in a size 14 (last summer I wore a size 16) and they both fit me great!!! Both pairs are just a teeny bit tight on my stomach but I think they look great on my legs!! (Which was my main concern). I’m super happy I decided to buy the 14 instead of 16 and now I can’t wait to see how they look when summer is actually here!!

Do Mondays have you down? Do you get anxious late Sunday night waiting for the week ahead? I can personally tell you that I use to hate Sunday evening /Monday mornings. The stress of a new week and the looming to do list was just too much. What changed for me was a few things. 1. shift in mindset. Looking forward to all my accomplishments and check marks. I love checking off a list. 2. Being realistic. Set only 5 items to do per day and don’t move to the next one until you’ve fully finished the first. 3 Prep on Sunday. Meal prep, house prep etc. it’s so true that a Sunday well spent brings a week of content. 4. Schedule you time. Workout and get moving. Go for evening walks or during lunch. Your brain functions so much better when your body has been moving. 5. Last and certainly not least is spending time with God. There is nothing as cleansing and refreshing as seeking him out and getting in the word. #graceupongrace#simplfiedplanner#jamigivesgrace#gracenotperfection#flatlay#aerie#adidas#mondaymotivation

after the past two nights of work, i needed a day to relax and clear my head. not only was i physically exhausted, but mentally i was too😅. some days, it just takes it right out of you. it’s important to take a step back and breathe when you’re feeling frustrated or overwhelmed. i’m feeling grateful 👏🏻 for this stress free day. here’s to preparing for tomorrow’s shift ✨
other accs: *post everyday* *daily updates* *hq pictures* *funny memes* *stunning edits* *actually offer some quality content*
me, once every full moon when I actually decide to post something: here, have a picture of baekhyun being the absolute light of my life.
Making the most of my Sunday evenings. 🖤 Writing out things for the week, prepped work outfits for the next two days, also packed up two gym outfits just in case I can squeeze in workouts during lunch, prepped lunches (including large bowls of fresh spinach that I will make myself eat haha) and snacks for work, and my laundry is in the dryer. I'm enjoying a mini champagne (Sophie tries to steal these from me every time), wearing the softest PJ pants, and snuggling with the pups (they already fell asleep). I'm going to finish a couple things on my phone, then wind down with some reading. My goal is 11pm bedtime and sadly it's been closer to 1am most nights. New schedule, so it's time to really buckle down with my bedtime. 😴 I scheduled in a lot of sleep this weekend and it felt amazing. My body and mind felt so much better. I think I got 10 hours of sleep Friday night!

Self-care isn’t always face masks and pedicures. Some days it’s just choosing to love yourself a little extra. Every single inch. From your head, down to your sand covered toes!❤️ Linked my swimmer ($35) and sunnies here: #firstname.lastname@example.org
UM Hi, just wanna give a formal introduction to anyone who is new here from Twitter(I see you 🙋🏾). I’m Ciara, born & raised in Houston, Texas. My goal is to inspire you to travel, and not just with pretty photos in far flung destinations. No. I don’t want to just show you photos of me traveling. I mean, I don’t mind haha we all like to do it for the ‘gram every once in a while, but nah, that’s not what this is about. Where’s the fun in that for you? My goal is to share with you actual information to help you plan your next adventure. My goal is to make you believe that travel is in your future if that’s what you desire, even if it’s years from now. My goal is to show you this world & the beauty it’s people possess, in contrast to all the negativity that’s dished out so often. My goal is to show you the magic that lies beyond your comfort zone. I write these long captions bc IG can be pretty surface level, so I try to give you a bit more information aside from just “poolside lounging 💁🏾” because travel is much deeper than that, at least for me. I have a lot of fun doing doing this :). I’m currently in Mexico, visiting places that aren’t as heavily advertised and can’t wait to share these stories with you all. Please say hiiiii! PS be sure to check out my blog FAQ for any pressing questions. I’ve probably answered them in detail there.
I’ll always try to share the resources that have allowed me to travel in hopes that they help you too! I booked this place with @hoteltonight and many of you said you’ve been able to save $$ with them last-minute. They sell unbooked hotels rooms at a heavily discounted rate. If you’d like to give it a try, here’s a code: CIJOHNSON23 .

1 bus. 1 taxi. 1 truck. 3 hours. This was the way to Hierve El Agua, a set of natural rock formations formed by calcified mineral water in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. It was a journey to say the least. I stood next to the driver on the first bus, asking him to tell me where I needed to get off. He did, of course. Then passed me off to a driver that could lead me to the right taxi colectivo. Then this driver led me to the next stop where drivers stood waving down those who wanted to visit the petfrified waterfalls. I was stuck waiting in the car with a young couple who made out for 1 hour plus and a woman I assume was their mom. When the driver got enough people in the car & after the mother yelled at him for taking so long, we finally headed up a windy desert mountain only for the car to breakdown midway. The driver joked that we would have to walk, but I wasn’t laughing then lol. With a look under the hood and some cranking, we were off and finally made it to Hierve El Agua. I can’t lie, I wasn’t impressed on first sight. I tried to be positive, but deep down, I was like “soooo, this is it?”. It wasn’t until I saw colombianos I’d met the day before and got into the water that I began to appreciate this natural landscape. We sat at the edge of this natural infinity pool overlooking the mountains and admiring the Stalactites. We stayed until sunset and it was absolutely magnificent up until we realized that no more trucks were going back down the mountain. Aside from a family, we were the only people left. If it wasn’t for them, we would have been stuck there. We had to let them know that we had no way down and the family didn’t hesitate to offer us a ride since they were also headed back to Oaxaca City. We were grateful, but still reluctant to hop into these strangers car. As soon as I got in, the young boy laid his head in my lap & I tried to piece together parts of the Spanish conversation that took place over the next 2 hours. My doubt diminished and I beamed with joy once we made it safely. What beautiful people. What a unique place. What an incredible adventure. Check IG Stories for more. Have you heard of Hierve El Agua? #aeriereal#aeriepartner
