When it was time for me to go to lunch, there were no hamburgers left at the burger bar the drug rep had catered. This is what was left and I will say it was quite tasty. They thought I wanted more food. They even offered to go to McDonalds and buy me a Big Mac meal. I smiled and with ease said that what I had was plenty filling. I was content when I finished. Sometimes the cards you are dealt aren’t what you want or expected at the beginning, but you can always make them work for the game. #letsdothis
I always loved dancing with my Dad, but never thought that, (in this picture @kennesawstateuniversity my bachelor graduation) 2007 would ever be our last happy dance😥.
::This capture means a lot to me in the spectrum of my love one but also the #weightlosstransformation journey I am embarking on.
: ::**This beautiful golden #kente top and skirt outfit from #Ghana was specifically made to fit me at the time. I was, I would say size 6/7 and weighted ~150lb but was also very healthy and toned. An exceptional beautiful gift from my twin Untie. I never thought I would nor could ever fit into again. I had it tucked away until I recently tried it on and was in full tears🙏🏽😭**.

i did not count my macros all weekend due to my best friend’s birthday festivities, but today my abs are poppin’?!?! I’M HERE FOR IT. i just had the best back day I have had in a while also! it has been a decent Monday ☺️ are you someone who loves mondays or do you despise them?! I love them and view them as fresh starts. if you think negatively towards them, your day probably already will start off on the wrong foot. try to think positively and it can change the momentum for your whole week 😊
☀️I’m 11 Months Sober today!☀️ I truly can’t believe it! Before I answer two commonly asked questions about my sobriety, I want to fill you in on how I’ve been.
These past two weeks have been a STRUGGLE. I don’t know why but I’ve been craving alcohol so badly! I’ve been having a daily battle of “well it’s just one drink”//”it’ll be fun and I’ll feel more relaxed.” These thoughts and more have been persistent! And I just keep saying NO. because I know they're Lies. One drink Will lead to more. I will not feel relaxed, instead I’ll be extremely disappointed and in a worse spot then I am now. So I’m still holding on strong. Being almost at the 1 year mark has helped me too!
So here’s to of the most commonly asked questions I get about my sobriety:
1) Do you still have a sip here and there? Did you really have Zero alcohol these past 11 months?
◾️No, I did not have any sips or small drinks. I have to admit I’ve sniffed a few drinks lmao but that’s it. I’ve had ZERO alcohol.
2) How did you do it?
◾️I quit cold turkey. No weeing off or cutting down drinks. For me that’s not possible. I had to cut it out completely. For the first few months I didn’t step foot in a bar to avoid temptation. This sucks for me because my bf and I enjoy playing pool. So we cut that out for a bit. Also, I avoided social events and parties for a few months. Most all of the family and friends I hang out with drink. There’s always liquor around! So I stayed away until I felt I was strong enough to handle it.
Most importantly, I open up to my family, friends, and Instagram when I’m struggling. The encouragement I receive helps me remember what I am doing is Hard but not impossible. And that this temptation will pass!
I remember clearly the drunk nights, my horrible attitude, and regretful actions that took place because of my addiction to alcohol. I choose Sober Cirsty every day and I do Not regret that one bit.🥰 ❗️If you’ve fallen off the wagon, get back up. Forgive yourself and move on. Every Day is a Fresh Start! A New Opportunity to be the Best You❗️
Happy Monday Babes🖤

Our new favorite routine is drinking tea and reading at least 10 pages of a great book before bed. However some nights lately I’m so tired I can barely make it through ten 😂 🤷♀️...I’ll blame it on the third trimester 😝. When we’re extra ambitious, we tell each other the cool stuff we learned, which helps us cement it in our memory!.. okay, we did that once, but it’s a goal! ☺️🎯.
What’s your current favorite evening tea? Or your favorite pre-bedtime habit?
110lbs vs 140lbs☝🏼
2015➡️ Throw back to when i was 110lbs, i wanted to have abs soo bad but also to build some muscle mass. I was probably eathing around 1,000cals a day, i was doing cardio 4-5days a week in between 15-30min & i wasn’t pushing myself enough when i was doing weight lifting.
2019➡️ Now that i have learned alot about nutrition and fitness, i am eating around 2000+ calories a day, i treat myself anytime i want to, i’m doing minimal cardio maybe twice a week and i am pushing myself to lift some heavy weights! If you want to make gains, you gotta fuel your body enough in order to grow. I am not perfectly consistent with my diet but i have made some improvement in the past year or so.
Nutrition is 🔑 for muscle growth guys!
