Day 20- Ballet will change your life :)

When I sat down to write my post for today, I thought about the struggles I have been through in the last year. I have taken some really hard knocks and I have stood back up and fought through. I feel so empowered by this life change and all of the support of my friends and family. You all are the reason I am going to succeed at this lifestyle change and I just wanted to say I love each and everyone of you. I can do this :) I will do this, and so can you. Please let me know what your goals are so that I can help support each of you as you have supported me. Well enough sappy stuff, let's get to the rundown for today... 

Breakfast: Chocolate Protein powder, small banana, tablespoon of peanut butter, a little ice and water, and a cup of coconut milk.
Lunch- Cabbage Salad with cucumbers, Avocado, chicken, and Raspberry Vinaigrette. I drank a ton of water today. At least a gallon, if not more. 

Had a handful of cashews and an apple a couple hours after lunch. I also had a skinny vanilla latte from starbucks before Barre tonight. Got my booty kicked by Jen for an entire hour. My legs are shaking, my calves are tense, and my arms are exhausted... aka it was a crazy good workout. 

 Sarah B. and I both agree that we are extremely sore and ready to rest our beat up bodies for a day. She even bought some Epsom salt... which I am wondering if I should invest in LOL.

Then it was grocery shopping time :) Got some really great healthy items to restock my healthy food supply... man I make some awesome food choices when I know what is good for me. Blueberries and Blackberries were on sale at Kings so I grabbed some of those and froze one package of my blueberries for shakes. I got lots of other things too, but I was really excited about my berries. 

Came home and had a handful of cashews, a string cheese, and some blackberries. Drank another tall glass of water too. Now it is time for bed because I am exhausted. Oh! I took some more pictures to see what kind of progress I have made. Sarah got to look at my before and now pictures and said she sees serious differences. I just couldn't have been more excited, I still have a long way to go, but it was nice to have someone else realize my hard work is paying off. Anyways, feel free to share your struggles, comments, and I am going to start posting my recipes and workout pics on other pages of my blog so be on the lookout for that!!!

Love yourself always,

  1. How do you like Barre? I've always wanted to do a ballet-inspired workout (probably because I've always wanted to do ballet, lol).

    1. Barre is an amazing workout :) I also am so in love with pole dancing, it combines strength and cardio and is just so empowering :) Ballet is a hard thing to do in itself, but a barre workout is super intense. It is awesome, I love finishing a workout at barre and just being soaked and tired and sore lol always sore. I would encourage you to try it for sure!!! Thanks for the follow!
