The last month I have absolutely failed at my job. 🙈 Thankfully it’s a job I can’t be fired from 😞😩 but if you don’t do it, like your obviously not gonna get paid.🤷🏻♀️ It’s not secret that I’ve been battling postpartum depression. I decided to take my health into my own hands and get try to get off my meds. Well, that clearly didn’t work🙄 it’s honestly one of the weirdest feelings. It’s not something I’ve ever felt prior to having my son. You feel empty even though you are loved. You have no energy even though you know you have a million things to do. You can’t smile even though you want to. You cant have a normal conversation even when you try your hardest. It’s hard on you and even harder on the people around you.
TBH, I love what I do and I don’t even do it for the money. I do it because it gives me a goal to look forward to in more ways than one, so why would I let something get in the way of that?! I didn’t have a choice when I got off of my meds. I need to realize it’s okay to take my medication to make me laugh, to give me the energy I need, to love my kids and husband the way they deserve to be loved.
It’s no longer just about me and I don’t have to let postpartum depression control my life. I need to realize it’s okay to take care of myself.

Hii to all my new followers! I've been getting a lot of messages about flexibility and nutrition. I have two e-books available on my website that goes through both. The link is in my bio (www.asapyogi.com/shop). Please feel free to message or email me if you have questions about them. I created them to share all of the knowledge I've gained with all of you. I'm also a masters student studying Exercise Physiology, so this isn't just a hobby..it's my career. I hope you all enjoy!
When I was overweight, I was always playing around with hairstyles because my hair was the only thing about my appearance that I could control. Now, I’m enjoying going longer and lighter! #weightlossjourney#weightwatchers#facetoface#ww
It’s a common misconception that when your eating healthy you need to eat very little... it’s about what foods your eating and about burning more calories then you are consuming to loose weight. I can tell you now I feel like I definitely eat more now then when I did eating junk food. #weightlossjourney
Quick post on supplements: Should you use supplements? Why? When? Here’s my humble opinion. .
As someone who is affiliated with a supplement company I still want to ensure people are educated on the topic. .
My answer is clearly yes you should because when coupled with a good training program and diet they will increase results when bought from a high quality brand like @1stphorm and others. .
When is another question - I would love for everyone to buy all the shops possible with my link but here’s the deal, that won’t get you the results you want. Sorry you got to do the work. .
I recommend, especially if on a budget, to start small. Everyone wants the fat burners, glucose support, etc., etc. .
But the reality of it is if your new to fitness you need to really focus solely on health and improving your ability to workout and form new habits. .
So I recommend people start with a multi vitamin and some fish, then you need protein theses will yield immediate benefits by incorporating into your daily routine. .
Next I think in today’s high paced, high demand world I am a huge proponent of pre workouts yet again they will give you the energy needed to actually get to the gym (which that’s the whole point). You can have the best post workout stacks, and fat burners but if your not in the gym it’s all for nothing. .
As far as fat burners personally I recommend people lose a good portion (10-20%) before using, this is just to ensure your in a good habit and routine and will get the most of your fat burners. .

Enjoyed listening to @drjasonfung 's book The Obesity Code while I did a super fast paced 5km walk this morning. It was crazy windy but having such a brilliant book to listen to made it a lot easier. I don't listen or read many books but this one is definitely one to put on your list to read and debunks so many eating and exercising myths that we've grown up being told and explains how the truths have been twisted over the years.
'Dangerous visceral fat loss is almost twice as good with intermittent fasting as opposed to calorie reduction. There is almost 6 times the amount of fat loss using fasting. ' Dr Jason Fung

An axcrixt on Wednesday because I’m saving it for tomorrow hells yus vegan food truck day. I still don’t believe in cheat days or cheat meals because fuck that, make good lifestyle choices most of the time then who the hell cares if you have something not so healthy sometimes or wtfe.
‘Tis what I wore out of the house today. I like these pants but I still have trouble keeping them up 🤷♀️ guess belts or suspenders are just a part of life.
Not lookin too bad in my giant specs. I want to practice vintage hair and decide how much time I’m willing to invest in my appearance because it’s been set at about 0-5 minutes for 98% of my life. We’ll see.
Back on that guym ish tomorrow!
Day 35/80: Total Body Core 🔥 This one makes you SWEAT but I did SO much better this week than last and I attribute much of that to my mindset. Last week I was feeling down and defeated but this week I’m determined to celebrate the small successes! Another day down, a little bit stronger 🎉
