//ONE MONTH// One month down of my newest phase of low-carb, high-protein, high-fat dieting and consistent exercise+weights. Start: 143lb Current: 128lb This is not a before and after, it’s more of a before and now, since I have no intentions of stopping here. Now that Ive reached my initial fat loss goal, I’m ready for the muscle gains 💪🏼. I’m proud that even though I slipped and had one really intense binge day, I didn’t let it stop all of my progress like I have in the past. I ignored the scale for a few days while I got back on track, and continued on the journey. When you mess up, keep moving. It will be okay.
In the world of fitness, dieting and #motivationmondays, it’s safe to say that we could all use a dose of body positivity when it comes to working out. Social media is full of so many perfect-looking bodies; it can be easy to get discouraged if your body type doesn’t seem to fit the norm. So how do we get healthy while battling our own negative body image and the trap of comparison?

“It’s been really, really fun to hear everyone’s response,” Kira tells Justine. “I’m just trying to be honest on [my account]. I’m not a fitness god; I’m not perfect; I had a whole box of Girl Scout cookies the other day. It happens. So I’m just trying to be as open as I can about it and kind of showing people that it’s ok to aim to be really healthy and also allow yourself to fail.”
