And now for the biggest transformation I have ever done. Bare with me as it’s a long one. 4,382.91 hours in the making...(6 months) No lightener OR @olaplex was needed throughout this. Just pure determination and dedication.
Before starting my journey I was overweight. I constantly felt bloated and would try and camouflage my body with oversized clothing. XL, XXL... I had no filter with food.
It was a vicious cycle that took me a long time to get over. I wouldn’t know when to say ‘no thanks.’ In January this year, I took the whole month off. Clients would ask me “where you off too?” “What’s your plans?” I would reply “just taking time off and going to bed.” I didn’t want to tell anyone what I had planned to do.
I didn’t even tell my closest friends. I kept it quiet and attended a local gym for 1 hour a day. It’s very intimidating going into gyms especially when you see everyone’s amazing bodies. It was an enviroment I had never been in before. I would get on the treadmill and speed walk for an hour.
I could feel and see results almost instantly after changing my diet too. My friend Bonnie would ask me continuously to go to the gym with her. I would reply with “but I’m not getting married yet” and would simply refuse her. 😂
One day I attended a 45 minute intense work out. I had only just adjusted to going to the gym and I started feeling nervous again. Bonnie pushed me and we went to our first training session. I could not keep up! I was so unhealthy! My body went into shut down mode and I felt like I couldn’t move for a good week.
It’s been 6 months since I started classes at @f45_training_carolinesprings , 6-7 days a week. I have dropped 7 pant sizes to this date. I have built my confidence back within myself.
F45 has changed my life. JJ, Anthony, Melissa, Kristy on my early days and Matt: Thank you for helping me change my life. Pushing me to my limits and giving me push ups when I stop before the timer ends 🤬
I have lost a whopping 20 kilos till this date but the number doesn’t define me. We are all on our own journeys and cannot compare ourselves to the next. All that matters is I have gained my revenge body back. Now it’s your turn. Cya

Ode to Instafamous: A Poem
You travel the world
Oh somebody’s dime
Catch exotic fish
And post all of the time
Hashtags and photos
Got you a Traeger Grill
A free Yeti cooler
And a Cheeky Reel
Social media managers
Are obviously foolish
When they love these ladies
Who are fucking clueless
Well I hate to tell you
But that girl is a whore
I heard she’ll put out
For a free Tibor
Speaking of girls
I know some are legit
They actually catch fish
And don’t show their tits
The worst are the profiles
About fitness and fish
Posting pics of the gym
But they never catch shit
You say we are haters
But bro can you blame us
Because we earned our stripes
And you’re just...instafamous
"She believed she could fly so she did"
When I started working out several years back, when the people in the workout video jumped, I swayed side to side... Day 1 I was able to workout a total of 3 minutes at 375 lbs.
While I limit my jumps as I get my inflammation under control, I do go for it from time to time to step outside of modifications to challenge myself.
Now I feel like I can levitate!
