Haven’t felt my #workouts to be IG worthy, but have been very proud of my consistency. I finally achieved 7 days of workouts last week which included getting up at 5:00AM AND working out while on vacation! Even though my burns haven’t been as high as usual, I now weigh less than I did before I left for vacation! Tonight completes 12 workouts in 17 days! I plan on attending #tiertime for the next few days so get ready to see some high burns! #Selfie #natural #naturalhair #hair #natural #igdaily #instagood #latergram #healthy #health #healthyliving #exercise #fitfam #fitness #weightloss #afro #weightlifting

Online Hotel Photos vs Reality of Hotel Gym: 1 Mel:0. Forget Hot #Yoga, you gotta try Hot Treadmill! :p (I’m complaining but still very #grateful for my good #health, my amazing body, and access to a #gym although a sweltering one lol)

My #workouts so far for September. (Top) Wednesday, Thursday #Tiertime, Saturday #Tiertime, Sunday, and Today #Tiertime! Can you see why I’m tired?! Figured I’d attend my last class before I’m on the road working out solo starting tomorrow. #gym #weightloss #weightlifting #selfie #natural #naturalhair #exercise #healthyliving #health #fitfam #fitness

And I too know this pain! Experienced it last night and looking forward to it tomorrow morning at 10AM! From @sarah_morriss: That moment you want to cry because of her. #tiertime #fitness #fitfam #gym #exercise #instafit #instagood #repost #healthyliving #weightloss

Starting a whole foods #cleanse on this beautiful #LaborDay! Beginning with some delicious #juice! #nutrition #cleaneating #healthyliving #health #igdaily #instagood #healthyliving #health #vegetarian #vegan #juicing

Finally! A Sunday #workout even though I am very sore from this week’s #exercises! Must be doing something right! :) #latergram #igdaily #instagood #instafit #selfie #naturalhair #afro #natural #hair #gym #healthyliving #health #weightloss #weightlifting

Seriously, if I had known they were going to issue an actual card instead of just having a photo on file, I would have totally worn makeup and had cute #hair. However, excited one of my New Years Resolutions is accomplished! Now, who wants to join me at the shooting range??? #naturalhair #natural #nomakeup #gun #guns #igdaily #latergram #goals #instagood
