#Workouts from Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Monday. I have definitely been squeezing in my workouts versus making them a priority. And although I have been having trouble with my app (while in the States) and limited access to Internet (while in #Europe), I have completely neglected tracking my #weightwatchers points! There is truly no excuse. However, I am enjoying the Netherlands, the people, learning Dutch, and the foooooooood!!! It really helps that I have awesome coworkers that enjoy eating as much as I do. ^_^ #hair #natural #instafit #gym #instagood #latergram #weightloss #weightlifting #igdaily #selfie #afro #exercise #amsterdam #nomakeup #accountability #motivation #workout

I <3 Fall (and my #fro)!! #naturalhair #natural #selfie #latergram #igdaily #instagood #health #hair #healthy #healthyliving #teamnatural #afro

Did 19 pushups today and some ab exercises (15 min). Pretty much today I did not #workout. However, I plan on exercising in the morning since Thursday I’ll be traveling in the evening. Will some of my #tiertime #friends help out my playlist?? I need to add more songs so I can enjoy @tierelera routines while #traveling. Help ya girl out @jaworkit, @angelavogelpohl, @kdgrogan21, @mscgray, and @mgares7!!! And I went over my points but consumed less today compared to yesterday. Trying to get that number under 30! Daily allowance is 26. #ww #igdaily #instagood #fitfam #fitness #weightwatchers #weightlifting #weightloss #healthy #nutrition #healthyliving #health #natural

Leaving for Amsterdam and Rotterdam, Netherlands on SATURDAY!!! I will update and post as many photos as possible! I will definitely post tons of photos when I return!! #travel #igdaily #instagood #latergram #europe #amsterdam

I am in need of some additional #accountability. I get frustrated for not getting back to my #weightwatchers #goal of 149 and think uuhhh I am tracking my points, exercising a ton, cleaning up my diet, and STILL I am sitting around 160 lbs! Well, yesterday and today are prime examples that PORTIONS are important too! I am supposed to just have 26 points/day! So, I am going to start posting my #ww tracker details. I think it will encourage me to stay within my target. Tonight I did some #tiertime routines, walked, leg exercises, and 10 min of #yoga. #igdaily #fitness #weightloss #healthyliving #healthy #natural #nutrition #latergram #exercise #gym #instagood #fitfam #motivation

It’s been a rough few days. To name one example, my phone crashed so I had to restore it to the factory version. So if I haven’t texted you in a while, then text me so I can have your number! Didn’t feel like exercising today AT ALL, but I swear it is the ultimate mood lifter. Make time for it! You won’t regret it!! #motivation #latergram #quotes #goals #healthyliving #healthy #natural #fitfam #fitness #exercise #gym #instagood #igdaily #weightloss #weightlifting

My #workouts from last Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and tonight. I have started adding #yoga to my #workout routine which was the lowest calorie burn but is a major challenge for me. Tonight, I did 20 minutes of yoga on top of my workout. Ideally, I want to do yoga daily. Also, did 18 pushups tonight! Working up to 25, then I’ll hold there for a while until it is daily and not so difficult! #goals #exercise #igdaily #fitness #fitfam #healthyliving #selfie #nomakeup #afro #naturalhair #hair #natural #instafit #gym #instagood #latergram #weightloss #weightlifting

#Workouts from Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday. My starting point with my arms. I wanna get cut!! Starting with pushups regularly in addition to my regular #exercises. Tips are welcome! #fitness #fitfam #exercise #healthyliving #health #Weightlifting #weightloss #igdaily #instafit #instagood #nutrition

Survival of the fittest!! We made it through #tiertime!! @angelavogelpohl thanks for helping me to keep going! And to the other regulars not shown (@kdgrogan21 and @mgares7) you ladies #motivate me to give it my all! I thought I had a bad day… After my #workout: What bad day? AND I need to correct myself. I worked out last month 23/30 days! I can’t short myself a hard earned workout! #exercise #selfie #friends #healthyliving #health #workouts #gym #weightloss #weightlifting #latergram #igdaily #instafit #instagood #naturalhair #hair #natural

While stopping to smell the roses, I met this little guy. #nature #latergram #igdaily #instagood #happy

My last #workout in September! I worked out 22/30 days this month! Definitely aiming for more next month, but I am so proud of myself for increasing my workouts! My goal for October is to add more #yoga to my #workouts! What are your goals for October??? Let’s #motivate each other!! #exercise #gym #selfie #naturalhair #hair #natural #healthyliving #health #Weightlifting #weightloss #igdaily #instafit #instagood #latergram

Be prepared to see wedding weekend photos!! This one shows the before and after shots for makeup! #nofilter #nomakeup #mua #naturalhair #natural #hair #wedding #latergram #igdaily #instagood

I guess all that cake and alcohol from this wedding weekend came to haunt me in my #workout today because I swear I barely made it through. I was late but still burned this much at #tiertime. Happy I made it to the #gym and through class without meeting my maker!! #fitness #fitfam #selfie #motivation #naturalhair #natural #hair #healthyliving #health #exercise #latergram #igdaily #instagood #instafit

My #workouts from Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday which included a hotel room twerkout, #tiertime, and another out of town workout due to a wedding I was in on Saturday. Note to self: Do not get a #henna #tattoo before working out. #fitness #fitfam #exercise #healthyliving #health #natural #hair #naturalhair #weightloss #Weightlifting #latergram #instagood #instafit #igdaily
