I know I said there were many changes last week but THIS week my stomach has definitely changed on the surface. Let’s see the difference from the beginning to last week to this week, shall we?

Yes? No? My body is definitely getting tighter!! Workouts in my sports bra are also nicer to look at. You may laugh at that comment – I mean it is part of my journey. I have to audition in front of judges and with another instructor by my side in a sports bra! BUT I will not compare myself to someone else. I watched Bex, a fellow Fitfluential Ambassador’s latest video, and if you haven’t already, you should. One thing she said at the end really resonated with me:

“Be the best you that you can be, because that’s the only thing you can be the absolute best at” - Bex

Um wow – what a beautiful and empowering thing to say. Who else could be better at being you than…YOU! She went on to say that we need to support each other, there is no need for competition – be yourself and try your hardest to be the best version of yourself that you can and that’s what I’m doing! Thanks again Bex!

Workouts

Challenging. I upped the intensity this week (as I should). I’ve also improved on my push ups! I can bring that chest to the ground for much more reps than I previously did. I feel my muscles getting STRONGER and I can’t lie – it’s motivating me to keep.pushing.through.

Eats

Another week of clean eating :) No mindless snacking! Woohoo! Clean eating for the win!

How I feel

Strong, tight and confident – now that sounds wrong…but it’s truly how I feel. And on a side note, the Lululemon pants I’m wearing are the same size 6 I wore when I hit goal 3 years ago at 126 pounds. The only difference is that they are LOOSE on me! Seriously – none of my workout pants truly fit me anymore. It comes to show that the number on the scale doesn’t always say the whole story. I’ve never been this small and strong in my life! How’s that for a non-scale victory? 

Get Involved

I have a favour to ask of you and I hope you’ll help me out:) See the audition is in 4 weeks now and I’ll need to go get a new sports bra and pants or shorts for the occasion (obviously). So that’s when you come in, yes YOU, reading this post right now. One week prior to the audition I’ll show you pictures of different outfits and ask for you to vote on your favourite!! Sometimes, it’s nice to hear other people’s feedback and I thought it’d be a fun way to include you in my journey!

Let me know if you’re on board! Where should I shop? Any recommendations? 

Weeks Down: 5
Weeks to Go: 4

Much Love,
Jess

    You look amazing!! I’m so glad you liked what I had to say. That message has gotten me through a lot of times when I was feeling envious of other women’s successes. It’s so silly… I just need to rock out being me! And I totally pinned your cute sports bra. xo

    You’re in ridiculously good shape Jess! Definate difference. You have the whole, taut skin around the face that people get when they work out alot that always makes people look so healthy. It was inspiring that you lost the weight the first time round, but to do it the second time round, and in the healthiest possible way, is a whole other level of inspiration. Youve inspired me fo’ sure! Right, I’m off for a run!

  • Truly Jess

  • Truly Jess

  • Truly Jess
