#newyearnewme ? 😂
I’m all for starting a new year with a positive attitude & goals but I can’t be the only one who doesn’t really get the whole new year thing?!😳
I feel like it indicates there’s a problem that needs to be changed & it’s actually quite negative (why it never lasts) If I’m serious about a goal why not just start today, not wait for the whole year to pass by so I can do it next jan🤔🤷🏼♀️
stop wasting time and get on with it💪🏼😘

Something I get asked a lot with regards to T1 is ‘did I gain weight post diagnosis’
I was 14 years old when I was diagnosed so to be honest, luckily at that point in my life, weight wasn’t something which was much of a concern to me, I danced and took part in sport my entire childhood and naturally I have a small frame.
Building up to being diagnosed I did loose a considerable amount of weight but as soon as I started insulin therapy I gained the weight I lost back. (At the time I didn’t notice the fluctuation but my family did)
This isn’t ‘insulin’ making me gain weight, the only reason I lost that initial weight was because my body wasn’t producing insulin therefor my body was running off fat.
As soon as treatment begins and your body begins to function normally again, in most cases you regain the weight you lost back.
Weight gain after diagnosis is normal but it’s not because artificial insulin causes it, it’s because your body is now able to store fat properly.
Loosing weight with T1 is possible, yes it’s more difficult because of hypos, hypers and general management of BG around training and nutrition BUT IT’S POSSIBLE!
This is something I really dial in with, with the girls that I coach!

Okay where the frick do I start. I’ve been so nervous to upload this. That “before” photo was taken in July 2018 on my trip to Europe (hello chubs cheeks). That “after” photo was taken today. I’ve been doing #PWR for 17 weeks now and, well, the evidence is quite damning (even with a knee injury that put me out of the leg game for a couple weeks). While this program has helped me to achieve my goals of fitness - the dedication I had to sticking to it and really implementing the lifestyle I wanted to live was what really helped me see these results. I’d stopped and started this program more times than I could count and what was different this time was that I was doing it for me. I was doing it because I wanted to be the best version of myself - for myself. 17 weeks of PWR and I’m not stopping any time soon. #pwrprogram#pwr#pwrprogress#transformationtuesday#transformation#sweat#bbgtransformation#fitnessmotivation
I was so close to not posting this video because I found it very unflattering of my body, but i decided these are the videos I should be sharing. I have rolls that you can see when I get in weird positions and I don’t care! I want you to see the real me! Side note @alexia_clark this move was killer and I loved it!

So most of you know I’ve been Intermittent fasting for about 2 years, but there is a lot I need to say about it. First, I really only started doing it because I don’t like eating first thing in the morning so it was a natural progression. I hated forcing down a whole meal at 7am just because I thought I was supposed to, so I stopped. I started adding the collagen peptides and some coconut or almond milk into my coffee to make sure I was getting more than just a shot of caffeine first thing. It gave me enough fuel to sustain until like 12 and still hit a workout. But that is NOT for everyone. Some people need to eat more of a full meal before a workout or before they get into their day. You have to listen to your body and know what works for you!! I typically “fast” for about 14-16hrs overnight and have my first team meal (breakfast) around 12pm. Some days I wake up and am like “I freaking NEED food rn!” And I eat. I’m not strict about it or restrictive because I trust my body to tell me what it needs and listen.
If you are wanting to try it out you’ve got to know it’s not the answer to all weight issues. It’s just not. It can help reduce your caloric intake because you’re not eating until you go to sleep and first thing in the morning... just less time to eat usually means slightly less food. So it can help as long as you’re sticking to a healthy balanced diet like the LSF Nutrition Plans. Plus, there are some great benefits that are associated with fasting. And honestly there are a million ways to do it so figure out what’s right for you! .
✨Blood levels of insulin drop during a fast time which helps increase fat burning
✨In can increase blood levels of growth hormone and higher levels can increase fat burning, improve muscle gains, and a bunch of other potential benefits
✨It gives your digestive system a break and allows your body to send energy to other places which can increase the cellular repair like removing waste from the cells and healing your body inside out.

When your coach wants you dead Pt. 2:
*My face at the end* 🌪
1 snatch pull
1 muscle snatch
1 no feet power snatch
1 squat snatch
1 drop snatch
These crazy complexes are very challenging mentally, you have to stay focused through the whole set with all these random movements AND watch your technique to do all of the reps well.
+ cardio, which is different and entertaining. ✌🏼
One thing I learned in 2018 was that you cannot. Out-train. A. Bad. Diet.
In the left pic I was just finishing up with college, finishing up 2 extremely stressful years. But I was active. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I lifted weights like crazy but I kept gaining weight (not all muscle lol). I had gained 25 lbs in one!!! Year. I put on a lot of strength but I was literally at the starting point I was 3 years ago except worse 🥵. I was really unhappy with my body and I was not feeling great about a lot of things.
Last summer I decided to do BBG and commit to 12 weeks of it, right up until my wedding. I lost about 15 lbs and felt really awesome, and looked great. Over fall, I quit BBG and went back to lifting and starting to eat whatever again lol. I love food, it’s my life. But then I was getting disappointed in the gym, I hurt my back and had to take some time off, then I stopped going all together and it was a chore to go. Then I picked up my BBG guide yet again and haven’t looked back. I’m on week 7 this week!!
I am starting to feel good about myself again and haven’t had a “bad body day” for a while. I have been eating food I enjoy and also fueling myself with veggies and healthy fats and protein. Overall I’m feeling a lot better about myself, my fitness levels, and where I’m going. Can’t wait to see what the next 7 weeks bring!! #bbgweek7#bbgprogress#bbg#bbg2019#sweatwithkayla#sweat#fitness
Sometimes everything’s not okay. You can’t shake it off, you’re not inspired, you don’t want to do the things that you know make you feel better.
Maybe you’re feeling anxiety, or maybe inadequate( that’s my usual). Maybe you think someone else could do it better so why bother.
It’s easier not to even try right?
These moments will come, sometimes they’re easier to shake off than others. Know that it’s SO okay - it’s pretty normal. But it’s also your stuff, a piece of yourself that you’re probably going to have to sit and try to work past - maybe you need some tools. That’s cool. There’s lots of those.
Maybe you need a friend, or maybe you need to be alone.
I just want you to know, that you can do absolutely anything and that no matter how you feel - you have the ability to work past it.

Hyperhidrosis (excess sweating) can be quite annoying and fustrating for some patients. One way to access axillary hyperhidrosis (underarm sweating) is the iodine-starch test. Iodine is placed on the axilla, then a thin layer of starch is applied on top. The presence of sweat will cause the mixture to turn dark blue/brown making the location of sweating visable. This way we can target the sweat glands and treat. Treatment options include: prescription antiperspirants, botox injections, oral medications or the miradry procedure. Call us for a consultation to review what treatment suits your needs.
