Amazing the differences a little lighting can make! I have cellulite and I don't hide it. I know many Instagram or fitness gurus who will airbrush it all out, but I'm not one to hide the normalcy of my body. Why should you be ashamed of anything that's normal? 
I used to hate wearing shorts because I was so insecure. I mean, I wouldn't even buy them! But these days.. I wouldn't want my daughter to look down at her legs and frown while looking through social media at these perfect smooth-legged gals. So I rock my shorts not giving a flip who's judging me. I've got someone more important to me who looks up to my example. 
I've always had cellulite and I'm starting to believe that I always will have it. But I'm learning to just accept it as part of who I am. I'll tell you what though, I have improved my cellulite a great deal when I cut down on alcohol, started massaging my thighs, and upping my cardio sessions. But it's still there! However I don't think we were meant to stress out or lose sleep over a few (or a lot) of dimples. They don't define us. Not one bit. 
Even the strongest and the skinniest women have cellulite. It doesn't discriminate. 
So go ahead and rock it. Own it. Wear the damn shorts! Love your body when the world is giving you a million reasons not to. Your self esteem starts with you!

Hold my pizza real quick πŸ• let me tell you a little background on me. i was once so obsessed with being healthy that i wouldn't have any cheat meals. 🀐 zilch. nada. none. i had lost 50lbs and i was so afraid of gaining it all back. i deprived myself of specific foods and even had a category of foods called "no-no foods" that i wouldn't dare put in my mouth. on my 22nd birthday, my coworkers had gotten me a birthday cake and i didn't even eat a slice because i was so afraid of getting "fat". i actually took a bite in front of them and went and spit it out in the garbage can. sad, right? it took me a long time to realize this wasn't being "healthy," this was being obsessive and that i was setting the wrong example for everyone else. 🚫 now, i abide by the 80/20 rule where i like to eat healthy 80% of the time while leaving 20% of my time for some indulgence (pizza, ice cream, donuts, whatever). it's all about moderation. and if i indulge, i don't punish myself by jumping on the treadmill for an hour or skipping a meal. i'm much happier today now that i actually enjoy myself. i've learned there's a balance that you must strive for. you cannot be completely on one end of either side of the spectrum. people have this idea that being fit means you have to avoid certain foods, but that's not true. not one bit. i just wanted to point this out! this girl loves some pizza, okay? πŸ•
Freaking out about my new fitness tools! 😱 Lately I've been caring a lot less about weight and focusing on body composition such as fat %, water %, and muscle %. I want to know exactly what's going on with my body instead of some basic number that tells me how much I weigh because let's be honest, that really doesn't matter! πŸ™„ I picked up a @nokiahealth (formally Withings) Body Cardio scale that syncs with my Steel watch to track all of the following including heart rate, daily activity, and sleep. Then it all records onto my iPhone app so I can easily track my progress. πŸ’ͺ🏼 Here's to accomplish some GOALS this summer! 
Check out their products at @nokiahealth or at their site: https://health.nokia.com/us/en. 
Ps: don't hate on my feet. I'm overdue for a pedicure 🀣😭

Feeling blue and don't know what to do? Create your own routine! Exercise is only going to be as fun as you make it.. and if you're not enjoying yourself, you won't stick with it. There is no right or wrong way. Just do what works for you!

Hello, abs. πŸ‘€ Amazing what a few simple tweaks to your diet can change things. 🍏 I've stopped drinking alcohol (except for wine here and there), upped my daily cardio, and upped my daily protein intake. Within two weeks, I noticed I was leaner, but you guys also pointed it out as well which made me feel so happy! 😻 Let's talk about coffee for a second. β˜•οΈWhere's my coffee drinkers at? πŸ™‹πŸ½ I LOVE coffee and I have decreased from 2 cups to 1 cup a day. Instead of drinking a second cup, I'll drink my protein coffee mix from @drinkclick. Yup... protein powder mixed with espresso. Heaven, right? 🌈 Coffee is actually amazing for weight loss as it boosts your metabolism to help you burn more calories throughout the day. How's that for a win??

Tea time with my mini-me tonight! β˜•οΈ She's using the same cup I used as a toddler! πŸ’• Having a little girl has been nothing short of a blessing because we get to bond in so many ways. 
I've been exhausted lately with juggling work, caring for two kids, and helping a hubby at home who's recovering from surgery for his appendix. I'm not going to lie.. it's been stressful and my anxiety levels have been high lately 😞 I've made it a habit to make time for myself and have a cup of tea nightly before settling down for bed. Tonight, Everly just happened to want to join in!

I'm drinking my favorite blend from @teamiblends. The Relax blend soothes my busy mind and calms my anxiety when I need it the most. It features ingredients such as Lavender Flower, Chamomile, Lemon grass, Orange peel, and Valerian Root extract to help keep your stresses away. 🌸

All teas are breastfeeding and pregnancy safe (except the Colon Cleanse) as well! WOOHOO! If you wanna try it for yourself, take 15% off your ENTIRE order with code DIARY.

Yesterday, I went and got powder brows from @lovalashbar! You guys know I'm a fan of microblading, but I wanted to try the newest technique. Instead of using little cuts to make hair-like strokes, powder brows uses an actual tattoo gun to make small dots so the end look appears as if you've filled your brows in with powder versus just looking like hair. I'm in love with them! Have any of you guys done this? I suck at doing my own brows so it's nice to not have to keep up with them 🀣🀣🀣

Who's ready for a bedtime workout?πŸ™‹πŸ½ These moves can be done on your bed and will help you wind down before you have those sweet dreams.😴 What was I massaging on you ask... I've been using the Gel-V from @vannabelt. It's been using it for a couple of weeks now and I actually really love it! It gives me a tingling sensation from the menthol and  green tea it's made completely of nature based ingredients which helps to stimulate and tighten loose skin. I'm usually skeptical about these things, but so far so good 😍
