Set a goal, and then fucking crush it. On the morning of March 2, I set a goal to ride every single day until I left for vacation. Well, I’m leaving today and with my 45 minute ride this morning with @codyrigsby, I accomplished it. Only snuck in one 5 minute ride to keep my streak going, and I have zero guilt about that. 5 minutes on the bike is better than 5 minutes on the couch, right? Can’t wait to set my next goal once I get back. In the meantime, enjoy the break from my sweaty selfies, and get ready for some French vacation pics.
45 minute ride done and got a new PR. It was @codyrigsby’s BSB/NSYNC ride from 3/16/18 and it was super fun. I’ll be honest though (and IG was down yesterday so I didn’t post then) but yesterday was HARD. I just... didn’t want to do it. I was far from any new achievements and wouldn’t feel closer after a ride. I ran out of time during the day. No ride appealed to me a ton. But I just forced it, because I set a goal to ride every day until I left for vacation. And I did it. And it was great! I had a blast and felt amazing when it was done. Of course. So the lesson is this: some days you just do something because you promised yourself you would, and you don’t have to love it, but you do it because you love yourself. #selflove #selfcare
Am I really even a WLS instagrammer if I DON’T post a pic in a #zozosuit? Paired it with some Louboutins and told my husband it was a chic look I picked up for France. He looks concerned. FASHION, BABY!
This week is looking pretty good so far! And oh yeah, that’s just me finishing a ride in the top 50%. No big deal from someone who was consistently in the bottom 10% when I started! Literally started from the bottom now we here! @allymisslove pushed me through and I am so proud tonight. Swipe for ride details and a playlist preview because I KNOW my country lovers are going to want to clip in for this one.
More meals that tasted better than they looked! Chicken Livorno from @getfreshly for lunch, and crockpot salsa chicken and 1/4 cup yellow rice for dinner. Another day of good eating!
Did a live ride, and man, that leaderboard is so much more motivational there than on demand! Who knew? Got a 10 day streak going, and loving the way my March calendar looks. I’m almost sad I’m going to break my streak to go on vacation. ALMOST. Okay, I’m over it. Anyway, #sweatyselfie here, with sweat literally dripping down my chest. Intense intervals and arms from @jesskingnyc
My 4 year old, after quietly eating his whole helping: “what did you call this?” Me: “meatloaf.” Him: “oh! I think I like meatloaf! Can I have more, please?” It’s not a sexy meal, and I’m way too pleased with myself after making one Friday night and dropping it in the sink before serving it (RIP meatloaf) but this was perfect. And with garlic Parmesan spinach, it totally hit the spot.
Got my peloplan for the week, and my first ride down! Absolutely 🔥 playlist from @robinnyc to celebrate women’s history month. Aren’t my charts so pretty?
Hit my 25 ride milestone tonight. Might not seem like much to the 2500 ride peloton members out there, but I genuinely don’t think there’s any type of exercise I’ve stuck with 25 times. Everyone says “if I can do this, so can you,” but seriously, take it from me. My daily goal is to do as little as humanly possible. If I am doing this, literally any human being in the world can too. Also, yeah, already got bronze for my March challenges, no big deal 💅
All that damn sweat in just 20 minutes of low impact with my pretend boyfriend @alextoussaint25. Awesome recovery ride after the last few days of pushing. Can’t wait for yoga tonight.
First 45 minute ride in the books! Two months ago, when I got my @onepeloton, a 10 minute ride was a huge challenge. And while I had to modify today, I am SO proud of what I did here. Gotta admit, around 22 minutes in I was like “I made a huge mistake” but I was determined to see it through. And kept my streak going! 6 days down, 11 days to go!
What do I love? Eating. What do I hate? Cooking lunches. OH MY GOD why is prepping lunches SOOOOO tedious? Trying out Freshly for the next week. My nutritionist wants my lunches protein packed, under 35g of carbs, and around 400 calories. @getfreshly had plenty of options! Excited to have something delicious to eat that I don’t have to prepare. Do you use Freshly? What are your favorite meals to try?
I had zero intention of hitting a PR when I got on my bike tonight- especially because I hit one last night and just wanted to get a streak going before I go on vacation later this month. But with this Greatest Showman soundtrack I ended up CRUSHING my previous record by 16%. WHAAAAAT. Do it, do it, do it. Now if Robin could only do a High School Musical theme ride, my Zac Efron loving heart will be content.
