I am officially moved into my new apartment in Ottawa with my boyfriend! It’s the first time living without my parents. I am finally able to buy the foods I want without having cake and cookies constantly lying around. My pantry and fridge is now full with healthy foods without any distractions outside my diet. For those of you who live with people who compromise your diet, my advice to you is to have an area or cupboard in your kitchen that is only yours. Stock it with foods that will help you stay on track and avoid the communal food if possible. 🍏🍎 We installed this slot wall with baskets and are using it for fruits, onions, potatoes, squash, balsamic vinegar, rice vinegar, olive oil, quinoa, brown rice, my fav cook books and of course, some Pinot Grigio. 🍷🍴 When you surround yourself with positive people and positive energy it really helps with the process #inspiredtobefit #itbf #pinterest #homedecor #kitchen

I am officially back from vacation! I had an amazing week full of festivities. From Vegas, to my birthday, to a wedding…it’s safe to say that I indulged…a lot. When I am on vacation I want to enjoy myself so if I want all you can eat buffets I won’t stop myself! Although I didn’t go to the gym, I got a lot of exercise walking down the Vegas strip 2 hours a day in the blazing heat. The worst thing you can do is make yourself feel guilty on vacation. Just enjoy yourself and eat what you want. Of course if there are healthy options, take them but that’s not always the case. This is a great opportunity for me to tell you all what I do when I get back from vacation and how I detox to get back on track. First thing I do is get a good nights sleep. You probably need it. When I wake up I make a healthy smoothie- like the one in the picture along with eggs and a side of tomatoes and cucumbers. Then I’ll go for a long walk. I don’t want to shock my body and go straight to the gym and lift weights. It really helps clear your mind and assist with the detox process. I will make sure to drink lots and lots and lots of water throughout the next few days. I will then make sure that I eat only home cooked meals for the next little while ensuring that I am eating whole, unprocessed foods. Once I feel up for it, I will go to the gym and do a low impact full body workout just to get my muscles warmed up. I will continue to eat very clean as well. Before you know it, you will be back on track. The most important thing to keep in mind is if you did gain weight on your trip, it will come off. Your body will slowly adjust to the healthy foods you are used to and the extra fat will go away with time. Don’t be hard on yourself because it won’t last long (as long as you are back in the gym and eating healthier than you were on your trip there shouldn’t be a problem). If you have any questions feel free to ask. Happy detox! 🍏πŸ’ͺπŸ’› #inspiredtobefit #itbf #detox #vacation #healthy

This is what I call a healthy alternative to the classic apple pie! 🍎🍏🍎 It’s soo easy to make and tastes sooo good! All you need to do is slice 2 large green apples (I used Granny Smith), lay them on a tray with parchment paper sprayed with pam, and cover them with a mixture of: cinnamon, vanilla extract, walden farms pancake syrup and flavoured stevia (I used vanilla cream). I didn’t measure these but instead just played around with what I thought tasted good, just remember to use a good amount of cinnamon to really get the apple pie taste. After lathering BOTH sides of the apples in the mixture, sprinkle some oats on top (optional). Bake in the oven at 400F for 20mins or longer depending on how soft you want your apples to be. This is a recipe for the books. Enjoy!! #inspiredtobefit #itbf #applepie #healthy

When I started my Instagram account I was the girl on the left 
πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ
I created this account to keep myself motivated and accountable. I used this amazing space to log my meals, workouts, before and after shots, selfies (of course) and inspirational quotes to keep me going. I was ready to make and see a change. Slowly as the months went by, with lots of consistent workouts and healthy eating, I saw the fat melting off and muscle growing. I also saw that my Instagram was no longer just my own but a place to help and inspire others. I couldn’t and still cannot believe that I am able to help many of you with your own health and fitness goals. I just wanted to say thank you all for being my MAIN inspiration and the reasons I have come this far on my journey. I appreciate every like and I read every single comment (although I apologize for not being able to answer everyone’s questions). It truly means the world to have all of your support. I am very lucky. 

Here I am today, the girl on the right

If I was able to do it right here before your eyes, you all most definitely can too. πŸ’›πŸ’ͺ😘
