What you all probably don't know about me is I'm a PhD student and I spend most of my time in the lab (especially this past week 😥), sometimes until the wee hours... Anyway! Soooo my whole 'I'm going to do my own challenge' thing sorta fizzled out... Between being sick and now having a hectic couple of weeks at work, I just couldn't stick with it... Excuses, excuses. So I'm excited about this next challenge starting on Monday so I can get back to some sort balance! #sleepyselfie #gradschool #lablife

First sweaty selfie of 2018! 😜 Leg day is a tough first workout, but it feels good to sweat! I meant to get up early and workout first thing, but insomnia made that next to impossible... But proud of myself for getting it done as soon as I got home from work! 👊🏻 #fitgirlsguide #sweatyselfie

Everyone's least favorite part: the before pics. I can tell from my last progress pics that I've gained a bit over the past month 😳 I guess that's going to be part of my motivation to stick with these healthy habits for the long term 💪🏻💪🏻 #fitgirlsguide #progressnotperfection #progresspic

Took my progress photos yesterday before heading back to Washington for Christmas... I lost 3.6 pounds and 1.5% body fat, gained some muscle, and lost an inch or so off my waist, hips and thighs! The changes don't look very obvious to me, but I try to remind myself that it has only been one month, and I am physically feeling better. Also this has been the longest I have ever eaten healthfully in my adult life, and it isn't as hard as I thought! Thank you @fitgirlsguide for making it so easy (and tasty) to eat healthy!! #fitgirlphotochallenge #fitgirlsguide #progressnotperfection #progresspic #jumpstartprogress #28dayjumpstart #immyownhero

I feel like my face has been stuck like this all day... Another miserable day at work. A coworker has been almost hostile towards me the past week because of a mistake I made, and won't let it go. I don't want to work out, I just want to curl up and disappear... Trying not to let sad girl get in control and eat anything with sugar... #badday #fitgirls

This is from a week ago when it snowed here in San Antonio, which was the biggest snowfall they've had since 1985 apparently 🤣🤣🤣 I wasn't impressed lol but I'm dying to go back home to Washington for Christmas in just over a week! And see real snow and go snowboarding!!! #fitgirlphotochallenge #snow

Sleepy and sweaty selfie! After coming home from work and taking out my dog, I put my workout clothes on but then passed out for a few hours! But then I woke up and put in the work 👊👊👊 need to get back into a regular routine but it's not going to happen until after the holidays #fitgirlsguide #immyownhero #28dayjumpstart #sweatyselfie #progressnotperfection

The amazing woman I chose for woman crush Wednesday is my grandmother... She is one of the most amazing people I have ever known and also one of my biggest supporters. Earlier this year she was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. They have detected it relatively early so hopefully intervention will prevent the disease from progressing quickly. She has recently joined a boxing program for women with Parkinson's to fight back against the symptoms. Exercise releases dopamine in the brain and research has shown this can reduce the symptoms and slow disease progression. She told me that there are women with all stages of the disease in the class, even ones in wheelchairs. I'm proud of my grandma for taking life into her own hands even when faced with this terrifying disease. I hope I could be as strong and brave as she is ❤️👊💪❤️ #WCW #fitgirlsguide #immyownhero #fitgirlphotochallenge

Okay super weird angle BUT I was trying to show off my favorite stretch: the hurdle stretch! If you have super tight quads, this stretch is the best! Definitely just what I needed after a pretty intense leg day 💪😎 #sweatyselfie #stretching #fitgirlsguide #immyownhero #28dayjumpstart
