Fun photo session before embracing the fat!

Some of you might remember the pictures I did of myself last summer... well it's been almost a year so I felt like another self-portrait session was in order. I did one last week and I'm in the midst of planning another in the near future. These are more than just pretty pictures to me though... they are a form of self expression for me. This first set of images is sorta my representation of softness, innocence, and purity. I'm currently in to the monochromatic look (white-on-white) and I am a HUGE fan of all things vintage. I am wearing a slip in some of these that really is a vintage slip... it was one my mother had from way back when I was a child. There was also a vintage dress from a garage sale and also a few images where I experimented with just draping myself with a piece of sheer white fabric.

 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 
^^there were tons more, that's all I've had to edit so far. The next session will be the complete opposite!
 
Btw... the hair extensions are from Luxy Hair. They are fabulous and I LOVE them. In case anyone is interested...
 
Also... for those of you who have made fabulous transformations... I highly recommended treating yourself to a photo shoot. It's a great reward and the pictures are something you will always have and never regret investing in. Just make sure you pick a photographer that knows what they are doing. You get what you pay for. 

Checking in...

Hey yall! It's been a while so I thought I'd update my progress! So I did the competition back in June and since then I gained about 5lbs (at least that's what stuck after the cruise) and have pretty much maintained around 130lbs. I'm just so over tracking every calorie at this point that I'm not doing it for now. I'm just eating intuitively but still following IF. I am still planning to bulk but I want to wait until it cools off a bit more. All of my shorts are size 4 and given the amount of lean mass I was able to add to my glutes during the last bulk... they are already fitting quite snug. If I gain much more I won't have anything to wear!

So, I am not sure how I'm going to manage my nutrition during the bulk but I am thinking I'll just add breakfast back in. I will only need a few hundred extra calories so a protein shake or some oats in the morning would do it. As for my training, I just started a new routine... Layne Norton's PHAT... with my own modifications. For those not familiar with it:

I created these handy dandy reference tags with the complete training schedule to take with me to the gym. I love them! Yes I am a total gym nerd. 

 
So I'm still doing Zumba but have added some other activities here and there for cardio just for fun. I joined an gymnastics-for-grownups class. After 20 years I can still do flip-flops! Crazy huh! I've also been trying to bring the kids skating often. I love to skate... more like skate dance! LOL I get down on dem skates like nobody is watching... I love it! I even got some super cool skating attire... cuz I'm crazy like that! I wore my skate clothes to the gym the other day. The socks were a big hit! 
 
 
 
^^So that's what's going on with me! I hope everyone is doing well. I haven't been here much nor have I been tracking. I will pick back up when I'm ready. Everyone needs a break from the food obsession. Breaks are good...
