Felt amazing to finally get a good long run in! This heat has really been hurting my training, but I will overcome it! #marathontraining #mainemarathon #longrun #longrunsundayonamonday #run #running #iloverunning #weightloss #weightlossjourney #cantstopwontstop #nevergiveup
Throwback to last night when I completely owned my first attempt at making baby back ribs! #takethatbbqs #iwantmybabybackribs #birthdaydinner #cooking #babybackribs #falloffthebone #delicious
Happy Birthday Anthony Martinez! I've spent wayyyyy too many birthdays with you. You need to find cooler people to hang out with. I hope you enjoy my baking, because I'm surely too scared to try it myself! Thank you @vibingwestward for your baking guidance. 😂😂😂 #birthday #gettingolder #hesonhiswaytothenursinghome #justkidding #baking #cake #birthdaycake #homemade #bakedwithlove
Went and picked up my gear for tomorrow's #bkr_u_n5k after running a 10-miler! Note to self: When running in the sun for several hours, beware of tan lines created by headbands and hats. #longrunsunday #marathontraining #nyrr #tanlines #awkwardtanlines
I'm not going to hide from my size anymore and I'm not going to be afraid to show my journey. A few years ago, I weighed well over 300 lbs. I was miserable and unhealthy. I woke up one day and realized that I had gotten myself to where I was and it was up to me to get out of it. No more excuses. The journey has not been easy. I've gone up and down, felt motivated and felt like giving up, but with help from friends, family, @ebaumfitness, and my phenomenal personal trainer @ferg_training who has yet to give up on me, I'm down 80lbs. I need to keep going. I've decided to start sharing my journey to not only inspire others, but to help motivate me to not give up. If you want to see more, @fatfitnfierce is my new account. Never be afraid to show the progress you've made and I never should have been in the first place! #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #weightlossinspiration #beforeandafter #innerstrength #cantstopwontstop #nevergiveup
#tbt to yesterday and my LAST DAY OF SCHOOL! I DID IT! Clearly, I went directly home after and didn't celebrate or drink at all... #lastdayofschool #teacher #teacherlife #musicteacher #musicteacherlife #newteacher #newteacherlife #itsonlyjuice #dontjudgeme
Last post! If you love Harry Potter and you haven't invested in the illustrated books by Jim Kay, then you are severely missing out. These books bring new magic to such an amazing story! #harrypotter #iloveharrypotter #harrypotteranniversary #jimkay #jimkayillustrations #dumbledorequotes #themirroroferised #harrypotterandthesorcerersstone
And let's not forget, if we didn't have Harry Potter we wouldn't have this AMAZING scene from The Office. #harrypotter #harrypotteranniversary #harrypotterreference #theoffice #prisonmike #dementors #iloveharrypotter #ilovetheoffice
I wish I could say that this was my original copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone that I got 20 years ago when I was just 7. Unfortunately, I left my original copy on a table in the rain outside of @cstasi house. I still have that destroyed copy somewhere, but here is the second copy that has made it through the decades! Thank you for changing my life and giving me my favorite quote, "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." #harrypotter #harrypotteranniversary #harrypotterandthesorcerersstone #iloveharrypotter #dumbledorequotes
Throwback to yesterday's 5th grade graduation! It was absolutely amazing! I can't believe my first year of teaching is almost over. #graduation #5thgradegraduation #teacher #teacherlife #newteacher #musicteacher #musicteacherlife #isitnextweekyet
Unfortunately, I had to miss last week's #Mini10k due to an injury, but this week I'm back in the game! #queens10k #letsdothis #cantstopwontstop #nopainnogain #myborough #run #running #iloverunning #nyrr
11 days left of school and I have yet to get my picture on the school staff bulletin board. This is the 4th time they've redone it... #alwaysapostit #giveafacetoaname #teacher #musicteacher #clusterteacher #newteacher #teacherlife #musicteacherlife #newteacherlife
Same selfie, different race. I gotta switch it up next time! #Mini10k next weekend! #ontothenextone #raceeveryweekend #NYRRretro #cantstopwontstop #nopainnogain #run #running #iloverunning #centralpark #nyrr
@ferg_training got me to do the Murph today by asking me to sing the National Anthem. First time singing for an event in a long time. I was super nervous, but I STILL GOT IT... I think! #murph #murphchallenge #nysc #nyscastoria #crossfit #ilovecrossfit #memorialday #nationalanthem #singing #cantstopwontstop #nopainnogain
