Instagram Public Photos with #tanyaswellnessjourney
comment 3 star 58 2 weeks ago

I think the photo speaks for itself. happy mother fuckin’ transformation tuesday, bitches! and happy october 1st. 😌 -

this month is the big one! i’mma b**w all your minds. can’t wait to look back again in a few weeks. -

on a side note, these benchmark photos are super hard to look at and hard to post. but i am so grateful that i took them and have them to look back on to keep reminding myself how far i’ve come. they keep my head in the game and keep me going and keep me proud of what i’ve achieved ... despite a lot of physical, health, mental and situational adversity that i’ve faced throughout the challenges of this incredible journey. -

i would like to give a huge special thank you to my coaches @fit4lifer and @kellygarrah for believing in me, pushing me and working closely with me. -

to @thesculptedvegan for her constant education, inspiration and shred programs. also to all of my amazing friends and family and even strangers that have supported, encouraged and cheered me on along the way! i am so thankful for it all. -

Excuse me while i b**w your mind a lil bit. 🔥😎 -

check-in time! 2 weeks out. 13 days to go. this is what happens when you work your f*****g a*s off physically and mentally and finish what you started. not easy. but so worth it! -

would also like to acknowledge my personal trainer: @fit4lifer my second trainer/posing coach: @kellygarrah and the @thesculptedvegan #sv12weekshred for helping me get this far! also @bikinilicious for my suits! these investments were all keys to my success. -

i’ve now officially lost almost 70lbs since i started my #tanyaswellnessjourney and i am even more excited to proudly walk on that stage as a @canadianphysiquealliance #athlete at the @ottawabodybuilding show. -

You know you’re doing something right when your favourite spandex shorts are now significantly too big for you. maybe it’s just the huge bed head i gots going on? 😂🤷‍♀️ it’s now day 8/42 - officially 5 weeks out. photo/pose check ins tomorrow. i’m having a slight hip issue. pretty sure it’s from the stationary bike challenge i completed the other day! lol i just had to beat my daughter. hahahaha lesson learned. i will be sticking to steady state cardio for the remainder of this prep. don’t need any injuries. happy saturday everyone! loving the new magical unicorn slippers i got from my coaches! way better than heels! 😂😂 #fit4lifer #fitover40 #fitmom #girlswholift #health #wellness #fitness #fitlife #gymlife #preplife #bikiniprep #shred #transformation #fitnessmotivation #onlinetraining #selflove #selfcare #strongwomen #keepgoing #gettingstageready2019 #bikinibodybuilding #ottawabodybuilding #tanyaswellnessjourney #bikiniprep2019 #grandmasters #bikinibodybuilding #5weeksout

comment 14 star 40 October 2019

Me. at my absolute heaviest. well over 200 lbs in 2016 holding my first grandson. back when i believed that it was “too late” and that i was “too far gone”... “too old”... had “too many serious health issues to exercise”... and every other excuse and b******t story i told myself. vs me. today. 135lbs and building muscle. looking and feeling stronger and better than i ever imagined possible. living in the absolute best body i have owned in this lifetime. competing in bodybuilding competitions. -
how did i achieve this? first let me tell you how i didn’t achieve this... -
i didn’t use wraps, special creams or magic coffee or dietary supplements or unsustainable diets. -
i achieved this by setting realistic small goals and big goals and following plans with @fit4lifer to achieve them. i learned how to fuel my body for my goals. i learned about macros, calories, deficits, meal planning and the science of food and things i consume. i drastically changed my eating habits to clean eating 95% of the time. -
i achieved this by training consistently and pushing through a lot of pain. modifying as necessary along the way. i invested in exercise and cardio online programs that actually work to achieve these goals. there was no magic. no luck. just a lot of hard work, hustle and determination. -
i don’t post and share this stuff to brag. i do it to prove that anything is possible. ❤️ -

Check in day! 9 weeks out from @thecobourgnaturals stage. weight is moving, new lines are showing up and i’m happy with my progress so far. my lower back is pretty tight this morning so twisting/posing was hard, but i will get that massaged out soon. looking forward to killing another week! #athlete #fit4lifer #fit4liferathlete #girlswholift #momswholift #grandmaswholift #cobourgnaturals2020 #posing #bikiniathlete #grandmastersbikini #fitover40 #bodybuilding #training #womenwholift #bodybuildingwomen #progress #transformation #selfcare #selfimprovement #tanyaswellnessjourney

13 weeks out and i’m already vascular. this never happened my whole entire first prep. i could faintly see some veins in my forearms but they would come and go. this is a huge improvement. i will be a whole new version of stage lean for this show. it’s exciting. #athlete #fit4lifer #fit4liferathlete #girlswholift #momswholift #grandmaswholift #cobourgnaturals2020 #bikiniathlete #grandmastersbikini #fitover40 #bodybuilding #training #improvement #bodybuildingwomen #progress #transformation #selfcare #selfimprovement #tanyaswellnessjourney #gettingstageready2020

We are officially 13 weeks out from the @thecobourgnaturals show! the first week of prep together has been full of challenges, learning and hilariousness. all things considered, we are off to a good start and i am really proud of us so far. as you can see, we both have different areas of our physique to work on. but i have no doubt we will get there. - 😜

It’s check-in day. no filters and a little washed out by the natural lighting. officially 13 weeks out from @thecobourgnaturals stage.
not gonna lie... last week was tough. after 2.5 months of unrestricted diet and training, it was difficult for my body to adapt to getting back into “prep mode”... but it feels good to follow a restricted diet and training routine again. because a goal without a plan is just a wish!
my starting point is significantly better than when i started prepping for my first show. i am super excited to see how it changes for this one. i think it’s going to be mind blowing🤩

Officially 14 weeks out from the @thecobourgnaturals competition. we’ve definitely got work to do... but not even remotely close to all the work i had to do for my first show. this time i’m really going to prove that grandma’s can be kickass bodybuilders too! #athlete #fit4lifer #fit4liferathlete #girlswholift #momswholift #grandmaswholift #cobourgnaturals2020 #gains #posing #bikiniathlete #grandmastersbikini #fitover40 #bodybuilding #training #bodybuildingwomen #progress #transformation #improvementtraining #selfcare #selfimprovement #tanyaswellnessjourney

comment 4 star 35 last month

First cardio challenge of 2020 and celebrating the fact that we are now officially 100 days out from @thecobourgnaturals stage! it’s now time to level up! the goal of this challenge was setting a benchmark to beat in 6 weeks from now. 20 min on the stairs...starting at level 10.... no holding yourself up. which is a lot more difficult than holding yourself up! -

stairmaster cardio is extra challenging for me not only because i’m a grandma (hahahaha) but also because of my lisfranc injury in my right foot. my entire mid-foot dislocates if i’m not careful. so that’s fun! but i have mastered these stairs despite my challenges. -

also found one of my besties and fellow #fit4lifer on the stairs too! and then there’s #coffee my favourite pre/post workout! -

comment 4 star 37 last month

Seriously tho. it’s kinda possible. you are capable of anything... in almost all realistic situations. some things take more effort, time, hard work, patience, resilience, courage, determination and failure to come to fruition. however, consistency and sustainability are key factors in anything you set out to be or do in life. -

and if you truly knew all of the mental struggles and s**t i’ve had to battle along the way, to get to where i am today, it would probably b**w your mind. this wellness, self-care, self-improvement journey has been one hell of a ride. i am a diagnosed clinically depressed person. non-medicated by choice. it’s taken a lot of mental strength and changing the way i think very quickly when my mind gravitates towards the dark and depression part that still very much exists in my brain. but i do not allow the negative in my life to become excuses for not living my best life. i fight those thoughts with all my might. i make wiser choices and learn from the not so wise choices. i also do my very best not to drain others with negative energy. no matter how hard it is. -

mindset is everything. positive thinking is powerful. thoughts can become things. it’s energy. it’s universal law. what you focus on, you will attract. remember that every single time you think, feel, react and speak. ❤️ -

A little #flexfriday for ya. part of improvement training is eating a lot more calories and putting weight back on. although stage lean is never realistic to maintain, seeing that scale move can still give you a little jolt of “ugh”.... but it’s all good. i’m so super happy with my achievements. i totally got this! #athlete #fit4lifer #fit4liferathlete #girlswholift #cobourgnaturals2020 #gains #growth #bikiniathlete #grandmastersbikini #fitover40 #bodybuilding #training #bodybuildingwomen #progress #improvementtraining #selfcare #selfimprovement #tanyaswellnessjourney

Amazing start to what’s going to be an amazing week because i won’t have it any other way. i am blessed to possess the mental strength to understand that that’s completely up to me and my choices.
i’ve learned a lot about myself the last two months. mostly about my worth and what i deserve. i’ve always tried to be a happy positive person regardless of the chaos and insanity that surrounds me. i take pride in that. but this happiness is like nothing i’ve ever felt. it’s incredible. it’s extraordinary.
i’m looking forward to what’s next and the opportunities that await for 2020. just need to narrow down which ones i will focus on first.
happy monday everyone! sending out positive energy and vibes! ❤️❤️❤️🔥🔥🔥 #happymonday #mondaymotivation #keepgoing #itsagooddaytohaveagoodday #goodvibes #positvevibes #tanyaswellnessjourney #mentalstrength

A few weeks ago while i was working an event, i was given this kick-ass card by joanne curran with the most amazing message written inside. i laughed my a*s off when i saw the happy birthday crossed out inside! too funny.... but she said, she had to buy the card and give it to me anyway because the character on the front was me! 🤷‍♀️ joanne, i just wanted you to know that your little gift and message to me was so empowering and impactful that i made “born to kick-ass” my mantra since the day that i received it. whenever i struggle or feel defeated, i open the card and read it. i have driven with this card on my dashboard and i even recreated the design and printed it on most of my competition wardrobe. it will also be the first lifting sisters shop for a cause campaign! (let me know what size/colour shirt you would like!)😍 so thank you so much for taking the time and effort to tell me and show me how sharing my journey has impacted you in a positive way. it wasn’t just a card, it took me to the next level and carried me through to this day! love you!! 😘 -

Probably my favourite quote of 2019. what you do... how you do it... where you do it... why you do it... with who doesn’t even matter... what matters is that it’s all good. #quoteoftheyear #quoteoftheday #dogood #feelgood #begood #universallawofattraction #mentalstrength #keepgoing #tanyaswellnessjourney

Taking another look back because it’s transformation tuesday. you can change your life too. you just need to start. set goals. little goals and big goals. eat clean and train dirty. do what you can with where you are and what you have. be consistent and disciplined. and whatever you do, don’t quit. #transformationtuesday 4 days away from my huge goal to get my a*s up on that @ottawabodybuilding stage!
please vote for me to make it to the #sv12weekshred top 10! 🙏🥰 link in bio!

Try this one on leg day or during any strength training workout for maximum hamstring activation. ⠀

keep the spine neutral, feet flat, and push the hips back until you feel the stretch in the hamstrings. ⠀

It’s #peakweek and then #sass is strong today. 🤷‍♀️😂 i’m almost always a happy positive person... but it doesn’t mean i don’t think these things or express them amongst friends.😂😂 let’s be honest. 🤷‍♀️😎 #fit4lifer #fitover40 #fitmom #girlswholift #health #wellness #fitness #fitlife #gymlife #preplife #bikiniprep #shred #transformation #fitnessmotivation #onlinetraining #selflove #selfcare #strongwomen #keepgoing #gettingstageready2019 #bikinibodybuilding #ottawabodybuilding #tanyaswellnessjourney #bikiniprep2019 #grandmastersbikini

What’s that? it’s almost november? not according to my outfit. hahahaha tomorrow is the official start of peak week and ribs are out. wow. i can’t believe it’s here. it’s going to be the hardest week yet! but it’s okay, because i’ve got this. 🔥 i’m not going to lie, my brain is not the same. but thanks to so much love and support (and my sass and sense of humour) i’ve still got this!!

Walked by a maple syrup booth down in market square this afternoon and the nicest lady asked me if i would like to try a sample of her maple syrup and i looked at her way too seriously and said, “no, i can’t.” ... like in a why would you even ask me that kinda way.😂😂
🤷‍♀️
so she looks as me very seriously back and say “okay”... then i started laughing because i felt like a lunatic and was going to explain but then i was was like, no keep going... she won’t understand. 🤷‍♀️
and so yeah, wow. this is the stage of prep i’m at. hahahaha 😂😂😂😂
🤷‍♀️
8 more crazy days to go! #quoteoftheday #preplife #

Excuse me while i b**w your mind a lil bit. 🔥😎 -

check-in time! 2 weeks out. 13 days to go. this is what happens when you work your f*****g a*s off physically and mentally and finish what you started. not easy. but so worth it! -

would also like to acknowledge my personal trainer: @fit4lifer my second trainer/posing coach: @kellygarrah and the @thesculptedvegan #sv12weekshred for helping me get this far! also @bikinilicious for my suits! these investments were all keys to my success. -

i’ve now officially lost almost 70lbs since i started my #tanyaswellnessjourney and i am even more excited to proudly walk on that stage as a @canadianphysiquealliance #athlete at the @ottawabodybuilding show. -

It’s important to take some time every now at then to look back, reflect and just be grateful for every single thing, good and bad, that has ultimately contributed to your present. the present is what matters most, but all the things leading up to it deserve acknowledgement. you need to appreciate the good and make peace with the not so good. that’s how you successfully keep moving forward and keep working towards achieving your goals. that’s how you maintain your mental strength. yep. it’s as simple and as complicated as that. 😘😉 #quoteoftheday #lookback #bethankful #makepeacewithyourpast #begrateful #keepgoing #mentalstrength #tanyaswellnessjourney
