Dreaming of days when the ground wasn’t covered in snow. ☀️ . . Throw back to when I got to hang with @lisamichelle_12 in Chicago before a business trip. It was the most beautiful day! So happy to have her here in Minnesota now so we can go on lots of adventures this summer 👯♀️
Sitting in HNL not wanting to go home.. but reflecting on how amazingly lucky I am. Hawaii was an incredible experience and a much needed getaway. . . Already counting the days until I can get back on a plane and head to the next adventure ✈️✌🏻 . . #wanderlust #adventure #carlylavigne #pentax645 #shootfilm #travel #stevensfamilyvacay
Bags are packed and I am MAUI BOUND with @tps021 @astevensbrown @thetacomaguy and crew! . Can’t wait to leave this gloom and gray for sunnier skies and sandy beaches ✌🏻To say I am excited for this vacation is a complete understatement. . Stay tuned, my Instastory game is about to get crazy 💃🏻☀️🌸🌺🌴 . . . #shootfilm #bayfield #moped #motorbike #adventure #travel #hawaiiherewecome ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Happy International Women’s Day to all of my fierce ladies out there! 💃🏻🌷 . You are strong, courageous, powerful, beautiful, and capable of anything. 💪🏻 . . #carlylavigne #bw #blackandwhite #portrait #internationalwomensday #shootfilm
It is truly amazing what a machine our bodies are! . I have always had terrible eating habits. Growing up I was a picky eater; I loved candy, and fueled myself on mac & cheese. I ate mounds of ice cream (still my favorite food) before bed, and could eat a package of Oreos in one sitting. When I landed a corporate job, I would eat two donuts every morning and got myself hooked on Red Bull (I still don’t like coffee), skipping real food all together. . Fast forward through traumatizing personal experiences, deep rooted self-confidence issues, and emotional abuse from an unloving partner — the anxiety about my body and health hit an all-time high this summer. . Wake up call. . Being a dancer, I’ve always enjoyed exercise and have been on the “thin side” my whole life.. but underneath it all, I wasn’t healthy. I got a hold of my medical records from 2013.. at the young age 24 my cholesterol hit a high of 213!! My HDL specifically was off the chart. With the addition of major stress in my life, I’ve come into new health concerns that have forced me to change the way I eat and approach food. . Everyone’s health and fitness journey looks different. We all take different paths to get there and find solutions that work best for us. For me, I started intermittent fasting to help with my low energy levels, cut beef from my diet to drop my cholesterol, and have cut back on sugar, carbs and dairy (yes, that means ice cream 😳). I have the most amazing fitness coach @yourfitwithsasha who gives me a plan and advice, and a fit community of like-minded people to keep me accountable. My new partner in life @tps021 has been the most encouraging and supportive person, and is walking this journey alongside me, rather than in front. I meal prep and bring lunch to work, I love cooking dinner at night, I make better choices at restaurants, and have tons of new delicious foods to choose from (how have I been missing out on butternut squash and sweet potatoes my whole life?!) . I still struggle with food anxiety, guilt, and body image. But I’ve come a long way and need to celebrate the wins. 💪🏻 . I would love to hear about your fitness journey! What are you celebrating?! 💃🏻
