Being happy and secure in who you are is the key to feeling fulfilled. It starts of by being honest with YOU and with what you really want in this life.
Stop hating yourself for what you think you AREN'T -- and start loving WHO YOU ARE
As for changing your body: Challenging your muscles with heavier weights, not ONLY light "mini-weights" in your workouts is what you need to get toned. What is "Heavy" is PERSONAL (I do get asked "Alicia, what is 'heavy?'").
For someone who works out regularly with 5 lb weights - graduating to 10lb'ders will force your body to change, adapt, grow - TONE AND TIGHTEN UP. If you use 10 lb weights bring it up 5 pounds for a few sets. Your body adapts - to change it, you have to shake things up.
Yes, keeping less crap in your overall diet and more of the good stuff that your body can "recognize" and process is BIG HUGE part of the whole "get lean and toned" process. The food thing is where I see more people "failing." Because most people LIE TO THEMSELVES. I have seen people that feed their dogs healthier than they feed themselves. Be honest with yourself: is your diet really that tight? Is happy hour keeping your from where you want to be with your bod? And I am NOT TALKING starve yourself. You will never hear those words come out of my mouth. However, I can't sugar-coat that a HUGE majority of what you eat has to be good stuff. REMIND YOURSELF of this when you are reaching for the THIRD SLICE of pie. Do you want MORE PIE or do you wants abs? Do the work. You get out what you put in. Start there. Overly-restrictive diets can set you up to fail. Learn to balance your diet without extremes and deprivation (NOTE: I am NOT talking to you contest folks, that is NOT my arena) -
A lot of fitness is trial and error after you get past the "basics." Once you get where you want to be, how can you push it to the next level to create YOUR BEST BODY and then take a look at yourself and BE HONEST…are you REALLY DOING IT?
Ugh sorry. I'm passing out slowly here. More much later. The 6am "LA wakeup call" is starting to weigh on me a bit LOL. AM x
PHOTO: Through the years I've changed the WAY I workout and eat so that it worked better for MY BODY. Yes I still eat carbs.
….I also did away with the excessive contest/appearance/photoshoot tanning and I don't miss it sorry LOL x

See above: Alicia vs. tonight's "Beyonce'd up" Barbie Alicia Makeup Magick genius Teri Groves did me UP for tonight's #SonsofAnarchy Premiere event -- I don't normally wear a whole lot of #makeup because I'm usually heading to the dance studio or the #gym where makeup is irrelevant. BUT BUT BUT whether it's for a modeling job or for some fun #cosplay -- I absolutely love an excuse just to get "Barbied" up. I actually loved that part of competing -- being a "fitness warrior Barbie" in crystals and heels and big hair for a night or two xo #aliciamariebody #fitness #makeuptransformation #barbie #hair #lovebeyonce #fitspo #beauty #faceup
Trying these #Crest #WhiteStrips.... Heading to an interview in about an hour! Wish me luck! Have a few minutes to kill - kinda obsessed with super white teeth so I decided to finally try these white strip things....have any of you tried them before? Good? This is my second time putting the stickies on...no taste and they don't move. I wouldn't advise eating in them though just because. #smile #whiteteeth #FitSistersBeforeMisters #instaboom #GirlsWhoSquat #health #fitness #Aliciamarie #model #werk #shesquats #abs #AliciaMariebyRogiani #TheBootyBible

Wearing the #O colors -- red and black -- and these lil bikini bottoms look like the bodybuilders when they bust out their back poses!! OK its a stretch maybe .... I've been training legs much harder lately - hitting the wide stance leg press and kick backs....you know what we fitness folks do best...flaunt it !! In case you didnt see my previous post and you want to grab this great Fall color ladies, it's #Wicked by #limecrime @doedeere Also: Tanned this morning - yes beige/darker skinned women have been known to cheat too, don't front!

UGHHH still cleaning my insane closets out to donate niceties to the local women's shelter... NOW -- these freaking jeans are also as old as the hills - but I will NEVERRRR throw them out They aren't booty-showoffable .... or curve-hugging in any way...but I'm so in love with how comfy and soft they are!! They have been with me for 9 years and will remain with my crazt a$$ as long as they don't fall apart... Also - #abspo!! Keep the sugar intake LOW to keep your belly in check, you feel?? The more sugar you consume daily?? The HARDER (impossible) it will be to reach your midsection goals!!! #jeans #fitness #abs #fitnessmodel #comfy #fitspo #motivation #aliciamariebody #instagram #instaboom
According to @GeorgeTakei...if you're a NERD you will "get" this in <5 seconds. MY CONCEPT: I get some of the best ideas from the internetz...thanks! LOL MY REALITY: Buying this alarm clock was NOT one of them. A few weeks ago I posted on FB that I ordered something "potentially" stupid, remember?? Feast your eye sockets. Doesn't "really" work, it's impossible to "set," the sfx are straight circa 1983 (not in a good "Atari" way either) and the thing has a generally "rickety" feeling. Not sure what I was expecting for $30. Pass! Unless you just want a novelty item collecting dust on your nightstand. #SquattrooperisBACKbitches #Fail #Lametastic #shopping#aliciamarie #starwars #squattrooper #fitnessmodel #alicia #instamood #shopping #wtf #nerd #nerdlyfe #geekedout #cosplay
Um, THIS is me all excited that I actual MATCH heading to the gym to do abs today - something that never everrrr happens. #matchymatchy I've been MIA in a grumpy mood because STRESS caused me to break out in hives all over! Not cool. Find positive ways to relax and unwind this weekend, my people! You'd be amazed what stress hormones can do to your body! Also- today is an ABS day for me so flashing some #abspiration -- Just a reminder to stay tuned - I have a quick abs workout coming SOON on @befit w00t! #body #cosplayabs #tryingtorelax #gym #aliciamarie #fitnessmodel #fitnerdsdoitbetter
#LimeCrime #wicked #FreakumFriday Getting into the whole "lipstick" thing - I have never worn lipstick outside of modeling jobs, because I always feel so "done up" and I spend so much time in the gym or heading to the gym...Honest? I usually just grab some gloss or something like Vaseline ... For the Fall I decided to venture out a bit and wear some of the amazing colors from @DoeDeere 's LimeCrime line of #lippies...this one is a deep red velvety blue brick maroon And it doesn't get all over your face or teeth the way dark lipsticks tend to do!!! My nails actually match LOL... Now...if I just had somewhere other than just meetings to go... #tears #AliciaMarieBODY #aliciaMarie #body #makeup #beauty #lipstick #fitness #lips #fitnessmodel #model #werk #blonde #bleachedhaironestepclosertoSTORM #cosplay
See All Alicia Marie
