For Irina Solomonova, love is looking after your body.
"Okay lol these are not the best after gym photos but it was so hard for me to share them," Irina wrote, "but also so proud of my body & making little choices that just help me feel better inside & out."
Elaborating further, the 26-year-old explained that she opted to post the images to celebrate the progress she's made since committing herself to a workout regimen.
"I found those photos a few days ago and I was like, 'Oh my gosh,'" Irina explained. "I didn't even realize how much my body changed, and I'm so proud of myself. I honestly just started working out continually about three months ago, and I do the absolute least amount of cardio, but my biggest thing was I just want to stay consistent."
Irina, who appeared on the reality show's season four, recalled feeling like she never knew what to do at the gym, or even going "hard for like day, and then I don't go for weeks."
Adding that she just needed "to find something that is super easy and not super exhausting and that I could just do every single day," Irina revealed her gym secret: a 12-3-30 workout.
As for what a 12-3-30 entails? The workout includes setting a treadmill to an incline of 12, adjusting the speed to three miles and then walking for 30 minutes.
"I just do that and I still hold the handlebars," Irina said. "But I just feel so, so much better. And even though it's like a small change, I feel so much better inside and out."
