Okay fitties.. I couldn’t wait till Sunday to share a transformation photo haha! ❤️ this is my progress from September 2018 to just the other day! Sometimes I feel that I’m not making progress- that is why taking photos every step of your journey is SO HELPFUL! I’m so embarrassed to share the picture on the left, but hey that was me! I am so proud of myself and I will still take a progress update photo for the four weeks of doing BBG!
Do you take progress photos?! 💕 ...
Same pants – completely different person 💝
6 months ago I was so upset with the way I felt, the way I looked and all around pretty darn depressed.
I decided to commit to myself, my health and make a change for ME!
I joined a group of like-minded ladies that were all on their own journeys and I haven’t looked back!
Has it been easy every day? ➡️ No
Have I strayed a little off my nutrition plan the odd day? ➡️ Yes
Have I given up on my WHY? ➡️ NO!
Even when I have hard, stressful days and I feel like resorting back to my ‘emotional eating’ patterns, I have the mindset and strength to make better choices and keep myself on track. 👌
And the days that I treat myself 🍰, I don’t feel guilty or punish myself about it. Or have the thoughts of ‘Oh I already ruined my day, I might as well keep going’. 🙅♀️
That’s my old ‘all or nothing’ mindset which never ended well!
Days like today I feel grateful that I have kept going and so can you! 💕
Throw back Thursday to my leg progress using @kayla_itsines BBG program from the @sweat app ❤️. As I said before, I love love love progress pictures !! They help motivate me so much because they remind me what I am capable of, regardless of what the scale says!
Do you take progress pictures ?! 💕 ...
🤔When you think about health and fitness goals I bet “fat loss” is the first thing that comes to mind. There’s so much more that can be offered from a fit and healthy lifestyle than just losing weight... how about:
✅Improved athletic ability
✅Improved heart health
✅Improved immune system
✅Improved flexibility and balance
When I first started my journey, I was a slave to the scale. I focused on that “number,” and those areas of stubborn fat thinking that hours of cardio and some arbitrary “goal weight” was the way to get lean and be confident.
Once I changed my focus to building muscle and BEING STRONG 💪🏻 that all changed. Lifting weights gave me a sense of real accomplishment and empowerment. Being strong has shown me how capable my body is of doing things I could never have imagined. Most important, I’ve never been more confident even though that number on the scale has gone up ❤️
I’m curious (or a bit nosey), what heath and fitness goals are you working towards?
