I don’t usually post pictures of myself because that’s not my thing. I have a bad case of bitch face even when I try to smile. My photos look like mugshots… I’m just not good at the picture thing lol.
BUT, I realize that those of you reading my blog probably wonder what the hell I look like and what my transformation has been like. So here is what the past 6 months have looked like for me.
In the picture on the left I had an 8 month old son and was a stay at home mom. The picture on the right was yesterday, now that I am a mom to a 1 year old, have a full time job, I’m a grad student, I am more consistent with my blog and am still a wife.
You know what the difference is? I decided to take control of my life. It wasn’t just about transforming my body, but about transforming my life.
I stopped eating like shit all the time. I stopped letting my husbands eating decisions have an impact on mine. I started dedicating 30 minutes a day to exercise with no excuses. I didn’t stalk the scale. I took pride in victories like becoming more flexible and having better endurance.
Seeing the positive in everything changed my perspective, allowed me to take my time and let my body do it’s thing.
I still have goals, I’m still not where I want to be- but I’m sure as hell a lot happier than I was 6 months ago! And because of that, I’m a better mom, wife, student, and employee.
