To so many the girl on the right looked just fine. Skinny, not having to worry about what I eat, how often, etc etc. But deep down inside there was so much going on internally that showed through externally. .
I was underweight, referred to as skinny fat, depressed, uncomfortable in my own skin, the smile I wore hid what I was battling internally, I was unhealthy, stressed, my skin was starting to show signs of all the mistakes I had been making with my poor eating habits. .
Something had to change but for 4 years after having Ethan I kept putting it off and off and off. Making excuses after excuse and even telling myself that it just wasn’t in my budget, that I didn’t have time for myself and that was that. I tried so many ways or learning to creat some healthier habits but I had no clue where to begin. .
I tried going to the gym in my lunch break, that last a good month, I tried giving up specific foods just to replace them with no so healthy options, and I couldn’t figure out what I needed to do to make those changes that I needed in order to start living a healthier life for me. .
Until I was introduced to this at home fitness program thing and decided that I was going to take those small baby steps, make small changes and to learn and grow. It def was hard and tough in the beginning because my mindset wasn’t there but I knew I couldn’t keep living the way I was. I wanted to be happy within myself. I wanted to be a better wife, mom, friend and so I had no valid reason to not go all in with this new journey. .
Let’s fast forward 6 years to a woman that is confident, happy, heathy, fit, breaking down barriers that were in my way for years and still on that same journey just with a completely different mindset and out look on life. If only I could go back and tell my 28 year old self to believe in the struggle, believe in yourself and never give up when times get really really hard, that it will all be worth it. But I am thankful for what I have overcome along this journey and the people that I have met along the way and now call my bestest friends. Thankful every day that I decided to take a chance and go for it!!
Perfect, divine and right on time ☀️🔥 If, all of a sudden, your entire life became easy, peaceful, successful, supportive and pleasurable…
all day, every day, rainbows, puppies, sunshine and orgasms…
Firstly, you’d get bored as shit.
Secondly, you’d grow soft… and your ability to deal with any challenges and hurdles would become muted.
Your personal evolution requires a never ending stream of new and exciting challenges to tackle.
These challenges will show up in your health, finances, business, job, relationships, family and social groups… even in your own mind (anxieties, fears etc.) Don’t hate on the challenges. Love them. They’re helping you grow into the person you’re becoming.
Each time a new challenge shows up on my doorstep or in my inbox, I like to say “Great! A new challenge to dominate. It’s perfect, divine and right on time.”
