So it has been a little more than three weeks and I feel great. I am starting to see some change in my face and my body. I still have a long ways to go on this journey and I am fighting cravings with carbs. Doing Freelee's challenge has been helpful these past four days...accountability goes a long way for me.
On the GREaT side I am signed up for a mini triathlon for August 18th with a friend. I am totally pumped about doing this. Not only am I signed up but I am also training about 3 times a week. I am currently working out 4/5 times a week which is crazy from what my activity level was just a month ago. I actually decided to go for a run the other day just to avoid cleaning the house. My husband said he was so proud of me.
I can see little changes but the biggest changes have been in my attitude and also my thinking. It is amazing how far positivity goes...and how simple it truly is. BUT much harder to live it out each day and to continue to change the diapers, prepare food, pay the bills and still look in the mirror and see how much farther there is to go and remain steadfast that my goals ARE achievable. I have to keep reminding myself that I am not going to look perfect overnight and that this is about longterm health-not just about wearing a bikini for the first time (hopefully next summer :) That is why I took this picture and wanted to share it--because I see a different me now. And I am going to keep fighting for this side of me to be strong and vibrant and lovely--a healthy, confident me.
Someday when I have more confidence and there has been more change I will post pics of my body. But until then....I am proud to be coming up on almost a month:) also-these shots were taken from video so they are a little wonky.
