Let’s talk all things TRANSFORMATION.
I can’t even count the number of times I’ve quit on my own health journey.
Starting and stopping.
Seeing NO visible results, getting frustrated and going back to old habits.
These pictures are 80 days apart. The one of the left was taken on August 2nd this summer in PEI (the same day we lost and found Lola 🙈 who jumped out of the van to pee while we were stopped at a grocery store).
I remember asking my husband to please take a couple pictures of me and Hunter. I honestly didn’t want to be “that” mom who had no pictures of her and her babe together because, she felt fat.
2 weeks later something HUGE shifted for me. I was FINALLY finished with letting myself down.
No more of this CANCELLING on myself first, business.
No more EXCUSES around why it was going to be hard to sacrifice some foods I was addicted to.
I knew I needed to start.
It was my time to take back control and to treat this body with the respect it deserved.
To also not QUIT when it got hard but to do the emotional work at the same time.
Something I’ve never EVER done before.
And this was my result.
What a difference not only in my body (as you can see) but in my mind, spirit & emotional body as well.
Guys, it is NOT easy. This has been a daily struggle and requires daily action/commitment from me.
There are days that are challenging. Especially when I’ve been up all night with a teething babe.
I wake up wanting to drink a pot of coffee and eat pancakes with tons of syrup.
But then what?
I will have not only have let myself down again but will feel mad as myself all day and be grumpy from the sugar crash.
Ain’t nobody got time for that! With a little person around that needs your attention and you to be your best self.
This is just one of the many reasons why I’m staying the course. I’m committed to becoming the best version of myself right NOW.
NOT when things are easier.
Because, that day never comes.
and It’s NOW or NEVER.
I’m so focused on becoming that gal I’ve always known I was on the inside. I’ve just been too afraid to officially commit to myself.
What would happen if I said I was going to do it and I failed?
What would people think/ say?
NOW I’m not concerned about anyone else, but how I feel about ME.
PLUS I’ve failed so many times I’m kind of a pro at it. But this time I’m doing the work and not quiting.
Setting mySELF free.
Isn’t it easier to give up on ourselves then it is to actually commit and follow through?
Where are you QUITTING on yourself right now?
