It's been a loooong while since I've posted, and most people have no clue this blog exists. I spent quite a bit of time debating on starting a new blog, or leveraging this one. After many arguments with myself, I've decided to resurrect it, modify it, and begin to document my progress from post-baby bod to beach-bod...or at least a bod I don't mind walking around half naked on a beach with. So, here it goes...
Many of you who've known me for a long time, know that I've always been chubby. Until about 6 years ago, I'd gotten fed up with feeling uncomfortable and insecure all the time. I'd pushed past my heaviest. Clothes didn't fit. I was miserable. It clicked that the only way I was going to become happy, healthy, and confident was if I put in the effort and determination and did it myself. No one could do this for me.
So, I began a journey on my own of health and fitness that got me to a 50 lb weight loss. I was happier, more comfortable, and more confident than I'd ever been in my entire life. I maintained this weight loss until I became pregnant...
I rapidly gained weight for a total 50 lb pregnancy weight gain, far surpassing my max weight goal. I felt anxious during and after baby if I'd be able to lose the weight. I'm older and have less time to focus on my health, so thought for sure I wouldn't be able to lose it and I'd have to buy a whole new wardrobe I didn't feel comfortable in.
So, I decided I needed to tackle this with a full arsenal. I needed to add some tools to my toolbox. After thinking about it for nearly a year, I committed to become a Beachbody Coach. It encompasses all the practices I followed the first time around, but adds in so many tools to keep me accountable and on track...that way I'm not having to come up with tracking, scheduling, recipes, etc. on my own.
As uncomfortable as it is to put myself out there and share my weight loss story, I'm sharing a before pic from 2011 and after pic from 2013.
Also, here's a pic of me and Saylor opening my Beachbody Challenge pack. I'm too excited about it, so I had to add it in. It's like Christmas!
So, here's to being accountable! I'll be sharing videos of my workouts like my VERY first Beachbody workout, recipes, nutrition information, tips, all things wellness.
