Itís hard to believe that itís been only 2 weeks since I have restarted my workouts.
It feels like longer because honestly I feel like doing my workouts is second nature now, I donít feel like I ever stopped.
I was thinking that before I was way too tired to even start working out, I would force a workout and instead of feeling energized I still felt sluggish. Thank you crazy thyroid condition, because I think that has been my issue these past 3 years since my son was born.
I put on some jeans today that were too tight before (no spandex in these jeans folks) and a shirt that was also too tight before and I can actually wear them together. WHAT?!!
I looked at my stomach in the mirror today and I see some definition and I see my skin is getting tighter and less flabby, which makes me super happy. Pregnancy definitely made my stomach all crazy looking and itís nice to see my stomach looking better.
Tracking food is a god send for me. I plan my day without getting all neurotic and it has been helping me so much. I see that typically I have one day a week where I go over and I kind of consider that my day where I can splurge to a small degree and I think that is a-okay. It works for me.
Before I would have a day where I would go over calories and I would freak out and ruin everything by starving myself the next day or just binging. Nope not anymore.
You have to do what works for you, this is working for me. Itís not easy, this whole process is just plain hard. You have to change everything you have done for years, sometimes your whole life and that takes time to adjust to. Itís easy to just eat what I want, but in the long run I know that I will ruin my body. Is it worth it?
Unfortunately this whole life style change isnít just for vanity like before when I was younger (which is fine in my opinion) this time I am doing it for health and vanity (lol).
In a few months I have to go to my doctor and get a few blood tests done and I donít want to hear I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar. No I donít want to hear that crap.
Iím 28 and yes that isnít super young but I am way too young for all of that nasty crap to happen to me.
If I let it happen I would never forgive myself and if doing this helps me look hot, well that is a double A++ hahahaaa.
Seriously though I am pretty proud of myself. My body and I are in sync right now and itís nice to be in control.
One last note: I think itís also important for your sanity and your mind to do what you love. I LOVE photography so today I brought my camera to work and I am doing an impromptu photo shoot with a friend of mine and I am so happy and excited.
Hereís some pictures of my son I took for Valentineís day around the corner. Oh and this is my new puppy Yoshi. :)
