🔥I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me 🔥
The past few weeks have been very testing for me but I definitely feel like the fog is starting to lift. This past week I’ve been training and eating well but before that I was pretty much eating whatever I felt like and not training at all. There were more than a few moments where I felt like I had regressed and lost all my progress. But when I see these photos I’m reminded that a few weeks off can’t ruin the progress I’ve achieved over the past few years.
Since the photo on the left was taken, I’ve had more setbacks with my health and fitness than I care to remember. There’s been substantial weight gain with my pregnancy (25+ kilos), periods of poor nutrition, a raft of health issues, miscarriages, anxiety, depression and long periods without exercise or physical activity. But through it all I’ve always been determined to get back to a place where my health, fitness and happiness are a priority. And while progress has been slow due to the setbacks, it’s still progress.
There will be times that you get knocked down and it will be tempting to give up but you must persevere. You are worth the effort. Remember why you started. Don’t give up, find a way ❤️
