Facebook threw up a ‘memory’ today! 👀
Sometimes you’d rather forget some of the ones they choose but....today’s was the first time I dared show my progress photos (aka me in pants) a year ago! 😳
I’ve learnt not to be so bothered about showing flesh since then, and as much as aesthetically I have changed it’s been a complete mental shift too.
Working with a pt at the beginning who made me take progress shots was a bit daunting at first as I wasn’t exactly a fan of myself. But I’m so pleased to have a visual diary of how my body has changed and adapted.
These photos are just under 2 years apart from top to bottom! Maybe not as dramatic as they could be but I’m happy with where I’m at. 🙌🏻 I’ve been consistent and followed what’s been set for me. I’ve eaten a lot of food and re-educated myself in many ways. And I’m bloody stronger than I ever was! 💪🏻 I never started out with a plan, other than I wanted things to change which they have.
What I’ve wanted in regards to training has also changed, with where I am in my personal life but also with knowing how much more capable my body is, than I’ve in the past given it credit for.
It’s fair to say that at 40 I’m in the best shape physically and mentally than I’ve ever been. And that’s totally worth being thankful for!! 🙌🏻💁🏼♀️💪🏻 Apologies to anyone bothered by my oversharing! 🤔🙌🏻
