Sometimes I let my body affect me more than it should, some mornings I can be bloated and retaining fluid and I'll tell myself I'm not as lean as I'd like to be and there will always be parts of my body I'd like to improve but looking back on pictures to see how far I've come not only in the last 6 months but the last 4-5 years since I stepped into the gym helps me to realize that mentally, physically and emotionally I am a completely different person, strengthened by life's adversities.
Last year though I did take some time away from the gym to screw my head on right as I was dealing with some difficult life situations. I let my diet slip too, losing that precious muscle and strength I'd worked so hard for and gained a slightly curvier figure. It was time much needed for my thoughts and mind to refresh and re evaluate everything and everyone in my life. I'm still not where I want to be but I am a hell of a lot closer now than I was last year. Strength and muscle has increased again, I've lost the extra pud I gained last year and I am equipped with a healthier, happier mindset than ever before. I am constantly a work in progress and that's okay. 👍🏻 Life gets hard sometimes, it's okay to take time to yourself to recharge and gain a better perception on life, just remember how far you've come and how much more room there is for growth because some of your best moments haven't even happened yet. 💕 Thats what I tell myself anyway, end of my little ramble, much love, Goodnight all. 😴 #workinprogress #powerlifting #conjugatestrong #battleofthemind #healthymindset
