Obviously a little different angles but whatever. 🤷🏻♀️
The second photo was senior year of high school. I had been working out hard for hours at a time, around 5 days a week, and ate healthy for the most part, but would "give up" on the weekends or toward the end of the week, and eat excessive amounts of anything and everything. I would get to the point of being!completely stuffed, and I would continue to stuff my face with food. The more I ate, the more I craved more food. I was stuck in a "I'll start over Monday" mindset, and had a terrible relationship with food.
The first photo was last fall. I still workout hard, consistently every day for less than an hour a day, and I follow a meal plan I am able to stick with. I'm not perfect with it but I've found something I can fit into my life as a healthy habit rather than yo-yoing through the week. •
For anyone who cares, this is maybe about an 8lb difference, but who's counting?? 🤘🏼 This is NOT a weight transformation post!
The real transformation has been my mindset. Before, I was working out to lose weight. I was focusing on the scale and focusing on having to be perfect because I hated my body. It was overwhelming and stressful and honestly got me further from my goals •
Now, I workout and eat healthy food I love because it makes me feel amazing! It makes me happier, more positive, and confident. I don't feel the pressure to "diet" or workout. Now, I eat healthy because I know it makes me feel good, and I want to workout! I stopped focusing on the scale, and started focusing on becoming the happiest healthiest version of me, no matter what that looked like. •
I still have a lot of work to do on my mindset, but it is a work in progress.
Now, I workout because I love my body. Not because I hate it.
