In my quest to eat clean, lift mean, and live lean….I’ve come across some pretty awesome people that have helped me tremendously. This photo is one I pull up often when I want to remind myself that there are no limits to what I can achieve and my biggest obstacle is only myself. I’m trying really hard to eat clean. That’s the last and hardest leg of my journey. My daughter is now 2 and I’m not back to my prebaby weight yet. I often get discouraged but I see pictures of what I can do when I put my mind to it and I push forward. One day at a time. One meal at a time.
I’m doing a 12 week online challenge (against no one, just a personal challenge) and am currently on week 4. This is the fist week that I have actually eaten clean all the way through. Protein, lean meat, green salads/veggies, the whole nine. It feels great. I’m supper proud of my progress this week. While I’ve been more than tempted to reach for the bad foods, I’ve stuck it out and the reward is sweet!
This week alone my waist line is looking trimmer, my arms are toning up, and my legs are getting serious definition.
I’m not looking to be a bodybuilder or anything along those lines. I simply want to reach a happy place where I know I’m the best ME. I’m a step closer everyday. Whew! Feels good to have come this far. This is my lifestyle now. I workout everyday, plan my meals, and when I lay down at night…I feel proud of my hard work.
Sure some days I’m so sore I can barely walk, but I stretch and hit it again. HAM! My body is slowing changing. WOW that feels good. Since eating is the hardest, I’m taking the time to plan so I can succeed. I’m prepared and therefore I’m not likely to fall into the temptation had I not had all my healthy items ready to go. Healthy choices::healthy life!
