I know it's not Transformation Tuesday or anything like that (IDGAF) but I wanted to share my "fitness" story and where I've been vs where I'm at today.
2013 (1st pic) - I decided I was sick of being uncomfortable in my own skin and I hit the gym. 6 days a week, 60 minutes of Stairmaster and then I eventually found the weight room (praise Oprah 🙌🏻).
2014 (2nd pic) I was in the best shape of my life - I felt great and I looked hot AF. But I was also using the gym as a source to channel my anxiety into, and really limiting myself food-wise - the willpower with me at that point was 100%. Read: not really enjoying LIFE.
2016 (3rd pic) I've gained back all the weight I lost, lost all my muscle gains, and am starting back at square one. But at least this time I know what the hell I'm doing. I took 2015 off from cardio and then 2016 has been a fucking free-for-all when it comes to food. CANT DO THAT. Can't do either of that. I've rid my life of anxiety-causing things and people, and I've got my head on straight. I don't like to call it "starting over" because life has ebbs and flows, and shit happens, and that's okay. We make mistakes, trip and stumble, but we're human. There's like 7 billion of us - and not one is "perfect".
