It’s Thursday evening and I’m sitting in front of the computer watching the cursor blink. I have such a desire to write more but I don’t know what to say. I know the more wine I consume while sitting here the words will start flowing. Hopefully.
I’ve started two different posts so far. One about the house and the other about the awful events of the past weekend. It became a bit heavy. So instead I am doing a quick fitness update of sorts.
So I started getting serious about my journey April 25th. I have missed a couple weeks from our move but I am starting to get back into my groove while getting my diet back on track.
I didn’t think I would do this but here are my before pics. Don’t mind the darkness or the clothes. This is our small room we had while staying at my father in laws.
I’m suppose to take the after photos this Monday but I haven’t been consistent with my 8 weeks so on July 1st expect some updated pics. AND hopefully we see a difference (I know we will). When I first started I wanted the most amazing abs and legs to show off. I’m slowly learning that may not be realistic but you know what GOOD.
When I was younger I had an eating disorder. I was never hospitalized but I knew what limiting my calories would give me, the “perfectly skinny” body. Everyday is a small battle, some less than others, but I’ve learned that is not how I want to earn my abs. Food journals and probably the worst was chewing my food then spitting it out. You get the taste but don’t actually consume all the bad…. I’m disgusted with myself.
I’m loving the Tone It Up community so much. If I ever have a moment of weakness I can write a quick status update and there are so many gals encouraging me. They remind me the work outs and 5 meals daily are highly needed to fuel my body. I love being part of something that is women encouraging each other instead of bringing each other down.
Well that got a bit deeper than I intended but once the words start flowing I can’t stop. I just want to put a part of my story out there in hopes of helping someone else.
Hope you have great weekend. I’ll be back with a fun update of my Saturday night debauchery come Monday. **insert winky face**
