This smile can hide quite a bit.
*Disclaimer: this post is not for compliments or anything like that** The next few photos show just a portion of my fitness/health journey (the past 2 months actually) I have yo-yo'd through my health.
My life. My health. My journey since about 2013/2014.
At one point, I was in shape and happy in my skin (that was a beautiful spring). 🤣
Then, I went through a very rough patch. I lost someone dear to me and it was like I had to figure out myself again. I turned to alcohol and late nights to help numb my pain. I worked out, but I rarely ate as well as I should have.
I grew quite a bit in that summer. I ended up meeting my now husband at the end of it. I still felt like I wasn't good enough. My jean sizes were going up and I wasn't pleased with how I was looking.
I moved and spent a majority of the time working overnights, partying still and eating like utter shit-ola. Fast forward to a couple years later, May of that year we found out we were expecting.....now my body image definitely was thrown for a loop.
Little man came into the world and out went anything that meant I was selfish or what-have-you. I put myself last and everyone else first. I'm coming up on my little one's 2nd birthday and I've finally gotten to the point where I understand that I can't be the best momma, wife, daughter, sister, etc., if I don't be "selfish" once in a while or hell every day.
So, I'm selfish, every day. I push my body to the limit. Pushing my body means pushing my mind too.
Get rid of the people that bring the negativity to your life and tell you that it's not okay to be "selfish", because giving yourself a half hour in your day to get sweaty and be the best you.
If you're still reading then...... I'm always willing to help someone on their journey no matter where they're at. Some encouraging words, a workout buddy or just a person to vent to.
