I was the queen of starting and stopping.
Start a new program. Gung ho. Super motivated. Buy a cute new workout outfit, maybe new workouts shoes, determined to make this time DIFFERENT than that last. I’d start workouts, start cutting calories because that’s how I lost weight. After a week or two, I felt terrible and deprived, I’d binge and quit.
It would take me weeks, sometimes even months to get back on track.
I was an all or nothing mentality and full of excuses why I couldn’t or shouldn’t.
Once I found other mamas with muscles (mamas who were living healthier and encouraging one another)… I realized:
- I could live fit and strong (F being skinny and miserable).
- I didn’t have to do this alone.
- I could do this WITH my family getting healthy right along with me.
- This is a beautiful and messy journey of learning, making mistakes, falling off, coming back stronger, self discovery & growth. That’s what makes it so beautiful.
