Three weeks down.
Getting my booty up and going on my workouts has been more of a challenge, as of late. But, once I'm going - I'm golden. And sweaty.
Why I'm lacking motivation recently? I really can't say because I have been really happy with the progress I've made in these three short weeks. My goal had two parts - one, to lose the weight I was hanging onto, and two, to tone up. I'm happy to say I've achieved both. Although, I still have some work to do with the latter. Baby steps, people.
I have never been (and will never be) a teeny-tiny-skinny-mini. I'm just not built that way. I have athletic meat on these bones that seems to be permanently affixed to the old bod. Even though I still have work to do (and one more week of personal butt kicking before this challenge is over!), I feel comfortable in my skin again... My new mama skin. The scale may say I'm back at my pre-pregnancy weight - but my body is different. And I'm OK with that. I feel like I subconsciously had to be OK with it before I knew I was ready to become a mama.
Next week I'll share my before and after pictures. It may take a cocktail (or two) before I get up the guts to publish that post - but I hope it will be proof and motivation for others that you can make the positive changes you want to see in your body. The physical changes in my body are second to the changes in how I feel about myself. I'm proud for accomplishing my workouts, feeling healthier, and feeling stronger. Seeing my body change and bounce back is really just icing on the cake.
The really good, cream cheese icing.
