Consistency is KEY ✨
I did not wake up one day, feeling so healthy and strong that I decided it was time to start taking better care of myself. Quite the opposite.
The difference this time around, compared to every other time? I wasn’t looking for a quick fix. I was looking to transform. Not only did I need to start taking better care of my health for ME, but now I had a little one to think about, too. Eating well and exercising is a small price to pay to stay healthy for my baby girl. 💕
Was it easy to start? Definitely NOT. Just getting started was the most difficult part. But I had a solid group of ladies cheering me on. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Checking in with me to keep my mind in the right place. Because deep down, I was scared of being judged for trying to become a healthier version of myself (crazy, right?!). And always thinking, I’ve never been able to do this before, I can’t do this now.
BUT after a couple of weeks, I started to feel stronger. I started to feel a little bit healthier. I started to realize I truly could do this. Clean eating and exercise were just the beginning. I started to focus on personal development, too. I started to seek wellness, to grow as a person from the INSIDE.
It’s so amazing that since October (after I recovered from a c-section AKA MAJOR ABDOMINAL SURGERY), I have completed 3 challenge groups using home workout programs. And as of today, I have completed FIVE WHOLE WEEKS of a brand new, 80 day program (& I’m going to FINISH IT!). I did not think it was possible to feel this well, inside and out! I’ve gained so much confidence, made new friends, FOUND MY HAPPY. Taking care of myself means I can be a better wife & mom for my little family. 💕
It didn’t happen overnight, and it didn’t come easy, but now that I’ve made this a habit, a LIFESTYLE, you won’t catch me stopping. 💪🏻 “Whether you think you CAN or you think you CAN’T, you’re right.” #health #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #wellness #postpartumjourney #postpartumfitness #postpartumhealth #moments #momlife #change #bethechange #empoweringwomen #empowerment #inspiration #saturdayselfie #saturdayvibes
