Sketches - 2017 to 2018
I think with the drawing improvements, comes how I view myself in the last almost year of T
Or the last year in general. I’m so different and yet I’m exactly who I need to be right now.
I have so much to improve on, and while this year was one of the worst years of my life, it was also the best year of learning about myself. The trials I went through, losing people i thought would never walk away from me. I’ve learned that I’m so much stronger than I ever thought. That I have my own back. And when I don’t, I have a mom who even though she didn’t birth me, loves and cares about me just the same. I have siblings who even though we fight, they love me unconditionally. I’ve met people moving to Washington and then moving back to New York that I’m so lucky to have met. That have helped me so much and have cared for me so deeply. People I’m so glad I call my friends.
I just know 2019 is going to be better. It has to be. Out of everything I went through this year, the only way I can go is up. As cheesy as that is. .... .... .... ..... #artcomparison #yeardifference #art #sketch #drawing #selfportrait #ftm #transgender #lgbtqartist
I know it’s only December 4th, but I was going through my Instagram and found the first picture I took of myself of this year. And wow it kind of blew my mind how much I had changed. So I wanted to post that pic with a more recent pic of me because personally I thought it was pretty neat. This last year I became so much healthier mentally and finally felt ok with fully encompassing who I am outwardly as well as internally. If you’d like to share your beginning and end of the year selfies please do!

A year ago I wasn't even a "runner" on the left I loved my nights out and wine. On the right a fully obsessed runner.
I forget sometimes that I've only been doing this running thing 7 months officially. I only brought my first running watch 6 months ago and in the space of 6 months I've ran in 5 races. 1 of which I won,another where I came 1st female and the others were all Pb's except 1 race where I just blew up 🤣👍
Now a 20 something minute 5k runner ,sometimes I forget how new it all is still for my body, I'm not comparing myself to someone who's been running 5 or 6 years or someone younger or even older than me. I'm taking it all in ,enjoying the journey and excited for what the future holds for me and my running feet. .

A year ago today she was quietly sleeping on my chest, almost always in my arms. Now she is literally running around the house full of life and big personality soaking up everything around her amd constantly learning. I just cant believe how fast everything is moving. Maybe its cliche but i need my baby to SLOW down.

Thanksgiving 2017 and Thanksgiving 2018! 😋
In both of the pictures she is eating pie and she is wearing the same little polka dot jumper for both Turkey days!
Timehop at its finest again. #Left
is 1 year ago. My fingers were bigger, I was a bigger size ring also. #Right
is today. My hands are back to normal. My rings are an upgrade (bc I have an awesome hubby) and a smaller size! I feel like I was tanner then but today I’m healthier!!! It’s amazing what has changed in a year. I looked at timehop and the turmoil I had a year ago and today I’m at peace with a lot of it. I’m a better person today than I was a year ago! I can only keep improving, mind and body! #HereIsToAnotherWonderfulYearAhead #Timehop #YearDifference #KetoWOE #KetoWOL #KeepCalmAndKetoOn #Blessed
Trust me, I get it:
The girl on the left - IS the same girl as the one on the right - only its ONE year almost to the day apart...... & a totally different mindset.
The girl on the left knew what it felt like to smile for a picture but wishing & thinking at the same time it was over. She knew what its like to feel frustrated and disgusted when trying to get dressed in the morning and hated everything she owned because she felt so uncomfortable in her own skin. She knew what not making yourself a priority and fueling your body properly felt and looked like, and neglected these things for a long time.
So what's changed!? well... I have found a fit fam of AMAZING ladies who motivate and inspire me every single day. A positive group of people who are uplifting and support me with my health, nutrition and life goals.
Like minded people who honestly want to see you in a happier, healthier life, as well as themselves.
The girl on the right now reads personal development, which is something I wouldn't of spent time on in the past or even really knew what it was..but now it's a MUST & its helping the way I view things in all aspects of my life.
I now feel like there are people in my life that are irreplaceable. Life long friends who I'll continue on this journey with. Support each other through the good and the bad & celebrate our successes together.
It's the time to live a life of balance & happiness. A life with new and exciting opportunities. •

Please never give up on the things you love ❤️
I can’t believe that this is the difference in a year 😳 I look back at how I was and felt this time last year, and it is the complete opposite of how I feel now. I did not feel confident at all and I was not in a good mental state; 2nd year of Uni was SO difficult! It was not even the work, it was actually the social aspect. As a result, I was eating a lot of junk food because I felt stressed, but I wasn’t training; I was kidding myself to think I could get away with eating so much and not put weight on 🤦🏾♀️ I didn’t really enjoy training like I did before - I felt as if it was a chore, which is unusual for me! A year on and I am SO happy with when I am right now ✨ I am glad I took the time to focus on training in the Summer, and I found my love for fitness again ❤️ I have been trying to maintain at Uni, which has been easier than I thought it would be ✨ I feel better mentally and I also have my energy back! However, I do tend to doubt myself quite a bit, but who doesn’t?! It’s normal! It’s amazing how much focus you can have if you put your mind to something 💪🏾 I’m so ready for my holiday in 4 weeks and I didn’t think I would be saying that this time last year! ✈️🥂 #yeardifference #transformation #uni #unfit #notconfident #mentalstate #yearon #moreenergy #training #fitness #cleaneating #plantbased #universitylife #lifestyle #maintainingweight #preholidaybody #hotpodyoga #lesmills #bodybalance #bodyattack #bodystep #bodypump #gym #liss #hiit #walking #weights #absworkout
