My Journey To A Healthy Body & Mind

This has been such an emotional journey. I've rewritten this post more times than I can count. Some parts sound so ridiculous that I have no choice but to laugh at myself. I mean, who cries over nachos? And muffins? And friendships ending that have no end in sight? 

But here I am, three months into the journey to a healthy mind and body. I've attempted to better myself many times before. Nothing has worked and usually, by the second week, I gave up and went back to bad habits. Not this time.

One thing I did differently this time around is to keep my progress a secret. I had no interest in documenting my journey on Instagram, or to post hashtags for accountability, or join any fitness groups. Trust me, it was hard not to share my progress but it was worth the wait! 

This is the result of good nutrition, determination, consistency, and commitment.

"our bodies are capable of anything. it's our minds we have to convince."

I can't thank my husband, who pushed me to do this, and my trainer, who encouraged and motivated me every day, enough. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for them.

You do not need to fall for diet fads, wraps, or drinks that make you magically loose 5 lbs. You'll see instant progress but sadly it's just water weight. There is nothing that proofs you're loosing fat! Over the past three months I've let these types of posts really get to me. It made me feel discouraged. There were so many times I had to tell myself that I'm doing it the right way. I encourage you, too, to do it the right way and find a good support system. These results last :)

I'm not just getting a body out of this but also a stronger mind!

I'm really proud of myself and love my new body.

Week 12

Week 1

I've lost a total of 14 lbs. I did not take measurements or body fat before beginning because I convinced myself that I'll never be one of those people to post a transformation. 

Three months later, this is where I am at:
Weight 146 -- 132 lbs
Chest 33"
Waist 27.25"
Hip 41"
Thigh 23.5"
Body Fat 25%
