Motivational Monday!

Well, a new week is here! How did your weekend go?

Did you keep the bad foods away?
Did you get in your workouts?

If not, guess what??? IT'S OKAY!

Setbacks happen, trust me....over the weekend I finally hit a huge milestone in my weight loss journey, 80lbs......Gone! Like, it's crazy to even think that I weighed 255lbs and yes, I had just had a baby but I wasn't healthy, I wasn't eating right & I sure has hell wasn't working out. I ballooned to that weight and it didn't just come off after delivery.....I've had to work my ass off the last 17mos. Some days were easy, others not so much...but it's those hard days that show me what I'm made of.
As much as 80lbs is a big deal, I've been trying to not think of it very much. I find that if I dwell too much on how good I feel, I become complacent....comfortable in my own skin and then I tend to plateau so I'm happy but moving if the weekend wasn't good to you, I always say that it's a new week, just start again. And if you had an excellent weekend, don't get comfortable! Try a new class or add weights to your existing workout...try a new recipe....whatever it take to keep you going forward.

You can do it!

*My 6yr old daughter loves Winnie the Pooh and this quote is one of my favorites and ties in nicely to what I deal with a lot.
"...there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."
