Throwback Thursday


20131107-174147.jpg

This is a hard TBT, but I am sharing this one again as reminder that we all start somewhere!  This was taken about a year ago, I think I was 30 days postpartum.

I am now a year PP and don’t look much different.  I am starting to embrace that “mommy-body” rather than hating it.  And I am working on changing it rather than accepting it.

Motivation Monday


scale

I saw this on Pinterest yesterday, and it really spoke to me.  I’ve been checking in on the scale and it is sadly going the exact opposite way that I want it to.  So I made a decision…

I am not getting back on it for 60 days.

It makes me sad when I do, and then I just beat myself up.  So the scale and I are going to take some time apart.  I want to re-focus my energy on other things, and I am not going to let it control my feelings anymore.

Happy Monday!

Workout Wednesday – Get ready to sweat!
