Okay, it's time to show and tell my progress since I started this getting my body back journey.
Drum rolls pleeease!
This one was taken in April of 2009, 3 months after Roxella's birth.
Almost a year later, February 27, 2010
This was taken 2 days ago.
I'm energized - playing more with my children, going for bike rides, running, weight training and I'm having fun. I'm not keeping my schedule too rigid, nor am I so focused on weight loss. My focus is on being strong, healthy and having fun and in the process I'm loving me and enjoying the journey.
And the weight? It's coming off one day at a time. This time, it stays off! I'm allowing my body to gradually adjust to each new stage and size. I still have a ways to go, but I'm not stressing over it like before. When I find myself getting into stress zone, I shift my thinking and my emotions back to be appreciative of what I've already accomplished. My family's my strong support and really encourage me forward.
Whatever stage you are in your getting your body back journey, keep pressin' forward. You'll reach the finish line.
