Tummy progress! 3 months post-op!

The first picture: Before surgery, June 2014.

SOOOO incredibly pleased with everything. Could not have asked for a better surgeon or a better recovery..

Don’t get me wrong,I still critique my body and wish for things like a nicer butt (working on that next, I swear!!!) But right in this very moment.. I’m on top of the world.

This morning (like every morning after a workout, before my shower) I just find myself literally dancing in front of the mirror butt naked and flexing and posing. NOT because I’m “skinny” (gah, I even hate that word!!!) but because I have worked damnnnn hard to sculpt myself into a woman I’m finally confident in.

And this is just the beginning of a journey to continue toning and sculpting the body I used to only be able to imagine myself having.

Everyday is a chance to make yourself proud! And I promise, everyday counts..

Happy Tuesday!!!!!!!!

For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over again.

It’s important to make friendships that are deeper than gossiping and drinking and smoking and going out.

Make friends who you can go get breakfast with, make friends you can cry with, make friends who support your life goals and believe in you.

Happy Monday!

Hi guys!

I hope that you all have a beautiful start to the week!

& remember, there’s so many benefits to starting the week off right so make time and get your heart pumping today!

Even if you don’t have time to get in a workout, just doing a simple 10 burpees and 10 push-ups is gonna make a difference.

I believe in all of you and am trying to follow back as much as I can, I love seeing all the progress on my dash! 

Lunch was delightful! My favorite: 
Egg white omelet with veggies, feta cheese, and salsa!
Oatmeal was cooked with chia and flax seeds, half a banana, blueberries, a spoonful of peanut butter and topped with shave dark chocolate! And a cup of the most delicious pumpkin flavored coffee!

Exercise because it feels good. Exercise because it makes you happy.

Don’t exercise because you’re terrified that you ate too much for dinner. Don’t exercise because you hate the way your body looks in the mirror.

Loving yourself will get you so much further than hating yourself.

So I'm trying be healthy for my son(I want my son to grow up healthy)& loose weight but I'm just so overwhelmed & confused by all the information on the Web that I was hoping you could give me some advice as to where to start what to eat & excersise

The first thing would should start by doing is decide that no matter what, you are NOT giving up because you want this not just to be a role model for your son but because you want this for yourself.

Start with evaluating your lifestyle habits (including nutrition).

How often do you eat out? How often do you cook homemade meals? How often are you left wanting to pig out cause you have gone long periods without eating (i.e. at work)? Start with pinterest-do some research and try something new and healthy to make.. I don’t know how old he is but maybe incorporate your son so it makes it that much more fun..

—I recently found how to use spaghetti squash as pasta and am OBSESSED.. so good instead of pasta in chicken alfredo.. so theres an idea!

Just start by this: write 3 health/fitness related goals for yourself that are relatively short-term (i.e. run a mile without stopping). Write these 3 goals out on a board displayed in your house for everyone to see, to hold you accountable. And make it your mission.. your priority.. to accomplish them. And once you do (which I am telling you right now, if you want it bad enough you will meet them all) you can mark a huge, proud check mark next to those goals.. for you and your son to see!

Good luck!!!!!
