2012 i was already a mother of 3 children. I loved my body even if it had stretch marks and flaccidity i never felt bad to have it. I didnt know about diets or exercise, i had very little interest about it more on nutrition. 2013 My body began to change in a way that i didnt like. I gained weight, my self-esteem is coming down; I did almost nothing to change. Yes i will go for a run for cardio 1-3 week and more then 1 month doing nothing. 2015 i started running 1K, 5K and more with and without weight on ankles some home exercise. I was more constant in what i was doing, i care of my food more then before . 2016 Then i started to see changes maybe few but for me they mean alot. I wanted to see more changes so i saw videos of @michelle_lewin @leanmachine21 @jessicaarevalo beautiful women, successful and dedicated to a world unknown to me that is FITNESS. 2017 They inspire me to do more. As i wanted more i knew i had to do more so for the first time i went to the GYM. I didn't know what to do where and how to start. That didn't stop me so i start reading a book (my first book lol) it help me to take my first steps to the GYM. Today i see myself and i am in LOVE not with what my body looks like but what I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO.
I bought my first car yesterday!! For years I was in a relationship with someone who discouraged me from taking risk, for doing things on my own, and growing in to a confident person. Well guess what!? I have a successful carrier, a loving boyfriend and family who encourages me to fight for what I want, and I'm strong and independent. There is no better feeling than knowing you can do anything you want. #Godisgood#feelingsuccessful#proudofmyself#lifeisgood#Thankful#boughtmyfirstcar#illshowyou
Just ran in D.C. with a coworker and O.M.G. did it kick my a&$!!!! Best cardio workout to date; checkout that heart rate ring!! 16% spent in extreme zone, and even after sitting for a bit my heart rate is still 96 lol. I went so hard I didn't even have time to take a beautiful pic of the scenery. Proud of myself, and for choosing a healthy workout on a work trip. 👏👏👏 PS working out with somebody else pushes me; I need to explore this phenomenon.
Hands up I must admit I'm not very good at setting goals. Something I need to work on. Yes, I do have things I would like and even need. I write them on a list but I don't have a plan of action or time frame. And these are just as important as the goal itself.
Well today I'm very proud of myself.
One of my goals was blinds for my house. It may not seem like a big goal to some but to me as a single mum this was huge. Blinds have been at the top of my goal list for just over a year but no deadline. Every month I would be no where near to getting them and every month I would look at my goal list and be disappointed still no blinds. My goals were more of a wish list than something to work towards. 4 months into my new business and realising that my goals may actually be achievable and now today getting them fitted. £500 for 4 sets of blinds. I did it and I can't stop looking at them.
For one, because I love them but for another because every time I look at them I can see what I have achieved and I feel so proud of myself. Now to work on my next one.
