Anyway, I wanted to give you a photo update on my weight loss. I haven't posted any progress pictures in a long time because people I actually know read this blog now and apparently that scares me! I stopped sharing stuff I used to because I have to look these people in the eyes (or on facebook...same thing)! After reading through some of my old posts, I noticed that I promised to update a lot more with pictures so I thought I better get started on it. Plus, I kind of use this blog as a journal of sorts and it's nice to track progress. So anyway, I snapped some quick cell phone pictures last night after our ab workout destroyed me. Here's the progress on my biceps and abs!
Don't mind the totally haggered face--I had just gotten run over by our trainer at the boot camp class. That ab workout was TOUGH!
Anyway, I was comparing the new photos to some older photos I had and I could tell a good difference. Sometimes we forget to take a look back and see how far we've come (whether physically or mentally) and that can get discouraging. It's nice to take a moment to go back and see how much we've truly changed and be positive about the person we are becoming. I may not be the healthiest person ever (see: sugar binge, above), but I am a changed person. I am a lot more conscious of what I put in my body, what I do with my body, and what I want for my body. I've drastically changed the quantity of food I put into my mouth on a daily basis, and I have found the joy that comes from a hard workout.
It's been a good year.
Next year will be even better!
