The picture was for Transformation Tuesday. I have never posted anything for that before. You see, I have started and restarted my journey towards being healthier so many times, I felt like I didn't HAVE a worthy Transformation Tuesday picture yet. Then, I was flipping through a photo album and I found the first picture. I was in shock. WHOA! Was this really me? This is a picture of me when Aidan was just a few months born back in 2005. It was taken at his christening. I saw more and more pictures from that day and realized that I HAVE actually come far. I mean, I have stopped and restarted so many times I have lost count. I do think, however, that each time, I have learned something new.
There is something that has been missing though and I think that was confidence. I was going through the motions of whatever diet and exercise plan I was doing at the time, but somewhere in the back of my mind, I knew I wasn't going to finish or I just felt like I wasn't strong enough or something. While I still lack confidence in areas, my confidence levels have increased exponentially. I think it is because of the additional support I have now that I did not have then and the 100 other times.
While I still have a long way to go, I am really pleased with the person I see looking back at me in that 2nd picture. Sure...there are like 10 years between the first and second picture, but progress was made, and I am proud of that.
Just wanted to put in a plug for a 5 Day Clean Eating group that I am putting together. If you have ever been curious about clean eating or not sure where to get started, this is an excellent place to start. A stigma with clean eating is that it is too expensive to do. That isn't true! There are ways to do it, that can actually SAVE you money at the store. If you haven't already begun clean eating, I know you will find that you will feel like a new person!
The 5 Day plan will begin on July 14th and last until July 18th. This is what you will get from me:
- A 5 Day Clean Meal eating plan
- A comprehensive grocery list.
- Free coaching, support and accountability.
- A week’s supply of superfood nutrition shake Shakeology.
- A jumpstart into a healthier lifestyle.
Why Shakeology, you may ask? Well, the answer is simple. Shakeology is filled FULL of nutrients that you would normally never get in your daily diet. I cannot even describe to you how much better I feel since I have started drinking it. I have more energy and my weight loss has started to take off again.
If you are interested in joining this 5 Day Challenge, please e-mail me or leave me a comment here. I will then send you the invite on Facebook and make sure you get purchasing information!
I hope you will join me!
