You will always be my baby even when you are 80...I'll still hold your hand and kiss you on your cheek and always be there when you need me. I love you with all my heart little person who stole it from the start..along with your sisters whom have a tight grip on it also. You are my little man and little knight in shinning armor. #momlife#momandson#mommylove#photography#babyboy
I came across a blog post last week, and these words stuck with me.
Chasing perfect makes me feel: *tired
*not thin enough
*not beautiful enough
How does chasing perfect make you feel?
We see so many highlight reels on social media.
Friendships that are PERFECT. Marriages that are PERFECT. Bodies that are PERFECT.
What you see in this picture below is the same woman chasing perfect in different ways.
On the left; this woman is chasing perfect to LOOK like the woman on the right. She wants so badly to have a tiny little waist. To be skinny. To not have stretch marks that cover her stomach and legs.
On the right; this woman is chasing perfect to FEEL like the woman on the left. She wants to be happy in her day to day life. She wants to laugh again. She wants her family to be together; happy and healthy.
Chasing perfect can affect your health, your family life, everything.
We need to stop chasing the world’s definition of perfect, and live on purpose, for ourselves, for our families, for our happiness.
Comparison is the thief of joy. We need to stop comparing our lives to others, and focus more on doing what makes us happy, and quit giving a f*ck about everyone else.
Last week was A LOT better than week one!! To say it's getting easier would be a lie!! .
I feel myself getting stronger in my workouts! My clothes are fitting better, I wouldn't say loose, but more comfortable. .
Today was Day 16 of Whole30 and I and reaching the I can kick butt attitude. (Although I had some crazy cravings today while I was home alone and was able to ignore them with my shake). .
I am getting to the point where I reach for what I can eat. I no longer dwell on what I can't eat. That is a huge mental thing for me. I used to roam the kitchen looking for something and would get sad at all the things I COULDN'T eat! Only to sabotage my journey. Setting me back to my starting point. .
It was an endless cycle and I am breaking it once again.
Breaking your mental game is one of the hardest challenges. Fighting it and pushing yourself to just keep going! Even when you wanna quit. .
As for a weight in total, I have NO IDEA yet!! . .
I am waiting until the end of Core de Force and whole30 to get the big results. So two more weeks!! .
As for my halfway point.....I could not be happier with how I feel. The confidence that's growing and my attitude that is changing!! .
YOU could do this!! .
YOU can make a change too! It's starts by making the choice to change. .
You don't have to live feeling tired all the time, wishing you had more energy to just get through the day, to be able to play with your kids and enjoy every minute of it. So you don't have to make excuses as to why you can't play or do something with them because your out of breathe or tired. .
Make this YOUR year to take a leap of faith to better yourself. .
Message me how!!
I'm literally days shy of the 3rd trimester, and fighting cravings ain't easy ya'll [shoot it wasn't easy when I wasn't preggers if u wanna get real] But, I know how my body FEELS when I eat well vs eat like poopy-ca-ca...so on tonight's menu is salmon & brussel sprouts for me and Baby Camden.
