There was a time when I believed — despite all my fitness efforts — sure, I’d lose some weight, but my thighs would never be slim and my stomachs would never go down. I’d never be truly strong or look hot. I birthed 4 child-spawns, after all. A nice physique isn’t reserved for people like me.
But you know what?
I wrote my own fitness future and changed what I believed by barreling through those negative thoughts. Day in day and day out, with sweaty workout sessions OUTSIDE of my comfort zone, combined with smart food choices (sprinkled with just a little bit of greedy fun), my body has changed. And it’s still changing.
Don’t let your brain talk you out of what your heart really wants. You can DO THIS!! But it’s going to take hard work and serious commitment. It’s foolish to expect awesome results if you’re not putting in awesome effort.
Think about where you’re at today, where you want to be, and then work for it. There’s no other way around it. You bettah WORK!
…as for that “now” picture? I was forced to intimidate Greedy Kid #3 with my Ninja moves in retaliation for the Kung Fu he tried to inflict upon me. It’s all very logical.
