For those who are in need of a little motivation (ahem, me! 🙋🏻♀️) The past couple weeks on vacation have been absolutely blissful! And eating healthy was not a priority! I enjoyed my vacation and I definitely indulged in all the good foods! I also made it a point not to weigh myself during vacation or after, and I still haven’t weighed myself because the scale doesn’t define me and quite frankly I don’t really care! I’m comfortable in my own skin and a number on a scale shouldn’t dictate that.
That being said, I am so ready to get back to running and back to eating clean because let’s be honest, fast food everyday isn’t good for anybody! But I was on vacation, and you know what it’s okay to live a little, ya know?
For those that are new to my weight loss journey, after a rough pregnancy and battling postpartum depression, I started finding comfort in food. 6 months postpartum, I was a hefty 170 lbs. My heaviest was 187 lbs when I went in to labor.
I was a shy, depressed, self loathing girl who just wanted to do anything to avoid going on anti depressants. So I started my weight loss journey in December, and flash forward to today, I have lost a total of 70 lbs from my heaviest weight!
Anything is possible if you are determined to make a change. Im not saying it’s going to be easy, but it will be worth it!
I still struggle with postpartum depression, I think I will always somehow struggle with it for the rest of my life on some days, but I have come so far from that girl on the left. I am happier, healthier, I have more energy for my daughter, family,school, work. And all because I decided enough was enough. 💕
Today I did a pretty intense Series training:
✔3 kms Warm up to pace 05:38 - 05:29 min / km ✔ Fast: 03:00. Rhythm: 04: 11 / km. Standing: 01:30
✔ Fast: 02:00. Rhythm: 04: 10 / km. Standing: 01:30 x 2.
✔ Fast: 01:00 Rhythm: 04: 03 / km. Stopped: 01:30 x 3. ✅1 kms Clear to rhythm 05:38 - 05:29 min / km.
Thank you very much @runhealthyes for putting together my trainings✔✅.
➡️ 8km in total, I ended up with very tired legs, after that I went to swim a little and recover. .
