2 YEAR GLOW UP✨lol @carolinegibson2 sent me this the other day and it’s too good not to post. No, this is not a 30 day transformation, this is a 2 year lifestyle transformation that started with a 30 day program.
the left pic was after senior year of college. that year consisted of lots of drinking for us both, eating what I thought was “healthy”, working out about 3 times a week, never getting enough sleep, always relying on caffeine, and struggling to control my breakouts.
fast forward 1 year ⏭ after doing my first 30 days, I lost the 10 lbs that I’d been trying to lose for 4 years, my skin cleared up, my digestive issues were nonexistent, I had more energy than ever before, and I gained so much confidence. As for Sam, he started cooking 30 day compliant meals, cleaned up his diet, and found his love for running.
fast forward 2 years ⏭ these are the main habits that I have adopted. I share this because this is what works for ME, and I wish someone would have helped me make these changes sooner. you don’t have to agree with me, but if sharing this can help even one person feel more confident then I accomplished my goal with this post:
1️⃣ I eat a gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, soy free diet 80% of the time including lots of veggies/greens shots/minimal processed foods
2️⃣ I don’t weigh myself more than once a week sometimes once a month, or 6 months when my scale’s battery dies
3️⃣ I don’t set fitness goals that involve the number on the scale, instead I set goals that involve an actual activity, like being able to do 5 pull-ups or run 5 miles🏃♀️
4️⃣ I changed my mindset towards working out - I now exercise because I love my body and realize we only get one💪🏻I used to workout because I hated my body and thought the more I worked out the less I would hate it
5️⃣ when I drink alcohol, I try to stick to vodka water + fizz, gin and soda, or dry red wine🍷
6️⃣ I invested in a daily skincare regimen using a combination of arbonne’s anti aging line and acne line🍊
so if you’re looking for a quick fix the 30 days might not be for you, but if you’re looking to jump start a healthy lifestyle COMMIT TO 30 DAYS! your future self will thank you for it💖
