I am currently in my second day of this clean eating challenge, and I already have a body like some Instagram celebrity and the new Chris Pratt had an all-ab baby. I lift up my shirt and sparkles fly off of my perfectly toned midsection. I just can’t contain my muscles.
Clearly these are not truths. In fact, they are hard not truths that I have yet to come to terms with. It’s hard to see the results of your work, even on day 30 of a new challenge. “Take pictures,” they said. “Take your measurements,” they said. But of course I didn’t do either, because I’m lazy. Until I had a personal trainer who did it for me!
To be clear, I don’t have a trainer now, because that was an expense that I really never should have expensed in the first place. This time, I’m on my own. BUT my point is, taking pictures of yourself monthly actually does show the changes you won’t see day to day. Once you start seeing those changes, you will be even more inspired to push yourself further!
So here I go. As soon as I press “post” on this here blog, I’m marching back to my room to take that embarrassing first photo in my new journey since, incase you hadn’t noticed, the pictures above are from about a year ago. In it to win it this time, though! Still writing so I don’t have to go take that picture….
Maybe I’ll do a few squats first…
