Introducing Me

I have always thought I was fat. Even as a teenager and before having kids. Looking back now I realize I seriously had a false sense of self. I was 96 pounds before having my first child. I know I had an unhealthy relationship with food back then. I thought of food as the enemy. I lived off of coffee and cigarettes.

Before Kids

After having my first son I still thought I was fat. But hey I just had a baby so tummy pudge is a ok. And I lived with that motto. Then I had my second son. Motto still alive. Then my first son was 11 and my second son was 7. That motto wasn’t really acceptable anymore. I could no longer blame the fat on having babies.

But weight, I have a bad hip, have had it since childbirth. Well according to my doctor, sports medicine doctor and physiotherapist my diagnosis is “tight and weak muscles”. Well crap, I guess I am all out of excuses. Oh wait! I have asthma. Well millions of people have asthma and they don’t let that keep them from being healthy.

So I was all out of excuses and it was time to make a change. I invested in myself and bought a home workout netflix-esque type of program. Thousands of workouts at my finger tips that I could do in the comfort of my own home. Without people staring or laughing at me.

I also invested in a nutrition program by the same company. I have never been a believe in diets except the starve yourself one as a teen-ager. This program has taught me how to eat healthy and in proper portions without denying myself anything.

21 Days of Working Out

In my first 21 days I dropped 11 inches and lost 3 pounds. Sure you may say “Only 3 pounds??” But I gained muscle and my body changed. It isn’t just about the scale (another thing my programs have taught me). I went from wearing a size 14 to a size 10. I live in leggings and always had to buy the plus size ones. I now get to buy the OS (one size) ones.

I am looking forward to continuing my journey and hope you will all follow along.
