Finding my Confidence

Fun fact: Despite my consistency in the gym, I still sometimes battle with the level of confidence I have with myself. It’s crazy, I know; but it is possible to work very hard at something and still not always feel like you look as good as others may see you. I’ve received many compliments on…

It’s Not about a Number, It’s about your Happiness

Two years ago, I was in a bad place. I didn’t like the way I looked, I was miserable and I felt like whenever I tried to eat better or stay in the gym I’d give up and get frustrated. I had always enjoyed going to the gym, but it had just felt useless and…

My Review on Having a Personal Trainer

I have finally finished my 6 months of personal  training!  I wanted to do a review on it, because I have a new-found positive perspective on it. Before, when I would get serious about being in the gym and working out, I never considered getting a personal trainer.  My main thought was, “I can do…

I Bought Clothes. Lol

So, I sort of went against my challenge to myself yesterday, but I am glad I did. I originally told myself that I would not buy myself a stitch of clothing until I lost a substantial amount of weight.  I was all for this, until I realized I have no winter clothes, and a pair…

No Scale Victories
