Summer is almost over. August has been a little strange, I was working out faithfully the first two weeks of the month, but with school starting soon I decided to lay off and stop torturing my son with visits to the YMCA everyday (he hated it).
We’ve gone to the pool a few times but this was the first time I’ve allowed a picture of myself to be taken in a swimsuit since I was pregnant. I can say I’ve hated the way I looked in the past, but it wasn’t because I thought I was fat–I’ve just never been comfortable showing skin. Hell, I’m not even comfortable now, but I figured I’d give a shot.
Looking back on where I was just three short years ago, there was never a point where I thought I could do it. I knew it could be done, but I didn’t think I’d be able to achieve what I have.
The hardest part of my mornings is breakfast!! I hate eating in the mornings and forcing myself to eat a little something is always a disaster. I just don’t do it.
I found this neat little graphic from Self Magazine via Pinterest and wanted to share with you all. Since beginning my strength training, I’ve been determined to eat a whole lot better than I had been doing previously. Protein is an important part of any diet, but it’s especially important for building muscle.
I love the P3 Protein packs–I take these with me to the gym and snack on them on the way there and afterwards.
Happy August!! I know school just ended for the kids, but I realized we still have a little over a month left until they go back!!
Anyway, I’ve been trying to get on the infused/detox water trend and I haven’t quite been able to do it. I’ve been searching for the perfect ones, but hadn’t found anything that I liked. I came across this wonderful post from Tip Hero so I thought I would share.
