I got my next month of Personal Trainer Food this week.
In case you were wondering, this is what it looks like when you get it.
It comes in a big ass box, and the food inside is packed in dry ice.
Back in November I weighed at least 10 pounds more than I do today.
My waist was at least three inches bigger than it is now.
I went on the Dr. Oz show twice in that month.
And I felt like crap.
None of my clothes fit, and I spent the entire time being really self-conscious about the massive muffin top hanging over my jeans and whether or not people could really see it.
Plus, I was just ridiculously uncomfortable because my jeans were way too tight.
Today, I hosted my first wine tasting event.
(By the way, have you liked my page for that yet and booked your party)?
Anyway, today I put those same jeans on that I wore to Dr. Oz and they are almost getting loose.
And I felt confident. I didn’t spend one second thinking about what my body looked like.
My jeans didn’t hurt me.
Here’s another thing.
Eating better led me to want to take better care of my body.
Which led me to commit to yoga.
And yes, I am stronger and tighter than I was five weeks ago.
But I also noticed something else.
I used to have trouble turning my head to the left when I was driving and came to a stop at a stop sign.
I looked like Joan Cusack in Sixteen Candles when she was trying to drink out of a can with that neck brace on.
But now, since starting yoga, I can turn to the left no problem.
In fact, I went from feeling like Joan Cusack to feeling more like this:
That’s because of yoga.
Yoga happened because of healthier eating choices.
It’s like a vicious cycle.
But a good vicious cycle.
I haven’t had sugar in 36 days.
That is a fucking miracle.
And I really don’t miss it at all now.
Number 3 took my pictures for me today, and he said to me, “Mommy. You look skinnier.”
And skinny is not my goal.
But if for sure felt good when my nine-year-old noticed the changes in my body.
I feel great.
Inside and out.
