I work anywhere from 50 to 60 hours per week. One job is in my chosen field yet lacks certain benefits. The other pays the bills and provides me a very different environment to be part of. I don't like working so much, but it's how my life happens to be. I sleep more than I'd like to, and my social life is almost non-existent. The latter is partially by choice. I don't always have the energy to be around other people, but the times when I want to be never seem to work with others. . . A couple of weeks ago, I attempted to pursue a 28 Day Reset by @blogilates . I wanted to challenge myself and develop better eating habits. Unfortunately, my lifestyle hasn't been allowing me to follow it as I had hoped. I started to feel guilty and upset that I couldn't stay away from certain foods for even a week, and I realized that's exactly how I shouldn't be feeling. @xogingy is another woman I follow who has this incredible outlook on life, and her posts reminded me that I shouldn't be punishing myself for eating certain foods. Even though my dinner right now is Totinos pizza and Cape Cod chips, I have been pursuing balance over complete omission. My breakfast was a fruit smoothie with fresh fruit, and my lunch yesterday was spinach chicken curry. Two days ago, I made veggie egg white scramble, and I had mac and cheese with hotdogs for dinner last night. The reset may work for some, but I choose to see it as an opportunity to include a wider variety of meals into my every day diet. . . Aside from food, I have so much more happening in my life, and I forget how to handle it sometimes. I let it overwhelm me until I dissolve into tears. Luckily, I am surrounded by friends and family who care so much about me, and I have to remember that sometimes. . . . #self #selflove #fitness #fitspo #healthyliving #food #eatwhatyouwant #balance #nature #mentalhealth

I know you’ve all seen it. The twitter post that celebrates making it to 18 with no kids. So what do you have to show for it? Where’s your brand new car? Where’s your house/apartment? You still live with ya’ momma? Are you in college? Did you even graduate high school? Do you even have a steady income coming in? Most teen moms have WAY more to show at this age than those who “made it” I had Sakara at 16. Boy Bye ✌🏽

Weight loss for me has become less about the actual weight loss as it is now about feeling comfortable in my own skin. . After 5 pregnancies, my body has changed. I have stretch mark. Cellulite. Wrinkles and scars. Even though I have lost the excess 100 pounds, I still don’t feel comfortable in my own skin. . Today I did something I haven’t done in over 18 years. I was outside in a two piece and wasn’t ashamed or embarrassed. May be a small thing to some, but that’s a big deal for me. . Just because I lost the extra 100 pounds, that didn’t make me feel comfortable. I reached my goal, but it didn’t change how I saw myself. I may look great to many, but to me, I still see flaws and ugliness. . These last weeks I’ve been in a #transphormation challenge through @1stphorm. I didn’t do it for the weight loss. I haven’t done it to look great to anyone else. I am in this because my perspective of myself needed to change. . I’ve been successful today. Today I won. . Weight loss is the easy part, if that’s even easy. Seeing myself as not just a women, wife and mother, but also being unafraid of being me in spite of the flaws and things I cannot change is where the winning happens. . I know weight loss is a hard deal, but learning to love myself is a whole new book I’m writing. I kinda like this chapter! One day, I will truly be free of myself. . Do you struggle there? Let me know. How do you deal with it? What do you do to help yourself love you better? . #selflove #mom #renewedfitnesswithliz #progress #mindset
