So I just found this video (screenshot of it) of me from 2 years ago and I am completely shocked. This is hard for me to post as I honestly do not remember looking like this. This was a harder time in my life, junior year of high school was rough because 1. it was hard 2. I had started going to a new school. In this time, I loved to do homework at Starbucks and get a huge frappuccino every time and a bagel with cream cheese. I would do cardio for an hour once or twice a week and that was it. I wasn’t happy with my body or the way I felt physically.
Fast forward two years! I’ve found my true passion: weight lifting. I’ve been lifting for almost 15 months now and am not turning back! I now lift 5-6x a week and do HIIT cardio here and there. I am in love with my body and the way I feel physically and mentally. I now watch what I eat, I do eat what I want, but in moderation. This is around a 25-30 pound difference, but the difference you can’t see is how much stronger I am mentally!
Hope this can help anybody who is struggling to start their journey. It’s never too late, start right now!
