Happy Labor Day Weekend!
I really love learning more about myself every day. When I decided to embark on this journey back in June, I never knew I could meet my 16-year-old self again.
I was this determined, young, and talented tennis player on a mission. My life revolved around my goals and nothing stopped me. I would out train and outplay everyone. After my career came to an end because of Rheumatoid Arthritis I lost a part of me. Fast forward 21 years working out this morning, and reflecting back on the past 7 weeks, I realized I have met my 16-year-old self at the age of 40. The feeling of pushing myself outside of my comfort zone feels incredible.
I'm 7 weeks out and really excited for the outcome of this journey. My family and friends have been so supportive... check out this meal Greg made me last Sunday night. A dinner party at his house and he measured my food and cooked plain jane which is totally not in his vocabulary. It was outstanding as usual.

Meal prepping has definitely gotten easier and I have grown accustomed to taking my food everywhere with me now. I'm in love with these meal containers, makes the process so easy.
I also felt I got some balance back this week, trying to simplify the prep so I have more time to spend with the people I love.

I got a cheat meal this week, definitely had anxiety leading up to it but my body felt awesome refueling with carbs. I bought Pamela's Pancake mix and the goal was 100-125 grams of carbs. So bright and early yesterday morning I was flipping pancakes. Haven't made pancakes in 10+ years, I topped them with Walden's Sugar-Free syrup and strawberries... they were out of this world, or maybe I was just hungry and my taste buds went crazy.
Really great workout this morning after refueling.

A quote that I am loving this week. Transparency has been my goal on this journey since the beginning. Live in front of others as you do behind closed doors.
Check-in time with the "Coach", Christian Simmons... huge difference in my abs and quads from last week. Thanks always for the guidance! #7weeksout

I can't stress how happy I am in life after making myself a priority. You live once and you deserve the world. Fall in love with yourself daily!
Thank you for following along this journey with me and I can't wait to share my progress next week.
