I took before pictures again today. I'm not posting until next month when I have a really great transformation comparison. I'm still slowly losing body fat and gaining muscle back, but my motivation and drive has definitely been running at about 70%. I make about half of my gym days and diet wise has been somewhat of a mess. Don't get me wrong, I get my healthy meals in, but I've also been getting many added sweets. I've fallen down the sugar rabbit hole! Yikes! So, I've decided to refocus and step up my game. Even writing this out to the world is making the fat girl in me, break out in a sweat. lol. Now people KNOW, which means I have to actually follow through, What?! Below is what my diet plan looks like and my weigh-in from Tuesday, October 1st. I'm going to weigh-in at the beginning of each month and post to my blog, as a means to hold myself accountable, in addition to my weekly posts on life and faith, etc. Hope you can follow along!
