Entering motherhood was a dream. Something I was always eager to begin. For some they bounce right back, I was not that way. I had to really work at it each time. This was discouraging given my active lifestyle. After my 3rd pregnancy, I joined an all-women’s gym while living in Texas. I loved the environment and making time for the gym became easy. I realized I was killing it at the gym, but I still didn’t have the results I wanted. I tried every fad diet out there. Nothing was sustainable. There would be days I’d have so much self-doubt, negative self-talk, or place blame on my genetics. I now know the ups and downs, but also what good comes from consistency. I reeled in on what ingredients I was putting in my body and that was a game changer. I started to drop weight fast. The more I lost the happier I thought I would be. I wasn’t. This was a turning point for me. I then started to track macros. I have done macros for over 7 years. I’m always reading and love learning more about it. I didn’t understand the freedom and different phases until I was in each one of them. Through this process, I realized what I needed to do for my goals. It was crazy to think I was the heaviest I’d been but the strongest and best I’ve ever felt. I ditched the scale. I started listening to my body and paid more attention to my biofeedback. I am more in tune with what my body needs. I’ve learned the importance of fueling my body. I am continually learning more each day. I don’t live to eat, I eat to live!
