The person above seems so long ago when it's only been 2 months. The last photo set was taken on November 8 and since then there's been significant improvement in the tummy area and in the butt as I have been busting squats.
I've grown accustomed to not having soda. I demolished a can of Pepsi on Thanksgiving to reward myself as promised but it was way too sweet and bubbly for me. I think at this point, it's difficult to tone my tummy because now that I've lost all the water weight and now, this is where the real work begins. I've been slacking on my daily runs and due to budget constraints, I haven't been eating as healthy as I should be.
The hardest part of the fitness challenge is going out with friends and being around people not doing the same thing as you. In the beginning I pretty much stayed in the house by myself, so there was no temptation to eat all the bad shit. Last night I had a piece of Popeyes chicken for dinner because Corey bought it. I do have the power to say no, I always have but I was starving lol and didn't have the resources to buy something for myself to cook. It's much easier for me to talk myself out of a bad decision than it is to talk someone else out of it too.
On the bright side, while I still don't know much weight I loss, I can fit into a regular store jeans. I purchased a pair of size 10's from Banana Republic. Although I can still fit into a large bottom, it's become more and more baggy. I'm almost ready to make that leap into Medium life.
New Year's Eve is quickly approaching and I would like to be on fleek for it. After buying the Sparkle tickets, it will be back to healthy eating for me. You can check me out in clothing here. Also you can read the month one of the fitness journey, here.
