#Mamavation Monday - Redefining My Beauty


#Mamavation Monday - Redefining My Beauty


The 6 week challenge is over and the results are in check this out!
During the Crossfit Unity 1 year celebration the winners of the Slim Down Challenge were announced. I brought it home for the ladies. I was thinking that maybe I was one of those that had a lot to lose but really, why diminish my victory? I worked hard so here is my hard work plaque! SCORE. My husband has been trying a few of these work outs with me. That's pretty cool. Here is what I have learned so far about this journey. I have to redefine my beauty! I'm no longer what my husband would call "club girl skinny." I don't see me ever getting back to that place. It doesn't matter because she wasn't strong or healthy. I have a lot more work to do but I have to figure out a different way to measure my progress. If it wasn't for the body scan I would still be cursing my scale. I gained weight but I lost fat that I know for sure. Can I measure by how my clothes fit? Not really. My clothes fit looser in odd places and tight in others. I realize that my body is in transition. I'm not sure what I'm going to look like by the time I'm done. Rather, I don't think I will ever be done but I'm sure there will come a time where I'm finally comfortable and confident in my own skin. Until that happens my idea of me being beautiful or looking good is not something I will be able to see quickly. Do I see change? of course I do but I still have those trouble spots and since you can't spot reduce without surgery it's going to take time. When I do see the me I want to see, trust me.....I will let the world know! lol - Until then I remain on my journey of health and fitness and trying to keep reaching for my personal best.
