I’ve been struggling with staying consistent with my workouts. I catch myself in the bad habit of talking down to myself. And since it’s my job to be the best version of myself, I’ve felt like a failure lately.

Then, I came across the picture on the left. I realized just how much I’ve changed over the last couple years.

Not just physically, but mostly mentally!

The girl on the left drank alcohol TO be happy. This girl would drink a fifth of vodka, tequila or rum alone on a regular basis. Not something I’m proud of, actually shows how often I did drink which is kind of embarrassing.

The girl on the right drinks on occasion, but she doesn’t need a social lubricant or a bandaid to cover her pain. She’s most definitely not perfect, she gets hard on herself more than she should, but she catches it before it spirals out of control.

Since I’ve joined my Beachbody tribe, I’ve become a whole new person. Someone I never thought I could be. Someone that the old me would have looked at and said “Wow, so cool she was able to get on the right track, but I don’t think I’ll ever be able to crawl out of this hole.”

If you’ve ever felt this way, been in a funk, been someone who says horrible things to themselves, or just struggles with life in general I’m here to tell you that it is possible to get better. I’m living proof that it is possible. You’ll never be perfect, and that is OKAY! Don’t ever give up on yourself, just show yourself more love today than yesterday. If you make the choice to change, then you’re halfway there. 💗

And if you feel alone, please reach out to me! I’ll be there for anyone who needs it.
