Declaring *MY* Independence update #2




Its time for my second "Declaring MY Independence" update!

This months update was pushed back a day, due to the long weekend/holiday.
Even though I am posting this late I took the pictures on the 4th..NO CHEATING HERE!


If you are new here WELCOME! I am so happy to have you :)

On July 4th I declared my independence from food that does not fuel my body.
I wanted to refocus on my workouts, and eating clean.

 August was the hardest month for me I was partying a lot, BBQs/Birthdays,etc.
Drinking became a weekly event [not complaining, YOLO] and even though I was keeping up with my workouts you can see how my body reacted to my eating in the picture above.

When comparing the 3 pictures side by side, I do see a difference from July 4th to September 4th

My waist is smaller, as is my pooch.
I will always be a work in progress,but slow and steady wins the race.

With my torn meniscus I am being forced into changing my workout routine, yet again. But I welcome the change because I know that confusing my body/muscles always works for me.
Running was really helping me lose inches so I am definitely bummed that is on the back burner for now, but I will be lifting more so hopefully I'll find a new love in that.
AND I will be sharing new circuits, more often.


Join the declaring MY independence challenge and send me your link ups!
Fuel your body.
Love your body.

    1. Honestly nothing tastes as good as strong feels... I love that rush from cardio but I think lifting will give me the same feeling

  9. Congrats! Awesome progress!!!
    I'm sorry to hear about your torn meniscus. I know what it feels to be taken out of your regular workout groove but remember healing is essential. I had surgery about 6 weeks ago and starting Monday I can return to low impact working out, so I'm excited but it was tough to accept the down. Tough but necessary! Happy Healing :)
