Body Comparison & Year in Review

New Years Eve is not just a day of partying with your friends and family, but a day of reflection.
I have spent a lot of time thinking about everything I have accomplished in 2012 and wanted to highlight a few.

-Spent a weekend with some of my best blends
-I felt uncomfortable in my own skin
-Worked out at MetLife Stadium
-Started a Racebook [which needs some serious updating]
-Survived a mud run
-Ran the color run
-I tried paddleboarding
-I had an epiphany 
-Survived Frankenstorm
-Started a Friday Favorites series

and that isn't even half of my favorite moments!

On 12-31-11 I posted a body comparison from 2010-2011. It's my own way to visually see the changes my body is making even if I don't feel them.

The biggest change is from 2010 to 2012 but I can see a lot of differences between last years photo and this year.

My waist is considerably smaller this year and my hips.
The area around my bra/chest continues to be my biggest trouble area and this year it is my goal to banish all of that extra flub.
No one wants that hanging over their wedding dress!
"The girls" have shrunk--HALLELUJAH

 Overall I am happy with how far I have come but I see there is still a long way to go.
I will be increasing my ST this year in addition to 1/2 marathon training and continuing my yoga practice.

2013 is MY year!


  1. Rear pics would be good too

  2. Great Job I admire your perseverance .

  3. You've come a long way lady! Great job!

  4. What a GREAT idea! I will be taking my pictures for this coming year ASAP! You can really see the difference and what a great job you did over the past couple years. Best wishes for you in the New Year!

    1. :) Happy to have inspired you to take pics-- I like visuals rather then number--HAPPY NEW YEAR

  5. Awesome job! I like your reflection list...Lots of things to be thankful for and inspired by on there. Funny...your "girls" are shrinking but so are mine but I didn't have much to begin with ha! Gotta love being a chick. :/

    1. haha the girls have been one of the biggest pains for me.. three sports bras and still having major bounce issues---not ok
