hello, friends!  just a quick, mid-week motivational post!

nod your head if you’ve pinned tight butts and toned legs as inspiration to lose weight…  yep, me too.  but then i thought, why not find a photo of myself when i loved my own body?

back (way back) in 2009, i was in the best shape i’ve ever been in!  everytime i see this picture i a) can’t believe that used to be my butt and b) get super inspired to own it once again.

so that’s my challenge to you… find a photo of yourself when you felt healthy, strong and confident.  place it on your bathroom mirror or on your fridge (or anywhere else that may require a gentle reminder.)

maybe your old self will inspire your current self!

good luck!

  1. Great weekly series! An issue that most, if not all, women have dealt with at some point in their lives! We definitely need to love & accept ourselves in order to move forward & make positive changes. I would like get to eating healthier. I make it a priority for my munchkins but often neglect my nutritional needs as I get to busy and such. health

  2. I was going to say “nice tush” when I say the pic! I wonder if my back end ever look that good…maybe…before kids!

  3. Wow! You were in incredible shape! It’s soooo hard to get motivated to work out after a long day of work, you know?! I just want to collapse. Ugh. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    • hi kelly! thanks! it IS hard to get motivated. i keep an extra set of gym clothes in my car so that i can leave straight from work and head over to the gym. typically, if i go home… i get too busy or comfortable and i never make it back out! i’m happy to inspire!
