3 Year Progress With Home Workouts

It's been 3 years of steady consistent work on myself and I couldn't be happier! I have lost so much body fat that I have completely changed my body composition. The picture on the left is a month before we found out we were expecting baby number 3. And i've also had to come back from an emergency appendectomy surgery a year ago. That's exactly what this whole journey is about It's about staying consistent for the long run, getting stronger, getting healthier and loving yourself. More than any number on the scale.

Steps I took to change my body composition: 

Eat better for your body  because you want to and not because it's to let you eat something you want, or as a way to punish yourself for eating something you shouldn't have, but honestly and truly because you want your body to feel better from the inside out.

Move your body more days than you don't. That means at least 4 days a week you are moving your body. Exercising. Walking, swimming, lifting weights, dancing. SOMETHING!

Don't be afraid to lift weights. This year I tested my ability to gain muscle mass and definition, which you can see here. But in general when lifting weights, women will not bulk up unless you are trying to. I wanted to see how much I could lift. I wanted to see if muscle definition is possible in a 243 pounds plus size woman. And it is! But lifting weights, creates lean strong muscles for us women. That's the way to help burn more body fat.

Have a plan and follow it. Follow a program. Make it a goal to complete it. This will keep you consistent. This will get you results. I used to be a cardio bunny at the gym, and just use the treadmill and elliptical, because I really didn't know what else to do or wasn't comfortable what to do. But your body needs to be challenged in different ways to. Try using the weight training machines, or the dumbbells. Or do at home workouts. They really do work!
