Motivation Monday- 4th and Inches

Image from Facebook
I have been going to my trainer since about May. I have reached a point where I no longer fear what she might ask me to do because I have proven to myself that I can do things I thought my body would never allow me to do. However, I was really nervous for my appointment with her this morning.

Why would I be nervous? She already has me planking and lifting weights I was convinced would kill me and rip my arms right out of their socket so what more could I be afraid of? Today was the day she was going to do my measurements again. It worried me that all the confidence I had developed would vanish simply because of some numbers on a tape measurer.

I kept telling myself that I have been working hard, doing things that I never thought I would do, and it didn't matter what the numbers were because I can see and feel changes. I told myself not to focus on the numbers because I know that my clothes have been baggier and other people have noticed as well.

I am beyond ecstatic to report that there have been some pretty big (if I do say so myself) changes. I lost five inches off my waist and 4.5 off my hips. My arms, thighs, chest have also shed some inches. Tears almost came out because it felt like official validation that my hard work is paying off. Eating the same thing Monday-Friday is now worth it (but still not yummy).
