16 Week Goal=Completed!
First, sorry I have been MIA for the past 4 weeks. A lot going on with the business and getting ready for the completion of my goal. I am so excited to say I have reached my 16 week goal and the results are amazing! If I do say so myself ;)
The photos on the left were from 16 weeks ago and the photos on the right from yesterday morning. What you can't see in the photo might shock you. Keep reading to find out what that is!
If you didn't already know, my goal was to get lean for a photo shoot.
I know what you are probably saying...."ANOTHER photo shoot?!"
Yes, but this time it wasn't just for the fun of it, all if it is for this blog and my Train Like A Girl program (coming soon!!!).
I needed to get more "fitness related" photos and so that meant I needed to find a photographer that specialized in just that.
And that is exactly what I did.
I follow a lot of fitness models on Instagram and the one photographer I kept seeing pop up in their accounts, and the pics were/are phenomenal, was Michael Neveux.
Michael has been photographing fitness models and professionals for over two decades. You have probably seen a lot of his work on fitness magazine covers and articles inside the magazines.
I was lucky enough to get an opportunity to work with him and I jumped right on it! And I couldn't be happier with the pictures I have seen so far!
But in order to be able to do the shoot, I needed to get my nutrition and training back on track. So I set that 16 week goal.
If you have been reading my blog, you know I've had some ups and some downs during the 16 weeks.
I'll be honest...I'm not that surprised.
No matter how great the nutrition and training program is, you will ALWAYS have at least 1 day where you want to give up because you are that frustrated.
But the key to success...is pushing through those frustrations and keep on going.
I think the one thing I think you will be EXTREMELY surprised at, because honestly...I was, is that I only lost 5 pounds of scale weight from start to finish during the 16 weeks.
Yes! ONLY 5 POUNDS!!!
But as you can see from the pics above, the difference between the two is huge.
Once again this just shows how false a scale can be.
It doesn't track your true results.
I want to thank you for keeping up with my posts about getting to my goal. Whether you know it or not, you are the ones keeping me accountable...and I thank you and appreciate you for it.
Make sure to check back later this week to see what I am doing next and another little tidbit about my journey so far!
