September 2017 >>>June 2018
For most of my adult life, I have never been able to find a healthy balance between fitness and my nutrition. I’d tried a couple different diets in the past with little success. At one point, my eating got so out of control (legit trips to McDonalds after work and buying cinnamon rolls at the store once a week then crashing hard) and it felt like this never ending cycle of eating then hating myself. By the end of last summer, I weighed the most I’d ever weighed and felt miserable, so I knew I’d reached a point where I had to make a major change.
I’d heard about @flexfuel.nutrition through a couple friends and knew I had to get my eating under control before anything else. I’ve been working with Mallory since September and I came to her desperately wanting to lose weight and lean down, but more importantly, have a better relationship with food. She’s heard my ups and downs, coached me, and supported me through little moments of defeat without judgement and I owe a lot of my success to her.
Not only I have I shed 18 lbs and a few inches, but more importantly my relationship with food is completely altered. While I do eat a lot of food, foods that I WANT and that fuel my body properly, I still occasionally indulge in my guilty pleasures. I’m also a lot more conscious about my alcohol intake now, which was something I was always veryyyyy lax with (you know, being in my 20’s and all). The last piece I wanted was to dial in my fitness, so I stumbled back into @thorbeckescrossfit in February and haven’t looked back. Anyone can say what they want about CF, (I did at one point as well) but all I will say is don’t ever knock someone for trying to get in better shape.
Although this is not an end point, I wanted to share my personal experience thus far and maybe inspire someone along the way. I never, ever wanted to be photographed in my bikini before but after months of hard work, patience, and discipline, here I am
