Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mother’s out there! To be able to focus on weight loss, competition prep, working out, and just being healthy while having children as well BLOWS me away. Taking care of yourself is one thing, but doing it while taking care of others is a totally different animal. You are all amazing!
I feel like i haven’t posted in forever! Life in the world of Lizzy has been good. My little brother is doing so well. I haven’t seen him this happy, upbeat, wanting to be with the family, and so positive in years. It literally makes me cry when I think about it because I feel like I have my little brother back. I didn’t even realize that this side of him still existed. Sad, I know, but drugs will do that to ya. Hoping and praying that he can stay this one. I am there for him every step of the way and he knows that, so I hope that he will rely on me if he ever needs the help, which I’m sure he will. This is an uphill battle for him still.
I have been sticking to my diet(i shouldn’t even call it that, this is a way of life for me now and it feels like a way of life…not like a diet.) and exercising the same. Lately I am noticing my body leaning out a lot. I have been getting alot of comments that I am getting “smaller and more ripped.” YESSS that is what i like to hear!!! 🙂 I hate, however, the comments like “you look so skinny!” Skinny?! I don’t want to be skinny!! I want to be STRONG and fit. Not too strong, not bulky, but I work out hard enough at least tell me I look toned not skinny!! Haha…anyways enough of the mini rant.
Today we are going to my grandmother’s to celebrate mother’s day. Her side of the family has been so-so the last few months, and we haven’t really seen each other lately so it will be nice. (My mom has a broken arm, my grandma had knee surgery.)
Breakfast today was a bowl of oats with banana and almond butter. I will not be joining in on the bagel fun at my grandma’s, but I may enjoy a bowl of real cereal later today, as I have stuck 100% clean for almost 3 weeks straight now and a bowl of cereal might hit the spot. We will see though, because I have been telling myself that I can have that bowl of cereal for the last 3 days and I haven’t even wanted it, so Who know!!
Hope everyone else is doing well and have a great day!
