I debated all day about posting this comparison. I have struggled with various negative thoughts surrounding this comparison and felt that maybe I could help myself and someone else at the same time by sharing them anyway. .
I decided in November to commit to running a half marathon. I chose a race in March to give myself some time to train the smart way. The holidays were coming and I knew where my temptations lie. #PumpkinPie#ShortbreadCookies#BirthdayCake I kept with my 80/20 lifestyle without a hitch until mid to end of December. Birthdays. Dinners out. Beer. Wine. More beer. More wine. I took almost 2 weeks off of running because of weather and did not make up for it by continuing to workout. I got lazy. I took one look at myself in the mirror in between Christmas and New Years and said, “Gurl!! You seriously gone wreck all your hard work thus far and miss another goal??!” .
The answer came to me from a small voice deep within my heart. “No.” I’m not going to settle right now and ruin my training plan. I’m not going to crawl under a rock and wave goodbye to my health again. I looked right at my reflection and told myself that I deserved better than what I have allowed myself to currently become. I have goals and I shouted them out loud for accountability. I WILL NOT LET MYSELF DOWN.
I started running regularly again (weather permitting) and began working out consistently in my own home. I have moments where I want to cave and give in, I’m human. I continually have to remind myself about my goals and stay laser focused on not cheating until it’s my cheat meal! #Discipline
The pic in the blue shorts and black bra was taken January 6. The pic in the blue bra and black pants rolled up- this morning. #IAmInItToWinIt#MyHealthIsMyPrize
Believing in yourself is hard sometimes. But if you don’t, who will? It begins and ends with you. My story is still being written and sometimes revisions are necessary. Road blocks are down and it’s full speed ahead. .
I also included a comparison photo from the beginning of my transformation two years ago and from this morning post workout. #RealityCheck Not where I want to be BUT ALSO SO FAR FROM MY BEGINNING. #Perspective

Even though the holidays are over with, I still know how to enjoy a good piece of #pumpkinpie 😂😂😂 I could eat 🥧 anytime of the year and be a happy girl. 😁
Did you know that frozen cranberries and shredded coconut are AMAZING toppers for #vegan pumpkin pie? It gives it the 👌🏻flavor.
recipe link in bio. 😉
Bundevara je definitivno u top 5 kolača za mene. Ovaj put sam pravio i pitu od jabuka, sve to zahvaljujući poklonu iz @icebergsalatcentar u vidu bundeve i jabuke već izrendane i spremne za upotrebu. Ništa lakše! ✌😃 Recept verovatno svi znate ali evo podsećanja:
500 gr narendane bundeve začinite sa 4 pozamašne kašike šećera (može i med) i stavite kašiku ili dve cimeta. 3 kore za pitu pojedinačno premažite uljem pa spojene nadevajte bundevom. Urolajte pa pecite 30 min na 180°. Isto uradite sa jabukom. U jabuku sam dodao i seckane orahe. #bundevara#pumpkinpie#applepie#pitaodjabuka#easycooking#slobastefanović#gastroglumac
