Pollyanna get’s FIT.

Life in California has been so amazing ( besides of course deployments – those are NO fun). We are able to do so much more compared to our life in Texas. It’s just such a good change, for the best. The weather is amazing, not to mention the beach and we can actually go to the gym now, my hubby bought us gym memberships to LA Fitness. Which has been such an amazing, new outlook on life for me.

After getting my gallbladder removed, I wanted a new start for myself. Not only for myself, but for my family. There is nothing more, that I want in life then to see my kids grow up and be there every step of the way. I want to enjoy life with them and not have my ‘health’ be an issue. I want and need,  to be at my very best for my hubby and kids.  About a month ago I started to keep track of my ‘MACROS’ and working out on a daily basis. Since doing so, I’ve dropped a few lbs and slowly but surely gaining muscle – that I never knew i had 🙂 I feel amazing as far as health goes, not to mention, fitting into some jeans that I wasn’t able to before, is also pretty darn good.

I was a bit scared to actually post this, just because of my insecurities. I figured if my pictures can motivate some my readers, then it makes it worth it. These photos are two week difference. I’m SO PROUD of myself, I still have a long way to go but these before and after photos just give me more motivation to keep on going! My hubby and munchkins need me to be  healthy and lastly I want to feel good about my self. I’m excited of what’s to come in the future. 

There are no special pills I’m taking or crazy diets, i’m just following a IIFYM ( if it fits your macros) and working out 5-6  days a week. Working out with weights ( to build muscle) and cardio (to get my body fat down). I have learned a lot from my husband, since he knows a lot about working out and eating right. I too, have been on YOUTUBE a lot, watching workout videos. Some of my favorite body builders – Kai Greene, Dana Linn Bailey, Victor Martinez.  

**I use My Fitness pal – iPhone app to keep track on my MACROS// NOT SURE WHAT IIFYM IS CLICK HERE **

I will be documenting my journey.. so stay tuned for recipes/tips/reviews.
