THIS photo explains why I preach about creating a LIFESTYLE around health & fitness vs. popping a pill, wrapping your waist, or drinking a magic drink. .
There are too many people looking for that quick & easy solution to feel better, look better, think better... STOP. What happens when you run out of that pill or stop that drink? What happens when your body starts rejecting that poisonous shit you're putting in your system? YOU GAIN ALL THAT WEIGHT BACK because it's not sustainable. .
I spent all of 2016 focusing on my health & fitness journey the right way & got into the best shape of my life. Then life happened & I had to stop #fkUlcerativeColitis.
I went 9 months so far, unable to workout. Can you tell? Here's the beauty of creating a lifestyle: your body bounces back quick. Muscle memory kicks in... you don't lose all the progress you made because you've built a strong temple. .
I've gotten a couple comments as I've shared my progress before surgery like: "there's no way she has abs AND Ulcerative Colitis..." -- All I can do is smile knowing that this disease isn't my EXCUSE, it's my REASON WHY. ✌🏽
