Hey! Long time no chat. I somehow let this blog fall to the wayside but I do want to bring it back and make this another space to share little things that are happening in my life. So buckle up and get ready!

I cannot lie, life is weird. One day you wake up and you're 26 and you realize you don't have your life together whatsoever. GUILTY! This year my vow was to start bettering my life and making changes for the better! Instead of "losing weight," and "getting snatched," I wanted to focus on a more sustainable and realistic goal. I wanted this goal to be not only doable for the now, but doable for the rest of my life. If you're like me then you LOVE food and you dream about your next meal as you're eating your current meal. (I used to think there was something so bad about this but the more I asked around I have found this is completely normal.) I just know that if I want to value my peace for the rest of my life going on a restrictive diet is NOT for me.

I thought that it would be fitting for my first post back on this blog to not only write my updates to you on what has been going on during this new weight loss and fitness journey, but to also show you with a nice before and after photo. I personally find photos to be super inspiring and also a great way to show progress. I originally took the photo on the left on Feb. 1, 2020 and the one on the right on Mar. 10, 2020. The crazy part is, I didn't start taking working out and eating better until Mar. 2, 2020. I'm not 100% sure if the progress is from the first week of "officially" starting my journey, or if it was over the course of the month. Regardless, here it is.

(These photos are completely unedited besides from the preset filter I used on VSCO, the collage, the background, and the text I added. I shouldn't have to disclaim these things however the Internet gets wild sometimes.)

In the past I've been super reluctant to taking "before" or "progress" photos in fear that I would never accomplish any of my goals and I would be stuck looking at the failure for many months and years to come. I will say, if you feel the same do it. Because when you finally do start making progress photos like this will push you to keep it up and keep going.

I have a lot more to say but for now we will save it for another post! :) If you have any questions or want to chat feel free to DM me on IG @cicidawn. My inbox is always open.

Until next time,
