One year later….(my 8-week post-op musings)

So earlier this week I took a picture of me sipping tea the other day, and as I sat here (….procrastinating doing homework), the picture looked familiar to me, and I couldn’t place why.

Then it hit me like a bolt of lightning. Last year, almost EXACTLY to the day, my fiancé and and I were visiting a friend in Scotland. We were on the Isle of Skye and Greg took a picture of me holding up a stuffed sheep.

It was that picture that made me decide to go and finally get my teeth fixed. I called my orthodontist the day after we got home and told them not to let me cancel the appointment.
I was in that exact pose this week and didn’t realize it.

Looking at those two pictures back-to-back says WONDERS about my year.

What a difference a year makes!

What a difference a year makes!

 

2013 was such a year of growth for me in so many ways, and you can see it on my face. I worked on my nutrition, I invested time and development in myself, and I tried to work smarter, not harder.
And today, 8 WEEKS post-op, the growth is literally measured on my face.

I never had the courage to get my teeth fixed completely until I became a Beachbody coach. I never had the courage to take a huge risk on myself. I never had the courage to step out of my comfort zone in order to grow into a bigger and better person.

But in 2013, I started to dream big. It was so difficult for me at first, but once I did, those dreams began to take shape in real life.

I’m not there yet, but I’m definitely on my way, and I honestly owe it all to becoming a Beachbody coach.  

 

Happy 8 week-iversary!
