Labor Day usually signals the end of summer and the beginning of Autumn for many, but this weekends weather was a perfect reminder that it is still Summer, at least until the 22nd! I'm fighting every urge in me not to pull out my Autumn décor, listen to folksy rainy day tunes, and consume as much pumpkin to my hearts content.
With a three day weekend we made sure to enjoy some time by the pool and a perfect summer day is not complete without watermelon, in our case watermelon popsicles. Great for fighting off the heat and since it's made with real fruit no added sugar!
I wanted to be honest and transparent; I'm not skinny and weeks ago you wouldn't catch me outside in a bathing suit to save my life! I have been working on my overall health the last 8 weeks and even though I'm only 17 pounds down from my highest I have felt immense confidence and happiness in my accomplishments. Like anyone else I've had my off days but I've always jumped back the next day, something that wouldn't have happened a year or two ago. If you've caught my stories on Instagram you know I've been going to the gym regularly too! These photos from this weekend are a perfect testament to my growth; accepting and embracing body positivity, and I'm so proud. I can't wait to share more of where this journey continues to take me!
