Two Months

So I never actually posted my measurements or a pic of me after a month.  After taking that picture I realized I hadn't seen as drastic results as I wanted.  It is hard to realize that it takes time, effort, and sadly, a complete obsession with becoming healthy to see results (Note: not an unhealthy just have to think about food before eating and calories while working out, which basically flows through your entire day). 
Although I am healthy, I haven't been able to change my overall lifestyle.  I have made some big improvements and better food choices.  I try to eat more fruits and veggies, carbs in the morning, incorporate chia seeds, and stay away from overly processed food (I acutally have nothing against processed foods as long as you are also eating whole fruits and veggies - I'll write more on that in a different post).
My boyfriend and I are constantly trying to find what works for us.  I love pole dancing, but it is super far away.  I am trying to save so I can put a pole in our house to practice.  I also love running.  I have gotten up to running a very slow mile without killing my knee.  Baby steps....  Lifting is also awesome.  The boyfriend is obsessed, he is a beast and I love it.
Without further adieu, I present to you my body after two months of attempting to be conscious of food and excercise!

I am sorry these aren't the best pics to compare.  The bikini pic is from vacation :)
It takes a lot for me to post these, so any positive feedback is welcome. 

I don't see much of a change in looks, and actually I think my before picture might be better (the before picture was taken in the morning and the after pic was taken during the day..I always feel like that makes a difference), but I feel a lot healthier.  I will keep experimenting with my body and diet.  Hopefully together we will become fit and healthy.

XO Lauren
