On Friday, she had a bit of an epiphany after taking a selfie in the mirror, which revealed her incredibly toned abs.
"My fitness journey will be a life long journey. Fitness is not about being better than someone else… It's about being better than you used to be. I'm not where I want to be and who knows if I ever will be," she captioned the photo she shared on Instagram. "But I am healthier than ever and due to my consistent workouts, I am slowly seeing results. Hi baby abs 🙋!! I see you!!! I hope to meet your other ab friends soon 😝 (yes I'm talking to my muscles. I've never met most of them before)."
An hour later, she returned to Instagram, this time posting a before and after photo of herself:
"Looking back at pictures of myself I didn't realize at the time how unhealthy my lifestyle actually was. People love to call me the fat one but as weird as it sounds I still don't think I would consider myself fat back then. Definitely overweight and unhealthy, yes. About two years ago I decided to turn to fitness as a form of therapy and as a stress reliever. I started slow and eventually I started working out 4 to 5 days a week," she wrote in the photo's caption.
She added, "We all have to start somewhere and doing something is better than nothing at all. Start small so you don't get discouraged and give up. Remember it is all about consistency. There are no quick fixes if you want long-term results. Working out is a huge part of my life now. I genuinely enjoy sweating out my frustrations and living a healthier life. My workouts are not all about vanity. They are about clarity for my mind and soul. We all have different journeys in life, make sure your journey is for you and you alone. Remember in the end the turtle won the race. Slow and steady. dedication and tenacity."
Alright! Now who is ready to hit the gym?
