A LOT can change in a year....

Remember this? A year ago today I wrote this. And do you know what? It's good to re-read it and remember. I am so proud of myself. And this week, where I have struggled with getting back into good and healthy habits (read 'stopping eating bloody CAKE') after my holiday-of-sorts, it kinda puts things in perspective and, I'll be honest' has pulled me back from the brink of slipping into workout madness in a bid to see a result on the scale this weekend. I cannot live my life like that! In perspective, this is my 3rd month of maintenance. All things considered, it's a jolly good place to be and I have worked HARD to get here. Unfortunately, the hard work ain't over, and as my good friend Jen often says - this healthy vibe is for the rest of our lives. For me this week it has meant trying to eat cleaner, prepare more meals from scratch instead of winging it, getting my workouts in order, and prioritising my health. Because at the end of the day, there's only me who can look after I'm gonna.
Thought it was high time for an updated photo....hahaha. So here I am, ready for a crazy night out in Liverpool with my girls (the night we *should* have been flying out to Gran Canaria). We had a Pirate theme (long story). But it's good to compare this shot with the infamous 'green dress' shot!!

And one final thing before I go, make sure you visit Jack Sh*t for this inspired idea and email in your message!!!!! I've done mine and I am soooo looking forward to seeing what Jack does with our offerings! (Make sure to read the legal disclaimer - lol!)
Have a happy, healthy rest of the week compadres!
Love Lizzie xoxo

A much can happen in a year. You are so awesome for making sure that, one year later, you can look back and be proud of how far you've come.
