I'm a firm believer in taking pics to measure progress. Fitness is an every day journey, with struggles & bad habits to overcome like anyone. But I treat every day like a new opportunity to prove something to myself, learn something new, & try again. If you're afraid of gaining too much muscle, as you can see on the right, it's a toned look when you're not flexing. If you're afraid of the number that muscle shows on the scale, ditch the scale It's a deceiving liar most of the time anyway!
