After taking a picture in the exact same mirror, in almost the exact same pose, just 11 months apart, I couldn’t help but share my little transformation with my FiC followers.

This first picture was taken at the end of April 2014. I had JUST started doing squats (combined with other leg work) consistently. At the time, I had no complaints about my body, other than the little bit of cellulite on the back of my legs, and my tiny booty. But for the most part, I was happy and confident; and really proud of my success.

This second picture was taken in March 2015; after almost a year of doing squats consistently. And when I say squats, I don’t mean crazy crossfit heavy-weight squats. I mean the regular squats (some with weight, some without) I post about all the time.

This is proof my workouts work, y’all. I’m not just feeding you a bunch of BS. I promise! Squats, lunges, deadlifts…do them.

And here’s the deal — I was not in any way, shape, or form unhappy with my body. I just simply wanted to see what consistent leg and booty work could do for me.

It’s amazing what the human body is capable of. That’s the beautiful thing about fitness — There’s never an end goal; it’s always a journey. And remember, I’m on the journey with you!

We’re in this shit together, sister. So don’t give up. You got this!

Stay fit, friends. Xo

Love, Mattie Claire
