One Year Ago Today
Wow. I forgot to say so much in this video because I was just so overwhelmed. Thanks to Facebook for reminding me of such a momentous occasion. Im probably going to forget a lot right now as well since I have to be at work in an hour, but Ill try.
This year has be so tough. Mentally and physically. But almost every day I tried to keep in mind my goal and it has been the most rewarding commitment I have ever made. EVERY SINGLE DAY. (I feel like I type that a lot). I never realized the importance of consistency more than I do now as well as the fulfillment of hard work. I've said it before and I'll say it again, my weight loss was a secondary change to the change I made in my mind. I decided to change my life, and I decided that even when it was hard, it would be more rewarding to follow through on my word to myself. Some days are harder than others. Some days I still feel like poop even after I work out. These are just the ups and downs of life.
This year was filled with a lot more vegetables than I ever have eaten in my entire life. Also more water than ever imaginable. Running, Spin Classes, Hot Yoga, and the torturous weight lifting. Cherry Blossom 10-milers and Half-Marathons. Girls Night Out (GNO) with long nights of dancing in high heels. Traveling to Planet Fitness' and meeting incredible individuals helping change lives and the ones that are there to change their own. Break-ups and Make-ups. Learning that being a Bartender is an incredibly rewarding job. I am inspired by the people who are inspired by me.
I look forward to another year of self-discovery. The constant balance on implimenting structure in addition to enjoying life with food, friends, and fun. Always striving to be open and vulnerable but know that I am (most of the time) stronger than I think I am.
I forget to pat myself on the back a lot of the time...I think we all do. Its looked down upon to be so brave to say, "I AM PROUD OF WHAT I HAVE ACCOMPLISHED"
BUT LET ME BE BRAVE AN SAY< I WORKED MY ASS OFF THIS YEAR AND I AM PROUD OF WHAT I HAVE ACCOMPLISHED!!!
I just wanted to share a moment with you of vulnerability. There was no plan to do this post, as I just was reflecting the moment I opened my "Memories" on Facebook.
What a year it has been. Take a moment. Let keep it going...to another good year.
