You know what? You guys are amazing. Really and truly amazing. I felt the need to write that wordy post because it was on my mind for a few days. But wow…you guys really helped me get over that little bump in the road. Today, I woke up determined to take control again and I am happy to say so far so good 🙂
I took a look at my Dear Body post and I realized just how far I’ve come. Plus I have a goal! A big goal! I cannot run 21 half or full marathons with the mindset I have been in. I went on a run yesterday and I wasn’t feeling to great. I blame it on the food I’ve been eating.
A goal in life that I have is to inspire people. To help them do what they dream of doing. How am I supposed to do that when I can’t even inspire myself? But that mindset is soooo gone because I am proud of who I am. I am proud of the strides I have made. Yeah there may have been a few setbacks but that isn’t what defines me. What defines me is how I get out of those setbacks. And this time, I’m coming out fighting.
Remember that roommate that wanted to lose weight? Well the other day she came up to me and said, “I think the reason I’m so motivated to get healthy this time is because I see how healthy you are.” Well shoot. I inspired one person so I want to keep going!
Oh and another thing…I ate peanut butter today and oh. my. gush. I love peanut butter. It’s delicious. It’s healthy. And it’s one of my favorite foods. I will happily eat it all day everyday because it’s good for me.
Another thing…I am giving blood tomorrow! (You guys are holding me accountable by the way.) Why life is better without an ED…I am able to give back. And I know that I need to properly fuel myself in order to even be able to give blood. So bring on the peanut butter!
So I’m really sorry for this super out of order, random post. But the basis of this post is that I’M HAPPY. Really and truly happy. You guys really helped. And I wish I could give each and everyone one of you a hug.
