Tonight will be a short post, because I just finished homework and I’m exhausted (and still hormonal – sorry for the TMI).
However, I just had to share that today was a downright amazing day.
It started off like this:
And ended like this:
I couldn’t focus on anything at work. My brain kept firing off, “I’m finally past 262. I’m almost out of the 260’s. I am, literally, the smallest I have ever been since I was a teenager.” All of a sudden I was overcome again with that feeling of assurance that I was going to see this through. That this was my life now and I was enjoying it! I didn’t dread going to the gym anymore, I didn’t roll my eyes and groan at the sight of carrots, I no longer scoff at the idea of protein shakes (thanks Angela!) I felt like I glowed the entire day.
The feeling carried through to the gym and I was bound and determined to finish that run.
I felt like I was going to throw up.
I had to slow down.
But I did it. I might have been hanging onto the sides of the treadmill for the last 30 seconds, but I made it.
And I’m never looking back.
Today’s quote was inspired by my wonderful new friends at Fit Nation Baby!
“There is a real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment.” ~Norman Vincent Peale
