It’s a Journey

When I opened up my instagram today I was met with a fitgirl photo from fitgirl_michelle2015. The photo on the left showed her at the beginning of her journey 4 months ago and the right photo was her recent photo. On the right she looked strong, happy, fit. Before and after photos are powerful because we see the results, we see a side we relate to and we see a side we want to achieve. But the problem is we see nothing else. We don’t see the struggle, the sick days, the days we fell off the training schedule, the tears, the disappointment. Instead, we idolize the desirable pic.

That’s my problem. I tell myself I want to get fit and I’ll start out but, oh, if I don’t see results I get discouraged and eat poorly and I have to start all over again. Well, what if this time, I keep it, I adopt it as my way of life and I keep at it? I want to find out how I would feel being strong, fit and confident. It’s worth it. I want to do it.

That Run Sucked…

I thought I would be somewhat impulsive. I was going to turn left to do my new route but I turned right and decided I would revisit my old route, just do it backwards to switch it up a little. I’m sure I was doomed from the start. It was just poor. I turned a block earlier to cut the run down. At one point I walked a little but then was motivated to run when crows started cawing at me and following me!! But then yeah.

Just a not fun run. So I’m thinking I may cut back on my carb intake. I do think I consume too many carbs. Maybe it was those two chocolate bars from yesterday. I don’t know what came over me but I had a Wunderbar and a Twix! Haha I confess! 😛

But yeah, I think I need to be more conscious of my eating habits. But anyway, it’s the long weekend! I’m working today but then my parents will be here! Yaaaay!! Alright talk later!
