I seriously cannot believe it has been 10 years since I made the decision to change my life. I remember day one, January 13, 2012. This was the day I told myself I wasn’t going to be fat anymore and hate the way my body looked. This was one of the hardest days of my life. No one wants to admit they have a problem, but I knew I needed a change. This was the picture I posted to remind myself every single day that I had to start to be great.
Over the last 10 years, I have had just as many ups as I have had downs. The days are never all easy. Some days are still a struggle. Some days just play suck! Other days are amazing and I feel like I could climb mountains. With all that being said, am I a size zero? NOPE! Not even close. Am I healthy and still focused on living a healthy life and setting an example for my daughter? Hell Yes!
I look back at the last 10 years and all the things I accomplished that I never in a million years would have thought were possible. I ran a marathon!! If you would have told me in 2012 that I would be running 26.2 miles, I would have bet money you would be wrong. But the thing is – your body will do what your mind tells it is capable of doing. Your mind will give out long before your body will when you are pushing yourself to the extreme. Your mind will tell you it cant be done. That is when you tell your mind “It Can!”. That is when you show yourself You Can!
So keep moving forward. Everyday is another opportunity to do something for yourself. Everyday is a new day to start something new.
