Humbled and amazed!
Today has been quite a day!
First off, I am not a morning person. I hate waking up. It doesn't matter what time it is, I struggle! All week I have been going to the gym at 6 am. One of my best buddies works out with me. She keeps me accountable. Today she texted me at 5:15 am that she wasn't going to be able to go with me. That was it... that was the text I waited for all week. I could go back to sleep. But I didn't. I realized that I wasn't going to the gym at 6 am for anyone but ME! I got up and had a great workout. (I did miss her terribly... and I am sorry for calling her out in my blog, maybe she won't read this LOL)
That was my first breakthrough. Now, because I am a teacher, I am not "working" right now. I thought I would take a nap. As I put my doggies in bed (because they are old dachshunds and can't get on the bed on their own) I realized that I had so much I wanted to do today that I really should do those things. So, I got up and I rearranged furniture, organized my bedroom, and made a pile of things I needed to get rid of. Wow! Thank God I didn't take that nap.
Next, I got a call from my mom telling me that my dad will be inducted into the Florida Athletic Coaches Association Hall of Fame next January! So proud of him.
Then I went to my son's football practice. I got wrapped up in some drama, and I started questioning coaching decisions that honestly aren't my place to question. As a football coach's daughter, I SHOULD know better. I backed off that situation and have decided to let things happen the way they are supposed to happen.
Finally, I came home and created this before/now picture. When I looked at it, really looked at it, I realized that I have come so far. I have been focusing so much on the number on the scale. It has been "weighing me down" (English teachers love puns!) I can see the difference I have made in myself. The scale has never been my friend. Even when I was "skinny" I weighed a lot more than I thought I should. I should know better. Looking at that picture made me proud! Then I posted this photo and WOW! I feel so loved! My friends, my supporters, all of you have blessed me in so many ways. The support I get on a daily basis humbles me. I could cry because I feel so special!
Thank you for following my blog or my facebook or just my journey! You all build me up! I feel like I can do it! I can reach my goals and surpass them!!! Thank you!
