It was such a passing glimpse before I went to the gym, but I noticed it, my abs are WAY more defined than when I was recovering/when I was twenty pounds lighter, and what makes this all the more better: this is a product of my hardwork and new healthy choices. Yes, I’ve had A LOT of bumps on the way, but ultimately I’m doing this the right way, the hard way, and the satisfying way. :) I’ve never been more proud of myself.
Sure, they’re not perfectly chisled, or totally flat, but they’re THERE and they’re STRONG and they’re NOTICEABLE.
If I could - I’d tell you all how much encounter influenced me, the nitty gritty about said ups and downs, and how my best friend is currently playing a huge role in this, but I really should just keep my mouth shut and be happy. All I know is that I’m coming to appreciate my body - even if I have my off days.
:) Oh! And I made vegan gingerbread cookies on Thursday with all my theatre friends! I indulged a bit, but kept a balance between healthy and sweet tooth! I even fit in a workout :) I’m so happy!
But aside from recovering and how my body looks, let’s mention how I feel. Like I said, ups and downs, Encounter opened my eyes unbelievable amounts, I cried harder than I have all my life, and I FINALLY - FINALLY - let out something that’s been bothering me.
And my running! I’ve improved so much! My mile is <3 thought I have to say my distance is horrible. I really was built for sprinting - my soccer coaches were right. AND WEIGHTS OH MY GOODNESS, MY ARMS AREN’T TOTALLY PATHETIC NOW, JUST A LITTLE PATHETIC<3
xD Worlds to improve, but gradually seeing change each day. <3
AND NOW FOR A REST DAY FULL OF HOLIDAY CHEER!
