I feel way better when I work out. I feel better when I'm eating healthy. I'm drawing a line in the sand and I am committed to putting me first. I have always put everyone else first. I'm worth being number one in my life.
I know that I can't do this alone and am back to have community and support. I can't wait to meet you all. I have friends that I have met on here and still in contact with them and excited to be back.
You do indeed need to make excuses... excuses can be good, i make excuses to walk every day regardless of weather, i make excuses to eat properly daily to worry about my health, to meet my fears and challenge myself daily.
You don't have to do it, only do today, one small step at a time, one small challenge at a time, put enough steps together and you can topple mountains.
Round two !
You can be a warrior or you can be a slave.
When the body is pushed beyond limits, rely on your heart to survive.
