"Here's to US. Here's to ordering a salad when you really wanted a burger. Here's to making an ass out of yourself in combat cardio class. Here's to drinking more water than you thought was humanly possible. Here's to 5 more minutes on the elliptical. Here's to working out twice as much as your skinny friend. Here's to saying goodbye to the old you & falling in love with the new, improved, healthier you, the YOU that you really are, the YOU that you are becoming. Here's to looking in the mirror or jumping on the scale & seeing no changes BUT putting on your Nike's & hitting the gym anyways. Here's to carrots & shin splints & sweatshirts & perseverance & sore muscles & stinky socks & 7am Yoga classes & falling down & getting back up - - -And here's to doing it all over again tomorrow." - - Unknown - -
