It appears that we are finally having the summer season, I have been looking forward to all winter. Minus the rain and thunderstorms we have been experiencing, I will take the sun and being able to enjoy the outdoors; you have to have some rain to enjoy the sunshine right?
I have so much to be grateful for and being able to walk around and enjoy things is one of them. Two years ago I had a major surgery in which there were complications. I was stuck indoors all summer long. Which has inspired me, along with great people in my life to work out and become more healthy. In highschool, I was always active, healthy and thin. That is my goal now as an adult. Sometimes, we have so much in life that we forget what is really important. I read a Spark article today about being your own best friend, and it rang so true to me. You really have to love yourself and take care of your body, internally and externally. If you don't...who will?
I admit, I have fallen off the beaten path and haven't stayed consistant with diet and exercise, for many reasons. But, I am determined to get back on that horse and get things on track. Yesterday evening, I tried on swimsuits, which in the past hasn't always been a great experience. But last night, I was able to embrace my curves and yes, there are areas that need improvement, but instead of getting down about it; I realized I am a work in progress and results take time. I have gone major sizes in my bra and shirts, and to me that is quite the accomplishment.
I am hoping by next summer, a brand new swimsuit is in order...=)
