Has someone ever told you something that made you so happy you felt like you might burst?
Well this weekend that happened to me.
I was spending my weekend with my boyfriend of 4 years and he was jokingly showing off his muscles, which always seem to bounce back any time he heads to the gym.
He was pushing on his abs (which are pretty solid) and said “Look that’s 2 weeks of progress”
And I said “Look that’s a year of progress” and pushed on my flabby mcflabster of a stomach.
Then he looked at me and got super serious. And said
“No!... That’s a year of progress”, pointing to my clearly visible collar bone
“that’s a year of Progress” touching my hip bone which I am honestly so proud of since I have never been able to feel it before.
“and that’s a years worth of progress” pointing to my smile.
OHHH MYYY GOOSSSH. I about died and went to heaven I was so happy.
I was happy because it was possibly the sweetest thing that anyone has ever said to me, but I was also happy because it’s true.
I am coming onto my year sparkaversary and even though I am only halfway to my goal I couldn’t be happier with my progress. I literally have changed the shape of my body and changed my life.
Now I am getting ready to move back into school and I am creating my super healthy shopping list and I am going to continue the amazing changes I started in the beginning of last year. It is going to be awesome and I am going to continue this amazing journey.
Thank you everyone for your support and thank you Jeff for making me smile every day.
