Vitality Prompt 5

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

I saw this photo today and I realized I'm not a complete couch potato anymore. Yes, I do spend a lot of time sitting.... BUT I'm exercising at least 5 days a week and I'm finding more and more ways to get off my tushie. It's doing wonders for foot by the way.

Anyway, on to the prompt - Write a letter to your future self at your goal.

btw, I am going to be sad to see the end of this challenge! I love the prompts. I want more!


Dear future Butrfly,

First of all I just want to say how freaking awesome you look! Smokin'! I want to tell you how PROUD I am of your accomplishments! You hit your goal weight, which you've been wanting since middle school.... but aside from that, look at everything else you've gained!

Your diet is awesome. Look at all those veggies in your fridge! And sheer number of recipes you've tried since beginning the journey is astounding. Can you even count the number of foods you now love that you hated before?

I love that you exercise as much as you do - but you don't even think of it as exercise -- you honestly look like you're having fun... and you are aren't you?? Yeah, I could tell. Tell me, is the couch still sending you "missing you" emails, or has it finally given up hope of you coming back?

Wow. Can I just take this moment to thank you? I want to thank you SO much for all of your effort, especially the mental effort. I am so happy that I'm no longer lugging around all that mental dead weight. I am happy that you learned from all of your experiences and you treat yourself like a treasure - not a landfill. I feel so alive without all the garbage you used to fill me with - hate, anger, sadness, daily junk food, chemicals. You're always so happy and full of energy. You really figured out all the good ways to feed me.

I'd also like to say congrats for climbing Grandfather Mountain and for teaching yourself how to run again. Ssssh, don't tell the doc, but I always knew you could do it. Girl, I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us!
