I lose track of the things I have to be grateful for sometimes. But then the little things come along and remind me of all the things that make my life as wonderful as it is.
Over the past few months, I've had so many great things happen. I had my first ballroom competition in which my parnter and I swept the Newcomer division with 1st places. We both then also proceeded to secure officer positions as Competition Directors in our ballroom club. Along came finals and I've at least secured an A in Physics so far.
But I think what has made me really happy today is the fact that I feel so much healthier than I have in a really long time. Finals and the busy life had me down for a few weeks because there was just so much stuff to get done. And yet today, when I FINALLY came home, I found that regardless of all the junk I ate during those stressful weeks and the cruddy feelings I had for being too tired to resist the lure of easy, unhealthy food, I'm so much more fit now than I was last year. Even though I don't go to the gym and even though I refuse to run, I have gotten more fit. I can cycle just as long, if not longer than I was able to last summer. I am able to hula-hoop for the longest time I can remember. The scale hasn't moved at all and if anything, it's gone up. But you know what, I can do more physically than I have in a long time. And that's all I care about.
Little steps. Big victories.
