It's always about a boy. Well, not always. But a lot of times.
I dated a guy for a short period of time. It didn't work out. I thought I would be fine, but I wasn't. Every time I meet a guy I think, he could be 'the one'. And when he's not, it hurts just a little bit.
We ended it on Sunday. On Monday I spent the evening on the floor of my bedroom, feeling sorry for myself and eating a bunch of junk food I bought to make myself feel better. It didn't work. I felt horrible. I couldn't move. I kept telling myself, get up, you have work to do, it was just one guy, let it go.
So the next day, Tuesday November 19 I threw out all the crap I still had, and decided that day was as good a day as any to get back in shape.
I have been at it for 3 months! I didn't think so far ahead in the beginning, just one day at a time. But now I can say, I am so proud of myself for sticking with it as long as I did, and I truly feel that it will last this time around. I feel better, I look better, and I am learning new things about myself every day.
While I am definitely looking forward to one day meeting a great guy and sharing my life with him, this journey is about me, and learning to be the strong confident woman that I know I am meant to be. She is inside of me, and she is coming out layer by layer, pound by pound.
Thank you to everyone for all your encouragement, and you should be proud of every single one of your accomplishments, big and small.
Today was a good day, I just finished a major project at work that I've been working on for some time, and it felt really good. I did eat dinner later than usual and I was starving so I wolfed it down. But I did not overeat and I will count it as a good day.
Good night all!
