After I gained 150 pounds there were many things that people said ( And i allowed myself to believe) that i couldnt do. "You cant wear that" "YOu cant do that" " I prolly cant ride that ride" blah blah nonsense.

The number one thing I was always afraid to try again was running. I used to LOVE to run. Id do it for fun. The wind in my hair, felt like there was no ground under my feet: my mom couldnt stop me lol. But then i got weighed down from all the weight and negative thinking and not wanting to be made a fool of for being the "fat girl trying to run". BUt today something amazing happend:

It all occured by accident.

Me and my mother share a car. I wanted to go to the gym and she needed to go somewhere, so i decided to walk to the gym so she could have the car ( the gym is only about a half a mile away). I get to the gym and looked at my cell phone . My mom had txted me "WHERED TO PUT THE KEYSS??" At that moment i put my hand in my pocket and felt the keys in there! OOPS! I SPRINTED home. (Now yall when i say sprinted i mean i hauled complete tail up outta the gym and ran like someone was chasing me back to my house.) lol

Once i hit the door my lungs felt like they were on fire lol and i was breathing sooo heavy and my legs were pulsing. After i calmed down a bit i relized something: I FELT AMAZING!! I immediately went outside with my little brother and did 10 double sets of 5 second sprints!! I followed that with some ab ripper x! When running it felt like nothing else mattered and I was running over every negative thought and word about me. I WAS ALMOST IN TEARS!

Finna incorporate it everyday into my workouts!!

If i can do this, what else can i do???

Be blessed,

    AMAZING! I have always feared running because it leaves me breathless and I'm always embarrassed of what people might think of me! This was so motivating. Thanks for posting. Your right..imagine all the things we could do if we didn't let anything come in our way! emoticon emoticon
