"Go, you!" :
My new "thing" to do lately (I mean, besides sleeping for 12 hours haha) is to say "Go, you!" when I see someone working really hard at the gym (or outside running or walking). I don't say it loud enough for anyone to hear me, but I feel like it's a little extra positive energy in the room. It motivates me, mostly.

It's not worth getting jealous about someone else. It's definitely not worth putting someone down (out loud or not). That's not the kind of energy you need (regardless of if a person's attitudes affects others or not) because it only makes you feel badly about yourself.

I'm done (at least I'm trying to be) comparing myself to others. Sure, I want to have thighs like some of the girls I see... but I also know that I have a different lifestyle, genetics, and goals. I didn't grow up with healthy parents or grandparents as examples. I'm done using that as an excuse, too. I'm happy being me, and I'm happy knowing what I'm doing to make my life healthier. People at the gym only see me on the treadmill for a few hours a week (if they're there every night like me). They don't know that I eat fruit every day, that I WALKED to the gym for an extra mile of exercise, that I bring a lunch to work every day that's healthy.

They don't know those things about me, and I don't know anything about the other women I see (or men, honestly).

Next time you see someone working hard for their goals, cheer them on a little bit. Hopefully, it'll lift your mood that same way it does for me.

I cut my hair last night.


This is nothing new. I actually trim it every month myself.

But last night... I don't know. I thought I had gone crazy when I saw the big long chuck I had cut off to make side bangs...

Oh. No. Ohhhh. F.

It was rough. So I brushed it out... and saw this limp chunk of hair hanging by my ear (I made sure to cut them at least that long). It looked bad.

BUT. whew, thankfully...

After a shower and a deep condition, it felt better. Looked better, even wet.
I put some gel in it and hoped for the best in the morning.

Ta-da! It worked out. It curls wonderfully. And the body of it is thinned out quite nicely.
I won against the scissors. Haha.

It was scary last night though.



Good is the enemy of great. Most people will look back and realize they did not have a great life because it's just so easy to settle for a good life. -Jim Collin
