Being Happy is Hard
Sunday, December 07, 2014
Being happy is hard on you. For a long time I was doing a fantastic job taking care of myself. I was eating mostly organic, running and working out, signing up for 5ks and even got a PR on a 5k About a year ago. Almost to the date actually. Today I am 40lbs heavier than I was on that day. A lot has happened to me since then in all fairness. Abusive relationship, Job loss, loss of everything I knew, forced to go back into the part-time workforce, forced to relocate back to my home state. But I also found a wonderful man that loves me for who I am and is the most supportive human being I have ever met. I have also settled into a new job and career quite nicely and have found a new town to call home. But I also have found comfort in food. I have a terrible sweet tooth and I LOVE LOVE LOVE to bake. But more than that, I love to eat. And I have seriously let myself go. On top of gaining the weight I have just let my skin go, my health overall has taken a downward spiral. Now is my time. Today. Not Monday, not January 1st, not the new year, But NOW. TODAY. THIS MOMENT. This is my time. I will make this change. I will start over. I will succeed.
