Reflection

Today I woke up and I was very down and unmotivated. I have been feeling like I can't do this anymore but I really do know I can. It's this same old battle that I always have with myself. I realized that I shouldn't be feeling this way and got out of bed and did my workout. Boy, I did NOT want to do it. After 10 mins of doing it I was already feeling great. After the 40 mins. were over, I was so proud of myself that I actually pushed through. I felt AMAZING and felt like I could have done more! I decided to go through older photos from a few months ago. I wanted to compare it to a picture I took today. I couldn't find the one I was looking for but I found something even better (or worse since I was so much bigger then). I put both pictures side by side:

I cannot believe I looked THAT AWFUL. I let myself go BIG time.  It actually breaks my heart that I once looked like that. It's okay though, I am never going to look back or be that way again. I am going to keep pushing each day as hard as I can to be where I want to be. I want to live a long and healthy life and I am on that journey. If I can push this hard so can anyone else. We have only one life to live, why not make the best out of it?
