I have two exciting things to write about:
1. It was so warm this morning on my way into work that I had to take off my spring jacket!!!!
2. I am wearing a size 6 skirt right now!
Neither of these announcements may seem like exciting news to you, but I can’t seem to wipe this grin off my face. I love the summer, and it is almost here! Winter was SO last season, aint nobody got time fo dat.
Summer though, ahhhh, it fills me with so much energy, and passion, and pure unadulterated joy.
I have been working so hard lately, and I am happy to report that monumental changes are afoot. For one, I quit my old job. Yeah, that’s right. See ya! BAM (that’s the sound of me happily slamming the door shut on that part of my life). I have a new job that has been going really swell. It’s a bit closer to ma maison, and because of the warm weather this week, I have officially started running home every day.
For another thing, I have 100% committed myself to transforming my body.
Even though that statement is probably the most pretentious thing I have ever written, it doesn’t detract from the truth. I’ve been kicking ass, and it’s time I told some people about it!
I have been working steadily at attaining my fitness goals for 7 weeks now: waking up at 4:45 in the morning to follow my workout plan (weights, interval training, and cardio); following a strict (yet lovely) diet of whole unprocessed foods; learning how to love myself more, and; learning how to delve unabashedly into my passion for all things fitness and nutrition. So far, I have seen amazing results.
There was a time in my life where the biggest size in a clothing store did not fit me. For realsies! Though it has been awhile since I have been in that situation, I still remember how it made me feel.
Now, because of my dedication, I’m learning to be happier. For me this doesn’t mean fitting in with unhealthy, yet normalized, standards of ‘beauty’. Fuck that. Bitches need to eat some sandwiches and chill the heck out.
No, for me it means finding out what my body is capable of, finding the time to do what I have always felt passionately about, pushing more weight and getting stronger, and expanding my definition of what is possible.
Size 6 is just that, a size. It seems silly to get giddy about. But what it means to me is so much more.
I have 5 more weeks to go, and I will post more about my overall results when I am through. I don’t want to jinx it, but I promise I will be more transparent when it’s time to be.
Happy May 1st everyone!
