This week I turned 26 and I was able to celebrate with my friends and family. I'm so thankful for the people around me who love me so much. #blessed.
Remember when I had crazy long hair? Those are the days of the pasts, because my hair is so short I can barely put it up into a man-bun.
Season 3 of Orange Is The New Black is now on Netflix. If you want to know where I'll be for the next 24 hours, it's locked in my room watching Piper slay.
I've been on a very long journey to having a healthy lifestyle. This year I've been consciously trying to eat healthier and exercise regularly. As a result, I have lot a substantial amount of weight, and I'm very proud of myself!
These past couple of weeks have been crazy because I've been celebrating so many things. As a result I haven't been making the time to go to the gym, or eat a healthier diet. In other words-- I've been eating out A LOT and doing nothing about it.
I digress. Yesterday I was having one of those days where I just felt bloated and gross and at the end of the day I happened to catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and thought, "wow, I look fat today". I KNOW. What was I thinking? I haven't always felt comfortable with my body, but that is no way to talk to myself! I probably did something I shouldn't have done in that moment, and weighed myself on the scale. To my horror, saw that I had gained almost 10 lbs since I last weighed myself almost three weeks ago. I felt really down on myself, "how could I let this happen?" I thought.
Today I'm turning over a new leaf. No, I'm not professing that today is a new day-- that I will eat better and go to the gym (although that is exactly what I intend on doing as well). Today I am promising myself to never feel the way I did yesterday ever again. I'm human. I will fluctuate. I am beautiful no matter what size, and I won't let something like 10 lbs stop me from living a better life. I will be body-positive whether I am at my smallest weight, or my largest. And I invite all of your guys to join me. Let's love our bodies.
Have a great weekend!
