Nothing in life is always easy
Some days are more difficult than others
And harder when your health goes awry
Your mind says yes, your body says no
The sickly, chubby girl inside me sees these pics
That IS me?
I have strikes against me - Hashimotos, vein disease, then had a total thyroidectomy... I need a pill a day to keep me alive.
You read that right.
I do not feel as terrible as I once did but I often do not feel well and had to adjust
I'm tired. I hurt.
I will never beat anyone in a race, never run a marathon or even walk a 5k.
I make the most of days when I feel my best
While I make the best of days I do not
If I focused on what I can't do, I'd never do anything
Instead, I focus on what I CAN do
I could make excuses...I could blame the illnesses.... Instead I made changes
I may not be rail thin .. Never will be. I will keep my 32DD mommy curves, thank you
I don't need wraps or shakes or pills
I do not spend hours at the gym every day
Or starve or go to bed hungry
I do not do hours of sweaty cardio, either
It IS a constant work in progress
It IS mind over matter
It IS a choice and deciding what you want to be
It IS how badly do you wish to feel better... and live better
It IS worth it
WHAT do I do? I lift weights. Heavy weights, a few times a week.
Here's to me - age 44- au natural with no starvation diet and no MLM gimmicks:
