Ten years ago I never would have thought that I would be living in this body. I thought I would always be a size five. The reality is that things change, nothing stays the same especially not people. When I wrote the poem, Blinded by Vanity, it came from a negative place. Where I am in my life now vanity is motivational thing.
As I continue on my healthy living journey having a personal fitness goal is encouraged. I am always thinking about how what I eat is going to affect my week i.e. how long I have to spend in the gym, how much of a cheat day I get, what events I have going on. It is constantly on my mind. Today was my god-daughters birthday sleepover and we made cupcakes. Her mother and I started eating the leftover cupcakes and with every bite I was counting carbs. Its ok I will just count today is just my cheat day and I know I have to be very strategic for the rest of the week.
