Something has happened in the last little while.
It started subtle at first. A stirring within me that told me that the status quo was no longer good enough. That something . . . scratch that . . . a lot needed to change.
After all, I’m the girl who worked her butt off while in law school and right after graduation to go from this:
Only to end up somewhere in the middle, by the time I moved to Vancouver:
I would like to pretend that I know entirely how I got from B to C but the truth is I don’t. For the rest of my days, I will remember watching the number on the scale go up overnight. Every night. And not small amounts either – most days it was pounds.
I wasn’t eating enough calories to justify that change and I certainly wasn’t a sloth but sure enough the change happened. My hunch is that my body was having a hard time dealing with the stress of our life in the Rockies . . .
But that’s not where the story ends.
Since moving to Vancouver three months ago, I feel more alive. Happier certainly. And definitely more in love with the Husband. I guess you call that being joyful.
And amidst that joy my body has reacted. I’ve noticed my shape start to change and the pounds slowly begin to melt away.
If I had to hazard a guess, I would say I’m making my way towards my happy weight. But I’m not content to let my body slowly get there – I’m determined to help it along. Because I don’t want to be the girl who used to run . . . used to train like it was her job . . . used to eat like a saint . . . used to be thinner.
I want to be that girl again! In fact, I want to be that girl NOW!
So although you can still expect to read restaurant reviews and blog posts about travel, you should expect to see a whole lot more about health, wellness, clean eating, and fitness. Because that’s where my head is at right now.
It’s where it needs to be.
I do hope you’ll join me in this journey because let’s face it, I count on all of you for support!
Question: Do you think you’ve reached your happy weight? Do you even believe there’s such a thing?
