    Lightbulb Believe in Yourself

    Jonah started soccer practice yesterday. I love it when the boys go through their seasons. There is no better way to get cardio in!

    The second he hit the field, I took off running!

    I ran past people eating.

    I ran past obese people just sitting. Waiting. Doing nothing.

    I ran past people saying, “I should get out there too.”

    And I ran past one man who said, “I get hot just looking at you. How do you do that?”

    But here’s the thing y’all…and…you knew the thing was coming. There’s always a thing!

    He was sitting on the hood of his car next to his daughter. Both were overweight. Both were just sitting there, watching me jog.

    Had to be like watching marathon coverage on ESPN.

    “Oh look, she’s running.”

    “Look, daddy, she’s still running.”

    So when the man says that to me, I reply with, “You’re already hot just being outside. You might as well do something worthy of a sweat.”

    I say this over my shoulder, of course. I wasn’t there to chit chat. I was getting my cardio out of the way!

    And the next lap, he hollers out, “How far you going?”

    And over my shoulder I say, “Four miles.”

    “Oh. I don’t see how you can do that!”

    And I tell him, “I do it, because I want it THAT bad.”

    And I do, y’all. I really do.

    But here’s what I was thinking last night…

    It’s been about four years since the first time I laced up a pair of Nikes and took off running across that soccer field. And I guarantee you no one thought a 256 pound woman would last.

    And they were right…that 256 pounds became 246.

    236….226…and she broke 200…and she just kept running past the people who did not believe it could be done.

    And it matters not who believes in you, just as long as you believe in yourself.

    I did…and that’s why I’m here.

    Alright I'm gonna have to call you on that one! You know you have all kinds of appeal and tonnes to spare! Your attitude draws people...and that new body yours doesn't hurt any either . You don't need to be so modest with us here, get a little more swagger in that step of yours!

    Well it's nice to return the favour that you've done for a lot already. I'm off for the next couple weeks so I'll miss reading your inspiring posts but it'll give me something to read when I get back. Off for a little vacation. Going out into woods for a little camping, hunting, fishing and best of all relaxation!!! Well after today anyway. Here I am up before 4 just so I can catch a ferry to get to a meeting on time. I already feel like this I have only been up for 45 minutes! Gonna be long day. Light at the end of tunnel though...or maybe that is just the dawn . Have a great day!

    Default What I Deserve Is...

    There was cake in the break room at work yesterday. Know why I didn’t have any? There was cake the day before. And pie the day before that. Two pies last Friday.

    In fact, I can’t recall a day there wasn’t something in the break room.

    Too many times we feel deprived when we can’t have what others are having. Yet others are looking at us thinking, “What are they doing that I’m not? Why are they so fit? Why do they look the way I want to look?”

    Well, I can tell you!

    I’m not having cake in the break room!

    But I have learned to look at deprivation in a different light.

    I am not deprived if I can’t have cookies, cake, or pie.

    I was deprived when I couldn’t cross my legs, sit in a booth comfortably, or had to worry about how many airline tickets to buy…for just me.

    I was deprived when I didn’t know they joy of a good workout. I was missing out.

    I was deprived when I had no visible muscles. Robbing myself of the joy of not cringing at my own reflection in the mirror.

    And I was deprived when I sat at home eating while life passed me by. Not knowing the joys that were in store for me.

    I spent years eating anything I wanted thinking I deserved to eat what I wanted because life was short.

    I had it upside down, y’all! Totally upside down.

    I deserved to be happy. I deserved to be thin. I deserved to be comfortable in my own skin. I just didn’t know it.

    So I had to let go of some thing: cake in the break room. And that’s OK. GirlyMuscle didn’t have any birthday cake. And we all know Ondrea isn’t having cake these days. They don’t deserve cake…they deserve the awesome, fit bodies that come with choosing not to eat cake…even on a birthday! (Wow, Girly! Wow!!)

    And I had to learn that missing out did not mean I was depriving myself. It meant I was out there finding what I deserved.

    And I don’t miss any of the things I gave up to find what I deserved to have.

    And there will be cake in the break room today, but I won’t have any…because I deserve to be happy…and that cake is in my way.

    Or as Zanelike said it yesterday…I deserve to have a little more swagger in my step!!!

    I agreeeee with Tony CRAZYYYYY motivtion. I stopped in at the RIGHT time

    I work at a tanning salon and today one of our regualrs brought in a BAG STUFFED full of halloween candies,twizzlers,M&M's, Butterfingers,starburst, COOKIES w/ ICING..ughhh.. So as soon as I put her in her bed I RAN the bag to the backroom and shut the door! lol

    Then I hop on here, read your post and looked at the situation in a new light

    I went and opened the door, smiled at the bag... and thought... "I'm not missing a thing not being able to eat that candy, THEY are missing out what it feels like to be one step closer to the body I desire to have"


    You rock girl!!

    And your comment helped me today! Someone brought a cookie to my desk. My VERY favorite kind. A thin sugar cookie with the right kind of icing.

    And I had JUST read your comment, and I thought there is NO WAY I'm having that when Miss Muscle just used MY words to turn down CANDY!

    So...it's all good! We motivate each other on this site! WOO HOO!!!

    That's an awesome thing to realize. And you know...if you like coffee...you can put just a little cocoa powder in it with some splenda....good stuff.

    And about that candy...take a look at the people buying it. It is never the people who look the way we want to look! They already have too much candy in their bag!

    IT feels like LOVE IS CONTAGIOUS & it feels better to give LOVE rather than spread hate.

    all the LOVE makes me think of the movie PAY IT FORWARD.
