I went to bed praying that my life would forever be changed by the number on the scale. Last night was a moment in time that I can look back on and say “that’s when it changed”.
I don’t want to live like this. I know how to live a healthy life. I certainly have the tools and support available at my disposal. Really, there is no excuse.
Last night was the perfect blend of truth, friends, support and relationships.
After calming down I realized that if this is as bad as it gets, then I am going to be ok. I can still succeed. Last night I was too angry too see anything clearly. But it took seeing that number on the scale to see the reality of my current lifestyle.
It was almost 9pm EST and that meant it was time for #fitblog. (If you have never joined, I highly suggest you pencil it onto your schedule sometime.) Last nights topic was about loving/dating a fit blogger. It must have also been a night of timing and fate because as soon as I saw our #fitblog topic I know my night was far from over.
In an hours time we discussed: balancing all aspects of life, healthy/active dates, and how important it is to be in a relationship with someone that also values a fit lifestyle.
Right about 10pm, as the chat was winding down, my boyfriend checked in with me via text. You know, the typical “what are you doing?” text. Given our open and honest relationship I told him about #fitblog. He asked questions and we engaged in a very real conversation surrounding the same topics I had just discussed in the chat.
Without placing blame or pointing fingers, I explained how the last few months have changed me. Sure, we eat out
some A LOT. I suppose eating out is part of the “new relationship physique”, but we have gone beyond that. I could have made better choices, but I chose not to. I also went through my “funk” and I didn’t really care.
I am a real lucky gal. You know what happened next?
He suggested we get more active and eat healthier AS A COUPLE!!
Whew! That felt like a million pounds lifted off my shoulders.
The afternoon and evening may not have been the happiest, but the night sure did end on a positive note. I got some wonderful comments, tweets and had a few much needed chats with old friends!
Which leads me to my Be Thankful for today….
Chloe is thankful for ya’ll too!
