Yesterday I went to the beach. I felt happy and confident with my appearance. That really is a big deal. I’ve still got weight to lose but was happy to be photographed in my swimwear. It was a spectacular day.
I swam in the ocean for the first time in years. It was so cleansing. I just wouldn’t do that when I was bigger. I also ran some sprints in the water as well. Not sure that was a good idea with my heel injury but I’m so over it. Then lay on a towel IN THE SAND with my daughter while my husband took my son jetty jumping. It was a truly simple and perfect afternoon.
Yesterday I sold a bulk load of clothes that were too big for me. You know it’s really important to pay homage to the little things. The lady who picked them up was helping me stuff all the clothes in three big garbage bags. I realised she was puffing and I wasn’t. That was me just three months ago. Unfit and puffing at the smallest exertion. You know it’s okay to be whatever shape you want to be as long as you’re happy. This is about recognising positive changes in my health. Because you exercise everyday some changes aren’t apparent and I’m grateful for the chance to notice them.
I had the best breakfast yesterday. Gluten free, protein pancakes, coconut yoghurt, blueberries and a drizzle of maple syrup. Not a breakfast I’d have everyday but now and again it is divine.
