Healthy For Life – Week 49

This week was uneventful it seems. I gained a tiny bit of weight but I am not going to worry about it because it’s too insignificant to matter. To be honest, I am not eating well. Having one cup of latte every day and eating way more chocolate than someone should. And peanuts. And then not much else. Overall, a very unbalanced, terrible diet. I keep wanting to change it but feeling like I lack the strength, energy, or time. Which is, of course, total crap. Alas, here we are.

The exercise is going ok. I am running 2.2 miles every day. It’s hard, I am tired and feel like I can’t do it every day. But still I get up and actually do it every single day. I will admit that I still don’t look forward to it and I am still bummed I have to do and I am frustrated at having to wake up at 5:30am to do it. And it’s still hard. And tiring and definitely not the “rush” people claim it to be. Despite all that, I still keep going. Because I can tell it works. And I am not stopping it. Not ever.

The dress above is my most recent purchase. I haven’t bought anything in months so I was ok spending a little more than usual on it. And I was so so grateful to see how truly wonderful it felt to wear it.

and here’s this week’s card:


Healthy for Life is a weekly project for 2011. You can read more about it here.

    The dress is adorable…where did you get it?? I wish you’d be brave enough to show a photo of yourself in it. You might have gained .04 on the scale, but you ran 15 miles farther than I dreamed of doing. That alone is quite an accomplishment! Pat yourself on the back for all the things you DID do’, and what you continue to do, instead of beating yourself up about what you don’t. You are talented and have amazing boys (and I bet your husband’s great too, huh?). Go for it!! T

      thank you!! I got it from Anthropologie. I swear it wasn’t cause I wasn’t brave. I actually like the way I look in it. I just am too lazy to setup the camera to do a self timer. So it was laziness. I promise I will get a shot next time I put it on and post it so you can see that I am brave enough :) thank you for your kind and encouraging words :) :)
