...these pictures...when I think back how I felt when I took each one...it's like they were taken yesterday. In 2007, I thought I had it all figured out...what my life was going to look like and who I was going to spend it with.
*
In 2014, I had experienced a great deal of loss...and in alot of ways it was the beginning of the end. I was so miserable, but kept telling myself I wasn't, because I was supposed to happy. I made alot life altering decisions that year, as my home became a place of unrest. There was alot of rapid change...that began with #weightloss , to becoming a #vegetarian and deciding to purse my Master's. I changed fields, changed jobs...most significantly was---that I had changed my mind. But when it became too much I resisted, and held on to a life that wasn't mine anymore, and so I went through it...kicking and screaming...
*
By end of 2016, my entire life was different and there were so many instances when I didn't think I was going to make it. But by the time I took that last photo in the summer of 2018, I was knee deep in a completely different life. I had never been closer to my friends and family, I had developed my own interests. I was becoming an athlete. I had a life. It was bittersweet, but at the same time probably the first time...in a long time, I could picture my future... because i finally wanted one.
*
The last great challenge is here and now, in 2019, to check those last few lingering boxes...leave the nightmares in the past and what I can't let go of...pack up in the attic of my mind and move on. Stay tuned...

Week 4-6: Focused on my diet. 🧐 I'm a #vegetarian and had been eating a carb 🍝 dense diet for a while (several years). As my body changed, my diet stopped supporting the amount of physical activity I've been doing, both at work and with training (especially for the last five months).
*
I decided to shift to a higher fat πŸ₯‘ & higher fiber🍏diet (because I was still getting really, really painful 😫 #sidestitch in my ribs every time I ran more than 4 miles). Having awful bloating, (which I never had) all while being constantly hungry. I was angry with my body for it. πŸ˜©πŸ˜…...but I have definitely seen some improvement.πŸ€“

So...what have I learned in 2018, right? What's the moral of the story? πŸ€” My goal for 2019 is to never let myself fall as low as I did this year, never again...in the meantime...

...Where am I?
I don't know, somewhere amongst the trees...it's where I need to be πŸ˜‰βœŒπŸ½#happynewyear #salud *

🎢"I'm falling...
In all the good times,
I find myself longing for change...
And, in the bad times, I fear myself...
*
I'm off the deep end, watch as I dive in...
I'll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface where they can't hurt us
We're far from the shallow now" 🎢 #spilledwords

So, this is for all the people who keep telling me that Black girls don't swim, that Brown girls don't Hike, that Fat girls can't run, that Short girls can't climb
*
I have to forgive myself...
Remind myself, that a brain can be an athlete...and that an awkward girl, can also be an ass-kicker. 😜
*
...because I'm no princess.
...I'm not your damsel in distress
...I don't need you to save me.
"I am the one who knocks."
