My boyfriend has been bugging me to repierce my belly button. It closed up almost a year ago after reacting to a bad ring. I’ve wanted to do it so badly because it looked great when I had it done. The only thing that stopped me was my weight gain shortly after it closed up. Well, now that I’m back on track I’m making it part of my goal! When I make it halfway to my UGW I will repierce my belly button and I will probably be confident enough to post a picture of it :) This is just one more source of motivation to add to the list!

So I started my weight training back up, and started to eat healthier. I did cardio on machines every time and made sure to always think about fitness. I didn’t make the full commitment. I didn’t force myself into the scary places. You have to be fearless to truly experience new things. I’ve started running outside again. I’m making my body go where it doesn’t want to go, and after just a few days I feel incredible. I feel unstoppable. I can actually FEEL the changes that I will soon be able to see. If you don’t feel in your heart that what you’re doing, what you’re CHALLENGING yourself to do, is enough to cause visible changes, you’re doing it wrong. I don’t expect these changes over night, but I do expect them to happen. I no longer wonder if they will because I’ve learned what it takes. Struggle and challenges and all the stuff I’m afraid of. It’s about making a new goal each day to better improve the balance in my life. I have to constantly strive for more. Because saying “I’m okay with waiting for results” and then doing the same bland thing for a year won’t get you what you want. Walk the walk and reach for better.
