Rest Day Randoms

IMG_8205.JPG
I feel like a change is coming in my life… I don’t know exactly what, but it feels like riding a roller coaster. You know that first hill, you’re steady going up, up, up and the anticipation is just killing you! You know you’re gonna go down any second, but you don’t know exactly when it will happen. That’s me right now. I just feel a momentum growing. I’m not a religious person, but I do feel like the universe (or God maybe, I don’t know) sends me signals. It’s not really been one thing or another, just a force pulling me. I am very drawn to the fitness life. I like how you have such control over your body and you get exactly what you work for. No faking, no smooth talking your way in or out of it. No corporate America bullshit. Basically, the complete opposite of what I’ve known my entire life. It fascinates me. It’s like a completely different world that I just discovered!
Since I began my fitness journey, I’ve noticed that some people in my life totally turned into haters! Friends, family, coworkers…. They just randomly come out with snide remarks and sideways glances. It’s funny how some people are perfectly fine with you coasting through life on autopilot, completely unhappy. But, the minute you try to better yourself, they’ve got shit to say. You know what, that’s perfectly fine. I’m not at a place in my life that I need everyone’s approval anymore. It does make me a little sad that people can be so petty, but there’s nothing I can do about that. I know there will always be haters, so all I can do is do my best to lift up those around me and have a positive attitude. This is the outlook I’m choosing to take on in this transitional phase that I feel coming. I don’t know exactly where it will take me, but I am looking forward to the ride.

I have really been focusing a lot of my energy lately on my Instagram and building a solid following. I love how social media brings people together! I decided to do a Transformation Tuesday pic today and looking back on my 2011 self made me realize exactly how much my life has changed in the last 3 years. That chick has disappeared and I’m 100% sure that is a positive thing. I don’t regret where I was at that time or the way things ended up, but it kind of bittersweet to look into those naive eyes. As I looked at my present day picture, I could see a confidence and calm that I’ve never had before. I don’t know if the universe is telling me this is the road I should take or not. Until things become more clear, I’ll just keep wandering down the path I’m on. I know I will get where I need to be.

  1. Hey there! I know this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established website such as yours require a massive amount
    work? I’m completely new to blogging but I do write in my journal everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring
    blog owners. Appreciate it!

    • I’m still pretty new to the whole thing. I think the biggest part that I’ve struggled with so far is building a following on social media. I work a full time job, so keeping up FB, Instagram and Twitter takes a lot. I have mainly focused on Instagram. And, I’ve gotten a good bit of traffic from there.
      If you write daily you shouldn’t have any problems. I struggle to find time to write. What is your blog called? I’d love to check it out! : )
