Body Love

I am a big giant ball of excitement right now! Energy is running through my veins, passion is beating through my heart and happiness is shining from my eyes. This year has been a whirl wind. A massive roller coaster that I absolutly can not keep up with! Every month, every week, every day, brings a new set of challenges and accomplishments. Time is flying. It's March already people. How did this happen. Last I remember I was planning for my birthday and getting ready for Christmas. These past few months have flown by and every day has been memorable. Happy memories, sad memories, joyful memories and tough memories, but never the less, memories that will stay with me forever. This has been my first year as a coeliac and my first year dealing with giving up food. Giving up food for me was like giving up a part of myself. Not easy to deal with, but I have gotten through. I have NEVER been on a diet in my life. Now my whole world revolves around this difficult diet. Every meal, every snack and every treat has to be thought about, planned and executed very carefully. I take it seriously because I need to get better. At the start of the year I started running and was loving it sick. Now looking back I realise that My running was my outlet. It crossed my mind once or twice but now I definitely know that it was my outlet. I replaced my eating of gluten and lactose with running. A nice trade in my eyes. Good on ya brain. I didn't do it on purpose. I wasn't consciously thinking, instead of eating this sandwich I'm going to go for a run. It just happened.

Now 3 months later, I have found a new love of exercise! Before this year I didn't get it! I expressed it once or twice in this blog! I didn't get 'gym goers' I didn't get how people live for and loved exercising! Now...I get it! I totally get it. I don't know why? I don't know how? But it's awesome and I love it. I am feeling so much happier and I am seeing results in my body!! My body is toning up by the week and I am getting so many compliments! Not only about my body but that I seem so much happier and brighter!

I love my gym! I love the people, I love the instructors, I love the classes, I love the feel. There is no pressure or competition! We are all there for the same become fit, healthy and happy! And that my beautiful friends is the awesome journey I am on!

I wasn't going to post this photo but I want to document it! It's part of my journey! It's who I am right now in march 2012! I want to look back and see the changes! I can already see changes and it's only been 3 weeks! I'm not perfect but this is me and I am proud of my body! We as women should be able to look in the mirror and be proud! We should love! I love my body right now! I know it's going to tone up more but I'm happy right now! So here I am! Proud and in love with my body!
