As I was browsing through the wallpapers for my phone I found one that says "Stronger". I went on and didn't look back. When I couldn't find one that I liked, I went back to stronger. For some reason it stands out to me...
I think I know why.
Lots of things have happened in the last year. I am a stronger person because of the things that have happened. Everyday the things that happen make me a better person.
For example, I am 9 days without soda. To be honest, I don't miss it. Iced tea, coffee and water seems to be enough. I admit that I saw a co-worker with a Diet Cherry Coke today and wanted to rip it out of her hands and chug it. I even tried to figure out if I had enough money to buy a pop. I decided to chew a piece of gum and that seemed to fix the craving.
My body is stronger as well. I was amazed at how much stronger I was today while doing my strength training. 4 months ago I never would have imagined myself here. I am lifting weights, running 1 mile in 1/2 mile increments and preparing for a 5k.
If you can make it to the 6 month mark, you have changed your lifestyle and can keep it up. I have made up my mind that this is a permanent change.
I am a stronger person for making these changes.
Overall, stronger is my new motto.
What's your motto for your new and better life?
