Affinany or an Epiphany?


These past couple of days i have to say i did not do the best. I did not work out for the past 2 days and that is the longest time i have not worked out for in a row... It is very hard for me not to be down on myself. BUT i had an affinany.... or in real language i had an EPIPHANY!!!!

I have been so unhappy with myself when i work out and then when i dont... then i do and then i dont..... But then it messes up the rest of the day or the week. I have been concentrating on myself for the past 4 years for wrestling that it is hard for me to be like... HEY WHO CARES... if people love you they will any part of you!!!! I'm not saying im going to start going out of shape but i know the only way im going to be in top shape like i was in wrestling is working out 4 hours a day and eating just the minimum to get by with like i did for wrestling. AND THAT IS NOT THE LIFE I WANT!!!!!
I had a blast this weekend with my friends at A&M, witch i hope to be roomies with. Ya we did not eat the best but i had fun and we did not complain about how we looked or talked about working out all the time. we wore what we wanted to and i could be myself without looking at myself asking if i looked ok. they loved me for who i was.

SOOOOOOOOO.......I have conclude that any time we work out or eat right that we are doing it for our selves and for no one else! AND when we eat bad it is not a step back but an enjoyment of life little pleasures that God has given us.

When i work out it is for me tying to better myself. When i dont it is a time for relaxing and enjoying time with family and letting my body rest from being in a crazy teen life. When i eat right it helps my body feel better and i dont have as much GAS problems and i feel better, but when i eat bad it is an oases for my taste buds to enjoy little get away!!!

NOT SAYING that im going to stop working out and im going to start eating bad BUT i hope this little EPIPHANY will help me be less mad at myself or that i hope i wont get so down or be as hard on myself when i have a little fun or have some needed r&r from working out.

I am so proud of my sisters who i know have slipped up sometimes and so have i, but they have been willing to try new things and have been working really hard together!!! LOVE YALL!!!


I dont know if yall understood this at all. it maybe in Emmalee words but i hope i tried to explaine it all. I just feel a huge weight lifted off my shoulders... any questions please message me!!!

~With love~

That's a great thought Emm! Thanks for sharing it! My husband has told me many times that he loves me for me and I could weigh 400 lbs and he would still love me (although he would prefer I didn't :) A good man will love you no matter what!

You are perfect the way that you are, you don't need to change a thing! We can have fun, hang out, eat, workout and/or relax. No matter what you are doing, it doesn't matter what others think you look like, be excited about who you are and what are have accomplished! I love you just the way you are and if others don't, then shame on them! You are amazing!! I love you and I am so glad you had a good time at A&M!
