First of all, I am thankful for yesterday’s evening. Instead of absolving a hard and intense Crossfit workout in the cold and dark, I was invited to a little pre-christmas event with 3 ex-working colleagues of mine. I love these ladies and we had a wonderful cosy, warm, chatty, foodie and funny evening. I am thankful to have so many wonderful friends I can spend tome with!

Just what I needed. Food.

Hmmmmm…..

A big thankful goes to my body. I may not like all parts of my body. But when I think about what I’ve done to it, I must say it looks pretty fabulous. Sure, I work hard for it every day. But when I think about….

…that I did not feed it but starved for about 2 whole years…

…that I filled it with junk food and made it let it all out 5 minutes later and let it feeling sick, full and devastated over years….

….that I forced it to workout and exercise several times every day even though it was sore, exhausted and tired and just wanted to rest….

….that I stressed it with appetite suppressants, dangerous energy pills, diuretics and more each day…..

…then I must say that I am SO THANKFUL that it is still here, alive, working, looking good and carrying me through life. I am PHYSICALLY healthy. I feel vital and fit. I am not tired during daytime and I sleep like a baby every night. I may have some stomach issues sometimes but mostly when I don’t be careful on what I eat. I am hardly ever sick, I can’t even remember the last time I was home sick. I am capable of absolving intense workouts, hard challenges and stressful days because of my body. I can wear what I want cause my body is working to maintain my weight. I can laugh, breath, see, hear, smell, taste, speak and love because of my body. My body never judged me for what I did. It never gave up giving me signals what it needed no matter if I noticed them or not. It fought and recovered. My body deserves only the best.

  1. What a fabulous night with delicious food!! I’m glad you decided to pass up a workout to enjoy moments with friends. Workouts will be there whenever, but memories with good people won’t ❤

  2. Beautiful post Lucie! Looks like you had a wonderful night with friends too! Sometimes that is so much better and so much more necessary than a workout!

    Sometimes the “like” button is not enough: Just LOVE this post!So beautifully written.

  4. You’re so great Lucie! I am thankful for my body in the same way that you are. It took me 8 years to realize what I was doing to my body and I am ready to start treating it right! I know that if I love it, it will love me back. I’m glad you are feeling good about yourself now 🙂

    • Oh thank you for that sweet comment Devon!! You can be so proud of yourself and I am so glad you love your body today!! We’re in this together and I am glad you can relate!
