Thankful Thursday round 7! Still loads to be thankful for each and every day. Thank you so much Jessie for hosting!!
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!
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.
