But she never looked back with regret. There were so many ways for things to get better.

You don’t deserve words. You deserve actions.

it’s day 4

• I was warned by runes to not repeat similar mistakes and by the end of this journey, I’d gain a lover/friend
• It is hard to balance everything but I’m really trying to make it work. I hate feeling hungry so I’m always trying to eat.
• I was forced to use the treadmill when all the men in the gym were taking up the elliptical (I know). I rediscovered how much time flies when you’re running. I alternate between the two to switch it up and surprise my body but running is so much easier.
• I can’t believe it made it to day 4 without killing anyone or setting anything ablaze
• looking forward to a rest day

Sometimes you have to do things you don’t want to do to get something better.
Miranda Kenneally, Catching Jordan (via simply-quotes)
I have many things I want out of life, but I’m practical. I know that I must wait to get what I want.
Jude Deveraux, Counterfeit Lady (via simply-quotes)
Is this just what you do? You start to get involved, get scared when the emotions are too much, and then dream up any excuse you can to run? Or to invite the other person to dump you?
Sherryl Woods, Moonlight Cove (via simply-quotes)


It is necessary, and even vital, to set standards for your life and the people you allow in it.
Mandy Hale, The Single Woman (via simply-quotes)

Food wise, today wasn’t my best but I didn’t cross my caloric intake requirements so I’m okay with it. I hate feeling hungry and I know there is no way I can function if I am.

All in all, it was a good day. I’m proud of myself and hope to do better tomorrow.

Really proud of the fact that three years of solid running has allowed me to qualify as intermediate on my running app. I thought I was still at beginner. Lmao, I definitely didn’t give myself enough credit… that or I just like to push myself

if you’re just starting out, the Running app in the iTunes Store at $1.99 is worth it. I love it.

Rather than concentrating on what you should have done, concentrate on what you can do now.
Rachel Van Dyken, Ruin (via simply-quotes)
I live my own life and nurse my own wounds. It’s not the best way to live. But it’s the way I am.
Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex (via simply-quotes)

Today was truly a success in all the areas of my life. I’m satisfied with the outcome. I’m so glad my plan to eat healthy and work out was implemented. I had to adjust for more coffee but I don’t care because coffee.

I want to say that I feel a lot better when I do these things for myself. I feel no sense of shame in how far I have to go, only grateful that I’m trying.

I’m truly satisfied.

Writing about happy emotions actually helps me. I feel happy and even more happy that I created that happiness. It’s starting to feel like a life meant for me.
