Decisions.

I’ve been thinking a lot about this and I think where I want to go in life is probably the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make. There’s so many different things I want to do with my life. There’s so much more I want to learn and experience. It’s hard for me to choose one path. And what if the path I chose wasn’t the path for me? What if I work so hard to get where I wanted to go and then I get layed off. That happened to both of my parents. I watched them move from job to job and I think that’s what is scaring my shitless. Which is why I’m trying to work so hard right now. I’m trying to set myself up so that what happened to my parents won’t happen to me. I’m studying exercise science, which is such a broad major. So I want to be able to be certified in many different things so that if one path doesn’t work out, I can easily slide into another one. I just have to figure out what paths I want to take. I hate being a grown up. Where ma Cheerios at?

This is now my motto for every aspect of my life. I thought about it today while I was lifting. If there is a way to make the work that you’re doing harder, then do it. Because later on, you WILL thank yourself. Like later on, in February when I am at my championship swim meet and I’m finishing up my 200 back but I’m so tired, I’m going to thank myself for putting in all of this hard work that is going to help me finish. 
Or when I got my squat max up 50lbs, I’m going to thank myself for pushing on those last couple reps in the past. 
Or when I put all of this hard work into my new healthy lifestyle, and in a few months when I’m looking fab, I’m going to thank myself. 
I’m putting all of this hard work into school and my job as well. Because later on, when I land an awesome money making job, I’m also going to thank myself for putting in this hard work. See what I mean? All aspects of life.😊

Whyyyy

Why do you all have to post pictures of doughnuts on here? You’re all killin me! I come on here to get motivation to eat healthy stuff and then I go scrolling through pics of doughnuts and such and it just makes my cravings harder to ignore! :( hahaha
And now when I pass dunkin, I’m going to be a hot mess because I want a freakin doughnut more than life itself…..yay for strict diets.

Anyways, aside from the doughnut pics, thanks for helping me continue with my very rough and strict diet. You all are the bomb.

It’s true. I tried to impress this guy I liked last summer by doing all these flips and shit at one of those trampoline places. I mean yeah I got his attention, but I left the place with a nice broken ankle a few hundred dollar hospital bill. We talked for a few weeks after. Then we drifted. Then a month later I see him in a relationship on Facebook. Let me tell you, it’s not worth it! It wasn’t worth the months of rehab I had to go through or the months of watching on the side while my teammates swam every practice. I hated every second of it. So find someone who likes you for you so you’re not hurting yourself trying to get their attention. If they like me, then they will like the fact that I am a klutz and I can only go as far as jumping up and down on like a 2 year old on a trampoline. 
But the good thing I got out of it was a lesson that was definitely learned and an awesome story to tell my kids. So there’s that.
