I’ve done a lot in the past year, and I am truly blessed with the places I’ve been and the people I have met. Although I am happy in my state of life, I feel as if I were healthier I would be much happier.
Today marks a change. A change in myself. I recently got back from my J-term trip in the Bahamas, and that was sure an experience. The people on the trip helped me realize that I am a great human being and that I can be myself around people right away and they will still love me for who I am.
With my job I am constantly traveling and have enjoyed seeing the world. It’s been a life goal of mine, and it continues to grow. I will be going to Italy in April and I finally get to see my best friend. I hope when I go see her which is two months away, I am a size or two smaller than what I am now.
My family has recently moved, and it was kind of a touchy subject but it truly happens for a reason and has opened my eyes. Truly be thankful for the little things you have in your life.
One of my best friends is getting married in June, and I know that it is her day. Because it is her day, I need to look the best I can and I am going to do this for her.
In class I’ve learned that you can’t control 10% of what happens to you, but the other 90% you can. How are you going to react to your next situation? Mine, getting fit!
What is normal? Is it the way you look according to society? The way you act? I don’t know if I know anyone who is normal. I most definitely am not. Sure I look like it and most of the time I act like it. But what you truly don’t know is that I am normal according to society because of one reason. Friends and family. If it wasn’t for them, I would still be sitting at rock bottom, if not farther down.
All I know is I may not be normal, but I am 100% positive I am blessed. God has helped me over come the extreme ups and downs I have faced, and friends and family have helped me guide through them. I can’t be more blessed, well maybe if I was a smaller size according to society. Let’s be honest though, I am who I am.
Teen Moms Take It Off!
After watching all the Teen Mom episodes over the years I can’t help but notice the transformation of these girls! Today is the premier of MTV’S Teen Mom The final season so I thought I’d do a little post on how they transformed themselves!
I watch teen mom and seeing that they had kids and lost weight makes me realize I can do it. I haven’t had a kid so that’s one less thing I have to worry about.
My name is Allison. I’ve recently decided that who I am is great, but the way I look is not. I’ve always seen myself as okay looking but I have truly realized that I am not. I am not obese but I am not the size I want to be. My blog is going to be about how my life is changing for the better.
Yesterday June 8th, 2012 I began my diet and exercise plan. I am trying my hardest to get rid of my sweet tooth and little by little I am getting it done. I don’t want to be a size zero but I want to be able to look at myself and feel as if I am a 10. Being that I am in California for the summer I think is helping me realize that I don’t have the peer pressure that I had at home and have extra time to make myself look good.
While talking to my best friend, she gave me a blog to read and it was the Undressed Skeleton. She has helped motivate me. I don’t know how I am going to make meals like that but realizing she has done what I want to do will help me. I also read Teen Mom Kail Lowry’s blog. Seeing her just lose 10 pounds and how great she looks made me realize that something so small can make you feel ten times better about yourself.
Not only is cutting bad food out of my life an essential but so are the people. People that bring me done aren’t who I want to surround myself with. I am a good person, and if you don’t believe that then you don’t know me very well. I have things in my past that have helped me shape who I am and make me a stronger girl than I would be now.
Music is a way for me to escape. It always has been from the way my childhood was to now when school and real life stress me out. My family means the world to me and knowing that they aren’t perfect but are there for me through everything makes going through life a whole lot better. But when they don’t understand me that is why I have some of the best friends in the world. If I can’t tell something to my family, my friends totally get me. Whether they are miles away or a block away they get me and give me the advice I need. Either of these are my escape and it’s just what I need to better myself.
So this is a post to show that I am changing who I am but only to make myself feel better about who I am and who I want to be.
I’ve come to the realization after reading a few other blog posts that it is time for me to get in the best shape that I’ve ever been in. I know I am not fat, but I know I don’t like the way I look. For me to be comfortable in my own skin I have to be able to push myself through anything. I have to realize that pushing myself will only get me to be were I wanna be. If I have the love and support of my family and friends. I can get there too. It’s not about being a size zero and walking down a run way. It is about being in shape and looking at myself and saying, “Damn I look fucking good.”
This is why I love him :)
