Some People Don't Get It

April 28, 2014

I'm pretty damn lucky because everyone close to me understands that I'm on this journey to get healthy, fit, & look better. Most all of my friends/neighbors are all runners and we go running together a lot. It makes it so much easier and helps me stay on track.
Not everyone is so lucky. A lot of friends and family won't understand what journey you're on. They don't get why you feel the need to work out and run every single day. They might think you're a bad mom for doing something without your kids and "getting away" for an hour a day.
Here's the thing, they're not on this journey... YOU ARE. 
 You're the one who gets up every single day to look in the mirror and see yourself naked, picking out those things you hate about your body. They're not with you when you hit the wall during your run yet keep pushing yourself further. And they're definitely not there when you step on the scale and notice you've lost a few pounds or are able to fit into your skinny jeans again!
So anytime anyone questions this journey you're on, just remember, you're not doing this for them, you're doing it for yourself. They might not get it, but they don't need to, only you do.
