I think I actually appreciate running more when it’s not xc season because I’m running not because I have to but because I simply love it.
When I do push-ups I don’t push myself up, I push the world down
So I had a sort of mini-epiphany today. I realised that the whole time I’ve had this blog (almost two years), and even before that, I’ve never actually made my focus on being happy. I’ve always been focusing on weight loss, or on clean eating, or on cross country, or on maintaining an impeccable diet and exercise routine. I’ve never actually stopped and thought - hey, why don’t I focus on the things that’ll make me happy?
This whole time I got so caught on up on health and fitness and whatever (not saying that they’re not important, but…) that I never actually paused to think how I felt about this lifestyle. I became too obsessed with it.
