It was worth every…

  • Donut left behind
  • Apple instead of bagel
  • Sweat
  • Blood
  • Tears
  • Blisters
  • Pricey new running shoes
  • Counting calories
  • Keeping journals
  • Looking like crap, because I can’t be bothered styling my hair [gym in the pm]
  • Not being able to sit because of muscle pain
  • Leaving my warm bed to run in -20
  • Running in thunderstorms and up big hills
  • Getting up early to pack for the gym
  • Wanting nothing more than to watch TV, but then going for a run
  • Missing out on drunken fun nights with friends
  • Not being included in ‘McDonalds Office Runs’
  • Ordering salads over fast food
  • Going to bed with no desert
  • Skipping the popcorn and M&Ms at movie theatres [damn, that’s so good]
  • The price tag of each race
  • Skipping horse riding for runs [sad times there]
  • Pushing through shaky arms/legs in the gym
  • Saying no to a free chocolate bar
  • Walking past the (delicious looking) sandwiches in the office
  • Ruining my styled hair for a workout
  • Forcing myself to eat eggs
  • All my IT Band Knee Issues
  • Giving my Valentines Day chocolates to my friends
  • Having an 80 cal fudgesicle [instead of an ice-cream cone]
  • Choosing a tea over a latte
  • Saying, ‘no,’ instead of ‘whatever’

It really was worth it and I’m only 2/3rds of the way there. 51 Down. 24 to Go.
