Five years ago, I wasn’t a runner. I wasn’t a healthy eater. I wasn’t a happy person.
Five years ago, I was overweight.
Five years ago, I ate frozen pizza, Velveeta shells and cheese, Hungry Jack pancakes, and absolutely no vegetables.
Five years ago, I was not a good cook. I wouldn’t even have called myself a cook.
Five years ago, I was addicted to Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla ice cream with crushed up Reese’s Cups. Seriously addicted.
Five years ago, I couldn’t imagine myself ever getting married.
Five years ago, I met my honey:
To say my life changed five years ago is an understatement. It changed all right, but so did I.
Today, I am a runner. I am a super healthy eater. I am happier than ever!
Today, I am 30lbs lighter.
Today, I eat homemade gluten-free pizza crust with veggie toppings, homemade mac and cheese with broccoli, gluten-free pancakes with walnuts and flax seeds, and lots of salads!
Today, I confidently say I am a good cook (and my honey agrees :))
Today, I make my own ice cream at home, sweetened with maple syrup. Sans Reese’s Cups.
Today, I couldn’t imagine ever living without my honey!
Maybe one day I’ll share the story of how we met, but for now, I’m just going to thank God for bringing my honey into my life. I’m so glad I’m not the same person I was five years ago.
