I friend stopped me in the parking lot yesterday and pulled a tiny stone heart from her pocket. She said, “I feel like this is for you.”
She laid it in my hand and as I felt the letters.

And with the Get Fit Challenge ending this week for us, I can’t help but feel that this little stone heart is a gift from a very watchful God.
If there is one thing I needed to know today, it is that I am able.
Since January, I have learned….
I am able to eat healthy
I am able to exercise and not hate it
I am able to treat food like food, not like a friend
I am able to live day to day
I am able to be the best me.
And I want to tell you this: YOU ARE ABLE.
It’s just true.
One day at a time, one meal at a time, one run at a time.
You are able.
I can’t believe the challenge is over. I can’t believe how different I feel. I can’t believe that starting tomorrow, no one will be watching my every nutritional intake or counting my exercise hours.
Regardless, I am going to live this healthy lifestyle. I like it. And even on the days when it gets impossibly hard, or when the gym is THE.LAST. place I want to go, or when I hate everything about being healthy, I will keep going.
Because I am able.
