I want to tell you a little something about this shirt... It’s a really special shirt. It holds a lot of magic in that fabric.
And I threw it straight in the trash this morning!
When I first started trying to lose weight I went to the gym in sweat pants and old t-shirts. Once I even cut a pair of sweats into shorts 🙈 (Hunter was mortified for me 😂). I went to the gym between trips (I was traveling for work then) for close to two years. In every visit I walked on the treadmill while watching a tv show and then left.
When I made the decision that things needed to change and jumped all in to these at-home workout DVDs I bought myself one pair of workout capris and this shirt. When I put it on for that first workout I remember feeling official. Like it was all real now and this was going to be the time. The time that I stuck with it and made some changes.
I rarely wear this shirt anymore because my workout clothing collection is ridiculously large 🙈 but I hang on to it because it signifies where I started.
Today though, I threw it in the trash! Today I hit day 78 of an 80 day program that truly changed me. I don’t need this shirt’s magic anymore, I have my own!
This shirt signified the hope of real change, and that hope became a reality somewhere along the way. I can do hard things. I am worth doing the hard things for. I don’t need magic anymore, I have consistency and commitment.
Plus, ya know, the shirt was 3+ years old. 😂😜
