So I got an iPhone. An iPhone 5 to be exact, and she’s a beaut. Actually, I think she’s probably male, but I love her like a car or a ship, so she it is.
I’ve had the phone for a week now and I still can’t believe that 1) she’s mine and 2) she can actually do all the shit she can do. Like, I grab my phone and listen to music, take decent-quality pictures, browse the Internet… and every so often it will strike me that I am doing these things with a PHONE. Last night: “I can’t believe this is a phone and that it’s mine.” Obviously she’s my first smartphone. Barring any unfortunate accidents, I’ll have her for quite a bit longer. A matter of several years, I hope.
I used to hate Instagram. Look how quickly I’ve become a convert. You can find me at rachmleg. I need to follow more people so hit me uppp. 😉 Shameless food-poster and filter-user right here.
My friend texted me the other day asking whether I would like to watch him “struggle through a morning run.” It sounds cheesy, but I was honored that he asked me to accompany him. Running is a journey as is coming to love it, and I’m so happy I got to be there for what will hopefully become the beginning of his. He led the way and we ran almost two miles before he decided it was time to stop.
I was and still am very proud of him. I’m proud of anyone who decides to run. It makes me so happy to see people running and doing good things for their health. I also get proud of my running friends’ accomplishments. No lie, I will brag about them. I distinctly remember telling my mom about a friend’s new 5K PR just because I was so happy for him since I knew he had been working hard at it all year.
I’ve been taking better care of myself lately, too. This past summer I was eating healthy and running a lot, but once school started I fell back into some old eating habits and gained about five pounds. Doesn’t sound like a lot, I know, but I could feel it in my running and see it ’round my middle. Anyway, since moving out of the dorms for good I have been MUCH better about how I eat and I haven’t even WANTED to eat anything unhealthy. Cookies don’t even tempt me anymore. 😉
I feel so much better, healthier, and stronger (I’ve been doing more weight training, too). The extra weight has already come off again (I was not overweight by any means, but you know what I mean…) which has dramatically improved how I see myself.
Being healthy is seriously worth it on so many levels. You should try it. I’m here for support! And I post a lot in the #healthyeating tag on Instagram. 😉
I’m not kidding about the support, either. If you want or need it, I’ve got your back. Twitter, email, whatever. :love:
