I came across a line in a poem today that stopped me in my tracks:
So, tell me, what are your plans for your life? Your only life–your precious life?
My plans are to be fit and happy. And with that, it’s time to stop the downward spiral I’ve been stuck in for about a year–ever since the Fittest Loser contest ended this month in 2011. The finale for the new contestants took place this week, and I saw them looking so happy and so proud, and I remembered exactly how that felt.
And now it’s time to get it back. I have one wild and precious life, and I am going to cherish it.
