I miss feeling that I have a dancer’s body.
It is not so much about being fat or not. Heck, I still fit into a size zero even after a big meal. It is about feeling light, energetic, long and toned. It is about shining positive rays on the world and embracing both ups and downs with a genuine grin.
It is about not being wiped out and foggy-headed immediately upon waking up from decent sleep.
It has been more than a year since I stopped being a vegan and focused on nourishing my body and healing my mind. I even quit soda (yep, actually possible) and coffee (yes, believe it).
But I still feel like I am lugging a ton of bricks on my back every single day. Not to mention inexplicably losing muscle tone.
At least my body no longer feels too cold for comfort. Still underweight but I think I am getting there.
This month, I will be signing up in a gym (or maybe yoga class) to add variety to the workouts I do at home (which I already toned down in the name of health). Let us see what happens.
Everything in God’s time.
