Caroleeena’s Journey to Health and Wellness

March 4, 2014 Caroleeena Gif Story

I was never the most athletic person

image

but I tried to psych myself up to play some sports, you know, to be healthy.

image

In high school, I briefly tried my hand at basketball

image

then at softball

image

then volleyball

image

It didn’t take long to figure out team sports were not my thing so I decided to try more solitary endeavors like gymnastics

and running

and though I persevered

image

well, you are what you eat

"I'm a cupcake! I'm a cupcake! I'm a cupcake!"

and I didn’t eat that well

image

I was a vegetarian who didn’t eat vegetables

image

so I attempted to change my ways

image

It didn’t go so well

image

I had some challenges

Finally I just gave up

image

My attitude was pretty bad

image

I’d raise my voice to the heavens and cry

image

In retrospect, I realize I had set unattainable expectations

image

and I was treating diet and exercise like punishment

image

so

It was

image

I told myself

image

I threw out all those stupid women’s magazines I’d been reading

image

and came to understand that even the women in them didn’t really look like that!

image

And those friends who could talk about nothing but dieting, exercise and clothes?

image

I decided to eat one healthy thing a day and I would eat as much of it as I wanted!

I began to choose food for color — purple, yellow, red, green, orange and blue

image

And for my exercise, I did the only thing that had never felt like exercise to me. I danced!

image

and I danced

image

and even though I’d had no formal training, I danced!

image

And then one day I saw Spiral dance with a hoop!

and I thought

image

image

I will teach myself!

And I loved it so much, I found excuses to do it where I had found excuses NOT to do things called exercise before!

and now
