Fitness is such a tough journey.  It is absolutely frustrating and confusing for anyone on the quest to be fit and healthy.  In order to “find myself”, I had to break myself down and experiment.

I tried Pilates.  I tried to run. I tried vegan. I tried vegetarian. I tried episcatarian.  I tried liquid dieting. I tried six-times-a-day-eating.  I tried starving. I tried shakes. I tried juices.  I would go on a no-carb diet.  Then a no-red-meat diet. Then a water till the cows come home diet. GAHHHHHHH!  I tried a LOT!

Can you imagine what it’s like to be my friend? Can you picture me digging out my vegan hotdogs during the bbq potluck at the beach alongside the cow-enduced weiners? How about making an extra side dish that’s “approved” for my diet of the month?  Do you have a friend that listens to you when you’re crying your eyes out in frustration? Have you ever had a friend that didn’t judge you for only being vegetarian temporarily? Only to welcome you back with a big slab of prime rib?  What about a friend who tells you that she is proud of you and all that you’ve accomplished, with every sincerity from her heart?

I hope you’re as lucky to have a friend like mine.  If it wasn’t for Tina, I wouldn’t know what real friendship meant.  Aside from being my biggest cheerleader, she still makes fun of me for being obsessed about Crossfit.  She will still call me out when I’m ridiculous about food.  She has yet to tell me to shut the f### up about my PRs.  She doesn’t frown at me when I tell her I workout at 6AM on a Saturday.  She doesn’t roll her eyes at my Instagram paleo photos.  She is just that.  A great, and truly wonderful friend.  I could go on and on about her.  But there is almost no words to describe how much she means to me as a friend.

I hope you’re as luck to have a friend like mine! ❤
