I Hate Goodbyes

Goodbye, Killeen.
Goodbye, Fort Hood.
Goodbye, Texas.

:(

Why must all good things come to an end? For the last two weeks, my heart has been happy. My soul has been smiling. I have some of the best friends a girl could ask for. I've grown closer to them than I am with my own blood.

There's something kind of magical about our group of friends. Something that brought us all together. A bond that even thousands of miles can't break. I have a really hard time opening up and letting people in, my entire life I've had this issue. Our friendship didn't happen overnight, but over days, weeks, months, years, these girls have become my sisters. I am so grateful for them. I would take a bullet for any of them.

It's made me realize though that I'm not really living right now in Atlanta. I'm just getting by, every day. I'm not happy. When I get home, some serious changes are about to go down. I'm not about to slip back into a depressed funk.

I'll leave you with some photos we took yesterday before our final workout together.



Tomorrow I'm running the Hot Chocolate 15k, if I can make it to the expo tonight to pick up my bib!

Goodbye, Texas. It's been real.

I'll see you all back in Atlanta.

    1. If you have excess body fat now and larger breasts because of it, yes, with ANY fitness program and clean eating you'll lose body fat. There is no such thing as "spot" toning, fat comes off ALL areas, breasts included.

    2. Court is dead on.

      My personal experience has taught me that investing in a great sports bra helps you minimize the loss" to your girls. Without good support you are increasing bounce which can take an additional toll.

  4. I feel for ya. 5 years ago I moved away from all of my family and friends from Virginia all the way to Colorado. It was a big adjustment. I can understand how you feel. There are some days that I'm so sad in my heart because I can't see my family whenever I want but on the other hand, the move has made me a stronger person and more independent. It has also helped me to see what is really important in life and to not take people or my time with others for granted.
    I'm glad you had a good trip. Safe travels and chin up :)

  8. I've been in Atlanta for just over a year now, and I can tell you that it takes time. You're doing everything you can, Courtney, and being awesome about putting yourself out there. It's scary and it's hard. Don't give up. You'll find your niche soon, I promise. In the meantime if you want some fun ideas, email me. I'm glad to share some of the fun things that helped me find my way here. fiftyshadesofpeach at gmail. ps - what did you think of all the damn hills in the Hot Chocolate yesterday??? #yowza
