My advice:
  • Get proper shoes - running shoes if you’re a runner, lifting shoes if you are lifter, et cetera. Take care of your feet, and try to avoid cheap and bad quality shoes. Shoes are expensive - I know - but it IS worth it.
  • Get a good sports bra! Or a handful of them - I’ve got about 10 bras that I value because they keep stuff where stuff is  supposed to be kept while I run or lift :)) 
  • The rest of the clothes? No need to buy expensive brand stuff. Go with whatever’s available at your local stores. Make sure it fits and that you can move properly in it, but you really don’t need to spend $200 on a pair of Nike leggings when an off-brand will serve you just as fine. 
  • If you want to spoil yourself: Buy the big-name brand stuff. Get the Nike leggings! 

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Looking back, I can’t remember the truth. I blew everything out of proportion so I could feel the hurt and betrayal and write about it in vivid detail. It was my own method of torture. My own undoing; and I enjoyed every second of it.
