The last three days of this dietbet have made a huge impact on my mood. This term of school has been especially difficult for me: the weather in the PNW can get you down, most of my friends have finished school and moved away, and all of my loved ones live elsewhere. But during a run on Monday afternoon I found myself smiling! Tuesday I had energy all day through classes! And I found out I have completed my Associate's degree. Such a relief!

It's kind of amazing that when you choose to treat your body well and treat your mind well, life kind of returns the favor. This is an amazing little community here on dietbet, and I'm glad I made the decision to accept the challenge :)
