My Dear SparkFriends,
This is a Youtube link to my women's chorus "Animaterra" singing the song "I Will Be Gentle With Myself". This quote is so important to me, it is in my SparkPeople sig. Please watch it and FEEL it.. and take care of yourselves. This is from our concert on May 20th - just a couple weeks ago! I am on the right side, second row, third from the right end, wearing bright blue.
"I will be Gentle with Myself.
I will love myself.
I am a child of the Universe,
Being born each moment."
And Sparkfriends, we are being BORN each moment.. We are rebirthing ourselves into new healthy bodies. We need to be gentle with ourselves and not overdo it.
The main thing I still need to work on is getting enough sleep. I got about 4.5 hrs last night and it wasn't enough. I'm wiped out. I do not quite know how I managed to dance for more than an hour tonight ANd do the Day 7 Boot Camp Strength Training Routine (core/abs)! But somehow, I did.
Also, don't be so hard on yourself if you mess up, but just start again the next day. You can do it. It is consistency which will win the day and gain us the healthy, fit bodies we desire.
