This positivity really works! I am telling you!
I had a healthy day ~
I honored my body by NOT working out today because I am super sore from Monday's workout. I did go for a nice slow stroll tonight with my hubby ~ and stretched a bit.
Here is today's MAJOR CHALLENGE that I overcame - and I am sooo proud -- and I have to admit the biggest reason I was able to overcome it... was because I wanted to be able to spark about it!! :0)
We've had a few emotional days these last couple of days (yesterday especially)... today my husband called me on his way home to see if I needed anything from the store. You see... that is our unwritten "code" for "I'm about to pig out on xy or z ... do you want to join me?" I said no.... he said.... "just so you know, I'm getting ice cream for myself" ... another invitation... I hesitated briefly and thought... this is tough. I would love ice cream - especially since I have a "free pass" given that he is "cheating"... he didn't pressure me. I wanted to be able to spark about overcoming this challenge so I quickly said "nope. I'm good." ... and I did it! NO ICE CREAM! I didn't even have a spoonfull of his!
I have to admit... I feel a little awkward bragging about my accomplishments .... I am so used to putting myself down and beating myself up over stuff .. that this patting myself on the back feels strange --- but oh so much better than the ladder!
Here is another amazing thing about my body (and yours!).... The stomachís digestive acids are strong enough to dissolve zinc. Fortunately for us, the cells in the stomach lining renew so quickly that the acids donít have time to dissolve it.
I love my body and I am grateful for my health today!
Thanks for stopping by!
