I have not been feeling so well today, but I'm not so sick that I had to be in bed. Therefore, I made good use of my time and cleaned. My bathroom needed a really good cleaning. I have stuffed things in drawers and cabinets and as a cosmotologist, I have color and wax and hair in crevices that just needed to be cleaned up.

I hated walking in there. I almost will never use a public restroom, but I'd be willing to bet that my bathroom was probably worse. I had every intention of cleaning it every single day, but I just couldn't find the energy. Well, today I had that energy even though I was feeling somewhat under the weather. Now, I can't stop looking at it. So clean!

It doesn't stop there. I went for a 45-minute walk with hubby, and we even did a little jogging. Not ideal for someone who has a knee injury, but I only did what my body would let me do. I did not push it. It was great. I got in a lot of activity today. And all while feeling kinda crappy.

I told myself that I am going to be honest and love myself enough to take care of me this time around. I am not going to focus so much on weight to lose, but energy and self-esteem to gain. Because this journey (this time) is not about what I lose, I will be able to appreciate what I gain so much more.

I never knew I could feel this great about myself. I have always had low self-esteem, but life is too short and gets shorter every year, so I'm wasting no more time feeling bad about myself. I came here to learn to love myself, and I believe that in a few short weeks, I have learned that anything is possible with some hard work.

    Really enjoyed your blog ~ so positive. :) Great job on getting your bathroom cleaned. I know it really makes me feel good when I'm not feeling well but can still accomplish something. Also, going for the walk was good for your health, emotional and physical. Be proud of what you have done today and I hope you are feeling better soon. emoticon

    I often let my bathroom get pretty grungy between cleanings too. It really doesn't take that long to get it clean so I don't know what my issue is. I guess I just don't like cleaning the bathroom!
