I generally cannot look in a mirror without criticizing myself and for me, it is a difficult habit to break. That being said I am not a big fan of working out while being surrounded by mirrors because I spend too much energy on criticizing myself in my head. I have been actively trying to stop this process and today I made a breakthrough! I did a workout class at Lifetime in a room with mirrored walls and I completed the class without thinking one negative thought about myself. I know it sounds silly but that is really a big deal for me and I feel like it is a great step toward self acceptance.
