But I am really struggling to keep this streak going. The past couple of weeks have been hard...I need to figure out whats bugging me. But for now, here are some funnies and some "not so funnies". Enjoy!
I like that one because its so true. People get way too hung up on sizes....they are so determined to fit into a size 4 or 8 or whatever, that they don't even pay attention to how the clothes actually FIT. They are just too worried about the number on the tag.
Wear what fits, regardless of what the tag says. You'll look a lot better in something that fits correctly as opposed to stuffing yourself into something thats too tight.
Ok, this one is sad...sometimes I really do feel this way. I work every day on my self esteem, but some days are better than others. Fortunately, I am having less and less days where I feel like this;
I remind myself all the time that I shouldn't put myself down. We should all build ourselves UP! The world will see you as you see yourself;
I've been having some "off days" but I'm hanging in there and not giving up. My goal for the month is to be my own Valentine, and I am still doing my best to love myself and to treat my body with respect!
I really enjoy stopping by for a few minutes and peeking at your blogs. They inspire me as do all the women who comment. Such a pleasure to see real women supporting each other! Young or old...we all need to do that and forget about the comparison thing. Go pixie! BTW ...still laughing about the clowns and knives post. Too funny!
It's hard sometimes. I have found that looking in the mirror every day, at least once a day, but more if possible, tell yourself you love yourself. God made you and he loves you too. That has helped me as well. We all have bad days, I hope that you stick to it and continue to press on!! God bless you! 1385 days ago
ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL Blog!! You are such a motivatior. I don't know what your streak is about or in, but 53 days of anything is stinking amazing!! I only dream of doing something for 53 days in a row! See...you motivate me! I know when something is eating at me and I can't put my finger on it...which happens sometimes because I struggle with depression...I usually get a little quiet and take a minute or two to ask God to show me. Sometimes it comes to me right away and sometimes it takes reading the Bible, or just time for it to come to me, but it usually does, or it fixes itself, in which case it doesn't matter anyway. Girl, you are terrific!! Keep up whatever you are doing. I'm watching you :) 1385 days ago
It is so hard to be kind to ourselves when we know that we are not performing at our personal best. Please know you are doing great. A little perspective for you - I dare to DREAM of having a streak last even 14 days!!! So 53 of anything is positively UNHEARD of in my world. You can be so proud of that! 1385 days ago
Hello! I really liked this blog. Thanks for the smiles! Some days you need to just get your stubborn on and push through. I know that you know this. Maybe you can make a more specific goal for your streak. Instead of feeling like you could fail ask yourself if you can just do your streak for today and then tomorrow ask yourself if you can do it today. I tell myself that if there are 24 hours in a whole day then surely I can exercise for 10 minutes. Or 30 or whatever. And then reward yourself with something. I like a warm drink and a book. Or I don't let myself watch that show I pvr'd unless I am exercising or have finished my exercise and I'm always glad that I do it. I never have regretted the time I've spent exercising and you won't too! I celebrate your strength and success so far and cheer you on for the success in the future and the success of now! 1385 days ago
Fabulous blog, great pictures. I'm so with you on sometimes feeling like that one image of the woman with hairy legs and all ("how I feel around other women"), and I totally laughed at basically all the bird pictures. :) Ugh, and I can't stand muffin tops. 99% of them are totally preventable, if people would just buy properly-sized jeans that don't ride so low on the hips! Low-rise jeans can make the slenderest women look fat. Sigh.
Anyways, thanks for sharing all that! 1386 days ago
