Day 637- Comfortable in My Skin (pic)

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, August 29, 2013

I just feel like pictures tell my story so well. In case you forget where I started this journey, just check out my true before pics in my 1 year blog...

I was so unhappy in those pics, and disgusted with how I looked in a sports bra.

Well, last night, after my workout, I looked in the mirror and just smiled. If you've been following my recent blogs, I might seem bi-polar with the way I have ups and downs regarding body issues.

But when I looked in the mirror, I remembered that girl from a few years ago and just felt so thankful for this site and everything it has given me.



I'm just so often happy with my life these days, and it's because I took my health and well being into my own hands.

I think there is a vicious cycle that people are unhappy, so they eat poorly, but eating poorly ends up making them unhealthy and therefore unhappy.

I can't tell you how good I feel after an amazing healthy breakfast, a whole day of really good nutritional choices, or a nice walk.

So if you're having a bad day, as crazy as it sounds, don't binge on that ice cream or fast food.

Slice up some watermelon, or go for a walk. Make a positive choice to lead to other positive choices.

Hope you have a good day today Sparkfriends!

    Thank you! Just the reminder I needed today. I feel bad about allowing myself fast food (a lot of) yesterday especially since I wasn't hungry for it. So today I keep teetering between throwing in the towel and eating pints of ice cream or mental-self-flagellation. :( Either way, your option sounds better and I have some yummy strawberries chilling in the fridge. Some whole wheat bread and eggs will make a fantastic b-fast!
