Mid-Week Stretch & Self-Love

Wednesday, May 3, 2017

I took this photo earlier today when I was stretching after completing 8 miles so far this week.  Let me tell you running, jogging...shoot merely moving is not easy with extra weight, and to top it off having your mind play tricks on you. It is no joke. But I put the spandex back on and laced up my Nikes. 

After this post, I know several of my friends and family will give me the thumbs up and maybe even some compliments on getting it done which is awesome.  The only thing is I know that no amount of compliments or thumbs ups will change how I perceive myself on the inside, but wouldn't it be awesome if it worked?! If only every compliment made us stronger and would chip away at our own self-hate. The only person that can change the way I perceive myself is me.  I am learning to live fully and love my current state because I am grateful for these strong legs that get me through my day.  

Today stop and do some mid-week stretches and show yourself some love.  Do not wait for the kudos, the compliments or refresh for the thumbs up.  Do whatever you need to do to make yourself feel great.
