I haven't done a #meinreallife post for a long time and I have been thinking about this one for awhile, so here it goes. These are the hardest kind for me to post!
So this was part of my workout this morning. I had no intention of posting it. I was recording it to check and improve my form, since I don't have a mirror in my room, but decided to post it after watching it, along with some thoughts I had.
First.....I am not the strongest person, but I DO work hard at being healthy everyday.
I am not the most "fit", but I DO take care of my body and enjoy exercising.
I am not the most disciplined when it comes to eating sweets, (darn you swedish fish!), but I AM conscious about the food that goes into my body and try to make good choices...most of the time.😉 I am not a size small, but I AM learning to do my best and love my body just the way it is. (And learning this does take time! 😂) I am not able to do 10 pull-ups (or even 3. 😂), but I CAN play tag with my kids and take them on bike rides and carry them up the hill when we are hiking.
I am tired of thinking of all the things I am "not," and am trying to focus more on what I AM and what I CAN do! Not only in health and with body image, but every aspect of my life. When we have these negative thoughts....("I am not a good mom", "I am not an organized person", "I am not attractive enough") then we need to stop immediately and replace it with a positive thought about something that we ARE, or something we CAN do! I am not perfect and I fall short in many ways, but I am learning that when I give it my best....that is all that is asked of me. And it is enough. I AM ENOUGH. And so are you.
