i don't work out for hours a day. i do work out often, but when people post about their workouts, i just want to slap them because i'm jealous or i think i'm not doing enough, so i am not going to mention how much i work out or how many calories i burn. i don't like reading about it from other people, so i don't want to talk about it. i like my desserts and i like my snacks but i also like my healthy food. i don't eat a ton of junk food, a very minimal amount i'd say, and i eat a lot of protein and a lot of fruit.
i can look in the mirror and pick at a million things with my body that i don't like. some days, i don't even look in the mirror because i know that i won't be able to handle what i see because i am too hard on myself. but i deserve more than that. and so do you.
each of us deserves to look in the mirror and look at ourselves with love. to appreciate our bodies for what they do, instead of what they don't do. most of us can walk, we can see, we can paint our nails and style our hair. what good does being cruel to yourself do? what does it accomplish?
NOTHING. absolutely nothing. it only makes us feel worse. i want to look at myself with love. losing weight isn't the issue. i will always find something wrong with my body, something that i don't like. the issue is improving my self image. that is why emelia and i started this linkup. to do it with you. with the hopes of you improving your self image as well.
i am beautiful. inside and out. even if i don't have tight abs or beyonce thighs. i hope that next time you look in the mirror, you will tell yourself that you love yourself, that you are thankful for the body that you have, and then try picking one thing about your body that you like. that's my challenge to you.
have a fabulous day dears! love yourself!
