Reality Check...

I have to admit...I am having one of those weeks where it can't be over fast enough, or you want it to start all over again. I have been so exhausted lately, and really...well, I guess, hard on myself. I have been having some of those dreaded "fat days" lately. And I know that I said many posts back, that I would try to rule those out, but who am I kidding; I am a female and fat days occur! I have been working out as normal (well actually spinning more) so maybe I am building up some muscle...? I am going to post this link again.

 Why do we allow other people's opinions dictate how we should feel about our bodies / ourselves. It is an amazing world that we live in, both positive and negative!
TGIF! Today, out of the entire week, was a shift day for me. By that I mean, today I actually felt really great! I had a great run, got a few errands done, and then have been hanging out with the kids. I have been feeling positive and up on myself...life is good. So what changed!? It's amazing how your entire demeanor can change when your self confidence is lacking; Yet, when you have it, you feel unstoppable.
Your perception of yourself has such a huge impact on how others perceive you. In a world of "first impressions," don't you hope you leave a positive lasting one.

Why do I allow a number on a scale or the fit of my clothes to determine my mood? I am a woman, a healthy woman, a wanna-be athlete, a wife, a mom of two little ones, a person... I have so much to be thankful for and so much to be proud of. Sometimes, all I need is a little reality check with myself to realize that self confidence is what is really sexy...not any number.

We have to cut ourselves a little slack...we seem to be our own worst critics.
Sometimes, we just want that cookie...and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that!


we can learn a lot from kids!

I love when I feel this way... I truly feel, unstoppable.
