So, while I was in Nashville I received some negative comments regarding the way I pose for pictures. Things like “you don’t look like you are getting fit mama”; “5ks are not serious runs”; and “maybe you should change up your routine so your appearance will change”. These comments left me feeling sad and vulnerable.
How could a person be so cruel and mean?? Fitness and Health come in all shapes and sizes. Don’t believe me, just go to a race. Every body type from short to tall and skinny and healthy are present and giving all they got (for the most part 😉). As long as a person is actively trying to better themselves that is all that matters in my opinion. Not what some label says or the number on a scale. Love the body you are in and respect it with good food and plenty of exercise.
As far back as I can remember I’ve been dealing with these feelings. Something will happen or nothing will happen and these feelings come washing over me like an infectious sickness. I hate it, my inner battles are uglier than the ones I have with others and everyday is different. Some days I can get up and charge like a bull my day ahead. Others are wrapped with doubt, frustration, and a roller coaster of emotions.
