Love Note

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. 

Here I am at the finish line of the Rock & Roll 5k. 

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. 

So who would say such things to someone? It might be hard to believe, but it is someone I hold near and dear to my heart. 

It’s myself

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. 

But I get up and tell myself whatever it takes to get out of the bed and get going. Today it was taking more pictures for my own satisfaction. 

Until tomorrow…

  1. We are always the hardest on ourselves. You are a wonderful, beautiful person no matter your outward appearance. I didn’t choose you as my best friend all those years ago because of what you looked like. It was your kindness and sense of humor and that is still true today. So you tell that little nagging voice to back off!! You got this! I am so proud of you for your accomplishments and drive to participate in 5k’s! Keep your head up!! Love ya!!
