Sometimes messages find you when you need them. This was one of those times.
I love working out and try to focus on the awesome feeling(s) it gives me… but I am human and it’s hard not to measure my fitness success with my weight.
I hurt my ankle the other day during my 7 mile run (which I did in an hour by the way! Ekkkk! I am so excited about that especially considering where I was when I first started training) and was worried not about healing my ankle but about how an injury could negatively impact my weight (worries like, “oh no! I can’t run. I need to eat less to maintain my weight and blah blah blah).
Silly right? I think so too.
I am redirecting my energy to where it needs to be: getting healthy (mentally as well as physically) and feeling good about myself and not the number on the scale.
I am redirecting my energy to being body positive, eating well and getting off that dang wall when doing my yoga head stand.
P.S. I am not eating less. I enjoy my food way too much. Plus how can I post recipes if I don’t try them?
P.S.S. I am obsessed with studded/ embellished collared shirts!
