Your Body Is A Gift

It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis. In that moment it didn't take a genius to figure out that my body is really dealing with a lot of inflammation. And that I had been eating more for fun than for healing and nutrition.

It was definitely another nudge for me to really work on focusing to eat with a purpose. Oh, another highly processed cookie, another scoop of ice cream, another handful of marshmallows re…

So Glad That Valentine's Day Is Over

Anyone else glad that Valentine's day is over? I personally am. And by mid afternoon / evening yesterday, I had banned myself from Facebook.

Honestly, it's too much pressure. It felt like the duel between the have and the have nots? You feelin' me on that?

Just Friday I posted about What Is Love? And although my feelings didn't change since that post, it was extremely hard not to get caught up in what it felt like my Valentine's day should have been.

Yes, hubby surprised  me by planning ahead and getting me flowers (which I love).

But the day was
by no means what I was seeing on Facebook or what Valentine's day is commercially made out to be.

And I woke up this morning so glad that it was over. And I had the same conversation that I have had with myself in years past. Why oh why do I let this day get to me? Single or married, why do I let this day create such havoc and negative emotion in my life!?!

And why do I always feel such relief when the day is finally over?

When am I going to learn?

I had hoped it would be this year but apparently not (insert sarcasm). Maybe next year.

What about you? Do you ever let social media make you feel as if you aren't measuring up to what others are doing? Am I the only one who struggles with comparing myself to others?

  1. I had such a crappy week that Valentine's Day was meaningless to me. I guess that's a silver lining, right? I even forgot to give my boys their valentines I bought for them. It's not a big day at our house anyways.

    1. Sorry about your crappy week! My son LOVES all holidays ha ha... so I think we'll be celebrating every holiday now which Hubby and I haven't really done in the past.
