I was going to write a post about some minor injuries I am dealing with, but then I caught myself having some more positive thoughts this week and decided to share those instead.
On several occasions this week, I have looked in a mirror and been happy with what I see. I still have a little more work to do (my favorite pair of pre-pregnancy jeans still don’t fit) but I am comfortable with my progress so far.
I had a baby. My body is different now. I can accept that. That doesn’t mean I just want to sit on the couch, 15 pounds heavier than before. I’ve worked to lose almost 10 of those pounds. And now that I am within sight of my “goal,” I’m finding some satisfaction.
I think we all need to remember to put a positive spin on things. If we are working toward change, we should be able to look in the mirror and be happy with our progress.
So cheers to everyone who is making healthy changes. Even if you haven’t achieved your ultimate goal yet.
(The look is because I was about to brave the cold for a run)
You look amazing. Enjoy your run!
Any of us that have had kids know that certain body parts are never quite the same…I wear it like a badge of honor dammit! You look great and you ran in that cold! (It is amazing that I can even break a sweat in this weather, but I do.)
Brave the cold? You are so funny. 🙂
I hope you continue to keep your positive attitude and the minor injuries don’t set you back too far!
I’m sorry you have some injuries, but I love that you decided to focus on being positive instead!
