Note to self...whiskey & running training donโ€™t mix #dearbodyimsorry #neveragain ๐Ÿฅƒ๐Ÿšซ
I canโ€™t help but stare at my face in this photo. At first all I could think was โ€˜this is the ugliest photo ever taken of meโ€™ but the longer I look at my face, the more I see the concentration & the pure determination in that moment. I wasnโ€™t going to give up, even though my body was starting to get tired & my throat felt raw from the cold air. I knew I was close & I had to keep pushing, so I just focused on taking it one step at a time.
โ€ข

Looking at this photo makes me feel proud...proud that I took on that first challenge even though I didnโ€™t feel ready. Proud that I gave it my all & let myself enjoy the experience. Proud that I didnโ€™t let my fear of failing & insecurities about my body hold me back. I showed up & I will never regret it!!
โ€ข
So maybe the negative, insecure part of me still sees my imperfections in this photo, but the positive side of me - the side Iโ€™m learning to listen to - sees a goal-driven, determined woman who pushed forward to finish what she started!!

This is only the beginning for me... #first5K #bringonthenextchallenge

โœจFeel Good Friday Postโœจ
I debated for a long time whether or not to post this because I was worried about what people might think...would it make them feel uncomfortable? Am I showing too much skin?
.

But you know what I realized? I freaking LOVE this photo & anyone thatโ€™s not feeling it can just keep on scrolling! .
.

I have FINALLY realized that before I can change my body, I need to love every inch of it...from my arm dimples to my tiger stripes to my tiny nose...I need to love the crap out of it because itโ€™s ME! If you love your body, it will love you back! .
.

Itโ€™s so important to capture the moments when you are feeling confident & beautiful & happy, no matter where you are or what youโ€™re wearing!! .

Channeling my happy place of basking in the Caribbean sun, brushed by the lazy warm breeze & buzzing on a few tequila cocktails as I brace myself for a wintery walk to work in the #snowmageddon that is Victoria right now (ok that may be a tad dramatic but for reals man...Iโ€™m ready for summer!) โ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ
