Title of this post? A direct quote from my trainer. He’s right. I don’t give myself enough credit. I’m stronger than I think. I’m more fit than I think. I am better at training than I think. *sigh* It’s often hard to believe that, but I’m working on it. I say those phrases out loud sometimes. It helps.
Also, I know why I prefer to be behind the camera rather than be in front of it. I see pictures of myself and feel like I photograph HUGE sometimes. Especially when I’m being photographed next to my “little” friends. That’s an honest statement, and it’s MY hang up.
It’s Sunday, and I’m having the “Sunday night anxiety blues.” Fortunately, this doesn’t happen often, but I can’t the thoughts that creep in about my fitness journey. I work out. Often. Is eating my downfall? Probably. Do my “conditions” play a part? Maybe. I know for a fact that I won’t be a size 8 again, and I know it’s not necessarily the size you are but how healthy you are, but I wouldn’t be normal if I didn’t look at a picture of myself or look in the mirror and not be a little……disappointed sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, I love myself. I have self confidence. I’m happy. I just…..have my moments.
I think in anyone’s fitness journey, you’re going to have those moments. I guess it’s all in if you decide to SHARE those moments.
So, in closing, I will issue a positive statement about myself. I am a sexy, voluptuous, active and healthy woman. So, THERE!
Have a happy week, y’all!
