Linking up today with some ladies who put together this lovely idea... I found it from a new friend, Leah over at Beautifully Molded :)
Lately, I've been feeling inadequate. This week has been very draining, and full of too many thoughts. I've found noticed lately that I compare myself to anyone and everyone. How hypocritical of me? I'm always "everyone is beautiful in there own way"... so whats with this?
I am not happy with my body, or what consumes my thoughts. I am too hard on myself, but I feel like I have to be. I've always had to take care of myself, and up until I met Caleb I never really felt that good about myself. As of late, I'm not that satisfied with my body and I've decided to finally do something about it. I want to hit the pavement again, and that's what I've been trying to do. My goal is to be able to run 5 miles no problem. If you knew me back in High School, this was no problem. But lately, I run a mile and I'm sore for 2 weeks.
The past two weeks Caleb and I have been running on and off again, and its making me happier. I feel good about myself afterwards, even when my heart rate is through the roof. It makes me want to eat better, and not put so much garbage into my body. I've been reading my bible more, and I'm realizing that in order to feel good, I have to treat myself right. Not only be eating healthier, but by realizing I am beautifully made. God doesn't see me the way I see myself. He doesn't see flaws; He see's beauty, although I'm a sinner.
I am realizing in order to become the best wife I can be to my future husband, I have to be happy with myself and fair to myself. He deserves my attention, not having to worry about me dwelling on my own problems. He deserves a loving and healthy wife.
So, I'm hitting the pavement... and I can't wait to report back to you guys with my progress. I can do this, I can do this.
:) PS- Its almost Friday.
