Something I don't deserve.

Make that 2 things.
First, God's unfailing love. For real, big man...what were you thinking saving a sinner like me? I suppose you just rock like that. Second, thanks for blessing me with an UNBELIEVABLE husband! I came home last night after run #4 for the week, and it wasn't easy at all. Legs burning, heart rate up, forehead covered in sweat, I sat there in the gym feeling so gross...wondering at what point will I reach my goal?

I came home, headed straight for the bathroom so I could take a quick shower, and I had this waiting on me.


Insert cheesiest smile EVER. I was smitten.

& right then, it kind of hit me, I need to stop being so hard on myself. I'm kicking my own butt in the gym, working out hard 4x a week and eating MUCH cleaner than normal...things WILL pay off. Even if it takes time. Tomorrow marks FOUR WEEKS on my fitness journey and I'm happy to say I am finally seeing results. Small results, but results none the less.

I may not have the clearest skin, the best hair, or the tiniest waist...but my stud of a husband things I'm beautiful, and so does my God.
That's all that matters.

I'll be back tomorrow with my weekend update.
Happy work week ;)

  1. Amen! sometimes I get so down on myself when I don't "see" any progress, but I have to remember that not all progress can be seen... And that my man thinks I am still beautiful no matter what

  20. Absolutely adorable! I think eating clean and pushing yourself to workout when you're not getting any results can be really hard, but you've gotta hang in there!
