Isn’t facebook a wonderful thing !!! Sometimes NOT, I’ve just shared a memory of Simon and I having a lovely weekend with Simon’s sister Phil and her hubby John… but whilst I am looking at the photo’s I am realising that I am much fatter than I was then.
So I’m telling my head … Oh it doesn’t matter but this is the thing. I am fatter than I was, but considering all the rubbish I have been through I am only about 8 pounds heavier than my normal weight. However I think that my body composition has changed so that more of that weight is FAT not Muscle as it used to be.
It’s very difficult when you have a back problem like mine to burn off extra calories daily. I thought that walking Netball would be ok, but at 4am my foot and lower leg were throbbing … hmmmmmmm – I got up at 5.30 and thought (very positively) I will make the most of my extra morning time and catch up with the ironing and Grace and Frankie !!!
I miss running
I used to run everywhere
Running was my freedom, my meditation, my fat burning engine
So how do I deal with the lack of running… Let’s see what the spinal unit can help me with next week.
But in the mean time… I reflect on those memory photo’s in Abersoch and realise that 4 years ago I was getting over the stomach operation and didn’t then know that I was going to be told I had incurable Cancer in my liver …..
No wonder I was thinner !!!
So let’s be careful what we wish for. Remembering that now is our only time, whether we are fat or thin, young or old, Now is our only time.
8lbs overweight – but recovering nicely from Dry Socket and my energy is coming back better than before the tooth problem I might add….
Is 8lbs of chubby scattered around my 5ft 8 being going to make me unhappy…. Well there was a time when it would have.
But NOW is Now and I am me and I will be as beautiful as I think I am……
lots of dots today…
So today I choose to love my extra poundage, and realise that I am not a greedy piggy, I eat healthy food and yes if I gave up totally all the good things in life, a few more would drop off, but so would part of my life.
Here’s to trying a little x trainer and cycle next week and a good yoga stretch… Oh by the way Jas really likes coconut oil… To sooth my foot I rubbed some on which immediately got licked off by the puppy !! oh delightful indeed .. crikey I’m glad it was my foot (insert gross face look)
So here’s a lovely painting of “The Three Graces” which I think is very appropriate as I didn’t know that my mother and her two sisters Joan and Marion had posed for this painting !!! Get you mother (cowers waiting for glare lol)
Right now at this precise moment, we are whatever weight we are. The best thing to do if we are not happy about that is put an energy action plan into place.
What can I do to get feeling better about myself.
Tip number one and only tip.
Believe you are beautiful right now and simply adjust eating habits to be healthier and get moving in some way.
Anyway enjoy your shape what ever you are… if you are not feeling great about yourself.. Look in the mirror and tell yourself you love you.
Think beautiful, think fabulous, think lovely me
We are beautiful, see it and believe it…
Our beauty shines through our energy and our love and we can all find some of that to share….
Be happy Be Now
Love from me
Gill POSITIVE NOT PERFECT.
