14 Days of Love

14 days of self love!!(wow, that kinda sounds a bit dirty)  14 Days of Love! (yes that is much better)

 Day 1:  Take 20 minutes today that are just about you!  Do something you really love doing (not TV, I find that I am not usually refreshed or feeling better about me after a TV binge), read, take a nice bubble bath, turn up the music and dance, sing, exercise (only if you love it though), a walk outside, craft, cook, bake, just something that you enjoy doing and it needs to be just about you not anyone else.  For me it will be a book and a bath.

There is something about a bath and a good read that always feel refreshed and recharged after something just for me.  Somehow taking a few minutes for me fills my cup, gives me a fresh perspective, and allows me to continue doing some of the things that I need to do without feeling so much like Cinderella.(but without all the helping mice and birds, I am still waiting for the day that I can find birds to make my bed)

Comment below and tell me what you did, how it makes you feel, and when was the last time you did that?

Challenge update

Hey all, sorry it's gotten crazy here this week.  How is everyone doing on no soda?  This was so much easier than I had anticipated...  Why oh why didn't I do this sooner!!!  I am doing awesome on all the challenges so far except the veggies....  I might have to modify that to a fruit or veggie for each meal until I can get into the swing of this.  But I am currently 5 days soda free and feeling easy peasy!!  Next weeks Challenge will be a daily challenge of improving our self image, yes I am doing a challenge within a challenge, but I really feel like it is so important to include all the different parts of wellness/health in the challenge, and self image is such a huge part of a healthy balanced lifestyle.  We will start a day early on Feb 1 and go to the 14th,  with daily challenges that I hope will help you improve your self image.

Love Yourself

With valentines just around the corner I thought is would be fun to have the next on our 12 weeks of wellness be a start to a 14 day challenge of improving our self image and learning to love ourselves a little more.  I know I for one could use some help here.  I have really high expectations of myself, much higher than I have of anyone around me, and I am very hard on myself when I don't meet that.

In the current standard of watching everyone's highlight reel on facebook, instagram, pintrest etc. it is really hard to find that moment of hey I am me and I am awesome.  When was the last time you really felt like you were happy with who you were in every aspect of life. (weight, mom skills, wife skills, running time, housekeeping skills, etc).  Honestly I am not sure I have ever been there.  I live in the moment ahead always looking toward the next goal and in doing that I know I miss the moments that I am in.  I miss seeing how awesome I am right now.  How often have you said if only I had realized how awesome my body was in high school, or in my 20's?  Or how often have you looked at your friend, sister, mother, brother and said wow look how incredible they are at _______ (you fill in the blank), and I can't even do _______....
 Appreciate who YOU are right now,  realize how amazing and awesome YOU are right now! Join me for the next 14 days of improved self image.  There will be a daily challenge each day starting Feb. 1  I will post on FB and on here.  I hope you will join me and love you just a bit more for 14 days and start a spark towards a healthier self image.
