Monday's Motivation

I love this picture. 

I hate the scale.  Not because of the number I'm afraid I'll see.  But because it really is just a number.  I refuse to let it define me.  Sure, I could lose a little weight.  But who cares. 

When I sat down to blog I started to take this post in another direction.  At one point I decided to figure out my BMI.  I didn't even know what number to put in.  I don't remember the last time I weighed myself.  I typed in some hypothetical numbers.  I mean, in general, I know how much I weigh.  Just fyi (according to that): I am overweight, borderline obese.  Those that know me in person will die laughing reading that.  Good grief.  Give me a break.

This week, whatever you do, running/fitness related or not.  Don't let some number on a scale define who you are and how you live you life and eat your food.  Yes, we all need to be mindful of our exercise level and what nourishment we put into our  bodies.  If you are losing weight, that's great.  Don't feel bad for what you've accomplished.  Just take a step back & look at why you are doing this.  What is your motivation?  Don't worry about what the media says.  Who cares what the hottest actor/actress/singer/athlete is doing to look oh so smoking hot.  It's not about them.  It about you and how wonderful, beautiful you are : )

Have a great week!
