Finishing off the day with some positive thoughts going through my head.
I crushed a late night workout which was killer. I almost talked myself out of doing it...it was 9pm! But I finally told myself I'd totally regret it if I didn't do it.
So I did it...and I'm so glad I didn't let those negative voices in my head stop me. You know, those voices that talk you out of doing what's best for you and then come back around and call you worthless for not getting it done.
Well, not this time. This time I pushed those voices aside and pushed through. It was tough, I wanted to quit at least 20 times, but I didn't.
I can go to sleep proud of myself and wake up ready for a new day.
This momma is giving herself a big pat on the back today. Mostly because I ran 3 miles today for the first time since having our beautiful baby girl 2 months ago. Also, because it felt great AND because we need to be proud of ourselves and our accomplishments in life! If you know me, you know I've been running for the majority of my life. I've always loved running, and really struggled when I needed to completely stop running when I was 25 weeks pregnant. Postpartum, my first run hurt. It truly was painful and my body was not happy with where I was at. Now here I am today, out there crushing 3 miles at a 9:10 minute/mile pace. If I say so myself, that's pretty damn good! This is not a post to boast about myself, or my accomplishments. Instead, it's a reminder that we need to be proud and celebrate ourselves. I think we all know, 'you are your worst critic,' is one of the truest statements that has ever existed. Now it's your turn to throw that to the ground and be proud. Positive self talk is the best way to live life. So what have you done in the past week that you're proud of? #positivethinking#positivevibes#positiveattitude#proud#beproudofyou#running#accomplished#postpartum#mombod#10weekspostpartum#workout#health#fitness#run
My whole life I've struggled with food. Too much, not enough. Starving myself, not eating and eating things I was allergic too for MANY MANY YEARS really messed up my body - as well as my mind. When I was young I was bullied a lot about my weight. I was very ashamed and embarrassed by the way I looked and one day I woke up and told myself "no more. I just won't eat" worst mistake ever. 🙈 I wish I could go back to baby Hannah and say "NOOOO!! YOU'RE SO BEAUTIFUL!! DON'T DO THAT!!" But - I can't. And I'm still trying to correct the damage I did. I go through intense phases where I just hate food. I don't want to eat it - I don't feel good about myself and have no energy. It's awful. But one amazing resource I find during times like these is protein shakes. For me - they are a LIFE SAVER! Whenever I'm having one of those days, weeks, or months - I make myself one promise. That a the VERY LEAST I will have a shake, or make a smoothie with some greens and fruit in it so I'm getting my nutrients. Is that a perfect solution? No. But is it better than allowing myself to drop into old patterns and starve for weeks on end?? Yes. Nothing changes overnight (as much as I wish it did) so I'm sharing a photo of my shake this morning. I threw in my superfood protein powder, some strawberries, banana, kiwi, and spinach. It's yummy, nutritious, and one step towards healing the wounds I created for myself all those years ago. So cheers! Here's to happy, healthy choices that help us heal ❤️🌟☀️🌟☀️🌟 #coachhannah416#barriersdownbarriersdownbarriersdown#expandnotcontract#changingmystory#oldwoundsdoheal#takingitdaybyday#onestepatatime#makinghealthierchoices#selflove#beinginallowance#cheers
Hey ☺ Afgelopen zondag was ik in Stevensweert. Een mooi vestingstadje tussen twee Maasarmen. Tijdens een wandeling richting zonsondergang werd mijn oog (en lens ☺ ) aangetrokken door de mooie weerspiegeling van de waterkant/bomen in niet stromend water. 😍
Jouw spiegelbeeld zegt alles over hoe jij over jezelf denkt en voelt.
Voel jij je ook aangetrokken door jouw spiegelbeeld? M.a.w. ben je blij, tevreden en trots op jezelf? ✌
Je bent het waard! 🙏
Mooi weekend! 💝 🍁 💝
