Picture is worth.....
So I use Facebook as a great resource! Recently I have 'liked' the page MotivateHopeStrength and I am loving some of the picture that they are posting, so I thought I would share a few with you....well a lot really cause there are so many and I finally had to stop downloading them and cap it for this post! LOL!!
So first is this one:
This makes me think of how awesome I feel and the difference on my insides that getting off my butt has made for me.
This one reminds me of the start when it felt like I had to 'give up' things I ate before. When instead I was just now choosing health. It also makes me think about how some of my friends would not understand or put me down when I didn't want to eat or drink the same things as them anymore and they seem to have a hard time with that.....I think that they thought I was judging them for eating the food...I wasn't and didn't care, but I just didn't want to put that type of food into my body after working so hard to be healthy.
This helps me to remember how unhealthy I had gotten and YES it was to save my life. Not just so I didn't die sooner but so there was life in the living that I did. That's why the lovers and the haters can say and do what they want. I feel awesome in my own skin and head and that's what I get to live with 24/7 now :)
LOL!!! This one is SO true. Before I was always looking for the right time, weather, workout clothes etc. This time I didn't think of any of that and just up and got moving with no mind to what OR wasn't going on.....Nike is right! JUST DO IT!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this and I can relate to it too. I just keep moving each day for an hour and then it became a habit and then the habit took over and changed me :)
This is SO true! Before I would just try and do the same things stopping when it got hard or scary or if I was unsure. But it wasn't until I went outside my comfort zone, said "F U!" to the fear that things changed for me....and then they got awesome!!! LOL! ;)
This one just makes me LOL! Because it's kinda true LOL!!!
Word to the Mama's. I have had people ask me how can you spend so much time away from your family doing this? All I have to say to that is...." I go for a run or a class for an hour and I return a better Mom for them and person for me....so we all win!"
I think that this one is my favourite. I have even printed it out and have it on my wall in the front hallway where Nicholas's and my medals are hanging :)
And here are a bunch others that I really liked too :)
'Live in YOUR Awesome!'
