This is very hard for me to post, but here goes.
I have eaten really well all week, drank my water, and got in a few workouts too. However, I woke up this morning feeling extremely bloated and lacking in self confidence. When I looked in the mirror, I wanted to cry, throw the covers back over my head, and sleep the day away.
Instead, I washed my face, threw on my school clothes, and grabbed my morning coffee. I started my day like I would any other. Why? Because, the way my body looks does NOT determine my self worth. I’m a body and soul. I don’t stop loving myself when I wake up with a little morning bloat. In fact, I show myself more self love, more self care, and more self acceptance.
Our bodies change all the time! We have to love them for the amazing things they do for us, instead of loathing them for the way we see them in the mirror. Don’t live with a distorted view of yourself. You’re beautiful no matter what you see in the mirror.
