I have been an oversized sweater selfie queen lately. 🙊
Post-work trail run on a beautiful day ⛅
I didn’t post about this, but last night I was quite upset with my body. I tried to fit into one of my old pairs of jeans and they were quite snug, but then I remembered something. I bought those jeans when I was obsessing over every morsel of food that entered my mouth and tried to exercise it all away. Who wants to fit into such a miserable pair of jeans in the first place?
So I took this picture this morning, while looking in the mirror and admiring every curve and everything that makes me, me.
I am happy with my body and love it for everything that I can do. All the miles it takes me, the yoga poses I pretzel myself into, the rope I can jump, the ability to laugh, smile, hug loved ones, and eat delicious food.
Even I, who tries to help others believe it, occasionally needs a reminder that I am much, much more than a number ❤
Wilderness adventures were a success! 🍂🍁🌲🐶
It was absolutely beautiful just being in nature. Not only did I see (and hear!) loads of animals including some elk, deer, tarantulas, trout, and a few owls, but there were also lots of s’mores involved. Plus looking at the stars, a massive campfire, quality time with family and Duke (my wacko little puppy), and spontaneous dips in the lake.
I obviously was not prepared (hence the undies) as it was about 40 degrees outside and probably about 40 in the lake as well, and my dad thought I’d lost it, but sometimes you have to do crazy things like that just for a laugh (even if you freeze your absolute bum off) :) x
