I know I've been gone for a while now and honestly, I'm not sure if I'll be back much around here. I've been really focusing on living in the here and now and honestly, this blog doesn't really fit in with that.
Now, you're probably wondering, why on earth are there pictures of you all sweaty in workout clothes? Well, that's an excellent question.
I love getting dressed up. I do. I love putting in an effort into my appearance not for anyone else's benefit, but purely for my own. But the reality is, that's just part of me. The other part of me spends over an hour, six days a week covered in sweat and wearing workout clothes. I have always really struggled with my weight and body image in general but since my birthday a few months ago, I've really been focusing on challenging myself in my workouts and appreciating my body for all the amazing things it can do. I've always worked out but I've never really done it with the right intentions. In these past few months though, I have completely surprised myself with what my body can do when I put my mind to something. I may not have lost any weight these past few months (in fact, I've gained some) but I am stronger than I have ever been. Today, I did a mile of walking lunges for the second time (the first being last month). That's a total of 1,624 lunges. Just a couple of weeks ago, I did 100 normal push-ups. Not consecutively but I did them. Our bodies are truly miraculous things and every single day, I try to remember that although this body isn't perfect, it is all mine and incredibly strong. My thighs may not be small and my arms may be a little bulky but they can do amazing things and for that, I absolutely love them.
So I know this isn't the usual "fashion blog" post but I wanted to share some of what makes me, me.
Hope you're having a great week.
