After a crazy week of working, I was excited to finally have a day off (Christmas Day) and I wasn't overly excited about returning to the retail world Monday morning. It was one of those days where guilt of what I had ate the day before setting in and a feeling of hopelessness setting in. "Ugh, will I ever have a flat stomach?" I had lifted earlier in the AM and went back to teach Group Ride. As I walked into the gym and compared my body to all the other thin women in the gym, I let my head droop and walked in to teach class. Barely anyone showed up, but I didn't let that take away from the fact that those who did show up, wanted a good workout. We got our sweat on and as I walked back into the locker room, I said hello to a woman I always see.
She looked right at me and said, "I have some serious work to do today". I laughed and said, "tell me about it"! Her response was not what I was expecting. She was like, "You look great! Why do you need to work so hard?" "Um, look at my belly!" I responded! Her response wasn't what I had expected. "You have great curves.... and your legs are to die for! I wish I could have your legs!" I was taken back...
This week has just begun, but lesson has been learned. I'm always moving forward and making progress.
I encourage you this week to be open to loving and caring for you. When you focus on God and you, your other relationships and actions will fall into place.
