Body Love. Struggle.

Today I struggled. I struggled with the desire to just try another diet. Surely this one (which ever one) will work. I have tried just about every whole food ‘diet’ possible. I struggle with wanting to have results. I struggle with clothes being too tight. I struggle with struggling! Should I be struggling, isn’t that just as stressful as restriction? I don’t have any answers today. Just a lot of questions. But here is the truth of the moment. I can still love being me through the struggles. I don’t have to have everything figured out to be loved, especially by me. That leaves me with trying to have fun with my struggles, trying to reframe my questions and trying to find joy in this process.

October 14: Today I love how my mind works, and how powerful my thoughts can be.


Frugal Self-Care Today: I am in the process of redoing my living room, so I gave myself time to look through Pinterest for mural wall ideas (and I think I have found one).
