I wrote this bible verse in my planner this week. A person’s words can be life giving water. There may be some theological meaning behind it that I don’t quite know, but to me those words stuck out. It got me thinking about the words I speak to myself. Are they life giving words? At this time last year, they most definitely weren’t. In February of last year, I was mother to a new 1 month old. While I should have been rejoicing in that fact, I was looking in the mirror and uttering hateful words to myself. Fat. Ugly. Hideous. Disgusting. Failure. And that doesn’t even hit the tip of the iceberg. And what did those words to do me? They were destructive. They depressed me. I wasn’t even me anymore. I struggled with those hateful words for nearly all of 2011. I lived in a world of negative body image and it was terrible. I hated my body and I hated myself.
I am overjoyed to say I have pulled myself out of that awful place.
I am overjoyed to say that He has pulled me out of that awful place.
The words you speak to yourself can be life giving or they can be destructive.
Choose life giving words.
I am Beautiful. I am Unique. I am Special. I am a Success. I am Loved.

One of my goals for the Spring Chick Challenge is to log 122 workouts by March 19th. As of today, I have logged 87 of 122 workouts. I am only 9 behind schedule which I can easily make up. I am really quite proud of myself for setting this huge goal because it has really pushed me and kept me accountable.
