Sometimes you're in a shitty #mood and you don't wanna smile. And that's okay. Embrace those emotions and feelings and let them wash over you. Feel them and explore them and be curious of their origin. Feelings and moods aren't good or bad, they just are. (now don't mind me as I slip into comfy clothes and make myself the biggest cup of hot cocoa)
Tonight I struggled toward the end. Felt like I was running out of steam.
But I thought of my team and accountability group and how they are really pushing one another along. I thought about all the compliments and inspiration they are giving one another. It gave me the push I needed to finish.
Not perfection by any means but persistence. We strive for progress and boy there has been so much internal and external progress in our group! That makes me happy.
As I sit here showing myself some self love because it's my last night of winter break AND I'm getting a cold (), I cannot stop thinking about the Why I Joined BBG tag that the beautiful @_crystal_marshall challenged me to answer... and I think this post is a perfect time to respond. so here goes nothing
After struggling with crippling anxiety and sudden weight gain all throughout college (I'm in my fourth year currently), I knew I needed to make a lifestyle change. I was consistently staying at home when I wasn't at school or working because I just didn't feel well and I hated how I looked. I would blow off plans with my friends and boyfriend because I didn't have the energy to keep pretending that I was happy and put together. I avoided working on my assignments because it was easier than facing the panic attacks that I knew they were going to trigger. I let my anxiety control my life and it soon joined forces with depression.
I lived like this for TWO AND A HALF YEARS until I came across the BBG program last March. While I have started on and off and have yet to successfully complete the guide, that has become my goal for 2017 along with finishing BBG 2.0 . I've found a caring, welcoming community that not only accepts everyone's individual differences, but welcomes them. A place where I'm comfortable sharing my progress and I know that I'll be held accountable. Overall, I want to look and, perhaps most importantly, FEEL beautiful in my own imperfectly perfect skin. And THAT, my friends, is why I joined BBG.
Okay, RANT OVER. tagged ladies - tell us why you joined the BBG community! 🏼

I didn't get my workout in until I started the laundry, sweeping was done and kids were fed....it was about 6pm BUT I got it in!
