Do you actually give yourself praise?
I know that in my own journey through losing weight, overcoming binging, and reaching fitness goals my biggest and loudest cheering section has been myself..WHEN I listened to it. We are also our own worst enemies and if we don’t take time to give ourselves praise, then we’ll lose track of all that we’ve accomplished.
FIVE THINGS I AM PROUD OF!
1. The Exposed Movement.
I can’t believe that I did it originally and that it’s has gone to the levels that it has. The movement has been covered all over the world and has not only touched me, but those who have participated and who have read the stories!
I remember in high school when I couldn’t even run a mile. I had to walk the whole thing, and it took me over 15 minutes. I cried when I was running this race, it meant so much to me. It was also a turning point for me in my journey of recovery and starting to re-build my faith in myself.
3. Being nominated for this award by BigGirlBombshell
I was nominated because of my ‘honesty’. I find one of the biggest compliments of my readers is when their say that they appreciate my honesty. It just means so much to me.
4. Fuelling my body with stuff it can eat.
Riced Apple & Banana Porridge
1 apple, grated
1 small banana, chopped
1.5 tsp vegan spread
.5 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt, nutmeg, ginger
.5 c. white rice, cooked
1 c. milk of your choice–I used hazelnut/rice milk blend
1 tsp. xantham gum
In a small saucepan heat vegan spread and then saute the apple/banana for about 2 minutes.
Add cooke white rice and saute for about 2 minutes
5. Taking a HUGE risk and becoming a nurse
I already have two degrees in Education. I left a good paying job to pursue a degree in nursing, taking on a HUGE amount of debt…but it’s WHERE MY HEART IS. There are SO many people who are in jobs that don’t fulfil them, I just couldn’t make myself do it anymore. I am following my dreams and you know what..God/The Universe is taking care of the details.
Give me at least ONE thing you’re REALLY proud of!
