Day 2 of the 30 day self-love challenge in which I am (belatedly) participating required me to acknowledge and thank gifts of my body. It was kinda weird as I spend much time despising my body. I avoid looking at the-wholeness-of-me. I look at my eyes as I put my contact lenses in each day. […]

Earlier this week I decided to participate in a (non-competitive) blogging challenge that is in fact, over. Indeed it’s done and dusted, but because I liked the idea of ’30 days of self-love’ I decided to embark on the challenge belatedly and – hopefully – in so doing, indulge in some self-discovery and personal growth. The 30 […]

I’ve decided (belatedly) to follow blogger (Tina’s) ’30 days of self-love initiative’ which she kicked off on her own website in September last year. Her challenge (for other bloggers) was to bring about a positive change into their lives through some personal reflection on a daily basis; which she instigated by introducing a daily theme. Today is day […]

30 days of self-love

June 26, 2011

I’ve recently discovered a blog (and blogger) who had a binge-eating history, but overcame that and other bad habits by taking a long look at herself. There was no magic wand, no miracle, just hard work and determination. Tina’s blog, Faith Fitness Fun details the personal growth and self discovery that allowed her to live out […]

Some of the suggestions reminded me of the mindset discussions we have had as part […]

Today was a first for me, as I went to a boot camp organised by another participant on my weight loss program. It isn’t like I haven’t done group fitness before: as a kid I played A LOT of basketball, including representative stuff involving quite a bit of fitness training; I’ve been a member of […]

I imagined myself in 12 weeks time; I identified my strengths; and I acknowledged my supporters. Yesterday I started considering the next challenge: I want you to write yourself a letter entitled “The […]

Riding the wave

June 22, 2011

Last week the Video Message from our fearless leader, Michelle, talked about our emotions, our motivation and our willpower muscle. At the time I was on a high – as per my recent posts. But I knew what she meant by the highs and lows that we all experience. I’d been there before and I […]
