For the days
when your waistline
feels more like
do not blame the
wind and waves,
more of you
to kiss the shore.

For quite some time [lately] I have felt a little uncomfortable in my own skin. Not because I have a problem with how I look – that phase of life has long since passed. Moreso because a combination of the aging process and laziness has left my metabolism hibernating and as a result, I don’t [comfortably] fit into a number of my clothes.
A small part of me wants to accept it and slip deeper into the false sense of fluffy security that the extra pounds have brought with them, but in case you haven’t read my “About” page, personal style is of interest to me and I have not the time, money nor inclination to replace my current wardrobe – I like it as it is.
This is more of an accountability post as well as a reminder to love my/yourself irrespective of aesthetic changes. Having said that, if you don’t like something that you have the power to change (weight / job / social circle / fitness), stop complaining and take steps to reorient! It won’t happen overnight but even the longest and hardest journeys begin with the first step.
On that note… does anyone want to come to the gym with me? I want a buddy.
