I’m having one of those days that just isn’t really good. I do feel like I’m trapped in a nightmare. The one thing I need to always remember is everyone has problems, right? Everyone is dealing with something and everyone is having their own type of day. I don’t want to be overly dramatic about it because it’s probably just a little blip on the radar. Everything seems so much bigger when you’re going through it, right?
I had another blog post planned today but I wanted to be real. The social media world presents our facade life. You get to see the parts of my life that I want to share with you. And honestly, I only choose to share with the happy times. The times when I smile. That doesn’t give you an accurate picture of the person I really am. All you see the happy, motivating fitness woman.
But what about everything else? People often ask me: “do you struggle?” or “do you have bad days?”
Why yes I do. But unless you’re uber close with me, those are things that you really don’t get to see. Those are things you don’t get to know.
My favorite is: “do you do anything else besides workout?”
I do other things too. Sometimes I feel like I need to fit into this box of being the weight loss poster child or the fanatic running girl because that is my life here at momworksitout.com. I feel like the name has pigeon holed me into a genre that I don’t want to upset. I don’t want to be stuck in the pigeon hole.
No, I don’t think I am the poster child for weight loss but I do know people look up to Willie and I for what we have accomplished. I know people have questions and want answers…and I want to provide that. And I know I LOVE to run, but I’m a little more than that. It’s an alienating factor that sometimes makes me unapproachable.
The point of this post is to say, I’m not anyone special. I’m still a person. I laugh. I cry. I break out into random song. I travel. I take pictures. I’m focused almost to the point of tunnel vision. I watch bad reality television. I read chick lit and non-fiction. I have good days and I definitely have bad days.
And I hope that you’ll allow me to show that here on the little space I’ve carved out on the web.
Thank you and have a wonderful day.
