I climbed on the treadmill yesterday, ready to conquer the world. I knew my workout schedule next week would be messed up, so I was going to “up the ante” this week.
When I’m running, I don’t like to see the numbers. It makes the time drag by and I don’t feel as productive or focused, so I put a towel over the screen. I know it should take nine songs to hit my running goal. At the end of the ninth song, I take the towel off, see where I’m at, jump up and shout (not really), then slow the pace so I can cool down.

For my entire life I have struggled with my body image. I cannot remember a season since I was a child where I was not over obsessed or under impressed with the body that I had to carry around each day. Even when I felt my best, I still always felt like the worst. Whether it was my complexion, skin, weight, height, or hair, I always found something to detest.
