Catch up! 

I’ve fallen behind! I struggled for the third week with the self love bootcamp. Luckily Days 16 & 17 tasks were off line. The first involved a mirror challenge. The second a Gratitude list challenge. 

Day 16 was a surprise task & it was to come up with 5 things you loved about your body followed by 5 things your body does for you. Sounds easy enough, right? WRONG! 


For anyone who is body/self conscious this is a difficult task. Finding five things you love while staring at your body in the mirror IS a challenge. Certainly for me! 


I’ve hated my body shape for a long long time. Hated the size I’ve become. I’ve comfort ate. I’ve binge eaten. I’ve ate in the middle of the night (nocturnal eating syndrome if you google 😂) 

I was bullied as a child and teenager about my body. It’s left me full of negative thoughts and wishes of being smaller/ skinnier / like all the other girls. 

The media- oooft, the magazines, tv shows, music videos- they’ve all portrayed these skinny perfectly shaped tanned women and how that’s what we should all strive to be. 

Having all these thoughts that have been in my head from a young age you can see why I found it difficult!


I did however find the second part a little easier thankfully. 


Day 17 was to come up with a gratitude list. To be more aware of what’s around us and be thankful for the things we have. 

 


So that’s Day 16 & 17.  😊😍 self love matters. ❤️❤️❤️
