When I first read about the Proud To Be Me Campaign that Kathy at MamaMarathoner was organizing, I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. When I first signed up, I did it because I thought it would be a good way for me to switch my way of thinking to something more positive and self-loving. Now, after reading the reason that Kathy started this campaign, I realized this was more important than I originally thought and much bigger than just shifting my way of thinking about myself. I hope that in participating in this challenge, I will not only start to shift my way of thinking and learn to love and appreciate myself and the things that make me special, but also inspire you all to think of yourself in a more positive light too.
What are you guys up to today? I’m out and about fitting in a little time at the gym before heading to the fair to no doubt eat all the calories and then some that I just burned at the gym in deep fried fair food. I used to make it to the fair at least once a year, either for work (my old job used to require me to spend a TON of time at the fair), a concert or just for fun with friends, but I’m actually not sure when the last time I went was.
I think it may have been in 2011 when I went with this lady to see the Joe Nichols concert. We were lucky enough to score some meet and greet passes for after the show, but I can’t find my picture! FAIL! (Random side note: I think this photo was taken when I was insanely addicted to spray tanning. Sometimes, I would go twice a week. It was a scary time!)
