This week’s Lingerie Is For Everyone is about self love going into Valentine’s Day.
It’s easy to say this made up holiday has no meaning, but it’s hard to ignore when others participate in it. I often contemplate how Valentine’s Day can make you feel a bit left out in love. Getting little cards in school or candies from someone who likes you. Flowers, surprise gifts, or something that means someone notices you. I never got those things.
Self-love has meant self-care to me.
Me, pre-run. I don’t feel sexy, but this is often how I look. My everyday sports bra. Winter has made maintaining fitness difficult, but I’m trying to retrain my brain to remind myself that there are dips and they are okay. My body is allowed to change, I’m allowed to eat and enjoy food. My dedication to my personal fitness will bob back up again. I just need to zen for now.
I never got cards or candy on Valentine’s either. No, never is not right… I once did. From my kids. they gave me a mug with a care bear on it, and many bright red hearts. I still have it 🙂
You look lovely, and like you say, when the warmer weather comes, you will bounce back to exercise, and if not, that’s fine too.
I just need to give myself a little space to be where I am. I’m sure I’ll bounce back.
You will always be a Valentine to me, Cara, every time I see you in fact.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you, Elliott.
Love the top image – u just look perfectly Cara! I can’t see the next one for some reason x
How odd! I can see it on one thing but not on something else. Thanks for the heads up
I hear you on the Valentines Day stuff. I just ignored it this year. Felt all too much for me.
Fitness wise I am trying to keep going. I have recently discovered Yoga on youtube, Yoga with Adriene and I am a little bit in love with her. She is so calming and the yoga has been a surprising workout. It has made muscles I didn’t know I had ache. I am currently on day 15 of a 30 days of yoga thingy
I keep meaning to do more yoga but haven’t managed to get back into it like I like.
