Not the Usual Tuesday Ten

Nobody is harder on me than me.  I know this and those really close to me know it as well.  As regular readers know I've been doing some thinking lately about changing some things and accepting some things.  My sister sent me a link to a Tumblr... this one really hit home:


Visit this link to see the other 9.  There's one (or more) there for you too, I just know it.


  1. Love it! There is more than one that speaks to me! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I needed this today Helen! I was doing my leg exercises - one of the hardest was one legged squats off of a bench - it was hard, but I finished my 4 sets of 8 reps (8 reps on each leg!) when I looked in the mirror and saw my "pooch." I started to get pissed that while the rest of my body is reshaping, my muffin top is alive and well!

    But after seeing that picture - I have to accept that I am stronger than I was in June and that each day I am getting stronger - thanks for the reminder!!

  3. I like this saying, but I really hate the thinspo picture that goes with it.

    1. Lori, I think you're missing the point! The whole tumblr post has those photos, with CORRECTED ways of thinking. So to me, it's like they took that thinspo crap and turned into something beautiful for real women.

  4. I loved this, Helen! I have found that unhappiness with myself is a real negative, and usually means that I am stuck in a "not so good" place. We certainly can be our own worst enemy, and I'm trying to ditch that old behavior, as it never helped. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
