This Months UniversiTeeBox is all about the Selfie. In fact it's all about falling in love with yourself. Something I am a advocate for. Self care is not selfish, it's important and you can't love others without it. For some reason when this box arrived all I felt was anxiety. Anxiety over my drawer of T-shirts that I don't wear because I owe three pairs of pants, but live in tights 95% of the time.
Anxiety that everything would be gold. I hate gold, I'm tired of gold. Can the gold phase go away?
And lastly anxiety over my stomach
I have been working out consistently since January 2, I haven't missed a beat. I added second workouts on February 22. I feel better, I'm stretched out nicely, my muscles are getting tight. But my stomach... hates me. Two months ago shirts looked comfy now I feel/look ridiculous in them. It's disheartening.
And for the first time since signing up for the UniversiTeeBox it didn't give me a boost. The empowerment of body positivity was lost on me. And that's sad because it's seriously an amazing program.
I got all dressed up hoping to change my mind. Tried out a different way of styling things and the discomfort won't go away. This month you aren't getting a pretty happy photos. You are getting the truth. I couldn't fake it for the photos. I'm uncomfortable and not running at my best this week.
