This isn’t going to be a post about how amazing this day is. I don’t have anyone special to celebrate it with and I know I’m not alone on that one. So I thought I’d just say this;
Treat yourself today by improving your health.
Don’t sit and gorge on ice cream, wine and chocolate “because it’s Valentine’s Day”. I’m having a nice burrito dinner with some wine tonight but I’m not crying at Love Actually because I’m single. I’ve already been to the gym this morning! Love yourself and make yourself happy with you. If you don’t love who you are, no one else will.
Changes are not easy but the difference it could make is incredible. Trust me. I put on heaps of weight in my first semester at University and looking at photos I hated it. I was uncomfortable with myself. I was not obese or overweight but I was bigger than I had ever been and it was because I let my emotions get in the way. If you feel uncomfortable with yourself then make a change! Set yourself a promise that on Valentine’s Day 2016 you’ll be different!
It’s not about being skinny it’s about being fit, healthy and strong.
That heart of yours will thank you for it. A box of chocolates and a flower for one day won’t make it quite so happy in the long run.
