In honor of Go Red for Women and Valentine's Day. ihearfaces.com is doing a special contest on red. I'd been racking my brain on ways to be creative or stand out or use some awesome props. And believe me, I have some awesome props in red. I even have a pillow that says Call Your Mother all in red capital letters. However I was relaxing on the couch with my husband a few nights ago and all of a sudden he turns to me and says. Is that your heart beat or mine? So we test it to find out. As I take my own pulse I realize that my heart rate is BELOW 60. We're talking athlete heart rate. I've been really struggling with my body image lately wondering why I can't get those last few pounds off from baby J. But as I listened to my own HEALTHY heart rate I realized that I have a beautiful strong body. Full of power and in good health. I'm training for my first 5K in march. Don't worry... that's a HUGE feat for me. It may be a little more difficult to zip up those pants, but my heart is the healthiest it's ever been. I'm proud of all the work I put into it. Here's me in my confident new/ or not so new body. But with a whole new outlook on me. Check out all the red over there.
