"If you tell her she's beautiful, she'll think you're sweet, but she won't believe you. She knows that beauty lies in your beholding. You show her she is beautiful. You make mirrors of your eyes, prayers of your hands against her body. Suddenly the story she tells herself in her own head changes. She transforms. She isn't seen as beautiful. She is beautiful, seen." ~ Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind.
You know... not only do I want my lover to see me this way (which he does) but I also want to feel this way about myself. THAT I am still working on. But positive changes have been happening and though this weekend has gone a bit screwy, I am doing my best to remain on track.

Despite my best intentions, I am not going running this morning. I am bringing my running things with me, and will see if I can sneak it in. But, since I am helping a friend move over the weekend, I think I'll get my workout anyway. Then it's right back to the gym on Monday.

Now that I have a taste of success and can say I completed one day of C25K, I want to be able to day I completed a week.

After-all, the savior of the world and destructor of undead things doesn't give up! Not this girl...

Now where are my running shoes....
and my shotgun....

ETA: I WANT this shirt!!

most of us are more critical of our own selves than anyone else is. It's a great kindness, and an act of love to see ourselves through their eyes from time to time.
