Today’s gratitude is to write something positive about my body. I cannot say I love my body right now as I have gained a few pounds since Covid19 began. In addition to drinking my weight in wine times ten this summer which has not helped me in my efforts to shed a few pounds.

Despite the few extra pounds the one positive thing about my body is that it is strong and healthy. Having a strong, healthy physique is a good place to start when you love to walk daily and enjoy the outdoors.

I need to remind myself that I can still run 5kms, and I can walk for miles on end. I can still drop and do 10 burpees in a row following some mountain climbers. I am not perfect, but I am strong enough and healthy enough to do better.

My body is strong and healthy and for this I am very grateful. I will get to where I want to be once I start drinking as much water as I do wine (I don’t drink that much, but pretty sure the wine hasn’t helped me meet my weight goals!).

Peace & Love – Rachel

Living in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia. BA in Political Science, bailed on pursuing law school, some how wound up in the wonderful world of HR. Blogging about everything under the sun from social injustices, minimalism & the corruption of over consumerism, mental health issues, diet, dating, book/restaurant/product reviews (only if I truly like them), and social issues. I hope to encourage and inspire being as authentic as I can be. I hope you enjoy what I have to share and please feel free to drop me a line.
