I am super excited! Because I posted out of order, I have already shown off my new Jess LC necklace, but this was actually the first day that I got to wear it. I bought two of them with my birthday money, one for me and one for Jenny, because I really like the message "be present."
Jenny and I had just talked about how sometimes we struggle with thinking about where we need to go, what we need to do, and the horrible statement of "I'll be happy when..." This necklace, a grown up version of a best friends necklace, is to remind us both to be happy now, live in the present, and when it comes to our workouts, just be present and accounted for. I don't know about you, but some days I just don't want to do anything. I don't want to take my outfit pictures. I don't want to go to work. I don't want to do any of my training. Being present in my life means that even if I don't want to do something, I should just do it and be present in it. But even more importantly it gives me permission to move on from the stumbles of the past and be present in right now.
Apparently it is also something they say in yoga, but I like my interpretation! That's why I'm not going to apologize for not posting OR taking any new pictures yesterday and just move on and be present in today!
