I broke my mirror tonight. I only have one mirror in my college dorm, and I use it all the time. I guess it’s a nasty habit for those of us that are trying to lose weight or get fit. We constantly look in the mirror at ourselves, judging and critiquing.
I’ve been really down lately. Kind of in general but mostly about lack of progress. I know, I know, even if you don’t see results you’re still getting better so stick to it. And I am, I promise. But still, I’ve been sad that my body doesn’t seem to be changing much.
But tonight, I shattered my mirror beyond repair. It broke it into millions of pieces as it crashed to the floor. And you know what? Maybe it was a sign. Maybe it was a sign that I need to stop judging myself so harshly. Maybe it was a sign to listen to my body instead of looking at it. How does my body feel?
So yes, I’m going to go through this week without a mirror. And I think I’ll be better for it.
Maybe you can try it too.
