Glimpse of Glory or ...is it Ugly?

the other night at the gym i was doing my extra cardio and i turned to look at myself in the mirror. i'm my own worst critic. really, i don't think i have ever been happy with myself. although i have been told the opposite (mostly by guys tryin to get some), i just feel like i always want to change somethin about me. by the way, i've been told more than once by different people that i look like a cross between tyra banks and J-lo...WTF! WTF does that mean??? i don't see it....

anyway, as i was looking and beating myself up over what i saw (by the way, i look better than I ever have in my life right now), the guy next to me on the treadmill asked me if i had done magazine covers. i was like, whatever. he said, no really, you look like someone i saw on a fitness magazine recently. he was serious and even told me he would bring it in to the gym next time to show me. all i know is this, God sometimes brings things just when we need them. after he said that, i looked in the mirror and said, DAMN, i do look freakin HOT :) then i remembered something Tony (www.dreambodies.net) told me once about how i need to understand who "i" am. he was right. no matter if that guy brings the magazine or not, i need to see the good and not the ugly. on another note, damn those shin splints :(

I think that is the hardest thing to overcome...being too critcal of yourself. I understand what you are saying...people say lovely things to me and it goes in one ear and out the other. Thing is that...lately...i have allowed some of those nice thoughts to linger and it makes a world of difference.

Know you ARE beautiful....believe in it and you!

I hate mirrors! That is also why sometimes when I take my pics I chop my head off. I think my body looks alright until I see it's me? Weird I know.
