Truth be told...

I've been feeling a little off this week.

And because of that....

I'm not going to sit here and sugarcoat my truth. (Nope!)

I mean...

I don't ever want to give the impression that things are always perfect. (Because they aren't. I am human and I have feelings. Yes, it's true lol)

So let me feel you in...just a little bit...on a few things.

Truth be told...

This week started off with my motivation being all over the place...

I found it hard to get dressed and make my way to the gym.

That said...

I am reminded to be grateFUl for being able to get out, exercise and treat my body and mind to what they deserve. 

Truth be told...

Post-competition blues still lurks around me from time to time...

Even if I'm having the time of my life running...
All over the place.

That said...

I am reminded that I am more than that. (That it's a process. And, I will get through it.)

Truth be told...

Some days I struggle with balance...

Even if I'm standing on my own two feet.

That said...

I am reminded that our journey through life is not always going to be easy.

That...

It is in our hands to practice and be mindFUl of the balance we seek and need.

Truth be told...

Sometimes I feel a little lost...

And I don't know what direction to go in.

That said...

I am reminded that life is made up of many paths.

Paths that are meant for us to discover and explore.

In other words...

It's okay not to know exactly in what direction to go because...

Once we get there, wherever that place may be, each and every turn taken will have all been worth it! (No matter how windy and difficult the path may prove to be at times, we will have grown as a result of it all!)

Truth be told...
Sometimes we all just need a Teddy Hug ;)

Question FU You...

What is your truth today?

  1. OH YOU KNOW I CAN SO SO SO RELATE.
    hence my exposed post.
    hence EXPOSING in a bathing suit being so much less revealing than EXPOSING with my words...

  4. Sorry for feeling off girl, but the good thing about these days or weeks are: they fill us with new experiences and lessons AND they pass. I can absolutely relate and sending lots of love and power your way!!

  6. I hear ya, my truth is I am feeling very frustrated, haven't lost any weight in a month, diet is great still going to the gym 5 days a week, weights 2xs a week and lots of cardio, I sometimes feel like giving up, but my battle with breast cancer has made me a survivor and tomorrow is another day, I guess we all plateau in some way, hang in there girl, you inspire us all

  7. I love the honesty here - sometimes when I read blogs I feel like everyone but me has it all together all the time (I know that's impossible but..). I hope that you are able to take some time this week and regroup and just enjoy life!!!

  9. I totally understand how you feel. Just got back from vacation and work has been nuts all week. Take care Kierston!

  10. Sounds like a lot of us are going through something similar right now. Thanks for being honest about it, it's great to not feel alone in this.

  11. Love the honesty. Life isn't perfect, ever. It's what we make of it right? Truth be told? I should NOT have tried to run today.

  12. Thanks for sharing...we all can relate, I'm sure! Hope you are finding your normal mojo asap!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yes, totally normal. I love how you take the positive spin to everything though.

  14. 100% know that feeling. Some days or weeks you just need to chill. Motivation is awesome, but I've learned that sometimes my body (and my head) need to be slackers and sit in the back row with their head on the desk. They'll still get an A on the test next week. ;)

  15. I so appreciate your honesty lovely! Truth be told I've been a bit down lately too. Injuries do that to you. I'm focusing on the fact that I can still walk and carry my body places and for that I am truly grateful!

    ReplyDelete
  16. i appreciate your honesty because i often admire how you seem to have the whole balance, self love, happiness thing down. not that i am happy to hear you struggle too but it makes me feel less alone and also not so down on myself if i'm having a hard day in terms of food guilt, loving my body, etc. everyone has these days. it doesn't mean i'm destined to live with it forever!

  17. Truth be told - that it is time to buckle down and focus and get back into training mode...enough slacking

  18. Sometimes you just gotta take a break!

  19. I had some post-race blues this week... I appreciate your honesty. Life is full of ups and downs!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I adore your post and being so open and honest with all of us! You are an amazing person and I just adore you! Truth be told.. I haven't been 100% lately either, lack of exercise and my health issues have put me in a funk! With that said I have been forcing myself back to sanity every morning and just trying to stay positive with what little bits I have energy for.
    You will get to the place you want to be! I know you will! Xoxo

  21. Kierston - so get this!!! I have gone thru this so many times in my life & now at almost 56, here I am again... some days I do not want to get to the computer - too much going on in the mind.. I wrote on Carla's exposed post how words & thoughts are way more revealing to mew than a pic & I tend to keep them bottled up these days...

    HUGE HUGS!!! Love this post & thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Such a great truth and thank you for sharing it! I think we all have days when motivation is low, when you just don't want to go to the gym or just 'push through' like you have on other days and that's ok. I think sometimes you don't just need to listen to your body or your mind but look at what your soul / spirit needs and sometimes it just needs some love and kindness and not be forced to do things.

    Teddy Bear hugs would definitely help!! He is the absolute cutest as always :)

  23. You are an inspiration even with these set backs- keep it up you powerFUl champion-

    Truth- I think I'm suffering a burnout- exercise + overstudy + procrastination = recipe for disaster.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I get that way often around this time of year. Definitely the changing of the seasons and how dark it is brings me down a bit. I appreciate your honesty!

    ReplyDelete
  25. love this post! I've been super contemplative this week and today I was majorly stressing out...........I needed this reminder to just live, be and be okay not knowing where some of my paths are taking me. xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  26. I definitely feel out of whack this week. I don't know if it's the changing seasons or the intensive time spent over the weekend in my teacher training program but I was definitely beating myself up over it on Monday and the truth is that it's OK for me to feel off from time to time. Love this post.

  27. Sometimes life really has a funny [or at times not] way of keeping us in the unknown, sidelining and then leading us back to the 'normal' path again.
    Thank you for being honest and not pretending life was sunshine and rainbows all of the time. I hope you'll get back into your groove soon.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I hope you get your mojo back soon - it's frustrating feeling out of sorts. x

    ReplyDelete
  29. It is so true that there is SO many different paths for use to explore, and the amazing thing is we can take our time doing so. Glad you are keep your head up girl, that motivation will be back before you know it!

  30. Post competition blues are a tough one but I like your attitude and although it's a struggle; remember the struggles are all apart of the journey :)
