Some of us hate what we see when looking in the mirror, whether it’s our nose or legs or smile. Whatever it may be, we all have our insecurities.
I don’t look in the mirror to check myself out. I look in the mirror constantly to see if I look fatter than I did 5 minutes ago.
I’m obsessed with working out.
I can’t follow super models or fitness people on Instagram. It’s hard for me to see people running when I’m not. I go absolutely insane when I have to take time off from running because I can’t enjoy food the same way. When that happens after season, I’m a total nightmare.
Running is the only thing that keeps me sane.
I used to be a chubby-ish child growing up until I picked up running. One summer, I had a bad case of the stomach bug and lost 13 pounds. After that, I became obsessed with my appearance and I didn’t want to gain the weight back. I started to eat cautiously and exercise a lot more.
That’s when I became super insecure.
I’m convinced that I’ve gone through so many injuries throughout my running career because I overwork myself. I run too many miles, I stay on the elliptical for too long, or I’m doing too much physical activity in one day, and I don’t think my body can’t handle it.
I’m totally obsessed with burning calories.
