embersherman Day 12. Confession time. Yesterday, I messed up the day 10 prompt 4 times, gave up and did something else. Today I smudged ink all over and my S looks like a pregnant goose and I ran out of room, etc., etc....I struggle with my imperfections...and God gently put in my mind and heart what @jenniesallen said at @ifgathering this past weekend...[talking about washing Peter's feet] "Put your dirt out, I am about to wash it for good!" (And obviously a hand lettering mistake isn't my "dirt"...I know that. #metaphoryo) #handlettering #brushlettering #brushpen #letteritfebruary #letteritfebruary2016 #practiceeveryday #embraceimperfection 1h

imperfectly_jo A little uneasy about my intake yesterday but I had Puffins and almond milk for breakfast!
I have to remember that it just takes ONE STEP. One small step of eating breakfast will push me to be comfortable around food. One small step of reducing my runs will push me to have a healthy relationship with exercise. One small step of adding a snack to my day will help my metabolism.
Hope everyone has a great Friday! --

imperfectly_jo This dinner freaked. me. out. Pizza from Dominos but I ate all that is pictured plus an apple. My sister (who is beautiful, skinny, eats but is still underweight) ate, I kid you not, 5 of the big slices pictured! Maybe I will push myself to eat one more of the thin slices later because I am still kind of hungry.
Pizza is so darn good. ED Is just a stupid party pooper.
Today I'm going to sleep early because I worked hard today and yesterday. I did a P90X workout today and hopefully gained some muscle haha! 🏼

alumakesthings I made this drawing months ago. This was one of those random moments in the last 9 years where I sat down and tried to paint or draw again. I remember I just had fear of doing it all wrong because I hadn't done it in years. I felt like I was not good enough. I decided to use a topic that has the same effect on me: Motherhood. Mindblowing scary feeling of being a mom. I know many of you know what I mean or will know soon enough. Being a mom it's being life-changing, it's a never ending learning experience. When I think, "oh I got this!" Gaby is already in another stage, and there are new issues to face! And I have had my moments "omg, I am not as a good mom as I thought". It's the same feeling that I am not good enough. But then, you see the way your kid looks at you, and it's gone. You are a mess but a wonderful, powerful mess in your kid's eyes. And then you think "well, maybe I am doing something good here". In the last month or so I have discovered the power of embrace imperfection in life and drawing. It's so liberating and priceless. Now I am more able to let go and enjoy the precious moments like this one in the drawing. #artjournal #dailysketches #tbt #12monthsofpaint #portrait #sketch #sketchdaily #beawesome #creativelife #creativelifehappylife #livecreatively #bigmagic #createeveryday #artsymornings #dibujos #ilustraciones #iamanillustrator #embraceimperfection #motherhood #motivationalart #artistsoninstagram #drawingeveryday #drawings #illustrations #mystory #beingamom #sketchbookmagic #sketchbook #watercolordrawing #watercolor 1d

imperfectly_jo Lunch is a sammie and a tangerine and morning snack is my SECOND EVER QUEST BAR WHICH WAS SO. FRICKIN. AMAZING.
(TW) I forgot how it felt to be full and guiltless. I know the feeling of bloated and guilty and hungry and comforted (TW end). I felt full and energized after my morning snack!
Update: (TW) also had six peanut butter pretzels and instant coffee which was unplanned and kind of freaking me out but pb pretzels are bomb --

I'm not having the best body image today but I'm pushing through. I hope everyone has a terrific Wednesday! --

cherryboots_doe Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn't given freely by another person it isn't worth having. When you know your worth no one can make you feel worthless

achangpt "As early as age 6, girls are aware of their body and become self conscious about being fat (2011)." The first time I became self critical of my body was age 8. I remember sitting with my hands under my thighs so that they would appear smaller.
I am passionate about cultivating a world where "beauty" is redefined. A place where young girls grow up learning to love their bodies, appreciate their imperfections and empower one another. Here's to embracing my "murves" and encouraging others to remember that you are wonderful exactly as you are. #hope #bethechange #cultivateforcurves #strong #chucks

imperfectly_jo The rest of my yogurt plus handful of chocolate chips for dessert!
For dinner my parents scolded me for not eating enough so I had to have an extra cup of soup. I appreciate their concern but I have an eating plan in mind (eg big dessert). I had a big dessert anyway haha.
Have a good night everyone!
Update: TW I just realized that I read the calories on the yogurt wrong. It was a 9 instead of a 0. I'm trying to learn to be okay with it but I feel disgusting. But it was delicious so who cares?? Worth. Every. Bite.

imperfectly_jo Lunch! Also had half a mango.
It was absolutely amazing! Now off to do homework!
My goal tomorrow is to eat a morning snack. Ever since I started gaining I keep "forgetting" to pack one but tomorrow I will definitely push myself!
