It's not so bad afterall…

Ok, so I am a little late getting this out today. I actually weighed myself yesterday because I am all over the place for the next few days. I am only down a half pound, but I am ok with that. I was not eating from the meal plan for a few days, so yeah, I am not surprised.
I will say though that I went shopping today only to discover that I am liking how I can now wear smaller tops, and I am not so afraid to look in the mirror. Actually, I rather like the girl who stared back at me. I kinda felt proud. I think I have also decided that the track suits have to go. They are not flattering, and well I need to update my image a bit. I try to dress up a bit for work from time to time, but some days I am just too tired to make the effort. I am not trying to sound vain or say that we need to make ourselves up or anything, but today I spent a few extra moments getting ready. I wore clothing that was a little more flattering, and I actually felt more confident.
The point of Fit and Fabulicious for me extends beyond me losing weight. For me, it is about being comfortable in my skin. If I am not proud of who I am now, how can I carry a confidence in myself that I do not have? I have gotten into a rut. I blame it on being a busy mommy.
I have been getting up earlier and going to bed earlier. It is a start. Now I have more time to relax in the morning, exercise, and take a few moments for myself. It is great!
Ok, so maybe I rambled today a bit. Today’s point is that even though I did not lose tons of weight this week, I am becoming more proud of who I am and what I see in the mirror. She is definitely kinda cool!

    I need to do this too. I have a meal plan I’m trying to stick too, and I keep telling myself I have to run on our treadmill, then I get to reading blogs and pretty soon that window of time I left myself to do this has disappeared…..and I did it to myself. Good for you for liking who you see in the mirror, I’m trying to be better at that, this post baby body….just well….isn’t the same.

      I know how that goes. There are a lot of blogs I like to read. One thing that I have found that works for me is saving them for certain days of the week. For me, it is Wednesday and Sunday. It gives me something to look forward to 🙂
      As for post baby body, a good friend of mine and I had this conversation earlier today. We were talking about how certain parts, like our tummies, look different. For me, it has bothered me a lot in the past because I was very self-conscious when I was a teen and worked out a lot to keep my body what it was. I will say, however, that my kids are some of the greatest compliment givers. They both tell me that I am so pretty. It means a lot!
