Present to Myself

Sometimes you need to gift yourself things. For me, it's being able to actually take care of myself. I am the typical mom who leaves herself out so that her family can have. Maybe it's a leftover trait from my single mom days. Those days where you starve yourself and look like a hobo just so your kids can eat and have decent clothing, as well as a shelter over their head.

It's been seven years and I'm still stuck in that mode. At this point it's probably to my detriment. Well, no more. At least not to those extremes. I have been working on doing for me. Zumba is so much fun, but will be ending soon. Then what? No, I have not emailed about those Burlesque lessons yet. I intend to soon though. I think that will be my after Zumba thing to do. I need to step up my workouts at home. Like actually have them.

Anyways, my babbling does have a point. With all this activity and better self treatment that I'm giving myself, I am down 8lbs of the total 50lbs I want to lose by the end of 2012. So I allowed myself a reward. I got a new 'do! It makes me feel sexy and want to improve myself more. Here's to feeling good about oneself and moving forward! Cheers!

  1. The new do is great. I used to teach a stress management class in college (which was pretty much a "do as I say, not as I do" course, but oh well!) and I remember one of the tips for reducing stress was to improve your appearance. I may not have gotten much out of that class, that has definitely stuck with me!
