Busy weekend + Not the best food choices = Sweat it out! . Nothing like a 40 minute cardio session to kick start my Sunday! . Now to hit the road for a Bridal Shower followed by Birthday BBQ celebrations!
Today, we play. I woke up at 6am to measure and plan for the next phase of my porch renovation (new deck skirting). I wrote out my Menards list, sketched the design, and made a cut-list... all with the intention of moving forward today. Then sometime during my second cup of coffee, I decided that there was no need to rush, to put myself or the kids through yet another Menards trip, to cut and stain and sweat through another day of grueling work. Instead, the kids and I are water bound. Maybe the beach, maybe the pool, maybe both. It wont be relaxing (the 4 to 1 ratio doesnt allow for it) and there will still be sweat (the 93 degree forecast will ensure that), but with any luck there will be some fun. Today calls for a taste of summer. 😍 Join me? #noworkallplay#summerfun#daywithmom#boymom#raisingboys#lifewithboys
So, I know Im going to hate myself in the morning for posting this. Maybe Ive had a little too many glasses of wine tonight, cause on a normal day, Id never reveal this insecurity to the public. So, one thing thats changed since my weight loss is the amount of pictures I take of myself. Naturally, youd think my confidence level has grown and of course I want to memorialize it in photos, but a good percentage of the photos dont get posted anywhere for anyone else to see. The reason why? Well, its because of these crazy mom love handles!!! How is it that Ive lost all this weight and slimmed down to better shape then I ever would have dreamed, but still have this ridiculous access skin?! Im well aware that we are always much more critical of own selves, and perhaps you dont see it but I do and I know this is not a problem I had prebaby. Do I give up or do I keep trying to recreate prebaby body? My insecurities tell me I will never succeed, but my heart and determination hopes for the best. Ill continue this #getfit#journey and see where it takes me.
