So, I'm Sierra. I'm 29. I have two girls, two and three years. I was married in a size 26 wedding dress. I'm down to a size 14/16. I want to be about half the size I currently am. Not because I lack confidence or because I feel bad about myself. Because I deserve to look in the mirror and think "Damn, I did it." and my kids deserve to have the cool, pretty mom. Not the slobby, lazy, gross mom I feel like I will be if I keep down this road. My husband deserves an attractive wife. He's a pretty hot dude. Sometimes I wonder how I landed him.
I recently became a stay at home mom and it's definitely led to some big opportunities for me. I actually have time to exercise now. I get to do fun projects with my girls every day, I get to DIY everything and anything I want, and I get to dance to bad 80's music and 90's dubstep remixes. I get to dance and sing as loudly as my little ears can handle, and I get to show my kids what real playing is. Don't get me wrong, when it was D's turn to be the stay at home parent, he did well. He made sure they ate right and he taught them all the things they should know at their age and then some. He just wasn't big on the physically playing with them part.
It's pretty awesome, though. I'm lucky enough to live near a really nice river walk and there are great parks in every direction. I'm feeling motivated. I'm feeling energetic. Hopeful.
This is going to be good.
