I had such a relaxing weekend! My boyfriend had to go out of town for business and I got to go with him. We stayed at a nice hotel with a spa... I relaxed in the jacuzzi, got a massage and pampered myself all weekend! It was nice to get away from everything for a weekend. We had a great time. He didn't have to work all the time so we got to spend a lot of time together while we were there.
It was a nice change. Now I feel ready for a new week!
By the way, while at the spa, I went swimming and obviously I had to wear a bathing suit. This is something I usually dread (!!) but this time I decided to just enjoy my time there and accept myself as I am. Flaws and all! And while I was there I realized just how brainwashed we women often are: we are expected to look a certain way and if we don't, we should somehow feel bad about it and try our hardest to look like the women we see in the media. God forbid we should actually accept ourselves as we are! Not everyone can - or should be! - a Victoria's Secret model. I'm trying my hardest not to buy into all that but it's really difficult since we're always being bombarded with all these images everywhere we go. I think that as long as you're healthy and happy in your own skin, size really doesn't matter! We are all unique and we're not meant to look the same! I know I still have some weight to lose before I can feel 100 % comfortable about my weight but in the meantime, I'm going to love this body I'm in. I might not be a swimsuit model but I'm me, and that's enough!
