I think it will be fun. We're dressing the baby as Doc McStuffins and we're all wearing scrubs as her nurses. <BR> <BR> Statement of Purpose: I eat clean and work out hard to feel and look good. <BR> <BR> Looking in the mirror I feel like a hot mess.

I'm going to make a dream board. <BR> <BR> I haven't really looked at myself in the mirror today. I forgot my makeup. Eek! <BR> <BR> My hair was braided and ended in bantu knots but still didn't turn into anything that I'd want to wear down, so it is in a puff today. Again. It's going to rain. Again. <BR> <BR> <BR> I'm comfortably wearing size 18/20 and 2X shirts and 16W/18/18W pants...

I was tired of almonds and so I picked up walnuts and I'm absolutely in love wit those wrinkly little morsels of yum. I'm still working on this clean eating/healthful meal planning thing, so it really is the little things for me right now. Want to look over my shoulder? Check out my nutrition log. <BR> <BR> Statement of Purpose: I eat clean and work out hard because evidently I don't remember how good my body is designed to feel.

I read a quote the other day that said, "Imagine where you would be if you didn't have to keep starting over again." I know the key to success is never giving up and starting again when you fail, but I'm thinking another key to success is consistency and working hard to not have to start all over again. I'm going to meditate on that and make it my reality. <BR> <BR> Statement of Purpose: I eat clean and work out hard because I like looking good in my clothes and I love clearance r...

I'm vain, okay? <BR> <BR> I look at myself in the mirror and think I'm really freaking cute, LOL! <BR> <BR> My hair is pulled up into a high puff. It is rainy here today and I can't even begin to deal with what water and humidity do to my curls in a down and out hairdo.

I binged from then until last night and I didn't work out because I started school again. My new job is emotional and time consuming even though I enjoy it. I've been working long hours to decorate my new office after two moves and to stay on top of the paperwork and other tasks. I've been out of control and avoiding...

They're cheaper and easier to find. <BR> <BR> Today's workout plan: Beach swimming, beach ball volleyball, horseshoes? <BR> <BR> I look at myself in the mirror and see stretch marks on my belly. I earned them having my daughter. My belly is where most of my fat is being stored right now so I need to think about that when I'm choosing things to eat. <BR> <BR> My hair was tangled and dry so I d...

I'm tired of having a skirt of skin around my belly. <BR> <BR> Today's Workout Plan: walking and beach swimming. <BR> <BR> I try on clothes that are too small for me, get mad, put them in a bag for storage and vow to myself that I will fit back into my clothes once again. <BR> <BR> Today I'm wearing pajamas. I'll change soon. <BR> <BR> I slept well and woke up to my phone ringing too ...

There's enough trying to tear me down without me being a willing participant in the destruction. <BR> <BR> Today's Workout Plan: Upper body and walk to run. <BR> <BR> I look at myself and see my big belly. I've gained a lot in my mid-section. That means I need to literally and figuratively tighten up and do what I'm supposed to. <BR> <BR> T...
