Weekend Reinforcement!

Saturday, June 02, 2012

Today is my Friday, its probably your let's take a minute to re-group, catch our breaths and not allow the weekend to destroy our diets. I came across this short but sweet article on controlling your diet on the weekends, I'm sharing it with you.

Weekends can almost be scary for some of us. And who wants to cringe when they think about that fun BBQ they have been invited to? Certainly not me. I'm working hard at taking a different approach.

No more will I hide my body at BBQ's with hefty cloth pants and stretchy tops because I'm embarrassed by my size. Sorry people, I am fricking gorgeous and fabulous right now and I am tired of feeling hot and gross because I want to keep you from staring at my bigger than average baseball player chub legs. I highly doubt you were looking anyways! The other day I strutted my stuff to the pool in just a bathing suit (gasp!) instead of wrapping a towel around me or wearing a bulky skirt. And you know what, there were men everywhere on that short walk. They were on the roof of our apartment complex trimming tree's and cleaning the gutters, I didn't care and they looked at me several times. Probably thought I was fine as hell. And I felt great just being me.

A week ago I made a big decision to just go back to me, to be the girl I always loved to be. Life is so damn short and I am so tired of feeling anxious, worried, fearful and unloved...the buck stopped with me and its been very empowering. Life is beautiful don't ya know?

I'm feeling pretty good about progress this weekend! I do need to pick up the exercise pace. The last couple of days I kind of dropped the ball on that one and I'm feeling sore. Its that sore feeling you get when your body just wants to move. I'm at work today but its going to be a long and peaceful day, one filled with many walks. Even if its just a quick 10 minutes, it is going to be awesome and I will get in as many as those walks as I can.

Whomever reads this, I hope you know you are an amazing person and that no one can take that away from you. Express yourself, be yourself and love yourself.

    Feels great to turn heads. I recall that feeling. You'll never be younger than you are right now. LOVE SEEING YOUR PROGRESS! I was really concerned about you when I befriended you. Now you are inspiring me!

    Might want to try stretching to help with soreness?
