I never thought I would be one to rock the skinny pants (not skin-tight skinny, mind you). Yet I find that when I wear my slim pants and a cute top and some wedges, I walk a little taller and maybe add a touch of sashay!
Crazy, right? I strut my face off and feel good about my curves. I haven't really lost any major lbs. lately, but I have been adding quite a bit of ab work to my routine and I am finding that even if my tummy isn't flat--- but it isn't getting in the way of my daily tasks, I am starting to feel good in my skin. I haven't cracked the secret as to how to feel that way all the time- when I do, I promise to share!
But in the meantime, I am going to stick to the plan. Just do better every day. And so far, it is helping! It may not be whittling my waistline or toning my thighs at a breakneck speed, but it is reshaping my brain and I think that is the biggest barrier we all face in this world of stick figure models. I will never be skinny and I don't really want to be. I want to be healthy. And hot. I'd love to be hot!
Truthfully, it isn't every day I feel this way, but when I do, I have made a conscious decision to revel in it. Sock it all in! I am not going to love myself and my shape every day. I know this. But on the days that I do- LOOK OUT! Oh yeah, that's me pretending walking up my driveway is the equivalent to walking a catwalk. What of it??
