Music Feeds My Soul – Do You Like You?

Video

I just heard this song today and I absolutely love it! Colbie Caillat is such a beautiful person inside and out. I think this song sends a great message to women everywhere.

I myself am victim of feeling the need to conform to societies image of the “perfect” woman in so many ways. It’s sad that our daughters, sisters, friends and so on are growing up thinking that they have to look a certain way to be beautiful. There is so much more to life than physical appearance. I really love this video and the message that it delivers.

I hope that my daughter grows up knowing that she is beautiful inside and out whether she is fresh-faced or made up. It’s really what is on the inside that matters most.

Operation Get Fit – The Harsh Reality

Operation Get Fit - The Harsh Reality

This morning I stood contemplating whether I should step on the scale or not. Three tiny little numbers were about to show me my harsh reality. Do I actually want to know? Can I really make a change? Such a silly little thing to get so anxious about.

After I psyched myself up I stood on that scale and embraced the numbers it unveiled. Three tiny little numbers strung together that showed me the highest weight I have ever been in my life. To be honest I am so shocked that I can’t even share these depressing little numbers in this post, maybe some day. Hopefully after seeing some results!

As upsetting as it is to see how much I weigh, I’m trying to use it as motivation to succeed. I know I don’t want to gain any more weight. I want to be more energetic and active. It would be nice to work myself up to jogging. That way I could play tag and run around with my kiddos for longer.

For this week I am setting little goals:

  • Decreasing my portion sizes
  • Eliminating fast food
  • Walking with the kiddos at least three nights

Friends and family tell me that I don’t look as big as what I am but I don’t want to feel as big as what I am. It’s lovely to hear that you are a pretty girl but you have to believe it. Any weight loss tips are welcome! I know it’s going to be a long journey but well worth it.
