Love Something About You

Untitled

My hair doesn’t say much about me. I like it short because it’s easier to maintain. I hate it short because it gets in my face. I like it long because it gets curlier. I hate it long because it gives me headaches when it’s up. It’s thick, even with bald spots caused by trichotillomania. Sometimes you have to love your hair

I Felt Pretty

Untitled
I’ve never been known for my self-confidence. As I’ve gotten older, my skin has decided that now it wants to have the breakouts. It’s insane.

But today, I took some time and actually put on make-up, taking extra care on covering up the problem areas. I even filled in the brows.

Products I used:

It’s not the makeup though, that made me feel pretty. It was the confidence in myself, knowing I was doing it for myself, not because I had to.

I Feel Good

Now that's a confidence booster.

I had to take some time off of working out. I really overdid it with my knee last weekend, and since then, it’s almost like having carpal tunnel in my knee. That’s how it felt. Straight, I’d have shooting pains up and down it, from my ankle to underneath my patella. When it’s bent, it was the tendons on the back of my knee. I guess I took WAY too many steps, and that’s what caused it.

But, I’m still seeing a major difference in the shape of myself. The above set of pictures shows it. The big one is how the world would see me. the top right is relaxed stomach. I can still see a little fluff but I can also see the definition that is starting. The bottom right is the sucked-in, the way I stand normally. The definition isn’t amazing and perfect, but there’s more there than when I was 90lbs before I got pregnant with Madison.

I actually weigh pretty close to what I started at (that lovely time of the month, so a lot of excess water weight), but I feel better than I usually do during that time. I’m amazed at how well things are going. So, while this week has been about recuperating with my knee, I’m excited to get back into it. I’m hoping, when we upgrade phones, that I’ll be able to go for runs and things while the kids are in school as well.
