This week you might have noticed a recurring breakfast (plus my latest obsession with Joy the Baker).  Yup, smoothies!  It’s getting warmer and plus I need to detox off the Nutella.  Don’t get me wrong, I love Nutella.  More than I should.  Unfortunately Nutella makes things on me wobble that shouldn’t.  It’s really quite upsetting to me.  I’ve never had a healthy body image.  I wasn’t raised to look in the mirror and think to myself “damn, I look good!”.  Quite the opposite actually.  So this week is the beginning of the lose weight over the summer and be happy with the way I look week.  Most of the time I feel ok and then every once and awhile something snaps in me and I can’t stand myself.  Two babies have not done me any good (or should I say, the way I ate when preggo with those two sweet babes).  I was skinny and happy with the way I looked...  oh to be 23 again and actually realize that I looked fantastic!  I know I’ll never get back there and I’m ok with that but I don’t want to be the size I am either.  I would be quite happy with a few inches off my waist and by few I mean 3.  That would make me really happy I think.  I just feel like I’m losing the definition between my hips and my buddha belly.  So, onward!  This is the beginning of hopefully a great journey to being happier with myself and the way I look.  I’m not sure if it’s a number I’m looking for or if it’s the way I look in the mirror.  I’m hoping I will know when I get there.  Anyways, enough of my ramblings.  Have a good week everybody and I’ll hopefully keep you updated on how my battle to feel better about myself goes.
