I have a TON on my plate right now (lots of blog stuff in progress, Etsy shop stuff I'm desperately trying to finish and I have my regular mom duties with *bonus* one puking child) so there is no vlog tonight. But to make up for it, I'm giving you unflattering pictures of me. So.. it's still a win for you.
And if my gross pedicure is any evidence of me being ridiculously busy.. well there you go. Now, my weight is up I think from 158? But I deserve it because yet AGAIN... I slacked. But seriously. I have had NO time to work out. I really haven't. I also haven't had time to freaking snack on anything so there's that too.
HERE to see what the before pictures were. Seriously. Do it.
(Did you see that website? Because if not these will look awful and you'll not understand why I'm celebrating them.)
Four months of curbing what I eat and actually exercising more has gotten me here.
THANK YOU fuckmill. (<--- it may be the only time in recorded history you'll see that so just enjoy it).
Obviously... I have a lot further to go. I'm not in some kind of bubble where I think I have an ideal body type. But this is the first time in TEN YEARS that I am feeling positive about my body image. That? Is worth more than what a scale will ever say.
So... how are you doing? If this isn't good enough for your motivational pep talk then I have failed you.
I will be back tomorrow, folks. I have a really cool project coming up for you and (hopefully) a thought provoking post for you. Then I have a really good (couple) of posts I need your help on.
1. Do you live in Alabama or in the hard hit areas from recent severe weather and tornadoes?
2. Do you know someone who fits that criteria?
Email me your photos and stories by tomorrow night to sarastrand9438(at)hotmail(dot)com. It's kind of an important thing I'm doing for a few fellow friends, so any help you think you can be... I'd appreciate it. More soon loves.
