What would you do?

Hey y’all! 

This program that I’m doing has a workbook with some exercises to help you be more confident, etc and the question I’m on today is this:

What are some things would you feel most confident doing if you were the most confident version of yourself? 

What would I do if I felt good about my body and had oodles and oodles of confidence? Hmmm…I’m not sure. Let’s think about this:

  • Wear a modest 2 piece swimsuit to the pool/beach/lake.
  • Wear skirts just above the knee instead of to my ankles (like I do now)
  • Be more adventurous in bed (wink wink)
  • Allow myself to be included in photographs more often
  • Feel better about going to my kids activities and not worrying about being the fat mom

That’s all I can think of and it took me ten minutes just to come up with those 5 things. I’m going to think on this some more – I know there are more things out there I would do if I felt better about my body and myself.

I’m curious – what’s on your list? What would you do if body image or confidence issues weren’t holding you back? I’m curious as to what your answers are! 🙂

Update on stuff

I hate it when I go too long between posts because then I feel like I have to tell you all everything that has happened and it all feels like so much work so I procrastinate and then I feel even worse because then I have even more to tell and it just goes round and round and round…

*sigh*

Let’s just dive in, shall we? 

Update: I still haven’t weighed myself. It’s been almost 6 weeks since I stepped on the scale and let me tell you, I’m feeling a little unnerved. I want to weigh myself, but then again I intuitively probably have an idea of what I might maybe weigh, so I think, “what’s the point”, but man the temptation is getting strong. Knowing the number won’t change my behavior one way or another, but NOT knowing the number is getting harder to accept. I’m still not going to weigh myself. I’M NOT. 

My kiddos are back in school and you know what’s sad? That I had to go back and re-read my last post just so I could remember what we talked about last time. Anyway, I took some of your suggestions and have been doing really well on the “what to make for dinner” front. Sunday night I asked the fam what they wanted to eat for the week and within 2 minutes’ time, I had a menu plan for the week. After work yesterday I went to the grocery store and bought all the ingredients and I am so freaking happy about the fact that I don’t have to scratch my head and THINK about what we are going to eat this week. *insert happy dance here* 

Remember in my last post I talked about a new program I was trying? Well, I’m about 2 weeks in and I really love it! It’s Step It Up With Steph’s 30 Day Jumpstart and it’s exercise, food, and MENTAL exercises all in one program. The exercise portion is cardio intervals with strength training (I freaking love working out with weights – who knew??), and the food aspect is pretty simple – eat more protein and more fresh foods, but what makes this program different is the mental aspect – it has daily exercises to increase self esteem and self-kindness. I really love this last part since lately I have been really super hard on myself about my weight lately and this seems to be helping. I feel better already and the self-bashing is a lot quieter. And guess what?! One of you will get to try the program for free!! See my next post for details on how to enter the giveaway! I don’t do very many reviews or giveaways, but I feel pretty good offering this one to you. I know a lot of you deal with the same self-esteem issues I do, so I really think this could be beneficial for anyone who wanted to try it. 

Speaking of feeling better, the weird sadness I was feeling is gone, I think due in part to the better foods I’ve been eating and the work outs I’ve been doing. All in all I’m doing pretty well right now, still lots of room for improvement, but I feel like I’m on a good path. 🙂

That’s about it for today. I hope you all are doing well, and I’ll try to start posting regularly again. Sometimes I just run out of things to say, I guess! 🙂
