I took this wake up call as an opportunity to go through my stored pre-pregnancy clothes only to realize that I didn't have any pre-pregnancy summer clothes left. In all honesty I probably packed them up two summers ago and dropped them off at Good Will realizing I would be pregnant the next summer (we were trying to get pregnant) and come the summer following that I wouldn't like any of them anymore (or deep down inside I realized they probably wouldn't fit right). And, if I'm really honest with myself, it doesn't matter that I don't have any summer clothes packed away because they probably wouldn't fit anymore because despite the fact that my baby is ten months old, my body insists on hanging onto the last 5-10 pounds of pregnancy weight gain....
And this leads me to the next sad conclusion I myself came to this past weekend: I'm too squishy in places that shouldn't be that squishy, and I'm in desperate need of a healthier diet and more regular exercise.
Keeping all of this in mind, I've decided that it is time to make some summer goals. I think I'll start here:
- Walk the dog everyday (regular exercise people!!!)
- Exercise 5 days a week (this is ON TOP of walking the dog!)
- Eat a healthy breakfast every morning (I like to skip and binge at lunch...oops)
And yes, I'm well aware of the fact that none of this solves the fact that I'm a candidate for "What Not to Wear" right now because I'm not giving up my maternity clothes yet (I can't go naked, people, and money is a factor here...if you're overly concerned about my frumpy wardrobe feel free to nominate me for the show...(do they even still make that show?)) I do, however, promise to good will them all at the end of July and buy new clothes (preferably in smaller sizes...)
P.S. I considered taking pictures of my closet and favorite dresser drawer (you know, the one with all the tank tops and stretchy pants), but it was too depressing...and I didn't want to upset
