Recap of yesterday:
Yesterday was a rough day. I have to admit that I was having some issues holding my head up high and continuing on. All I felt like doing was throwing on my fat jeans and a t-shirt and calling it a day. It took me a LONG time to find that outfit that I finally settled on – everything made me feel unattractive and gross yesterday. It really was a test of my mindset. It was an interesting lesson in the real impact of all that I am doing. I realized that my struggle in the morning to get dressed in something I felt “pretty” in set the tone for my day. It was hard to snap out of the funk once it started. I felt a lot like how I did before starting all this in the first place, and I didn’t like it!
After a meeting yesterday morning, though, the mood changed. I went to the mall to find a pair of jeans (I only have one pair that I like, and I think that was adding to my rut). I spent about an hour in the Gap with a fantastic sales clerk who patiently brought my pair after pair. Finally, I found a pair that I not only like, but LOVE. (FYI, They are the Gap Curvy 1969 in a mid-wash….just in case you’re curious.) It turned my afternoon around, and just that one pair of jeans – and feeling good in them – did the trick.
But, enough about yesterday. Let’s move on to today!
