Day 18 of 30
Day 18 of 30
I weigh 50+ lbs more than I did when I married my sweetheart 5 years ago… I’ve spent too much time letting the weight hold me back. So, my January experiment is to show up every day for 30 days & share a real photo of my real body! I have no expectations, I’m just here to see what happens…
🌻 My hiding and discomfort with my body isn’t exclusive to when I’m in a bikini or in my underwear… over the last few years the self-hate has flared up when I try on shorts or sleeveless tops, too.
🌻 Today, I’m rocking a romper I love but recently stopped wearing as it showed my thighs… I feel pretty great in it!
🌻 Last night I was asked to be a speaker at a summit… under the category of CONFIDENCE! I’m so stoked… and I’m truly considering doing my talk (it’s a video I’ll record ahead of time) while sitting in a bikini, belly rolls and all!
🌻 I’ve already had invitations come up that I’ve said yes to more readily thanks to this experiment - dinner the other night, I would usually have fretted over who was going, if they were my brother in laws 21 year old gorgeous blonde friends, then I would have fussed with what I’d wear, been anxious and showed up late. Instead, I said “sure!”, showed up with a smile, hung out with my brother in laws, made a new friend, took a tequila shot and downed a few delicious tacos. No fret, no fuss, just fun!
🌻 I’m loving being in Florida right now, in between work projects Wilhelm and I get up and take walks, getting fresh air, movement and sunshine - it’s amazing!
🌻 Not being at home makes my daily photos just a little more difficult, but having Wilhelm take them has taken a ton off me!!
🌻 I’m feeling fun, fearless, productive and quite frankly, like a badass this month. Everything ISN’T perfect, but most of what I can control, is pretty great and I’m proud of how I’m fully showing up in my own life right now.
🌻 If you’re still reading this, what’s something you’re doing today that your future self will thank you for?
