Day 6 of 30
Day 6 of 30...
In case you’re new to whatsahappenin here... 👋🏻 I’m brooke & I’m conducting an experiment, posting real photos of my real body, every day for 30 days! Honestly, I’m hoping it helps me love my physical self again. See, I’m over 50lbs heavier than the size I spent most of my life at, and I recently realized it’s made me hide for too long, and I’m sick and tired of doing so. I hope this project and this very real, daily check in with this body that carries me through life, will bring more playfulness and wonder to my new year!!
Day 6 musings:
>> Spent my day cleaning today - my energy was still low and wasn’t suited for much to else
>> Having a clean home brings me sooo much joy and peace
>> I can’t believe I’ve been creating these photos for nearly a week now
>>Again, I’m finding lighting and self portrait technique more frustrating than sharing these half naked photos - this continues to surprise me
>> I was wearing warm, fuzzy, grey socks while taking these photos
>> To bring on energy and happiness for these photos I dance around like a real goon
>> I feel sexy and fun tonight
>> I’ve realized how much I love eyeliner - it had been a while since I enjoyed a makeup routine
>> I’ve realized my days start more confidently if I do my hair first thing (this is rare for me - and I noticed because I felt like a frumpy old grandma when I went out for dinner earlier, my hair was in a sloppy low bun.. the I came home, ran a brush and straightener through it for photos an voila, feeling fine!)
>> I’m packing for a month in Florida and am wondering if, and hoping, I can bring the same courage to the in person events I’ll be at that I’m able to exercise here
>> That’s all, I’m snuggling into bed between Wilhelm and my orange kitty, Milo 😚
