S02E08 of Breaking Bad was really really good. I’m just getting around to watching this series.
I wish Chex Mix didn’t have pretzels. I have such a passionate distaste for pretzels.
A guy is visting us for a week from London. I can’t help but feel like he brought over Ebola.
And i’ve already dropped 6lbs. I’m crying :( my dentist just laughed.
I underatand why people choose to pull all their wisdoms at once.
Basically we decided to revamp a lot of appliances at home and I bought a ton of awesome toys and goodies. :)
Bella 5-Quart Programable Slow Cooker - I’ve always wanted a crock pot so I could make things like chipotle bowls!! I kind of put it off because I didn’t know anything about them. Macy’s was having a Labor Day weekend sale and I picked up this baby for $20 (originally $40). What a snag! I haven’t played around with it yet but I’m excited to.
Breville Juicer - Holy shit we got a JUICER! I’ve also always been interested in trying juicing for its benefits, especially juicing greens. Though this juicer isn’t really optimal for juicing greens it does fruit like a beast. I’ve already tested a carrot-celery-spinach-apple juice and it was amazeballs.
We also got a new toaster, new washing and dryer machines, and we’re still looking for a duo drip coffee/espresso machine. So excited for those!
Uhhh some beauty prodcuts I bought:
Absolute LOVE lip balms - These things were so adorable I had to pick them up. I’m super picky with my balms and these feel great.
Supreme Cream Body Butter - I needed a new moisturizer so I picked this up. I like the clean scent, but you probably won’t. haha. It does the job though.
MOA Curl Vitalizer - Literally the holy grail of my hair routine. I’m so happy I discovered this stuff months ago. My first bottle ran out so I bought 2 new ones. Best purchase ever.
I bought a Ramekin and a 1 liter pyrex to help me get more green tea into my diet. My last pitcher wasn’t really working out for me. So uhhh yeah. That’s it :)
PS: Miss you guys. I’ve kinda stopped having a reason to blog and have been busy. But with these new toys I think you might be seeing more of me. ;)
Ask me about the bad day I had :(
I just got home from camp.
Indeed, it’s hard to have both when you’re starting out and this is okay. Body acceptance and confidence is a process. You can’t just flip a switch and BAM you have it, but you can certainly fake it.
I think as you continue to lose weight and learn how much your fitness and health has improved that you begin to appreciate your body more. When you fit into new, smaller clothes, you start to notice how much cuter you look that you wouldn’t have before even if you’re not at your goal size. The more you spend time really taking care of yourself and doing good things for your body that’s how you learn to love yourself. You don’t resort to crash diets or crazy things just to get skinny. You aid your body in a positive way.
Do things that make you feel hot and sexy. Do your hair, your makeup, wear stylish clothing. Being bigger doesn’t mean you have to look frumpy. And when you feel like you look frumpy on the outside, you will feel extra frumpy on the inside.
Also being surrounded by positive people and supportive friends helps a lot to boost confidence. Definitely hang around the kind of people who will acknowledge your journey and encourage you and remind you of how great of a person you are despite your personal struggles with body image.
