|Striking my best pose in my shirt dress and green pumps.|
I had an moment this morning in the shower. I am tired of being unhappy and depressed. So I decided I am doing something about it. I put on a black shirt dress (that looks awesome on me) and some cute green pumps. And I strutted my stuff today. For the first time in weeks, I didn't feel frumpy or down on how I looked. In fact, I thought I look damn good.
I am tired of being stressed about my job. I am tired of self-defeating thoughts about my appearance and weight gain. And I am tired of being tired. It ends today. Today, I took back my life. From this moment on things will be done my terms. If the head honcho comes in May and decides my job is cut, I will shed some tears and pack up my things. But it will be because of budget and not because of job performance. I am a damn good reporter. I work hard to cover my huge beat.
There will be no more waddling in self pity on my couch. For the last few days, I have been putting on my headphones and heading the pavement. The same goes with ordering fast food and eating out. I have gain some weight. This is a good thing but I would like to get back into shape. This means walking, cooking healthy meals and drinking more water. I haven't had an orange soda in a week. Moderation is the key. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired so I am doing something about it.
And I will document my progress including my cute outfits.
I don't want to be negative and unhappy anymore. It's time to let the sunshine in. Score Me--1 and ED--0!!
|I love these shoes!!|
1. My cute green shoes. I felt like a million bucks.
2. Not cringing at photos of myself. I have to remember baby steps.
3. Seeing a recipe in a cookbook and making it instead of dreaming about it.
