When in doubt… play!

I was having one of those days where I look at my unchecked to-do list… I see my belly pooch and I ruffle my already unkept hair. I am under the weight of so many expectations I have for myself. One thing people always have to remind me to do is to take it easy. I never ever give myself a break. I am not a workaholic, I just have all these ideas of what should be accomplished… but it’s not done.

Some of it will get done, some of it won’t.

I am very self conscious about my slower metabolism (what I have to work out now? But all I did before was run a mile once a month and that’s it?! I can’t go to a gym!). I had the option to beat myself up more or do something. No, that something wasn’t working out. That only works on people who are more humble than I! I decided to switch out some of the artwork in my picture frames. Yes, that is considered fun for me! And then I was wondering if I should go bold and dress as Jem from Jem and the Holograms, famous 80s cartoon.

I’m not a diehard fan, I barely know about it. But after seeing the atrocious trailer for the modern day remake, I looked at the credits for the show and I could see why so many people love it. Now I want to watch the cartoon!


Despite thinking “wow, this body sucks.” I remembered I do have some face. My face seems more in my control in this very moment. The rest of my to do list may come or it may not come. We’ll see.

    So fun! I love the idea of unchecking your to do list. I’m a huge list person, but sometimes you just need to let it go for a day. You look great! Body image is such a hard thing, but you can get to where you want to be. One day at a time, right?

      Yes, I love making lots of lists though some never get completed. On Instagram someone posted a “what I did today” list and checked it off which I like. May try that!

      Thank you for the encouragement and compliment! 😀 Yes indeed. I have to practice self compassion! I worked out today and learned some tips from my bestie on healthy eating. Will see what the rest of the day brings!
