Reflecting on the First Month

Sorry I haven't posted much this week. Instead of blabbing about a bunch of lame excuses, I'll just say this...I didn't feel like it. Again...that's a lot of my problem, not feeling like doing anything. I'm my own worst enemy it seems...

I just wanted to let you know that I'm still here and we are nearing the one month mark for this blog. I will confess that I am not out of sahmbie mode quite yet...not even close. I still don't have the momentum I need to move forward the way I would like. Seeing the new Spring fashions at the mall gave me a little nudge, but it didn't give me that push that I need to really get moving. But I think this feeling of frustration with myself will be the driving force that makes me get off my rear and do this already. I'm really getting tired of talking about it...enough talking already Ang. Get up and do something!

But on a positive note, I have made some measurable changes the past few weeks that are a step in the right direction. I AM brushing my teeth, I AM getting dressed, I AM combing my hair and I AM washing my face and putting on lip balm pretty much every day. I WANT to do it. It feels soooo good to wash and moisturize my face in the morning that if I don't do it, I miss it. So, I'm on the right track. Yay for personal hygiene! LOL

One thing I want to do tomorrow is go out and get some decently attractive clothes to wear around the house so I don't feel like a slob all day and my husband doesn't have to come home to a frumpy hag. You may not agree with me, but I don't consider changing from your bath robe to an old, faded pair of sweatpants and a stretched out, faded and stained t-shirt getting dressed in the morning. Unfortunately for a lot of sahms, this is THE unofficial uniform. It is for me at least. I think we (I) can do better. But sadly, this is all I have. I either have a lot of nice dress clothes or a lot of really crappy old clothes that one should only be wearing when they're sick in bed looking like death warmed over. That's the only occasion appropriate for most of my "casual" clothes. So, I'm going to put those aside for when I start working out, and go out and try to find some reasonably priced casual shirts and pants. And Lord knows I need some jeans that fit! I'm not sure what Lane Bryant did to their jeans since they changed all the sizing and whatnot, but I can't find a single pair that fit right. I have two pair of dark washed jeans and both of them are falling off of me. I can stick my whole arm down the back of my pants they're so big! But if I try on a size smaller, they don't fit. I'm not sure what's up with that, but I need some jeans! Or, I need to lose 20 lbs so I can fit into some of my smaller jeans. That sounds like a plan and a goal for February!

So anyway, that's what's on my mind tonight. I'll be back this week in full force. A lot of good things are happenin' and I'm jumping into some new endeavors, so stay tuned!

We're blasting out of sahmbie mode in February!!!!

Good for you Angie! Keep your chin up! I bought myslef some "nice" velour sweat suits to wear, they are comfortable and look somewhat decent. I don't dress up everday but I make it a point to jump in the shower quick each morning, it helps me get motivated, and I put on my sweatsuit and I am ready to go! There is nothing wrong with being comfortable!

Have fun shopping. Maybe just a few new casual clothes will give you that extra bounce in your step.

Can you believe it's already been almost a month?? Yikes...where did January go?
