We’ve hit double digits, y’all! Hailey is 10 months old now, which among other things, means I need to start thinking about her first birthday party! Say whaaaaaa??
I’ll get to it, but today I’m focused on another post baby body update: the 10 month version.
I started preparing for this post like any other post baby body update, assembling the camera and tripod in our bedroom to take my body shots. (PS- can I tell you that I’ve had more than a few odd looks when people see our room and discover a tripod set up beside the bed because I’m too lazy to put it up? It’s not what you think, people!)
Snap, snap, snap. Koda looked at me with a disgust, as only a vizsla can, while I ran back and forth snapping self-timed photos.
She seemed to say ‘You’re doing this again?’ Why?’ I don’t blame her; I’m not sure why I’m doing another update either. I don’t look any different. My measurements are almost identical to last month, minus my weight reading 112.5 instead of 112, but on a scale that only measures weight by the half pound, it hardly counts.
I think I’ve reached my body’s happy place. I define this as the place where my body comfortably settles into when I eat well and move, but still leave room for treats (hello Tostitos and Jack’s fresh Salsa!).
I’m still up for challenging myself (and I will in Tina’s new round of bootcamp- registration open until Friday if you want to join in!). However, I don’t really feel the need to track my physical post baby progress in such minute detail.
Now, when I look in the mirror, I see this:
So, if only for a day, I challenge you to look in the mirror and say I’m good enough, smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like me!
…but do take a minute and give yourself credit for one thing that your magnificent body allows you to do today. Yes, your body, the way it is at this very moment. A little self love and appreciation is important and at the risk of sounding like a cheese ball, you’re worth it.
So what do you appreciate about your awesome body?
PS- You have until tonight at 9pm to GO BANANAS for Yonanas
