It’s been a few days since I posted, and I need to get it together lol. But I am here now, and I promise this week is gonna be a fun week on my blog. OK…so onto business.
Have you ever looked in the mirror at yourself, or caught your reflection in some kind of surface and thought…”damn I’m sexy”? Well as of lately I can admit that I haven’t. I am extremely uncomfortable with how I look ever since I had my little love lump. Now I know that the body changes, and you get can get back to where you were with work, but I honestly feel like it hasn’t happened. And to make matter worse my son is now 18 months old…which means my snap-back should have been happened. Let me give you a little background as to why I’m feeling un-sexy.
Before I had my little dude, I was a dance teacher. I taught jazz, hip-hop, and the occasional ballet technique class when needed. Because of this I was in some great shape. My legs were toned, my tummy was flat, and everything was nice and tight. And I use to complain about that body. *shakes head and rolls eyes* Now that I’ve had a kid, I can’t even remember that body, without pics. I feel like I don’t even know myself anymore. There are parts of me that rub or jiggle that I didn’t even know could do that prior to having a baby lol. I need to get my entire life back together lol.
Now I’m sure your thinking “just workout/diet.” And to that I say “no sh*t.” I’ve been doing that, and it hasn’t been working…according to me. If you ask a family member or a close friend of mine (and maybe my husband but he lives with me so he probably doesn’t even notice) they save I have slimmed down. But I need to be able to see it, not everyone else. So far I have lost almost ten lbs, according to the scale, but in my eyes I don’t look or feel like it. I admit that I could exercise more, but making time to do that after working all day and having to take care of a little human. And as for dieting…I like food…and for some reason having to restrict myself from it makes me want it even more. But I am gonna get serious about getting my body back starting TODAY.
I have decided that I am going to do a low-carb diet, which means im giving up bread pasta and rice. All things of which I am madly in love with. I am also going to start doing an at home workout everyday. Now the workout that I’m going to do, one of my best friends (who is a mom of 2) found. It’s a workout just for moms. This will help me because yes I’m a mom, but im also a c-section mama…and it caters to that as well. There are certain things I physically can’t do yet when it comes to ab routines, and this workout acknowledges that. It is a 4 minute workout, and I plan on doing everyday, as well as a postpartum workout that is 30 minutes. That I will be doing twice a week. I use to pole dance for exercise, but since having my little dude, there is nowhere to put my pole. So until we buy a bigger house I wont be able to do that again, which sux.
So yea…mission “get my sexy back” is in full effect. Hopefully it all works out and I get back to feeling and looking like me. And if im being honest….I just wanna look and feel good naked again. lol. I’m somewhat of an exhibitionist, and i don’t feel the same walking around my house in the nude as I use to. I swear there is extra sh*t happening whenever I move lmao. THIS MUST STOP! I’ll be sure to keep you guys updated on my progress, and all the woes I’m inevitably gonna have with this. Oh and my husband is doing this with me…so I know that I’ll have plenty to report lmao.
What is your sexy, and is it the kind of sexy you want and like? Feel free to explain in the comments below.
