I had planned for this summer to be the summer that I bought a bathing suit in a smaller size. That I walked the track with my brother and didn’t get winded. That I did it finally! It wasn’t, not even a little bit. Well that’s not entirely true. I did do some things that I hadn’t planned on nor were they things I would have done in the past.
I did purchase a new one but I had to go up a size. However I am in one of those weird half sizes so going up meant I had to get it adjusted a little to fit. So this was a complete failure. Yet, I felt more confident in this swimsuit than I have in all of the past ones. So maybe that is something to take away from it. Maybe it’s not so much about going up or down a size as it’s about feeling good about myself.
I didn’t get to give this a try this year thanks to Covid-19. We didn’t want to get out there where a bunch of people were so I don’t know if I would have managed to walk it without being winded. I think I may have done better this year than in years past but not as well as I would have hoped. It is something that I will have to wait until next year (fingers crossed) to find out.
Shorts & Dresses
Every year I tell myself I am going to buy a sundress and a little pair of shorts to wear. Every year I convince myself I am too fat for that. This year not only did I buy both of those but I actually wore them as well. I don’t think I looked to bad either. I will admit that I wore a girdle under the sun dress to smooth out all of the lines and fat rolls. I’m just being honest, I don’t go anywhere without that baby on if I need it.
I hate doing it and at home I have someone I pay to come and do it. Yet, when I was at my brother’s I took the time to not only help him but to also help clean a trail. It was hot and I got sweat in places I don’t thin you should get it but I can honestly say I feel as though I have accomplish something monumental. Like I climbed a mountain or something. Will this lead to yard work getting done at my home? I don’t know but it is certainly a start for me.
