For those of you who don't follow country music, there is a song called, "Man, I feel like a woman" from the beautiful singer Shania Twain. LOVE HER!!
Well, in this song she sings about the many great reasons why it is so wonderfrul to be a woman. It's all about feeling free, wearing short skirts, and mens shirts. And, I might add that she looks fantastic in this video. Actually, Shania has looked fantastic in her entire career. Here is a picture of her singing the song at a conce. Doesn't her body look fanastic??
So, where am I going with this? Well, ever since I started gaining weight, I haven't been in touch with my girly side. I maybe have shaved my legs once this whole summer. I just ended up wearing pants and it is super hot in 100 degree weather. I just didn't feel feminine and so I didn't do it. I have a pretty understanding husband. LOL.
I haven't gotten my nails done since Mothers Day. That was my present. I hardly get to go shopping alone because of the kids. I usually don't wear jewelry....well, you get it. The list could go on and on.
Well, last night I actually shaved my legs. Well, at least the bottom from the knee down. I want to start being more feminine and wearing skirts to work. It is just going to have to take some time. I know what you are thinking. Gross! She doesn't shave her legs? Well, I just didn't feel like a woman. My hormones are totally out of wack from gaining weight. I didn't really have the feminine curves. I looked like just one big mass.
From now on, I will treat myself better and do nice things for myself.
Confession: I slept in a little this morning. About 10 minutes or so. I am still on schedule though, so it's all good!
Cheer: I took up the challenge that Syl at Live, Smile, Run sent out to do the 30 day shred. It doesn't start until September 1, so there is still time. You should sign up too!! Also, we have had a chocolate cake in the house for a few days now (hubby bought it) and I have only had one small slice!! Usually I would have had it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!!
