|my sexy husband and me|
Happy Valentine's Day readers! Today is the day set aside to celebrate love. I am lucky enough to have an amazing and supportive husband and two beautiful little girls. More than enough reasons to celebrate, right? They are my world. Well, this Valentine's Day I have someone else to celebrate as well. This someone has become more special to me of late and is someone I am really getting to know all over again. This year I celebrate me!
I have started to see changes in myself, both physically and mentally, as I work through my resolutions. My husband mentioned one of the meals I made again the other day, and I could feel a swell of pride in knowing how much he enjoyed. And last night I got to work on a batch of chocolate chip cookies for my oldest daughters bake sale at school and caught myself dancing around the kitchen while I prepped the ingredients. This is the fun and confident girl my husband fell in love with eleven years ago...she is starting to really shine.
I have also caught myself checking out my silhouette in the mirror after a shower. I am not a big girl. I know that, but as someone who is BARELY 5'2" tall, every pound makes a difference. I want to be in shape and tone. The enemy I have been fighting since high school has been my thighs, or more specifically the cellulite on my thighs. I am proud to say that since I strated really tracking my calories and incorporated regular workouts (and I think the BIG helper is the Pilates) I have seen a noticeable difference in my thighs. The cellulite seems to be vanishing. It's amazing.
Happy Valentine's Day me! Happy Valentine's Day You!
Find time to love yourself! You deserve it!
