Good morning! 😎
After yesterday’s eating debacle, I started my morning with a more “balanced” breakfast: one egg over easy with melted cheddar on two pieces of toasted Ezekiel bread and half of an apple on the side.
The meal was very satisfying and didn’t leave me craving something else… like cake, for instance.
I also drank some Birthday Cake iced coffee with soy milk with breakfast. (There may or may not be an awesome coffee promo next week on CNC in honor of someone’s 30th birthday! 😉 )
Bathing Suit Body Confidence
So, I haven’t worn a bathing suit in almost 2 years. Not because I don’t want to, but because I haven’t had a chance. The weather was terrible in Boston last summer, so there was no reason to wear one. (Some people, like my husband, say we had nice weather last summer, but if you worked in an office from 9-5, Monday – Friday, there was zero bathing suit-worthy weather on the weekends. Worst summer ever. 😕 ) The winter, of course, didn’t provide any options to get into a bathing suit either.
So, now I am gearing-up to wear a bathing suit (for the first time in 2 years) this coming weekend. I’m not necessarily looking forward to it, but I’m not dreading it either. Since January, I’ve been toning up and staying in shape, so I feel pretty good about myself, but I’ve never been the type of person to who is totally confident wearing a bathing suit. (I guess living in a place that only sees “bathing suit weather” for 3 months out of the year makes it tough, too.) I act like I feel good in a bathing suit, but I’m always reluctant to strip down. The idea of “fake it to ya make it” usually works for me, but I still feel the need to cover up. I’m sure I’m not alone in this feeling.
