Like my first two pregnancies, this one brought with it the less-than-pleasant side effect of extra weight and a feeling like every part of me has shifted. Even now that I’m almost at my pre-baby weight, my clothes still aren’t fitting quite right. And, while I’ve had a ton of positive encouragement from my husband, and a few comments on how I look like I haven’t just had a baby, I am still feeling a little frustrated with myself for not getting my butt into gear.
That’s not to say I haven’t had any victories; my maternity clothes are gone and my pre-pregnancy jeans do button up.
But, really, I don’t feel like I have a good excuse, since my little guy is great sleeper at night, and I could strap him into the stroller and get out more. But, I don’t do that nearly enough, and I feel a little guilty about it.
Anyways, I’m getting there (slowly, but surely).
And, I came across a video today that made me feel just a little bit better about the ridiculous ideal that I (and most women) tend to strive to.
I’ve watched it about a half dozen times. Powerful stuff. And definitely a good reality check.
