Just Be Happy

Time to change!

Yes, it is time for me to change my attitude, take care of myself a little better. No, nobody advised me to do that, that decision came on my own.
I am just tired of looking at myself in the mirror and not being happy with what I see, don't get me wrong, I am happy with the husband I have and with my little one, but I think I have been letting myself go...
On Monday I started a diet - really needed diet, since I had two pregnancies really close together and not enough time to lose all the weight I had gained in the first one, then add lots of pounds to the second one... the result is me! LOL (I'll let you guys know how it goes, before hand I tell you, I am already losing weight - well, I am being really hungry too... LOL)
I really should get my nails done more often, whiten my teeth every once in awhile, keep my hair down and not in a pony tail all the time, put make up on every time I go somewhere, well, maybe even if I don't go anywhere, but just to look pretty for myself... you know what I mean?
Being a mother and a wife doesn't mean I can't take of myself, I have to make time for that, it's important I think. Isn't it true?
Well, the good thing is that I have my mind set now and I am really stubborn, which is not good sometimes, but this time I think it will work in my advantage.


  1. It totally is all about the mind set, 100%! You can do it girl!

  2. Sometimes I feel like you do right now but my stubborness is not enough for me to accomplish all my goals.
    I know you can do it!

  3. I'm rooting for you! You can do it. :-D

  4. I feel your pain! Now I haven't had two children, but my hubby is a child enough. He never cleans up after himself except for his own desk and washing his work uniforms. He helps with the baby but I feel as if Im always cleaning and the house is never clean. I never wear my hair down and have been fussy because I need to get hairs cut. Ugh, and the baby weight...so depressing. Ive lost 10 of the extra 30 I need, but it changes daily, back and forth, yuck, and just as Im getting my pregnancy stretch marks to fade, I get nice loosing weight ones! Good luck with the diet and all that fun stuff. You'll feel better soon. I wish you the best, and sorry for my rant ;)

  5. ITA with you! Your post gave me more inspiration to take mind of the way I look OUTSIDE of work. Weekends I lounge around and basically don't give a thought to the way I look - and then I see myself in a mirror and think "what happened to that woman who said she'd NEVER let herself fall into the suburban rut??" A mani-pedi helps - maybe I'll treat myself to that next weekend? :-) GOOD FOR YOU!!!

  6. i am sooo proud of you! you go girl! i think you are right on the mark. who said you can be a mom and take good care of you?
    i'm cheering you on.
    hey, aren't you from brazil? congrats on the olympics. are ya gonna get tickets?

  7. I know exactly how you feel...I was stuck in the same place after the three boys...now I take care of myself first and I think I enjoy them more because I like me!! Good luck.

  8. Oh, yes. I so know exactly what you mean! It is so much harder when the kids are little, when they've taken over your time, energy and your body and you hardly recognize yourself anymore! But they grow so fast, don't they? You will have time for you again. Everything is a little harder now than it used to be but all of us moms have been there and it's so worth it in the end. And it is worth it to work a little harder than you used to to enjoy looking in the mirror again--good luck and hang in there!!
