It was a crappy weekend for me. I had a tough time getting out of bed, my anxiety was under control but I was feeling oh so down. I didn’t want to do anything but lay in my bed (yes, like Bruno Mars) and binge watch Orange is the New Black on Netflix. On Sunday my husband made me go for a walk and I was forced to get dressed…now this is where my bad mood and general feeling sad really comes in.
This is in NO way asking for pity, but my weight is really an issue now. I no longer feel comfortable or content. Hand on heart, NOTHING in my closet fits. Yes, even my “fat jeans” are too tight. I am doing something about it — working out and eating better, but shoot, I’m 35, tired and I’m sure my metabolism in deep sleep right now.
I’ve been wearing the same 3 loose fitting dresses and this polka dot dress has accompanied me for 3 years now — it fits and looks great when I was 30lbs lighter and still fits and feels comfortable 30lbs heavier — it’s truly the dress that keeps on giving!
Wearing this polka dot dress made me feel confident and happy — but I know I can’t wear it everyday.
However, for those few hours we were out, I felt better and it gave me even more motivation to plan my workouts and my eating for the week. I am ready to wear my old clothes again and not continue to see the scales going up and my happiness decline. I did force a smile in the pictures, mainly because it was crazy hot out and I was ready to get home!
I’m ready to get the week started in a happy and positive manner — first thing I did today was hit Fitness on the Run for a workout. Hope all of you mamas have a great one!
I’m your host for this week!

This post is about real mamas who have real style. While we all fall into the jeans and t-shirt rut we are encouraging our fellow moms to take the time to dress their best and rock it like the rock star moms they are!
Did you look especially good this week? Were the other moms at the playground complimenting your outfit?
Share the look that worked for both potty training, the playground and coffee with a friend and let’s inspire each other with some real mom fashion! This linky is hosted by Thrifty and Chic Mom, Momma in Flip Flops and myself Very Busy Mama.
