The crappy snowy cold weather has been bumming me out as well as my scale. I'm feeling cabin fevery, so I've been bundling Mae and me up and going on insanely long walks like 4-7 miles a day. It's been nice getting fresh air and sunlight. I also started tanning just a couple minutes a couple days a week for some alone time/warmth/light/tired of being so sickly pale. I know that's super bad for you, and I won't make a habit of it, I just feel like February is a bad month for me and I need a little help to get through it. My dad would be really mad at me if he knew because being a red head and skin cancer in the family. Dad, if you actually read this, in my defense it's just a couple minutes, a couple days a week, and just this month only! I feel really happy when I leave, AND for the first time EVER I kind of think my appearing freckles are cute. I always hated my freckles and fought to cover them every summer, but not this summer! Today, I had a therapy appointment and she made me feel better about gaining weight, saying it's muscle (which everyone said already) BUT she also said that having gained new muscle that also means my metabolism will be better and it will help me burn fat better. So, I might start losing now, but my focus should be on how I feel (not a number) and also to get rid of the scale. I feel a million times better now. I came home cleaned the house like crazy since my baby is at daycare, I got a happy happy sushi lunch, and I just started the third Harry Potter book again (because rereading those books ALWAYS makes me happy). Good, happy, happy day.
Pictures with my post are happy post-workout-month pics, snow day pics with Mae, and I've been learning new braids.
