Well, it happened…..One of the things I swore would never ever happen in my life……I was doing laundry and looked down, and low and behold, there was my mother’s arm where my arm used to be!!!!!! AAARRRRGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! In my rush to run away from the image, I turned around and caught my backside in the mirror above my bathroom vanity. ACK!! Not only do I have her arm, I have her tushy too!!!!!!!!! This is awful. How did this happen? Where did MY body go?
Things are not the same after three kids and gravity have taken effect. I’ve tried watching what I eat (yep, that was another See’s candy going straight from the box into my mouth…yep, I see that french fry on the plate that has somehow made its way to my face, etc, etc, etc), but it’s apparently not enough. Working full time with three young children at home, working out and eating healthy are luxuries that time doesn’t often afford. Horrible, horrible, horrible!!! And now my mother’s body is taking mine over. This just isn’t right. I want my body back!!!!
I have made this promise to myself many times over the past two years…I WOULD make the time to exercise, I WOULD eat healthier….it just doesn’t seem to play out for any extended period of time. This time, I HAVE to do it. Yes, it would be easier to sit on the couch watching the tv after the kids have gone to bed; yes, it is easier to throw hot dogs or chicken nuggets into the microwave than really cook after a long day at work; yes, it is easier to hit a drive-through than fix and eat a salad or whatever for lunch…..You get the picture. I just can’t take it any longer though…..I love my mother, but I DON’t WANT HER BODY!!!!
