YO, YO what's up?
I know, formal way to start a conversation by blog... I should get some kind of props for being a 40 year old who uses the phrase, "YO YO" and I am not meaning a little toy you learn how to "walk the dog with"... haha
Actually, I am just doing a two week check in from my post about bringing sexy back.
I HAVE A CONFESSION... OR CONFESSIONS.

In my search for bringin' sexy back (so I feel find myself attractive) I have realized that I am not sticking to my list as much as I had planned on. HOWEVER, I am feeling a lot better about myself as of late.
I am still wearing sweats every other day, BUT on the other days I am wearing jeans and a nice shirt and I have been styling my hair.
I have not lost weight. I actually have gained THREE pounds. In my journey to find myself attractive, I did join a gym after I talked about working out and feeling better on October 1st. Not only did our family join the gym, but I have worked out every day except for Sundays... AND we (the girls and I) had a fitness assessment done, so I know what I need to work to get my body in shape.
What I found out is that I need to build muscle and do cardio. So every other day I lift weights and every day I do some kind of cardio. I have gained weight because my body is building muscles. I actually have 'guns' now... they are small guns (like a tiny pistol, not like a machine gun or a Gatlin gun, but gun none the less). And I have started running a "couch to 5k" program and I am finishing up week two.
In my adventure, I have found that working out and getting into shape makes me feel better about myself.
So although I haven't really accomplished everything on my "bringing sexy back" list, I am making headway.
OH, and I know you are wondering... the granny panties are in the back of the drawer... I did start actively wearing my Victoria Secret undies on a daily basis. :) HAHAHA
Have a wonderful week and be happy. This life is too short to sweat the small stuff!
