It’s Valentine’s Day!
All week long I’ve been sharing Valentine’s Day posts, like a fun, educational Alphabet Match-Up and ideas on spending the day with your kids. It’s one of my favorite holidays because it’s all about love…and who can’t use a little more love, right?
Love can take on many forms. For instance, you love your husband differently than you love your kids, and you love your siblings different than, say, you love cheesecake. But probably the most important form of love you can have is the love for yourself. YOU are the most important person in your life and, if you’re anything like me, you need to be reminded of that sometimes.
So as I sit here, having gained a very unhealthy 20+ pounds, I think to myself…
What in the world happened to my love for ME?!?!
I used to take so much pride in the way that I looked. I kept my weight in check, I bought nice clothes, and even glammed it up from time to time. How sad is it that since I got married I’ve kind of been…blah.
So today, on Valentine’s Day, I realize that I need to love ME more often and start taking care of my appearance. I have said this many times before, but I have got to get back to loving the way that I look. Because right now I just…don’t. For starters, I’m going to tackle this huge ring of fat that’s hugging my midsection. I need to work out at home, get the Britax BOB stroller out of the basement to go for a walk with my son, and start keeping track of my calorie intake.
That’s it. It’s time to love me.
Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with the ones you love.
