I'm bringin' sexy back

I am so sick of feeling disgusting and slobish. Yes, I did just make that word up. I have been contemplating this for awhile. I need a better self image, more confidence, and to whip my life into shape. I am tired of scrapping to find time to shower every 3 days. (OK, I know. EWWWW. But you try to find time to shower when you have 2 under 2, you are alone with said kiddies from 5 am to 6:15 pm, and when they are napping the water running in the next room will almost always wake them up.)

I came to the conclusion that I put my kids, my hubby, cooking, cleaning, almost everything above things that are for me. The showers and exercising included.

NO MORE. I am sick of feeling inadequate as a woman.

It is priority now to primp myself every morning. To put my contacts in, instead of just throwing on my glasses because it is easier. To dress in clothes I feel good about and in, not something that I hope the UPS guy doesn't catch me in. To exercise and make an offensive effort to loosing weight and getting my body toned again. To actually put make up on everyday. Not just on Christmas, weddings, and funerals. I have never had a daily make-up routine, so this is a big one in making me feel sexier.

I have also considered doing HNT, but I am not sure if I am completely comfortable with that idea.

I want to be confident and sexy NOW. Not in 20 lbs. Not when my hair grows out. Not when that shirt I have been eyeing up finally fits me in the size I want it to.

Also, I need to get rid of the granny panties I am still wearing from my pregnancy. You know that ones. I need something that makes me feel sexy and is still comfortable enough to wear every day.

I need bras that fit. Thank Oprah for that one!

I can have sexy in my jeans and kool-aid life. Mommies can be sexy too.

So how do you keep your sexy??

Well, right now, I don't keep sexy very much. I haven't shaved my legs for 2 weeks, I know ewww...
and not being able to see down there (if you know what I'm talking about) doesn't help because I know I'm also a hairy ape there too. Not very sexy.

I say good for you. Doing your hair & just getting dressed nicer can make you feel so much better about yourself. I say go for it girl!

LOL, Marz.

I am to same way. Or was. However that works.

Hair removal was high on list of back burners.

You go girl. You need to do things that make you feel good about how you look.

I get up before the kiddos and put my makeup on and fix my hair, and since I work at a beauty school, I am able to get my hair done when I need to.

You can do it. Take that time for you.

What is NHT?

I love feeling sexy. Pregnancy and breastfeeding depletes my sexiness so I take a striptease fitness class, wear pretty nighties, and make-up on most days. How I feel about my body plays a huge role in my sexiness. I can't wait to give hubby the lap dance of his life after my tummy tuck and new boobs! I admit it, I'm vain!

I'm right on board with you. I have a two year old and a five week old, and I've just started the pattern of actually showering and getting dressed with make up each day. So far I feel better, but I still gotta loose the baby weight. Love your blog!

I do know what you mean! Make-up isn't my thing regardless of the day (and you don't need it either!) but I hear you on all of rest, loud and clear. I've been feeling pretty disgusted with myself lately, and it's only going to get worse after the holiday binging! Keep us posted on how it goes, and hopefully you'll inspire me. :)

I hear you, and with only one little one. Can't imagine how hard it would be with two! I will bet that your efforts pay off though. I think if you feel better about yourself, it reflects in everything you do. Good luck. Looking 4ward to some updates on your progress.

I think its important to fix ourselves up and make ourselves feel sexy :-) even if we dont feel like it. I have a 2 yr. old and its hard to get primped most days.. but I make time for it! because its important in the way I feel the rest of the day :-)

Bras that fit was definitely a big one for me! I recently had my hair done and am feeling sexy for the first time in a LONG time so I kind of know how you are feeling right now.

All right, good for you! I confess I need to get back into an exercise routine again because I miss it (gasp!). But I do manage to put some makeup on every day.
