It Ain't Just the Numbers

This month's happiness theme is Physical and mostly I've been posting about my weight and diet, but there's a lot more to this month then the numbers on the scale.  It's about taking the time to groom myself.  That kind of makes me sound like a dog, but I can't think of another word that's less canine.

It's about washing my hair the day before it needs it and shaving my legs before I start resembling Sasquash.  I try my best to make sure that my hair is done at least once a week so this way I don't get perma-ponytail head.  You know, where your hair starts to dent and your scalp starts to ache.  When I'm put together in clothes that fit and flatter me it makes me feel good.  Last month, I tossed anything that was uncomfortable or too tight or I just didn't like.  It significantly depleted my closet, but the things that are in there are things that I like so it actually makes getting ready in the morning easier.  Although, I might need to schedule a shopping trip soon.

I'm more conscious about my skin as well.  I try so hard to take my make up off every night and moisturize.  Sometimes I do and sometimes I just crash into a heap of raccoon eyed exhaustion.  But I am doing my best.  Somedays I still look like a slob mommy, in my yoga pants and T-shirt, but somedays I manage to really get it together.  It's surprising what a comfy pair of leggings, tunic shirt, and ballet flats can do to make you look and feel good while still being casual and comfortable.

Hi - I am asking for fellow bloggers to visit my site in hopes that we can find a match for a young girl that desperately needs a bone marrow transplant. Would be great if you could visit today too. Thank you. Kelly
