I’ve been getting to know myself a bit more lately, and Chelsey of The Paper Mama has challenged everyone to take a self portrait and link up with her. Show everyone who you are.
I think it’s perfect timing really. I could post a wide variety of self-portraits, but if you may remember, from my Body Image post, I tend to digitally alter my physical appearance beyond the standard removal of blemishes or general enhancements.
Yesterday, being the last day of the January Photo-a-Day on Instagram, I snapped a quick pic of me with my iPhone, and honestly, I really liked it! I did edit the photo, but there are zero physical changes to my person (because holy crap, I was having a blemish-free day)!
Obsessing over…my weight and my weight loss goals and finally kicking myself into high gear to get it done.
Working on…all the goodies I’m donating to the Creative Estates swag bags! I’ve a lot of work in front of me, but I’m excited!
Thinking about…my husband and how much I miss him, because it’s hard knowing he’s only 40 miles away and I can’t visit him because we can’t afford the gas for travel.
Anticipating…my tax refund. So much debt that will get paid off and we’ll have the money to move to the other side of the valley and be reunited!
Listening to…Go Diego Go! on Netflix and my girls singing along. I think I can also hear my brain exploding.
Eating…1/2 C egg beaters scrambled with 1/4 C 1% milk, one hashbrown patty and 4 strips of microwave bacon. My standard USAF breakfast!
Wishing…I had more time and money to do something without my girls, or to do something with a girlfriend or go on a date with the hubs.
I encourage you all to join in on the challenge, there will be a prize awarded at the end!
