Working on the old *ME*

I've been feeling pretty bummed out lately with the cold weather here and being stuck in the house more often than usual. It's too cold for the park and some days it's even too cold to just take the boys out and do some unnecessary running around. Some days as I sit on the couch and watch my boys play on the floor I remember what life was like before I was a Mom. I love my boys and wouldn't trade them for anything in the world, but why is it that when a woman becomes a Mom she tends to let herself go? I remember when I wouldn't leave the house without doing my hair and putting on my makeup. I used to think I couldn't survive without getting my nails done every 2 weeks and had to wear cute little clothes just because I could. I don't even recognize the woman that i've become and somedays just want the old *ME* back. I want to WANT to look good. I want to put on some makeup just because, I want to do more to my hair than just throw it up in a knot on the top of my head as soon as I get out of the shower. Well.. I've decided to take the first step on becoming the woman I remember being before I was a Mom. I got my hair cut the other day, took off 6 inches, just so I couldn't jump out of the shower and throw it up without a thought. Now I have to take some time for myself and do my hair in the morning and would you believe it... I'm already starting to feel like the woman I remember. Isn't it amazing that something as simple as a new haircut can make you feel so much better about yourself!!!

I did the same thing when last summer. I am a mom of three. But at the time I was pregnant with my third. I was in the habit of putting my hair in a ponytail daily. I cut it off short. I still cannot get it in a pony tail.

I have made a similar goal for myself. I used to flop around the house in sweats or even PJs all day. I like to look nice and not be the mom in workout clothes all day either. Not always successful, but trying.
