A New Attitude

Posted on | September 20, 2010 | No Comments

I went for a walk yesterday.

And I realized mid-walk, that it is the first time I’ve gone on a walk for the sole purpose of just… walking… in a really long time. Probably since J was about three months old. That’s just sad. And that fact probably has a lot to do with how lousy I’ve been feeling lately. Because really? The more I exercise, the better I feel.

I’m just not doing enough to take care of myself and I should be. I’m pretty important, you know, at least to one little guy in particular. My son’s entire face lights up when he sees me and I’d very much like it if I could be worthy of that type of adoration. I want him to be proud of me. And more than that, I want him to have a mother who is proud of herself and who takes care of herself. 

So I’m going to spend a little less time feeling sorry for myself and a little more time sweating it out.  I have to do something to shut up that little voice in my head that tells me I’m not worth anything and I’ll never be thin so just have another glass of wine and a candy bar.

Because you know what? My kid thinks I’m worth something. And that ought to mean everything to me.
