Knees. Whoa. I told you I’m basically at the IDGAF stage of dressing myself again, but I’d be lying if I didn’t feel weird posting a picture of my knees. Midriff, no problem…knees, not so sure LOL.
I ordered these shorts from Girlfriend which kicked me up a level in their rewards program and “earned” me a free bra so I chose the Paloma. I don’t love it; I think I need to size up, but anyway I’ve gotten used to working out in one of my ARQ bras of tanks which are heavenly, so anything with any constriction is a no-go. I have noticed that Girlfriend pieces start out VERY snug and relax quite a bit after wearing, so I will try and wear this and see what happens.
The shorts also, are a bit snug and were tough to get on. I have five pairs of Girlfriend leggings in size large which are perfect on me, so hopefully these will give some with wear too. I’m actually looking forward to wearing them when it gets warm enough; I can see how a big tee + shorts outfit would be very comfortable and easy for packing and moving 😉 And hopefully I will get used to seeing my knees.
I’m excited about this new “enlightened” space I’m inhabiting with my body. It’s not new for me to live in a bigger body, but it has been 8 years since I did, and so it’s taken some getting used to. Anyway, the “issue” is not so much the way my body looks, it’s more what my body has a harder time doing now that it’s bigger. I love that I grew Hawk in this body, but I’d be happy to let go of some of the extra bits that came along with that. Moving everyday helps a lot, and I’m really enjoying the Peloton yoga and strength classes.
Side note: thanks so much to all of you who provided input/feedback on reading glasses! I don’t seem to have time to reply to comments individually anymore, but I appreciate them and read them all. Anyway, I tried out contacts and reading glasses for a day and decided I couldn’t do it haha. I didn’t see as well with the contacts, and then having to have the reading glasses near and get them on to do anything up close (eating, reading to Hawk, etc.) was way too much for me to handle; the costs far outweigh the benefits in this case. I am going to get my current prescription put in my old black glasses so I’ll have an alternate pair for whatever that’s worth.
Ah…having a baby, getting older, the joys of life 🙂 It’s wonderful, isn’t it?
Have a great weekend!!
