Ugh, I have been in a rut for the longest time now and I shouldn't be. I am newly married and wish I could just snap out of this. As some of you may know from reading, I have had stomach problems for a very long time. 2 years ago I had my colon removed, since then my stomach problems have gotten a little better, but I am still in this rut. I have always hated how when girls get married they let themselves go and now sometimes I feel like one of those girls. Now, I am a pretty casual girl- Love jeans and a t-shirt, but I need to at least start making my hair look descent and get out of the gym pants all the time. I am not high maintenance and don't plan to be, but some things I just feel totally blah! I wear big ol pajama pants and a tshirt to bed most nights when I should be in a silky or cute cotton little gown. When I go to work I feel slumpy when I used to feel cute and confident. Yes, I have gained like 10 pounds, but I am still a size 6, just need some toning and drop the poundage I have gained.
I used to loooove wearing skirts and dresses (classy of course) to work with boots or cute heals, now I can't remember the last time I have put a dress on for work. I want to be a cute wife and a cute mommy some day, I don't want to be frumpy. I know my hair is thick and long, but I need to start taking an extra 15 minutes and dry it to make it look nice. When Allan and I go out to grab a quick dinner, I need to put on jeans and look descent rather than jogging pants. Maybe if I start doing these things I will start feeling more confident again and drop some of these pounds I have gained. Although, since most of you know we are thinking of starting our family soon, the poundage isn't on the top of my list, it will be after baby though. I just want to feel like myself again. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to get out of a rut?
