Reality Check

Last night while I was working out at the gym, I looked down at myself. I was toned, trim, and in overall great shape. I couldn't believe it! Just 7 weeks after having a baby and I had NO cellulite. None! I looked good. Damn good.

And lemme tell you, it was such a great feeling. I felt young and healthy and in shape.

...And then I woke up, hauled my fat butt out of bed, and had myself a cinnamon roll for breakfast to get over the disappointment of my reality check.

By the way, have you tried the take-and-bake cinnamon rolls that they sell at Ikea? Yeah, I know - a furniture store is an unlikely place to find tasty danish, but after eating several of them I can guarantee you that they truly are delicious. Especially right out of the oven. So warm and toasty. Mmmmmmm.

Dude, I was about to reach through the laptop and bitch slap you, but then you redeemed yourself.

Those cinnamon rolls at IKEA are like crack. I had no idea they had take and bake rolls though.... Uh oh.

Whoops.

LM: Oops. They're not actually take-and-bake! I must be low on brain cells or something for writing that! I just put them in the oven when I get home to make them warm. So much better that way :)

Call me Pollyanna, but that sleek you is in there. Bet you'll be writing a paragraph similar to this before Valentine's Day.

FCM: thank you, though I hardly see myself as a twig. It would definitely take more than a soft breeze to blow me over these days. :)

The worst part, though, is that as I get bigger, Husband seems to be getting smaller. He actually wishes he could gain weight. Grrr.

When I'm at the gym, I'm strutting my stuff feeling all hot and fit and young, then I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and get a HUGE reality check. What happened to my cute 18 year old body and face??!!
