I know this week is Thanksgiving week and I should be thankful but
I wanted to get some whinyness out of the way before I started the thankful posts.
So for the past several weeks I've been a little whiny and not so grateful.
Not everyday but mostly whenever I've ventured out shopping!
I had to purchase a few new items for back to work, mostly pants and shoes.
And these excursions have made me so miserable.
And usually shopping does not.
For some reason certain parts of my body parts have decided to remain in pregnancy mode.
Although Baby Pancakes is out and almost three months old...
I have this body I have to learn to live with.
And in living with this new body postpartum...I have to forgo some of my material things.
This is what makes me miserable...
Not fitting into my old items.
Most of my work pants do not fit around my belly.
YES i still have the mommy pudge...
I can't even call it belly...
it's a full blown pudge!
My shoes...it makes me sad all over again writing this...
none of my shoes fit because my feet has grown like a size and half.
I kid you not.
All my shoes fit tight....
My world famous Italian leather riding boots purchased in Italy do not fit me.
These are boots I have been wearing for the past eight years....
They were my go to Winter boots.
And my fingers have also not returned to normal.
My engagement ring and wedding band rings continue to fit but are too snug.
This could be a good thing because i could get new rings BUT
in all honesty I don't want new ones...
I LOVED my old rings because they meant so much to me.
Everyone keeps on saying it's only been two months, three months...
it's still early but i guess I am just being inpatient.
Initially, I thought as soon as Baby Pancakes was out,
my feet and fingers would not be swollen anymore.
Unfortunately that is far from the truth...
I guess I am feeling a little blah postpartum as it relates to certain parts of my body.
I am not depressed about it because
I know what to do to get my body back in a healthy manner...
I just thought it would be more immediate.
In moving forward...I am not going to feel bad for myself...
I am going to come to a realization that
MY BODY HAS CHANGED AND THAT'S ALRIGHT!
Acknowledging this will hopefully help me
to move from being whiny to taking action and being proactive.
Question of the Day:
How have you turned your inaction into action?
