Calling all Summer Ready Cuties!
Every year we say we are going to work on our summer bodies. We are going to do this by summer. Look like that by summer. Now let’s be real, some of us just say it out of habit. Some of us actually take action and others of us pray without taking action. As Mom’s this list is ten times longer. We are worried about our stretch marks, the extra weight we’ve gained. The girls don’t quite sit up like they used to. We would feel cuter if… We would look better if. Bump all of that embrace YOU as YOU are at this very moment.
My swimsuit story: I am 35.5 years old; I have a 10 year old son and a 3 year old daughter. I’ve been comfy in my relationship for 11 years now. In my younger days I could go bra-less and the girls were in place. I wore crop tops because my stomach was good and flat. Now when I lay down, the girls lay down too and my flat stomach isn’t so flat. Those cute little lines on my thighs really say my kid’s names.
My body isn’t what it used to be, but it is still my body. The older I get the less I care about a lot of things and people’s opinions. Don’t get me wrong I want a big natural butt, a good lift up top, nice thighs and a stomach with at least a 4 pack. We all have a vision of the “dream body”.
Truth of the matter is I love food, if you read my blog then you know how I get down. I’m happy, I’m healthy, I exercise here and there, and I still enjoy my grub. My kids love me as I am and my Babe still thinks I’m sexy. I’m sure you kids love you as you are. They see you as Mommy not your imperfections, why don’t we see ourselves for the amazing women we are and not our imperfections.
This campaign forces us to step outside of our box and I love that. No one will die if you show a little skin, promise!
Summer is almost officially here and I have several swimsuits that are ready to be worn. I can’t wait to run around with my Babe and our kids on the beach. I can’t forget those must have fries and popcorn that I insist on having. They love me for me; shouldn’t I love me as I am too?
Okay Cuties, now it’s your turn to join me and my fellow Blogger Cuties in this challenge. Simply post a picture on FB, Twitter and or Instagram and use #MySwimsuitStyle throughout the week. You don’t have to be a blogger to participate.
Remember this is about loving and embracing who we are and what that new or not so new shape looks like. This is NOT a Debbie-Downer type of thing.
Are you comfortable in your swimsuit? Are you willing to put your “fears” aside and wear it anyway?
