And, I'm sure you can tell by the look on her face, it's serious business, this sitting thing!
And on to me, and my revelations. I was reading this blog, and they were talking about how hard it is for people to get over hanging out in bathing suits (or shorts or tank tops or whatever) - and she said this "If I could tell you how to have unshakable confidence and feel secure in your beauty while running around mostly naked in public, I would. I’d also be fantastically wealthy. We worry about being too big. Other girls worry about not having curves. Guys worry about their man-boobs or hairy backs. It’s a universal problem whose cure is mental, not at the gym or the surgeon’s table. We have to realize that everyone sees us, all the time, and they already know what our bodies are like. You know what? That’s okay". Damn. That is so true. I was walking around our front yard on Sunday in my bathing suit and a pair of board shorts - and Cam started walking next door. And I was thinking I should run up and get a shirt before going over to my friends house. Um. Hello!?! She knows I'm chunky. Wearing a tee shirt doesn't hide that, and will just make me hotter on a muggy 80 degree day.
So - I'm trying to work on my body image issue this summer - finding a flattering bathing suit and then just having fun running through the sprinklers with my kids and digging in the sand. I'll let you know how that goes.
