When I look in the mirror I see Nik! Cute, lovable, THICK, short, curly hair, golden skin Nik. I also see some changes I’d like to make. Like any other mom/woman I see the changes in my body after kids, as I age, and as I embrace who I continuously evolve to be. For example this fupa (fat upper pubic area) I could divorce it, I’d like one chin, toned arms, and thighs that don’t give a round of applause when I walk and a butt that is WOW from the back and the side. Judge if you must that’s just what I see. Don’t get me wrong, I love the skin I’m in, I’m also down for improvements. I workout, I eat right (most of the time), I drink water, and sometimes I see little to no progress.
For me documenting the process includes taking a lot of pictures and trying on clothes. I most definitely have a love/hate relationship with the scale. Clothes and pictures allow me to see changes I might not notice through the scale. As I look in the mirror today, I think, what if this is my body, what if this is the unique way I am supposed to look?! What would happen if I never lose my fupa, if my thighs continue to clap as I sashay across a room, what if my chin continues to double dip. I don’t know exactly what changes will come as I continue on this journey, what I do know is that I am going to appreciate what I see in the mirror today!
So here’s to owning your own temple and living your best life while in it. What do you love about the skin you’re in?
