This workout wardrobe inspiration brought to you by Ross Dress For Less
I don’t know about you, but I was happy to see the launch of “Average Barbie”.
Not because I had any hard feelings toward skinny Barbie; I actually felt bad for her because she didn’t have nipples and her crotch resembled a Pink Pearl eraser. But Ken’s crotch is even more jacked up so it’s not like she’s really missing out on much.
I do, however, think they are giving Barbie way too much credit for her influence on young girls’ body image. How about… oh, I don’t know… giving kids more than 15 minutes for recess and asking schools to stop serving them fried grease on a stick?
But whaddo I know? My kids are sitting at the breakfast table right now asking me if they can put ketchup on their cereal.
It’s true – if I were a dog I would have eaten myself to death 20 years ago. Mexican food and flame broiled meat have been struggles my whole adult life. And with three girls it is hard to stay positive about my bat wings, muffin top and my back boobs.
So as much as it pains me, the past few months I’ve been stepping up my workouts as much for my girls as myself. I know I’ll never see skinny Barbie levels, or even hold a candle to Average Barbie, however, I can be healthy Mom. And lemme tell ya, getting this healthy Mom booty out of bed at 5:20am this winter has been less than pleasant.
But before I know it stuff like this starts to happen…
…and it all pays off.
I used to give myself incentives like tacos and cookies, now I give myself rewards like iTunes songs and new workout clothes. Nothing like a fly new pair of pants or sweet kicks to make exercising slightly less mentally painful.
