A Month of Confidence–Image and Health

Welcome to the first week of A Month of Confidence!
This weekend has been a hard weekend–I’ve had a lot on my plate that hasn’t gotten done because I haven’t felt well, physically or mentally. So, I’m glad to be starting this week.

This first week of November, we are going to focus on image and health.

A Month of Confidence

A Month of Confidence

Last week, I wrote a post about accepting the beauty of my postpartum body. I have always struggled with self-image my entire life and feeling healthy in my body. The past few weeks have been hard with health as well, since it’s gotten much colder (and I don’t feel right dragging my baby with me) and our stroller is flat, so I haven’t been running.

But, instead of sitting and giving up, I can do something about this. I can still take a few minutes out of my hectic schedule to care for myself.
Here is my plan for the Week of Image and Health Confidence:
– I will make sure to actually make myself a lunch every day this week
– I will have oatmeal or grits for breakfast twice this week, rather than cereal every day
– I won’t have any fast food this week, nor soda
– I will do my hair every day and do my makeup every day
– I will tell myself I am beautiful, or some other compliment, twice a day
– I will do at least pushups, curlups, planks, and lunges every day
– I will smile every day

I suggest that you also keep a confidence journal. I am, and each day I will have 3 lists:

1) Drops of Awesome–little things I did or accomplished
2) Little Moments–I have a quote in my living room that says, “Enjoy the little things in life, for someday they will be the big things.”
3) Grateful List–small blessings

Sunday, November 9: Confidence in all relationships
Sunday, November 16: Confidence in work and hobbies
Sunday, November 23: Confidence in house and home
Sunday, November 30: Reflection on a Month of Confidence

  1. Just getting started in good health habits is the hardest part! Our school gives us a lot of fruit for free–and I figured out that oatmeal is actually tasty if I cut up a banana or apple into it, so that's my breakfast a lot these days, definitely gives me the energy I need to be up and running!

  2. I wish I had time to join this link up today! Hopefully I will find the time next week. I love this series though and can't wait to see what else you have to say!

  3. This is definitely what I needed to read this morning. I'd love to join in. Can I link up with you?

  4. I'm having trouble getting the image to link back to your site. Would you mind sending me some instructions? 🙂
