My Aphrodite Attitude Adventure

Last night I was debating what I should write about in my next post: I couldn’t decide if I wanted to write about makeup or food. Then I saw this in my Facebook news feed:

I really connected with this quote and I realized that I had to be willing to expose more of my struggle if I truly expect to connect with anyone else.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve HATED every picture of myself. The running joke with my friends in.high school and college was that if you wanted a broken camera, let me catch you taking a picture of me. Everyone knew I’d never actually break their camera, but I got scolded many times for untagging myself in pictures on Facebook. Even now I’m rambling to prevent you from seeing me…. Here it goes — this is the most current picture I have of myself:

Me in July 2014

There’s so many flaws I’m cringing at right now, but I want to turn over a new leaf and proudly put my health journey out there for the world to see.

Like I’ve mentioned in previous posts, weight is not the end-all, be-all in my definition of healthy, but it’s also not something you should completely ignore.

So, rather than get into nitty gritty details I know I can become absurdly obsessed with, I want to share with y’all the different things I’m doing in my life to solidify my own Aphrodite Attitude: whether it’s in the kitchen, my home gym or in fashion.

I will end with a positive reflection on myself: I see the beginnings of a beautifully curvy, yet healthy woman.
