Feels Good

Every year around springtime, there is one song that stands out and really takes my mood to a whole nother level.  Usually it is a song that is older, whether or not it brings back a particular memory.  I am perpetually behind the trends, and heavily influenced by the likes of (in this case) Ellen.  When I hear said song, I feel the need to youtube-stalk it until I decide it is worth paying the $1.29 to download (lest it be just a fluke because I am already in a good mood), and then finally, I break down and buy it and play it over and over and over.  Last year it was Rob Base's "It Takes Two".  I still play that song way more than anyone on the planet I bet.  This year's winner is (drumroll) "Low" by Flo Rida.  For some reason, that song is just hitting the right nerve right now.
I am still going through a bunch of weird body image issues right now, mostly my mind playing tricks on me.  I know, logically, that I only about halfway to my goal, but since I can wear smaller sized clothing, my mind is telling me I should look better than I do.  Everything in the middle of me is so ugly yet.  I am totally cool with it because I know it will be gone eventually, but it still messes with my mind from time to time.  But, it also reminds me where I came from.  Still, I was in a good mood this morning, and felt like finding something new and cute to wear, to remind myself that I am already starting to look better.  All the clothes I tried on looked OK, but not great.  Then I found these shoes:
Now, summers for me, mean long skirts or maybe capri pants if I find a pair I like.  I usually wear Converse One Star shoes, because they make me feel very punk.  But when I saw these hot shoes, I knew I had to have them.  And once I tried them on, I knew that this summer, my clothing choices will have to include some short-shorts and mini skirts.  I am stoked about how great my legs look with these shoes!

They've always been my most muscular body part, my best physical asset, now I have the confidence to show them off.  Just as soon as I learn how to walk in these babies!  I got a lot of practice today, because I didn't want to take them off, they make me feel fabulous!  And everyone should feel that way, no matter what size they are!


  1. You look great in them! Although they don't look very practical.

  2. Thanks Tony! True, I definitely won't be wearing them for any cardio sessions, but they served their purpose of lifting my spirits and making me feel good about my progress. I never could understand why so many women were hung up on shoes, now I am starting to understand it a little.
