I'm Breaking Up With You...

It's Monday morning! Good morning my dears. I hope everyone had a FANTASTIC weekend! I know I did!! My weekend was so amazing I woke up this morning with a huge grin on my face. This was definitely one of the best weekends I've had in a long time.

So... I'm breaking up with several things in  my life at the moment.. It's time for me to part ways with some aspects of life and celebrate others.

The first thing I'm dumping is my long hair...
And to think.. It's actually behaving...

Long hair.. We've had some really good times and we've had some really bad times. You've always been supportive, but lately you've been a bit frizzy and unmanageable. In my quest to feel better in my own skin, I think it's time that you and I parted ways. I doubt that I will ever be coming back to the land of Rapunzel-esque tresses.

My new cut makes me look and feel foxy. I thought I was a sexy beast before, but the new hair just magnifies my animal magnetism. Not to mention I'm a little bit of an attention whore, so I'm loving all the oohs and aahs. RED HAIR DON'T CARE! At least I'm comfortable enough to admit that I'm an attention whore :-p

The second thing I'm dumping is my Monday Weigh In posts...

For too long, I've let my weigh ins on Monday morning dictate how my week goes. I come on here and I place all the focus on that number that the scale spits out at me. That's not my focus anymore. I don't give a damn what the scale says and I will not let it dictate my week. I'll keep logging on MFP and I'll weigh in there, but I don't plan on sharing my weight on my blog. My weight does not define me. I am not worth any less at a size 20 than I am at a size 10. Scale- You don't own me. Bugger off you bastard.

My blog is going to become a haven for me to work my balls off. I want to run and be fit. I want to dance and swim and live an active lifestyle! Fit is not a body shape. Fit is a way of life. Healthy eating, exercise, self confidence, body positivity, and mental health are what I'm all about now. Weight is no longer important to me. Fitness is important. My body is fantastic, time to make it healthier, stronger and sexier than ever.
This exactly... You are all beautiful...
I hope that you all will continue to stick around and read what I have to say... I want every single one of you to know that I'm so proud of everything you accomplished. I love reading about your losses, your gains, and your lives. I'm not going to stop following you and I will continue to cheer you on. This is merely a change for myself. You are all beautiful, strong women and look up to all of you for everything you've accomplished. Rock on ladies! You are in charge of your destiny!

I leave you today with the tshirt that is at the top of my wishlist. There is one person I would cuddle so hard. He's a reader too :) You know who you are!


  1. I love the hair cut! And good for you for not letting the number on the scale define you - its something I still struggle with, no matter how "good" or "bad" my number is.

    Love your attitude - keep it up!! :)


    1. It's been a long time coming, mentally at least. It tooks some real soul searching to realize this.

  2. Love, Love, Love! So many things to LOVE! Love your hair, and love that you're ditching your weigh ins, and I LOVE the positivity!! Sammie, you have grown so much in the time since I've been following you (such a short time!) and I just adore that you are doing so well and have such a zest - you are funny and I just LOVE reading about your journey! Definitely not going anywhere because I can't wait to see where you're headed!!

    1. Thanks so much :) I really appreciate reading your comments every day! I have noticed a bit of growth in myself too. Transitioning from a young adult to a real adult :)

  3. Normally I don't congratulate on break-ups, but for this post I make an exception!

    1. Thanks! Normally I don't break up with anyone or anything unless it's necessary.. I'm ok with these!

  4. Your hair looks FABUOLOUS! I had to break up with long hair a while ago and when I did, I , too, said I would never go back. So far...I haven't!

    I'm not a fan of weighing in on the blog. I thought I didn't have the "guts" but reading your post hit the nail on the head. I don't want that number dictating my week. BRAVO! This is a post to be proud of!

    1. Thanks! I absolutely love the length! I can still pony tail it to workout, wear it down at work, and it can go from wet to styled and sexy in about 15 minutes!

      I was weighing in at first, because I thought it mattered... It really doesn't.. Lessons learned :)
