Due to a variety of factors including the insanely cold winter we're finally coming out of -- I found myself in a major, MAJOR funk over the past few months. Actually, forget calling it a funk. Ever since last summer ended, I've been in a depression of sorts -- to the point where I kind of let myself go a little bit in regards to my appearance.
(See how I was using my kid as a shield? Pathetic.)
I'm a little ashamed to admit it, but I found myself in yoga pants on days when I had no intention of working out. I stopped putting on makeup every day. I gained weight. And I even started telling myself that because I'm in my late 30s -- it really didn't matter that my looks had gone in the gutter a little bit.
But then a couple weeks ago, I made one teeny-tiny change to my appearance -- and suddenly I look and feel like a brand new person.
