OOTD : Imperfectly Perfect
Today I went out with one of my closest friends to get clicked. Of course for my blog purpose. The outfit I chose today is a combination of dark pink and white top.
A lot of thoughts came to my mind while I checked my photos today. Before I pen down(read it as type) my thoughts, let me just share the details of the outfit first.
This netted pink skirt is from one of my random online shoppings. This is of ankle length. The inner layer is of same color. The skirt as you can make out in the pictures, is very comfortable to wear plus very soft.
The top. I was bit confused with styling this skirt with a black or a white top. While a black top would add a bit of boldness or strong factor to the outfit, the white top keeps it chick and cute. So, for a change, opted for a white one.
This white layered styled back top is bought from Myntra. The shoulder and the straps make this top something ‘hatke’. 😉
The belt I wore is from a boutique here in Pune. Wore it add some spark for the plain skirt.
For footwear, I styled it with the nu*e block heels from the brand 20 dresses.
Pearl is something I chose to complete the look. Pearl bracelet and earrings made this outfit even more cute and girly.
About the thought. I don’t know about you, but I love myself a lot. Think I am near to perfect in many ways. I’m sure many does. It’s one of those human nature. But what I realized today is, am I really taking a good care of myself???
No, I’m not talking about the things I need or want. It’s about my mental and physical health. Which is way more precious gift you can and should give to yourselves.
While I do go to gym at least five days a week, I feel nothing less than a celebrity. Fit celebrity I mean. Oh come on, if you are also sweating it out in gym, I’m sure you feel the same. But after looking at my tummy in pictures all I could remember was the junk food I have been eating lately.
Social media nowadays has a lot of effects on our generation. Mostly negative. Even though most of the magazine covers out there are heavily photoshopped, we believe that those people are blessed with perfect body and hair.
I know, nobody is perfect. Deep down, we all know. Even celebrities have days where they face bloating and face those extra inches here and there inside those perfect outfits. That’s ok. Absolutely.
But body fat is something we need to work on. For improvising our health.
PS: if you are thinking I have very negligible fat, well, thank you. But as my mom rightly says, it’s wise to start working on weight issues in the beginning. Because once you gain good amount of weight, the weight loss journey becomes way more tougher. Agreed?
While I am worried about visible results of the baby fat getting accumulated in the body, I am way more worried about things which we can’t see inside our body. We eat anything and everything sometimes. Emotional eaters, I hope you are listening…!!!
When we are young, our body is way more capable to handle these harm. But as we age, our body loses it’s capacity to do so. While we have time, I think we should definitely take a good care of ourselves by eating right and doing a good physical activity. This is definitely going to be one of the best gifts you can give to yourself. Don’t you think so???
Ahh about mental health. Tension, stress please stay away.
At the end of the day, I love myself. I love my body. But this doesn’t stops me from improving it.
What I want to tell you guys is, no point in worrying or getting depressed about body weight and those extra curves. This doesn’t mean, you so much fall in love with those curves that you make them bigger day by day. Balance it out. Till you achieve the body you want to (please don’t aim for a Victoria secret angel body, because it takes hell lot of effort), try and try.
Weight loss journey is not about sweating it out in gym. It’s mostly the mental strength you need to achieve the goals. How much you can control your cravings. How much you chose healthy over pleasure of eating.
I see many young girls doing crash diets or just getting sad day by day.
Girls, stop those things. Nobody is perfect. I had a good lunch today which can be seen in some of the pictures. Haha. That means we are blessed with good amount of food.
Balance the things. Instead of worrying about gained weight, plan about eating healthy and sweating it out with good activities.
Love yourself. Weight loss is not a rocket science. Anybody can do it. All it takes is a great disciplined diet and exercise. With regular efforts, I’m sure we can achieve it.
I’m going to start giving up on my love, junk food. I know it’s going to be way more tougher than I think. But I have to start it super soon.
So, what is your game plan to lose weight??? What’s that one thing you have to give up but need a lot of efforts to do so???
Share your weight loss journey or tips. I’m sure it will help most of the girls here. 😊
Hope you enjoyed my outfit of the day and of course my thoughts about those extra curves. 😊
