Whenever the cold weather hits, I always notice a huge decrease in my energy.
I hit the snooze button more.
I don’t go to the gym nearly as often as I should.
I rarely shave my legs.
And if it weren’t for preschool, my daughter and I wouldn’t leave the house most days.
Of course, it doesn’t take long for this sedentary lifestyle to catch up with me, and before I know it, my clothes get tighter and my face gets rounder, and every time I look in the mirror, the reflection that stares back at me sends me into a depression.
Which inevitably makes me reach for the cookies.
The good news is that I recently stumbled upon a fantastic tutorial by Makeup Geek on YouTube that taught me how to make my face look thinner in…wait for it…one minute.
I’m totally serious.
And while I know this isn’t giving me the motivation I need to get back to doing these fun (and free!) at-home cardio workouts for moms, it has helped simplify the world of contouring and highlighting for me, and I’m not afraid to admit I feel pretty good about the reflection that stares back at me in the mirror these days.
(Except when she’s got her hand in a bag of Doritos…)
Give it a look and let me know what you think!
