Hi Momiform Makeover readers!! I'm so happy you stopped by today and can't wait to gab about the things I made! :)
As a stay-at-home-mom to 3 young kids, it seems my momiform can always use improvement. During my pregnancy and directly after the birth of my third, something clicked for me. I realized that the level of my mood and motivation had a direct link to the way I was dressed and to the level of cray-cray, aka, messes in my house. Having struggled with some baby blues during the first year of my second child's life, I knew I had to make an effort in order for that not to happen again with my third (who is now 6 months old).
A few simple things that I now do on a daily basis have vastly helped to improve my mood and especially my productivity.
#1 - which ties heavily into this post - is to GET DRESSED. It doesn't matter too much what, just not. those. pajamas. But I still get more done and feel more motivated in non-yoga pants.
#2 - Make the bed. Seriously. It blows my mind how much better I feel when I walk into my room during the day and see my bed made.
#3 - Clean the kitchen every night before going to bed. It is like a breath of fresh air to walk into a clean kitchen at 6am.
So to get us started, here is a peek at what my momiform has looked like this summer, I am only 6 months postpartum, my clothes still don't fit exactly like they should, so it's not great by any means. BUT. It's not workout shorts and tees ;) I didn't want to spend a ton of money for my changing body this summer, so my everyday wardrobe consisted of Old Navy shorts and Target tees.
