Let’s play a game of “society says”…

So, unless you’ve been living under a rock I’m sure you’ve heard of the photo that went viral and the backlash that came with it. Does this ring a bell?

Everyone deserves a break!

I’ve been going strong with my diet and exercise for 2 weeks. Then.. I decided to take a night off! Trust me. At first, I felt like I was throwing away everything that I had been working on. Then I realized, IT’S OK!!

My night off consisted of deep fried cheese bites. The deliciousness was out of this world! As well as a few adult beverages and a some good live music.

My friends, Sacred Road Country Band are awesome! A very talented group and wonderful people! I love watching them perform! So much energy! Find them on reverbnation!

Photo cred: Reverbnation. I don’t want to be in trouble! 🙂

So, I took a day off from working out. I didn’t eat like I should of but I had a GREAT time! Remember that wellness is a whole body inside/out concept, not just the number on the scale.

Mirror mirror on the wall…

I had a thought…

What do you see when you look in the mirror? (If you just say your reflection, you’re a funny one.)

How would you describe yourself? What kinds of words would you use? Would you nit pick at the parts you didn’t like?

Here’s what brought on my thoughts. I passed by the mirror the other day and my first thought was, “ugh”. Yes, folks “ugh” was what I used to describe what I saw in the mirror. As I continued on throughout my day, that”ugh” feeling stayed with me.

Then I realized…what if I could change the way I see myself? Could I change how I FEEL about myself?

Healthy pumpkin pie shake goodness

I have an obsession with all things pumpkin.  I may or may not have been first in line when Starbucks told us they released their pumpkin spice latte early. #PSL!!

Pumpkin=fall and fall means trip to the pumpkin patch, boots and cozy sweaters. As well as, adorable pics of kids in fuzzy pumpkin outfits.

SCHOOL STARTED! 

photo-3

I’m not sure about everyone else but we (yes, that includes my kids) have been sleeping in all summer. It’s been glorious!

Now that school has started it has been a little bit of a struggle to try and find a good routine. I applaud the moms who are up before their kids and are in the drop off line with makeup and hair done. I think you may be super human but you look wonderful all the same!  I… am not that mom 🙂 I get to the drop off line in my yoga pants and coffee cup in hand. Can I get an amen for yoga pants?!
