Taking Life in Strides

My cousin sent me a Rachel Hollis post today and said “You are good at this. Taking life in strides” What a beautiful compliment. It really brightened my day and was definitely put right into my #glitter bucket!  I watched Rachel’s vlog post. It was a great message. She’s amazing. She was talking about  “How we take a hill when we are running and how it correlates to how we live life.” Rachel is a runner. I admire that about her. I try to be …

2020…Vision and Wishes

New Year’s resolution, a year in review, actually… a decade in review. That’s what I am seeing all over my news feeds. I see that some are saying it sucked! I saw a meme with a bag of stinky garbage kicking 2019 to the curb! And then there were others rejoicing in all that the 10’s had to offer! Feeling the peaks and valleys like….break-ups, divorces, weddings, proposals, engagements, the bachelor, RHW drama, politics, fighting, loving, babies, magic, dreams…..the “ups and downs of life”. Did …

2020 Let’s Go!

Building a Vision Page is something I do every year. I love the idea of a vision board but let’s be real, nobody has that kind of time! Especially during the holidays! #hustlemomhustle So I started putting together a vision page. It really helps you frame out the year. It’s more than a new year’s resolution. It’s a way to put into a framework what is important to you, what you want to work on and what your “lobster goal/stretch goal” is for the year! …

Wring Out Your Sponge

Let Your Glitter Shine Through!

An excerpt from: Wring out your sponge. There is a metaphor for life. It’s often been said that we are sponges to the things that are around us in our daily life and the people that are closest to us. You absorb what’s around you. You’re a sponge. But you also have choices! You can wring some of it out so you don’t absorb it! What do you do with the days that are more like spilled milk than glitter? Wring them out! Treat the …

February

February is such a weird month. I feel bad for it sometimes. Does anyone look forward to February? I live in the midwest and I can tell you February is GREY! The sky, the climate, the trees, the earth and the feeling is grey. There is no hint of spring yet. There is only cold and a chill in the air that hits you all the way deep inside your soul. How do you get through February? I don’t know. It’s glum. And sad. And …

Are Your Jeans Hurting You?

I bought some new jeans and I love them! They are from Express and they are so comfortable and fit me perfectly. Those two things are RARELY written about jeans! Let’s be honest! AND, here’s the even better part, they run big so I had to go in and buy an even smaller size. BONUS! Run, don’t walk! They are the best! But there’s one downfall. The button must contain nickel. It’s so weird. This topic has come up a few times in the last …

The Goal Line

Setting goals and achieving them is something many of us strive to do every year. We may set a New Year’s Resolution and then map out a way to achieve it. For me, my New Year’s resolutions started last August. I can tell you that this is the first year I didn’t wait for the new year to start. I took a leap of faith in the middle of the summer and mapped out some goals I wanted to achieve in the new year. Guess …

Girl, Wash Your Face

Girl, Wash Your Face! First, that’s a great book by Rachel Hollis. If you aren’t following her, you should be. Love her inspiration and no nonsense way of looking at life! And this book was GREAT! Now to the washing your face topic. I was recently asked what my beauty secrets are. This always seems so crazy to me because my regimen is the simplest it’s ever been and my face is healthier and clearer than it’s ever been. But it starts with the fact …

And Then One Day You Fit In Your Old Pants

I debated whether to write this blog post. It’s a weird moment. It’s a shout from the rooftops moment. But I also have reservations. I don’t want to come off braggy. And I certainly don’t want anyone to think I think “my shit don’t stink”. But at the same time, I am really proud of my commitment to my fitness and the strides I’ve made. I will also say, that most days, I don’t acknowledge how far I’ve come or see it. I look at …
