Change is a Challenge

Why is change so hard? I know you wish to change something, your body, your tummy, your thighs, your hair, your attitude, your leadership.

What is that ONE thing when you get up every morning, or go to bed a night thinking, "when am I going to start changing XYZ?"

Tomorrow is NOT the answer anymore.

I believe it all starts with a mind-set. Yes, a simple mind-set or attitude. We have to finally give up all control and power over our BAD habits.

It could be a bad habit with eating, exercising, wasting time on Social Media (I'm totally guilty of that), watching TV, smoking, alcohol, biting your nails, too much pop, too much sugary coffee.

When you go to bed tonight, think about the ONE thing that is sticking out in your mind that you KNOW, I mean really KNOW, your bad habit that you want to quit.

Find three people and tell them, TELL them OUT LOUD, face-to-face! Tell them you are not going to do (your bad habit) for two days. Make them hold you accountable. Better yet, post it on social media and you will have many people holding you accountable. Accountability is a struggle, but if you know people are watching, your choices might be different.

So make a change today. It may not be easy, at least at first, but if it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you!

We Finally Found a Lamp!

Well it only took a year and a half, but we found a lamp for the side table in our living room! Remember this post?

We were looking for candle holders and candles at Hobby Lobby and this literally was right in front of me. Everything happens for a reason, right?

This lamp matches perfectly with some other baskets we have in the room! (sorry for the grainy photo)

It sets off the right amount of light at night. And I really like the height of it in contrast to other items on the table.

We also added a circle wall hanging in our den:

Its amazing how long it takes to decorate a house. And it never ends.

What have you been decorating lately?

You want to see my results? I'll show you results!

When I started this blog it was for the sole purpose to document building our patio. Yes, I admit it has morphed into something different through the years. I haven't had a project in a while to share with you all, but this fall/winter I really want to get my craft room going. And I have some small decorating updates to share throughout the house!

For now, I'm focusing on fitness and nutrition and I'm in a happy place.

I'm happy because I am more comfortable in my skin. I still haven't accustomed to my "new normal" after having three kids. The skin on my stomach is my biggest down fall, that is where my self-esteem falls.

I'm not raggin' on my body image, don't get me wrong, I'm trying to create a picture for you all of where I have come from. Like I have mentioned in a previous post, I have been wanting to find a nutrition plan that will work for ME. Once I found it, I wanted to share it with others.

If I could show you a program where you workout 30 minutes a day and it gives you an easy nutrition plan that includes containers per food group, would you do it?

I was STARVING for this program. I had been asking for it and searching for it on pinterest while trying to do it on my own. Then I found the 21 Day FIX and it was exactly what I was looking for. AND the results were proven! PROVEN!

Since starting with Beachbody products in April 2014, I have lost 10 lbs and 11 inches! I did this with 21 Day FIX, 3 Day Refresh and now I'm starting PiYO.  Remember I said I have workout ADD?

Health Tip of the Day - Eat Breakfast
How are you supposed to have energy and a functioning mind if you are not feeding your body? Eating breakfast is one of the most important steps to losing weight and being healthy. Skipping breakfast causes hunger pains, binge eating and irritability. Even if all you eat is a piece of toast with peanut butter on it as you run out the door, the fuel you give your body in the morning will help you function better all day long.
