Lularoe kimono (buy here); Free People tee; Sam Edelman boots; Old Navy jeans; necklace via Rocksbox (similar Baublebar style.)
-I’m currently on week 10 of Kayla Itsine’s Beachbody guide and I am still loving it! I am going to do a full before/after post when I finish Week 12, but I have been so pleased. It’s nice to see some definition in this stomach of mine (I did a quick photo update on Insta last week!)
-I also plan on posting about my current eating situation, which include counting my macros. I’ve been watching my macros (IIFYM diet guidelines) since late Spring and it is pretty great. Once you get over the initial keeping track of your protein, carbs and fat (and the learning curve associated with that), it’s actually really easy to follow.
-Besides running my shampoo business, I work as a substitute teacher at my kids’ school. This means I can work 0 days, 2 days, or a bunch in a row depending on need. On the days I work 5 days it has been a bit of a struggle to balance my kids, their school and activities, with working out and getting stuff done at home. I’ve been really good at working out on alternative days, or going to the gym while my husband brings the kids to soccer, and finding stolen moments to get other things done. It is hard, though! I am not the best mom (in my opinion) when I work full time, but I try my best to keep organized and fit in all the things I need to. The bonus in all this? I choose what days I work, so a crazy week one week can translate into an easier one next.
-I recently made these Butternut Squash and Black bean Enchilada’s for dinner and they were so good!
-I am currently not shopping this month and it has been a struggle, but I feel like I buy a lot of things on impulse that, on second or third thought, I didn’t really care about. I’ve stopped myself from buying about 10 things so far and I don’t regret a single one.
-I’ve been slacking off on blogging regularly around here, but I’m still hanging in there! I am a much more regular poster on Facebook (for real time outfits and shopping tips on the regular) and Instagram, if you care to follow along there as well;) I DO plan on continuing to post here, as I have a bunch of essay type posts rolling around in my brain, so thank you so much for sticking around and checking back in.
-I basically gave up on Snapchat. I can only put my creative energy into two social media spots right now, and Facebook and Instagram win. I just can’t tape my life 24/7 and still be a present person with my family, so there’s that! I DO enjoy watching everyone else live their lives, though. Ha! I will say, I am more attached to Instagram stories, I think it is just easier to check in there as I scroll through?
That’s it for me lately! What’s new with YOU?
