Oh Hey Morning.

Today started out like every other day.
I hated the sunshine ruining my beauty sleep. 
My kids felt the need to watch 10 million kid shows instead of getting dressed, or eating breakfast. 

I made my protein smoothie that was then spilled in the driveway which caused my daughter to ask a million questions about why I said bad words and left my coffee in the driveway.

I didn't want to get dressed so I wore my pajama's to work, and got two compliments on how nice I looked....

Nailed it. 

Then the doctor told me he wanted me to take another class... next week. 

I stupidly stepped on the scale this morning just to check and was up... 


I also had a long conversation on the phone with my boo Alicia where I was preaching what I preach. 
Slow progress is progress and you just need to celebrate small victories and focus on the good. 
Then she said it
"Do you ever listen to yourself?"

Um no I'm annoying. 
But she's so right. I can tell you all about how to eat healthy and get over the number on the scale, and yet here I am in a pissy fucking mood because the scale isn't moving the way I want it too. 
I need to focus on the positive just as much as I tell everyone else too. 
I spilled my whole breakfast in the dirt and yet I DID NOT stop at Dunkins to eat my sadness in donuts. 
I stopped by the grocery store and got an apple and healthy snacks to hold me over. 


I decided it's time for some positive affirmations. I need to feel good about myself because I'm pretty fucking awesome. 

I found this online and decided to give it a go.
Let me say I am not big on the whole self love thing, but I think there comes a time when everyone needs to sit down and remember how awesome they are. 

Do any of you do this on a regular basis? Try this worksheet with me today. Let me know what you think. 

Don't forget Alicia and I are having a big healthy food and recipe link up tomorrow!!! Make sure you link up with us!


  1. Hi! I am new to your blog, but girl, I can so relate. I talk the talk every day, but walking the walk is another story. It is a huge accomplishment to not stop and get something fatty and comforting!! That takes willpower. I totally drowned my sorrows in McD's hashbrowns and a container of moose tracks ice cream yesterday. You are rocking it!

  2. Proud of you! And I do the same thing! I'm all how the hell do I gain 4 lbs in one day? But it's all relative ;) loves girl! I like the idea of this worksheet too.

  3. Thanks for always keeping me motivated!! You know I love you and I'm sooooooo proud of you!

  4. Girl--skipping the donuts and picking something healthy---you are living it out right there! So proud!!!

  5. Ugh, your morning started off pretty crappy. Poor thing! But I agree, you looked totally cute in your jammies! :)

  6. Ick crazy hectic mornings are the worst. The scale not moving sucks as well BUT honestly I'd rather lose inches than lbs. Although lbs lost makes me happy. It's hard not to focus on that number but you are doing great!!

  7. Oh yeah, I can so relate to mornings like this. I get up at 5 every morning for work and when one thing is messed up it screws my whole day.

  8. Lovely family :)

  9. I know your expertise on this. I must say we should have an online discussion on this. Writing only comments will close the discussion straight away! And will restrict the benefits from this information.
