Be savage, not average. According to the Enneagram test, I’m a 8 wing 7.
Type 8: The Challenger! Self-confident. Decisive. Willful. Confrontational.
Basic Fear: of being harmed or controlled by others
Basic Desire: to protect themselves (to be in control of their own life + destiny)
Eights are assertive, strong and decisive. Eights may become confrontational and intimidating in a situation where they feel others are more dominant than them, but they can also use their strength to improve others’ lives.
Not sure that’s 100% me, but I did take the test 4 times and got the same damn answer, so????
Hi friends! Hope you had a great weekend. The weather was so good yesterday, I didn’t want Sunday to end. Then Monday had to happen. Woke up sick, I think? Lost my voice over the weekend. Was kinda thinking allergies, but today I’m just beat. So, I’m going to dedicate the week to wellness and self care. Hopefully I can get myself on the mend. Because, God knows, I don’t have time to get sick.
Intentions for the Week:
Take care of myself (I don’t have time to get sick)
Make a Spring Self Care list
Celebrate Cory’s Birthday
Share past Easter posts
Help Bay work on her Spring Show buyer letter
Take outfit photos for the blog
Write a post on Easter basket ideas
Plan out our day in the City
Drink a shit-ton of water
Hit my health goals for the week
This week on the blog: Spring Self Care. Share a new #ootd. Lots of Easter goodies.
One question I get asked all the time? What I use to take my photos and how I edit my photos. I’ve been meaning to write this post for sometime…decided today is the day! Ha! Here are some tips + tricks that I’ve picked up from other bloggers along with lots of trial and error.
Before we get started……I strictly use my iPhone 8 Plus. I go back and forth from portrait mode to regular photo mode. Back in December, I purchased a preset and I’ve been using it ever since.
So, I joined Weight Watchers! Some of you are into it. And some of you definitely are not. That’s totally fine. Since I’ve been getting a butt load of DM’s and questions, I’m going to share ALL THE THING Weight Watchers today. This is 100% my personal opinion. I am by NO means a health expert…lol. Just sharing what I know in hopes of answering some of your questions.
Backstory, I used Weight Watchers after Bailey was born – back in 2007. I lost over 25 lbs and became a lifetime member. Then…..I quit going.
My girlfriend Toni, who recently started Weight Watchers for the first time totally inspired me to go back. After hearing about her 18 lbs weight loss, I knew it was time to get my ass in gear. I recruited the OG’s, My Mom and Sister to join with me. Love you girls and thank you for all the support, recipe sharing, text messages! Let’s do this!
Does Weight Watchers really work?
Here we go…..I started Weight Watchers last Thursday, March 7th.
Today marks 1 week using the plan. Following it 100%. Some workouts + walking. But, mainly focusing on tracking my food. I did my weekly weigh in this morning and here are my results…….
Monday! When you don’t whoop it up on the weekend, Monday’s don’t suck quite as bad. Not going to lie, yesterday I straight up struggled. Kept trying to stay busy so I didn’t think about pouring a glass of wine or opening a beer..lol. Enjoy this sunshine and make today a good one!!
Intentions for the Week:
Make a fun Springy flower arrangement
Watch my nephews play baseball
Tell you guys more about Weight Watchers (I’ve been getting lots of questions)
I can’t remember the last time I said morning or had a blog post publish in the am! So, this is BIG! Ha!
It’s been a busy week. Hence the lack of blog posts. Crazy thankful for my Mom + Cory who have helped me uber Bay around from school. The pig barn. Riding lessons. GATE. I couldn’t have done it without them!
Weekend plans: a trip to Madewell to shop for jeans. You guys, I ordered the black Berkley wash, which I LOVE. Sized down, like I always do in Madewell. And they’re too big. Trust me, I haven’t lost weight either…lol. But, I do like my jeans real tight. Anyway, the size I need is on back order till FEBRUARY 23rd. Real life problems 🙂 Trying to convince Cory to take me to our fave pizza spot, Masullo too. I’m craving a day in the kitchen. Promised GG stuffed bell peppers. Thinking meal prepping egg cups. Spaghetti meat sauce. And I’ve been craving a roasted tomato soup.
I could go on and on, but let’s get to 5 things on my mind……
Three things are making this cold rainy Wednesday better ✨
1. My new favorite jeans 👖 and would you believe me if I told you they are only $25? I’m gonna tell you all about em.
2. Wearing bright cheery yellow tops 💛and pretending it’s not freezing cold. Bay and I both are sharing our #ootd’s today!
3. Bay’s ring light that made these early morning photos possible. I kinda want my own 💁🏼♀️
(I lied 🤥, I really have 4)
4. That Bogle chardonnay 🍷 I stuck in the fridge, because today is one of them days. It’s a minimum day. Pig pens to clean 💩. Parent conferences. And Bays receiving an award at school tonight ❤️ So I’ll be drinking my dinner. Cheers 🥂
Before we get started with #ootd’s – let’s chat about the Ring Light, since I got so many questions about it. Bay got this for Christmas. And it’s legit! Our house is a serious dungeon. We have 2 windows, throughout the entire house. And 2 sliders. They are the length of our bottom floor, but still. Our shack it dark! AKA zero natural lighting. Which makes taking photos really tricky. This thing is a dream come true…lol.
