My Week According to Pinterest

Sometimes I wish that I had like an entire day to myself (no hubby, no kids) to just get stuff done. But then I get time to myself, and I instantly miss the chaos that comes with having two kids under 5 years old. Call me crazy, but it's like I don't even know how to relax anymore.

The kids are out for a couple of hours and there are so many things I can be doing. Cleaning the house, doing laundry, meal prepping for the weekend, working out, taking the dog for a walk. But no, I'm choosing blogging today. But that's OK right? It's my stress relief. My creative outlet that I always complain I have no time for.

In honour of the weekend, and the super cold weather, here are a few things I pinned on Pinterest this week. Some are health and fitness related...some aren't - but t hat's just how this momma rolls.

My most popular pins was my list of 10 Fitness Inspired Instagram Accounts I follow, and this quote about the Law of Attraction.

Here are a few more:

Life Lately: Back to Basics

It's been awhile since I felt inspired to write anything either on the blog, in my journal, and hell, even in Birthday/greeting cards these days. I blame stress from various sources but also a bit of laziness too.
It feels good to flex the writing muscle again, so here's what's been happening in my life lately. 
We celebrated my sister-in-laws baby shower recently and it was such a fun day! Check out her decor, she and her friends did an amazing job - the dessert and candy table was a hit!

Aaaand someone was tired from all the festivities....a cat nap was obviously needed!

Then there was that time we had a family games night. I was so tired but my hubby got major points for setting up the board games, getting a surprise dessert for the kids (DIY sundaes), and wine for me!

I enjoyed some much needed me time with my couch, comfy blanket, and a warm coffee.

I'm on a new and improved healthy eating kick and panicked a little when the family wanted to go to Boston Pizza one day f…

{Motivation Monday} Looking Back and Moving On

I can't believe this was me about 2 years ago....I remember being on my weight loss journey and thinking I needed to lose another 15 pounds.

Talk about being delusional. I am working towards this shape again and I know I can get there. It's not about the number on the scale, it's about feeling comfortable in my own skin - especially since having kids has totally changed my body...and let's not forget how wonderful gravity is after you hit 30...and how it f's you up again at 35! #effinghormones#gravitycansuckit

Still working hard at it with 21 Day Fix (almost half way done)....and I know I'll reach this goal soon, even if it takes a couple more rounds of 21 Day Fix, or a few 30 day fitness challenges plus eating healthy and watching my portions!

I knew when I was ready I'd get back on the fit train, and I'm so pumped to keep going. #accountabilitypost#hardworkpaysoff#gettingmybodyback#fitspiration

So my question is, do you also feel like you need to get bac…

Friday Favourites #1: Fashion, Clean Eating, Holiday Treats & Side of Inspiration

I started my day super early this morning - not because I was working out at 5:00 a.m. getting my fitness on. Nope. Not this mom. I was up at 4:30 a.m. trying to convince my 6 year old that it was night time, not morning, and had to get his effing ass back into bed and go to sleep. It didn't work. The kid is persistent, and he's allergic to sleep. I did manage to finally break free and get my 30 minute bad-ass workout in around 6:30 a.m., and that wasn't too bad because lucky me, I have the day off from work today - so I didn't have to worry about rushing through the morning and getting to work on time. Win!

So it's 9:30 a.m. on a super cold but beautifully sunny Friday morning. I'm 3 coffees and a protein shake deep into the day already, listing to the audio version of  You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life: In Less Than 30 Minutes by Jen Sincero.  I keep hearing how important personal development is soooo I'…
