So grateful to have been feted and celebrated by some cherished people in my life over the last few days. One highlight missing from these moments is sitting and reading with a smile on my face all of the heartfelt birthday wishes from many of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. By the way, my daughter got us tickets to see the spectacular Cirque du Soleil show, Luzia. Sharing a few video highlights. Highly recommend! #BlessedWithLove#SoExcitedAboutThisComingYear#LoveBirthdays#Celebrating#cirquedusoleil#luzia
I have very thick fast growing hair. When I was young it was down to my butt before I was three. I hated brushing it, washing it or putting anything into it. I got older and through my sports driven lifestyle it got shorter. However it was never cut shorter then a bob that hit just below the jaw. I realized somewhere in my adolescence that a part of my identity was tied to my hair and I kept it the same way for a long time because I didn't want to lose my "identity" and be judged by the all too cruel world . Then... I turned 30. I all of the sudden felt lost. I just had my second child and for some reason felt like out of left field, the rules of engagement for life had changed. I just couldn't get a grip.
One day I looked in the mirror and didn't see an ounce of the girl I used to know. A month or so after that I made up my mind. And a little over a year ago, I got up the courage to do what I had yearned to do since I was a kid, and cut all of this suffocating identity off. It was the absolute best thing I had ever done for myself! I felt like I had finally been transported back to the girl I was, and missed, so much! However, when you make a change like this, there will be opinions. I received so many compliments but there were also so many hurtful things said about my hair. I let the negative get to me and I grew it out to the good ole bob again and hated it!! I can't explain it folks but I feel the most like me when my hair is like this. So, I went yesterday and got IT back. I'm not going to let anyone steal my peace with their opinions again. It is just hair right... well not for me. For me it is a way that i can make my outsides match my insides. I feel stifled no more.
What is something you do that makes you feel the most like you?
Ok I'm not really dying but everything is a delicious sore and I'm cool with that 😆
Week 1 of #80dayobsession is complete! There were a bunch of moves that I definitely used the modifier for and a few I made up my own modification. Yeah, I modified the modifier #rebel
Initially I was worried about the timed nutrition. My last meal is at 8:30 pm and I wasnt sure what to expect this weekend. After the first day I was all about it. I stayed on point all weekend and even ate out for a meal. .
Week 2 we up our weights. I've been using 8lbs which feels comfortable. Like just the right amount of challenge. But I'm going to toss my 10s in on a few. .
Biggest fear for this week: I have an over night trip. I'm mostly worried about not eating on time or close to time. #wishmeluck

#31DaysofWellness Tip: Let’s talk self-care. One of the most important things you can do for yourself is caring for your body! Take care of your mind, body and health. Get regular medical check ups. Eat healthy and work out. Get plenty of rest. Drink lots of water. Exercise your mind by continually energizing it with interesting and exciting challenges.
I had a moment a few weeks ago where I realized I'd been sacrificing my health for the "hustle"...AGAIN.⠀
There's nothing cute about that. I have to remind myself that good health fuels the hustle. Anyone else relate?⠀
Hustle and flow people, hustle and flow.⠀
