7 Day Challenge

I try to do this once a month and to be honest it's really hard with a husband who likes his junk food. Now I can't take credit for this challenge I found it on Pinterest now I will tell you I only found the picture on Pinterest that is at that link. For me though the no pop or soda doesn't bother me the hard part is the no bread, red meat, sweets, and pasta. Which you can probably see is half the list the citrus fruit daily I don't really know if it counts but when it comes to my daily citrus and water I do it together by infusing my water with lemons or limes. 30 minutes of exercise usually depends on my mood yoga or running just depends. Just remember a cup of water is 8 oz  I usually add to this challenge no caffeine goodbye coffee hello herbal tea. It's been a while since I've done this so it might be harder this time but where I am a stay at home mom now I should be able to do this during Mr. Gabriel's naps.

I'm gonna touch a subject that I really don't want to but, as women, we are told we have to have a certain body type that's not why I do this. I'm not ashamed of my mom bod which from the help from the YouTube videos Wine Mom this video tells you how to love your mom bod. I do these challenges so I can love myself while I'm not ashamed of my body I don't love myself as much as I should. I need to take care of myself so I can be there for my son.

With having epilepsy I also need to keep my health in check to keep myself from having seizures. I also want to be as good as an example as I can for my son my husband's sister (who is 8) also I wanna prove to myself that I can do it. Yoga is my favorite I've learned I enjoy some forms of exercise running and yoga mostly but where it's winter and my husband won't be able to start on our at home gym till spring plus living in Montana winter is not nice. I keep looking at our shed imagining it bigger I get excited since it's going to gain some square footage.

More Change....It's Good Though

I know I put it on my podcast but need to let my readers know I am enrolling in college, so I'm cutting back in some areas. My blog is my home and the first project that I have been neglecting horribly, and I apologize I use to use it as a safe place from my ex-husband and where my divorce is finally finalized as of September 19th, 2019. I don't really need a safe place anymore, but I still want to strive to help people, and I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but I need to work on myself before I can genuinely help someone else. Starting tomorrow, October 10th, 2019, my boyfriend and I are going to be working out as a couple. I'm excited because well, as cheesy as it sounds, this is a first for me. I'm making new frists with him; we are going to be Pikachu and Ash Ketchum for Halloween; it's another first for me as well. I've been so happy with my life lately; I almost forgot to keep my passion alive. I know that sounds weird, but it happens life

Mom Life

If you're a mom you might just ask yourself this question almost daily "Am I a bad mom" I know I do and I normally talk to my best friend or my boyfriend about it and why I feel that way. I always get told the same thing by both of them "NO you are not a bad mom you are doing what you can" That is one this every mom needs to remember you're no a bad mom if it's your first child no matter how old they are you're still learning. Every day is a new lesson. You're never truly are on your own when it comes to parenting even if it feels like it at times. As being a human you're constantly learning even if you don't realize it. Just because it's not a big lesson sometimes the smaller ones can be more of an impact than the big ones.  My toddler constantly tests my patience he tries to push me to my breaking point. I get mad but I have to take a deep breath. I know he doesn't understand but sometimes I think he knows exactly what he&#

I really don't know what I want this post to be about, I've talked about unplugging what I'm up to I just won't call writers' block. If  I were to do that though I personally feel like I'd be giving up, I've been racking my head on how to finish out this project I've been working on. I want to tell you, but it's a secret, and I can't wait until everything is done. I will tell you this project is suitable for everyone of any type. I know I've announced that I am now an ambassador for 2 companies, but they still have a couple things in common Craft 1816 and Just Strong. In case you haven't heard of these brands, Craft 1816 is a CBD oil company and is THC free Just Strong is a fitness clothing company based out of the UK. As far as I know from the other ambassadors I've met, they are just really into health or have a form of disability themselves. I haven't met someone with Epilepsy yet. Just Strong believes in mental and physic
