5-Hour Energy Limited Edition Pink Lemonade { review }

Hi Loves!  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – and my family has been impacted by this horrible disease.  My aunt just finished her last radiation treatment a couple weeks ago in treating her breast cancer and kicking its butt!  When Smiley360 invited me to this “mission” I jumped at the opportunity to help promote a product that will contribute to fighting breast cancer.

Fitness motivationHi Loves!  Another week has flown by!  When I started this post series – I had no idea how long I would keep it up.  Also had no idea how I’d see myself “mentally” evolve on this process.  Its been another up and down week and part of my promise to myself and you is to be real about how things are going.  If you’ve “dieted” or started exercising – you  know how frustrating things can be.  Its not easy – some times – its really hard to keep going and motivate yourself.  (Thats where I love making big pink X’s on the days of my current challenge!)

My No Makeup – Makeup Idea { fall }

PicsArt_1413828681083Hi Loves! Most days – I go for really simple makeup when I’m at work.  For some reason I just don’t like a full face of heavy makeup to work in the office (but thats just me!).  I got my Target Beauty Box in the mail over the weekend and wanted to try out the L’Oreal Lip Gloss that came in it.  I tried it on and fell in love so took a quick mid-day picture on my lunch break.

weight loss motivational quotes | Celebrating Weight Loss! Motivational Fitness Quotes - Midwestern MomsHi Loves! So 9 weeks!!!! YAY! This has to be a new record for me – and I love that you are reading and even those who don’t read these posts – the thought of writing it keeps me going and motivated to keep moving forward.  So last week was a bit of an emotional roller coaster for me and if you’ve been around for a while, you know that I tend to hold my emotions in, and then EAT.  And mostly really unhealthy foods like chocolate.

Get through your workout... Stick to your weight loss plan... In the end, it will all pay off! http://www.onesteptoweightloss.com/shakeology-resultsHi Loves!  Last week was nuts, I was gone a lot and on the go so the challenge was put on hold.  This is the first time I’ve done a challenge and taken an entire week off.  I was also noticing some aggravation with my crabby shoulders and the reverse flies.  Due to an old injury and a suspicious pinched nerve – using heavy weights were causing a lot of muscle strain for me.  Hopefully a week off will have helped me recover.
