Dinner date with this little guy!
I’m going to be 100% transparent, I occasionally let my boys have happy meals.🤷♀️
If I eat with them I usually choose a salad and water. (Maybe I’ll sneak a French fry or two)
If I’ve really been killing my nutrition plan I’ll have an occasional “Earned meal”.
I always refrain from using the words like “cheat or cheat meal” because cheating is associated with a guilty Conscience, People cheat on tests or they cheat on their spouse or they learn how to cheat the government or the system.
So the word “cheat” or “cheat meal” it just has such a negative connotation, I don’t like it or use it!
I don’t ever want anyone to think I’m
Someone different from my Facebook page so I feel it’s important for me to share the real me! Life is about balance and lifestyle choices! *
I’ll have birthday cake at a party, I get right back on my plan after!
If I’m in a weight loss challenge I may wait until the challenge ENDS for my earned meal. *
Why shame myself or beat myself up with guilt or yuck yuck words like “cheat”.
Cheating is just not for me, never was and never will be! *
Enjoy your time with your family,co-workers, friends be present in the moment but be disciplined enough to go after what you want in life!!
For me I want to live longer for my boys and long enough to see my grandkids.
The opposite of Joy/rest/play is NOT working hard. It’s depression!
If you work hard you must rest and play occasionally otherwise you will eventually become depressed and that’s not the life I want to live!! ~Brene Brown~
Its all about balance!
If this busy mom can do it so can you!
This is your friendly reminder that what you see on social media isn’t always the whole story. ✨
I mean, that’s not to say it’s false. Images of beautiful places or special moments or big smiles are TRUE.... but they’re just part of the story.
And this is true for everyone.
The other night, as I was going to bed, I just started sobbing.
I have had not one week go smoothly since before Thanksgiving. There has been sickness. Doctor visits. Kids home from daycare. Unexpected work projects that kept me up. Holiday parties. Short weeks. Travel. And so much more... Sometimes, a girl just wants a normal rhythm and routine and this one thrives on it. Thus I have been running on empty for awhile.
So... just a reminder... behind every social media post is the rest of a story you might not get to hear... but everyone has their whole story too... I’m comforted by that. I thought you might be too. 😊
The thought that was put in this... Wow! Anyone who knows me knows that I cherish love. I am aware that hurt and pain may be involved but it will never stop me from loving. How could you not want to experience things like this? This is so dope!
I absolutely love this video. #transparent #Love #grateful
