Day 6!!

We have been busy bees this week!  The weather is wonky, hot/cold, rain/sun, so I think my sinuses have been acting up a bit. Boo!  So today is just a random collection of what is "currently" happening around this hiz-ouse.

I'm currently…

…putting my feet in plastic bags.  No for real.  I grabbed this on my birthday and it's actually incredible!! I use the sea salt scrub first, then apply this foot mask, wrap my feet in some grocery bags, and leave in on for about 45 minutes.  It kind of smells good and I love that I can still get things done, while doing a foot treatment.  I rinse/scrub it off in the tub and then apply the peppermint foot lotion.

Heaven!  My feet get a little lot roughed up, as I hate wearing socks or shoes, so this helps!

…reading, The 10 Distinctions between Millionaires and the Middle Class.  I was reading Brooke, I'm a Big Sister before she went to bed Friday night too.  She doesn't quite get it yet haha.

Anyway, this book is short, sweet, and very to the point. It takes a lot of the "other" books and simply breaks it down.  The difference in money, how we view it, act about it and why some people have more money than others is very clearly laid out.  I love reading it and then telling my husband what I read about, as he's already heard it on an audiobook (once upon a time) and it makes for great discussions.  I'll go into more later…

…eating, a healthy breakfast.  I really try my very best to continue sticking to the 80/20 rule.  I you can start your day out on the right foot, you are well on your way to success! 

The three of us share this fruit cup.

I toss in some greens with 2 eggs for my main protein/get ma greens on.

I have one slice of whole wheat toast because I just love toast with eggs. It's my thing.

Breakfast holds me over a few hours and then I usually eat a protein bar.  [forgot one today, doh!]

…playing soccer.  Not really, but we signed Brooke up for "Soccer Tots" and she runs around, playing games, singing songs, kicking balls.  It was really cool to have Joe home with us today, so he could what she'd be up to!  That little kid ran right in front of my pic as I tried to take it!  It's about an hour long, and I'm a little nervous how well I'll waddle come November, but it will keep me active!

…taking car selflies.  She loved it!

…getting really annoyed with society.  What the heck is with people? I know this is supposed to be "funny" but there are TOO many people that really think they're entitled to this kind of thing, that this cartoon just rubs me the wrong way.  Especially with the whole minimum wage debate and this terrifying article about moms being too stressed to cook dinner.

I just don't get where the whole, 'we get what we work for' notion fell apart.  I could go on and on, but that's probably another post as well.

…loving this visual!  What a great way to showcase how many options our company has to provide health and wellness!  Do you or do you know anyone who could benefit in any of these areas? I'd love to provide some coaching!!  I'm also donating ALL of my earnings this pay period to the CCFA (Crohn's awareness)…more on that later!

…telling myself to,

Somethings really are out of my control, and I just need to keep doing what I'm doing and not worry about others, unless they're ready to change themselves.  Too much time can be spent trying to fix someone or something that doesn't want to be fixed.

….and lastly, I am getting ready to head out on a date night with my man and some good friends.

What are you currently up to?


  1. Another one who's worried about the state of society. Going to try your 'plastic foot bags' trick - thank you!

  2. I love Lush, but I haven't tried that foot mask yet. I'll have to check it out.

    A friend recommended O2Gold to me for my longer runs. It's only been a month or so, but so far, I am a believer.


I'd love to hear from you. Each & every comment is so very much appreciated!! :)
