Hellloooo! Happy Tuesday to you! I hope your week started off amazingly!
Tuesday’s normally would be my “Monday’s” but since I’m not working at the store anymore, today is just a normal Tuesday for me! Don’t know what I’m talking about because you didn’t catch my blog post yesterday? Not to worry! You can read it HERE. 😉
First and foremost, can we please just take a moment to admire my hair in these two pictures that my hairdresser sent me after my hair appointment yesterday? YES QUEEN! That is MY hair! I was literally shocked. I can remember not too long ago (before I went to her) when my hair was extremely damaged, many many different colors (even though all I wanted was to be BLONDE), and never ever grew past a certain length because of all of the damage it went through. I also think it has something to do with the vitamins I’ve been taking for my hair and nails. But whatever it is, HALLELUJAH! I’m obsessed.
It is SO COLD OUTSIDE. Negative to single digit degree temperatures should not even be possible. Like why do we live here again? I don’t know. I ask myself this daily in the winter. Since it is 0 degrees outside and the wind doesn’t know how to handle itself, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up and the temperature in here was stuck at 65. We have the heat set above 70 but since we live in an apartment inside of an older home, the windows let the frigid cold air inside. It’s lovely. Oh but wait, can we talk about how we had to go to the grocery store yesterday afternoon and how I LITERALLY got blown away by that wind? I mean come onnnn now. Can’t a girl just walk into the grocery store without getting shoved by the wind?! It is a beast. I did however brave it to get a picture of THIS SKY!!! It may have been negative degrees outside but this sky was absolutely gorgeous!
I’ve been seeing stories on Instagram from obé and their trainers in the studio with post it notes on the mirror filled with positive affirmations. I love this idea, especially since it just so happens that whenever I look in the mirror I am most likely saying something rude to myself and not something amazing (and true) like: I can do hard things, I am worthy, today will be a good day, today I choose to be happy, etc. TRY IT! I am ALL FOR positive affirmations! Start speaking LIGHT into your life and remind yourself WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST! (You are worthy, you are beautiful, you are holy, you were fearfully and wonderfully made!) If you need more, email more, DM me, whatever you wanna do!
Michael has a doctors appointment later today for his knee. He tore his meniscus and has been having some bumpy times between his knee and his mouth. But, since he has been eating vegan this month and going to physical therapy he says that his knee has been feeling better than it was before. I am still praying that the Lord heals him completely with no pain anywhere! I believe it!
And because I can’t go a blog post without sharing my workouts with you all, this morning started with a quick 20 minute run on the treadmill, then two obé classes: sweat circuit and define sculpt. I was pretty much yelling the whole entire hour of those classes, especially when it was time to put the ankle weights on during sculpt. Here’s a little tip for ya: it kind of helps to yell, grunt, curse, whatever you gotta do to stay in it and embrace the burn…hahahaha. You gotta do what you gotta do!
Now, go LIVE YOUR LIFE! Let’s be happy and be kind to each other (and yourself) today. And as always, thank you so much for reading my blog, I appreciate and love you! Xoxo
