Big 8 for this guy today!
It was a busy weekend w ALL the activities — a 5km run, basketball practice, bday party with friends, rock climbing, movies with friends, family dinner and a raps game.
IT WAS A LOT.
Luckily, we nixed basketball practice and rock climbing and stayed in for a day bath and played with some bday presents.
Nige asked for a day bath after his 5km run(walk-jog). He knows when he's run down and is learning more when to slow down. He soaked in this bath yesterday for a good hr, until he pruned. I pumped him full all the natural remedies I know and he made it through his bday party. He woke up this morning happy as can be ready for his actual bday. .
This kid gets run down, but he sure knows how to party.

While I'm waiting for a gallery to finish saving and uploading, I'm stealing some me time.
I haven't had a single moment where I could breathe in weeks, much less read and I've been craving that time.
I feel like I've gone through so many transformations and emotional growth spurts since the spring that it's not even funny. Some have taken longer than others, there were a few that I fought tooth and nail but then there were more than a I can count that I welcomed with open arms.
I'm finally getting to an alright place mentally, I only say alright because I'm still adjusting to working two full time jobs 5 consecutive days a week and it's testing me but I will get through it. The exhaustion is hard but being in a financial bind is much harder, I refuse to go back to where we were or stay where we are now. Balance is my biggest hurdle right now, trying to find the balance between working as much as I need to for my family while actually being there for my family, I usually only see my kids for a half hour in the morning when I'm getting them ready for school and when I get home after midnight they're already in bed. And on top of it I have my two businesses still and of course i have fallen behind in my orders and editing, once I catch up I will be restructuring the businesses to fit my current work schedule but for now I'm left feeling horrible for not having enough time to get it all done.
However, I'm extremely grateful for everything, I'm thankful for my jobs- I'm asked daily how I can smile and continue to be kind when others aren't treating me kindly and it's because I'm grateful that I am working and supporting my family, I'm thankful for busy seasons with my businesses, I'm thankful for my husband who is just as hard working and takes incredible care of our children when I'm not able to be home, I'm grateful for the amazing blessings that we have received lately, the quiet that we have worked towards and found by elimination toxic relationships and negative people from our lives.
If I want to eat my pie 🥧 and enjoy it too you bet I’m going to be pressing play for 30min.
Truth be told I had planned to take the weekend off between challenges but seeing other challengers and coaches showing up made me show up! And there’s NEVER a workout i regret.
So, did you show up for yourself this weekend
If not, why What’s stopping you Is it worth more than feeling confident in your favorite jeans or being able to enjoy everything the Holidays have to offer without guilt Is it worth more than losing those last pesky pounds
There’s ALWAYS a reason to put something off, so if you’re waiting for the “perfect time” you’ll always be waiting and just watching & wishing (that was me for about 8 months). So I’m here to tell you it’s time to stop ✋ with the excuses and pitty party and put a stake in the ground to MAKE IT HAPPEN! 👊🏼 It doesn’t take hours but simply 30 minutes. THIRTY minutes! I bet you just spent 30 min scrolling FB, so don’t tell yourself you don’t have the time 😉
