Happy girls are the prettiest girls


Monday's motivation

Happy Monday, lovelies! I hope your weekends were full of sunshine, flowers and cute little bebes like little Miss Sadie down there. Still completely head over heels in love with this doggy. She's the best thing, ever. 
The weather is definitely heating up and promising to roast us a bit here in Northern California this week and next. The forecast says 80s and 90sF, should be killer. I will be happy to get my workouts in early so I am not more of a sweat fest than normal. I really hate evening workouts because I come up with a million excuses why I shouldn't do them. Mornings, my biggest challenge is just getting up and out the door before my brain can fully realize what is happening. 
Noticing a trend? I fell off the healthy wagon awhile back, and I need to kick my bum in gear now. I am still sabotaging myself on a regular basis with mindless eating and too much time on the couch, but I am working on it. Sadie is helping. She enjoys her 15 minute walks several times a day, which gets me moving and enjoying the outdoors. I also did something active every weekday last week, including runs with my running group, a hike, and a Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 workout, which I am still feeling, 3 days later. That woman is ridiculously talented at making a "simple" workout devastatingly effective, or at least painful later on. 
I then canceled out my workout by making a funfetti cake. Thankfully I took it over to Billy's folks' house and shared with the family, then left it there. Had it come home with me, you know I would have been having cake for breakfast, lunch, snack, and dessert. I am bad like that. Gotta just get all of the junk out of sight, so it can {hopefully} be out of mind.
How real is this, am I right?!

Now hop on over to Meg's for Mingle Monday!


  1. I love this post and I love this motivation...and I totally agree with the ECard--cake going straight to my boobs would be the best situation EVER. Happy Monday!

  2. Love all the positive energy here!!!

  3. Stopping in from Mingle Monday, and I love your motivation! Except my boobs are big enough... Maybe it can put volume in my hair instead. :) Also, gotta say I love the balloon picture in your header!


You just made my day!
