Anniversary celebration tonight.  Clearly a cheat night 馃樄
Due to work and family stuff it was hard to make time for exercise the past 2 weeks.  I've been squatting...per usual as I think you know by now #operationfitthick #operationlosethebellykeepthebooty 馃樄
I've been hired for a 2nd job.  My day time job but after-hours as well now so I need to kick my butt into gear so I don't lose myself as I make that 馃挵馃槣
Monday we will begin another round of #fmd and I am 100% committed to kick butt this time around and knowing it will end the day before my physical is major #inspiration

Delicious arugula and spinach salad for dinner tonight with grilled chicken.  I didn't eat much today so I added croutons and bacon crumbles (and because I'm bout that life) with my usual sunflower and chia seeds.
This has become our lazy meal and I love that this is what we're doing instead of frozen quick fixes, take out, or fast food!
Our new go to dressing = Newman's Own Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette 馃い

I haven't posted in a few days...things have been nuts.  I haven't been as active as I'd like but continue to make (mostly) #healthychoices  in regards to meals 
Went to a summit at work regarding resiliency and wellness #lovedit ... reminded me that I need to focus on me...tomorrow's a new day and I will get #backontrack 
Tonight I created this #glutenfree apple cinnamon bread with homemade apple topping 
Oh. My. Goodness. 馃い

Beautiful day for 馃崕 and blueberry picking
Today's exercise= exploring the orchards and carrying over 20 pounds of apples around lol 
Confidently rocked a crop top which  is usually reserved for date night w/ a cute jacket or button down but today I let go of insecurities and rocked it #nonscalevictory 
Back to reality tomorrow 馃槙 
Hoping to keep positive as I was super burnt out prior to vacation...here's to blocking out negativity...wish me luck! 馃崁馃馃徏

#latergram #staycation is almost over! It's been restful and stress free (aside from the not being able to sleep thing the other night). Spending time with my nieces always recharges me and clearly I needed some girl time with their mother as we stayed up until 1 am chatting 馃槼 (yup the night i couldn't sleep...maybe I was over charged 馃樄).
My focus has been surrounding myself with things and people that make me happy (unfortunately I didn't see all of the beautiful people I wanted to see but I don't need a vacation to make that happen so it's not the end of the world!)
Everyday I help others professionally and  also personally by trying to be there for my loved ones.  I was getting tired.  I started #lenesjourney to focus on me and help myself.  I tell others regularly to ensure they're taking care of themselves to be able to care for others and it was time to listen to myself.  It is time to focus on me so I can listen to my body and listen to my heart.  #mindbodysoul 
Anywho...So...what's with the picture?! Well, my niece has been asked to downsize her Barbie collection and her first choices were her mother's fav doll Lucille Ball (it was her doll when she was a kid) and this guy?! She wanted to toss @jordanknightofficial?! My heart broke.  This is the doll I wanted when I was her age and instead I was given Brandon from 90210 馃樄I might still be a little bitter 馃樄 he's missing his ring and long braided rat tail but for a doll made in 1990 he's in great shape (note the abs) 馃樄#icrackmyselfup #nkotb #80sbaby #90skid

#emotionalpostwarning:
Hanging out with my Av贸 today (grandmother in 馃嚨馃嚬). As I get older, it's hard to think about what getting older means for her.  She is one of the strongest, kindest people I've been blessed to meet and I can't think of anything better to do besides sit with her quietly watching Univision and crocheting.  Unfortunately, Av贸 is no longer able to crochet with me but it brings a smile to her face when I'm doing it. 
I cherish the time I have with her as I am unsure as to how much longer we'll have together.  She was recently admitted to hospice care at home as this is what she wants and my mother has dropped her life to ensure that my grandmother remains at home as this is her wish. 
2 inspiring women who will never fully understand what they mean to me. #heroes 
The gym can wait today.
And a positive so I'm not just a #debbiedowner...#nonscalevictory I CAN CROSS MY LEGS! still a little uncomfortable but I can do it! Yes! #thickthighssaveslives

Confession time: I'm more than half way through my #staycation and I've been slacking big time on my water intake.  I've had far too much coffee and soda and need to kick my butt into gear. 
#progressnotperfection I've been doing better than pre-fitness journey commitment in May '17 but I need to get #backontrack sooner rather than later! 馃嵒 here's to meeting my water goals! Realistically I want to do at least 4 of these a day (approximately 100 oz as I fill past the 24 oz line)
I've only been having about 2 a day and that is far from enough 馃槼#stayhydrated
