Getting It Back Together

Hey Gang,

I realize this week has not been normal for me. Believe me, this is not who I am, nor who I want to be.

The breakdown:

  1. I’ve barely worked out
  2. I’ve barely cooked
  3. I over ate and snacked like crazy because I was stressed
  4. My waist line has suffered
  5. My mind has suffered

Finally last night I sat down and thought to myself “Okay Katie WHAT ARE YOU DOING, SNAP OUT OF IT”. Sometimes this is what you need to do. Life throws us curveballs all the time, things we feel like we can’t handle, and things that we don’t feel like dealing with. But do we stop? Nope. G-Mama knows me best and when she said something to me yesterday I brushed it off a little bit (sorry Ma). Then later I went home and thought wow, intervention needed.

It has nothing to do with the snacking, not working out, not cooking. Heck my mom would love me if I weighed 800 lbs and grabbed fast food every day of my life. It’s the fact that I am not acting myself. She knows me better than I know myself. So it’s time to stop this little pity party I have thrown for myself this past week and get Skinny Minnie MOVING!Ā 

In order to do this Phoebe will be taking a little vacation away from home so I can get my life back together. Just a few days at G-Mama and Pop Pops while mommy works and gets back in the swing of things. I often rush home from the gym and then Phoebe never gets any attention, then I feel extremely guilty. G-Mama and Pop Pop spoil my baby girl like crazy, and Shelby just loves her little sister, so a little doggy stay will do her good. I wish I could take off a few days and just GO SOMEWHERE again like I did in Portland for FitBloggin’. I felt like a new person after that trip! I felt confident and like I had the world at my fingertips. Technically I could take off work very easily, but I don’t have the money for a random trip right now.

Yesterday I managed to do 2 things.

1. Go to Wegmans and stock up on some good detox herbs and veggies

basil and mint

2. Lounge around with Phoebe all night

Sheldon makes Phoebe laugh too!

I was supposed to be in that picture, but failed miserably as a photographer.

My baby šŸ™‚

She looks so sweet and innocent right? WRONG! Before we went to G-Mama’s she went into my gym bag, pulled out my last cookie dough Quest Bar and I chased her around my kitchen (it’s a circle and the dog outsmarted the human).

Under the couch she went and I was determined to get my Quest Bar back.

not so fast


I know, this picture is pretty darn hilarious. Like I’ve said before, I don’t sit there and take a million pictures of Phoebe. I take one and this is how they turn out. She’s the silliest little thing ever!

So today I start the day with a new mindset and new goals. Tomorrow I start the work week with a fresh start and a positive attitude. Time to change things around here!

Have a great Sunday and thanks for sticking it out with me šŸ™‚

XOXO With a Cherry On Top,

    We all have those days (or weeks!) when we don’t feel ourselves. Don’t worry, things will work out for you and it will be for the better. Sometimes you need a bad week to reinvent yourself! Start next week positively and it will definitely help you feel better. All the best Tam x
