Happy Monday kids. Let’s do this thing.
A new week, new goals to crush, more coffee to drink.
One of the things I’m seeing tonight as I write this is one of my posts from 2 years ago is trending in the top two spots on Google search…..go. me.
Single Ingredient Diet
Yeah so that’s kinda nice. People wanna read me and I like to think I have positive words to offer up, along with a dose of sassy humor. 😉 you can check this post out later.
Speaking of humor…..
You may have seen the Target dress challenge on social media. Basically Target launched this line of dresses they were like, apparently serious about.
They look like left over Little House on the Prairie wardrobe pieces. Ankle length frocks, quite lovely.
Frumpy? Oh yes.
Man repellant? Most definitely.
Wearing these dresses makes you look like you’re ready for a long day on the farm preparing for a locust invasion.
But wait… I was eating at a local restaurant the other day and they have a gift shop with all kinds of goodies in it. Imagine my horror when I saw this…..is everyone getting on board with this??
And the ones behind it weren’t much better…trust me.
When it comes to fashion like this, I’m always glad that I’m out here doing my own thing.
Oh yeah..my own thing. Wanna see?
Decided to start my new year with a fun flare. 🖤
Shades of pink, but most rose gold, I love the mix of it all and nicknamed it my Neapolitan hair.
The main factor is that I love it, but after that, the fact others like it is cool too.
A girl checking me in at my dr appt commented on it….
“Love your hair! Kudos to you for being so bold and doing it”
I thanked her, but here’s the deal.
It doesn’t take much for me to be bold and adventurous. But really, I love doing things that please me, and that is usually something outside the box.
Can I suggest that if you’ve pondered doing something, why not do it? What’s holding you back?
If this past year has taught me anything, live life, even if it is diving into rosegold hair.
Do what makes you happy and brings you joy.
Ever notice how life can randomly point things out to you? 😅
The truth of this hits deep
Teasing aside, I am thankful and grateful for every year I’ve lived, even if there are days that are harder or a body that wants to go rogue, I am thankful for the years I’ve lived.
In other news..
The month is almost over and there has been of course, the push for people wanting to get back to exercise and “get in shape”.
If you’re in that boat, you aren’t alone! I think during this past year so many have gotten out of a normal routine or have been sidetracked by the weird turns of life.
My simple suggestion to get back in the groove? Get out for 30 minutes.
Take 30 minutes to do something that moves you, that makes you feel alive and refreshed. Can’t do 30? Make it 20, but make it count.
If I’m short on time and decide to do 20 minutes on the rower or elliptical, I pedal down and go all out in those 20 minutes and believe me, it’s a solid workout that works me.
Life is hard. Exercise helps.
Food. Food helps too.
I thought I’d share a salad I made with you during the holidays. I used greek yogurt in place of the sour cream for a lighter healthy swap.
And cold weather is often perfect soup weather. Try this Stuffed Pepper soup, it’s a family favorite!
Alright kids, that’s a wrap in my ramblings. Do something good for yourself this week and while you’re at it, do something for someone else too.
Tell me, how’s the week gone? Have you done something for yourself a little different or fun?
