Camel Coat and Ripped Jeans

Every year around this time, people start talking about New Year’s resolutions. Then there are of course, plenty of people who have realized their resolutions never stick, so they’ve quit making them altogether. I personally like to think about self-improvement often, and the New Year is as good of a time than any to do it. For me, one area I am always trying to improve on is health and fitness. When I am really consistent about my workouts, I am so much happier because not only do I look better physically, but my mind is clear and I have tons of energy. I recently read an article about building better habits that pretty much blew my mind. The gist of it is, we all have a finite amount of willpower – it is like a muscle that can fatigue, so in order to maintain whatever it is we are hoping to maintain, we need to make it a habit so it  that we don’t need to use up our valuable willpower to do it, whether that goal is to eat right, work out, sleep more, or anything else you could possibly imagine. The key is to do it consistently, without giving yourself the chance to slip back into your old ways. You also have to understand why you are doing it, so you have a real underlying reason for actually keeping it up. Sounds pretty simple right? And I’m a big fan of simple. What are some of your resolutions??

About the look: I’ve been on the lookout for a wool camel colored coat for a while now, and when a friend sent me a pic of this one which was on major sale, I just couldn’t not get it. It comes with a removable leather dickey that I am currently wearing, which I think makes it a little edgier. I’m wearing a size 2 and it fits perfectly.

Tom’s 50th birthday was all that and a bag of chips! Thanks to our amazing friends and family for making this milestone so special. The cake almost burned the house down with all those candles 😉 but we survived! Happy birthday to my @tom_sandberg! Love you! You didn’t peak in the 90’s you’re still out here getting cuter! ❤️ #birthdayparty #90sparty

Friday mood…
Join me while I gather eggs and check what’s growing in my veggie garden🪴 🐓 Veggie update: Currently my zucchini is slowing down (praise the Lord! 🙏🏾)Tomatoes are slowly but surely ripening, I have a bed of sweet potatoes and yellow onion, and some butternut squash, eggplant, and bell peppers, and one pumpkin so far! Cucumbers had a moment early summer but seem to be done now. I also tried to do grapes but they were a fail. Every year in the garden is an experiment and a learning experience! #veggiegarden #chickencoop
I like big blooms and I cannot lie! 🌸 🥰 #hydrangeas
Ratatouille with a side of air fryer chicken and some crusty bread 🤌🏾 I called it ‘lazy girl’ Ratatouille but ‘busy girl’ would have been more accurate - because you save a lot of time by cooking the eggplant, zucchini, and peppers separately. Easy, fast, and fresh - give it a try! #dinnerideas
5 years old and already way too cool for mommy!
