Self-care is a big part of being “healthy”, and it’s definitely been on our minds during our “Total Health January“ 💪🏼💪🏼. After all, you can’t pour from an empty cup.
If you are anything like us, this can be difficult. Our first priority is family! However, it is very easy to get so wrapped up in kiddos and schedules, and homework, etc. that it’s hard to even stop to take a minute for yourself. For us, we can also easily get wrapped up in pleasing others, and putting others first. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, as long as you are taking some small moments to work on your own self 💗
We can often run ourselves ragged, putting everything else first before we take a minute for ourselves. Our challenge this month is to stop and think. What are our goals (as moms, as friends, as significant others... and as women)? What is most important to us? What are we doing each day to to take a step closer to those goals, or make sure that our needs are being met? We are all in charge of our own thoughts/emotions/happiness, so let’s take this next week to take care of ourselves! 🙌🏼💗💪🏼
Serving some serious vibes for all you 90s babies out there #scrunchiegang
I love being able to express myself through clothing in so many different ways! One day I’m a 90s baby and the next I’m a boss babe looking for new opportunities. I look at everyday like a girl with an unlimited wardrobe, you never know what kinda sass you’re gonna get😏
You don’t want to be around when the bottle explodes.

Only a #bossbitch can pull off making a béchamel sauce with no dairy (no cheese, no cream). *dusts shoulders off* 😂😂 Although I made the béchamel sauce thicker to compensate for the liquid from the zucchini, the end result wasn’t as creamy as I was hoping for. Next time, I’ll leave out the zucchini (or use dried zucchini). It’s really, really good nonetheless! Layers: white sweet potato, zucchini, ground beef (seasoned with onion, garlic, leek, & parsley) Bêchamel sauce: onion, garlic, bone broth, cauliflower, coconut milk, tapioca #iatefromthepan#whatscooking#aip#dairyfree#paleo#healthyeating#nutrients

Every day I’m dissertatin’ 📚 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Welp, they were right. Dissertation writing is brutal. Like, work for two hours for one paragraph brutal. And I mean actually WORK- no social media, no texting, no distractions (a notification-free life, what is that even?). One paragraph. Of a document that will ultimately be around 200 pages. Yikes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve found a pattern in how I handle such challenges: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
➊ Stress, preemptively.
➌ Stress about your procrastination but continue to procrastinate because starting is SCARYYYY.
➍ When your procrastination stress has resulted in high enough cortisol levels to incapacitate a small land mammal, START.
➎ Come up with a plan. Strategize. Pat yourself on the back for starting. Imagine yourself at the finish line. God, you’re so awesome #bossbitch
➏ Actually start. Get a taste of what life is going to be like every day until you accomplish this goal.
➐ OMG I WILL NEVER FINISH. I WILL FAIL. THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE *stressfully send dramatic text messages to closest friends *Google salary of professional dog walker.
➑ Quiet that panicky voice in your head, realize the only way out is through, and grind that shit out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Step 8 is where the magic happens. Writing a dissertation is like climbing Mount Everest, taking several years of coursework and data collection to even reach base camp, but I CHOSE this peak to climb. If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you. And if it doesn’t change you, then your #10yearchallenge will look exactly the same, and that would be, like, so embarrassing. Like almost as embarrassing as the painful amount of eyeliner I used to wear #glowup
