Big News. I have decided to take a leap and enter back in to the direct sales world. I have decided to partner with Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields with their skin care line – Rodan and Fields. I choose to join because I am looking for a opportunity for freedom that I do not currently have. Rodan and Fields has been sold in the US for the last few years. The american consultants have be able to do extremely well for themselves financially. Many have grown more into the women they wanted to be vs. the women they were or were told to be. I am excited to grow more myself and have a successful company at my side to do this.
These are some of the magazines that printed editorial coverage on Rodan and Fields:
I added on my list of #28before29 to run 1000km. Why in all the worlds would I put that? Well because I used to run before I blew out my knew and I would like to get back into it. I though 1000km would be easy… but it is harder than I originally thought but I am going to do as much as I can.
November: KM Ran = 0
December: KM Ran = 2.11
January: KM Ran = 6.2
February: KM Ran = 1.93 (as of today 2/5/15)
I just finished moving and I have happily found a new gym which is very clean and small which is nice. Last night was the first time I have been and I started out running for 30 minutes. I managed to make 1.93km in the 30 minutes. Which is fairly slow. I did not have my Nike+ run app working well since my phone was in my hand not in my arm band. (Could not find it #movingproblems).
I have broke down the goal with my current km run:
Distance to date: 10.24km
Distance to go: 989.76km
# of months till my birthday: 10
Distance needed to meet goal monthly: 99km/month
I think that might be a tall order but I am willing to try. Have you ever done a running challenge?? Help me stay on track!!
I have always admired the beauty of handwritten fonts, and those bloggers who had them. I am truly a font snob. I have always loved typography and how words look. You should see my Pinterest board of quotes. But I digress.
Over the past few years I have wanted to make a font of my handwriting yet I thought I would need some high tech tools. After some easy Googling and a few YouTubevideos later I find out that I can make a font with great ease. I was a bit skeptical of how the font would look but as you can see above it turned out.
First attempt was with a Sharpie Pen – Fine Point. Yet it was too thin and did not scan and translate in to a nice font.
Second attempt was with a regular black sharpie and it resulted in the font above. I want to play around with some other pens to see what results with the best font line size. I will let you all know what I find out. I am planning to do this process a second time to see if I can fix some of my letters.
Do you ever read something in news or gets posted on your timeline that gets you all fired up? I do.
I do not often express that anger or upset back out into the world but I am today.
TLDR: Love your body and yell from the roof tops how awesome your weight-loss journey is!
Huffington Post shared this on Facebook today! I am personally outraged. I have purchased the magazine SHAPE in the past but I have not read it in over a year. Not for any reason in particular but I am less inclined to read it now after this. As a fellow female who is losing weight this makes me sad. And funny enough at the bottom of the SHAPE reply on their website is:
As a human we are all entitled to our opinions and I have a huge opinion on this. I am proud of my weightloss and I honestly BRAG and tell anyone who will listen. I am not ashamed of how much I weighted before nor that I am still on my weight loss journey. Especially when it comes to dating – I see no point in hiding your successes. I was recently single after ending a 4 year long engagement. One of the first things I talked about when on dates was that my health was very important to me and that I am in the middle of a weight-loss journey.
Why did I share this? My health is number one priority to me… if I am unhealthy and overweight I am not going to be able to achieve what I want to achieve personally in life. And I need to know my potential partner is on the same page and understands that going out for high calorie fast food is not a option for me.
I am thankful everyday that the man I have in my life now is not only proud of what I have accomplished but supports my weight-loss. He is there to cheer me on and encourage me when I do not want to get my ass in the gym. He also reminded me that:
Couples who sweat together stay together…
What do you think about this? Are you losing weight? Do you share your weight-loss with others?
As I mentioned earlier today it was a terrible no good day. I am 100% and extrovert. I love people and socializing but from time to time the percentage changes to about 90% extrovert and 10% introvert. I need time to recharge my social meter. Well over the holiday’s this was over flowing!
From Friday to Sunday I did very little socializing basically taking my own time out. If I do not do this I get rather grumpy and very impatient. Ideally I needed one more day to relax but today was the first day back to work work after the holiday’s. It started off blah and carried through. I work as an EE at my local Moksha Yoga studio and I did not want to do my shift today because I had a case of the blahs and the grumps. But I knew I could not slack and went. I am ever so glad I did. I took my Moksha 60 class and in the beginning shavasana every issue and negative thing melted into the floor. It was restorative. I felt 100% better when I left class.
So much so – a good friend and fellow EE – took this shot of me practicing my dancers pose. I must always remember to take time for myself and to come to my edge and then just let it go.
Do you ever take Hot Yoga? What helps you relax and recharge after the holiday’s?
I was inspired by Sarah from The Laughing Medusa to share my #28before29 Birthday List. She had commented that she wanted to complete a 30 day yoga challenge on hers and I did that as one of my many presents to me for my 28th! So we are now 321 days till my 29th which is well enough time to make 2015 full of fun and memories.
