Ok, so is anyone else freaking out over the fact that it’s November?
The Hallmark Christmas movies may have my spirit ready for all things Christmas but my wallet is soooo not ready yet. This literally happens to me every year. Why do all of my friends and family have to have birthdays right before Christmas?!
But enough about my financial woes. Let’s wrap up October!
Shocked? Yeah, didn’t think so.
I actually have yet another pumpkin recipe coming your way soon, so don’t think that just because October is over that I’ve finished up with pumpkin. Not so! That being said I am trying really hard to branch out and have purchased quite a few acorn squash recently, so there may be something in the works there! 😉
Or any hot drink really.
This tea in particular was given to me by my co-worker and ohmygosh was it amazing. I was actually pretty sad that I only had one bag of it! Quick note to any tea companies out there looking for someone to review their products – I VOLUNTEER AS TRIBUTE!
No but really – give me all the tea right now. I brew myself a mug to sip during my 6am class while I coach then typically brew up another mug when I get home around 10am and another in the early afternoon. Sippin’ it allllll day long.
Again, this probably isn’t very shocking.
Side Note – that Wild Friend’s Pumpkin Spice PB is ahhhmazing. You guys should find it, buy it and consume it by the jar. Seriously.
To buy Christmas gifts
As I mentioned above, I am going to be spending a lot of money the next few months on gifts so I may as well start now to spread out the amount of money that is going to be sucked out of my bank account. $300 over two months is much easier on my heart than $300 all in one day. And that is just a rough estimate by the way – I’ll probably end up going way over that amount.
Maybe what I really need is to get another job…
Remember This – NF
Yeah, don’t take opinions from people that won’t listen to yours
If money’s where you find happiness, you’ll always be poor
If you don’t like the job you have, then what do you do it for?
The cure to pain isn’t something you buy at liquor stores, nah
The real you is not defined by the size of your office
The real you is who you are when ain’t nobody watchin’
You spend your whole life worried about what’s in your wallet
For what? That money won’t show up in your coffin
This entire CD has pretty much been on repeat since it came out in early October but this song in particular hit me and made me really think. I actually got chills the first time I heard it. So good.
anything with burpees
Let me know if you try this – my shoulders were on fiyahhh by the end!
People often ask me why I love burpees so much and I think I’ve finally figured it out. At first I thought it was because I love the feeling of being exhausted – a good workout to me is one that leaves me flat out on the floor trying to catch my breath, which burpees clearly do.
But then it hit me – I love burpees because they never get easier.
My goal whenever I workout is to always challenge myself. I never want to walk out of the gym and think, “Wow, that was pretty easy” because what a waste of time that would be! Burpees not only work the entire body but they also challenge the mind – I have to mentally push past the block in my head that tells me I can’t do another rep.
Being able to push past that block is what makes me crave burpees – it’s that feeling of accomplishment and achievement of doing something I didn’t think I would be able to do.
Time with Little Sissy
There’s a lot of crap in this world, guys.
There’s a lot of loss, a ton of anger and far too much hate. Sometimes it gets really overwhelming for me and it makes me feel anxious, hopeless and lost. I honestly wish I could fully express to you guys how much it physically hurts me to even turn on the news anymore – my heart just can’t take much more of this world.
Which is where this little ginger comes in.
Little Sissy is such a light – even when I’m feeling my lowest I can’t help but smile when I’m around her.
It’s funny, I always thought that moving here was so that I could be a part of my siblings lives and impact them in a positive way but in fact the opposite has ended up being true. I guess the reality is that they never really needed me – but I always needed them.
The sky is not the limit; I am.
I quite literally might get this tattooed on my body. What better a statement to have than this one permanently inked?
The only real stumbling block that I’ve ever had in life has been myself – my own fears, insecurities and lack of faith. If I could just get out of my own way, there really would be nothing to stop me.
The trick of course, is figuring out how to get to that point.
