Life has been beyond chaos lately. I talked about it before…how we moved from my home, my most favorite place to somewhere I just don’t love. It’s really hard being here especially when you feel like a fish out of water, like you just don’t belong. And part of what doesn’t help is the fact I’m probably fighting off some depression. I’ve hinted at the fact of life not being the kindest to me the past few years and it’s starting to take it’s toll emotionally. Luckily, I have my husband, kids, and family back home helping me through. So to anyone out there going through a tough time…I feel ya and am sending all of you some love.
Listening to Lately
So much good music. But before I dive into this list…I am a country girl at heart. I appreciate all music but country is where my heart is. This is currently my jam, this song gives me all the feels, and this one is just because it’s hilarious and I love Bobby Bones…as previously stated many, many times. If you’re looking for an album to love on check out this one by Lindsay Ell. Every song is amazing.
My reading list is epically long. I have about 10 books at the house to read. And there’s probably 20 or so more on my amazon wishlist. I just finished this book and it is a great read. I will be doing a review and giveaway later this week or next. So be on the lookout for that. I’m getting ready to dive head first into this book and also have this one and this one to read. And yes, I think I do have a giant girl crush on Brene Brown. Her words just seem to speak to my soul.
My yoga mat is my best friend right now which you can grab here. I also have started using resistance bands in my workouts and really like them. Just a simple way to challenge yourself a little when working out.
Non workout related loves…this shampoo and conditioner. It’s my jam. LOVE it. Plus it makes my hair smell like the beach which is an added bonus. And this collagen is everything. I’ve been using it for a solid three months now and noticed a huge difference in my skin, hair, and nails. My nails seem to grow at super speed these days. I’ll be doing a post on it soon but thought I’d go ahead and give it a shout out here.
Food has not been my friend as of late. I went from eating really clean, meaning good, whole foods and minimally processed stuff to eating my feelings to now, finally getting back on the whole foods train. And yes, my body let me know it was hating life when I was eating processed. I am loving these dark chocolate espresso cups from Hail Merry for when I have a serious sweet tooth. These pumpkin pie overnight oats are taking over my breakfasts and I can’t wait to make these for the kids.
