My husband and I had a vacation planned with my brother-in-law to go to Atlantic City but with everything going on we decided to postpone. I was really looking forward to getting away because who doesn’t need a vacation. The best part of this vacation we were only going to have one monster because lets be honest I never go to far without my littlest monster for many reasons. My husband and I talked about getting away somewhere close because he already had the time off and why not. We found a hotel close but not to close. I can tell you that Vacation has become way more of a hastle than I could have ever imagined. We wear mask and sanitize. The hastle is what is open what can we do were can we go. Checking in to the hotel has even changed this whole pandemic has made everything so impersonal. when we checked into the hotel there is glass and ropes sign in over there “please don’t get close” “please don’t touch” “use the clean pen” I hate all this Impersonal bull Sh**. I hate that people are so scared to get close or even talk to people. I really hope this Covid Bit** learns her place and goes the hell away. Here are some pictures from our trip
First off I really think that writing these recaps are helping me stay accountable. This month has been another challenging month for our family we are having a lot of changes. I have been killing the resolution game. I did great this month another 29 days of dressing even know there were days I just wanted to stay in my PJS. I am starting to feel much better about myself. My little Monsters are loving the new me. My husband and I are doing a lot better too. I am loving the new me.
I have lost 43lbs in the past 2 months I am eating very healthy. Our whole family has had a change with eating. I cut out processed food at first the little Monsters were very grumpy and hated the change. Now the little Monsters don’t mind I even see them grabbing or asking for more healthy options. The Little Monsters still crave junk food some days I give in but as a family were are learning healthy food items can taste like junk food or sometimes better. I found a recipe for 3 ingredients peanut butter cookies that has become or new favorite treat. https://barefeetinthekitchen.com/old-fashioned-peanut-butter-cookie-recipe/
Book reading this month has been a little harder I only finished 1 book. This book The Wives was amazing a little slow to start but the end made the whole book. https://www.target.com/p/the-wives-by-tarryn-fisher-paperback/-/A-77056970 I tried to read the second book to The Tattooist of Auschwitz with no luck I really tried. I could not get into it.
The first month has been a little hard. I stuck with it. I think that I am doing ok I believe I can be doing better!!!!! I did get dressed every day of Jan. The putting on makeup and doing hair is not going well I had a little trouble with the makeup. My skin has been giving me a lot of trouble I think as I am getting older my skin hates me lol.(I know that is not an excuse) I plan to do better in Feb I order all new makeup and skin care. Heres to hoping my skin will learn I am the boss lol. I am doing good with my weight loss journey so far. I know for myself that the first month is the easiest for me. The sticking with it is what kills me but what I think is different this time I know that I have to do this to show my little monsters a heathy lifestyle. I have always had trouble with emotional eating but this time I am learning it is ok to ask for help and say NO to things. My little monsters have been great at helping me out they are asking how I am doing and cheering me on. I know that is what is keeping me going.
With reading I am killing it. I read 4 books granted 3 were audio books because I am a very busy mom to 3 monsters. ( It still counts right) I listened to Rachael Hollis Girl, wash your face and Girl, Stop Apologizing. They were Amazing and very helpful I would recommend them to any and every women not to mention she is hilarious. I also listened to Stassi Schroeder’s Next Level Basic this book I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard with a book before. (Stassi if you ever read this by some crazy chance please keep writing I will buy everything you write) Please run to Target or wherever you buy your books from and get it. I promise you will thank me. The 1 book I did actually read was The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris very good read I finished it in 4 days. I am currently reading the second one to this I will update you in next months recap. I have linked all the books if you would like to read.
