A total mommy makeover

So I thought I would catch you up on whats starting TODAY...

For the past few weeks I have been super busy, and with that comes bad eating habits, and not alot of time for me. Now I realize being a working mama there will not always be time for me.. but I need to make sure that my every second if not consumed by that tiny little princess of mine. I need to take some time out now and then for my marriage... as well as time for just me.... and a girls night every one in a while!

So I have decided to take the next month to try and start some new habbits, and refresh myself.

Some of the things I plan on doing may be cheesy but they are my choices of things i want to include in my me time.. I don't want to full in the frumpy mom rut, now and then I HAVE to change out of my VS yoga pants, and put some skinny jeans and heels on.

This month I plan to get back on track with my diet as well as

Doing a juicing detox diet for a week
mani/pedi {even if done at home}
Tanning { While I do enjoy a bit of color this is mainly due to a skin condition that will clear after a few weeks of tanning, otherwise it causes very itchy, red skin}
New hair {next friday}
Crest whitestrips
running more
girls night now and then
try for a date night once a week w/a babysitter
cutting out fried/greasy food
cooking more meals at home {mostly new recipes}

I will keep updating as much as I can on my progress

This my friend, is pretty amazing. I love this and I think its a brilliant idea. I started something similar once Troy was born (white strips, hair done) and I just recently sorta started it back up again. Im also committing to running more since I loved it before I was preggers

Good for you! As moms we all need to make sure to take time for ourselves!

That sounds great! Everyone needs to take time out for their self! A good bible study book you should get is called "Living a Life of Balance". It is an amazing study, and it's week by week, and doesn't take too much time out of your day but it really helps! :) Keep up with your me time!

My sister's a married mom of two, so I get how crazy things can get! It sounds like you're all about balance :)
