Happy Friday, or I should say FriYAY!
So as I stated last week we are going to do a little fun and fitness link up here every Friday, if you missed the post you can catch up on the main mission right here!
This has been an awesome week for me! I started a cleanse last Friday which really the only "rule" of the cleanse was absolutely NO caffeine. So no Sweet Tea, no iced coffee, no soda. Which all of that was really good because I saved money by no daily Starbucks trips, I quit soda completely, and I drank a CRAP ton of water which is something I have always been horrible at.
The cleanse went well. I ate 6 small meals throughout the day. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as 2 snacks and really did not even work out because I am trying to get eating right down first as this is my BIGGEST downfall.
So as for my results...I lost 7 pounds! Just by cutting out soda, eating right, and taking the cleanse 2x a day for 7 days. 7 pounds is a small number in my grand scheme of 50 pounds, but it's almost 10% of my goal in one week. I get most of it is water weight and that I need to start my workout regimen this week to keep up with my progress. I am just excited because all know that "diets" suck and falling off the wagon happens QUITE often (at least for me) but this early success was just extra motivation to keep trucking and keep making progress!
Hopefully next week I'll have some progress pictures to share!
If you are interested in the cleanse I did you can purchase it at Complete Nutrition or from their online shop, here!
So how did your week go? Big goals? Little Goals? Progress or a fall back? We are all in this together and the only thing we should all bring to the table is to try our best and encourage one another!
If you would like to share your journey with me (and others) I would love for you to link up a blog post, an Instagram feed, or just maybe even one Instagram picture to share your progress with us!
***I was experiencing an issue with my account to create a proper link up. While I work on the problem please leave your link in the comments below** Sorry for the inconvenience I will have it fixed by next week. ****
Snail mail is like my love language.
I love handwritten notes, cards, and of course, packages.
Sometimes I choose to buy stuff online JUST so I can anticipate the arrival. It's weird, I know.
So anytime I find a new subscription box service I am ALL about it.
If you are not aware of what a subscription box service is, it is a monthly box shipped directly to your doorstep and it is usually filled with 3-6 special gifts that relate to that month.
There are clothing, makeup subscription boxes, boxes designated to babies and dogs, but there is one box I recently found that kind of just rounds all the bases and fills my Mama heart.
Hello! Bliss Box is a monthly subscription box designed to celebrate woman and MOMS. Yes, they embrace motherhood and fill the box with items they know that Mamas will LOVE.
I received my first box in July, and let me tell you, I LOVED it all. The gifts were vibrant, colorful, upbeat, and things I will actually use! There was jewelry, there was home decor, there was uplifting messages, there were kid safe products, and the best part of it all is they partner with small shops and small entrepreneurs to fill these boxes. So not only are you getting a great deal, you are supporting small businesses!
