  • My first time vending with @supermomculture at @craftsavvymarket today. I had so many moments leading up to today that I told myself that it would be a lot easier to just quit and not have a both.  But then I thought, if it was easy, everyone would be doing it.  Just remember when you have an idea that starting is half the battle.  It won’t be easy but it can be done! Thank you @craftsavvymarket for having me today.  Mr and the girls helped out so much. Thank you to everyone that came by to support! I have no clue who the little girl is on the left but she stayed with us the whole day.
  • And another ☝🏾. My precious babies. How did Harper grow up so fast! She looks 6! Slow down baby! #pictureday

Time flies! I’m still desperately trying to fit back in it! My goal for 2020!
  • Fall school pics are in and Peyton made mama proud! Low key annoyed they cut off her beautiful puff. It’s good to see all my hard work taking pics for the blog have paid off in these school pics. picture day hack: stick to a tried and true hair style. I tried something diff once and Peyton looked like Kid from Kid n Play. I didn’t even order any. Don’t do it!

Real talk from start to finish. I’ll share my takeaways on my stories later but @cantubeauty commitment to insuring we take action and holding us accountable is what I needed.  Time is up for going to events and not taking action.  I’m ready! 📷 @daynabolden. Hat from #targetstyle Jeans #fashionova

  • Nobody:
Me: Let me clean out all my kitchen cabinets along with everything else going on 😆. I actually enjoy decluttering (my spaces, not others). Swipe ->. My mind feels at peace when spaces are clean and organized.  Ever since @pinchofhelp did my master bathroom, I’ve been on a mission.  I’m not good like her but I stalk her IG daily for all her tips and before & afters.  My kitchen is (almost) ready for Thanksgiving! Please send positive vibes on the rest of the projects we have going on 🙏🏿. Details on the blog. Link in profile #heytrinashome #babyshopahome
  • Doing a mini extreme home makeover just in time for the holidays! Shout out to Mr for speaking my love language and getting ish done in the house (wife porn as @snackswithjack calls it 😆). This past wknd he knocked out our 20ft foyer and hung my new chandelier! It was like watching the Berlin Wall come down 🙌🏾. Also thankful that we didn’t have any incidents on this scaffold 😓. I was so happy when they picked it up cuz my nerves were so bad. We still have a lot more to do but we’re chipping away.  Make sure you watch my stories for updates.
  • Peyton as Cecilia from Decendants. Instead of a wig I used a clip in ponytail.  I may use it in the future for myself if I’m feeling feisty. She went to school as Run DMC because she was unsure if they could dress up or not.  Can your kids dress up at school?

5 Tips to Help You Stay Motivated to Keep Working Out

January 27, 2017

I wanted to check in with my fitness and weight loss update.  So far I’m down 9 pounds since January 2nd!  *Hits the Dougie*  I can’t believe it!  It hasn’t been easy.  I’ve been hitting the gym 3 to 4 times a week and spending a lot of time prepping my meals.  It’s so worth it!  I still have another 15 pounds I would like to shed.  We’re closing out the first month of the year and some of your are ready to ditch your weight loss goals.  I wanted to share with you a few things that give me a reset button for staying in the weight loss game.

  1.  Update your playlist.  Buying new music always pumps me up for working out.  Get you some new Drake, 2 Chainz, or Taylor Swift.  A little ratchet music never hurt anybody.
  2. Try a new class.  I love my regular classes, but sometimes it’s good to switch it up to shock the body.  I’m looking forward to trying Soul Cycle even though I know I can’t hang.  I’ll just pick a bike in the dark corner.  I also plan to try Pure Barre.  Also, check out Groupon and Living Social for discounted fitness classes.
  3. Buy a new workout fit.  Who doesn’t like new clothes?  I try to add a new piece of workout clothes every few weeks.  I’m excited to hit the gym because I know I have something cute to wear.  Fabletics, Old Navy, and Walmart have super cute workout clothes.
  4. Make a friend.  I’m a very social person so I never meet a stranger.  Get to know people at the gym.  I’m not saying get all weird and stalker’ish.  But if you see the same person a few times in the class, maybe break the ice and ask how long have they been coming or what other classes do they take.  This could lead to having an accountability partner.
  5. Try new recipes.  Since I’ve been doing a lot of cooking I’m starting to get bored with my meals.  I decided to search for some new and tasty recipes.  Instead of picking up some hot wings, I’ve been scouring Pinterest to find new meals.

These small things My weight loss journey hasn’t been perfect but I’m not giving up.  These small tips help to keep me going.  I’ll share more details on exactly what I’m doing and progress photos soon.

What gets you motivated and recharged to keep going?  Please share in the comments.
