Friday Confessional 10.2.15

Good morning, lovelies!

Confession is good for the soul, so grab the button and let it all out. You'll feel better when you're finished.

I confess...

This week has been non-stop, and I don't feel like I've accomplished anything except for force-feeding my puppy antibiotics and getting packed my try trip to New Orleans. Fortunately, Roscoe seems to be feeling much better. He's not 100%, but I'd have a hard time leaving town if he was still as sick as he was Monday morning.

I confess...

By the time this post goes live, I should be well on the road. In my opinion 800+ mile drives go more smoothly when you get on the road early. I am also a believer that if I have to drive through a rush hour, I'd rather do that at the end of my trip than the beginning. Fortunately, I don't expect any rush hour traffic tomorrow.

I confess...

I may be sucker for homeless baby animals. We discovered the other day that I'm just not capable of ignoring a crying baby animal. Because of this, I rescued three baby squirrels on Tuesday.

Don't worry. I took them to a wildlife center; unlike puppies and kittens, I have no interest in learning to raise squirrels.

I confess...

I swear I need to get myself to the post office. I have gifts from August that are still waiting to be mailed. With work only getting busier from here, I really need to get on it.

I confess...

My sweet nephew is NOT this grown up already.

Excuse me while I go cry.....Make him stop growing! #stillmybaby

Yesterday, our conversation went like this:
Him: "You're my best friend."
Me: "Aww, you're my best friend."
Him: "And Unkin Davin [Uncle David aka my Mister] is my best friend, too."
Me: "No way; he's my best friend."
Him: "He's both our best friend."

I just love that child.

Fit for Me Thursdays: Workout Must Haves

Hi friends!

#FitforMeThursdays is a linky hosted every other Thursday by Health Not to NutBurke Does and She is Joyful to help motivate each other to stay on track with our health and fitness goals.

This week's theme is workout must haves. Last week as part of my post about fitness fashion, I mentioned several must haves such as good running shoes and my Fitbit. So, I'm going to talk about a few other things I need to make my fitness habits successful.


This year, I've really been trying to make sure that I stay hydrated; normally, I try to drink at least 64 ounces. On workout days, I aim for another 48 ounces.

Dry Shampoo and Facial Wipes

As my schedule gets busier, it's more important than ever than I get into jujitsu when I can for a workout; It helps with my stress levels. I'm more productive at work, but as gross as it sounds, there isn't always time for a shower. Thank goodness for dry shampoo and facial wipes to deal with the sweat and make my hair smell good.

Skin Treament

As soon as I get home, I do get myself in the shower. My mother-in-law and her sister work in skincare, and they have spent a bit of time and money helping me learn to take proper cate of my skin. I make a point to get out of my workout clothing as soon as I'm done. I exfoliate and use body wash specifically for acne treatment because there's no getting around the fact the sweating can gunk up your pores. Also, sunscreen everyday. Everyday.

Dit Da Jow

This is topical solution we make with vodka and Chinese herbs. It can be rubbed into a bruise to help break up the clotted blood. It can also help relieve soreness if you tweak a joint or overstressed the muscles. I believe helps improve circulation, and between the bruises I come home with and tendonitis in my elbow, Jow is a lifesaver in our house.
