I just can't tell you how awesome it felt to stay in town today!  It was productive on a work level in multiple ways AND I was able to work out!

After getting the kids to school, it was time for some "me" time, waxing!  One day I'll be able to enjoy some fun spa services, but for today I was happy to get all beautified. Nothing makes a face look better than a good eyebrow wax, this applies to guys too.  No uni brows please!
Getting ready to be waxed.  Ouch.  No really, it's not that bad & the result is so worth it.  Just remember...there's no such thing as natural beauty ;).  I wanted to take a pic of my cute esthetician, Courtney, but I thought she'd think that was a little too bizarre. Check out that itsy bitsy little bikini on the table.  She and I chatted about Cornhuskin'.  Any Meredith Alum out there?

I love an Aveda salon!  Do you?
After working out 30 minutes on Precore.  I couldn't believe how much my fitness level decreased after missing working out for 3 days!  Working out was really a struggle tonight.  Still loved it though.  It feels great to do something so healthy!

I need to delete some cookies...Nila Wafers in fact.  I mean really though, doesn't it make more sense to eat  super yummy chocolate chip cookies all warm & gooey, than a nila wafer.  Just doesn't seem worth it.  
I have become way too comfy in this new healthy lifestyle, bad habits are starting to creep back in....time for some self correcting baby!  I find it so easy to go back to my self indulging, lazy ways, especially after an emotionally stressful week.  Can you say emotional eating?
(BTW, this super cute owl necklace in the picture can be purchased at Target.)
I can't let the kitchen, my emotions, argument or stress ruin what I really want.  Time to step up my game and get serious again. I won't wait until the morning or next meal for that matter.  The time to start is now.  Now is my new beginning!  My weigh in days are Mondays and I always try to finish the week strong, so off I go!

I love these lyrics!  Really inspires me.

"The glow that the sun gives
Right around sunset
Helps me realize
This is just a journey
Drop your worries
You are going to turn out fine
Oh, you'll turn out fine.

I know it's hard,
know it's hard,
To remember sometimes,
But you gotta keep your head up,
oh oh
And you can let your hair down,
eh eh

....the skeptics mess with the confidence in my eyes.

I'm seeing the angles,
starts to get tangled
I start to compromise
My life and the purpose
It it all worth it
Am I gonna turn out fine?
Oh, you'll turn out fine."

Love you guys.  You keep me accountable

Have a great weekend!

Take care,


    1. Cat, love your cookie monster cartoon - too cute! I also like your "now is my new beginning" statement too! It's so true that no matter how long we've been on a food plan it's always important to re-access and change things up to keep us accountable & motivated! I think you handled a stressful week rather well!

    2. Cat, you are too cute! Love your blogs and your inspiration and yes I agree no uni brows please! I have had my eyebrows waxed a couple of times and not to painful at all. Enjoy your week!

    3. Great post Cat! Although Id rather get a facial or massage than get waxes :) Getting in the right place mentally is almost the whole battle!
