As my weeks have become more hectic, there are a few things that have helped through the chaos. These are my favorite things this week.
Who doesn’t love Target already? There is one close to house I like to sneak off to and enjoy browsing items for inspiration. They have a School List Assist feature on their Web site that I used this week. P is starting Pre-K MONDAY! His school has a generic supply list and Target had it on their site. I was able to just grab the list and load into my cart, presto! There are a couple of little items left to pick up, but I’m done.
Did you also see that Target is now offering Lisa Frank pajamas for grown ups? Just take my money. I could totally wear this set and snuggle under my Scrappy Unicorn Rainbow Sprinkles quilt. Rad!
Health & Fitness
As my mileage has gone up with training, I’m reading a bit more health and fitness related articles. The topics mostly include making time and motivation. Talking about making time for exercise is not an easy conversation to have personally. I am giving up time away from other things I enjoy to help reach this goal. I’m investing in myself to make this happen. Transformation Fitness & Wellness had an article on making time this week that hit home. Read it and tell me your thoughts.
The health coach in me has to agree there is no on or off track, you are just living. Many people feel one bad thing in the day ruins the whole day and that’s not the case, especially when it comes to diet and exercise. This quote from the article because I have heard this from many people in coaching.
I was putting so much pressure on myself to be perfectly “healthy” that any slip-up, no matter how small, was seen as failure and I’d consider the whole day a loss, binging on junk food and telling myself I’d just start again fresh the next day. I was either 110% on track or 110% off the rails. ~ Pumps & Iron
We have to treat ourselves better than that. If that is your mentality, let’s chat about some ways to build your skills in that area. Check out the post here. What was your take away?
Sewing & Quilting
Quarter square log cabins are quite trendy right now. They look like great scrap busters. Have you made one? Below are links to a couple of finished quilts posted this week.
For myself I plan to start on P’s Halloween quilt. My beemates made gorgeous Halloween themed blocks and I just need to make a few more to complete the top. If time allows over the weekend, maybe even a tutorial on my improv scrappy blocks from the quilt above.
