I think Ive worn these jeans for a week straight now. I love denim with stretch that you can wear over and over again before washing. These high waisted skinnies are just about perfect in my book, and uber comfy. These sandals have also been my go to sandals on the daily lately. They are just so comfy, go with everything and eassssyyyyy. Lately Ive been very into easy, like jeans and a tee (in love with wolf child's new collections). I'm loving the slight shift in weather, even though its not quite autumn feeling here in area of Texas. Still in the 90's most days. But the mornings and evenings are getting cooler and before you know it I'll have to bundle up to have my morning coffee on the porch.
Speaking of morning coffee... I'm attempting to cut back on sugar drastically. Yesterday was day one, and all I did was have one cup of coffee instead of two, and put a little less coconut palm than usual. I also didn't have toast with my breakfast, and I didn't have my mid day Lara Bar. By mid day I had a headache that lingered all day long, all night and even worse when I woke up this morning. It's crazy how much very little sugar affects us. This morning I caved and had my second cup of jo, but I am still going to try to eliminate it when possible. Instead of toast with jam along with my eggs and avocado, I'm having my sweets through fresh fruit. A simple switch. I'm constantly working on striving towards a healthy diet and lifestyle... falling back many days, but getting back up on that horse when I can. Even at the young age of 33 I'm starting to experience physical changes in my body, like arthritis in my knees, among other things. I need to take control of these things while I'm still young. Diet is only part of it, I need to exercise, something I rarely do at all. I sit alot for my work as a full time blogger, magazine designer, and many tasks that go along with our clothing company. Sitting is a huge part of my job. I have to create more space in my days for physical activity, my body is screaming for it. I have such a habit of starting a great health routine with gusto and excitement only for it to wane within a few weeks, and I'm right back where I started. Maybe talking about it more here will keep me more accountable.
In other news, I'm getting excited to shoot one of my magazine editorials with my friend Katelyn this weekend. She will be coming by herself which is a first! Usually it's her and her two adorable kiddos, and sometimes hubs too. It will be different without them, but I'm looking forward to good one on one time with her. And to make some magazine magic happen!!! October is going to be a VERY busy month b/c so many articles for the magazine are coming in alot later than anticipated, so I'll have alot of last minute work piled up at once. I'm sort of already bracing myself. But really looking forward to seeing it all come together in the end. Fingers crossed I don't fall apart in the process. This creative work I do involving others is so unpredictable, but always so rewarding. As long as I remind myself to embrace the flow, it's all good. Letting go of control has been such a lesson for me, and is quite freeing when I can actually do it!
