weekly iphone photo dump ~ september week {four}

From left to right:
1.  I had to get a crown on my wisdom tooth (yup, I still have my wisdom teeth) this week (blah).  My dentist was having a hard time getting back there, I didn't realize until the Novocaine wore off that my tongue was bruised...OUCH!!
2.  Just Bella waiting for me to throw her the ball.
3.  Saturday morning coffee, while I plan out my list of things to do and make my menu for the week. 
4.  Bella had her second week of puppy class.  She did so well (even with "leave it")!!  I LOVE the trainer too!  She has a pitbull and has really given me some great tips that are working AWESOME with Bella.
5.  Seriously!!  I think we have gotten enough rain this month!!  
6.  I took Sophie to the vet for a re-check on her skin on Saturday (we drove in the torrential down pour, see #5).  She is on another round of antibiotics just to make sure her skin infection is totally cleared up.
7.  What do you do when you don't want to wash your hair on Sunday morning and it looks like a hot mess after you were caught in a crazy downpour on Saturday afternoon (see #5)??  You put your hair in a sock bun.
8.  Well, Bella finally go to the red part of her Goughnuts toy.  I am so glad they guarantee them.  I am Sending it back for a new one (thanks Goughnuts!!).
9.  I have finally been getting the itch to take this bad boy back out again (I have been really lazy using my iPhone camera).  I am kinda excited about it!!

Enjoy today!

weekly phone dump - september week {three}

From left to right:
1.  When it is cloudy and 88 degrees in Phoenix, you break out the sweaters.  I am ready for fall!!
2. I am addicted to Trader Joe's Pomegranate White Tea, so yummy (I drink mine iced).
3.  Since I have been cutting out all processed foods from my diet, cereal had to go (BOO!), but I am currently loving quinoa with apples, walnuts and cinnamon and a splash of coconut milk.
4.  Bella started her puppy classes at PetSmart on Saturday morning.  We want her to get the AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate (just like Sophie).  I think she is the smartest one in class, LOL!!
5.  And just because I love pretty food!!  Greek yogurt with berries and walnuts.
6.  Just some puppy playing.
7.  I stopped at Target on Sunday morning and was thrilled to find some Applegate products.  
8.  It had to happen!!  Pumpkin candle melts are in the house...they smell so yummy!
9.  We went to the BP (bark park) on Sunday, it wore out Soph, LOL!!

weekly iphone photo dump~september week {two}

From left to right:
1.  Monday started off with a huge rain storm.  It was CRAZY!!  I finally made it into work around 10am.  My backyard and pool took a while to clean up.
2.  Mike is out of town for a couple of weeks, so Ashley went to the bark park with me on Wednesday night (Sophie, Bella and Kodi all had a great time!! even though Kodi wouldn't smile for the camera, silly pup!!)
3.  see #2
4.  see #2
5.  Since Sophie was still itching, I dropped her off at the vet on Friday morning to have some tests done.  They called me at lunch time and said that they were not going to run the tests, because she has a skin infection (poor girl!!).  
6.  We came home from the vet with a goodie bag of antibiotics and medicated shampoo.  Soph seem to be less itchy already *smile*
7.  My mom sent me some oil and vinegar from the town she lives in.  I cannot wait to try it!!  Here is the link.
8.  I am finishing up a 9 day cleanse, that gave me awesome results and I feel great.  I wasn't even hungry, since it included real food that was yummy!! 

Enjoy Today!

weekly iphone photo dump ~ september {week one}

From left to right:
1.  I had last week off from work.  I got to snuggle with the pups quite a bit.  I loved it!!
2.  I had to see what all the hype was about.  Cotton Candy grapes...they were good, but I think I prefer regular old grapes best.
3.  I made THIS recipe for dinner last week (which was yummy), and turned the leftovers into a southwestern salad that was so DELISH!!
4.  Sophie got a hold of a stress ball, I guess she was having some stress, LOL!
5.  I am such a creature of habit, an apple with almond butter is my afternoon snack, pretty much every day.  YUM!
6.  Sophie is having an allergic reaction to the grass that Mike planted in the back yard (I think), so I looked online for ways to help her not to scratch. I found an article that said to put a t-shirt on them, it worked like a charm, and she looks super cute (and I think she likes it)!!
7.  I have Kodi this week while Josh and Jess are on vacation. I like snuggling with him too!!
8.  Sometimes my snack looks so pretty, so I have to take a picture of it.  1/2 banana, 4 strawberries, 1 kiwi and a teaspoon of chia seeds.  
9.  This was Sophie and Bella after their swim on Sunday morning.  Sleepy pups.

Enjoy Today!

September Special {21 Day Fix}

 September Special!!! 
I wanted to share with you...that for the month of September
 the 21 Day Fix Challenge Pack is on special. 
 If you have wondered what this program is all about 
NOW is the time to check it out. 
Great for anyone at any fitness level 
and the perfect foundation to create a healthy lifestyle. 
The eating plan is so easy to follow 
and the workouts are only 30 minutes a day 
and a new one for each day of the week.  

As you know, I LOVE this program!! 
 I am starting my 2nd round of it.  
You can read my review  HERE.

One thing I have learned in my "getting healthy" journey...
is that it is mind over matter! 
Do I want to work out everyday?  
NOT really, but I always feel so much better when I do.

Do I want to eat healthy? 
Yeah, I really do!!  I have noticed that since I have cut out processed food 
and sugar, when I do cheat, I feel awful.

Do I want to sleep better?  
YUP!!  I never really had trouble in this area, but I feel so much more rested when I wake up in the morning.

Do I want to wear a smaller size? 
Heck YEAH!  All my pants are too loose and I have to wear a belt, 
which is such a great feeling!!  

I would love to help you in your journey as well!!  
If you are ready to make a change please message me 
and I will be happy to help and share more about the program.  
It has made a huge difference for me!
