What i'm loving this week - 07.05.2019

Two blog posts in one day!

I know! Who am I ?!

Don't get used to it haha

Here's what I've been loving this week:

I love the beach

To be honest, before this Summer I dreaded going to the beach.
It was stressful when the kids were younger but this Summer we've already spent nearly every day at the beach.
This is about the only place my kids get along 99.9% of the time haha

I love this hat 

I was gifted this sun hat last week at an Old Navy event and it's perfect for keeping the sun off my face while I'm doing my gardening or at the beach.

You can shop it HERE

I love this song

This song has been on repeat for the last week in our house.
The kids {okay, me too} are obsessed with this song and have been trying to perfect the two step ever since they heard it for the first time.

I love this lip gloss

I purchased this lip gloss from Aveda on my trip to Oklahoma back in May and I love it! 
It's the perfect pink.

Shop it HERE

I'm loving this book

I bought this Steve Jobs book for Louis years back but he's never opened it, so I've been reading it every night before bed and so far, really enjoying it!

I love this show

I'm clearly on a reality tv kick lately haha
Yummy Mummies season 2 just released on Netflix and I 100% intend to binge watch this ridiculous show 

The Reason I Joined Weight Watchers Freestyle

If you follow me on Instagram ,you know that I just signed up for Weight Watchers.

They've actually recently rebranded and now call themselves WW.

The reason for the rebrand was to focus on health & wellness more than weight loss.

Needless to say, with healthier lifestyle choices, weight loss will naturally follow.

The last few months have been busy with travel, birthdays and a whole lot of take out food.

As a result, I found myself gaining 30lbs.

It wasn't until my oldest daughter took a photo of me from behind, to show me the braid she put in my hair, that I realized I really needed to make a change.

I had been feeling more tired than usual and my clothes weren't fitting anymore, but this picture was my realization that I couldn't go on like this anymore.

The last time I weighed this much was when I was 9 months pregnant.

A few months back, my grandma joined WW and within 3 months was down 30lbs and over all was feeling a lot healthier.

I decided to look it up and there happened to be a 50% off sale going on so I signed up!

There are two options for WW
1: Workshop & Digital
2. Digital 

The first option includes in person workshops and weigh ins once a week and access to the online app & website.

The second option is digital only, which is what I opted for because it was the more affordable option & I can do it all from an app on my phone. 

I'll still weigh in once a week from my home.

With the digital option I'm able to track my points, find recipes, be a part of the online community within the app.

There's also a huge community on Instagram I can turn to for encouragment and support.

Because of the promo I believe I paid something like $2.99 a week for 12 months.

Unfortunately, that promo is over but if you use this link you can sign up and get one month FREE.

The thing I love most about this program so far is that it's helping me make healthier choices for myself.

I was going to go to Mcdonalds for lunch today, but when I put it into my app and saw that it would take up nearly 3/4 of my points for the WHOLE day I opted for this healthier option instead.

There's a ton of healthy options that are zero points, like fruits, veggies, beans & lean meats.

I'll be sure to keep yall updated on my journey and share recipes and more!
