Well, I haven’t exactly been keeping up with the goal of taking a selfie everyday! Remember that list I made of rules for this project? As you can see from the many photos in this post…that didn’t happen. 😂 It’s okay though.
I ended up starting a new challenge on the 16th of this month anyway so, that’s kind of been taking up a lot of my time. As you can see, I have a lot of post workout selfies to take!
I’ve also been spending a lot of time meal prepping and tracking my macros. It’s a new way of doing things for me but it’s also pretty great. I’m doing more of flexible dieting rather than going on a diet. I’m not exactly eating whatever I want but I’m it restricting myself so much that I can’t eat either.
Girl, I’m eating all the carbs! ❤️️
I’ve also been trying to take some time, at least once a week, to do my makeup. Sounds silly, but it’s just a little something for ME. I mean, working out is for me. To keep me healthy, fit, get in shape, and to keep me sane…but the makeup thing is more for me to feel a little more “put together.” About 99% of the time I’m in workout clothes or I’m covered in baby spit up. So, getting presentable is nice every now and then.
Speaking of makeup: I tried lipsense for the first time during this past week. A friend of mine ended up just sending me some to try out. And let me tell you, this stuff works. I’m not one to believe in things until I’ve tried it so it’s pretty great that my friend sent it to me without me even asking. I think she knows I love makeup and just knew I’d love it. She was right. I loved it. If you’re interested, I’ll post a link below so you can check it out. She’s awesome.
Another thing about makeup – on my birthday I did go to Ulta and buy some makeup. Yes, I spoiled myself a little bit. I ended up getting something new and something that’s been out for quite awhile. Before I started really getting into makeup again, I never really knew of any brand besides MAC. Then I discovered Urban Decay when I was pregnant with my first and bought a palette (Naked 2), and I’ve been wanting the Naked 3 palette for the longest time. I refused to buy it because it was over $50. What’s wrong with me? 😂 I already have a Naked palette and they’re all priced the same. AND I’ve bought other brands lately and multiple palettes, I just realized that I might as well buy it! How silly am I?! So, I got that palette.
I even got the Too Faced – Sweet Peach Palette that recently came out. It smells so good and it’s my first ever Too Faced purchase. I’ll be doing a review on both of these palettes sometime when I get a chance. I may not be a makeup guru, but I’m still a woman and a mom and I think other super busy moms with a passion for makeup would also enjoy the opinion. I mean…I love makeup tutorials on YouTube. Trust me. But I feel like it’s so unrealistic to me sometimes. Yes, they have lives but the women we’re watching, have been doing this for awhile and are pretty established by now. Whereas I’m just like
“Hey. I’m a mom and have two kids. I love fitness aaaannnndddd I’m super freaking busy but makeup is so cool!”
Anyway, I’ll post more about those adventures some other time. 😆
And the rest of the photos are from this week and I hope you enjoy them!! Yes, I’m tandem wearing my kids. It’s awesome. I don’t just tandem nurse but I tandem wear!
