All Things Mommy:)

“The Journey of 1000 miles begins with the very first step”

 

So i would first lie to point out that i at blogging. i have so many ideas to share yet have such a hard time putting them out there! But i have completed one full month of clean eating and working out daily! i am so proud of how far i have come and can’t wait to share it. My blog is going to be taking a newer direction taking into account all of the new changes i have made to my lifestyle!

First change will be having a lot more to do with fitness and the journey i’m currently on. i will share progress recipes and much more along the way!

Second thing will be my life as a whole. A few months ago i mentioned wanting to start working from home. Although that is my biggest goal in life it isn’t going to happen anytime soon. So in the next couple of weeks i will be looking for a job as well as doing the work from home on the side. i am planning on moving into my own place with my daughter in the next few months and for that i need a steady income.

i will also still be keeping the all things mommy outlook.i am a mother and that won’t be changing so i will have lots to share along the way.

So i loo forward to interacting with everyone and i hope you all enjoy what i have to share!

Goals for 2016!!

Good evening everyone! So i know it’s been a while since i posted but my main reason for coming back to blogging was because i have a lot of upcoming goals for 2016! I mentioned in a few previous posts that i struggle very severely with anxiety, and while that is still the case. I have taken it upon myself to make 2016 my most amazing year yet.

So to start things off my baby turned 3 at the beginning of February!! i cannot believe i have a 3 year old! It is crazy how fast time flies!

So my next few goals kind of go hand in hand with each other. I’m going to get a job and move out this year. I am so determined, I’ve already handed out resumes got brook onto a waiting list for daycare. And it’s baby steps from there! This is my biggest anxiety trigger, getting a job or even just the interview so i think once i accomplish this the rest is smooth sailing.

My last goal and the main reason for starting back up my blog is i am extremely motivated to start living a healthier active lifestyle! I started my weight loss journey on Feb 14, 2016 and i know that only 10 days but i have eaten 100% clean and worked out every single night! I am so motivated to live this lifestyle and i have lost 4 pounds already. I just feel so much healthier and active already and it’s only been 10 days! I have been following a youtube by the name of blogilates. She is truly motivating and theres an amazing community of people motivating you along the way. Ill post tomorrow all about it but for tonight i just wanted to let you all know my plans this year!

Do you have any goals for this year?! I know new years resolutions are so cliche but u feel like i am finally getting somewhere this year. Slowly and surely by 2017 i will be where I want to be!

Frustrated..

Ever been so upset and frusturated that absolutely nothing is going right and the day is completely wrecked.. Thats me today.. 

 
Breathe jamie you can do this.. Collect yourself and breathe. Take a powernap while brooks napping and waie up with a positive attitude!

Anxiety Update—-

As most of you know i suffer from severe anxiety to the point it has stopped me from doing things. As i am sitting here today looking back on my day i feel like i have made a significant amount of progress in just one day!

First i went to the doctors office – So some of you are like yeah so? but for me that is a huge milestone! One of a huge triggers in my anxiety is attending appointments! I have a very nice doctor and once i am there i am find, but getting into that office is very hard. So today i overcame that and went to the doctors to talk about my anxiety! I have been given a few tools i’m hoping will help me out a bit.

Second i got some financial burdens figured out – I am currently unemployed but slowly building up a working from home business. I was able to pay off some debts and even get into the bank to get them all sorted out. Yet again going to the bank may be easy for you but for me it is a large fear that i was able to overcome.

I feel like opening up about my anxiety is making things so much easier. People just think i don’t want to work and i want to stay home and live on welfare for the rest of my life, but are you kidding me!!!! There is nothing more that i would rather do then go to work and pay off my debts, move out of my mothers house and into a place i can call my own, give my daughter everything and anything she can possibly imagine.

So like i said yes those small tasks may seem stupid, but i got help! That is the most important thing i want everyone to take out of this post. I seeked help and finally felt like someone was on my side. I put a plan into place and i’m going to continue to work towards my goals both long term and short!

I will beat this anxiety and i will overcome everything i need to in order to give my daughter and i the best life i possibly can!

Thanks for listening, See you soon, Jamie ❤

Conversations With My 2 Year Old – Fair and Thanksgiving Weekend!!!!

Well this weekend has been a SUPER busy weekend! It is thanksgiving here in Canada So happy thanksgiving everyone! We also had a huge fair on this weekend in town and decided to go to that 2 of the days. And on top of that i decided to attempt to make my very first turkey dinner!

So brooks first fair was a huge success! She had so much fun and i’m so happy she got to go. She was a champ on all of the rides and just kept wanting to go on more and more! I am so fortunate to be able to do this for her and i look forward to carrying on more traditions just like i did as a child! When i was younger we used to go to the fair every thanksgiving weekend and then we’d have a turkey dinner at my grandmas on the monday!

This thanksgiving i decided to cook a turkey myself! Since my grandmother passed away we have yet to ever have a thanksgiving dinner. So lets just say the turkey was definetely and experience! The worst part was preparing the turkey. Lets just say it turned my stomach… And i honestly debated continuing but i knew i had to do this or we weren’t going to have a thanksgiving dinner! So i ended up making turkey, potatos, stuffing, corn, cranberries and a fresh pumpkin pie! I wish i had taken pictures of it because i was so proud that i did this for my family.

Heres a few pictures from the fair! This weekend was full of “baby daddy drama” which i won’t be getting into in this post, but spending it with the ones you love is truly the best feeling ever!

See You Soon, Jamie ❤


  
  
  

Starting Something New?

So lately i have been looking around my house and thinking wow we have accumulated so much stuff it’s time to declutter! So i’m thinking of starting a little series about decluttering? Once a week i will pick a small area and completely organize it! i’m talking top to bottom spotless! I think this will be helpful with me starting my own business and getting more organized!

So these are some areas i’m going to start with:

Each wall/section of my bedroom

Each section/ wall of my daughter room

Bathroom.

Car!!

Kitchen

Living Room

And who knows what else!!

This is going to be a long series but i think the fact that i am openly telling everyone that i’m going to do this will give me the motivation i need to get it done! So stay tuned. I was also thinking of filming some youtube videos about this but i am unsure on how far i will get with that! it’s been a while since i filmed a youtube video and am not sure if i’m ready to get back into that yet!

So let me know what you guys think and feel free to join in with me! Also stay tuned for some mommy posts! I would like to do a nighttime routine, morning routine, toddler meals, potty training post! Lots more to come

Man i just love blogging! i’m so happy i started this!

See you all soon, Jamie

Mommy problems…

How come whenever my child gets sick theres a 98% chance i will get sick to.. Unfortunatly this week i am not apart of that 2 percent..

We live in canada and currently the weather cannot make up its mind. 2 weeks ago we had the air on and then last week we had to turn the heat on it was so cold.. 

WTF Canada!! Get it together! It feels like everyones getting sick due to this rapid weather change..  I never get sick and so when i do its pretty much the end of the world.. (In my head atleast) 

Oh and of course did i mention my daughter was only sick for about 24 hours and im now going on day 3!! Yep #momlife

See you soon, Jamie ❤
