Thinking Out Loud | Can I wear pj's to work?

Thursday, March 26, 2015

First, I want to give a shout out to Amanda @ RunningwithSpoons for the link up.

Its #thinkingoutloud Thursday!

1.  I woke up this morning pretty tired and secretly wishing it was Friday and that I could wear my pj's to work.  Which got me thinking, why can't work have "Spirit Weeks" like you have in high school and college JUST so that I can participate in Pajama Day?  Just sayin...

2.  Handstand kick ups are NOT for me.  So part of my Black Fire workout through DailyBurn has gymnastics strength in it.  Last nights scheduled work out was the gymnastics strength portion.  1st move to do.... the handstand kick up.  If you had recorded me, I seriously would have looked like a fish out of water flapping around.  It would have been the funniest thing you would have seen in a while, trust me.

3. Ryan only wakes up EARLY during the week right when I am in the middle of my morning routine.  I usually wake up earlier than Ryan so that I can get up and get completely put together before I get him.  Because if not, Ryan is pushing me out the way and meddling in my makeup drawer or pulling my jewelry out and making a mess. Well, it seems like every day this week, Ryan has decided to get up way earlier and throw my routine for a loop.  I hear him talking, and look on our monitor, and see him dancing in his crib and having a good ole time screaming "mama." I swear, that child has an internal clock set to wake up on "mama is in the middle of getting ready, get up now!"

4.  Apple cider vinegar can seriously be used for anything!  I have pretty sensitive skin and have hormonal breakouts semi frequently.  I love using toner on my face, but I always think it is pretty pricey for what I get.  And, over the last year I have been trying to use very gentle and more of the natural ingredients on my face.  I have actually had less breakouts going that route.  I read about the benefits of apple cider vinegar and using it as a toner.  It balances the pH level of your skin, clears excess oils, breaks up dead skin cells to keep pores open, lighten sun and age spots, and improve acne and acne scars.  All you have to do is use unfiltered ACV such as Braggs (which you can buy at Walmart, etc for very cheap, and you mix half and half).  Take a container and mix half filtered water and half ACV....and you have created a GREAT toner for your face to use.  Warning...the smell is strong at first, but you get used to it and it dies down on your face.

I used an glass lemonade bottle and washed it out to use.


Do you have a natural recipe you use for your skin care routine?

Does your child love to mess with your morning routine?

Any workout move you can't stand?
