Things I do for Me

Things I do for Me

Hello Ladies! Hope you all are doing well! I’m doing well. The boys have been so good. We are getting a schedule that works for us and we can’t wait for some more summer fun!

Today I wanted to share a few things I do for me. As a stay at home mom I think it’s easy to let certain things go. I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t. I want to keep up with things I love to do for myself.

Everyone is different, and we all have unique things that make us feel good. So I say do them and remember to take care of yourself. We have an entire house of loved ones that count on us everyday so it’s important to keep ourselves feeling good.

Exercise is probably one of the most important that I do 5 times a week. As I get older I have to start worrying about different health issues. I recently had a physical and everything checked out great. I feel having an exercise plan that fits you is key to a healthy life. Not to mention exercising has helped me with anxiety. It’s something I do alone for myself. I wake up early to get it done. With the boys home I wake up early so I can have that time to myself before they get up. It’s my kind of meditation in the morning. I’ve been hooked on The fitness Marshall on YouTube. I do about 4 dance videos and I’ll do a few workouts with weights. I have seen such a difference on the outside and most important on the inside of how I see myself. I say try it! Create a workout plan for you and try to do something that you enjoy. I never leave my house to workout so you don’t have to belong to a gym or have a personal trainer. Good luck ladies!

Alone time! I’m always with the kids or the hubby. So I make sure to get some alone time away from home. Some of my favorite alone time things to do. I go shopping even if it’s just to look. I love walking the mall and just feeling free, browsing at my favorite stores. Grabbing a coffee alone. Or just going for a drive alone listening to music in the car with the windows down. That’s the best.

Grooming! Something I promised myself is to keep up with grooming. I get haircuts every 5 weeks to make me feel good. I get Mani and Pedi’s on a regular basis. I have eyelash extensions that make me feel good. These might seem petty to others but to me it’s important. I love feeling good on the outside too. It’s for me and only for me. Not to mention I count these as alone time. And the hubby is so good and encouraging. He loves this about me.

Going out for drinks! I enjoy hanging out with friends or the hubby. It’s a time I can have adult conversation and just relax. Nothing wrong with having a little time to enjoy! Cheers ladies!

Hope you liked This post! Till next post.

10 month blog update/life update

10 month blog update/life update

Hello my beautiful ladies! Today I wanted to give you all a blog update and life update. If you’re new to my blog. Every month I’ve written a blog update. I wanted to have my first year in blogging documented not only for myself to go back and see my growth, but for others that are thinking about starting a blog.

So today is exactly 10 months since my first post. I still get butterflies when I hit the post button. No matter what or how long I do this. I think I’ll always feel a little nervous posting. With the worry of will people read, will people like the post, will people think I’m lame, LOL! You know all the worries I shouldn’t have. As my blogging journey continues, I’m learning so much and loving every minute of it.  Blogging has helped me step out of my mom routine to use my creative side and talk about things I love. I try to stay as true to myself in all my blog post and my instagram post. It hasn’t been easy, I honestly commend all the bloggers that have been in the game for years. I have learned the most important rule of blogging is consistency. Don’t give up keep posting content. Don’t post just to post. Make sure you post something worth reading and looking at. I don’t have time to waste and I don’t think my readers do to. So when I’m getting ready to post I really put my heart in all post. They honestly come from my true self. When I’m writing I put myself in a space talking to my good friends.

What to expect from my blog. I plan to bring more Family life to my Blog. Because that’s my life. I found myself getting a little stressed and giving myself anxiety just trying to think of what fashion post to put up or what’s the news styles we all need to have. I mean don’t get me wrong , I will still post about fashion and the coolest styles. But I will add more family moments and family talk to my blog. I can’t wait and Believe me it won’t be boring. I really hope you all follow along my blogging journey because I’m not stopping anytime soon!

Life update! Well I’ve been experiencing a lot of anxiety lately. I haven’t felt like this in a really long time. It’s getting better. I work out twice a day just to relieve the anxiety. I haven’t pin pointed the cause. But it will get better. I have to keep telling myself to slow down and breathe. I think Mom life can get a little overwhelming for all. If you experience anxiety just slow down and really focus on you. I really feel exercising helps.

On a brighter note. I have something super exciting coming later this year. And let me tell you after summer break with the kiddos home and back to school madness. This upcoming adventure will be so needed. I will be attending my lovely cousins wedding in Punta Cana. My kids and hubby will not be going. SO that’s major for me. I haven’t left my breaker ever. So when i decided to go I had so many thoughts in my head. You know the mom guilt. But I really am so happy to be going for my cousin. I get to enjoy some R&R with my family. My mom included, I’m so excited. And believe me follow me on instagram because I will for sure be posting there. I’ll be posting a packing guide for the blog right before. It will be destination wedding packing. And I’ll be posting a recap of my vacay after. So please stay tuned to what I have in store for Stylesencillo.com.

I love all of you that take the time to read my post. And appreciate the sweet comments. Thank you thank you. Means the world to me. Till next post.
