FEBRUARY CHALLENGE SIGN UP!


We are working super hard over here at OMB > just so happens the work is pretty damn fun. I had to order this tutu and I already found the perfect maxi dress for Madison to wear when we take pictures this Spring. It's going to be our best ones yet, I can feel it. Of course January has been a tad slower than the last half of '15, but we are getting our crap together, updating the Quick Books, organizing our inventory, etc. The Spring lines literally have me squealing with delight, I think I may start a weekly fashion post on here with fun items I'm loving or trends I'm not sure about, I love to get your opinions. I am currently having a blog designer revamp this old design, it's been years since I've updated it and I think you are guys are going to love the new cleaner layout. I will also have a easy spot to find all of my favorite things so you don't have to dig through posts. 


This cut has been so freaking hard for me and I'm trying to figure out whyyyyyyyy. I decided to try the MNS C from Advocare for 30 days and see if it helps, basically for the appetite control. So far, a week in, I'm on the fence so I'll reserve final judgement for the end of the month. I am just curious, if combined with my current diet and exercise routine, that it would help me feel less omgihavetoeatrightnow. I've toyed with the idea of cutting out all cardio for a month, but I just don't know if I'm willing to give up something I love, even if I do get leaner. I can't get myself to drop to my next set of macros, but I'm not giving up just yet. 


I know some of it may be the fact that I am home, all day errrrrrday, with full access to my kitchen. Now that my remodel is done and my house is back to normal I feel happy and content being here and I don't think that's great for my diet LOL. I've never ever been a homebody, this is quite a change for me. 


My first line of defense is to switch up what I'm eating. I had the best salad over the weekend so I recreated it at home with the Trader Joe's salad mix with chicken, cranberries, and sunflower seeds. It's only around 350 calories, but doesn't keep me full very long. About 90 minutes later I'll have a Combat Crunch - I ordered 6 BOXES of these - so so so good y'all and the macros are the same as a quest.



Also - it's time again for one of my Facebook Challenge groups - we are holding a lottery style entry so if you would like to be considered please fill out the form CAREFULLY DO NOT EFF UP THIS SPREADSHEET PRETTY PLEASE. thanks :)

You can access the form by clicking here. We will be picking random names this Friday at Noon! We are keeping the groups small this go round, I think we are only taking 125 people, but final decision will be Friday.

If you are unfamiliar with these groups they are held via Facebook only, the entry fee is $20, we use it for prizes. They are for fun and accountability while we support each other in this journey to better our health, we do not provide meal or exercise plans, but we do hold challenges and such to help have some fun and motivate. You must be free of major restrictions to participate fully and be dedicated  - if you are 'too busy' please leave the spot free for someone else. Thank you guys! I look forward to meeting some of you in there!

  7. Not to be "one of those" people but you can set up your google doc as a form that people can answer all the questions and then the form sends it to you in a google spreadsheet. I use them at work all the time and love them because then no one messes up my spreadsheets and forms. I just send the form out and then I get to see all the data and entries and they do not. Just a suggestion for next time!

    By the way, I love the new OMB tutu photo. Very intriguing and totally different for online boutiques.
