LMSC Challenge – For The Win!

LMSC Challenge – For The Win!

Good morning!

I had night time engagements Thursday and Friday night so I had to make those posts pretty short. So here is today’s “For the Win!” post! Share your wins from last week! Scale victories, non-scale victories, good thoughts and feelings, tell us something good!

Lean, Mean, and Squeaky Clean Challenge – For The Win!

My win is that last week ended up getting pretty chaotic for me but I never really gave up. Sometimes I feel like I am white knuckling this whole thing but I have to keep in mind that the fit life is not little healthy hearts and fit flowers all the time. There are times when I feel totally in the game and excited to be in the trenches being a bad mamajamma with you ladies, then there are going to be times when I am less motivated and feeling covered in the muddiness of the trenches and not really seeing the hearts and flowers at the top. But nevertheless, I am still in fact in the trenches and I think that is probably the definition of “the trenches” after all.

And for the record, you all are my little healthy hearts and fit flowers haha! I love you ladies so much.

Here’s today’s food and my Workout Was Hammer Iso Speed from The Master’s Hammer and Chisel. I am almost done with this program! I am thinking of doing T25 after this. Hmmmm.

 

My cafe latte Shakeology finally came! I love this flavor!

Questions:

How did you win last week?

What did you eat today?

Any exercise?

I hope you all are having a great weekend!

5 Facts About The Introvert

5 Facts About The Introvert

Hey Everybody!

Today’s post veers from the norm a bit. Are you an introvert or an extravert?

IMG_20170323_141000

This morning, I took some much needed time to be quiet and ponder. I am at my core an introvert. In my 10 years of being on social media and 3 years as a blogger I have noticed that introverts make great bloggers and they also tend to have a strong online presence. I love being an introvert because we have an extremely rich and fulfilling “inner world” as I call it but at the same time, my friends and even family are often times confused at my need for alone time because when I am with them I am pretty outgoing and chatty.

I think the confusion comes from the belief that introversion means you are shy and quiet. This is not true. Being an introvert or an extrovert simply means that your energy comes from either being alone or being with others. So an extravert will feel energized coming away from a gathering while the introvert will need some time to be alone afterward although they thoroughly enjoyed the gathering just as much.

Coming away from my morning of introverted indulgence, I decided to share some fun facts about introverts that will maybe clear up a little of the confusion.Enjoy!

5 Facts About The Introvert

-Introverts Do Not Hate People

Well I guess some do but it’s definitely not a the case that all introverts hate people. As stated above, they just need time to be alone to recharge. But this introvert definitely does not hate people. Love you Readers!

-Introverts Enjoy DEEP Discussions

If you wondering how you ended up engaged in a discussion about the origins of the universe, the meaning of life, or wars through the centuries, congratulations! You’ve found yourself an introvert!

-Introverts Lives Often Appear to Be Less Than Fabulous

But they aren’t! Due to the incredibly colorful “inner world” the introvert is pretty content with the simple life. Because to us, it’s not very simple at all!

-Introverts Are Not More Intelligent

This assumption comes from the stereotype of the “introverted” prodigy that stays alone in their basement staring at a computer day and night and has an extreme awkwardness in social situations. Nope. We are social, we are outgoing, we love friends and family and shopping and fun just like the extravert. We just need to go home afterward and regroup!

-IntrovertsĀ LOVEĀ Their Friends

If you have a good friend who is an introvert, know that you have been carefully scanned and analyzed and Ā deemed extremely valuable to that person. This may sound terrible and judging but it’s not. There is a difference between acquaintances and friends and because the introvert needs time to regroup, they have to make sure to keep friends who are understanding and accepting. This doesn’t mean that they don’t like anyone else, but the introvert holds these few near and dear to their hearts.

And to be clear, introverts enjoy extroverts! I love mine!
