I plan to use my current handbag as my nappy bag - I don’t want to have 2 bags and also I love my handbag and it’s machine washable so perfect if it gets dirty. It is a Prene bag (as in the pic) - highly recommended! I plan to buy the organiser that fits into the bag to have little compartments for nappies etc. If I find I need a more organised bag then I can always buy a nappy bag once bub comes!
However, I have A LOT of stuff in my bag. My husband won’t go through it to find something as it’s like a maze 😂
So this is what I have in my bag:
👛 Wallet, keys and phone
👛 Water bottle
👛 2 reusable bags that fold up into tiny squares
👛 Headphones and a couple of pens
👛 Sanitary items (I have kept them in there during pregnancy) and Naprogesic
👛 Mini makeup bag with a comb, basic makeup, lipsticks, deoderant and bandaids
👛 Mints, muesli bars, tea bags and there is usually a peice of random fruit floating around in there!
👛 Treats for Marley 🐶
I use everything in there so don’t know what I can get rid of! I just threw out a mini diary I don’t use that had been in there all year!
What do you have in your handbag and how do you keep it organised? I love @the.minimalist.life idea of emptying her bag out when she gets home everyday. I have started doing this and it makes a big difference keeping everything organised!
What do you keep in your handbag? Is it as full as mine? 😬 Any tips for decluttering it?
A thought I've been repeating lately is this… 🔁
I don't need to know the whole picture. I just need to take the next best step. 👣
When balance or business or budget starts to feel like too much to handle… 😥
Just remember. 🏳️ You can change how you feel anytime you want. 😘
And it all starts with the thoughts inside that brain of yours. 🧠
What're your go-to helpful thoughts when circumstances feel overwhelming?
Been mia lately started new job last week and it’s quite full on - just be coming home eating and then sleeping 😂 now getting more used to it phew. Currently playing free bingo and waiting for my matched bets to settle
Trött tjej som utmanat sin sociala fobi hela dagen, och stressnivåerna som varit på level alldeles för hög. Men som min terapeut säger: Vad är det värsta som kan hända? Så till slut spelade jag ångesten ett spratt och det var skönt att bara kunna vara som vanligt igen.
Kommer ju vara sliten som ett as imorgon men, det går faktiskt lite framåt ändå. 🙈 Med tanke på vilken ”skitdag” jag hade igår så är jag glad att jag kunde genomföra det här idag. 💁🏼♀️#babysteps
I legit needed to Michael jackson kicked my way into these jeans. I havent worn then since probably early in my pregnancy. Now down -7.6lbs and almost back to what i was right after having jaxx.
Sometimes you just gotta tighten that ponytail and get sh*t done! It's a new week, and my favorite day. Do one small thing today that will take you one step closer to your goals.
For me, that's putting a little extra love and focus in my online coaching business. Which means... if you've ever wondered what this whole "coaching" thing is, now is your chance to ask. My team is holding a "what is coaching group" and will go over exactly what it is, how we make money, how we hold ourselves accountable to our workouts, how we help others on their fitness journey, etc. It's been the most rewarding side gig 😊 and if coaching isn't your thing, but you're looking to jumpstart your fitness and need a program, meal plan, accountability, etc... I'm here for you! New online groups starting soon to get you through the holidays. Let's start the new year off right! Don't hesitate to message me, and let's get you started!
I had an amazing #weekend -- FINALLY feeling GREAT waking up on a Monday morning (y) water was on point and just by cutting back on the crap I got rid of four pounds! 🙆♀️ I'm going to take #babysteps and try my hardest to keep it going this week, I need to constantly remind myself how much better I feel when I don't overindulge. 🤔😄 #Booty day was good. Not going to lie, I'm a little more scared of tomorrow's #cardio flow!!! I at least have tried them all -- and I really like them, almost more than #80DO 👍 #alittlemoreobsessed
Day 4 with the fosters, ignore the messy floor, they love to spill their food and I didn't want to spook Frazier because he didn't run from me today!! He even let me pet him and at one point came to me for attention so I pet him a little then picked him up, he was a little stiff so I gently put him back down but he still wanted his head scratched . My heart is happy!!! That's such a big step for him.♥️♥️♥️♥️ #fosterkittensofinstagram#fosterkittens#frazier#babysteps#spca#northbrevardspca
Literally haven't done ANYTHING creative in actual years when it used to be my absolute favourite... So even though this is just a lil old "been on hold on the phone for aaaages" doodle, I'm still quite pleased just with the fact I've done anything at all again at last, must mean I'm finally getting properly well again 😄 #babysteps#creativity
Ears suddenly released pressure this morning and my sense of smell came back!! Now I need to stop coughing and get this back down closer to my usual 97.8. I am assuming once all that is done I’ll get my voice back. 😂. #babysteps#flusucks 😷
"sometimes the baby steps are literal" this weekend I explained to my mister what my experience with fibromyalgia is like. I forget that my diagnosis was a lifetime ago and this isn't just common knowledge for people. I also got out of the house and showered. In that order. 😁 I'm feeling better almost everyday and formulating a plan to handle any future episodes with a better foundation. #fibromyalgia#babysteps#practiceandalliscoming
Happy Monday Warriors! ✨😊✨ This is me wearing my shorts and riding my bike with my family and stopping to take a picture in those shorts!
A few years ago, this would’ve been me likely dressed in a darker color, long pants, taking the pictures, and if they insisted, I’d be hiding behind them in the shot coz I felt too fat, too big, too frumpy...you get the idea!
But not anymore...
Today I feel the victory of my success every time I go out wearing something like shorts or a tiny dress. 💃💪😊
It’s tangible evidence of my success and proves to me that I can do anything I put my mind to. It’s a little thing but it tells me I broke through the barrier for good, that I DID it!
And guess what? I want you to feel the same joy. If I did, then you surely can!! Need help? Send me a message today and I’ll help you chalk out a plan. You could be looking back in a few months and saying “I DID it” too! 💃🔥💪👍👊 #DontWaitForNewYears#DoItNow#StartSmall#BabySteps#WeightLossForGood#TakeTheFirstStep#ActionIsASuperPower
Finding new doors? New opportunities? This one is locked but made sure I tried the knob.
Trying to juggle work and entrepreneurship can sometimes feel like you’re moving like a snail, but if you don’t stay alert and spot out opportunities while you’re growing in your startup, you may never get that chance again. Worried about not looking complete? That’s not the answer. It’s better to shake hands with your palm up rather than palm down starting relationships. How will someone ever help you if they don’t know what you’re all about? Don’t be scared to make connections and open new doors for yourself even if you don’t think you’re ready. Now is a perfect time!
BANK ACCOUNT. 😳
Y’all, I fell back into old habits. I believe in killing off old habits, cold turkey...but that hasn’t quite worked for me in the #debtfreecommunity
I had been doing so good, I had been saving more than 10%, I had been eating GROCERIES instead of out, I had not been shopping for things other than necessities......welllll...I fell back into some old habits annnnd now my bank account is BROKE!!! The week had been busy, I didn’t cook once all last week, we ate out everyday...it was “ok” cause I had been doing good...right? My son grew, the season changed, he needed new clothes....that “he” somehow turned into “we”. My TWO back tires NEEDED to be replaced, my car also NEEDED an oil change. But all of this was fine because I had been doing good...right? 🙄Oh yeah, and I am ready to get back to eating right so I had a long healthy grocery list....
Let’s just say I went waayyyyyyyy OVER BOARD with the clothes/shoes (I purchased with the INTENTION to return items after trying them on), the car was at least $100 more than I expected and I’m embarrassed to say....my card was declined for $105 worth of groceries 🤦🏾♀️
Y’all....THAT HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. After the initial embarrassment, I had to laugh, probably to keep from crying. But the nerve of me to think that A MONTH & A HALF of “doing good” warranted a payday shopping spree. Quick reality check.....AND it forced me to acknowledge that I already have food in the freezer. #lessonlearned#samelesson#differentday#embarrassing#illbemakingreturnsTODAY#thankfulformy#savingsaccount
