Purple sweat pants...and the Shake mistake!

Ok, so as much as I'd prefer for people to think I'm way cool (cuz I so am!) I will admit that the dorky side of me tends to pop out at times (ok, a lot of times....Shhh!)
So I was picking up my kids and one of their friends the other day at school, and when I got home I actually took a moment look at myself...OH BOY!

Seriously?  What was I thinking?  PURPLE sweat pants and SLIPPERS!

OMG!  What was I doing?  In that moment I realized that I was turning into one of THOSE moms!  You know the ones I mean...those women who wear crappy clothes or pajamas to drop off and pick up their kids at school because they think no one will see them, or they just don't give a crap.  Well, I do NOT want to turn into one of those.  I mean, I don't really care what other people think, but I care about what I think about myself, ya know?  No more of this silliness!  Even if those pants are great for cleaning the house...they must burn!

Yesterday (the next day) I made sure that this was never going to happen again.  I made sure that I got DRESSED to go pick up my kids.

Oh yeah!  Do you know what a difference getting dressed can make to your overall mood?  I felt so much better about myself when I picked up my kids.  We even went shopping since I was in such a good mood!  Nothing like a good pair of jeans and some awesome boots to make a girl feel human.  :)

So I also tried a new recipe with my Shakeology yesterday.  I mentioned earlier this week that I was trying to get in all my 9 servings of fruit and veggies a day.  And a friend of mine managed to get 6 into her shake that morning.  I was inspired to try to do the same thing, mostly because I'm lazy about cooking, and also because her shake sounded so good!  The only thing I didn't have that she used was cherries.  Hmmm...I had just been to the store so I knew I had some new frozen stuff.  I looked in the freezer and remembered that I had cranberries.  Ok, that should kind of work.  I mean I know they are kind of tart and tangy, but they're sweet too.  So I threw them in.

Almond milk, Chocolate Shakeology, baby spinach, baby kale,
banana, flax seeds, cranberries, mango, and some cantaloupe.

That was such a mistake!  I mean I know that cherries with chocolate are awesome, but I didn't realize quite how unawesome cranberries with chocolate (and all that other stuff) would be. 
Guess what though...I drank it anyway.  I know, it was totally gross, but it was my fault that I ruined it and I just couldn't stand to let all those other ingredients go to waste.  Plus it WAS healthy, just not so tasty. 

I think from now on, I'll stick to my regular recipe.  Although I did pick up some frozen cherries when I was out shopping in my hot mama boots!  :)

What's the craziest clothing story you have?  I'd love to hear it!


  1. I've been (religiously) following this blog -- and forcing myself to get dressed, including jewelry every day. While you, of course, are not this old, there's still a lesson in getting a Facebook post EVERY morning that tells you to not wear sweatpants .

    1. Jennie - Thank you so much for following me!
      Is that a FB page that reminds you every day? Ha ha, I would love to get the link for that! And I will check out that blog link too! Thank you so much. :)

  2. LOL I'm totally one of those moms. I pretty much live in workout gear and sometimes, it's workout gear that needed to go in the wash like 3 days ago. Oy.

    1. Ha ha ha! I so know what you mean, but unfortunately I really have no excuse for purple sweatpants. :/
