These are my confessions... (plus a haircut)

It's Friday, and I'm in the mood to do a little confessing, y'all.

{One.}

First, let's talk about the fact that this happened.

I got a wild hair (ha. see what I did there?) and chopped about six or so inches off on Saturday.  I feel so ridiculously hairless, which is just funny since I can look at this picture and plainly see that my hair isn't actually short.  But it feels like I have a pixie cut or something.  Just call me Halle Berry (pretty please?).

{Two.}

I'm pretty certain I'm going to start Whole 30 on Monday.  I have been eating like crap for about a month and a half now, and I'm ready to hop back on the wagon again.  But I'm not starting over with Slim4Life because this time I really want to focus on eating real food, and I'm hoping Whole 30 can help me learn to crave the things that are good for me.  I know the transition will be a major one, but as I was learning about the paleo-ish program, this excerpt from the website really struck me:

It is not hard. Don’t you dare tell us this is hard. Beating cancer is hard. Birthing a baby is hard. Losing a parent is hard. Drinking your coffee black. Is. Not. Hard. You’ve done harder things than this, and you have no excuse not to complete the program as written. It’s only thirty days, and it’s for the most important health cause on earth – the only physical body you will ever have in this lifetime. 

Preach. It.

I'll let you know how it all goes.  I'm cautiously optimistic, although I can't really envision a world where I don't eat cheese...

{Three}

I did the thing I swore I'd never do.  I jumped on the bandwagon..

... and bought Grace not one, not two, but three pair of moccasins (from here).

Okay, that's a lie.

I had actually already bought two other pair (from here and here), and they were so darned cute I had to buy some more.

But hear me out.  First, my kid has the chubbiest feet you've ever seen, and it's really hard to find shoes that are thick enough.  (Yes, I know that StrideRite makes extra wide shoes, and no, they're not always wide enough.  Or cute enough.)  It's also really hard to find shoes that she won't pull off her feet the moment I put them on.  The moccasins fit perfectly and stay on her feet, and they must be comfortable because she doesn't try to take them off.  And when I pull them off after hours of playing, her feet aren't sweaty.

So judge me all you want.  I'm judging me too, but I just can't help myself.

{Four.}

Oh goodness, y'all.  I think that's all I've got.  I guess confession number four is that I am the world's most uninspired blogger.

Feel like confessing with me?  Link up with Leslie, and tell us your deep, dark secrets.  Or a few random thoughts that come to mind.  Whichever you prefer.

Those moccasins are the cutest thing ever! My daughter had chubby feet and tall feet, so finding shoes for her was maddening. If they had a strap over the foot, they weren't going on hers. Thankfully as she's gotten older her feet have slimmed up. Now she has more shoes than I do.

Hi Ryan! I'm a new follower popping in from Leslie's blog. First of all, love the hair, and secondly, those are the cutest baby shoes! I did a little retail therapy this week too. I had to stop myself from buying more! I hope you'll come check out my confessions too!

I personally love the hair! I'm letting mine grow again…I always feel more like myself with long hair.

Chubby baby feet = too cute. No shame in having a pair of moccasins in each color!

K has fat feet too but I just can't bring myself to purchase StrideRite shoes for her.
Your hair looks amazing! :)

1. Love your hair!
2. I can only imagine how hard it is to find shoes for wide baby feet, ugh! So Sorry! Have you tried salt water sandals? We love them for Lilly and the straps are adjustable, so it might be a good option for Grace. Lilly's feet aren't wide, but they sweat a lot so we like having a good, sturdy sandal option for her! :)

Cute haircut!

Your hair is beautiful!

I did the Whole30 and it was life changing. It not only teaches you how to feed your body better (real food), but it also helps you identify and break bad patterns and thoughts you might have associated with food. It's hard to start with but keep pushing on and it becomes easier. You can do it!
