Why you don’t need a thigh gap.

Thigh gap, anyone? Meh. If you lack confidence because your legs look nothing like the chicks on the Internet and magazines, here’s why you don’t need a thigh gap anyway.

I’m working on my first “in-home walking” video for you. So very excited this that I may run wild into the streets, neked, to proclaim my enthusiasms.

Don’t be THAT person.

I remember standing in front of my high class school during senior year and sharing with them that I wanted to become an astronaut. The laughter and mocking was pretty loud. Josie? Become an astronaut? The idea was absurd to them.

I’m obviously not employed by NASA today. My life took certain turns, dips, dives and head on collisions. Yet I’m still happy with who I’ve become.

So here’s the question:

What ideas and aspirations do you have for yourself today that you quickly cast off because it seems absurd or wildly out of reach? Too much pie-in-the-sky thinking, right? Are you that person in the crowd who mocks not others, but your own self instead?

Don’t be that person.

Don’t be the proverbial classmate that mocks and criticizes because your hope for tomorrow is just way too grand. Someone like you can’t possibly accomplish it. Is that what you told yourself?

I encourage you to think again. Don’t be that person who looks back on life 20 years from now with regret. Go out and accomplish your goals, no matter how big or small. I’m sure it won’t be an easy task for you, but staying on the grind and putting in the work to make it happen is much more worthwhile than looking back at what could’ve been.

Make it happen for yourself. Start today. And if you already started, don’t quit

Family Pictures: My Granddaughter and Greedy Baby. Plus, My Cousin Is In the Running for Miss Nevada!

Since I can’t get my sons, the hubs, or oldest daughter to cooperate with pictures, I’m happily loading up on pics of my granddaughter, Greedy Baby and my lovely cousin today!

First up is the granddaughter.

helena sue

She’s 7 months old now and no longer whiney. Hallelujah! The child has the cutest fat rolls on her legs I’ve ever seen. She’s all cushy & squeezy ‘n stuff and I love her. I’m babysitting this weekend, but I’ve requested that the child poop before she gets to my house. The poopy diaper part I’m not excited about. GAH!

And then there’s Greedy Baby.

Even though she was bullied at school for eating salad at lunch, she is still on the salad grind and I’m damn proud of her. As you can see from the pic, she’s a little bit cray-cray like her momma.

I’m also soooo excited to share the news that my beautiful younger cousin, Lindsey Pinapfel, is in the running for Miss Nevada United States!

lindsey

As you can see, my family is very diverse.  It’s one of the things I love about my extended clan. The pageant will be held in Las Vegas on April 19th. I wanted to share this here to show my support for Lindsey and to tell her that I love her.

Have a fabulous weekend, everybody! xo
