These are the type of days I pray for more strength. I pray for courage. I pray for wisdom. These are also days I thank God a little more.
I am learning to speak victory into my life instead of defeat. I shall not speak ill of my life. I shall not let negativity dictate my mood. I shall have faith. I will practice patience and trust in God. I know He does not bring me to something that I can’t get through. He will help me get through it, better, happier, and even more blessed. I am a child of God and I am highly favored.
I post a lot of unhealthy good food. I typically never eat too bad. I don’t like to eat too much junk food, except chips (my weakness), or fast food. I enjoy simple dishes. I also love comfort food. I believe in eating in moderation. I eat healthy for the most part 1. Because eating healthy is tasty 2. I like to work out. If I don’t feed my body the right nutrients I won’t have too much energy for the gym.
Emilia is my biggest inspiration. I can’t to cook her healthy, nutritious, and delicious meals. If I want her to eat healthy I definitely need to set the example for her.
Below you’ll see what I had for breakfast l, lunch, and dinner. In between I smacked on cherry tomatoes and drank lots of water.
With being a mommy I always look for cute comfy outfits that are quick to put on. Lately I’ve been into cute sneakers. I haven’t been back to my pre-pregnancy weight so my old jeans are too tight. But with the couple of new ones I bought, I love to wear them with cute comfy running shoes like these Nike Flyknit Racers. I like the all white with the black bottoms. Simple yet sticks out. I picked these up today and put them on right away. They are comfy and cute. Exactly what a mommy needs!
For a few years I’ve would tell myself ‘I’m going to upgrade my wardrobe’. Well that was my sophomore year in college and I’m 25 and have graduated now. I still haven’t really updated anything. I managed to donate most of my wearable clothing. Now I’m down to clothes that I can’t wear in public, either they are too small, outdated, or plain ugly.
I still struggle to commit to shopping for clothes. I always end up buying food. I don’t have the patience to go shopping anymore. Especially with my body weight being what it is. I just feel insecure and tired of trying to find anything that will fit and look good on me. I hope other mommies can relate because this mommy is in desperate need of a new look!
I am excited to see my hair slowly getting on it’s A game.
I love being a mommy and having a partner that wants to create a healthy lifestyle. Everything is about moderation. I don’t do any extreme “diets” nor do I starve myself. I eat what I like but make sure to pay attention to what I eat. I may indulge here and there but I never lose sight of my overall goal. Becoming a mother has motivated me to not only learning how to cook more meals but also learning how to cook Cambodian food. I want to be able to cook my cultures food for my children. I want to be able to pass along recipes to my children. I grew up eating Cambodian food and look forward to being able to feed my children all of the dishes I loved as a kid. I love food and I know my children will love food too, Emilia already does 😁
A few months after Emilia was boring my hair starting falling out in clumps. Around 6-7 months I started noticing my hair growing back especially towards the front of my hair. Eight and a half months now and my hair is looking fuller. My baby hairs are longer and I don’t look like a 5th grader that chopped her own bangs because she was upset with her parents. I have been going back and forth about dying my hair so my curls will pop more. I’m just so nervous, I’ve always had dark one tone hair. My curls are so nice though and I really want to go for something a little different.

I liberally applied bounce curl light gel throughout my wet hair in two sections. Clumped my hair then proceeded to scrunch it. Then soon after scrunching it I used my diffuser and started diffusing it.
