Day 4 of my blogging streak!!
Wanted to thank you guys for being a part of my year this year! My SparkFriends are the best! I'm so lucky to have each and every one of you!
Tomorrow, my mom booked tickets in Chicago to see The Nutcracker on horseback! haha-probably will be pretty different :) All my siblings are going (I'm one of FIVE ;) as well as my two nephews (they are 8 and 2). It'll be quite the party!
I'm also teaching an orientation tomorrow at 9 AM EST for the SparkLive meetings...what are you guys thinking of them?
And now for my little shameless plug :) If you guys could, I'm trying to build up my "like" coaching page on Facebook :)..if you could head on over there, I'd really appreciate the support. I post motivational videos, articles, etc. for people trying to lose weight, gain confidence, and improve their life overall :) Growing the page keeps me motivated to continue learning...thanks guys! www.facebook.com/laurenelizabethward

So today marks day 3 of my streak! I have been getting organized to gear back up for the new year. I'm back at my dad's. He has some work he needs to me do for him and the holidays are allllmost here so I figured I'd come home early (I only live like 45 minutes away). Hung out with my parents today and went furniture shopping. My dad needs to buy some new furniture..him and his girlfriend broke up and some of the furniture left with her when she moved out
I have been reading a lot! Makes me sooo happy :) I feel 10x better when I'm reading. I love learning new things!! I just picked up "Dance of Connection" by Harriet Lerner. I don't know if any of you guys have ever read "Dance of Anger" (they're both psychology/self-help books), but this is by the same author. VERY good! I highly recommend "Dance of Anger". It was so funny, when I was reading it, everyone who saw me reading it was like, "Lauren...you don't have an anger problem, you never get mad!" haha-and....that's a problem! haha. Because it's not that I never get mad, I just was taught growing up that when you are mad or upset..not to talk about it. The book talks about how to deal with anger instead of suppressing it (or doing the opposite and overreacting, if that's more like you). I realllllly enjoyed it and recommend it foooor sure :)

Have a great day! Day 4 tomorrow :)

Hey there Sunshine! How are you guys today? :) I have been doing really well. I have been doing a ton of reading, which is nice because I had gotten away from it for a little while. I'm reading the book "Relax, You're Already Perfect"--which is a spiritual book by the founder of my coaching school. I really like it :). I also read a book on de-cluttering :). I need to get rid of essentially my whole entire room. haha. Not literally, but I seriously have so much STUFF I don't use :) How about you guys?
I think I'm going to re-start the 30 Day Shred. I was trying to do ChaLEAN Extreme every day..but on the weekends I travel and go back to my dad or mom's house. Kinda hard to bring like 100 pounds worth of weights back home ;). Much easier to bring 2 three pounders :).
I made my to-do list today...been feeling kinda overwhelmed lately (perfectionist in me ;) so I decided to stop setting long term goals for the time being and only focus on what I need to do right now. :) Of course, long term goals are always on my mind..but I'm not going to be doing too much planning for them for the time being. Probably a week or so :)
Went to a wedding reception this weekend..here's some pics :)
I will talk to you guys soon :)
If you guys could, I'm trying to build up my "like" coaching page on Facebook :)..if you could head on over there, I'd really appreciate the support. I post motivational videos, articles, etc. :) www.facebook.com/laurenelizabethward

Just continuing my blog streak! My grandpa isn't doing so well :(. He's 86, so he's ready to go..but he's taken a turn for the worse. The worst part about it is that my dad won't really let any details go because he's scared he'll scare us. Kinda stressed about it. :(. Hope you guys are having a good night though!
