Accountability 101


When things go wrong in life, as an adult, we figure it out. When things go wrong in life, as a child, we look to our parents. As a child, we are not expected to figure out the hard things. we are only expected to be a child. Sleeping, playing, learning, growing, and eating a vegetable every now and then – the good life, right?!

We all grow up, and with adulting comes accountability. We become accountable for our actions whether they are right or wrong. We are taught to tell the truth, and that what we do when no one is looking matters. Somehow in all of our daily walks in life we forget. We forget that we have to be accountable for our own actions or inaction, even if no one is there to remind us of what is right or wrong.

The problem with not remembering to hold ourselves accountable is that we allow ourselves to make excuses for the actions or lack there of in our lives. It starts with a commitment to do something. Day one, great! Day two, momentum is still there. Day four, a struggle – but still committed. Day 10, why are you even doing this? Day 14, give up. The cycle continues, because every time there is a push within for change, something has to happen to force that change.

We are not meant to simply grow up, and stay the same from whatever age it is that people think they have arrived at, for life. Life doesn’t work that way. However, it can. It can work out that way, if we allow our selves to stunt our growth with excuses. It can work out that way, if we stop holding ourselves accountable. Imagine how your life would be if no one expected anything from you, including yourself. Imagine if you only did the things you wanted to do, and only when you wanted to do them. Sounds like a very selfish and lonely life. And, I can only imagine how healthy mentally and physically you would be living this way.

Take account for your actions today and everyday. We all seem to move away from this concept when there is no one there to point out what we are or are not doing. It doesn’t matter whether or not someone else will hold you to something. It matters whether or not you will hold yourself to your own actions. We all have goals and dreams. Some of us will hold ourselves to personal growth, and some of us will make excuses and bury our talents in the sand. You see, without accountability, we aren’t able to fulfill the purpose God has for us. There is a purpose on each of our lives. Sometimes we forget to listen to the small voice inside that is holding us to a different standard, because it sounds like something you’ve never heard or done before. Know that all the talent you need is already there to accomplish your purpose. It may just be buried under all the excuses and sand. Let today be a day where you hold yourself accountable for every action you take today. Mentally shift your thoughts with a sand shake off. See yourself buried in the sand. Then, see yourself trying to lift your legs and arms to get up from the sand. Finally, see yourself breaking free from the sand. Watch as all the sand is removed, falling to the ground, freeing you. Every talent within you is at your disposal. Shake the sand off, and take on your purpose one day at a time.

Allow Me To Reintroduce Myself…

Hello Mug

The Skinny Plus needs to be reintroduced! The blog has been silent for so long, and in this silence I’ve been taking time to sort things out with the direction of this wonderful blog. The key word is “I.” I’ve been trying to figure out the next move, what to do, and questioning how to transition this blog into something greater. I’ve been doing all this thinking, but I’ve gotten no where in the silence. I’ve gotten no where, but I’ve continued to hear a voice inside say, “just begin again.” I’ve heard that same voice say, “just start.” My moments of prayer have lead to me hearing God say these things, but shortly after I heard… I questioned. I asked: “what am I going to write about, what if no one wants to read the things I write about now, what if I can’t encourage anyone, what if people see all my flaws, can I really start again without a new logo or a new site, how can I write about the hard things when I haven’t overcome some of them in my own life, and so on and so on.

These questions have flooded my mind every time I sit down and get ready to write. Naturally, after I go through all the doubt in my head, I leave another draft unfinished. Days have gone by. Weeks and months have passed. I have felt that during all this time, I have done nothing but question the talent that God gave to me. Each day that passes, I bury my talents in the ground waiting for that perfect moment. I wait, and I wait, and I wait. Each day that I have waited, is a day that my perfect moment passes. I could not tell anyone exactly what I was waiting for, because the perfect moment I was waiting for was unattainable. If you have ever been around someone who has an excuse for every solution given to start something, you know exactly what I mean by saying my perfect moment was unattainable. I would have moments of clarity that supported the need to start The Skinny Plus again; and they would range from comments of encouragement from my husband, to a co-worker saying an encouraging word, and to random individuals making a comment about something written ages ago. Nonetheless, I still had an excuse to support my continued silence on this platform.

The feeling that you are and need to be doing something greater than what you are doing, but doing nothing is the most frustrating feeling ever! This feeling is what I had been feeling over and over again. I was still stuck in my head, and I was still trying to figure out the perfect plan. I have since left “I” behind, because truth be told… I don’t know everything, but I do know how to live! I do know that we all have to give God something to bless in this world. If we don’t put forth effort, even in our moments of doubt, He has absolutely nothing to work with. I intend to keep living, to gain experience and wisdom to add to The Skinny Plus and to my little world. I pray that The Skinny Plus becomes little pieces of somethings that God can bless and make into big things that impact our families, women, and children for years to come. Our purpose is not to simply wake up, work, and die. We are meant for so much more! Allow me to reintroduce myself: This is The Skinny Plus. A blog that WILL be transformed into something more that will empower our women and families, and will bring light into this world. Please follow me on this journey, and I hope each of you start your own journey too!

 

 

Rise Up – Heels and Sports

I love everything about football season – tailgating, game day parties, game winning plays that seem to have you on the edge at the end of each game, and I especially love a hard hit! Now, I know that it may seem as if I know nothing about sports or have no idea what goes on in a football game – that isn’t the case! My dad has always been the ultimate football fan. Football season equates to, “Dad isn’t going anywhere because there is a game on.” We don’t ask my dad to do anything, or bother him the entire season #Truestory.

 

Now, my husband and I don’t have the ability to shut everything down to focus in on every game during the season. If we could… I don’t know… maybe. It’s hard for me to sit still too long. We have found ways to enjoy the season with a toddler in tow. It isn’t all that hard. You have to find kid friendly environments, and plan! When we know we want to go out to watch a game with our little one, we have to be aware. Here’s a good list of things to keep in mind to have an enjoyable football watching experience:

  • Afternoon game – early nap prior to the game is a must!
  • Bring a tablet – download favorite games and shows (just in case there is no Wi-Fi)
  • Outside tailgating – be sure there is plenty of room for your kid to run, and that other families will be bringing their children (it’s no fun being the only parents there with your kid, and your kid will be bored)
  • Pick restaurants with some fun things to distract your kid with how long they have actually been sitting (i.e. Buffalo Wild Wings – provides tablets for toddlers, and Red Robin has little chalk boards for children to play with).
  • Take a walk during half-time – this works best when at a restaurant and you plan on staying the entire time. Go outside, and let your kid roam freely for a little while. This will give you and your child a break from sitting so long.
  • Take extra snacks – sounds crazy if you are already in an eating establishment, but it works. You’ve probably eaten by half-time, and it is inevitable that your child will ask for a snack or something else to sip on during the second half. Save yourself some money, and keep your child from eating more french fries by having your own snacks available during the second half.
  • House parties are your friend – not the house parties we went to in college and in our 20s! I’m talking about the gatherings with friends and family that are usually pretty chill. Friends with other kids are usually around, when children get sleepy – there is usually a guest bedroom to lay them down in, and when a meltdown occurs – it’s not so bad (everyone there probably understands).

So, there is my basic checklist to survey Football season with a toddler in tow! These tips work for us, most of the time. You can’t plan for everything. Know when to leave, because an unhappy toddler in the wrong environment is no fun for you and everyone else around. Share your tips, if you have some that have worked!

Outfit details: My outfit is a combination of items from the closet! I’m not a jersey wearing girl, but I had to figure out a way to represent! Knit hat: My husband’s, Red Shirt: Forever 21 (Similar Here), Short Sleeved Jacket: Rainbow (Similar Here), and Skirt: Fashion to Figure.

I hope each of you enjoy Super Bowl LI today! I know the Falcons will #RiseUp and win one for Atlanta today!

Back to Reality – Post Election Reflection

Thanksgiving is over, and now it’s back to reality for most of us. Starbucks better be ready today!

I rarely share anything about my political views on social media, or in any setting outside of the confines of my personal circles for a number of reasons. One, being my job. I just can’t. I work in a position that somewhat reports to, connects with, and networks with elected officials. There will be no blue, red, green or whatever party colors displayed on any of my posts intentionally to support a political party. And, you will never get any rants about which side is better or about what crazy thing a politician said.

However, I will comment on the fact that history was close to being made this past election. A huge glass ceiling was about to be broken, and I was feeling all kinds of blessed to potentially see a woman make history. Side note: I feel this way about any woman who has broken a glass ceiling in any area of professional success (Shirley Chisolm, Patricia Roberts Harris, Patricia Roberts Harris, Madeleine Albright, Maya Angelou, Misty Copeland, etc.). Now, one glass ceiling was broken this year for sure! Hilary Clinton is the first female presidential nominee for a major United States political party. However, I think there were a number of women along with their friends, daughters, sisters, and moms hoping for the big win on election night.

Our daughter looking on as I completed my ballot. The actual ballot is not in the picture. I don’t want no problems behind this innocent picture.

My husband and I took our daughter with us to vote, and in the back of my mind, I thought this is a moment I want to capture for her. I want her to look back and know that she was a part of this election, even though she was not the legal age to vote. I still feel this way, but my thoughts on why I felt this need so strongly are more clear post election hype.

Raising a girl today is a little different.Women are less focused on sitting still, legs closed, and being pretty. We are more focused on empowerment, equality in the workplace, equality in education, more opportunities in education with programs for girls focused on STEM courses, equal pay, and so many other things that move toward a more empowered woman no matter what her path in life is. Then, we want our girls to hold to some moral standard on top of all this. Knowing this, I really wanted my daughter to have a win like this one to reflect on in her future. Today, it seems that no matter how much more empowered we become as women, men seem to still dominate. Even in areas where women are dominate, such as non-profits, men seem to hold more leadership positions.

We can continue to empower our girls. However, the reality is that we only have a limited number of examples to show to our girls. I may be able to look up a Forbes list, but I doubt my daughter will know those names in our discussions later in life. Or, will she even be interested? And heck, will I even be an example to her or not?  I believe that more glass ceilings will continue to break. But, will it be enough for the generation of women coming up today? Will it be enough to shatter the thought that you can not have a family and successful career – one has to suffer? Will it be enough to shatter the stereotype of what a true leader looks like? Will it simply be enough to encourage our daughters to lean in, be present at the table, speak up, and all those other actionable phrases we use to coach women today?

img_3675

I wanted a win for my daughter. Honestly, I really needed a win myself. Women are making big moves everyday, and we may or may not hear about them. I’m hoping we start hearing and seeing more of those wins for women today, and the women of tomorrow. So, here we are, back to reality before the Christmas holiday. There is still time to make some moves before the year ends! You may not be running for president, but at least be running for something that makes you a better woman/role model. You never know who’s watching you break your own personal ceiling.

 

 

Little Skinnies: FabFitFun Fall Box 2016

img_3213
I’ve done a post on FabFitFun boxes before. I actually enjoyed the welcome box, spring, and summer boxes so much that I’ve stuck with them. The price used to make me second guess the box every time I would get a notice right before my box would ship, but I’ve stayed with them – $49.99 VIP price and all. So, my Fall box came toward the beginning of October. I am not a lover of Fall or Winter – like some people. I will never be running to Starbucks for the return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Fall and Winter just aren’t my seasons – but I do love the two major holidays within those months (Thanksgiving and Christmas)!

So, back to this box. There are a lot of wonderful goodies in this box for the Fall lover, and even I had to admit that the box put me in better spirits for the season.

The Goodies:

  1. Modcloth Blanket Scarf
  2. The BrowGal Brow Gel
  3. Mullen & Sparrow French Lavender Body Oil
  4. Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum
  5. Tumbler
  6. Cottonelle Wipes
  7. Spongelle Body Wash Infused Buffer & A Spongelle Percentage Off Offer
  8. Pure Cosmetics Nude Eyeshadow Palette
  9. A Coloring Book & Color Pencils
  10. Trial Size – Secret Deoderant

I love the blanket scarf, and it is super cozy! I have heard from the FabFitFun forum that the it may unravel a little too quickly. I haven’t had that problem. I like it just fine with the tumbler in hand. And, that tumbler is filled with a macchiato – not some PSL mess!


The brow gel was amazing, and I made sure to post my use on snapchat.

The oil has been perfect! It smells wonderful. The smell isn’t over powering. I use both the oil and the Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum before I settle for bed.

I have not had a chance to put the eyeshadow palette to use, nor have I used the body wash infused buffer. The buffer smells so good, I did not want to use it on a routine shower or bath. I want to put it to use for a special bath occasion. The same with the eyeshadow palette.

The rest of the items were ok, but not my favorites. The cottonelle wipes were put to use by our toddler, who thought they were her flush-able wipes. The coloring book and pencils are on my nightstand, and have yet to be used. Maybe one day, I will color to de-stress after a long day. Then, I can tell you if this coloring thing really works. And, the deodorant went right in my gym bag.

As you can see, these boxes definitely give you some good items! I think, enough to be worth the $39 or $49 every 3 months. The Fall boxes have all been shipped, but the Winter boxes will be out soon! Sign up here and get 20% off: FabFitFun – 20% Off

 

Thanksgiving Fresh!

I’ve been struggling with the budget at home lately. We have a lot of work that needs to be done on the house we are currently in, and none it will be cheap! We are blessed to have all we have, but the things we are facing require us to SAVE! Keeping that in mind, I was getting so discouraged about wearing the same old outfits that I have been wearing since last year to family gatherings this week. I know what you all are thinking: you blog about clothes!?! I do blog about clothing and fashion from time to time, but that doesn’t mean I spend a fortune on it. Also, life changes just as the seasons do. There are seasons in mine and my hubby’s life where we are able to spend more and do more. In this season, we are saving to finally remodel our house and to make some other changes.

So, as I went on with life thinking of various ways to put new spins on what I already had in my closet, I found myself in the right place at the right time. I had a meeting in another city for my job, and afterwards I found myself with about 30 to 45 minutes of time before my next meeting that day. So, I drove in route to my next location, and noticed a Cato’s Fashions. I’ve got a few minutes, so why not stop?! And, I’m glad I did!

I’ve been sleeping on Cato’s for a long time. I think I went in one day about six months ago in search of a specific item, and came out empty handed. I just began to pass them by from that point on. Sorry Cato’s, but we are definitely friends again!

I actually bought 4 items, and links are below. However, I only took pictures for my favorite two items. I will be putting both of these dresses on at some point during the Thanksgiving shuffle.

This Faux Suede Midi Dress was on sale in store for $14.99! It was perfect in every way! The material stretches, and it gives… just in case you were planning your outfit around your meals. I was so surprised, because the dress ran small. I am normally an 18/20. I had to get this dress in a 16. I paired it with some basic accessories. The earrings were on sale at Cato’s, as well – $1.99!



The next dress, I could not find on the website to save my life! Ladies, you may only be able to get this dress in store. And, I wish you luck, because this yellow/orange hued midi dress was only $9.99! I was in heaven when I put this dress on! It runs small. I am wearing a 16 in this dress, as well. If I find a similar dress in my searches, I will definitely share. The earrings are another sale item at Cato’s – $1.99!


Let me just tell you, I am one happy woman! I got two dresses, two pairs of earrings, an Asymmetrical Zip Pencil Skirt ($6.99), A Knit Sweater Duster (Similar Here – Vest), and Lace Up Flats – $7.99 for $50.00! To God be the Glory! Have an awesome Thanksgiving with friends and family! Keep checking out the blog! I plan to post over the Thanksgiving break!

Mom Shaming is Not Ok, Love and Support is

Special shout out to all the first time moms out there! Another special shout out to moms of multiple children that range in toddler years! Let me not forget the moms of multiples, triplets, quadruplets, etc.! Wait, l can’t forget the single moms! We also have to shout out those moms working to develop careers and maintain home! And, what about those moms who thought they were done parenting, but God decided to bless them with another little one – 10 to 15 years after their last child. The point is, the list can go on and on with the different lifestyles that a lot of moms are working within while trying to raise the next generation.

We all know this, and we are all aware of the fact that we are all working with different situations. So, where does the mom judgment and shaming come from? We are all doing the best we can out here, right? But, for some reason some moms feel the need to make comment on how other moms are out here just trying to survive! Trust me, I see you moms out there! I know some of you are really hanging on by that last chicken nugget your kid didn’t eat! And, I support you!

a-mom-will-have

There! I said it! I support you! How hard is it to show, in our actions and words, support? It isn’t very hard, but time after time we judge instead of supporting. I remember talking to another mom about my process for making our daughter’s food. And, as soon as I started going into detail about how I pick fresh organic veggies and fruits from the store to puree, the subtle eye roll happened. Now, I understand that it sounds so extreme to go through that process for some moms. I also understand that time is not on your side when you are doing this. I can recall the many nights up making food for our baby, and wishing I could let go of the need I felt to make our little one’s food. Reality took care of that for me. I took a more demanding job, and the days/nights of making fresh pureed foods went out the door. I settled for the best organic brands I could buy. Then, I settled on the best rated brands organic or not. Now, I am thankful if she decides she likes chicken enough to eat some frozen Tyson Anytizer’s. Don’t judge, Tyson does wonderful things with chicken. And, Publix is always making my life so easy with the buy one get one on Tyson and Purdue products. But, back to the eye roll. My dialogue about my process for Leyah was in no way a jab or dig at the other mom. The reality was that I was tired as all get out doing all that I was doing – working full time, and caring for our home. If she had even given me the chance to finish talking before her eye roll, I would have went on to ask her about what she does to make sure her family is fed. And, I would have gladly welcomed some new suggestions. You see, I am a first time mom. We all know that first time moms do the most. It’s only because we think we have to, and because the judgement is real. I didn’t need an eye roll that day. I needed some support, and I needed a mom secure enough in her parenting skills to say, it’s ok.

Support means saying, “it’s ok.” Those words mean so much to a mom who is suffering from whatever unrealistic expectations that some magazine or baby expert site have put in her head as the only way to ensure your child is perfect in every way. It’s easy to judge, but hard to accept. You see, saying, “it’s ok,” means that we accept whatever is being said or done. It’s ok, means that I may not carry my infant in a Moby wrap, but I accept and appreciate the moms that do. Those children may grow up to be the true lovers and peacemakers of the world. It’s ok, means that I may not let my child cry it out, but I accept the mom who does.

Truth is, every mom needs to hear “it’s ok,” you’re awesome,” you are enough,” you’re doing a great job,” and any other supportive phrase you can think of. Even if we don’t all agree on the how, we all agree on the outcome. The only outcome most of us are expecting is that our children feel loved. It’s ok to show love in different ways, and it’s ok if we don’t all agree, but it’s not ok to shame another mom for simply trying to love the best way she knows how.  Next time you talk to that new mom, check yourself. Are your words, tone, and body language supportive; or are you passing judgement?

I got the inspiration for this post from a post from Parents Magazine (Found Here). I will leave you all with this wonderful video from Similac. Please watch it until the end. It will not be a waste of time.

Blessings and Blues

The blog has not had much TLC over the last month or so. I can tell you guys about all the wonderful things I’ve been up to. But, the reality is that all those wonderful tales of time not being on my side; taking care of my home; my job consuming my life; etc. are just some nice explanations to justify my lack of organization and time management. I mean really, could I not have gotten one blog completed in the last month or so?

Well, here I am now! I’ve been all over the place with things – hence the lack of organization. It’s hard to organize your life when you don’t quite know the direction you are going in. It is easy to wake up every morning, go to work, and do routine things. However, if you have a spark inside of you, there is always something tugging at you day and night that creates an uneasiness in the routine. I’ve been experiencing that spark, pull, uneasiness, or whatever you want to call it lately. So, it’s been hard for me to just go through the routine day to day. I haven’t quite figured out the plan or purpose God has for me. I do know that it is more than the routine. I know that whenever I feel that uneasiness in my spirit, I plan to make a move. I may not know where or why, but I plan to move!

Now, let’s be real. A move doesn’t mean I’m changing the world in one post, making a large investment in whatever, or creating a business in a matter of minutes. A move means simply that. I’m going to move. For example, this blog post is a move. Entering the Ashley Steward Model Search was making a move. Trust me, I went back and forth on entering for a week! Everything inside me said go for it, but for some reason the routine was getting the best of me. I made excuse after excuse to not take an updated picture. I used the daily routine as an excuse to justify not having time to take a picture or to do a post. Finally, my husband (@VisualbyT) reminded me on Sunday (the last day to submit entries) afternoon that I had asked him to take pictures for this opportunity. I fixed my mouth to say OK, to get dressed, and to make an effort to get at least one good shot. And, I was truly amazed! The end result are these beautiful shots!

I wore a pair of Eloquii shorts that are simply perfect for me. I really am not a shorts person, but these are not your average shorts. Hopefully, they will be available next spring/summer. However, I do plan to wear them into the Fall with tights. The eyelet detail ads a classiness that works for me. The only con to these shorts is the side zipper. I am sure there is a reason so many plus size brands do this with pants, skirts, and shorts; but, I absolutely hate the side zipper! Someone tell me why? The shorts were true to size, and I had no complaints whatsoever. I wore a peplum top, which has been a part of my closet for sometime now. Instead of a cute sweatheart or pointy heel, I went for a cute ankle bootie. It’s Fall isn’t it?!

I am thankful that my hubby was there to keep the spark alive with a little motivation. Sometimes that’s all we need. I don’t know what the outcome of the Ashley Stewart model search will be. However, I do know that if you don’t move, you aren’t giving God anything to bless. Get moving people! Have a blessed day!

Working It Out

Women have a built in ability to simply work things out. No matter how many hours are in a day, or how few resources are available, we seem to just work it out. So, I’m sure any woman can understand my frustration with not being able to simply… work out. Seriously, I have been a human yo-yo with my weight, eating habits, and workout discipline the last few months. The struggle is all too real!

I had begun to doubt my ability to be the strong woman I usually know myself to be. Standing in the mirror saying – “You are wonderfully and beautifully made in His image. You can accomplish and achieve all things, because your strength comes from above” – was no longer holding the same uplifting and motivational boost it once held before. My faith hadn’t changed, but my faith in myself and my ability to push through had definitely changed. Truthfully, I thought it was gone. I wasn’t able to find the motivation to do workouts at 9:00 pm or 10:00 pm like I had done so long ago.

*side note: yes, I say the statement above to myself almost every morning!

The reality is that life has changed for me. We never really think about how external changes effect everything going on inside. I was trying to work out and navigate life like I did years ago. That makes no sense, right? But, it made sense to me when I became frustrated about things not being as easy as before. Of course I could work out at 9 or 10 pm before… I wasn’t a wife and I didn’t have a little one who fights her 8:30 pm bedtime well until after 9:00 pm. I didn’t have the same responsibilities. My job did not demand extra hours of work outside of the traditional 9:00 to 5:00. Things have changed, and the reality is that I will probably never go back to the days of extreme workouts at all times in the night. But, that doesn’t change this one fact: I was not happy with where I was with my body.

Here’s the mantra, “I can and will change the things I can change.” There are so many things that I am not in control of, but these things… what I put in my mouth & how I treat my body… are things I have control of. Though I may not go hard in the gym daily, I do make sure I get some cardio in at least 3 to 4 times a week. If you are a curvy girl, I recommend getting some great workout gear that won’t have your thighs on fire. Recently, I invested in a couple of items from Lane Bryant’s Livi Active line. The signature stretch active knee shorts have been great! I hate that I always have to find some leggings or some biker shorts to wear under my traditional work out shorts to keep my thighs from chaffing and hurting after a jog. Plus, it’s hot outside! Who wants to workout in 90 degree plus weather in leggings?

My frustration has become a form of some acceptance. I accept that things in my life have changed for the good, and that means making decisions that work for me at this stage in my life. My time is limited, and if my workout happens while playing with my little one, it’s a win for the family. I may not burn 800+ calories, but I am being active and spending time with my family. My choices revolve around a greater goal than simply looking a certain way. My choices revolve around my happiness and the happiness of my two loves. I may not be happy with my body, but I’m happy with the choices I’m making to change it now. The results will not be as fast, but the results will be there when they come. I’m working it out for the season my life is in now.

Share A Little Happiness

The world is filled with so much negativity. It is so hard to simply say yes to life when fear continues to show up. Every positive speaking person will tell you not to live in fear, but is that even realistic – especially with children? I’m constantly thinking about the world today, and the protection of my family. I do not have to list all the reasons that show up on the news or on my social media timelines daily that fuel these thoughts. But, I don’t let my constant thoughts keep us from living.
