Wood Watches For Men

Beautiful and stunning… those are the words that popped into my head when I opened the box. Truly breathtaking, and honestly I usually don’t get this excited over something unless it’s some running or fitness gadget. But Jord took my breath away with their wooden watches. .

If you’ve never heard of Jord before, they are known for their 100% natural, hand-finished authentic wood watches. Jord watches come in various styles and colors. From battery to hand wound, there is truly something for everyone. And if you are looking for an awesome way to present and store your watch, Jord does that too. Can you imagine giving this to someone as a gift?



The presentation alone in my opinion is a gift. But the beautiful watch inside will definitely bring smiles.

WIN Detergent Works Wonders

Image
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received WIN Detergent for free from WIN products in consideration for a gear review 

What's that smell? I just washed these. Anyone else ever have this issue? I found out the stinky way that washing with my same ole go-to detergent doesn't always work when it comes to workout gear.
I tried some home made ideas and that 'helped'. But I didn't feel that it eliminated all of the odor. Then I tried WIN.


I have sensitive skin so I was happy to see that not only does WIN come in fresh scent but it also comes in a dye and fragrance free version. I brought back a lot of smelly clothes from our long summer trip, and I'd like to report that (affiliate link)  WIN  removed all of the odor.

I Have A Confession To Make About My Weight

Image
I have a confession to make.... and it's definitely one that I'm not proud of. I thought that maybe going 'silent' would mean that I didn't have to deal with it. But that's not the reality.

I've been eating my emotions.. ALL of my emotions. I'm happy - I eat. I'm sad - I eat. I'm angry - I eat. I'm stressed - I eat. I'm bored - I eat. And well, you get the picture.

I stepped on the scale at the gym... defeated doesn't even begin to explain how I felt. I knew. My clothes told me. I didn't need 'a scale' to tell me. I knew. I kept saying that I was just 'bloated' or this or that. But the cold hard reality is no... I've gained more weight and slipped back into the all or nothing mentality.

When I got injured from the dog (When the Unexpected Happens) all exercise basically stopped. I was upset in a lot of areas in my life, and I turned to food for comfort. Add a lot of traveling this Summer (think fast food whil…

The Woman I Know I Can Be

I'm trying to write this via mobile - so please ignore typos and weird spacing :)

This past week hasn't been an easy one. In fact, I know it's going to take me some time to work through some current issues. 
But it's made me realize that I have two choices - let it destroy me or let it make me stronger. I'm choosing stronger.

Never Give Up On You

It's easy for me to encourage others - in life - in their goals - their dreams. But I often struggle to encourage myself.

Do you have that problem or is it just me? I often struggle to meet my own expectations that I have for myself.. actually a lot of the time I sabotage my goals before I start them... by having negative thoughts about achieving them.

Why oh why do I have such a hard time believing in me?!?  But I do struggle with that.. but it doesn't mean that I always have to... and I don't intend to.
