Random Thoughts

I wanted to share some random thoughts today. 

Random Thought 1:
I posted this picture on Instagram this past weekend. I am so guilty of comparing myself to others in all aspect of my life: work, Crossfit and yes even blogging.  I think it's natural that we compare ourselves to others but remember to celebrate the accomplishments along the way and don't be hard on yourself.  As I tell my son, as long you tried your best - that's all it matters.  Sometimes, I need to remind myself to follow the same guidelines.

Random Thought 2:
Fall dressing is tough in Southern California (yeah..I know.. #firstworldproblems) and wearing a blanket scarf, even a sweater with a cute button up is sort of tough.  I must say, I was so excited that it didn't hit 90s this past weekend and no hot weather predicted this week.  Things like this lightweight sweater vest add a layer without the heat.  

Random Thought 3:
I talked about my problem with having to eat on the run in this post.  Thank you all for your input and ideas.  Since that post, I have been packing a lunch tote full of cut up veggies with hummus, fruits, beef jerky and nuts to keep me satisfied.  I did the Whole30 a few months ago and it worked really well but it requires a lot of planning.  I am trying to be realistic with my busy schedule and I am following 80/20 rule.  Be good most of the time and don't be so hard on yourself.  I have also pretty much eliminated process food and sugars from my diet.  It's working good so far, I am down 5 pounds!

Random Thought 4:
I bought these Toms Wedge Booties last year and was hoping that I would fall in love with them because everyone that has them raves how comfy they are.  Unfortunately, they did not work for me and returned them.  I was in Target the other day and saw that all their boots were 20% off so why not check them out.  These booties looks nearly identical and it's 1/3 of the price so I took a chance on them.  I wore them to work on Friday (outfit below) and they are so comfy.  They are so comfortable that I went back and bought the black ones too.  

I have always been a firm believer in buying good quality shoes for styles that you know will wear year after year.  The funny thing is, I have another pair of boots from Target (see them in this post) and they are one of my favorite boots for walking. 

Random Thought 5:
Speaking of buying things in multiple, these pants (wearing them in the mint outfit below)...I just love they fit.  I also have them in white and so tempted to buy in them in navy as well. 

Random Thought 6:
Every fall I buy a new pair of leggings because they always seems to fade.  I guess I have been buying very cheap and low quality ones.  This year, I bought a pair of ponte pants and I think I finally found the holy grail of leggings.  They are thick and the seam adds a nice touch to it.  I have already wash them and it didn't seem to fade.
