This cold Midwest weather has me dreaming of the warm Caribbean ocean 🌊 In 9 weeks we’ll be boarding the Harmony of the Seas cruise ship for our 3rd EARNED trip in 3 years! I’ve gotten invited on these trips by helping woman get started on their health & fitness journeys, help them with meal planning & portion control, and offer them motivation and support while on their journey! I’m forever grateful for these programs that helped me lose weight, feel confident, & allow me to use this platform to help others get the same results! #weightlossinspiration #tropicalvacation #sandybeach #travelstyle #fitmomlife #vacaymode #winterblues #travelmania #weightlosss #bikinigirls #csectionto6pack

Take me back to sunny day weenie roasts! #imisssummer #winterblues #makingmemories
Winter ❄️ here hurts sometimes 🥶 These infrared panels are strategically placed to increase your range of motion during a Barre or Pilates session but they can also help with seasonal blues. Be nice to yourselves. Blue light is out and red is in. 🔥💥☄️ #infraredlighttherapy #youglogirl #redlighttherapy #healingjourney #hotpilates #hotbarre #winterblues
I’ve had at least one kid home sick with me for the past 5 days 😷🤪 and we’re ALL getting a little stir crazy. (Ironic, after I just posted about how much we love to get outside!) . If you, too, are looking for some good ways to keep your boys busy while they’re stuck indoors — check out my #indoorboymom tag! Fun ideas for “inside activities” like making slime, Nerf targets, paper airplane competitions, our favorite YouTube channels (@cosmickidsyoga and @artforkidshub ) and lots more. 🎉 . Good luck to us all in surviving this winter. 💆🏼‍♀️🙃💙 #boymom
Weekend > Week #winterblues
Today I had plans. Things I wanted to do with the kids, adventures to go on... I wanted to go to yoga this morning, run to Costco and tackle organizing another room. That changed when this guy woke up sick... I could be grumpy about that (I hate a sudden change of plans), but today I will embrace the situation & take it easy. ⌛️ This may be an obvious solution to the situation... like, duh. Did I really want to take my sick kid out and force fun into them? That’s not it. It’s having an entire day planned, things to do and expectations (of my own creation) on how today will play out. It keeps me calm, anxiety at bay and I know what comes next. But not today and I’m RE-training my brain that IT WILL STILL BE A GOOD DAY. ⏳ For anyone who battles this type of anxiety, a sudden change of plans can be a huge trigger. I know this about myself and constantly working on it.... and there’s no time like the present situation to work on these feelings, since we are stuck at home today. . . . . . #lifewithkids #sickkids #coldandfluseason #wheressummer #summertime #winterblues #midwestliving #mybaby #babyblues #momlife #thisismotherhood #anxietymom #ppa #makingeverythingbetter #bandaidkisses #bedheadbaby
These grey wintery days are sooo hard to get through. I struggle with motivation, getting things done, and wanting to take a nap all the time. But when the sun does shine, you can bet I’m chasing it all around the house, trying to capture its fleeting light in a frame to look back on and getting ALL the things done 🙌🏻 Our home doesn’t get much natural light, but most of the rooms are painted light and have lots of white accents which helps to make it look lighter and brighter! If you’re struggling with how dark and dreary your home feels in the winter, maybe try adding some whites and lighter colors to offset the dark and if you’re feeling adventurous, paint the walls white! I don’t think you can ever have too much white! I follow a lovely account whose home is all white/neutrals and just looking at her pictures makes me cheery because of how bright it looks. Go check out @sarahjaneinteriors and see what a difference using light colors can do for your home ♥️ Double tap if you’re missing the warmth and sunshine as much as I am ☀️ . . . #whitesandneutrals #whitehomes #myneutralhome #whiteonwhite #simplecozynest #shabbychicdecor #mynesthome #farmhousestyle #myfarmhousecottagestyle #cozyfarmhouse #whitekitchencabinets #whitekitchen #modernfarmhousekitchen #winterblues #thisisroc #rochesterny #rochesterwinter #rochesterblogger #decorblogger #lifestyleblog #homeblogger #galvanized #galvanizeddecor #galvanizedgracehome
One of my favorite things to do on a cold winter day like today is snuggle up with our golden, Paddington. Puppy snuggles are a great way to keep the winter blahs away! 💕
You want “Yo” come back in May :) #entryway #entrywaydecor #graffiti #winterblues
You were red, and you liked me because I was blue. But you touched me, and suddenly I was a lilac sky. Then you decided purple just wasn't for you. #everythingisblue #hispills #hishands #hisjeans #blue #mood #winterblues
This week is dragging for me. I don't know why when you go to work it's like time stands still, but when you are not at work, you enter a warp zone where time moves 1000 x faster. . Weeks like this make me grateful that I can come home and workout with my guy. It helps me relieve stress, tension and fustration. . What are some things you do to decompress? . . . #itsonlywednesday #itsnowedagain #januaryislikeamonthofmondays #winterblues #cabinfever #alreadyneedanothervacation #beingpregnantdoesnthelp #comeonspring #ineedsomesunshine

#Repost @glensideacu with @get_repost ・・・ ❄️ Winter Blues ❄️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The winter months can be difficult for many of us. Fewer hours of sunlight, more hours of darkness, and cold temperatures that chase us inside can cause feelings of depression, isolation, and general blues. Here are some great ways to fend off the doldrums of winter! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Get outside and moving every day. Staying active will help boost your mood and energy -- even just a walk around the neighborhood gets the blood flowing and helps you soak up the winter sun for some much-needed vitamin D! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Cook warming foods. Think stews, soups, curries, homemade bread. Black and white pepper, ginger, garlic, cayenne, walnuts, green onions, and chili peppers are particularly warm and stimulating. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Light therapy. On darker days use a broad-spectrum light therapy box to mimic natural light -- which can help improve mood and sleep when used regularly during daylight hours. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4. Connect with others. Winter can be an inherently isolating time -- social activities slow down and people tend to nest. On the flip side, it can be an excellent excuse to get together! Plan a potluck, book club, knitting group, clothing swap, or party just for the heck of it. There is plenty of fun to have indoors! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5. Acupuncture has been shown to treat depression by modulating the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems. One study noted that "acupuncture treatments have been shown to increase nocturnal melatonin secretion and reduce insomnia and anxiety", meaning it can help regulate your circadian rhythm, too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stay warm & well! . . . #acupuncture #acupunctureworks #traditionalchinesemedicine #chinesemedicine #tcm #mindbodyspirit #bodymindspirit #qi #chi #qiflow #energy #energymedicine #medicine #balance #health #holistic #holism #depression #anxiety #saddisorder #winter #wintertime #winterblues

Resting while sick is for the birds ✌🏼 I’ve been fighting a head cold since Sunday. Took Monday off from working out to just be lazy and give my body a break. Breaks over. I knew I had to push myself yesterday & today or I would start using this cold as an excuse. It’s okay to take a break if you’re not feeling well. But as soon as you start feeling a little better get your body moving. The endorphin boost will give you the energy to power through your day! #pushingthrough #cantbreath #timeforanap

I miss the sun. Michigan gets a little dreary this time of year. Taking extra vitamin D keeps my spirits up, and catching that glimpse of morning sun before it hides behind the clouds. How do you deal with winter blues? #wintersun #michigan #puremichigan #winterblues #seasonal #sunrays #woods #kitchennotepad #vitamind #vitaminddeficiency #sunworship #morninglight #goodmorning
Sleeping in on a cold day - It’s a trap.

There isn't a lot of sunshine out right now, but you can make the most out of what is there with a nice stained glass window. #vintageshopping #stainedglass #winterblues #wintergreen
My face apparently got the cheerful memo in this picture 😂😂😂 hoping you all have a cheer-filled day, despite the gray gloom of January! Here is your reminder TAKE YOUR VITAMIN D!! (Seriously low vitamin D levels mimic depression, which is directly effected by the zero sun ☀️), and part of the reason we all feel so humdrum this time of year!! Get your levels checked and beat the blues! #vitamindadvocate #seriouslygetyourlevelschecked #beattheblues #winterblues

Got the #winterblues over here. It's much worse than previous years... The only thing that's different in my life is that I'm walking Peter to and home from school every day, as opposed to last year when we drove to preschool... But being outside is supposed to help... Right?? Well it's not. So now I'm going to try drinking a brightly colored smoothie as I stare at photos of palm trees. 🌴😭
Watched a gorgeous, super crisp print of MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON! From the 75th Anniversary Bluray. Big thanks to my pal Derek. Still one of my favourite inspirational movies and a cinematic antidote needed today for hope and indestructible optimism!

Everyone’s favorite Tortilla Soup is back today! See you for lunch!
Mid-January check-in. Everyone present and accounted for? How are we with sleep? Enough/not too much? How’s the exercise? Are you getting your vitamins? Talking with a therapist or friends? For me, this winter has been the most challenging season in a lot of years. Some of it is SAD-related, but much of it is due to other circumstances in my life. I feel a corresponding drive to take care of my body and mind so I can stay engaged. Its weird - but I turned 40 this year and decided, welp, time to be smarter about things. 🤷🏻‍♀️ It’s hard to explain the interplay between fatigue and self-care. They push and pull each other. Neither one wins outright. But I think I can affirm, even in my hardest season, that gentle physical movement and regular vitamins/prayer/rest/therapy/antidepressants (whew!) DO HELP. So this post is a friendly side hug and loving reminder to not give up on your body when you’re SAD. It’s winter now, but spring is coming. #fightSAD #seasonaldepression #seasonalaffectivedisorder #winter #winterblues #emotionalhealth #mentalhealth #depression #gentlemovement

Take me back to no-jacket weather ☀️ The cold winter weather gets me down and kills my motivation - that and having still so much to do to put our house together 🙈 What do you guys do to get motivated in these cold months? ...aside from daydreaming about summer weather 🤷🏻‍♀️ ___________ In the meantime, I posted a blog with my winter wish list for my closet 🙌🏻 All key pieces that would work in your closet now and transition perfectly for spring...whenever it decides to come!

Too much is going on in my life recently. There's moments when I feel overwhelmed and mentally drained... Recent news about one of our city's president being stabbed during the biggerst charity event in Poland has been the last drop. I don't like watching my homeland like this... This isn't the country I've dreamt to come back to. It's sad and depressing... In moments like this I'm trying hard to focus on the positive and often times I fail... I'm just a human after all. But I'm grateful for my family and those few friends who stay. Thank you 😘💕 . . . . . #doyogabehappy #yoga #yogapose #yogatime #polishgirl #polishmom #polishblogger #fitfam #fitnessblogger #toughtimes #ineedthesun #yogasession #jogawdomu #seethegood #bethechangetheworldneeds #bossgirlbloggers #fitnclassyyogazone #behappyalways #positivevibes #staypositive #yogasession #myyogajourney #yogaeverydamday #winterblues #cwiczymy

This one’s simple! Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables everyday. (And if a lot seems overwhelming, how about “some?) 😉 ▫️ Winter escorts cold, flu, and sugar season right on in and that’s a perfect storm for knocking you off your best game for awhile. I used to get incredibly sick every winter: sinus infections, walking pneumonia, bronchitis, and a chronic cough were all my norm. Since I changed my diet, I haven’t had any of these. So I’ll tell you what, I’m sold on eating the rainbow! 🌈 Avoiding the dreaded winter illnesses is a happiness booster for me! . ▫️ In addition to the nutritional and physiological benefits of eating fruits and veggies, I’ve found that when I eat veggies like a boss, there’s something about it that makes me feel like my life is more in control and everything feels less chaotic. That alone causes me to feel darn good. I’ve had many lunches in my lifetime that consisted of a diet soda and a candy bar and I’ll tell you what, it never put my mind in a good place. When I take the time to sit down and eat some thoughtfully prepared and healthy food, I feel settled and calm. . ▫️ So trade in the diet soda and candy bar lunch for a salad today and see what you think! It has magical powers for me! 🥗 . Now it’s your turn! What do you think? Are you a bit skeptical or are you convinced there’s a connection between produce and positivity? . .

It was a great one to discuss! ❤️) . . #winter #winterblues #produce #eattherainbow #fruit #veggies #eatwellfeelwell #eatwell #happy #headspace #clarity #productivity #happiness #beatthewinterblues #salad #saynotosoda #soda
