Self-Care for SeptemberScreen Shot 2013-09-04 at 5.42.22 PM

Fellow bloggers Kristi of Life Sprinkles and Erin of Neater Your Nest have teamed up to create this great challenge for September. It a great reminder this month to make sure you are taking care of yourself not only physically but mentally and spiritually. Don’t put yourself on the back burner! These ladies will be sending out a weekly newsletter with daily mini challenges. Sign up for the newsletter and commit to at least trying a few of their suggestions each week. Why? Because you are worth it and you have to invest in yourself to be able to invest in others.

Foam Rollers

After Wednesday’s Lululemon Sweat On Us sponsored class at Spark Barre, Pilates and Yoga I have come to the conclusion that I definitely need to invest in a foam roller. I’d only used a foam roller once before during a barre class, and if I wasn’t smitten before I definitely am now.

Thursday night as I lie in bed after a class that combined kettlebells, body bars and TRX, I was wishing I had roller of my own so I could roll that soreness right out. Look for a blog post as I determine which roller to buy and find some resources for stretches with the foam roller.

With Influenster you fill out information about yourself and the social networks you participate on to earn points and be selected for their VoxBoxes. Once you receive a VoxBox, which is usually themed as the last one I received was the Something Blue VoxBox, you review the Screen Shot 2013-09-06 at 1.23.07 PMproducts and share your thoughts via your social channels. There are even opportunities to compete to win giveaways of the products you enjoy the most. Best part of all? Super fun and super free you just have to qualify! Check it out or comment with your email and I’ll send you an invite!

Curious about that top-secret goal of mine?

While I can’t yet reveal my top-secret dream goal, I can say I have been working hard on it these past two weeks, and the work has only made me want this goal even more. Right now I’m working hard to remain patient and confident as I wait to see the next steps ahead for me. I really think achieving this goal would go a long way in helping me achieve my journey to healthy, happy and balanced. I’ll keep you posted!

Last but not least transitioning to the Fit Farm Wife

You may have noticed changes over on my Facebook page and the header here on my blog. I have decided to transition from my original blog name, The Unexpected Farm Wife, to the Fit Farm Wife. Why the change?

  • I’m discovering that fitness is one of my main topics and Fit Farm Wife illustrates that from the get go
  • In reserving my social channels, I realized that “The Unexpected Farm Wife” was really too long if I wanted to keep my branding consist across social media

What does the change mean for my readers? Not much, except there is now one name to remember FitFarmWife. You will find me on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest all at FitFarmWife. Also, I am in the process of moving my blog to my new domain and hope to have the switch complete by the end of the month.
