How To Feel Like You ARE Good Enough #Life

Well HELLO THERE! I know that you were expecting a beautiful blog post from your beloved Teri from Snarkfest Blog but she allowed me to come over here to play today! Don’t worry she’ll be back right after I’m done! I didn’t hold her hostage or anything! =) I just hope I don’t bore you too much! So I’ve been going through a lot these past few months and I’ve been kinda neglecting my own blog but I thought that maybe this guest post could cheer me up and of course some Teri love! Thank you so much Teri for letting me come by and chat with your followers for a bit! I am so honored you let me come through! I hope I make you proud! 

Feeling Like You’re Never Good Enough

It’s just one of those things that I think we all go through. Whether it’s in the work place or at home. I feel that we all struggle with this from time to time. We try and put on this fake facade of how strong we are or how we have a handle on things and we don’t need any help but what we truly don’t realize is that EVERYONE goes through it. So how do I go through my tough times? How to feel like you ARE good enough?! I’m no expert but I am an expert at feeling like a failure!

  1. Do what you do best! What is it that ONE thing that you feel that you excel at? Or better yet if you can’t even think of one ask a loved one and they’ll help you. After you figure it out do MORE of it so that you can feel better about what you’ve accomplished for that day!
  2. Take it one day at a time! Don’t think too far ahead. Just focus on how to make that ONE day better!
  3. Don’t try to do TOO many things at once. You’ll get side tracked and forget what you were trying to accomplish which is to make yourself feel better!
  4. Ask a loved one! They’d be more than willing to give you some love and encouragement!

I love to write about things from life, and relationships to food and maybe sometime as technical as photography. I can’t promise that I’ll make you laugh or cry but I’d love to go through life with yah! If you liked my post, please come visit me over at www.chewylicious.com or on twitter @chewyleecious. Hope to see you around!

Oh where has my motivation gone? via @snarkfestblog #GuestPost

I am truly lucky to be a part of an amazing and wonderful group of women bloggers! I am so thankful for them and I wouldn’t be where I am today without them. Things they have done large and small. Things that they might not have even known that they’ve done…just by being there. What’s funny is that I sent out a request to them pleading them for a guest post because my blog has been very neglected since the beginning of the holidays. I didn’t think it would but alas I think all the merriment and eating has caused me to become brain dead. Teri responded immediately and asked what I would like the topic to be. I told Teri to write about whatever she wanted and when I received her post it was exactly what I was going through. I think it was meant to be! So here it goes! Please put your hands together and give her some love and make sure when you’re done reading her post and want to get to know her better visit her at SnarkFest Blog.

I’ve been extremely lazy as of late, and have really let my blog go. I made a very ridiculous Merry Christmas post which basically said ‘Merry Christmas’. It’s all I could come up with, so sue me. So when Courtney asked for a guest blog post, I decided that I need to jump back into the blogging arena and I took the bait. I posted a new blog on my Snarkfest page. Then I typed up a blog post for The Epistolarians. Now that my feet are duly wet, I’m jumping in full blast and top down to Chewylicious. Courtney’s been in a bit of a slump just like me, so she knows my pain. 
 
Why have I been so slow to blog? What’s caused my slump? In a word: Holiday. I’ve shopped, I’ve wrapped, I’ve decorated, I’ve cleaned, I’ve baked and for the love of God I’ve eaten. Then there’s the TV. I’ve seen more episodes of The Big Bang Theory, which I’m definitely loving, but I should be blogging. I should be sharing my snark with the world. The world waits on my every snarky word, doesn’t it? Okay probably not, but my mom, my best friend and everyone I’ve paid to follow my blog expects me to post something. Anything. Not just a Peanuts cartoon saying Merry Christmas. Being in a slump sucks. And it’s pretty hard to dig my way out of it. Like losing weight. It’s all about motivation. I need to be properly motivated to get off my ass and start back on the right track (alright, blogging actually requires me to sit ON my ass, but you know what I mean). 
 
Weight loss requires the same motivation. 2 years ago I lost over 60 lbs. I was motivated. I ran. I ran like the wind. I hated running, yet it was working for me so, like Forest Gump, if I was going anywhere, I was running! Between running and watching every calorie that went into my body, 60 lbs. left my body. It was wonderful. It was fantastic. I was in a size 8. And now? Not so much. This past year I didn’t run as often as I should have, I wasn’t careful with what went into my pie hole, and 40 lbs. came back. 
 
So here is my vow. I am getting back on track in the new year. I’m going back to blogging more regularly. I’m going back to MyFitnessPal.com to log and track my caloric intake andI’m running again. Running at least 5 days a week. And even if I don’t, I’m doing a guest blog post. No one here knows me. I can fall back to my old lazy habits and no one will know the difference. Unless you folks can try and keep me honest. Can I count on you??

3 Easy Steps to DIY Pants Tutorial for Boots by @kidinducedcrazy

Pants Tutorial for Boots!

We have an amazing guest post today from Ashley from Sorry Kid, Your Mom Doesn’t Play Well With Others!  She is an amazing and talented writer! I love reading her blog, she is hilarious, a great wife and mother! Make sure to stop by and give her some love.

This is for the outdated wardrobes! For the poor folk who have to shop at Goodwill. This is a way to take some ugly ass 7 year old pants and make them work for today. You know, back when tapered leg jeans were in. After the parachutes but before the skinnies. Yep, those jeans that made us women with the hips taking over the town, look 10 times bigger. Then some genius thought of jeans outside the pants… I love them, it evened out the thigh/hip area. So since my clothing budget is pretty much nil, a pair of old school jeans at Goodwill may be my only chance. Now this isn’t perfect but it works. Tapered jeans in the french roll to put in a pair of boots are painful so I fixed it for ya….

You will need scissors, leg warmers/long socks and tapered leg jeans.

1. First you cut off the hem of the jean
2.Then you can use your long socks or baby legs to hold the jeans in.
