Repost: Introducing CheerTime101’s 60 Day Feel Good Challenge!

CheerTime101's 60 Day Feel Good ChallengeI’ve recently discovered that I’ve slacked off a bit during the summer, and now I’m paying for it. If you haven’t noticed, I’m trying to step up my game by becoming a serious lifestyle blogger through my site, SashaAgent.com.  So far, so good–however, I was noticing that I could use a little help in the tummy department. The problem was that I didn’t have the time or babysitting resources to get out and exercise, and on top of that, I ate pretty much whatever I wanted. Instead of restricting my diet, I decided to make some changes from the inside out. Since I couldn’t exercise regularly, I focused on an internal change that would hopefully boost my energy, and give me a flatter stomach along the way.

So far, I’ve had great results, and it’s only been 10 days!

With that, here is my week 1 recipe from CheerTime101’s Feel Good Challenge! If you’re interested in more of my challenges, visit CheerTime101’s Fitness page!

My Fall Crush…

sashaagent.com Fall CrushEvery hard working woman deserves to have a wish list. I’m currently crushing on this chic, yet edgy fall #ootd. It’s perfect for the girl who dares to be edgy, but still wants to remain classic.

Now, there is just no way that I could afford some of these items. The glasses and hat will for sure have to be copy cats–they’re super expensive! I’m a teacher, but even if I was rollin’ in cash, I still don’t think I could ever convince myself to pay that much for accessories. Plus, I’m pretty sure my two year old would find a way to break the glasses and rip the pom pom off the beanie. As for the rest of the items… Maybe next payday. Sigh…

Definition of The Perfect Tee

The Perfect Tee: The perfect tee should be soft, adaptable, diverse, available in multiple colors, easy to care for, and most of all–affordable. 

I’ve been on a mission to find the most perfect tee shirt for what seems like forever now. They’ve been either too frumpy, too cheap, too expensive, or limited in variety.

Over the summer, I noticed a new rack in the front of my local Forever 21. For the longest time, they’ve had their 3 dollar v neck tees, but recently they’ve added a similar scoop neck for a couple of dollars more. I was skeptical, but since they were so affordable, I grabbed a few colors. After trying them on, I immediately imagined everything I could pair with these shirts. Not only did I go back to the rack to get every color that existed, but I also drove to another Forever 21 to get a color that wasn’t available in my size. Ha!

If you haven’t found a staple tee; you’ll want to invest in getting these in multiple colors. Well done Forever 21!

Surprise & Success!

Finally, my mom’s big day arrived! On my very first blog post I announced that I would be hosting a chic, outdoor surprise birthday dinner for my mom. The original plan was to have a simple dinner, however, that soon evolved into a Pinterest backyard extravaganza! After weeks of planning, writing ‘hand written’ personalized invitations, coordinating with her BFFs, and purchasing /DIYing the perfect decor–the day had finally arrived!

My husband and I cleaned and prepared the lighting one week prior to the party since we knew we started back at school the following week. We hung items from the tree and created my floor table made from plywood and cinder blocks.

After a long first week at school, I took my eager 9 year old daughter and tantruming toddler to what seemed like every local grocery store in Dallas to find the best floral arrangements to set off my apple green and white chic decor.

The hubs and I then cleaned and moved all three dining tables to the backyard until 1:30am, woke up at 5:30am to re-hang the lights and finish decorating. Finally, after another 8 hours of preparing food and adding the finishing touches, it was showtime.

Her guests arrived promptly around 6:30pm dressed up in white, just as I requested. I told my mom we were having a small group church meeting that I wanted her to attend so we could take family pictures in white. The best part was that she had been complaining for weeks about having to wear white, how she had to work, and how tired she’d be. Finally, she arrived fashionably late, as always, and was truly blown away as her guests screamed out, “Surprise!” My mom has lived in Texas for just a little over two years now, and she has already formed such a wonderful group of friends that truly adore her.

I must say that the long hours of set up and clean up was well worth it, however, it will be a LONG time before I ever do something like this again!
