wiww - and my strange dream.

I had a dream one night this week.. the manager from my gym was calling me to take away my gym card.
He explained to me that my gym membership had been revoked due to 'lack of use'.
And in my dream, I was pee'od because he had called me out and I didn't like it.
 I'm sure I said some imaginary curse
word or two.. and then I woke up.

 I think God was trying to send me a message.
{I hear you.. loud and clear}
Get myself to le gym or continue having these bad dreams and 
end up waking up in a grumpy mood.
And no one likes a grumpy mama.

So this week, Ive been pretty good about dropping the kids off and going
straight to the gym.
But, you know what I hate about going to the gym early in the morning?
I get home afterwards and then get busy doing other things..and then before I know it
it's 3 o'clock and it's time to pick up the kids from school.
No shower and still in my gym clothes.
And then it happens the next day again.
And the next.
Of course, I don't like  to stay in my gym clothes but somehow it just happens.
And then what do ya' know? Sooner or later I lose the motivation to actually
get dressed. Because my workout clothes become my new attire.

And I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that
But for me, it makes a big difference in my day.
I feel better about myself and can function better as a wife, mommy and housekeeper.
And if I can't get a shower in {just sayin', it happens} I'll try to change into
something different. I didn't realize I was getting back into my old habit until I downloaded my
outfit pictures this evening.

Dress/Cardigan: Target, Shoes: H&M, homemade ribbon belt 

Shirt: Forever 21 {again}, Cropped Jeans: Gap, Belt: Forever 21, Necklace: local antique shop, Shoes: Cathy Jean {old}
{These must be the worst pictures ever.. photographers nightmare: bad lighting, shadows, blur}

So next week, is a new week. I'm aware of it now..
and now that I've got this WIWW group I'm even more motivated. 
{you girls rock!}

Totally random:
only a wiww participant would understand how chaotic it is to take outfit
pictures with little ones around.
For your viewing pleasure, the out-takes...

Have a wonderful week :)

Linking up to What I Wore Wednesday at the Pleated Poppy.
