Sock Monkey Hat

I have been really wanting to make a sock monkey lately, but can't get out of hat mode! So I decided to make a sock monkey hat for my etsy shop.
I'm hoping to make some more with the monkey color being different, I have so many ideas running through my head it's insane!
Here is a picture of my reluctant son modeling the hat. I told him I wouldn't feed him unless he did it, Just kidding!




I am going to make some changes with the color of the tassels!
So go check out my Cozi at home etsy shop! I have a listing for customized sock monkey hats as well as one in the traditional colors!

The Beachbody Challenge

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve received emails which say something like, “I really wish we could afford for me to get healthy and fit but…”

You know what? If you start with that attitude, you’ll likely never succeed at having a healthier life.

Sure, you might not be able to afford some of the fitness programs as someone else–but the truth is: There are several different programs in different price ranges, and you can afford to get healthy, you just need to make some changes in what you spend money on, and most of these changes will be a boost to your new, healthy lifestyle.

But it will never happen until you stop making excuses and commit to change.

So I'm challenging you to set aside the negativity and commit to wholehearted willingness to change your mindset, your shopping habits, and quite possibly even your life. Look at your budget, keep a log of what you spend, and I guarantee you that you will find the money to order the products and get fit and healthy in no time.

With me, I looked at what I was spending, I cut out the really expensive starbucks, and went with the americano every once in awhile. We are also saving on doctor visits, supplements, and produce. We get everything we need in Shakeology to keep us out of the doctors office, it has all the supplements we were buying, and all of the fruits and veggies we need for the day. Sure I still buy fruits and veggies, but I don't get the ones I think we should be eating that go bad in the fridge, I get the ones that we like to eat that are seasonal and on sale, and leave it at that. I also got rid of my $46 per month gym membership and bought a beachbody program, this program was paid with 2 1/2 months of gym membership, and I will have it FOREVER! Not to mention saving on gas to and from the gym, and all the regret when I don't want to go in the freezing cold. Now I get to workout at home, whenever I find the time during the day, and there is always 30 minutes somewhere :) And I have friends and workout buddies on my team beachbody page to support me along the way and even work out with me! We also chat after our workouts and share or progress.

Your body is likely never going to change until you are also willing to.

So join the beachbody challenge! You could even win money, and you will have a fitness program forever, and a healthy meal everyday that tastes like your cheating ;)
