Best Winter Workout Finds

I have really found my groove with working out over the last year. I thoroughly enjoy it and crave it for the positive way I feel after a workout. I definitely see what people were always saying about the endorphins released after you workout. In the beginning, I did it to help lose weight, but now I do it for many other reasons.  I have found some products that I think are amazing and I would like to share those with you.  You may have set some goals for yourself this year and I hope you stick with it and reach those goals.

Trigger Point Performance Grid Foam Roller – I have been using a foam roller for 15 years before it was a cool workout piece of equipment.   I was in a car accident and had a therapeutic one for my neck and back for physical therapy exercises.  Mine is not pretty and it’s a lot bigger, but you get the gist. These are great for exactly what they say.  Rolling trigger points after a workout will help keep soreness down to a minimum. I have also found they help you from getting muscle spasms and long term soreness.Trigger Point Performance Grid Foam Roller by Prosource- www.yourstrulyjenn.comBose Sound Sport Wellness Headphones- I have used the beats wireless headphones for about 2 years, but for some reason the ear piece always hurt my ears.  I have not had any problem with these headphones and the sound quality is amazing.  Who could go wrong with a Bose product?

Bose Sound Sport Wellness Headphones-

Hydro Flask– These are a little pricey but you wouldn’t believe how many different water bottles we have at our house that just don’t do the trick so the price justifies itself. This one keeps the same ice when you return 10 hours later. The Hydro Flask doesn’t produce any condensation on the side of the bottle. I can’t speak highly enough about this product.  I have the solid teal one.  My son gave it to me for Christmas.

Hydro Flask-

Athleta Excursion Tights–  I absolutely love the Athleta tights.  I am 5’7″ so I ordered the tall which I love.  After I wear leggings twice they usually are too short which is so annoying.  These are still the perfect length after 3 months.  They also have a pocket on the side that is deep enough for your phone to be completely covered.  Great for working out and then throwing a sweater over to make a Target run. They are the perfect fit, right amount of thickness, oh and did I mention they make your butt look really good.  What else could you ask for?  Check them out in this picture.

Calia Sweater–  My son gave me this women’s effortless metallic hooded sweater made by Carrie Underwood’s line Calia for Christmas. I think I’ve already worn it like 4 times in 2 weeks. I get really hot when I shop and run errands so this sweater is perfect for me.  it is casual but super cute and trendy so it is perfect and can be used for multiple purposes.  The sweater is pictured above.

If you are looking for some new things to add to your workout stash checkout these products. I think you might find some of them to be beneficial to help you in your fitness journey.  I would love to hear about products you are loving.  Leave a comment below if there is something you’re using that I need to try.

Tips to Ward off The Winter Blues

 As winter rolls on and the weather is less than desirable, I tend to feel a little blah.  The days are short and the nights are long and I yearn for a hint of some warmer weather.  I like to have some things that I can look forward to, so here are some things I do to help ward off the winter blues.

Reward Yourself

I like to make a list of a couple goals and then give myself a reward when I accomplish the goals.  I usually like to purchase an outfit or something special like that so I can also enjoy the day out shopping which makes me even more happy.

How to ward off the winter blues-

Plan A Weekend Away

Plan a little weekend get away with your spouse or some girlfriends. That gives you something to look forward to.  Spend a couple weeks on Pinterest researching places to visit, where to eat, and best places to stay.  If you can’t afford to do that or you can’t take time off from work, plan a staycation that’s packed with tons of fun adventures in your own area.  There is a ton of stuff I hate to admit that I haven’t done in my own area.

Tips to ward off the winter blues-

Spring Ready Body

So many people have some type of fitness goal as part of their new year’s resolutions.  How about pushing yourself to meet your goal and then purchasing a brand new bathing suit to get ready for your first beach day of the season.

Pamper Yourself

There are lots of things you can do at your own home to pamper yourself.  I love to buy fresh flowers. You can find some great prices and beautiful blooms at Trader Joe’s or local grocery stores. Lighting a candle, taking a bath, meditation, putting on some music, and taking some quiet time to read a book are all things you can do at your own home to bring joy and peace to a chaotic day.

Pamper yourself to ward off the winter blues.

These are all simple things you can do to ward off the winter blues and have a great start to 2018.

5 Easy Ways to Deal with Stress

Love Yourself Series

No one wants to be stressed or have anxiety, but life isn’t perfect and it hands us overwhelming situations.  I found, if I do things in preparation I feel a lot less stressed about my day.  I can’t control everything, but at least I can help myself feel as prepared as I can for the day and weeks ahead. Here are 5 easy ways to deal with stress.  I hope they help you as much as they have helped me.

Prepare for the next day the night before

There are several things you can prepare the night before so you’re not so rushed in the morning.  Some people like to sleep in late and leave no extra time for things that may arise. They leave no time for traffic issues, dog problems, and kids not listening.  That is not how “real” mornings play out so preparing things the night before leaves time for when these stressful situations happen in the morning.  You can set out the main parts of your lunch.  You might not want to make the sandwich, but you can set out a banana and crackers.  You can press your outfit and pick out your shoes.  This will save a lot of time in the morning.  You can go ahead and place your breakfast out so in the morning you are just quickly making it. You can also pack up your work bag.  This also means finding your keys and being ready to just walk out the door.

Set out your clothes the night before to have a smooth morning.

keep your planner up to date

Writing down your schedule and important dates will help you see everything in a glance. Seeing the big picture will help you stay organized and allow your brain to relax a bit. Then you’re not always having to constantly remember all the tidbits of your life. That’s draining!  I also like to keep a pad of paper by my bed so if I think of something important I can jot it down and then add it to my planner in the morning.  This can really help if you’re having sleep issues.  I always feel if I write it down then my brain can relax.

Write down your schedule in a planner so you can see the big picture.

Manage your time wisely

I like using block scheduling in my day.  I like to set up my day in chunks so I can fit everything in.  I try to stick to those times unless something is really pressing.  It really allows you to try to get to all the things on your list. Setting a timer is also so helpful. For some reason, that timer really keeps me cruising along.  I don’t know what authority it has on me, but I really push myself to stay on track if the timer is set. Know your priorities and get the most important things done first.  This is very important with time management.  If you know something doesn’t have to be done until next month do the thing that has to be done tomorrow first.

Spend time with family

Spending quality time with your family has shown to relieve stress.  When you’re around people who love you, you tend to relax and just be yourself. Isn’t that a novel idea that we can be the people we want to be around the people that love us.  Ask yourself, “are you spending the amount of time you want with your family or are you working too much?” This could be one of the causes of your stress.  Evaluate this in your life and see if there is anything in your schedule that you can shift to help you spend more time with your family.

Spend as much quality time with your family as you can.

Stay Positive

We are all a work in progress.  Taking baby steps is still progress.  Any time you are moving forward is progress no matter how small.  Nobody is perfect and you shouldn’t strive to be.  That in itself will bring you more stress than you know.  Let go of the past and try to move forward with some new priorities set in place to bring about positivity in your life.

Today was the last day of the series.  I hope you have been following along and taking good care of yourself.  If you missed any of the posts you can check them out here, here and here. Have a great weekend.

How to Get Out of A Funk – Love Yourself Series

 Maybe you’ve been doing some organizing in January and you’re starting February with a clean slate.  What an awesome feeling, right? However, due to the weather you may also have the winter blues.  We were immediately hit with 13 inches of snow and stuck in the house for several days.  How can you cope when life hands you a little too much and you’re just in a funk?

Tips on how to get out of funk

Don’t Choose to Do Nothing

There are things you can do to help yourself get out of a funk.  You can brighten your home with some spring like items such as bright colored pillows, fresh flowers, and other accessories. Fresh flowers really brighten my day. Trader Joe’s has gorgeous flowers for great prices.

Don’t Procrastinate

If you have some projects hanging over your head go ahead and tackle them.  Set a plan ahead off time so you have a schedule worked out of how long it will take you and stick to it as closely as you can.  This will give you as sense of accomplishment when you complete each stage of the project. Set small goals at first until you have completed several of those.

Don’t Slack on Sleep

Coming from a true insomniac you don’t want to skimp on sleep.  Everyone thinks I’m so organized. I am a type A personality, but mostly it’s because I don’t sleep much (not by choice). I get a lot done in the wee hours of the night when all is quiet in my home.  Sleep is so important to good health.  Did you know lack of sleep can actually make you gain weight?  Yikes, now that’s a reason to catch some ZZZZZs.

Tips on how to get out of a funk.

Do Ask For Help

I’m not great at delegating.  It is important for your sanity to give some tasks to other family members when things get too overwhelming.  Plus your kids need to have responsibilities at your home anyway.  They need to be able to go out into the world and be productive citizens and that is learned at home.

Do Have a Self-Care Plan

Are you taking care of yourself? Are you eating right, exercising, and doing some pampering activities?  Even small things like lighting a candle makes me immediately happier.  You can take 15-30 minutes to have a little down time to read a chapter in your book or take a bubble bath with a glass of wine. It doesn’t take long for these kinds of activities, but the benefits are amazing.

Do Vent

Find people to talk to.  It might be family, friends, or even a professional.  Whatever is too overwhelming may just need to be worked through with someone else.  Sometimes even writing in a journal helps with the venting process.

I hope some of these tips will help you start off your new year by loving yourself and shaking off those winter blues.

10 Ways to Get Out of a Bad Mood

Taking Care of Yourself Series

Welcome back to the taking care of yourself series.  If you missed the first post, I hope you get a chance to check it out. I’m kind of excited about today’s post. It doesn’t happen often, but when I’m in a bad mood it seems like the whole tone of the house changes.  The old saying, “If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy,” seems to be true.  Here are ten things that help me get out of a bad mood.  Sometimes it just has to pass, but hopefully this list will give you some tips that will help.

Ten Tips to get out of a bad mood -

Ten Tips To Get Out of a Bad Mood

  1. Keep busy–  Sulking isn’t going to help your mood.  Get up and find something to do.  If not, you will sit around and stew about what is bothering you.
  2. Listen to music–  Music to me is a game changer.  It really pulls emotion out of me depending on what I’m listening to.  Throw on some upbeat music and get something done.
  3. Be productive– That leads us to productivity.  Getting stuff marked off my list always makes me feel happy.  I’m a list person and I love getting things accomplished during the day.  If you’re in a bad mood, get going on your “to do” list.
  4. Distract yourself- I’m sure you used this technique with your kids when they were little. Bring it back around for yourself. Make a phone call to someone you haven’t spoken to in a while.  I’m sure it will distract you and also brighten their day as well.
  5. Get a make over–  Getting a new haircut or color helps me feel so much better about myself. That alone could get me out of a bad mood for sure.  Even a nice blowout would have my hair looking nice and make me feel great for several days.  How can you be in a bad mood when you look so good?
  6. Find something to look forward to– Don’t you like to have something to count down or think about in the near future?  Maybe it’s an upcoming long weekend, a shopping trip, or a goal you’re working on.  Having something to look forward to really gets my mind thinking of positive things.
  7. Guilty pleasures–  What are your guilty pleasures?  Do something that you love.  Take a bubble bath, go on Pinterest, watch a movie, read a book, or get a massage.  There are so many fun things you can do to make yourself happy.  Make a list of your “go to” guilty pleasures so you can easily access them the next time you’re in a bad mood.
  8. Get physical–  You knew this one would be on the list.  Take a walk, go for a swim, jump on the trampoline,  It doesn’t need to be much, but find something to do that you enjoy.  Getting those endorphins going will really make you feel better.
  9. Journal–  Write it down.  Get your feelings out in a short brain dump and you will be surprised how much better you will feel.
  10. Get some fresh air–  Go on a walk or sit on your porch and get some Vitamin D.  It is amazing how many people really have the winter blues.  I really do believe people are happier when it is warmer.  Try to get outside.  If you have a desk job, take your lunch break and try to get outside if you can.  If not, try to set yourself up by a window where you can get some sun coming in while you work.

I hope these 10 tips will help you when you’re in a bad mood.

Try them the next time you’re feeling a little off and see which ones help.  Have a great week.

It’s a great day to have a great day!

Taking Care Of Yourself Series

Over the next couple of weeks I’m going to be sharing a series on the topic of caring for yourself.  I think January is a great time to start that because everyone is focused on being at their “best” and February is Valentine’s Day which promotes love.  There will be four posts written about taking care of yourself and one will. be shared each week.  I hope you will find these helpful and share them with your friends and family so they can also benefit.

Taking care of yourself series -

Taking Care of Yourself

  1.  Plan out your morning routine-  I did a whole post on morning routines and how you can benefit from having one. Hopefully you can click on that and check that out as well.  I have to tell you I’m not really a morning person because I stay up so late or I go to bed super early and I’m up in the wee hours of the morning.  Either way, having a morning routine has made my mornings a lot easier because I know exactly what I’m supposed to be doing and it’s easier than just fumbling around like I used to do.  I love lists and routines.
  2. Set weekly and monthly goals- This can be in your personal, professional, spiritual life etc… This is whatever you make it.  I’m a super visual person so writing down goals and seeing them written down really helps me to accomplish what to get done.  Also I think it makes it more of fan urgent matter when it’s written down and staring at you from your desk, phone, or bulletin board.  This will also help you with those yearly and 5 year plans.  You know those stupid where do you want to be in 5 year questions.
  3. Get rid of physical and mental clutter- for more organizational tips you can read some great posts here and here.  I recently wrote a mental clutter post on Essentialism that I would love for you to check out. Christine Scalise said,  “Clutter is the physical manifestation off unmade decisions fueled by procrastination,” I think that is totally brilliant.  You can’t feel free to be your best self if you are surrounded by clutter.
  4. Don’t compare yourself to others- Comparison is the biggest way to lose your joy.  I’ve always loved this quote, “you can’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle”.  I apologize that I don’t know who originally said it because I have heard it so many times now in the blogging world, but it is so true.  I see all these beautiful blogs and Instagram accounts and it’s so easy to get caught up in comparing yourself. However, you need to remember no one else has taken your journey and has your prospective on the world.
  5. Be Full of Gratitude- Everyone has their problems and things they are working on , but there is good in every day.  Go to bed thinking of the things you are grateful for and be thankful.  I like to say 3-5 things I’m grateful for before I go to bed.  It just helps me end the day on a positive note.  You can always say your family and your dog.  Those are two things I’m so grateful for.

I hope you think about these things as you head into February.  Are you taking care of yourself? Remember the speech they give you on the plane rides? If you should lose cabin pressure, put your mask on first and then help others.  If you don’t take care of yourself there is no way you can keep going to help the others in your life. Have a great week!

Pantone Color of the Year 2018

Ultra Violet Pantone’s 2018 color of the Year

Pantone’s color of the year for 2018 is Ultra Violet. Do you know for about 30 years my favorite color was purple. My wedding was purple.  It was always easy when you played those games where you had to guess your teammate’s favorite color.  Mine never changed until about 3 years ago.  Now it is black, pitch black, dark black, light black, pastel black, midnight black etc….

ultra violet Pantone color of the year


Fashion, florals, and interiors, are all linked to the color of the year.  The inspiration of all of these designers are intertwined together and used in collaboration with a lot more than we even know.  I can get inspiration from the craziest things.  Like I said at Christmas, my theme came from a scarf and a friend of mine used a rug design for her theme.

Pantone Ultra Violet 2018


This color actually has a blue base and compliments the already trendy grays used in many homes.  Many florists are fans of purple as it is a common and favorite spring/summer color for landscapes and floral arrangements.  I wonder if we will see this color back as a popular wedding color.

Wedding colors ultra violet Pantone color of the year 2018


2016’s Pantone colors of the year were Rose Quartz and Serenity, a shade of baby blue. This pink hue really took off and led the way.  The whole industry became pink obsessed and honestly still is.  To this day, pink is considered a neutral that goes with many other shades.  It is used frequently among fashionistas and interior designers bag of tricks to bring a feminine touch to an outfit or room.  If ultra violet is not your color then pink and soft blushes are still pretty popular so you could always choose that shade.  whatever your preference, use it with confidence to reflect your personality and you can’t go wrong.

What shades are you guys using in your homes this year?  Do you have any huge projects planned for 2018?  I have some things up my sleeve that I hope to get done this year, but you know how that goes. I’m having so much fun on my Instagram with some new editing techniques.  I would love for you to follow me over there. Check it out here.

What is Essentialism?

What is Essentialism and How Can It Help You In The New Year?

This is the time of year when we have received lots of new things and are also putting away our Christmas decorations. Lots of things need a home in your house.  I think it’s a great time to also clean out some of the older things that you may not be using in your closets, garage, or attics. You don’t have to be a minimalist, but learning how essentialism can help you organize your life may help you in the new year.

How essentialism can help you in the new year.

Greg McKeown wrote Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less and was interviewed on the topic to cover the basics from the book.  The concept of essentialism is to take away the mentality that you can have it all and you have to do everything and replace it with:

The right thing

In the right way

At the right time

To live your best life

 Essentialist say no a lot more.  It is that time of year when most of us are coming up with resolutions, bucket lists or ways to improve our lives in some way. Investing in the right activities is so important.  Our plates are so full with activities.  Many are trivial leaving only a few that are vital. “Learning to filter through all those options and selecting only those that are truly essential,” Says Greg McKeown. Have you ever looked at a menu in a new restaurant and there are 4 pages of entrees and you are so overwhelmed because there are too many choices? This is the same concept.  Pare down the activities that you include in your weekly schedule so you can focus on the essential acitvities.  We are of the mentality that the busier we are the more successful we are.

So how do you choose what to say yes to?  Have you ever tried to do multiple things at the same time and it didn’t go so well? Juggling 5 balls at the same time only leaves you frustrated that you’re not giving anyone 100%.  Either your family suffers because you’re trying to work while spending time with your family or work stuff isn’t complete because you’re at the beach trying to finish a presentation while trying to spend time with the family.

Essentialism is not getting rid of everything like minimalism, but choosing what is most essential to you.  Reading Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, was helpful to understanding this concept as well.  I read that last year and cleaned out so much stuff. That allowed me to reorganize my Chrismtas décor in a brand new attic configuration.  This is a way to clear out your physical and mental clutter.  It can also help you balance your work and home life which for some people is very difficult.

Essentialism can help you clean out your mental and physical clutter.

Ask yourself so you’re not regretting your decisions, Does your schedule each week, month, year represent what you’re wanting to uphold?  (spending time with your family) Actually break your schedule up and write it out. Build a weekly routine that matches your ideal week that balances your work and family time. Seeing it in writing will help you see how much time you actually spend on stuff that is not essential to your goals.  It may be eye opening to see how much time you spend at work and how much time you actually spend with your family.

If you want to make a slight shift in the new year work through your schedule and put it in writing. You don’t have to make drastic changes.  Small steps in the right direction is still progress. Making changes that are too big too soon may leave you feeling burned out and falling back into your old ways and not making any changes.

How to Deal with December Without Going Crazy

How to Deal with December Without Going Crazy

If you‘re like me you may be a little overwhelmed when mid-November rolls around and you haven’t started thinking about Christmas yet.  The fun countdowns don’t seem so fun anymore.  They seem like they are judging you on the progress you have made so far on the to do list that is a mile long.  Did you make the party menu, shop for your niece and nephew, wrap the gifts for your mother-in-law’s party this weekend?  These tips are designed to get you through the holidays judgement and stress-free.  Let’s do this.

Get organized and decorate early so you’re not overwhelmed

There are so many things moms have to take care of during the holiday season.  I like to start early enough to give myself breathing room. Think about your Christmas cards early.  If you know you are going to need to set up a family photo shoot in early October, then make sure you have set this up in the summer.  Then get your outfit ideas out of the way so it doesn’t sneak up on you.  Check out my Pinterest board for great ideas for photo shoot clothing ideas.  Also, here is an amazing post by a local photographer who did a family photo shoot for my entire family on my grandmother’s 80th birthday.  She gives some great tips on planning for Christmas cards.  I also like to give the house a little spring cleaning in the fall.  When I take down my regular decorations to put up my Christmas decor, I do not want to put it in a filthy mess.  I want clutter free areas that are dust free.  Go through your house and look for areas that can use a little attention before pulling out more stuff.

Get your Christmas cards done early for a stress free December.

Schedule Traditions early on the calendar

Write down all events that you have to attend.  These are your non-negotiables.  If you know every year you do 3 family parties, a special dinner, and Christmas Eve service at church then make sure those get on the calendar in October.  Then as plans come up you may have to say no to some events that just don’t work out or may interfere with the “must do” on your calendar.

Stay on your eating and workout program

Everyone wants to look their best in family photos around the holidays.  But even more importantly, I want to feel my best and have energy to do all the things I need to do around the busiest time of the year.  I want to be healthy, and be at my best for my family.  The best way to do that is try to go to bed and wake up at the same time you normally do.  Sleep habits are so important. I also have noticed when I go on vacation and change my eating habits that I feel horrible.  You are going to indulge a little, but don’t eat from Halloween to New Year’s as if you’re on vacation.  Your body will thank you in January.

Shop early and wrap as you go

I try every year to get my shopping done by the end of November so I can really enjoy December.  I don’t think I’ve every officially made it.  But I try really hard.  Shopping and wrapping takes a lot of physical and mental energy. I love getting people thoughtful and meaningful gifts.  I think it is great to ask the person directly what they want.  If they give me a list I can get them something they really want.  One year I asked my mom to paint my office for Christmas.  It may not have been conventional, but she’s an amazing painter and she was thrilled to do something for me that I really wanted. If you can’t get out to the stores you can still do your shopping from home by shopping online.

Shop early and wrap gifts as you

Know Your Theme Early

You may think I’m crazy, but I already know the theme for Christmas 2018 and have some ideas for how I will decorate. The reason I do this is for the amazing after Christmas sales and because I shop year- round for good deals.  Here are some items I have bought during the year that become available for better prices at other times.  Keep your eyes open for wrapping paper, lanterns, candles, crystal, dinnerware, placemats, and ribbon.  Plus you may have a certain budget at Christmas since you’re also purchasing Christmas gifts for your family or entertaining.  Spreading it out during the year makes it a little more cost effective.

I hope this was helpful. I want you to enjoy the holidays with friends and family and make December 2017 your best holiday season yet.

Yours Truly,


Frequently Asked Questions

I have been blogging now for over two years and I get asked some questions over and over.  I thought it would be fun to answer some of your FAQ  in one place.  I didn’t know a lot about blogging when I first started.  You have to admit it’s not a job that a lot of people really understand so I can relate to people being curious about it.

  1.  How do you keep your white furniture nice with pets and kids?  Honestly, when my kids were younger I had darker leather furniture that cleaned up very easily.  We don’t eat in the room with white furniture.  My kids are old enough now that they know how to take care of the furniture which is nice.  However, there are so many options these days with slipcovers you can wash and wonderful fabrics.  I think you just have to do your research and be knowledgeable about what you’re buying and for what purpose.
  2. What camera do you use?  I use the Canon Rebel T5I.  The very first DSLR I had was a Nikon D60.  My son used to play travel baseball and my daughter used to cheer and I took hundreds and hundreds of pictures each weekend of their sports.  That camera was very good with the long range lens.  I really love my canon for my indoor blogging shots.  I have several different lenses that I use according to what project I’m shooting.
  3. You were a reading specialist. How did you become an interior design blogger? This is the biggest question I get.  I guess because the two seem so different.  But they are both very creative jobs.  I loved teaching and I was quite good at it.  I had a Master’s Degree in Reading and taught the lowest performing first grade readers in a program called Reading Recovery.  I loved my job.  Once my second child was born I only worked one year and that was it for me.  I knew I wanted to stay home with my children.  But that first year was a hard transition for me at home.  The stay at home mom role didn’t just happen easily for me.  There was an adjustment period, but I never looked back.  When my kids were both in school I enjoyed volunteering at their schools.  Then when my son was 10 and daughter was 13, I even tutored SOL students for about 3 years.  However, I just didn’t feel this was right for me. Something was missing. I started doing little projects around the house and practicing my photography and finally I merged the two together and decided to start Yours Truly Jenn. I loved it.  It was the creative piece that I didn’t even know was missing.
  4. Where did you get your animal print chairs from in your living room?  This room took me 8 months to pull together and the chairs and coffee table were the hardest pieces to find. The chairs came from Horchow. You can find similar ones here.  I love them so much.  Between the animal print and the leather they really bring a  masculine element to the room.  If you missed my fall room tour you can check it out here.
  5. Do you like working from home? People that know me really well know I can’t stand traffic or driving.  I hate driving at night too.  Skipping a commute is amazing.  Whenever I’m out during rush hour I’m really thankful for my husband and how much he provides for our family because he is constantly on the road.  I have an office that I adore so I get a lot done there.  What could be better?

If you’re still curious about me and my blogging experiences you can check out these posts.  They may help you find what you’re looking for.
