Crunches, Curls and Oreos, OH MY!!

OH BOY, has it been a while since I have posted! Quite a lot has been going on so I will catch you up as best as I can.

Lets first talk about how things are progressing personally. I am almost through all of my dental appointments. Id say about half way. Endoscopy is in March, wisdom teeth removal consult is in April. Still struggling with the leg pain but taking it one day at a time and well...thats about that!

As you may know I have been feeling kind of beat up lately. Especially with all of the health stuff. I decided I was tired of feeling down, having a major lack of energy and motivation and overall crappy. I kept putting myself into "cookie holes." Kinda like a "K" whole but Oreos where my drug. Man I love a good Oreo! Double Stuffed of course! So 2 weeks and 2 packs of Oreos later I made a move. I picked up "Jackie Warners 30 Day Fast Start DVD." BOY does it kick my butt! Im taking it a little slow as of now and trying to focus more on the things I am putting into my body. The more crap you put in the worse you feel is SOOOOO true! I'm telling you, if you want to FEEL results fast, pick it up for less then $10 at your local Walmart. I wont go into giving a full review but feel free to google the snot out of it. Im a big fan of Jackie and her show "Work Out." this is the first full week of workouts for me so I am still at the beginning of this whole thing. I already feel like I have a bit more energy and more strength. Along side the DVD I am also using "My Fitness Pal" to keep track of my daily intake. I am trying not to obsess over it and just use it as a guide. No super human, Hulk strength yes but I notice a change when I left trays at work and my energy when I am awake. Waking up is still VERY hard. WOOT! Beach Booty Here I Come!!! Is anyone else starting a workout program?

I would also like to announce Pedro Rodriguez! He will help us bring HF designs to life! He has wicked amazing graphic design skills and has offered to help us on our journey!!! Please check out his personal line Devils Blood! It may seem like an interesting match but this man is well versed and extremely talented. He has a passion for graphic design like no one else I have encountered! I am THRILLED and OVERJOYED that he has offered to help out HIDDEN FOX!! This also means, MERCH SOON!!!! (for real this time :))

Have you checked out the HF Facebook page lately? It really is a great way to keep up with the day to day influences and up coming excitement! There have been quite a few Fox Sightings lately and a few more to come! Lets get the hype started so we can make some big moves this spring! Let me know of anything going on in your town in 2012 and I will personally look into making HF part of your year!

I'll stop here because I could keep writing forever. I'll spare you and give you a bonus post later. Hahah! Here is a little something to keep you smiling until then. This is a video shared by fellow skulk member Kathy Gibson! Thank You Kathy!!

Happy Foxintine's Day!!!

Well Happy Valentine's Day! If you are interested in a little history lesson on how this day came to be, Click LOVE.

Stand up for love, romance and all the gushy stuff. Most people rebel against this day due to being burned so many times. More then not, people feel its "cool" to rebel against this day. "flowers are stupid and a waste of money" If you read home decorating magazines, they always say fresh flowers bring great energy into a home and you should have them everyday. Isn't it easier to do when someone else buys them for you? ;) Also, I see women all the time on Facebook saying how they had a hard day and are in serious need of chocolate. Well ladies, today is the day for you! Free Chocolate!!! Then there is the card. Sure depending on the card you can end up in a roaring laugh or sobbing your girly eyes out. Bring it on! Last but not least, the possibilities of fine jewelry. Again, ITS FREE!!! What are you complaining about?! Now lets break this down on the mens side of things. I know for years I always felt it was necessary to give them something as well. Men always feel like the women have all the fun with holidays. Surprise your man with HIS favorite candy, a little risky outfit and a fun little gadget he's been wanting. For years I actually gave my sweetheart flowers as well. You wouldn't believe how much men (secretly) like getting flowers!

For the singles... I stated in a previous post, make it about you. I still believe strongly in this. You should always keep your faith in that "happy ending." Do good, think positive and good will come to you, I PROMISE! My cousin is getting together with a bunch of her friends tonight for dinner. Thats what I did last year. Remember the history. Its about standing up for love and believing in it. Your prince or princess will come. Did you read that, I said WILL come. :) Believe!!! Go out tonight and have some fun. Go get that decadent dessert you always keep yourself from. Take that extra long shower or bath. Dance in your undies like no one is watching! Chances are there is someone out there as lonely as you, waiting for the day to meet you so you can begin your love affair. Either way you are NOT alone. Even though I have a partner in crime, I will still be alone tonight and I also have to work and serve food to the happy couples. Hugs*!!!!

To all of you, have an AMAZING and LOVELY DAY!!!
Your Foxintine Miss Mimi Fox!

Message In A Bottle, Yeah!

I know I haven't written one of these in a bit. By "these" I mean a post written on a personal level. I have felt very drawn over the past couple of days to give you a bit of an update on me. I had felt at times that it would be "unprofessional" to write about such personal matters but HF is all about not being ashamed or worried about being judged. So on that note, here is my update for you...

About 2 months ago I received health insurance for the first time sine 2009ish. I was able to get back on track with treatment for my undiagnosed chronic leg pain. I was also able to get back on track with my dental health. I have hit a few bumps with both of those things but continue to move forward taming pain and improving my sleep as best as I can. Its hard to sleep when you are in pain and its hard to feel great when you are in pain and aren't getting the proper sleep. Throughout this journey I recently hit another snag with my stomach. Working with the different over the counter medications, prescriptions and vitamins, I started to have bleeding or may have been having bleeding (ulcers etc) and just didn't know. Unsure of where the bleeding was coming from or why it was happening, I was sent to the GI doctor. On top of the dentist appointments, dr appointments and oral surgeon, I now have a sweet appointment for a endoscopy.

I tell you all of this because I would like you to know whats going on with the progression of HF. I realize that the 57 people who like the facebook page will be able to say they were with me from the start. I appreciate the crap out of that! However most people wont have any idea about the journey. It has taken me a while to mold this brand and shape it into my version of perfect. It isn't your traditional brand and it follows no normal guidelines. We don't have any clothing yet but I try hard to focus on the message and the community aspects until I can bring you the clothing. Its not about the clothing entirely. Its about the message, what the clothing says and says about YOU! What it says about who we are and what we stand for! I want HF to speak about the reality of life. For example, the struggles a person may face while starting a clothing brand. :) THIS IS REAL! Real life happens and its happening to me. It may also be happening to you.

My message in all of this is really, regardless of the health issues I am facing during this process, I am continuing to work at night in spite of my lack of physical ability, I am moving forward. I schedule a dr or dds appointment, I go to it, I go to work, I come home, I sleep, I work on a new HF design, I take care of my apartment, bills, pets and various responcibilities. I want to throw the towel in some days but instead of burning myself out I hit the "slow motion" button. I just take a little longer doing everything. I really hope to have clothing for you by spring. One day at a time though. I really believe I am going through all of this for a reason. I can handle it. I know I can do this. I AM doing this! :)

Thank you to all of my friends, family, strangers, co workers and beings that have been positive support throughout my journey. Thank you for the love and kindness. Please stay with me and believe in HF. I truly believe with all my heart that this will all help HF become what I know it can. What it WILL be.

Thank YOU!

We bout it every day, every day, every day

So it has been a little while since I last posted and a lot of LIFE has happened. Just to give you a quick update, I am currently on the hunt for a new apartment and a new job. It has been quite a challenge but I am excited to see the other end of it. The beginning is always tough but I am on the edge of my seat. I can't WAIT to see what my new home is going to look like!

I sadly dont have much Hidden Fox to update you on. There has been so much LIFE happening that I have had to put HF a side a bit and focus on some other things. Everything is balancing itself back out now and I am shifting gears. I have been put into over drive and have my super hero skin on! This month I will tackle all aspects of my life and come out on top. It will be hard but I WILL make it happen! As I have said before, failure is NOT an option. Success is the only path! So on THAT note, lets pump up the jams and get this party started right! (Throw back reference. Haha!)

Things that keep me motivated!

Cheese and bread will always make me happy. I have never met a cheese I didn't like! Nothing fills you up quite as perfectly. <3
 Music has and always will be the soundtrack to my life. I am always listening to music even when I'm in silence. I hear it everywhere all the time and there is always a perfect song to fit your mood!
Love, what can I say? Whether it is from a pet, friend, family member or significant other, LOVE is one of the most powerful energies in existence!

I would also like to say HAPPY FEBRUARY!! Yes we all know Valentines Day is coming. It has gotten a bad wrap for far too long. Lets take a moment and consider something. To all of my single Foxes out there, IT ISNT ONLY FOR COUPLES!!! Last year my friend Brit (from RosMari Brand) and I decided that we would start our own tradition. We get together, get all dolled up, pick a fancy restaurant and have a girls night out. We don't say "F*ck Vday," we make it about us and our friendship. We celebrate love and compassion. You can do this with ANY holiday. Make it about something positive, anything you want! We had a LOT of fun last year! Its one of my fondest memories :) I will try and find some pics from last year for you all. Buy your best friend some flowers and chocolate. Go out and DO something instead of sitting on the couch sad. I have a significant other but they aren't able to be with me on Vday so I make other plans instead of crying and feeling alone. :) Now I look forward to my time with brit!! WINING!

Ill end with this silly photo. When life gets tricky, just put on your hard hat and get to work! :)
