I can’t believe I will be turning 32 years old in two months. November 8th to be exact and honestly I’m getting very excited. I think its because 31 was a rough year for me. I’m finally crawling out of a weird funk. Don’t get me wrong, I had some amazing things happen over the last year, but my overall good mental health wasn’t always there. Nor do I expect to be high on […]
Before I go any further with my staycation post. I have to be honest… for the last two years, I’ve always said to others that I’m the laziest blogger EVER. Truth is, I’m not. I mean, I was starting to think something was seriously wrong with me because I have a million awesome ideas written down and I would never execute! I’d start writing post and either I’d complete it, never post, and it would […]
Okay, so Thanksgiving is like two weeks away, and you’ve just decided that you want to host a “Friendsgiving”. NO SWEAT! Here are a few tips on how to put together an amazing stress free shindig! First of all, do not, I repeat, DO NOT take on all the responsibility of preparing the food! Potluck style is your best friend for this type of event! As the host, decide on what style […]
I finally jumped on the bandwagon! Salad prepping using mason jars has made my life so much easier. I should have been using this technique long ago. Serious, all over the internet I would see people raving about how much they loved using the jars for their salads. I literally told myself for a year to try it out, but I never did. Figures… One Saturday morning I was running errands before a big snow […]
In this past month I've had to train myself. Train myself to stay focused. Focus to complete a goal daily. Focus to complet my goal of drinking a gallon of water a day wasn't that easy. Drinking a gallon of water takes time and has to be done throughout the day. The focus comes in when you have a million other things going on on any given day, and you have to remember you still have a task that must be completed by the the end of it. The focus must come in to stop yourself from getting caught up in a hectic day, take a few minutes to stop, gather yourself, and do something healthy for your body.
I can’t believe it’s already February! Time is flying by. I only have 16 more days left in this water challenge! I am happy to announce that I made my goal every day this week! I feel awesome about that 🙂 I was really focused and it paid off. Since I’ve been drinking at least 128 oz consistently for two weeks now, everyday I’m finding it easier to drink large amounts of water daily. Before I […]
Week two into my #30DayWaterChallenge and I’m feeling great! As promised, here is a quick update on my water journey. Before I began this challenge 1 week ago my morning went something like this: Wake up, stumble downstairs to the kitchen, immediately turn the Keurig on, and have a cup of coffee. It’s pretty much the same now, but instead of #butfirstcoffee, it’s #butfirstwater. Opening the refrigerator, grabbing my water bottle from the bottom shelf […]
Each year of my life is a special gift from God and I really want to make sure I'm taking advantage of each day. I want to do things that make me happy and get me excited about life. I want to make sure I am actually doing the little things I tell myself I want do but never really get around to it. So, I made a list of 28 things I want to do before my birthday rolls back around next year, November 8th, and I turn 29.
