Pretty much every attempt at BBG goes something like this: start pre-training and kill it day one; wake up day two and can’t sit down or stand up from the toilet (or anywhere really); continue on and make it through week two and then either hurt myself and/or catch a cold; then bail and beat myself up for not making it through yet again. Then repeat.
Hi friends! Welcome back for the second installment of my house tour! I’m so happy to have you back, and I’m excited to share the transformation of my entry, kitchen and dining area. Check it out!
Monday marked the beginning of the fourth quarter, can you believe that? The months are flying by! Slow down 2018!!
Since launching my blog two months ago, I’ve had some ups and downs. I had planned all of my content before I started, and then I got off track and had to regroup and replan and oh boy! The second attempt has gone a lot smoother, but I’m still facing some hurdles. Hello procrastination! Then I get all worked up about missing my self-imposed deadlines. I need to chill. But I also want to set some goals this quarter to push myself, and propel this little blog forward.
Relatively recently, I’ve found myself wrought with bouts of social anxiety, work stresses, and dips into depression-filled downward spirals. I wasn’t always like this. Is it just because I’m getting older? Is this normal as life progresses and sh*t gets real? Or is it something more serious with my mental health? I’m searching for clarity, and ways to cope.
My worst bad habit is procrastinating. And I want to kick it to the curb.
Everyone procrastinates sometimes, right? When faced with a big, daunting task that you just don’t want to do? Even if it’s for a minute or two…or twenty?
How is it already September 1? Where did August go? Where did the summer go?? I know technically it’s still summer, but there’s something about the arrival of September that flips a switch for me. Once this long weekend is over, it’s a different season in my mind. On Tuesday, I’ll have to drive through a 15mph school zone…enough said.
I’m so excited to take you on the first leg of my House Tour today! Let’s begin with the great outdoors! As I mentioned in my first post, I live in a condo/townhome. There’s an HOA, so we’re limited as to what we can do outside, but with approval we are allowed to make some updates.
In the front of each unit we have two parking spaces, and raised flower beds with stone retaining walls on either side of the door. In my previous post, I shared that I’m trying to improve my gardening skills, so I’ve been working on planting flowers in hopes of upping my curb appeal while secretly competing with my neighbor for who did it better (if you’re wondering, he’s winning). And I’m also excited to reveal the other (bigger) changes I’ve made as well. Shall we begin??
As you could probably guess, aside from Pinterest and procrastination (by way of Pinterest), my main hobby is dreaming up and executing new home decorating ideas. But, I am feeling a need to broaden my horizons and take on some new activities. Variety is the spice of life, right? So I’m starting a series about just that. First up, gardening!
Good morning, happy Saturday and happy weekend!
So guys, I did it! I actually started BBG this week like I said I was going to in this post. Yay!!! I made modifications for my back and fitness level, and I didn’t follow everything superrr strictly, but I did something! I still sweat up a storm and was sore the next day. And I’m proud of myself for doing it. So I wanted to come on today and just check in with you all, and give you the scoop on how it went!
Tastes evolve over time. I never used to like asparagus, or broccoli, or peas… okay, I still don’t like peas, haha, but I love, love, LOVE asparagus and can handle, and even enjoy, a side of broccoli if it’s steamed just right. But I digress, because this post isn’t about green veggies. But decor tastes can definitely change over time in the same way your palette can.
