Make It A Habit // Cleaning + Organizing

I am not a natural homemaker, nor am I a perfect housekeeper. At all. Not in the least. There, I’ve said it. It’s sad, but true.

But it’s the nature of “adulting” that you have to do these things, among many other things you may not want to do, things you may not be good at, things you should do. And keeping your house clean and tidy is one of those things. Right? So since it isn’t second nature to me, I need as much help as I can get in making these chores stick.

So how do I change my colors and make these chores stick as habit? Good question… let me know if you have the answer! lol…

One Small Change for Less Stress this Holiday

UNSUBSCRIBE FROM ALL THOSE EMAILS!

Is it just me or are you fighting a never ending battle with emails too? And especially at this time of year! I am bombarded every time I turn around. Stores sending email after email, every day, even multiple times a day. I don’t mind so much if it’s a store I’m looking to shop at. Of course I want to know about their sales! But it’s every place I’ve ever bought anything from ever. And it stresses me out to see all those badges on my phone, haha…

Make It A Habit // Meal Planning + Food Prep

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now, at least several weeks, maybe a couple of months even. But I always felt like I wasn’t ready. Like I was a fraud for speaking about diet and meal planning and food prep. You see, I love food. Good food, in particular. Some not so good for you food too. And while I wouldn’t say I binge, I can lose control sometimes. I do overeat occasionally. I want to lose weight (as of typing this I’m about 30 pounds overweight), but I don’t want to be on a diet. I want to find a balance that is a lifestyle change I can maintain and not feel deprived or sad about. But I’m no expert and I’m still working on what that balance is exactly.

BBG Pre-Training Week 1 Check In

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!!!

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!

Make It A Habit // Health + Fitness

Hello, happy Wednesday! I’m jumping on the blog today with a post about fitness, injuries, my relationship with exercise and my goals moving forward.

I never was an athlete growing up. I absolutely dreaded P.E., especially after dislocating my kneecap in 6th grade and then spending three weeks in a straight leg cast to prevent it from happening again. NOTE: it has dislocated several other times over the years, but I digress! It made running less fun (not that it ever was for me, lol), and it also made me more fearful of hurting myself again. I don’t think I ever did another cartwheel after that fateful gymnastics P.E. lesson back in ’96.
