#TBT

Happy Thursday! I did this side-by-side comparison of my health and wellness journey and let me just tell you, the photo doesn’t do it justice! I’ve had so many incredible changes to, not only my physical appearance, but my mental health as well. What you don’t see in this before and after is the mindset…

Lent Check-In / No Alcohol

It’s been 28 days since Lent started and 32 since my last drink! That’s right. This is the longest in my drinking years I have gone without a drop of alcohol. And you know what? I feel fine. I feel good actually. Every Friday my boyfriend and I (still) go to Cooper’s Hawk Restaurant &…

Why I Weigh Myself Daily

I used to cringe at the idea of weighing myself every morning. I was terrified that the Chipotle I ate the night before would rear its ugly head in the form of a 5 pound weight gain. When I did weigh myself after eating right and working out sometimes the number didn’t match the number…

Week 1 Check In – without Alcohol

It has been one week since I have given up alcohol for lent! I honestly don’t feel any different! Going 7 whole days without alcohol was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. I didn’t wake up and immediately feel clearer or have an orb of light shooting out of me…

My Weight Loss Journey

When I was little I was always told to “finish my food” before I could leave the table. When I was in high school and my first boyfriend broke up with me my dad offered to take me out to eat, whatever I wanted (picture Portillos chocolate cake shake, bacon cheeseburger, and large cheese fries).…

Learning to Slow Down

This week has been draining mentally and physically. With the new moon coming into the picture I feel like my energy levels have been all over the place. I’ve been feeling more irritable and overall grumpy. My saving grace has been my workouts and using energize to get me focused. I’m glad I’ve been sticking…

January was a Tough Year but We Made It!

What can I possibly say about the first 31 days of 2019 other than BURRR…. The beginning of the month started off great! I had a 9 day countdown until I flew to Ft. Myers in Florida to see my boyfriends mom for 5 days before driving over to Ft. Lauderdale to vacation for another…

No More FOMO

I have this fire burning inside of me. It’s telling me that “It’s okay to not be okay”. What I mean by that is, it’s okay to not have it all together. One of the reasons I started my blog was to show that it’s okay to be a work in progress and that yes,…
