On the first day of June, I set out to run or walk a mile every day for the month with the #StreakingWithTheCoolKids challenge. My motivation to run has been completely gone because I’ve been having some trouble with running since having the baby. I’m slower and it’s frustrating. I guess the only reason it’s so upsetting is that I know what I’m capable of doing. I thought I would come back stronger and faster than I did before, but I was wrong. There’s been some pain with the running too but I’ve seemed to have worked through those issues… View Post

What’s the point? When things aren’t going my way, this is how I feel. It’s easy to question why to continue the path or even why to keep trying at something. Wondering what is the point, is the point. I won’t sugar coat things for you. Things haven’t been going my way. Every time I feel like I’ve made it over one hurdle then I feel like I’m hit with another roadblock. Life is a tricky thing and navigating it gets rough for me. I’m a sensitive person. I have a hard exterior, but I do take on other people’s… View Post

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a successful start to the week.  I just wanted to hop on and share my meal prepping and grocery shopping this week.  I may have gotten a little bit too ambitious with my meal prep this week or maybe I was just feeling a bit tired. Meal prepping isn’t hard as long as your organized. Just carve out some time of your day to get it done (2 hours) and you should be good. Also, find different ways of cooking things so everything doesn’t need to go in the oven. Here’s what is on… View Post

My baby (to be known as Tiny Tot) turned 1 and a half (in mom terms 18 months). I’ve never really had to opportunity to talk about her much on the blog because I didn’t think there was a place for it. Guess what? It’s the place for it now. I’ve been blessed to be able to spend time with my child and still work full-time. Sometimes it’s challenging and sometimes it’s just not easy. There are days when I do have to depend on the care of others to help me out, but for the most part, she’s with… View Post

I’m searching for some summer salads!  I’ll probably revive this search for year round, but I don’t always have access to a microwave for lunch so I’m looking for foods that I can eat without warming it up.  Also, I’m not always wanting to eat a “traditional” salad because let’s be honest, a girl can only eat so much lettuce. There might be a twisted misconception that a salad must always look a certain way.  I will admit, I do not always like eating the traditional salad but it’s something gravitate to because it’s easy. My go-to no warm up… View Post
