Week in Review #4 2020

Hello, friends. I feel like I just did this post, probably because I was late putting the last week in review up. It’s been a week. I’ve tried to stay off of social media due to the nastiness of what went on. It’s been nice to have a bit of a break. My Tot had some sinus issues this week, which made her a bit whiny. That’s mom’s life, though. She’s feeling better, but it’s made me work that much harder.   The blog suffered a bit, but I did get my gift guide for runners.  I worked hard on this…View Post

Week in Review #3 2020

Week in Review #3 2020

Hello friends. This blog is late because I couldn’t bring myself to recap the week. To say this is a challenging time in the country would be an understatement. It’s sad to see people losing friendships and saying NASTY things to each over politics. We can co-exist without making that define them. It’s sad seeing people in real life saying things to each other that are damaging. I know it runs a bit deeper than this, but we should be kind and understanding. On to the week: I wasn’t a good blogger because I didn’t take a picture of anything…

Week in review #2 2020

Week in review #2 2020

Hello, friends. This week turned out to be a good week. We came back from a very long road trip on Monday, so we spent that day driving through all the southern states. The week was a bit more hectic because the week started a day late for me, so laundry, grocery shopping, and catching up on things took the week’s forefront. I had the LONGEST to-do list on Tuesday, but I managed to get everything done. But I did a post on the blog three times and got my videos up. I had big goals for this year, and…

Is HelloFresh worth a try?

Is HelloFresh worth a try?

I wanted to do an honest review of HelloFresh to answer the question, “is HelloFresh worth it?” I received a free box by a friend referral, and I thought there was nothing to lose. My overall experience with HelloFresh is positive, but I want to dig into the details with a blog post. Price point: I received three meals of two servings each meal so I could have leftovers. I did get my first week free, but I did pay $61.93 for a second box coming this week. That is $7.99 per serving and a shipping cost of $8.99. For…

What healthy living means to me

What healthy living means to me

When I started my weight loss journey, I really didn’t know the world before me. The one thing I knew was we had to stop eating fast food for every meal and leave the sugary sodas on the shelf. Might we have also needed a bit more exercise? The jury was still out on that point. Quickly, I learned that people are health “know it alls”, and their way is always the best. Some people picked me because I still ate processed foods (aka my favorite Healthy Choice meals). Some people took offense I purchased Splenda and frozen vegetables and…

Week in Review #1 2020

Week in Review #1 2020

Welcome to the week in review where I recap the week  (weekly workouts, what I ate, what I did), and the things I learned along the way. Compared to the past few weeks, this week has been perfect. If you’ve been watching my videos, you know I haven’t been sleeping well the past few weeks, but this week has been much better. I’ve been sleeping throughout the night now, and I may be waking up earlier than I want, but I feel like I’m getting quality sleep. So what have I’ve been doing differently? The two noticeable things were different…

How to make a change

How to make a change

Going back to regular content after social media supported Black Lives Matter by uplifting black voices last week seems a bit odd. There’s still a discussion in progress that I don’t want to end. People are open to knowing and understanding at this moment in time. I encourage all of us to do better and look at what we can do to change the way race is handled in our country. I will get back to regular content, but I didn’t feel I could return to blogging without getting this post done. I don’t tend to talk about race because…

Lessons from the social distancing thing

Lessons from the social distancing thing

Hello all, from a social distancing house. Can you believe what’s going on in the world right now? Did you ever think someone would tell you shouldn’t leave your home? It’s really a tough situation, but we are stronger together. Please give yourself the grace to feel whatever it is you need to feel, but don’t let it overwhelm you. Some days you might be super motivated to get stuff done, and other days you might want to sit around in your pajamas.  It’s a time in life when we aren’t in control of the things happening around us, but…
