Episode #2: Changing your mindset

Episode #2: Changing your mindset “Just give up the state of mind you’re in. If you want to be somebody else. If you’re tired of fighting battles with yourself, if you want to be somebody else, change your mind.” – Sister Hazel Introduction: It’s that time again for another episode of the podcast. I’m excited to talk about the change in mindset this week. I’m not sure why it makes me so energized, but I feel it’s an essential aspect of self-improvement.  There is going to be storytime this week to show examples of how I had to change my…View Post

Tips to create healthy habits

Tips to create healthy habits

The start of the new year is a time of year when people get in gear about health and fitness, and I want everyone to succeed at those goals. I wanted to share with you tips on creating healthy habits. When a person creates habits, you will be more likely to engrain those routines into your everyday life where it doesn’t seem like work. No diets. Not fads. It is just creating the habits that will take you on a new journey. Creating a new routine isn’t necessarily about weight loss and can be applied to any habits you are…

Your 2020 infinite playlist

Your 2020 infinite playlist

Happy New Year! I haven’t posted in the new year not because it wasn’t on my mind, but because I was just trying to get my ish together. Everyone suggests the new year brings all of these fabulous things, and we all of a sudden become new people. Where it may be the start of a new year (and in this case; a fresh new decade), we are still the same people on December 31, 2019, 11:59 pm as we are on January 1, 2020. There’s nothing magical that happens. We all don’t develop a case of new year amnesia. …

I walked a half marathon

I walked a half marathon

I walked a half marathon. I walked the Rock n Roll San Antonio Half Marathon in 3 hours and 10 minutes. Walking a half marathon may not seem like a big deal, but I get many comments about how people don’t sign up for races because they are afraid of walking. When did walking become a problem? News flash: walking isn’t a bad thing. Walking burns the same amount of calories as running; it just may take you a bit longer. There’s nothing wrong with walking. I’m not the first person to walk a half marathon, so I don’t think…

What is the awesome mindset?

What is the awesome mindset?

Do you have an awesome mindset? It’s essential to cultivate positivity in your life, starting with yourself. The awesome mindset IS NOT about being overly confident or selfish. IT IS about building confidence to PRAISE yourself during your thriving moments, and to power to believe in yourself during those unsure life moments. This mindset is about validating your own feelings and thoughts without ever feeling bad about it. When making those priority lists in life, you probably don’t even put yourself on the list at all. But without making yourself a priority, you can ‘t be a reliable partner, parent,…

Intentions for the year end

Intentions for the year end

Hello everyone, and happy November! Welcome back to the blog. The end of the year is coming, which means there is still time to accomplish new goals or start those projects you never got to yet. The end of the year is the time to finish the year strong. Take the time to refocus and think about the things you wanted to accomplish or start in 2019 that just never got a boost in the year. I wanted to read 15 books this year, and I am nowhere near that goal, but there is still time for me to refocus…

September is being stronger than my excuses.

September is being stronger than my excuses.

I don’t know why this blog post is so hard for me to write. I’ve been trying to write it for a week. I strive to be real and authentic on my blog. I want to share the real things in life and not wrap it up in a pretty Instagram post. I try to be real. I don’t want people thinking I have all the answers or I have my stuff together. News flash: I don’t have it all together. I’m not perfect. I made a list of all the things I want to talk about on my blog…

June break for better content

June break for better content

Hello everyone!  It’s June and it’s the time of the year When I take a small break from the blog. After attending Mom2.0 in April, I learned I need to take my blog in a direction. I need to spend more time on developing USEFUL content alongside those personal moments I love to share. I have taken the last week to brainstorm the type of content I want to provide in the next year. I have worked on new ideas and put pen to paper to flush those ideas out. During the time, I have also learned food blogging just…

How to get back into a routine

How to get back into a routine

Hey all!  Happy Global Running Day!  Maybe I should spend the day talking about running, but I’m going to talk about getting back in a routine after having a little “break.”  I spent the last week being sick, which gave me a lot of time to think things out.  I’ve also been wasting a lot of time watching YouTube videos instead of putting my plans into action.  I might be lacking a bit of focus in life.  I may just need a kick in the butt to get myself back into a functioning member of society. After the marathon, I…

Friday File: Mother’s Day, Bosch, guilty pleasures, and what I ate

Happy Friday! We’ve made it through the week, and now it’s time for the Friday File. This is my time to run down everything that happened over the week. Honestly, I haven’t made it around to doing a weekly Friday File, but I’m working on it. This week has been a rebuilding week for me. I’m a bit lost without a rigid running schedule and no goals in sight. I have more time to work on building content for this blog, which a massive focus for me the past month. I spent Mother’s Day celebrating and eating way too much…
