Clean Eating Meal Plan

  When I started my health and fitness journey back in April, I had no clue what “clean eating” meant, but I knew it sounded scary, overwhelming, and like it would seriously be NO FUN. Honestly, if someone had told me that 21 Day Fix meant clean eating before I bought the program, I might not have even gotten it. I just knew clean eating was not something I wanted to do. In all seriousness, I didn’t even realize that it WAS clean eating for…Continue Reading “Clean Eating Meal Plan”

World Suicide Prevention Day

September 10th was World Suicide Prevention Day. I’ve attempted to write this post several times over the past several days, but haven’t been able to finish. This subject is close to my heart, which makes it harder to put things into words. This is something I haven’t shared with many people, but, especially this week, I think it is something that needs to be shared. If I can help save even one person, then it is worth the uncomfortableness that I am feeling now.   When I…Continue Reading “World Suicide Prevention Day”

Confessions and Commitments

So I have some confessions to make, and then some new commitments to make too! I haven’t done a great job of posting, obviously, and I’ve done an even worse job with my fitness and nutrition over the past week. Honestly it was just one excuse after the other, which came to a head yesterday when little man had to stay home from school because he had a sinus infection, and I (not my husband, but ME) suggested we go to this pizza buffet for…Continue Reading “Confessions and Commitments”

Ok, let’s try this again. I really feel like I haven’t been true to myself when trying to write my blog, and I feel like that’s why I haven’t stuck with it. I’ve been trying to be something I’m not. Some cute little crafty stay-at-home mom that cooks all these elaborate dishes and makes her own laundry detergent and does tons of DIY projects. But let’s face it, that’s not me. I wish I was more like these moms. I have a lot of respect…Continue Reading “The truth of the matter…”

You are exactly where you are meant to be…

  Lately I have been very anxious about a lot of things. In June of last year, I learned that my company had been sold, and that our new parent company planned to absorb our business and eliminate our office. We all had the opportunity to accept a position at one of their other locations, but the closest one was still several hours away. With a young child, and a close-knit extended family, that isn’t an option for us. We were told that most of…Continue Reading “You are exactly where you are meant to be…”

Conversation Hearts Garland – FREE Printable!!

  Happy Valentine’s Day! Ok, I am a day early, but I finally got around to decorating and I can totally feel the love now! I just love how cute the little Valentine’s Day conversation hearts are, but I really don’t like eating them at all. They are a classic Valentine’s Day tradition, but putting them on the wall seems like a much better idea than eating them, to me! This is a super simple, super cheap decorating idea, that requires nothing more than a…Continue Reading “Conversation Hearts Garland – FREE Printable!!”
