So, packing with a purpose for travel…

So, you have heard it before, I am going to Paris soon! Yay me! Part of any trip or any change requires effort. And this fabulous fantasy holiday involves me preparing for my trip way ahead of time. Who am I fooling? All of my trips involve me getting ready way before anyone else. But…

So, when your mom gets ill, you realize how wack taking her (or anyone) for granted is…

So, I am a good daughter. Really, I am. But I am impatient with my mom. We have that 30 year difference, and she is just not like me at all. I am high energy and I don't sleep a lot and I care about being healthy and I am the opposite of sedentary. She…

So, these are some things to make a vacation easier and more pleasurable, at least for me!

So, I really like to be prepared when I go somewhere. Be it a walk down to the neighborhood pool, a day trip to the mountains, or going across the pond to Paris:). I like to have things to provide entertainment, keep me on a good track with my health, help keep a record of…

So, you can be chic in Paris on the cheap or anywhere you travel…trust me

So, besides the fact that I woke up today and my loved ones are well, I have tons to celebrate because we are at 25 days until we head off to Paris! I have already started gathering up my clothes, mostly dresses (I wear dresses almost everyday) and super cute wraps and little short scarves…

So, I have gotten really good at faking it (not what you may be thinking)

So, I am not talking about in terms of romantic escapades or pretending to be something that I am not. I am talking about removing my feelings about a person/situation and just following their lead. I used to be so wrapped up in people not treating me well, or keeping in touch properly or just…

So, you don’t have to have a niche to write happy…

So, I have decided that I am going to write happy. For me that means I am going to write what I want, despite the likes or comments or accolades. I know that if I write about something to do with clean eating or fitness, that I will get many hits because it is a…

So, apparently if you are too kind, people are not, ways to get past the pattern…

So, despite what some may say about my outspoken and opinionated self, I am kind. Honestly, much too kind to people who clearly don't deserve it. Yet, I keep pushing forward being nice to others and people keep taking advantage, or try to. My guy is always like, "Push back, put people in their place,…

So yay, got nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award!!

  So, I am so so thankful that my fab friend searchingforhumor.blogΒ nominated me for this. She is funny, a great photographer, interesting and her blog is truly special and totally different from anything that I have read. She is a great new friend in the bloggerverse and I implore you to read her material! You…

So, when I’m dedicated, I am dedicated! Steps how to be…

So, I am doing this hardcore HIIT/strength training with super strict meal planning. I have pretty much done everything to a T except a few extra hundred calories during my one cheat meal of the week. Today is the beginning of week 6. At this point I have lost 15lbs and a little over 9…

So delivering food can be fun but dangerous…

So, you may remember a couple of months ago or soon-to-be, I mentioned that I was going to start delivering food part time. Well, it's gone pretty well. I have probably made about seven or eight hundred dollars in 2 months. Which isn't bad if you think about the fact that I'm just riding around…
