  • 3 Tips to Make the Most of Your Gym Time
    Hello everyone! Today’s blog is all about something I hear quite frequently: “I don’t have time to go to the gym”. This may not be a popular opinion, but I’m telling you now, it’s not about the time you have, it’s about how you prioritize that time. If you have time for some Netflix, you have time for

  • The Kitchen Transformation
    Hello everyone! I have a special, and scary, post for you today. I’ve talked a little bit on here about my recent home purchase. I live in a home built in the 60s which means it has some interesting quirks to it. The previous owner left it in less than desirable condition which has left us with

  • Job Dissatisfaction
    We’ve all been there. It’s not the norm to jump in to the job market and be 100% satisfied and fulfilled with your first job. That’s the whole reason people change jobs in the first place.

  • 5 Tips for Getting Your Sleepy Self Ready Faster
    Hey everyone! It’s finally Friday, which means no more getting up early to go to work for the next two days. As a long commuter, I can’t even begin to explain how excited I am about that. My commute is approximately an hour each way, which ends up being two hours per day. Truth be told, my days of making

  • I Cut Off My Hair (and you can, too!)
    I recently underwent a big change. Actually, I underwent several, major life changes, but we’re just talking about hair here (sort of).   Long hair is often prized. I see it in magainzes, TV, and on just about every Instagram-model-on-the-beach picture. Many people don’t believe women can look

  • I️ made it to spin again! I️ haven’t really made up my mind on this workout yet. It’s really great and I️ dislike cardio but I️ can do this, AND I️ feel great after. We’ll see if it lasts!

  • Out in the yard working on projects again! What could we be doing...?
  • Our go-to meal at home is some variation of chicken, rice, and veggies. It’s quick, cheap, filling, and comforting. We use a lot of chicken thighs as they are a much more flavorful alternative to chicken breasts! What’s your go-to easy meal? 🍋
  • Yard work is a workout! When I️ do yard work with my watch, I️ set it on “mixed cardio”. I️ really do get my heart rate up past 150 quite often!
