Reblog from Healthy Life Happy Wife

My heart has been heavy since I first heard the new of the tragedy that took place in Connecticut. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims.

Motivational Monday: Super Soul


I really love Super Soul Sundays on the Channel OWN. It’s really amazing the stories people have on their journey to peace and spirituality. With that being said, there is a segment where people show you their “space”: the place that they feel most at peace.

I am working on doing that this week. When I finish organizing my room and getting all my crap situated, I will work on making it a space that I feel good and unstressed in.

Please send me your ideas on ways I can do that. I would so appreciate it! Feel free to comment!

All Pack And Ready

I just finished packing for my thanksgiving trip. I am going home with one of my good friends to celebrate with him and his family. My family doesn’t really get along and isn’t into the holidays, so it feels good to have somewhere to go anyway.


My roommate will be here so my puppy is staying here with her (sniff sniff).

I have to work today 3-9:30 so I have to get everything out the way now because I know I won’t do most of it after work.

20121121-130121.jpg I did my cardio this morning during my walk with my dog. I’m going to do my strength workout tonight after the gym closes before I head home and get it out the way. I know I’m going to probably gain 5 pounds this week so I’m trying to prepare in advance lol.

I really hope you all have a wonderful holiday with the people you care about! Cheers!

How I’m Preparing for the Holiday Food Haul

This is how I prepare for days of stuffing my face. I eat, but I follow a few simple rules.

1. No carbs after 5pm and any carbs must be complex.
2. High protein
3. No eating three hours before bed.
4. 6 small meals

I know these are basic rules but it really does help me prepare for feasting. I also do a walk in the morning before I eat and a walk after, because I know I’m not going to hit the gym lol.

Motivational Monday thanksgiving 2012


It’s almost thanksgiving guys so I’m not going to tell you not to enjoy the holiday. I will say enjoy it but try not to overindulge. That third or forth slice of whatever just isn’t necessary.

I decided to take the time this week to focus on losing before I gain. I wanted to drop some pounds before my possible holiday gain. I love food, so I won’t judge you, but at least workout that morning.
