This or That: Summer Tag

Happy Monday!

I am currently in Mexico visiting my family so I wanted today’s post to be fun and simple.  I love answering tags so I thought I summer tag would be great.  I found this tag on LifeThroughTSG so make sure to check her’s out as well!!

This or That: Summer Tag

Summer Health Goals

Having specific goals is the key to success!!  What also helps is breaking down goals.  My main goal is to lose weight and be healthy.  That is a pretty vague goal but if I break it down smaller and get specific, it will help me reach my main goal.

Summer Health Goals

I have come up with 4 goals that I want to work on this summer.  I will try my best to keep them up during my vacation but I’m not going to fret if I don’t because after all it is vacation!  So keep reading to see the four goals I will be working on this summer! Enjoy!!  Continue reading

Focusing on the Present

Happy Sunday!!

I was having a bit of trouble trying to think of a theme for this week and finally this morning I thought of one that perfectly sums up this week.  Focusing on the Present really summarizes my week because I caught myself getting overwhelmed about the future a lot this week!

Focusing on the Present

As many of you may know, I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree this May.  While I am super happy and proud that I reached such a huge milestone, it also means that I have to find a full time job!  The future can be super scary to think about but remembering to focus on the present really helps!!  Keep reading to see how my week went as well as how I cope when I start thinking too much about my future.  Enjoy!

Green Smoothie + Progress

Getting my servings of veggies and fruits can sometimes be a bit a challenge for me, especially veggies.  However, one of my favorite ways to get my fruit and veggies in is with a green smoothie!!  I love having this smoothie for breakfast but it great for any time of day.  It’s also super refreshing, perfect for the summer!!

Green Smoothie

Today I will be sharing my green smoothie recipe as well as my progress so far in my weightloss journey so keep reading!!  Continue reading

Getting Organized

Happy Sunday!!!

Since graduating I’ve been feeling like something is missing.  Maybe it’s the structure of having to always be studying or working on a paper or project.  It kept me busy and helped me enjoy my down time a lot.  Now I don’t have that and basically go to work and then get home and chill.  Thursday morning I was going through my old pictures and when I got to the pictures I took during the Fall of 2015, I grew nostalgic.  I saw all the pretty pics I had taken for posts and missed keeping up Makeup & Flowers.

Getting Organized

I got up that day and started reading a very interesting post (Plan you Blog Content like a Boss by Laura Rebecca Jones) that changed my Thursday from a lazy day to a very productive day.  Keep reading to see how these two things shifted my week and views on my blog!!  Continue reading

Stranded on an Island

Recently I was browsing Pinterest for some blog post ideas and I stubbled upon a post by A Girl, Obsessed.  She list some post ideas specifically for beauty bloggers as well as other  categories.  One of the ideas on her list was to write about five products you would take with you if you were stranded on island.  I thought this would be a fun and interesting post.

My Favorite Ways to Workout

Working out is something super important not only when trying to lose weight but also to have a healthy lifestyle overall.  For me, working out is something that I sometimes struggle with and other times I love.  Throughout the years I have done different types of workouts and some I loved while other bored me so much.  It is very important find a workout that you love that way you can look forward to working out instead of dreading.

Sit Back Sunday #17

Happy Sunday!!!

This morning is a rainy Sunday morning and, for me, that is a super awesome way to start out Sunday.  I love raining days, especially when I don’t have to do anything all day. This week was my first week that I am no longer a student, I work on campus so going to school after graduation was super weird!!

Sit Back Sunday

Keep reading to see how my first week out of school went. Enjoy!!!  Continue reading

Slow & Steady

Do any of you remember that story with the tortoise and the fox?  They race and the fox is sure he is going to win so he takes a rest and doesn’t take the race seriously.  On the other hand, the tortoise takes the race seriously and even though he is slower than the fox he ultimately wins the race.  Weightloss is similar to this story, you want to be the tortoise and not the fox.

Slow & Steady

Slow and steady is something that I have recently found is working for me instead of trying to get a fast way or some shortcut.  Keep reading to find out more!! Continue reading
