I have this fire burning inside of me. It’s telling me that “It’s okay to not be okay”. What I mean by that is, it’s okay to not have it all together. One of the reasons I started my blog was to show that it’s okay to be a work in progress and that yes, sometimes the struggle is real. But how you choose to … Continue reading No More FOMO
When I was 11-16 I suffered from an eating disorder. I didn’t know how to manage the chaos that was my life: school, friends, boys, family, etc. The one thing I thought I could control was my weight. I suddenly became obsessed with losing weight. Not knowing much about exercise outside of P.E. class or cheerleading practice I decided to focus on losing weight by … Continue reading From Cocktails to Coffee and Everything in Between
Every month I like to set aside some time to write out my goals for the month, budget my bills out, and track where my weight is at. It gives me the chance to view my progress and to set some goals for the next 4 weeks. We’re just two months out from the New Year and for once, I am actually looking forward … Continue reading New Month, New Goals, Same Mindset
I’m at such a crossroads right now because I’m in the process of losing weight but still being too big for some of my favorite clothes.

I’ve been on a weight loss journey for the past couple weeks now and I’m getting to the point in my dedication where I’m starting to obsess and feel guilty at times. I’m on a structured meal plan and fitness routine that makes me anxious when I veer from it. Example, last night was my birthday dinner celebration at Portillos. For one, a salad has … Continue reading It’s Called Indulging not Cheating
Fashion starts with the foundation of the body, mind, and soul. You can not be beautiful on the outside unless you are on the inside. No one ever really talks about what it takes to exude the overall package. So many people are willing to settle for the image of the girl in the Instagram post but no one wants to think about what it … Continue reading Look Good AND Feel Good?
I love those memes everywhere where it says “When you get paid every two weeks” and the first photo is of a gourmet lobster meal and it’s captioned “Week 1” and then the next picture is a cup full of ice water captioned “Week 2”. It’s funny because it’s true. Ever since I started working and paying for things I’ve wanted my mom’s always nagging … Continue reading How to Live When You Live Paycheck to Paycheck
Every year it’s the same “New Year New Me” bullshit we’ve grown accustomed to hearing and laughing off. Some of us start with the usual, “I’m going to lose weight! I’m going to save money! I’m going to go to the gym and workout with a trainer 3 times a week! I’m going to travel more!” …. You get the idea. Everything starts off great … Continue reading 5 Ways to Stick to Your Goals in 2018!
