It’s been 28 days since Lent started and 32 since my last drink! That’s right. This is the longest in my drinking years I have gone without a drop of alcohol. And you know what? I feel fine. I feel good actually. Every Friday my boyfriend and I (still) go to Cooper’s Hawk Restaurant & Winery for dinner. He’ll have a glass of wine and … Continue reading Lent Check-In / No Alcohol
It has been one week since I have given up alcohol for lent! I honestly don’t feel any different! Going 7 whole days without alcohol was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. I didn’t wake up and immediately feel clearer or have an orb of light shooting out of me or whatever people say it’s like. I just felt like … Continue reading Week 1 Check In – without Alcohol
I was raised Catholic and attended Catholic school from kindergarten through 4th grade. I joke that “I did my time” when people ask me why I don’t go to Church on Sundays. Sometimes I’ll even throw out a “Jesus is with me always”! The other day I read an article titled What Happens to Your Body When You Haven’t Drunk Alcohol for 28 Days and it inspired … Continue reading I’m Giving Up Alcohol for Lent
When I was little I was always told to “finish my food” before I could leave the table. When I was in high school and my first boyfriend broke up with me my dad offered to take me out to eat, whatever I wanted (picture Portillos chocolate cake shake, bacon cheeseburger, and large cheese fries). When I was 22 I was experiencing chronic heart burn … Continue reading My Weight Loss Journey
What can I possibly say about the first 31 days of 2019 other than BURRR…. The beginning of the month started off great! I had a 9 day countdown until I flew to Ft. Myers in Florida to see my boyfriends mom for 5 days before driving over to Ft. Lauderdale to vacation for another 5 days, I completed a 3 day juice cleanse, and … Continue reading January was a Tough Year but We Made It!
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
I’m always on the go! From 6am-9pm you’ll constantly catch me running around whether it’s working all day downtown or working out with my trainer! Some nights I switch it up and take a Pilates class. The last thing I need is a pimple popping up and ruining my day! I don’t usually have time to check my makeup in the mirror so I make … Continue reading My On-the-Go Skincare Savior
With the holiday season in full effect I’m bracing myself for all the yummy treats that it entails! I have my work Christmas part this week, Christmas Eve and Day dinners coming up, New Year’s Eve dinner, and then I’m taking a 9 day trip to Florida the second week of January oh my! I have been fortunate enough the past 6 months to develop … Continue reading I Did a 3 Day Juice Cleanse and I LIKED it!
Ever notice how you want to save money at the end of the year and that just so happens to be when all the holiday events, shopping, and trips get planned? Same. I’m in this back and forth battle of, “Save your money” and “Oooh I wanna go to that, Oooh I wanna buy that, and ooooh I need that!” In an effort to stay … Continue reading 5 Ways to Prepare for the Holidays on a Budget
