Health and Wellness is extremely important to me. It has been and always will be a top priority for me in my life.
At home I have (almost) perfected my healthy habits and created a healthy environment to live in. I clean my house weekly, workout daily, have a Britta pitcher always filled with water, buy lots of fruits and vegetables, keep my pre-packaged food to a minimum and do not buy things I don’t want myself to eat, not even for a “treat”.
Your environment and habits play a huge part in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Believe it or not, it’s easy to make those changes at home. The question here today is how do we keep that up at work? The place that many of us spend more time than our actual homes. A place that you don’t own or have total control over. Continue reading “My Top 3 Healthy Work Habits”
I am not sure why, but how fast a picture, video or movement can go viral and spread like wildfire, STILL amazes me.
About two weeks ago my mom started telling me about this cute little woman, Marie Kondo, and her organizing and decluttering lessons. My mom often gets into these kicks of learning something new and then completely masters it overnight, like she will literally stay up all night doing it… and then talks about it, a lot. I do the exact same thing and typically follow everything she does in life, because she is the actual GOAT. Continue reading “The Marie Kondo Movement – Sparking Joy”
Hey guys! I decided to write this blog per my sister’s request. After reading my last post, she really liked it, but wanted to know more. You see, my sister and I are always swapping recipes and meals to try in the upcoming weeks. My sister and brother are some of the best cooks I have encountered, next to my mom, (even though they don’t realize it). If either of them suggests a recipe, you can bet I’m trying it the next week!
In my last blog, I mentioned that when starting to live a healthier lifestyle, it’s 80% your diet and 20% exercise. I want to state this again here because it’s so important for us all to really wrap our heads around this idea: Continue reading “Meal Prep 102: What’s inside”
Meal prepping is hard. Well that’s a lie, it’s not really hard, it’s just time-consuming. VERY time-consuming … Around this time of year a lot of people are putting their New Year’s resolutions to work, starting to eat healthier, and maybe attempting this whole meal prep idea. To those of you who are new to meal prepping: it’s preparing a good chunk of your foods ahead of time so that you have healthy snacks ready to grab and go when you’re on the run. Or if you’re like me, saving yourself from coming in the door at the end of the day, famished, and ready to eat everything in sight. Meal prepping helps me go for the healthy prepared salad or fruit, rather than the chips and salsa. Those small adjustments can make a big impact on your health journey!
Meal prepping helps me a lot, BUT I want to be honest about how I feel about it, because it’s a true LOVE-HATE relationship. Continue reading “Meal Prepping 101”
I want to get real with everyone about this holiday hangover that we are all experiencing, but no one is talking about…The hangover that I conveniently forget about each year as I am dancing around like a fairy, talking about how much I love the holidays. Some of you may be thinking, “what the fudge is she talking about this time?!”… let me explain. Continue reading “The Holiday Hangover…”
We’re currently smack-dab in the middle of the holiday season: many of us have holiday parties, cookie swaps, Secret Santa events, holiday happy hours and other events to help celebrate the “Most Wonderful Time of the Year”. And it really is the most wonderful time!… There’s a buzz of excitement in the air and everyone seems to have more pep in their step. Not to mention all the deliciousness that comes along with this time of the year. Peppermint Mocha everything, Christmas cookies, warm baked brie, homemade Chex Mix, rice pudding, antipasto, and lots and lots of wine… That pretty much sums up our Christmas and the foods that always seem to make their way to my plate during a holiday party, having NO idea how they got there… Continue reading “My Holiday Non-negotiables”
Most people start their “New Year’s resolutions” in January. I normally do too, but this year was different. This year my resolution started in October and has been, and will continue to be, my year of “No”.
If you have been following my previous posts or have talked to me for about 12 seconds in the past 12 months, you would know that I just got married this past August. I’m sure you agree that planning a wedding is incredibly time-consuming. So, the closer I got to the wedding day, I had top force myself to really focus on just the wedding and put any side projects or goals on hold. Therefore, I STOPPED EVERYTHING.
