Spring Cleaning: Getting Rid of That Winter Sludge

OOOOOOH MY GOSH!!!  UUUUUUUUGH!!! I GAINED 10 POUNDS AND WE ARE HALFWAY THROUGH MARCH!  WHAT THE HELL!!!! YOU, the scale, ARE GOING BACKWARDS! This is the exact conversation that took place with my scale one early morning last week.  I was beyond frustrated and annoyed with myself. When really there were so many things that made this miniature meltdown happen.   First, it was the month after a whole month of celebrating birthdays. I had been eating out, having cake,…

Who Are You: Discovering and Developing Your Self-Identity

Who Are You: Discovering and Developing Your Self-Identity

Heyo Everyone! This was an unexpected topic that I had no intentions of writing about.  Sometimes these become the best topics and posts though. Every year as it gets close to my birthday I do a personal self-assessment of the year that is coming to a close and what my favorite parts were and what I want to do to improve this upcoming personal year.   For anyone that knows me they know, 17 is my lucky number so I…

90 Day Fitness Challenge

90 Day Fitness Challenge

Hey Everyone! We are starting a 90-day fitness challenge just in time for summer. Our goal isn’t to lose a bunch of weight, but instead to make living a healthier lifestyle a habit.

Pregnancy 911: A Purple Leg & Bloody Breast Milk

Pregnancy 911: A Purple Leg & Bloody Breast Milk

Before I get into my pregnancy horror story, I want to start by saying I am blessed to have a healthy, happy three-month-old baby boy. That being said, grab your wine, you’re in for quite an experience. After surviving 4 months of “morning sickness” (I don’t know who the genius was that named it that! Should be 24/7 sickness.) I thought it would be smooth sailing. However, I was very wrong. Around the end of my sixth month, I started…

#MeToo A Letter From A Friend

#MeToo A Letter From A Friend

I would like to give a little preface before jumping to Cristal’s story.  For people who might not know what #MeToo is, it is a movement that exploded on social media that gave women who have been sexually assaulted and/or harassed a voice to say: “me too”, “you’re not the only one”, “I’ve experienced that also”.  The goal was to show just how many women on a daily basis experience such atrocious behavior towards them. I, Corrie, have my own…

Financial Freedom Month 1

Financial Freedom Month 1

Now that the new year has arrived what better time to begin a financial journey.  Really any time is a good time to step off the hamster wheel of poor money management. If you are anything like me you’re saying to yourself, “where do I even begin … this monster will be the death of me!”  So five years ago I decided to enlist the help of a financial adviser. He was great!  We sat down, looked at what I…
