• Dip Your Way to Healthy Eating

    Tonight was the first night in about a week that I’ve had a real workout with my trainer. To say that my lower half is feeling like Jell-O is an understatement. After my workout I should have been feeling good but instead I was still feeling down about my weight. Ugh. I am so sick of feeling “gross” and I’m trying to lose weight but gosh it’s hard. Needless to say, time to get off the pity pot, so after my shower, I decided to really up my weight loss game, by getting back on track with my eating habits and daily logging. I have noticed that I do REALLY…

  • Review: Blender Girl Smoothies

    It’s not often that I find a book I don’t like so much…however, with this cookbook, I was feeling very incomplete. To say that I was excited to try this was an understatement, especially with smoothies being all the rage now. Here are my thoughts on the Blender Girl Smoothies: Ingredients need to be prepped well in advance There is no just go into the cupboard to find them I found quicker recipes online The book is colorful and fun to look at Maybe if I was more invested in complicated smoothies I would be into this I have however let my friend borrow this and she has made more…

  • Where does all the money go?

    Why am I so crappy with money? Is anyone else in the same boat? I get a paid a decent salary but yet never seem to be able to save anything. Not only can’t I save money for some reason but I’m starting to feel inadequate compared to others my age who have families and houses. Maybe it’s genetic? I literally had to give my mother my credit card because I just can’t be trusted. I am able to save a bit, it’s certainly not what I would like to be saving. It’s not like this is a new problem it’s just really bothering me tonight for some reason. So…

  • Hair, Makeup, & Skin…oh my!!

    You know how much I love Summer but I gotta be honest, it’s just like Winter, meaning I have a whole other regiment for my skin, makeup, and hair. The reason for this post, is tonight, after my shower, I realized that I have 6 bottles in the shower, 6! The reason being, my summer hair seems to be different from my winter, spring, and fall hair. Not only is my hair affected but so isn’t my skin and makeup routine. What’s so different you ask? Well I’ll tell you… Hair: Over the past few months my scalp was out of control, like dry, flaking, craziness! The first thing was…

  • Spotlight: Personal Training Impacts

    As some of you know I started working with a personal trainer about six weeks ago. To say that I love it is an understatement. It’s the only time that I like working out and doesn’t feel like pulling teeth. That being said, I was able to put some research together about personal training but more specifically martial arts. I’m sure that all personal trainers do their jobs because of one thing. Because they love and enjoy it. The sense of satisfaction they get when seeing their client change for the better with amazing results, and the fact that they are able to share that journey with them is something…
