    Good Morning

    As a part of a healthy lifestyle a great morning routine is important. I once read that a great morning routine contributes a productive and healthy day. What’s your morning routine? Do you even have one? I do; take my vitamins with a cup of tea and some fruit, look over my weekly to do list and see you it can be done, pin on Pinterest, then start my workout. Workout 45 minutes of Run, Jog and/or walk with 30 minutes of abs, arms and leg workouts 15 minutes of meditation “Always forgive your enemies. Nothing annoys them more.” – Oscar Wilde

    Dear Diet

    In 2014 I made a big decision to change my life. I didn’t like my health so I dieted. I went from 164 to 135 in just a couple of months. Last year I had a series of depressing events that made me gain 10 pounds back. At the beginning of this year I went right back on my diet. I wouldn’t let myself slip back into my old weight or even worse. A lot of my friends and coworkers always asked me what’s my diet plan because I lose weight so quickly? Is it hard? I tell them it depends on the person but I think it simple. Cut out heavy…

    Paint Nite

    How do you feel about Paint Nite? Always love doing things that spark my creative senses. Tipsy painting is always better than regular painting. It was hard to pick paint classes at 1st because my apartment has a nautical theme and couldn’t find paintings with those colors. Then I tapped into my creative spirit and realized when I go to those classes I don’t have to paint in those colors. Below you’ll find a picture of what the painting was supposed to look like. I think it looks the same just different colors. “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” – Marilyn Monroe

    In 2015 I Learned…

    I’d say for about the last two weeks I’ve been trying to come up with a New Year’s resolution. It’s pretty hard for me because I stopped making resolutions for the New Year. I noticed that sometimes I would do it for a little bit and/or just stop. The fact is if I set a goal of me losing 30 pounds and only lost 15 that’s still great resolution moment. I didn’t need a resolution maybe I just need to focus more on my goals. The other day I came across this post that said what “have you learned in 2015”. That made me realize that I fell and maybe…

    Table For Pretty

    Something about seeing my table all done up make me want to cook more. I always look for new ways to reinvent my table while sticking to theme of my apartment. I ❤️ a set table. “A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.” –George Moore

    Happy New Year!!!

    What’s the best thing to do when you have nothing to do on New Year’s Eve? Eat well that’s what I say! This is my last meal of 2015. Mmmmm buffalo chicken strips, spicy salsa, ranch dressing and a biscuit. The ingredients for perfect sandwich. Desert vanilla pudding with Nilla wafers and strawberries. To finish it off a glass of rose with cranberries. I did end the night at my friend’s house , who called me over watch the ball drop. Beware of any enterprise requiring new clothes. – Henry Thoreau

    Pretty Picky Eater

    As a New Yorker I ride the MTA almost everyday. I always have my headsets on because I don’t want to hear crazyness. Last night I forgot my headsets at home forcing me to play my games in silence. I wound up overhearing a conversation of these two girls planning book club meeting Secret Santa party with picky eaters. My friends and I pretty much eat anything and everything. The party hostess in me try to think about what I would do in that type of situation. What would I do if I had someone that was lactose intolerant, someone that loves meat and someone that can’t eat pork and people that…

    Meal Plan/Grocery List

    I used to spend a lot of money on groceries that I never got to use. Sometimes I even buy things already had. I have a new game plan on how to save money and stick to your diet when going to the grocery store. I set up a meal plan and then I look in my kitchen to see if I had all the items for the meal. I also look around the house to see what else I may need. After all it is a grocery list. Now when I go shopping I buy those items and nothing else I don’t get anything that’s on sale. It’s like…
