2017: Simplify

I'm not one to make resolutions because I never keep them.  But, I keep seeing people in some of my Facebook groups mention having a word for the year instead of a resolution.  I guess, it's sort of like a resolution, but it's meant to be one word that has meaning that you want to focus on for the year. ...more

The problem with resolutions

I've been thinking a lot about resolutions and how I don't make them. Instead, I try to do 100 of something. I am still working out the details of what that will be this year, but in the meantime, I have been thinking about my resistance of resolutions and how they normally get broken....more

Ready for 2015

We are SO ready for 2015!  It has been a very stressful and rough year.  A new business, an unexpected pregnancy, a very touch pregnancy, unexpected hospital stays, A LOT of bullying, stalking and drama caused by someone we all know, a new school for Chase (that took him quite a bit of adjusting), a brand new baby (midnight and 3 AM feedings :/ ) the list goes on and on…...more

Ooops, I Forgot to Write: Sticking to Your Resolutions

It's the third day of January, the day that most people break their resolutions. That first day is easy-peasy, the second day is a little harder, but the third day is when life usually gets in the way, forcing you back towards your old, familiar habits. I was about to say "easier" habits, but the truth is, once you train your mind to get accustomed to a new way of doing things, that new habit can become easy as well. So how do you train yourself to remember to write more? ...more
I just had to go discover what the "stickies function" was! I had no idea that was there! LOLmore

Curing the Holiday Hangover

This year, I am trying a new approach to my overall health and wellness. I want to treat my entire body better- by eating healthier, sleeping more, relieving stress, and working out! It seems like a daunting task and may be a bit vague, but it's better than just..."I want to be healthier in 2014", yeaa how many people are saying that. Most importantly I want to become healthier in a sustainable and realistic way. Although I am starting with a detox, the overall meal plan will be easy to follow the entire year....more
