When I started going to the gym full time, I was completely hooked. I could go every day of the week without feeling like I needed a break. There was never any struggle; I would just get up and go. But over the years I started to realize that my body was changing, but my routine wasn’t. And sooner or later, it caught up to me… Continue reading “Basic Equipment To Start Your At-Home Gym”
Good Morning lovelies, and Happy Monday! I’ve been very on and off with this blog over the past few months, so I apologize for the sporadic posts. Truth is, a lot has been happening over here, and it’s just too difficult to keep up. From getting engaged and planning a wedding, to juggling my fairly new career, to working towards buying a house (YES, that’s right!) I’ve been spread pretty thin. But as I settle in and get used to my ever-changing routine, I can’t help but think of how much I love this blog. I love writing and sharing ideas, and reading the amazing blogs created by all of you! It has been such a great outlet for me, and I’m trying to find my way back to it.
What’s been going on around here:
I was never one of those girls that planned her wedding at an early age. I didn’t have any wedding scrap books and I didn’t daydream about my big day. I thought about it from time to time, but I had too many ideas to make a solid plan. But when Kyle proposed, I dove in head first, ready to plan our wedding for September of 2017, even though we had just gotten engaged at the end of December. We’ve been together for a long time, so I was more than ready to get the marriage part started. But things certainly didn’t go as planned..

I’m sure we’ve all been there. That moment where you open your refrigerator or pantry door for the 10th time to stare at the shelves full of food. You sift through the drawers and shuffle things out of the way, but you can’t find anything you want. There’s tons of options, but nothing seems appealing. I go through this process far more often then I want to admit. I’m always looking for the 1 snack that I don’t have, which leads to a trip to the grocery store where I’m surround by unhealthy options.

Hello lovelies! I hope you all had a productive weekend. I spent my weekend doing the usual wedding planning, and I’m more than happy to take a break at this point. It’s been a long few days of writing out guests lists, researching centerpiece ideas, and worst of all, budgeting. It may sound like fun to some, but it’s been a bit overwhelming lately. It’s hard to imagine our big day coming together when it’s still in pieces. So all the stress has made my fitness routine even more important to me. Continue reading “My Fitness Journey: Week 2-4”
Hello and Happy Monday! I’ve always been a fan of Mondays for a lot of reasons. It’s the perfect day to start something new, and it’s almost always the most productive day of my week. I’m not at a point in my life where I dread Mondays, and I really hope I never get there. Continue reading “My Fitness Journey: Week One”
One of my favorite things about the holidays are the decorations. I love driving through our neighborhood and seeing all the pretty lights, the giant blow-up snowmen, and the wreaths on every door. New England is a very Christmassy place this time of year (the massive amount of snow doesn’t hurt) and everyone gets in the spirit pretty quickly around here.

Among all Americans, there are certain days that we hold very close. Some are in celebration, while others are in mourning. We celebrate the many milestones and achievements, as well as the obstacles that once stood in our way. We celebrate the birth of our nation, and we also mourn for the days in history where a piece of that nation was destroyed. Continue reading “R.E.D. Friday: What It’s Really All About”
My least favorite part of the holidays is coming soon: Resolution Season. I call it a season because unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to last. We’ve all struggled with making the big changes, and more importantly, keeping them.
But why do we wait until January to change? Why not do it now, during the busiest and most challenging time of year, so that we know we can truly take on anything? Here are some things you can change today! Continue reading “Leading A Healthier Lifestyle: What You Can Change Today”
The holiday season is my absolute favorite time of year. From the decorations, to the parties, it’s hard not to become completely immersed in all of it. But the holidays can actually be a very stressful time for many. In past years, it’s been a struggle to stay on track with my fitness goals. I always promised myself that I would swear off the cookies and candies, but a few family and company parties later, I would always throw those promises out the window.
