21 Day FIX


Let’s get healthy!!



be HAPPIER in your HOME

5 Apr

It’s a Saturday afternoon, and normally I would running around crazy getting errands in or just spending time with my family. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to be doing those things, or maybe I’ll do one or two later on, but for now, I’m enjoying me time. With all of our crazy lifestyles and schedules, you need to take time for yourself and not feel guilty of it. And believe it or not, it all starts in your home.

When I am stressed or in a state of anxiousness, making my home clutter free is not on the top of my list. I like to say I have “organized chaos”. I’m sure I’m not the only one on this! However, I do realize that when my home is is clutter free or even organized I feel better. I’ve been in a funk lately and the simple of act of making my bed had become a chore.

Something came over me the other day, and as soon as I got up, I made my bed and straightened out my bedroom. I can’t even describe the relief I felt. It’s like my bedroom felt different. Sometimes, it’s a simple act of making our bed that can help our day get that much better.

So on this relaxing Saturday, I started with making my bed, folding some laundry (which I also loathe but feel better after I do it) and did some reading. I’m going to make it a point to follow this 10 simple rules to be happier in my home. And if you’re like me and need a boost or a little motivation, this post I came across is for you.

It will make your life and home a whole lot better. I promise!

be HAPPIER in your HOME

Keep it simple and relax!!


Time to make a healthy choice

10 Mar

It’s almost springtime and it’s time to get thinking of skirts, tank tops and bikinis. I’ve recently decided to make a life change with the help from my coach and I am now following in her footsteps. In an effort to not only motivate myself, but help others in their health and fitness journey, I have become a Beachbody Coach. To kick start this new journey of my life, I’m going to be running a 30 day Shakeology Challenge.

Day 19~ 5 Blogs I read on a daily basis

21 Mar

blog quoteIt’s day 21 and I’m a little behind the eight ball. My life has been so crazy I haven’t had a chance to even enjoy being on my computer. For day 19, I’m supposed to list 5 blogs that I read on a daily basis. I have to admit, I don’t have to time to even check my email throughout the day if I’m lucky, let alone read my favorite blogs. But I will say, when I do come home and finally relax (after attending a meeting, grad class or tutoring) I have some favorite sites that do go to daily.

The Single Woman ~ Seriously one of my favorite sites. Mandy Hale started this blog a little over three years ago and has become a huge inspiration to us “single” women, or women in general. My friends tell me I am the RI version of her and I take that as a compliment. Her daily quotes and blog posts are straight forward, witty, wise and inspirational. She gives me hope and reminds me that I am good enough, to never settle for anything less than the best for you and believe that there is love out there for everyone.

LaurenConrad.com ~ I love getting my daily emails from Lauren’s site and reading her blog on the latest fashion trends. I also have her on my Google homepage so I have easy access to it.

Karen Salmansohn ~ I love going to this blog for daily quotes and inspiration. It’s a site for people who like “self-help” books and articles but don’t want to be caught in that aisle at Barnes & Noble.

The Mod Mommy ~ This is my sister’s blog. I also have this on my Google homepage. Just because she’s my sister and the fact that I’m not a mom, it’s a blog that I love to read. She has great tips for moms (which I pass on to my friends who are), recipes and more.

Love the Leap ~ This is my friend Erica’s blog. She has great tips and advice on how to start getting healthy or learning how to stay healthy with recipes, workouts, and tips. She was my motivator and continues to be for me. I needed a push to begin working out again and I owe it all to her.

What are some blogs you like to read? 

I am always looking for new ones to check out!
