One Year Later

Word of the Day: Zoonotic (adj.) – a virus that was originally detected in an animal, but is now infecting people also This word seems very fitting for today’s post! Here’s just a little timeline of where we were at last year. March 11, 2020: COVID-19 becomes a pandemic March 12, 2020: sports were cancelled (I went to a Warriors game on January 14, 2020) March 17, 2020: Bay Area restaurants closed for dine-in (take-out only) March 20, 2020: California placed in statewide shelter-in-place To think that it has already been one year is crazy. January 2020 was normal. I remember going to my second…

My Hidden Personality

Word of the Day: Obfuscate (v.) – to confuse someone or obscure the meaning of something Notice something different? I decided instead of a “quote of the day” I would do a “word of the day” to help learn vocabulary. Most of you will probably know the meaning of the words I choose, but my personal vocabulary is lacking, so no judgment. Today, I decided to take a personality test. I do this every once in a while because the results are so interesting and a lot of websites go into detail about what career path would be good, what type of people you probably…

Current Favorites – February 2021

Quote of the Day: “Self love isn’t selfish. It’s important.” It’s been a while since I’ve shared some of my current favorites (or since I’ve blogged). Here are some things I am currently obsessed with or highly recommend for the month of February. Current Favorites Entertainment (TV, Movies, Music): Survivor: I don’t know how I missed out on this my entire life, but I am so glad I was introduced to this show. Thank you Kylie! I am fully hooked and am determined to watch all the seasons. The drama, the competition, the deceitfulness… everything about this show is great. I think my favorite season…

My Whole30-ish Experience

Quote of the Day: “Eat to fuel your body, not to feed your emotions.” 30 days OVER. What an experience. Today I am sharing all about my experience. Why I Decided to Try Whole30As mentioned in previous posts, I decided to try Whole30 for the beginning of 2021 because I wanted to reset my body. I basically spent a whole freaking year indulging myself and eating ice cream and chocolate and nachos and all the bad stuff you can think of. My stomach was happy, but I didn’t feel super great and I definitely didn’t look great. So, it was time for a change. How…

Monthly Goals for February 2021

Quote of the Day: “Don’t give up because you had a bad day, forgive yourself and do better tomorrow.” One month down (well almost) 11 more to go! So far 2021 seems to be okay…what do you think? At the beginning of January, I made a list of goals or “resolutions” I wanted to focus on for that month. How did I do? My biggest goal was to attempt the Whole30 diet. If you are an avid follower of my blog, then you’ve probably read my Whole30 updates and know that I’ve cheated a little bit, but you know, I’ve done a lot better than…
