The Stresses of a 20-Something

Quote of the Day: “Nothing will ruin your twenties more than thinking you should have your life together already.” “Your twenties are the best time of your life.” Have you ever heard this before? I certainly have. When I was in middle school and high school, I would dream of being in my twenties. I thought I would finish college, move to this amazing city, work a big-girl job, be married by 28, have a kid by 29 and yada yada. As I write that out, I’m starting to think I got that “perfect life” idea from a random Hallmark movie… explains a lot. Well,…

Whole30 Week 1 Review

Quote of the Day: “Every time you eat is an opportunity to nourish your body.” So for the New Year, my goal is to get back into healthy eating. In 2020… and 2019, I kind of let myself go a little and ate a lot of ice cream and chocolate and although it was amazing, my clothes didn’t like it too much and my scale didn’t like it either. I decided that in 2021 I was going to attempt the Whole30 diet. The Whole30 diet is an elimination diet where you cut out dairy, grains, alcohol, legumes, and sugar for 30 days and then slowly…

New Year’s Resolutions: 2021

Quote of the Day: “Life’s not about expecting, hoping, and wishing. It’s about doing, being, and becoming.” 2021 is right around the corner! 2021!! Remember when everyone at the end of 2019 was like “2020 the year of clear vision! The best year yet! A new decade!” or something like that? Well, let’s make that 2021 instead of 2020. A new year brings new resolutions. My 2020 resolutions were flushed down the toilet, like I’m sure a lot of people’s were, but I am back and here to make some new ones! Well… I think I will do things a little differently this year. Every…

Reflecting on 2020 + What I’ve Learned

Quote of the day: “Your current situation is giving you an opportunity to re-evaluate what you want.” Officially four days away from 2020, the craziest year of them all. This year has gone by so slowly, yet so quickly at the same time. A part of me feels like March 2020 just happened, but another part of me feels like it was years ago. Anyone else feel the same way? I am so ready for a new year. I personally love the new year and I see it as a fresh start… although some may disagree. I do not, however, see the new year as…
