On Consistency

Why I struggle with consistency even though I think it’s important, why consistency matters, what it looks like for me, and what it could look like for you.

On Going Live Every Day

“But… you hate live videos. Remember?” Yes. I remember. I even made a couple of them a few years ago for the sake of mocking them. True story. Funny thing was, when I did those, a few people told me, “You should do this all the time!” Granted, those people are crazy. But still… It

On Reflection and Resolution

It’s January 15th. The perfect day for a New Year blog. Right? I like to start out my year sometime in the first week of January. Why? Because January 1 is a holiday. It’s a day for sleeping in, watching football, eating appetizers all day, and wishing people the best in their hopes and dreams

On October’s Challenge

Can you guess what excites me most about October’s challenge? If you said, “The fact that September’s challenge is almost over,” you’d be right! I have HATED running! But I’ve stuck with it, and I think I’m a little better at it than I was a month ago. And I’m a little skinnier, too. My

On Prepping Freezer Meals

This article includes affiliate links. I think. If they work, and you click them and buy something, I might make a little money. I’ve never done this before so I don’t know for sure. A few weeks ago, Marie McGinnis posted in a FB group I’m in, asking for bloggers to make some meals and
