Caught In Accomplishment

Accomplishing something that we’ve been working on for a while feels pretty great. If I’ve been working on a blog post for a while, finally getting to the end and clicking on Publish feels damn satisfying. And then it’s on to the next project with the intention of getting that same feeling once it’s completed.   […]

Want Black and White? Your Best Bet is Grey…

So, we all want black and white. We want to know exactly how many calories we should eat to lose weight. We want to reach an arbitrary number in our head that will deem us good enough. We want to go to the gym exactly 3.75 times per week, and make sure we get exactly […]

Winter Getting You Down? Why It’s Common and What to Do About It

If you live in the northern hemisphere, it’s winter right now. And while that may not mean cold and snow for everyone, it does mean less sunlight. December 21st was the day with the least amount of sunlight, and while it’s been slowly getting better, spring and summer sure do feel far away right now. […]

Getting Back Into It

Something has shifted for me in 2017, and I’ve been having a bit of an internal battle about it. Although Nick actually saw this battle play out yesterday morning, which must have been so confusing for him at 5am. I’m placing a higher value on the time I have in the morning before work. That […]

4 Ways To Beat The Lunchtime Slump

It’s lunchtime! A break from the daily tasks of work, a chance to rest and recharge. Oh, wait, there’s a new episode of Grey’s Anatomy (yes, I still watch it, don’t judge!), I deserve a break to watch that. And it’s 42min long, just long enough for me to get my lunch and get back […]

Easing Into 2017

I’ve noticed something during the first 1/2 of 2017. It’s been a bit…bumpy. I definitely feel more at peace and like I’m in a much better headspace than I was in 2016. And truth be told, 2016 for me was quite a fantastic year, but it still had more than its fair share of tougher […]

Thinking of those New Year Resolutions? Read This First

2017 officially begins tomorrow! I can’t help but feel a bit excited when a new year is about to begin. I used to get caught up in the pressure of making so many goals and resolutions that I’d wind up having this LONG list of vague and unrealistic goals for the year. Some examples of past […]

Reflections on 2016

2016 is almost over, as in it’s exactly a week away from being December 31st. So, in 8 days, 2016 will officially be a thing of the past. Every year I comment on how fast the year past has come and gone, and while that hasn’t really changed for this year, I’m instead choosing to […]

Want to Crush your Goals? Use These 3 Tips

Christmas is 7 days away. Which means that 2017 is 14 days away. Hard to believe that we are 14 days away from this year coming to an end. I’ve got another post coming that is more of a reflection of 2016 so I’m going to save most of my thoughts on 2016 for that […]

Tasty Tuesday – Cozy Vegan Stew

I seriously made one of the BEST stews last night. It took a bit of prep work, but once everything was in the pot I was able to just leave it and let it simmer. And the best part? Lots of leftovers and it tastes even BETTER the next day!   Butternut squash, sweet potatoes, […]
