Pink October 

Hello guys and happy Monday 

I just want to take think time to remind you all that October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is something that is near and dear to my heart because my mom suffers from this disease. 


Breast cancer can affect both men and women. it is the most commonly type of cancer diagnosed in women. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. 

I want you all to have a great October but to also remember that in October we wear pink to bring find a cure and to bring awareness to breast cancer 💗 

Until next time…stay positive! 💖

Green Goodness 


Hello everyone, happy Monday! 

I’ve been trying new, different things since I have started my journey to a healthier me. This green juice, which I like to call Green Goodness is so delicious and easy to make. 

No, I have not gone on a full blown green juice diet but I have been replacing my breakfast with this juice. The benefits of juice give me a great start to my morning and it tastes great. 

Yes! It actually tastes great. Here is the recipe that I used this morning…  

  1. Handful of spring mix greens
  2. Handful of strawberries 
  3. (1) Banana 
  4. (1) Cup of Water 

From my recipe you can can see that I just basically eyeball the ingredients, haha. But you can measure them out if you want. I just go with the flow when making these delicious green juices because they taste great every time I make them and that’s all that really matters, right?  

You can mix and match any kind of fruits and veggies with these juices to your liking. 

If you want, you can head over to Pinterest where you will find many more green recipes to try. 

I like to put my juices in mason jars after I make them and pop them in the fridge until nice and chill. Here’s what it looks like 


Make sure to comment below and let me know if you have ever tried one of these green juices and what are your thoughts on them. 

Until next time… stay positive

That Healthy Lifestyle 

Hello Everyone and Happy Tuesday 🙂

It is almost a year since I had my son and I have been trying to get healthy for about six months now. I have changed my diet and I try to go to the gym at least 3-4 times a weeek. Yes, I said try (haha).  Sometimes when I wake up I would much rather stay home and play with my son then go to the gym to sweat. (I know 🙄) 

So far, I have lost some weight but I am still not where I want to be. Which brings me to my question. Why is getting healthy so hard? Or maybe, it is not hard at all and it is just me. 

I am fine with eating healthy and I don’t mind working out, really I don’t. For me it’s more about staying consistent. I can do good for a week or so and then I just slip back into my old habits. 

I guess I really need to change my outlook and mindset on the whole “getting healthy” thing. Then maybe, I will be able to commit to this journey for more than two weeks. 

Now as I write this, I realize that I really want this for myself and that I need to make the necessary changes in order to see the results that I want to see. I believe doing something, like getting healthy, is a mind thing and if I put my mind to it I can achieve because healthier is better. So with that being said I’m committing to this healthy lifestyle and I’m definitely going to keep you guys posted on my progress. 

Until next time…stay positive
