How I Faith Plan

For the past 31 days I have been committed to reading the book by Rick Warren, What On Earth Am I Here For. When I first heard of this book it was during a Michael Phelps interview in 2016 about his road to recovery and journey back to the Olympic team. Ever since then I’ve been wanting to read it and I made it a priority at the top of his year.

Here we are at the end of the month and I have 11 more days of reading so I wanted to share my tactic in reading along with updates to my wellness planner.

Wellness Wednesday: In a Rush Lunch

I have been slacking when it comes to meal prepping and just making whatever I have in my house. The key difference is the time spent on meal prep versus the time I spend whipping something together the night before, or in most cases, the morning of. Do I prefer to meal prep? Sure. Is it time consuming? Of course. Still in all, my “rush lunch” does the trick.

Keep Yourself From Burning Out

Life gets busy. It can surely get overwhelming. You may find yourself being pulled this way and that way. You may have a mile long to do list yet you don’t know where to start. Sometimes, that’s just how life is. You’re so busy that you find yourself working around the clock to get things done. With all that hard work, it still feels like you’re behind. You’re still playing catch up. It’s never ending. Say hello to burning yourself out.

Wellness Wednesday | Fitness Journal

Happy first day of Summer 2017. Here in the tri-state we’ve had quite a few heat waves as of late, but Summer is officially here! I’ve been on a roll with my meal prepping and I’m on Day 9 of my daily workout. Yeah, I know, a little over a week. To me, that’s a huge deal as I have embarked on working out consistently before and I would flop within a week. This time I am holding myself accountable by counting each day, doing an intense workout for 30 minutes, and tracking it all in my fitness journal.

Wellness Wednesday | Meal Prep

Meal prepping is something that I began doing for one of two reasons. For one, it was getting entirely too expensive to eat out every day plus I am trying to monitor what I am eating. I watch YouTube videos every now and then of ‘What I Eat in a Day’ and bloggers that meal prep. I draw inspiration from those types of videos, but ultimately it’s a trial and error.

Wellness Wednesday | Trader Joe’s Haul

Welcome to another Wellness Wednesday here on the blog. I wanted to share my journey of adapting to a healthier lifestyle from exercise to completely changing what I eat. I noticed that previously when I’ve taken on a journey such as this, I would be fine for a couple months and fall off, hard. This time I’m taking baby steps. I’m not striving for perfection. I don’t have a particular goal in mind at this moment. I have long term goals, but I’m trying to find what works and really get into a rhythm. In this edition I’ll be  sharing my first ever Trader Joe’s Haul. Nothing major, but worth sharing my experience.

Wellness Wednesday | Starting Over

Cheers to another post here on the blog. I’m definitely getting back into the groove of having a post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, plus getting back to into my series. One series that has been neglected for nearly a year now is Wellness Wednesday. The last edition I had was ‘What I’m Eating’ and before that ‘What’s In My Workout Bag.’ A lot has changed since July of 2016. I’ve been eating a lot more (my anxiety plays a key factor in that) and I’ve changed jobs in which I’m sitting a lot more. With May 2017 in full swing (it’ll be over before we know it), I wanted to start over. Well, not just start over, but change my lifestyle.
