    5 Things I No Longer Buy

    I’ve been making a lot of changes in my life the past few months. If you’ve been following me, you’ll know that last year I went on a budget to pay off my debt. With that, I’ve become more mindful with my purchases and overall consuming less. At first, I quit fast fashion moving towards buying the majority of my clothes second hand. Shopping second hand for clothing has opened my mind to other items from my daily routine that are simply unneeded or aren’t bringing value to my life. And if there is something I’m in need of, there’s usually a selection at the thrift store I can browse…

    4 Things I’ve Learned on My Fitness Journey

    It’s the start of a new year, a popular time to begin a fitness journey. New Year, New Me – am I right? I’ve been on my own personal fitness journey for over four years now. And along the way I’ve learned a lot about exercises and programming, nutrition, and myself as a person. It’s this knowledge that I want to share with others so that they too can find success in their own fitness journey. Fitness is more of a lifestyle now than it is a journey. I love being active and sharing my story with others. As you get started on your journey, it’s important to remember the…

I’m looking for a bag that’s slightly larger than what I have now to better accommodate my clothes and collection of gym accessories I’ve built over the years. Gym accessories are not required for success, but I do have some favorites that I rely on for nearly every workout! If you have a gym membership, then your facility should be providing the majority of what you need to get a workout in. However, sometimes you may prefer having your…

    My 2018 Goals

    Another year has come and gone, so here I am with my 2018 goals. I’ve been sharing my New Year’s resolutions for two years now, and while I may not have always reached those goals I enjoy the idea of having them public for the accountability. It’s also a nice way to have a journal-esque log of what I’ve wanted to do over the years and watch myself grow and change. 2017 has been an experience. I’ve gone through challenging times before, but this past year has come with the most changes, challenges, and growth. I won’t go too into my grievances as I’d much rather focus on the positives…

    Fitness Gift Guide

    It’s the holidays which means it’s gift giving season! In a perfect world, I would have had this gift guide up a bit sooner, but we all know how the month of December goes – holiday parties, dinners, shopping, all while trying to maintain our normal work and gym schedules. All of these picks I personally recommend and own myself as part of my fitness routine. Most of my picks are pretty affordable and also quite basic, but they’re all items that any fitness lover would appreciate in their gym collection. So hopefully this helps anyone that has some last minute shopping to do in the next week or so.…
