Green Smoothie Challenge 2.0

As part of my plan to kick this Chronic Fatigue to the curb I’ll be doing another Green Smoothie challenge, I’ll be using it as a cleanse of sorts. I really enjoyed some of the combinations I was able to come up with the last time I did the challenge. I’ll be posting some of the recipes as I go along, I’ll be doing the challenge for the month of April instead of a week.

I’m excited about this new challenge…there’s no time like the present to get things done. I’m ready to get it done!

14 Days Vegetarian Challenge

I decided to do a personal challenge for 14 days. I picked 14 days because it’s attainable and doesn’t seem like an unreasonable amount of time.

I’m really looking forward to this challenge, it will give me an opportunity to stretch my boundaries of creativity when creating meals and hopefully plan my meals a little better. I started yesterday (February 15) and will finish up at the end of the month. So far I’m two days down and feeling great. I’m not finding it a big challenge to find recipes and meals at this point.

The biggest challenge for me will be the temptation of wanting to eat meat and dairy, I will definitely have to come up with a strategy for this. I’ll be posting my meal plan for the week tomorrow once I finalize it and make the necessary preparations.

31

I’ve been holed up with my thoughts the last little while. Why? Well, it turns out that turning 31 this past Saturday was something that I wasn’t really looking forward to. Generally, I like birthdays, but they seem to be coming so quickly these last few years. I’m officially part of the 31+ crowd, I have to admit that I felt and still do, feel slightly depressed. I don’t know if it’s me getting older or other things that are going on in my life, either way, the feeling sucks.

I really want to move out of this depressive space that I’m in, it’s exhausting, the mood sucks. I need to really get my mojo back, start feeling good about life again and just enjoying everything that it has to offer. This year is supposed to be a big year for me, I have so many things that I want to cross off my list. They say that being in your 30s is supposed to be where you really find yourself and live your life on your terms. Finding myself hasn’t been so easy but I think I’m getting there, I’m sure this slump won’t last much longer. In the mean time, I’ll continue to live the best life possible.

There’s No Time Like the Present

Here we are…at the start of another week. I have so many things to be thankful for!

For this week I’ll be taking advantage of some free time I have to catch up on reading and meditation. I really miss peace in my everyday life. I’ll be taking things really easy this week, re-evaluating my goals and getting ready to finish the year with a bang.

Have a fantastic and productive week!

Stay The Course

Every once in a while it’s becomes so easy to be discouraged, whether it’s my weight loss or starting my business or something else. Every now and then I need a little push to remind me that I need to keep pushing and to stay the course.

I was able to have one of those days today. Being in the process of starting my own business has been trying and stressful. When I see others taking the same initiatives it’s a great reminder that i’m not alone. I’m glad to be in such great company, being in the presence of like minded individuals have reminded me that anything is possible.

Have a happy Saturday…

2014 Is Almost Here…

2014 scares me and it’s not even here yet!

It boggles my mind that 2013 is almost done, it seems like we were just ringing in the new year. The phrase “Time waits for no one” is definitely sounding more real to me this year.

It was a big year for me, I turned 30 and finally made the decision to start my own business. I’m not sure what 2014 will hold for my family and I but I’m looking forward to great things. But for now, I’m just really, really nervous and anxious about it all. I’ll revel in that for a bit as I try to finish off my 2013 goals.

Does Money Really Make You Happy?

This is a question that I ponder often. I think about how my life would be different if I had more money and how it will change when I do. Sure, money can fix many temporary things such as paying overdue bills, or get housing but after that is all said and done, is there still some sort of happiness?

If you’re not happy to begin with how is having money going to make you happy?

Through the different journeys in my life I’ve learned to find happiness in whatever situation I am in. I’m not saying I always do, there are some situations that are so difficult that you just can’t shake it. However, I’ve learned to make the best of things in all my situations.

Sure, having more money will make me a little happier, but it’s not the primary object that determines my happiness.
