I don’t talk about this very much, but my heart is not only in health and fitness; it’s also in freight. Yep, you heard me right: freight. Pallets and forklifts and 53’ vans, oh my. Have you ever wondered why I talk like a trucker? Ha! I actually try to keep that part of me… Continue reading Fun Fact Friday – FT Job Edition
Hey guys! New meal prep for the day! I will warn you, you're going to need to season this or have some oil-based dressing. I didn't season anything other than a little bit of pepper, and it's going to be bland. But I started watching Life Sentence on Netflix and was more worried about that… Continue reading Meal Prep Sunday: Lazy Edition
I never thought I'd hear myself say that. My company is working with a company called Healthy Wage to host a healthy weight loss challenge. You pay $70.00 and, if you lose 10% of your body weight, you get your money back. I really wanted to join, didn't at all want to pay the $70.00,… Continue reading Sunday’s are for… the gym?
Hey everyone! I just wanted to drop in and write about the charity bike ride I went on today! I have volunteered at the ARL a couple of times, but this time I was an attendee! If you're familiar with the Des Moines area, you probably know the bike trail well. We started at Mad… Continue reading Pedal for Paws
When I first moved in with my boyfriend, I felt like I no longer had a place. I felt like everything in our apartment was his; all I had was a bathroom and my bookshelves. Did I blame him at first? Absolutely. Was it his fault? Absolutely not. He had lived by himself for something… Continue reading Words are pure magic.
I feel lucky, every single day, to be where I am right now. We all have a past. I have demons; I have skeletons in my closet. Some of the people I chose to let in to my life, and some of the choices I made... I could have been given less of a chance… Continue reading There was always a light.
To the one who has taught me all of the most important things in life, like how to make homemade mac & cheese, and that I can always say “Sorry, my mom said no” when I don’t want to do something... Even at 25, I’m still using that one. She taught me that what may… Continue reading Here’s to you, Mom.
Stumbling through my closet, tripping on shoes and dirty laundry, digging for something, anything, to wear to a multi-occasion night. I needed something that was BBQ appropriate as well as bar appropriate; I needed a daytime shirt that could be "night out" shirt as well. Floral is always a go-to for me. How about you?… Continue reading Floral shirts are best on rainy days.
The first bike rides of the season took place this weekend. Finally! I've been waiting and waiting for it to be nice enough. We were planning on biking to the Valley Junction Farmer's Market last Thursday, but, of course, we got the worst thunderstorm of the season. Funnel clouds, winds up to 30 mph, rain,… Continue reading The plasma donation and the 30 mile bike ride.
I almost pass out a lot. Like, a lot. Probably once a month, and it's different every time. Once a month may not sound like a "very often" thing... until it's happening to you, and all you can think is "Not again, not again." I don't know why it happens. I haven't been able to… Continue reading
