Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 29

The past couple weeks have cemented the fact that fall is here to stay! The farmers market has been packed with a variety of squash that we’ve certainly been indulging in – delicata are my favorite! I pulled out all of my favorite fall clothes and came to the...

Book Chats: Why Good People Do Bad Things by Debbie Ford

This week I finished up reading Why Good People Do Bad Things by Debbie Ford. I feel like this is a book everyone should read at some point in their lives. The way Ford breaks down the different facades we all tend to hide behind in order to protect...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 27

Yallll! It got cold this week! Like pretty damn cold! So its supposed to get back up into the 80s but I don’t care, I’m taking this as a sign that Fall is here and I may now fully embrace all of myths basic-ness. Last week I said on...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 26

Hey y’all hey! I hope everyone has been having a lovely few last weeks of Summer. I know my spirits have been high as Fall is my favorite season. I’ve been able to wear sweaters and I’ve been using pumpkin spice almond creamer in my coffee. Everything feels right...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 24

I ended week 24 in a rather physically uncomfortable place. I decided to start the Chloe Ting 2 week shred challenge midway through the week and I can say with 100% confidence that my body was not ready. It’s going to probably end up being more like a 3...

Lessons Learned From Gardening This Year

I am by no means of the imagination a master gardener. For me it’s a fun hobby to supplement our groceries during Spring and Summer (maybe a little bit of Fall). As much as I watch the YouTube videos and read the blog posts to prepare each year, once...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 23

This was completely unintentional but I took another weeklong break from my COVID update posts. It’s not my intention to turn this into a bi-weekly series, but it seems that it may shake out that way from time to time. Getting into what life has unfolded over the past...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 21

Hello world! I took a break from blogging last week. I just couldn’t bring myself to write for some reason so I took it as a sign that I needed a brain break. Our garden has finally exploded. I’m harvesting several cucumber a week and I finally was able...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 19

Week 19 is the calm before the storm for our garden. We’ve been slowly harvesting more and more, but I have a feeling the ripe tomatoes are about to go wild. This week I got a few new fitness items in the mail. If you’ve read my blog post...

My Current Fitness Routine & Recent Weight Loss

I want to give forewarning on this post that I am discussing the topics of weight loss, diet, and exercise and that if those topics trigger you in any way you should skip reading this post. When quarantine began back in March, I chose to have a positive outlook...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 18

This past week was really rough. I had my period and when I’m on my period my joints get super loose. Is that normal? I have no idea, but it happens to me and it hits me hardest in my jaw. I can’t keep my jaw in any kind...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 17

Yall! I am going to have home grown veggies soon. Look at those mators in all their glory. I’m really excited for when they day comes that I can harvest something. I know its going to be soon! To be completely honest, the work week is slipping into mundane...
