But I've tried to stay consistent with fitness and eating healthy since I know when I am active and nourished well, my mind is more calm.I try to implement a two day max rule; if I go with more than two days without working out, … Continue reading Consistency.
This week, my mood got a little better. So did my energy. It was just too hot and muggy last week. I meant to do a recap of week four of our "no spend month," but I just didn't have the energy. Between prepping for my daughter's birthday party and a mini trip, not to mention … Continue reading No Spend Month Recap.
