Learn to Say No and Stick With It

If it’s not a Hell Yes, It’s a No!  My favorite line from a Bloggy Boot Camp conference I attended in Charlotte three years ago.  I reflect on the declaration often and decided to make it the topic for today.  Even though I have mastered the art of saying no, I have to continue to work at it.  It is especially of importance since I’ve been commuting to work for the last nine months.  You may have had a lifestyle change that doesn’t permit you to do all the things you did before.  If so, I am here to encourage that it is perfectly fine to say N.O.!

How to Treat Side Bae: At Home Work Out Tips

It’s a new year and for some of you, a brand new day! Through out life, major milestones require us to switch up our routines. Some of those routines can have us floating on cloud nine rocking this journey of life to the fullest.  Yet and still, when change happens, we are forced to adapt that routine.   Working out is not always going to be your TOP priority, however, we can aim to keep it pretty high so that when change occurs, we find new ways to continuously move our bodies!

My favorite form of working out is group fitness classes! I think you new that considering I write a whole blog about it!  However, last year I took a position in my company that requires me to commute to work and decreases the amount of time and energy I have through out the week to devote to going to the gym.  I was forced to start doing some workouts at home.

I am here to encourage that you too can modify your normal routine and do some activities at home.  This isn’t the easiest task, but when you consider the alternative which is NOT working out at all, this becomes slightly attractive.  You may feel like you are cheating on your trainer, group fitness instructor, running group etc., but in the fitness relationship ONLY, you actually get permission to have a side bae!  I’m hoping to help you treat them right 😉 !

Good Selfishness Will Allow You to Make Time For Your Hobbies

When I was a little girl, my mother took me to the library every week in the summer to switch out books.  I am not sure when the transition from parenting to flat out falling in love happened.  Somewhere along the way, reading became my favorite past time.  It was there long before I thought about bouncing a basketball and it has stood the test of time past the collegiate basketball years.   My reading has evolved since I was an adolescent.  I still read fiction novels, but as a collegiate and young adult, I grew more interested in non-fiction books and magazines, and then a few years ago, I fell heavily for blogs.  I also love to see creative writing displayed in programmed T.V., movies, and plays.  I am all about the art of writing.

Immediately, when I got out of pharmacy school, I was invited to join a book club, SWEET. It ended 🙁 .  Then I was invited to join another book club, YES.  It ended 🙁 .  Then I decided to create my own Book Club 😉 ! My experience with the former clubs led me to a few conclusions.

One Word for 2014: BALANCE

I switched up my previously scheduled post for today because the one word resolution posts I kept reading resonated with me so strongly that I had to participate. I first read Carli’s post, then Kim’s post, which lead me over to my girl Michelle’s link up!

Those of you who are bloggers and have already posted are probably quite aware of my one word by now as I keep mentioning it in the comments.
One Word for 2014 Balance

balance – a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions.
