January 8, NY19 Resolutions Check-In

Today marks the eighth day of the New Year and so the eighth day of working on my 2019 resolutions. So far, so good. I have reached the half-way point in my two week detox. I have not had a cigarette, a drink or a sweet since December 31, 2018. I can't say that it's…

Vegan “Chicken” Noodle Soup

We are now 5 days into the New Year, and I gotta say, I’m pretty proud of myself so far (cue laughter - a whole 5 days - wooo!) But seriously, everything is going just swimmingly. Still no alcohol, smokes or sweets, which is making me feel incredibly good and energized at this point. My…

January 3, NY19 Resolutions: Detox, Walking, Meal-Planning

Today is officially day 3 of working on my New Year’s resolutions. So far, the main challenges have been resolution #1 (keeping up with my blog) and resolution #2 (two week detox).

She would plant gobs of tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, squash, berries, fruit trees and pretty much anything else you…

NY19 Resolution #3: Sustainability // No New Things

NY19 Resolution #2: Two Week Detox

My first New Year’s resolution is fairly simple - post in my blog about my New Year’s resolution 2-3 times per week. My second resolution gets a little bit more challenging. This resolution is something that I think about and truly wonder “why I’m doing this to myself”. Let’s talk a little bit about detox.…

NY19 Resolution #1: Don’t Stop Blogging

The New Year is quickly arriving and I’ve never felt more inspired to make some changes to my everyday life. In the past, I’ve never really been one for New Year’s resolutions, but for some reason this year I feel like incorporating some challenging and some not-so-challenging changes to my overall routine and home life.…
