Wooden Watches for Women

I’ll be honest, I never used to put a lot of thought into the accessories I used with my outfits. To be frank I never really bothered with them at all. As long as I had a shirt and some pants I was fine. Adding necklaces, watches and bracelets seemed frivolous and unnecessary. What I didn’t realize at the time was that this lack of care wasn’t so much because I didn’t like the items but because I didn’t want to pull attention to myself. I didn’t like myself so why should I bother trying to look pretty? When we started our healthier lifestyle I alsoRead More →

DIY Valentines Day Wreath from the Dollar Tree #Valentinesday #DIY #Crafts #dollartree #dollarstore #DIYValentinesdecor

I love holidays. Not only are they great for family bonding and spending time together but they give me an excuse to craft. And visit the Dollar Tree. Not sure which one I love more, to be honest! Since starting this blog the monthly Dollar Tree craft has become one of my favorite features to write and this DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath is no exception. I’ve found that spending time doing something creative a few times a month is the perfect way to relax. Sometimes it’s nice to just sit down and create something beautiful. As a neat side effect, I have also discovered that beingRead More →

Keto Chocolate Bars from Kiss My Keto

I might have committed to a Keto lifestyle last year but I fully admit to being a full-fledged chocolate lover. Don’t get me wrong, the benefits of my new way of eating fully outweigh my desire for a chocolate bar but every now and then I do miss them! That’s pretty normal I think, my husband admits to missing potatoes so we all have our weaknesses. To combat his potato cravings we substitute with cauliflower which tends to work pretty well. To combat my chocolate cravings? I’ve tried many things and while I’ve found some decent substitutes I’m always willing to try some new ones.Read More →

Types of Yoga

While I do my yoga in the comfort of my own home (Doggy partner optional but highly recommended for some laughs) I have looked into joining a class once or twice. It seemed like it might be a good idea to get at least a little bit of help with some of the forms! However, I was always a bit stumped when I found out that ‘yoga’ was basically a catch-all phrase for a lot of very different types of exercise. In the end, I just kept following my FabFitFun TV & youtube yoga for beginners and yoga for runner videos but someday I wouldn’t mind signingRead More →

Keto stuffed Bell Peppers

Stuffed bell peppers have been a family favorite for a couple of years now! They are super easy to make, which makes them perfect for busy nights. But! Even better they are highly customizable which means they can be adjusted to fit the tastes of almost any family. Bell peppers are my favorite peppers, they are packed with flavor but lack the heat found in other peppers. I have never been a big fan of hot or spicy foods! Thankfully even after we turned to the Keto way of eating we were able to continue enjoying this family favorite with only a few simple adjustments.Read More →

FabFitFun Winter Box review

This winter box marks a full year of subscribing to FabFitFun! I have to admit that the anticipation of waiting for each new box never diminished. Although I haven’t ended up a giant fan of every product I received I have enjoyed giving them all a try. Most of these are items I never would have bought on my own. not because I didn’t want them but because, despite all my best efforts, I still have trouble indulging in products just for me. This FabFitFun winter box was no exception! It was filled with wonderfully warm and cozy items that were perfect for the seasonRead More →

Keto Drinks, Celebratory cocktails

Two people running in the woods

Starting a new hobby can be overwhelming. It’s easy to feel frustrated and unsure when you are faced with a lot of information about a subject your just starting to learn. Running is no different! Although running seems like a simple hobby to take part in, its very easy to fall down the rabbit hole of training plans, running gear and fitness studies with a few ‘how to get started running’ google searches. I know that I felt overwhelmed when I got started. I mean, did I really need to know my target aerobic heart rate right off the bat? How about learning what aRead More →

Keto Jello Cookies

There is something about holidays that just bring out my desire for cookies. It probably has something to do with a childhood spent baking with my mom. When my husband and I started following a Keto diet in order to lose some weight and start living a healthier lifestyle our cookie recipes needed a bit of a makeover. Thankfully these keto jello cookies are not only very simple to make but can be customized to fit practically any holiday or event! If there is one thing better then a great tasting cookie, it’s a great tasting cookie that can be altered to fit whatever myRead More →

Top 5 Reasons to start running in the New Year, trail running picture

With New Year’s approaching a lot of people are starting to consider changes to their lifestyles. While there’s no bad time to start living a healthy lifestyle or consider a healthier way of eating the tradition of creating New Year’s resolutions seems to create a general uptick in these changes. While my family and I started Keto and hiking/running before New Year’s last year, I did make continuing this lifestyle one of my resolutions. I’m pretty happy to say I have kept up with that goal and as a result, I have felt better about myself this past year than I ever have before. IfRead More →
