    Steps I’m taking to be Healthier

    Always trying to stay healthy and here’s what I’ve been doing lately to lose weight and to improve my health. I work a 9am-5pm job, so I haven’t gone to the gym in a while. I plan on going after work now a few times a week or a walk or doing home workouts. I’ve been going on walks during my 30 minute lunch breaks to get some exercise in my day. I have also been wearing my fitness watch to try and reach 5,000 steps in a day which I know isn’t what we should be getting, but I feel if I’m eating healthier and trying I will reach…

    Getting Help for my Insomnia

    Have you ever had trouble sleeping? Imagine having trouble sleeping 5 days a week for a few weeks? Trying to sleep, but not being able to sleep is the most frustrating thing!!!! I have struggled with insomnia throughout my whole life and although I knew about insomnia I never sought out help.

At first I was happy with my purchase believing it was accurate and loved that it would help me. Later I learned it was not accurate so I stopped using it. One of my goals for this year is to take much better…

    My Self Care Routine

    I have been beyond stressed lately with working about 20 hours a week part time and going to school full-time taking 5 classes, 15 units. Having a planner and scheduling can only help so much. I’ve had to devote so much time recently to study and to stay motivated. Now that I’ve got everything under control since my spring break is around the corner, I’ve noticed my self care has not been as big of a priority as it should be. In my free time, I have been watching Hulu and going on walks to be active. Since noticing that I need to do more for myself I came up…

    All Time Favorite Smoothie Recipe!

    I’ve started this year off to accomplish multiple goals! One of them being more health conscious. With that, I have been drinking more smoothies for breakfast. This is my start to completing a goal. When my boyfriend and I started dating, he would make me this smoothie for breakfast after our workout. They are my absolute favorite smoothie! His mom would make them for him and his siblings growing up. That’s where the name “Choco mil” came from, it’s Spanish for chocolate milk. Choco Mil Ingredients: Note this recipe makes 2 servings! Milk Nesquik’s Chocolate Powder mix Banana First, start off with removing the peel from a banana and then…
