This post is going to pretty much be a mash up of everything on my mind right now AKA: To do list.

I want to start off by saying that I feel like I need to find a rhythm with my posts, this way I am motivated to work...werk ;) meaning, post more regularly. So here is the rundown:

Monday’s: Weekend round-up
Tuesdays and/or Wednesday’s: School
Thursday’s and/ or Fridays: Health/fitness update

In regards to Thursday and/or Fridays posts: Ok, here we go.  So, lately I have not been very happy with my body.  Just, overall health and aesthetics. I no longer feel at home or comfortable in my body. Part of this is because of the fatigue I am battling and the other part is because while I was on a steady dose of Lyrica (I've been off of it for over a month), I slowly but surely gained weight. Not tons of weight, it is probably not very noticeable to other people. My clothes just do not fit the way they used to and I am never happy about going shopping or getting dressed up.  But that is about to change!

I have been moderately active for a while, but I have not made enough time to be as active as I want. HELLO! See the problem, I WANT to be more active, but I don’t make enough time for it. I follow many health/fitness accounts on Instagram and bloglovin, and I am like, “wow that exercise looks cool”…all while lying in bed or whatever. But now it is time for me to make time for me! I have decided to hire Jessica over at to be my online trainer! Super excited and stoked to have someone to hold me accountable and push me to reach my goals. Plus, she is pretty amazing! I have been following her on insta for a while now and I LOVE her blog. Check her out!

 As far as nutrition goes, I am pretty smart about what I should and should not eat. Also, I am pretty good at having self control when it comes to the bad (oh so good) things I love to eat, like French fries! So with combining the clean eating and regular exercise, I should definitely get me back to feeling like me!
In regards to Tuesdays and/or Wednesday’s posts:  I am the BIGGEST procrastinator! And I truly, genuinely, absolutely, without a doubt, want to stop it! I need to go to meetings or something ;) So maybe blogging about it will help me stay on top of my homework throughout the week!

As for Monday’s, well that is pretty self explanatory in the title! I want to spend more dedicated time to hobbies/fun on the weekends. I need to devote time to learning how to use my camera as well. 

I feel like there are so many other goals I should right down, but honestly the ones above are pretty major. Eat right, exercise more, do my homework/studying earlier in the week.

What goals are you working on right now?

So, I finally did it. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology! I do not actually attain my degree until the end of August when I finish up my last requirements but STILLLL it is so exciting!

So rewind back to Saturday (5/3), I woke up feeling like a million bucks. I was overwhelmed with feelings of pride and accomplishment. However, as the morning progressed I began to feel a little saddened and everything was bittersweet. You see, my father looked forward to this day. He wanted so badly, to see me graduate college. When he passed away, graduating and other life milestones lost value in my eyes for a little bit. I wanted him to be with me on that day, to see me walk across the stage. As I began to feel more and more low, I realized he was with me. He is with me.

The ceremony was lovely, and I am proud of myself-which is a new feeling for me to explore {pride}.
