This year, 2019, is the 10th anniversary of the year I graduated high school. In fact, I just got a message on Facebook asking that I RSVP by August 1st so they can start finalizing venue options.
This is important information, because the personal evolution that has taken place in the last 10 years is incredible, both in size and the ways in which I have grown as a person.
**Just a warning, this is a pretty lengthy post. Read at your own risk.**

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’m back (for now) and I thought it was a good time to do a post about activewear for summer. It’s not officially summer yet, but it’s getting there.
Even if you exercise indoors, it still sucks to be going to the gym in a big shirt and long leggings. One of my favorite parts about working out during the fall and winter (and spring usually too) is the nice blast of cool air when you walk outside. Unfortunately, working out in summer is just going from hot to hotter.
I have feelings about summer. You all should know this by now.
Anyway, I’ve compiled a pretty good collection of summer activewear ideas to help keep you going even when you sweat more just walking inside before your workout even begins. Continue reading “Plus Size Activewear for Summer”
I love the feeling of having meals prepped for the week. It feels like I finally have my shit together. But what I don’t love is the effort it takes to actually do the prepping. It’s not hard, per se, but I have a hard time convincing myself to do both the weekly shopping and the cooking on the same day.
It’s pure laziness. 😉

Recently I had a conversation with my good friend Laura about doing things with intent – making things happen instead of letting it happen to you. It came up because we were talking about how excited I was to be able to pick out what clothes I get to wear to work at my new job instead of having to wear a uniform, whitening my teeth because I’ve been embarrassed by the color, and meal prepping so I’m ready for the week. We talked about being a “girl boss” and “getting our lives together” and how exciting the prospect is.
But the idea of intentional choices and living life on purpose has intrigued me more and more lately. Continue reading “Living with Intent”
In my last post, I mentioned looking for a new job, and I’m happy to announce that I’ve found one! Yay! I won’t say where for, ya know, privacy reasons, but it’s a company for which I’m very excited to work.
It’s also a typical “9-5” type job at a desk, inside an office building, and the type of work I will be doing is “support staff”/administrative type work.
Honestly, I. Am. PUMPED about it. And I feel like that’s kind of a far-cry from the “hustler” and “boss lady” mentality that has all but consumed our (the millennial) generation. But that works for me. And it’s okay if you’re more partial to it, too. Continue reading ““The Hustle” Isn’t for Everyone… And That’s Okay”
