Over the last year I have become more and more aware of my impact on the world around me. For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to help other people. Growing up whenever anyone would ask why I wanted to do when I grow up I would always say I wanted to be a doctor. When I was asked why, my answer was always that I wanted to help other people. In my very narrow view of the world, I thought the best way to help others was to be a doctor. A profession that I idolized and looked up to.
A few days ago I posted the most personal post I have ever written. In reality it has been a couple of weeks since I finished writing and editing the post and it took me another couple of weeks to finally post it. All in all, it has been a strange few months. Not only because of this news, but because of everything that has been going on.
I know. My trip to Boston (evidenced by my Instagram) was a long time ago (like almost two years ago, eek) and I am just now getting around to talking about it. Well, I really don’t have any excuses other than my life got real busy right after this trip and I put off writing about it. But I loved this trip so much so I am still going to write about it. As I started writing this post, everything came rushing back to me and I have so much to say. So… I am breaking up this post into three different posts or it would be WAY to long!
Happy Friday friends! This has FLOWN by for me. Work has been crazy, I have been focusing a lot on healthy eating and trying to keep in an exercise rhythm. All in all, it has been a full week of self improvement and it is making me feel so much better about myself. Even though it has been a busy week, I am thankful to be busy. Soooo… I thought today I would share some of the things that having been making my life just a little bit better and a little bit easier recently.
Hello again, friends. 2019 is set to be a pretty big year for me. I am getting married. It is the first full year in my job. An exciting trip to the east coast (full disclosure its my honeymoon). And, I am guessing, many fun surprises along the way. Over all, my hope for 2019 is to make small changes that help enhance the things I love in my life and love to do, while decreasing the things that are not good for me and hurting me in the long term. So, lets talk about the goals that will hopefully help make that happen.
Happy Friday everyone! Are you excited for the weekend? I know I am. I have a lot of great posts planned for the next couple of weeks, but I kept thinking of these little random things that I wanted to share. They didn’t really have a place in any of my other posts and couldn’t really stand alone as their own posts. Then I realized, I have these little random thoughts pretty frequently. My brain is filled with little thoughts that could be parts of different blog posts.
So here is my first update after my first official week on the fitness train. All in all it went okay; not great but also not terrible. The week was not the best I could have done, but I am thinking of it as a good start. Overall, the week had ebbs and flows. There were a couple of days where I just felt like a blob (for lack of a better term) and didn’t want to do anything (including cooking). What I decided, is sometimes we have blob days and that is okay. But instead of letting one blob day ruin the whole week, let it mess with that day then bounce back. But lets talk about how things went.
So I realized that I hardly ever post about Memphis, which is pretty ironic because I live here. So I decided I need to start sharing some of my Memphis favorites with you beautiful people. This week we are talking about some of my favorite restaurants, because one of the things I love about Memphis is all of the great places to eat. Now these are all of the places I love to go if I want a good hearty meal, meaning health food is not on the menu… Or it is, but that so isn’t what you should order.
Quick, easy and healthy meals are my favorite type of meals. I also don’t necessarily differentiate what types of food I eat for different meals. For the most part, I have a few meals that I love to make and will eat at any time of the day. A lot of people find that weird and I can’t really argue with them. I have weird eating habits, what can I say? One of my favorite go-to meals that I will eat when ever is a delicious acai bowl. Memphis doesn’t exactly have a large acai bowl market, so after I moved I started making my own. So here goes with my recipe for a yummy acai bowl.
