I have been training myself and my body to slowly incorporate healthy habits into my everyday life. It isn’t always easy as I forget or get busy sometimes but I really do try for the most part. I wanted to share 3 healthy habits that I’m working on currently and 3 that I would love to add soon.
Healthy habits I’m currently working on:
Limiting only 1 to 2 cups of coffee intake per day.
With everything going on I knew that I wouldn’t eat as healthy or as good as I would like so I decided to get back into intermittent fasting. I challenged myself to do a 100 day fasting challenge and to aim for 16/8. Today is day 11 and so far I’ve done good, there’s only been 2 days where I didn’t reach 16 hours and that is really ok. I did notice that 2 days that I didn’t reach 16 hours was because I ate past 7 pm the night before. For example last night my brothers girlfriend bought her new puppy to our house so I was distracted and played with the puppy for a while and by the time I got to eat it was closer to 7/7:30 so I didn’t finish eating till 8 pm so for it to be 16 hours I had to fast till noon today and that’s hard for me since I’m awake and working so early. I woke up this morning and was starving so bad so I waited it out for a bit took a shower and I was still hungry even after drinking water so I gave it and had breakfast so I only fasted for about 11.5 hours and really that’s ok! I’ll try better today by trying to finish eating by 6:30 or 7pm the latest tonight. I’m going to share my results here! I’m hoping this helps me shed a few pounds since I’m such a bad stress eater and like everyone else right now I’m under a lot of stress with what’s going on in the world. As far as exercise goes I’ve been trying to go on 2 long walks with my nanny kids a day and if we can’t then I have an elliptical at home that I’ll end up using after I’m off for about half an hour to an hour.
How are you handling the stress? Are you still keeping up with healthy eating and exercising?

Happy New Year!!! I cannot believe that 2018 is over; it went by so so so quick. 2018 was an ok year for me, it wasn’t the best but it wasn’t the worst either; however, I am hoping to make 2019 my best year yet!
Every year I make new year resolutions and I never ever stick to it; well this year I really want to make goals rather than resolutions and I am going to try my hardest to stick to it and reach my goals.
Here are some of my goals for 2019:
Live a healthier lifestyle by drinking more water, exercising at least 3 to 4 times a week, and eating healthier.
Try to control and get rid of my OCD as much as possible; my OCD has gotten so bad in the last year with making sure everything is locked and that my alarms are on, etc. It is really really affecting me and I want to change it once and for all.m
Care less about what people think. I am so sensitive, emotional and such a people pleaser and I hate it…
Read at least one book a month, I have so many books that I have bought and haven’t read yet so my goal is to read more and hopefully blog about it.
Practice photography and become more comfortable with manual setting rather than automatic.
Become more confident.
Be more positive.
Save more money and to stop spending on stuff that we don’t really need.
Cook and bake more (especially healthy options) and share here on the blog.
Be more in the moment especially with my husband; for example, putting our phones away at least for an hour or so and spending quality time together.
Be more active on social media and blogging by commenting on other’s posts and interacting with others more.
