Tips Sticking To The New Year's Resolution Of A Healthier You

Eating healthy and developing a workout routine is not about losing weight, it is about eating foods that make you feel fresh, clean and energized and workout your body to make you stronger.

Tips Sticking To The New Year's Resolution Of A Healthier You

Okay, everyone has the Resolution of losing weight, eating clean, cook at home more, developing a workout routine, etc. None of that is bad and I encourage you to do whatever it takes to be confident in your own skin. Below are some tips and guidelines that has aided me and made this road to a healthy lifestyle!


Develop meal plans, take the time to meal prep, and have a grocery list; That gives me the motivation to cook at home instead of eating out which usually leads to picking up something fast and unhealthy.

One of my favorite go-to meals that I have been loving lately is a healthier version of chicken salad.

Shredded chicken
Plain Greek Yogurt
Sliced Celery
Cubed Apple slices
Chopped onion
Cranberries or Raisins or even both!
Cumin and grounded Ginger seasoning

Saute' onions and celery with salt and pepper to taste. After both onions and celery are to the consistency you desire, add shredded chicken with a sprinkle of ginger and cumin seasoning and cook all ingredients.
In a separate bowl mix cubed apples, yogurt together, and cranberries. This is optional, but to add a sweet spark to it, you can add a squirt of your favorite dressing in with the apples and yogurt.
NOW, mix everything together and there is your delicious yet healthy meal!

Number one commandment: NEVER GO GROCERY SHOPPING WHILE HUNGRY. That is a common topic among a healthy lifestyle; I have experienced for myself to know it is true. When you go grocery shopping while hungry, your mind is going to dart to something fast and easy which most times are chips, comfort food, etc; basically, everything that defeats your eating clean goa

Philippians 4:13
"I can do all this through him who gives me strength."

Last but not least.. have fun!!

Go workout with a friend, boyfriend/girlfriend, family member, roommate, etc. Start a workout group or a group message and just give each other encourage and learn from each other when it gets hard! Have fun cooking at home and explore creative, colorful and delicious recipes!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
