New Things are Coming!

Hey guys! Long time no talk (or is it “long time no type”? haha).

Hope this finds you well and getting excited for the summer weather that is coming.

I wanted to pop on here to let you know a few new things that will be incorporated onto the blog now.

As some of you who follow my social media accounts know, I just recently started Weight Watchers! I’ve got a goal in mind and a drive that’s powerful to accomplish it.

That’s been the main reason I’ve been MIA on here. It’s taken a little bit to get set up on my new journey. I knew I wanted to do it, but I now have an end goal I wish to accomplish. That goal being to lose weight for a trip with my hubby to Hawaii next year (no not the Big Island, with all the volcano action).

We’ve also had some other big changes in our household with my hubby getting a new job where his schedule is now almost completely opposite to mine and that’s taken a while for me to adjust to. But so far we’re managing.

Coffee has been my BEST FRIEND.

Anyways, back to the main reason I came on here. I wanted to let you guys know what’s been going on, what’s to come and then some.

I’m hoping you’ll join me on this journey. I’m really excited about it.

And even if you don’t join weight watchers or if you don’t care about losing weight, eating healthier can help in more ways than one. So I hope this change also inspires you!

After all, we’re all in this together right??

I plan on sharing many parts of this journey with you. I can share monthly; what my thoughts where on how I think I did, what changes I made, what I did for exercise and of course recipes I’ve come up with or have come to love. I guess basically a Monthly Recap. I’ve been keeping a journal of how I’ve been handling things, my successes and my struggles. It’s also something I can go back and refer to and help motivate myself. If you’d like that, like this post or comment below telling me if you think that’d be something your interested in.

Other than all that, that’s basically it for the changes.

I’m excited for this journey and I hope you are too!
