Welcome!

The intentions of this blog are for me to gain a better understanding of myself, and to explore the ways in which my past have shaped my present. I will share my personal experiences on here, and fill you in on my life journey. Before you read any of my other blogs, I encourage you to take […]

Road to Hana, Pearl Harbor, & More

  This trip has been amazing so far, minus the fact that I have developed a bit of a cold here and am quite congested. On Monday, we decided to have a pool and beach day. The beach at our hotel offers kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and boogie boarding. The rest of my family got […]

Last Day In Cali: First Day in Hawaii

On our last day, Saturday, Michael graduated! Of course, it was like 92 degrees out and the graduation was outdoors. The ceremony was really nice though. Just the students in the majors related to Michael’s major walked that day, so we were only there for about 3 hours. Before the graduation, we got brunch with […]

California: Day 3

Before I talk about what we did today, I have to talk about something that happened last night. As my mom and I were lying in bed sound asleep, my sister was awake on my laptop watching YouTube videos. All of a sudden, she starts screaming at me about an alarm going off in the […]

California: Day 2

Being that NJ is 3 hours ahead of Cali time, we woke up so early this morning. I’m talking before 6 am early. My mom and I went to the gym for a bit to kill some time and when my sister woke up, we went down to the Starbucks in our hotel and got […]

California: Day 1

I have been waiting for this trip for quite some time, and today was the day. This morning, at approximately 5:30 AM, my mom, sister, and I woke up and got dropped off at the airport by my dad. He is coming on Friday. We arrived at the airport about 7 AM meanwhile our flight […]

Don’t Fall for the Fads

  Juice cleanses, tea detoxes, water fasts, weight loss pills, the list goes on. I think just about every day I have heard someone talk about, or seen someone promoting these ridiculous health fads. The truth is, if you ask me, none of this is as healthy as you are being told. I will admit […]

Mother’s Day Weekend

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the wonderful moms out there. There is no way I could ever repay mine for all she has done for me. Moms are very special people, and I think we often take for granted all that they actually do for us. Moms are the ones we cling to when […]

Fitness Myths

  There are a lot of misconceptions that people have about working out and fitness in general. Based on personal experience, I am going to list a few that I know for a fact are just myths. The first thing I want to talk about is targeting fat. A lot of people think that you […]

Setting Some Goals

Long term goals are great to have because they give you something to look forward to, something to work hard towards for an extended period of time, and they give you room to make mistakes along the way. Short terms goals are just as, if not more important than long term ones though. Every once […]

Self-love, the gym, goals, and more

I would say I have a pretty god foundation of knowledge about exercising, and which motions work which muscle and what not. Before we get into my favorite muscle exercises, I want to talk about cardio. Most people hate the boring forms of cardio like running on a treadmill or doing the elliptical etc. If […]
