Welcome

Hello! Thank you for visiting today. I am a wife and mom, and someone who is on a journey to become a better person. Not only for myself, but for my family as well. I am looking to improve not only my diet and exercise, but eliminate bad habits, improve my people skills, become more self-sufficient and more!

Self Sufficiency

Sometimes it can be frustrating to not know how to do something that is critical to your life. These are posts where I try to learn all about what I need to take care of myself and my family

Food Control

My posts about controlling my eating habits and learning how to manage my diet better.

Stress Management

I struggle with controlling my stress and panic attacks. Here are my posts that deal with keeping my stress in check so I can be a happy mommy!

  • Setting out on a Self-Improvement Journey

    It is the same thing that has happened to countless others. It has different looks and forms, but the root is the same: stagnancy.

    I started this blog less than a month ago. I started it so I could have a place to post my progress with my self improvement journey. I figured if I had a place to put down my progress, it would help hold me accountable to my goals. I honestly didn’t think though that anyone… Read more

    Note: While reading this, please keep in mind cooking is not my friend. I could burn almost anything, and trying to season things does not usually work well for me. This was an attempt to fix that with mixed results. 🙂 The other day, I was in the grocery store and passed a freezer chest… Read more

    I have always had a sweet tooth. However, it has only been in recent years that the single sweet tooth has developed into a sweet mouth. I believe it came from stress. I started using sugar as a way to deal with the stress of my job. I don’t think I was aware of it… Read more
