Eat Good, Feel Good

Most women don’t realize that just as men treat their bodies through shakes, chicken, and lifting, women need to do the same. Obviously I’m not eating everything in my path :p, but I do choose to stay on the healthy side of things and nurture my body as much as possible even with William by my side. So I have decided to share a few of my tips that women could be using to stay healthy and fit on a daily basis.

Women love to work cardio which is great, because I personally think that it’s a great way to stay fit and healthy, however don’t forget to tone also by squats, mini weights, or even adding some push ups to your routine. It will only help your body, because unlike men, women physically cannot gain the same amount of muscle mass naturally so you don’t need to worry about “bulking up”. Secondly, add a post workout meal or shake after your workout. It can be the big difference makers on whether you get the body you have been waiting for. Several stores have cheap shakes for women, and if you still are hesitant about it then at least think to eat a meal packed with nutrition. I personally enjoy an avocado and salsa after a workout, which does wonders! Lastly, always remember to eat. I know a lot of my friends work on a daily basis, and I know it might be hard or seem right to skip a meal, although there is no excuse. Making sure your body stays fed is one of the best ways to stay healthy. Just make sure you’re being healthy about it.

And there you have it, a quick simple education on ways you can stay healthy and reach some possible goals. Seriously look to take some of these into account for the next time you workout. I think it could make all the difference! 🙂

Project Time

I feel as though a house project is way over due in my home. I haven’t decided what color I want to do, but I do know that I want to paint one of the walls in my house! Out of all the colors that make me smile, I think that I want to paint a light peach color. It has the possibility of complimenting several of my rooms, which excites me!

I think the project will not only help me but also William and Sheba alike. It can also help me to teach William some new skills about being a handyman for the future (I always enjoy preparing him for his future)!

I was taught by my father several ways to do chores around the house, which several of my friends are startled by. But it’s because I had no easy upbringing which has helped shape who I ‘am today J.  Gosh, I’m excited to be able to have fun with this and share some laughs with my lovies.  Watch out handymen, Shaye Walsh is showing you a trick or two :). Feel free to post about any projects you’er up to or color ideas!

You’re Cordially Invited

Isn’t that just the best feeling in the world when you get a letter in the mail from a long time girlfriend and its informing you that she’s getting married! I just get ecstatic about it. Knowing you get to take part in a wedding is always an awesome feeling. I personally don’t just enjoy the fun that it brings, but the true reason for it, love… Yes, I know I’m a single mother, but love is something so adorable, and cute. It needs to be cherished with the utmost respect. I think I’m going to have to watch the notebook tonight after seeing this (you can’t tell me that is a bad movie, Ryan Gosling is in it!).

I also get to show off my prize possession William! He always looks adorable when he gets dressed up in a suit. My man of armor I call him. Ah, I just thought I should share with others the news!

The only thing I need to think of now is how to plan for this occasion. This is when budgeting becomes key! I know with my fantastic skills however, that I can do this! A wedding weekend is no light expense, but if you stay ahead and know early then anyone can do it!

Tootles!
