Wellness Wednesday

Wellness Wednesday: Strawberry Oatmeal

Hey Girls!

Sorry I’ve been MIA, between work and taking care of my health my free time has been less and less. Thankfully this is my last week of work and although I will miss the girls so much it will be nice to focus on my health. Since I’ve been working it’s been challenging to find time to relax and focus on me. I also have not worked out at all the past few weeks and that is a big no no for me. Not only do I feel better when I work out, the doctors want me to workout. I start Lauren Gleisberg fall challenge next week and I could not be more excited. I bought a home gym bench and have my workout area ready to go.

Anyway, for today’s Wellness Wednesday post I’m posting my go-to breakfast I have been loving. Not only is it healthy, it seriously taste like dessert and is so easy to make.

  • Combine a pack of instant plain oatmeal with 1/4 C water and 1/2 C. strawberries
  • Mix ingredients together
  • Cook in microwave for total of 3 minutes stopping every 45 seconds to mix.

Girls I’m so in love with this breakfast, plus it’s giving me all the fall vibes. 🍁

New Years Eve

It’s a beautiful day here in South Carolina and I could not be more excited for tomorrow. There is just something about a blank page or a fresh start that is so refreshing. I’m looking forward to it and the Tone It Up Love Your Body challenge begins January 14th. Yay! I’m not doing the 5 day detox before I start. For me the detox doesn’t work. It’s not enough calories and I end up binge eating to make up for the deficit of calories. If it works for you that’s awesome it unfortunately just is a trigger for me.

Today we ran a bunch of errands and I picked up my new car! She’s a beauty!

I’m loving this sweater weather. I scored this loft sweater for under $15! I just love the detailing in the back and it’s such a pretty color.

Such a steal

My entire outfit was less than $45 for Christmas Eve! What do you think? The dress itself is under $15 (originally $89.50!). I sized down to a 0.

Comfortable and Casual in South Carolina

Hi babes,

We made it to Myrtle Beach (MB!) yay! It took us 16 hours to get here (usually takes 12!) but we now will have a car down here. We are leaving a car here so when we come and won’t have to rent one. We are flying back to New Jersey on Wednesday. It’s so warm here I opted to wear a sweater and jeans so I don’t have to wear a coat.

    Wellness Wednesday: Natural Deodorant Reviews

    For today’s Wellness Wednesday we are talking about deodorant and in particular natural deodorant! I made the switch over to natural deodorant about a year ago and I’ve spent the year trying to find the best natural deodorant!

    I’m going to start with my favorite and then give you a review of each one.

    My favorite is Kopari Coconut natural deodorant.

    The deodorant smells good, goes on clear and stays clear, and doesn’t leave you smelly at the end of the day. It’s also really smoothing and moisturizing. When you do get your sweat on you smell like coconut!

    Toms natural deodorant was the cheapest and easiest option to find. I was able to go to my local Target and get it, however; I felt like I smelt funky by the end of the day when I used it. And if I went to the gym I reapplied before and after my workout in fear I would smell bad.

    Schmidt’s Natural deodorant was the first one I tried. The review were good on Amazon and I was able to order right on the website. I thought this was ok, my biggest complaint is it didn’t go on clear and often got on my clothes. I do feel it kept from smelling through my day but I had to reapply before a workout.

    Finally, the last deodorant I tried was Green Tidings natural deodorant. This was also available on Amazon and had the cleanest ingredients, however; I only wore it for a few days before I had to throw it out. I felt like I smelled immediately after putting it on and didn’t think it worked at all.

    Are you thinking of making the switch to natural deodorant?
