Oil Cleansing

One of the main reasons I started this blog was actually to document the struggle I’ve had with acne over the years. I’ve mentioned before, I’ve had acne since I was 11 years old, and now, as an adult, suffering from cystic acne still, I have been trying every solution I can find.  Long story short, after trying goodness knows how many different face washes and acne treatments you find in a store (with no long-term success) I decided to try natural products.  That led me to learning about essential oils, which then led me down another path toward overall healthy living.  And here we are!

What’s going on – Update

First and most importantly, thank you to all those who showed me so much love based on the last entry.  It was a bit of a rough patch, but I have some news.  I got my results back from the doctor, and amazingly enough, everything came back normal. Continue reading “What’s going on – Update”

Resolutions

Happy New Year!!
First, apologies for the lack of updates recently. As I explained in my previous post about sleep, and what I’ll also detail below, I’ve had quite a bit going on. Here’s to a new year with more blog posts! Continue reading “Resolutions”

Baltimore Running Festival!

It’s here! Tomorrow is my first half marathon race. I’m kind of in awe that I’ve actually made it this far, and that I can cross off probably my loftiest goal/New Year’s resolution.

My goal is to finish the face under 2:30 – my Charles St. 12 race time was 2:00:05, but this race is supposed to be harder… so I’m hoping that’s a reasonable goal. Continue reading “Baltimore Running Festival!”

Loving Me

Once again, it’s been quite some time since I’ve last written.  This time the gap has a little more to do with the topic I wanted to write about, and less about the amount of free time I’ve had to write.  

This post has everything to do with the title of this blog.  One of the most difficult obstacles I have come to tackle while on this path towards wellness is not so much an obstacle of fitness, medicines or food, but rather, coming to value myself for who I am, and loving myself.

So…. tired….

Lately I’ve run into a pattern that basically amounts to me being too busy for my own good.  Unfortunately, my priorities are a little out of line and sleep seems to be what takes the brunt of the problem.  I don’t really want to admit how little sleep I’ve gotten over the past month because I know how bad it is.  Let’s just say I tend to see the later parts of the night and double digits on the clock more often than not.  (Thankfully though, I don’t see the single digits before going to sleep.)

Morning Ritual

Hey there friends!!

So I’m sorry another week has gone by and I haven’t posted!!  I’ve been a little busy this past week because I started a brand new job!!  It’s kind of thrown my usual schedule through a crazy loop, and I’m still trying to adjust and get used to this new routine I’m trying to establish.  (It didn’t help to have Daylight Savings thrown in too.)   Continue reading “Morning Ritual”
