Let’s get real

Man, as I am sitting here sipping off a glass of “Prophecy” red wine. I think it’s super ironic that I’m about to share my favorite online store for active wear.

But truthfully, balance is key. If you enjoy a glass of wine. It’s okay to have it every now and then. I haven’t had wine in months, and today I’m celebrating, you know? =)

Do I really need a reason? No. But I got plenty.

For starters, this comfy Ellie Active Wear for this month’s box is insanely comfortable. I can’t seem to take it off. The over-sized hoodie is kinda everything.

I’m all about the deets. So I needed to show them off for you.

Can I also say that this sports bra is THE MOST COMFORTABLE sports bra I have EVER owned. Even by Ellie. And I went with a size small everything this month. I rather wear it all day than any of my bras. It’s LIFE.

The pants by the way are high waist, but like really. They are.

P.S. They really tighten the belly and lift the butt. It’s a must have in every girls’ closet.

In case you also wanted to know, Boston is “Chicago windy” today…

So the below pic will have to do (without my face showing). Let’s just imagine that’s in right now LOL!

On a serious note (sort of), check out Ellie and find out why I freaking love them.

Every month, you get the cutest box delivered to your door, with another 3 reasons to hit the gym HARD. I mean, if cute gym outfits don’t motivate you to workout, I don’t know what will.

Bucket list of joy

Once upon a time…

The Holidays were the happiest time of the year for me

I think a lot of my readers can relate to a time they felt the same

Every year since I moved to the United States, all I’ve done is feel sorry for myself

Every end of November is a reminder of what I no longer have

A huge family to celebrate the holidays with like I used to growing up.

This year, you could say it’s a bit worse

My mom/best friend won’t be here this year either

She traveled to Brasil to be with her mom, brothers and sisters

But I want to change my mindset this year and challenge you to do the same

We can’t change what’s changed (pun-intended)

HOWEVER, we CAN start new traditions

Start new traditions to look forward to that fit your CURRENT life

Because everyone deserves to feel joy this time of the year!

So here are some new traditions I will start this year

Let’s call it my Holiday Bucket List of Joy:

  • Try a holiday baking recipe every year!
  • Go to at least ONE holiday party that a friend throws (no exceptions!)
  • Donate to a homeless shelter or volunteer
  • Invite TWO people in your life to see one Christmas movie at the theaters
  • Wear Christmas PJ’S on Christmas morning or Christmas Eve
  • Go to Mass and thank God for all your blessings (at least once)

YES! So the plan is to have this list on my fridge as a daily reminder

And also, so I can check it off as I complete my traditions.

Obviously, yours may be different than mine

Or you may like what I have.

Either way, I hope this year- you transform your thinking and find joy.
