Consistency of Working Out

The hardest part of working out is the consistency of just going to the gym. Let’s face it, getting off the couch and out the door takes more willpower than not eating the ice cream sitting in your fridge. That ice cream you’ll forget about until that craving hits, but working out, it’s something you’ll think about throughout the day all the way up to that critical moment in which you either go or you find the excuse that outweighs your reasoning for going. In my recent struggle to find both the time and consistency with going, I have found that constancy and sacrifice in the daily life can lead to the necessary habits that make the gym not a “want to” but a “have to.” The sacrifices I’m talking about comes in the form of self-control. Examples could be: not eating that last piece of pizza even though you’re full, or giving up drinking for a specified time, or getting up and going to work when you’re feeling under the weather and it’d be much easier to just not go. Life is full of inconveniences that will make you want to sacrifice something for nothing. In most cases for those trying to go the gym, it’s the workout. “I didn’t sleep much last night so I’ll just sacrifice the morning workout to get an extra hour of sleep.” “I worked really hard today so I’m just going to sit and watch TV and relax instead of going to the gym.” Everyone has an excuse, it’s working past them that will lead to real gains, both in the gym and life.

Buying a Car!

This is a sponsored post.

Buying a vehicle is one of the biggest and exciting purchases someone can make in my family. Buying a car can be scary and something not a lot of people will have the experience to know what exactly needs to be done to prepare for a new car. Below is a few list of things that my family and I follow when we go to purchase a new (or new to us vehicle).

1. Safety and more Safety

Did I mention safety? Safety is the most important thing to look at (well in my honest opinion). We have a lot of little ones so some of the questions I ask myself is.. “Will it for the car seats comfortably?” “How many airbags and where are they located?” “What is the protection of this vehicle in a crash?” These are just some of the few questions to think about regarding safety when buying a new vehicle.

2. The Best Deal

I don’t know about you, but we are all about saving money any way we can. Before buying my first vehicle I like to do research on every detail. I like to research how much the vehicle is new compared to used. The prices between the age differences and price between the “decked out” model compared to the “basic” model. I try to find the best deal so when I am able to finally go look at vehicles I know if this vehicle is a good deal or something I can buy cheaper down the road.

3. Lastly Being Comfortable in the Vehicle you picked out

Always test drive the vehicle before you purchase it! Make sure you are comfortable with how the breaks work or where the mirrors are. Also, make sure you are 100% about buying the vehicle. If you do not feel confident in buying it then go home, sleep on it, and figure out the next day if this would work best for you! It is not something that has to be done, so take your time and enjoy the ride!

Crochet Braids

This is a sponsored post however the opinions are my own honest opinions.

I have always had short thin hair that is hard to style and do anything with. I have recently discovered crochet braids and I am in love! They have so many different styles to choose from. They have anything from going out with the girls one night, going to a wedding, going on a fancy vacation or even just everyday hair! I love how much variety of colors you can choose from. From pink, hot pink, purple, blonde, brown, black you name it they have it. Not only do they have an outstanding variety they also have outstanding prices. With such high quality of wig, I feel as if it might even be a steal at the price I’m getting it for. The braids are high quality making it easy to maintain, and easy to switch out. Divatress strives to maintain high-quality braids for anyone’s taste in braids, texture, and color.

Many of the braids are pre-looped loop braids making it easy to install so when it installed property no one would even know you have crochet braids in. Being a Diva can be hard but Divatress is trying to make it as easy as possible to keep beautiful with your crochet braids.

Hormel Gatherings Party Trays

I was given a free trey of Hormel Gathering Party Trey for my honest review!

During the holidays having a three year old little boy, I have learned it can be hard to cook everything because having to chase him around makes it impossible to cook sometimes. I figured why not give this a shot? It was a quick and easy way to serve a plate. Not only was it quick plate but it tasted AMAZING. It helped with my stress level because it was one less thing I had to do which more time to do things I enjoy time with my son.


The Hormel Gatherings Party Trays was set up as an appetizer before I set out all the food. Usually every year I try to cut up the cheese, meats and set the crackers out nice, so this trey helped a lot with saving time in that area. Everyone loved it and by the time we ate almost everything on the trey was gone. Everyone kept asking me where I got it because it was a great idea for parties, weddings or even Christmas coming up. I’m sure this trey will be a tradition carried on from holiday to holiday or even to family gathers from now on.


I found these at Walmart and you can too! They have many choices to choose from so pick your favorite one and enjoy!

Cocoa Butter Madsage Lotion


Ever been stuck looking for a lotion that hydrates your skin and that can be used as a soothing massage lotion? I tried this Cocoa-Comfort Massage Lotion and I have not tried anything after. This is made with real cocoa butter, real avocado oil, real soy oil and Aloe Vera to help hydrate to maintain smooth and balance skin. This lotion is also used to enhance the texture and tone of the skin. I love how it last all day that I do not need to keep reapplying throughout the day. This lotion is great for any skin types either it is super dry, oily, very oily, this lotion works with your skin to maintain the healthiest outcome. The aftermath of the lotion is not too greasy, so it gives it a perfect finish. This cocoa-butter massage oil is paraben and cruelty-free. Another factor that made me fall in love with this product is how kid friendly it was. Having three little boys running around, who are all different skin types, this lotion has made it easy for me to not spend so much money buying three different types of lotion to accommodate their skin types. This Cocoa-comfort massage lotion comes in two sizes. It was recently marked down from $29.95 to only $18.50 for the 8 oz. The 1 gallon is priced at $67.50. These are great deals for the product you are receiving!
