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.

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.
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!
Maca is considered one of the ‘super foods” around the world. Maca is a plant that is grown at the extreme altitude of 12,000 to 15,000 feet in the Andes mountains where only selective plants like potatoes and alpine grasses grow. There are many benefits about this root for starts it has been used over 2,000 years by native people of the region and helped to improve fertility in women and men. These roots adapt to your age and gender making it the perfect superfood! This powder can be added to smoothies, cereal, and oatmeal. It can also be used in baking and for bread. The most common form of this root is in powder form. Maca roots have a positive effect on hormone balance, immune system, memory, focus, energy levels, and a health booster for many. Maca has a long history of being a good healing nutrition for medical benefits. The native Andes believe this root can make you feel more “alive” energetic and leaves someone with a better sense of understanding. It helps elevate the “feel good” endorphins which in turn make someone feel good about themselves and are in a much better mood. This plant-based nutrient includes protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, and many others.
Every morning I like to put this in my shake. I don’t usually eat anything in the morning so being able to have something as nutrients as this in my shakes have helped a lot. Some of the personal effects I feel are being more awake, having more energy, being able to stay focused better, and also feeling better about myself. Another amazing thing about this product is that it is gluten free, dairy free and a raw food. I do not have to worry about what I am putting in my body. I highly recommend this product
Thanksgiving is coming up!! Do not forget the pecan pie everyone loves!! Below is an amazing recipe that everyone will love!
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 1⁄2 cups corn syrup (it could be any type of corn syrup)
- 4 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄2 cups pecans
- 1 unbaked deep-dish pie shell
- Heat oven to 350
- In a saucepan boil sugar and corn syrup together for 2 to 3 minutes then set aside to cool off slightly.
- While that is cooling off I like to chop up the pecans in a shredder.
- In large bowl you will want to beat eggs lightly then very slowly pour the syrup mixture into the eggs, stirring continually.
- At this point I like to strain the mixture to make sure it’s smooth and lump free.
- Stir in the butter, the vanilla, and the shredded pecans then pour into crust.
- Bake in a 350°F oven for about 45 to 60 minutes or until set.
