Trying to Get Healthier

Lately I have decided that it’s time I tried to get healthier considering that I have definitely put on some weight and it would just be good to try and get healthier anyway. I would just like to say that I am not vegetarian or vegan and I do not ever plan on becoming either, so there is not point in trying to pressure me into becoming either by constantly saying I should become one of those.


I have set myself a goal to drink two of this bottle full of water. I might actually bump it up to three considering I’ve been making the original goal fairly easily. It may not seem like a lot but for me even if I cut out other drinks, I won’t just start drinking water, so I had to set a goal and it’s going great.


Our fridge is now full of a lot more veggies as well seeing as I have been having a salad every day for lunch which I personally enjoy eating a salad a lot. I just sometimes like a burger or something else more.


This last grocery shopping trip I didn’t buy any frozen food either (the mozzarella sticks only have two left and that’s from when I just had surgery and couldn’t stand in order to cook food). I have been actually making dinner from recipes hence also why there are more vegetables in the house. The only thing that gets frozen is the meat to make sure it doesn’t go bad before I can get to making dinner with it.

With trying to be more healthy I am not completely cutting out bad things like soda and more unhealthy foods. I am just trying to limit my intake of them and make healthier foods and water my more normal every day diet.

I also have started walking the dog again and I’m doing the exercises I can, but of course my foot is still healing, so out of my two ten minute work out routines I can only do about 6 and half minutes of one. I’m not really sure why I decided to share this, but why not? Maybe it will inspire other people to not necessarily do this exact thing, but something else to help them feel better about themselves (not saying that you have to hate yourself in order to want to change things of course).


Umbreon Got Shaved

It was long past due. We finally were able to get around to shaving our dog Umbreon. img_0168

This is what she usually looks like. At least, for about half the year she looks like this. It doesn’t seem so bad, but her fur gets extremely matted because she is a Puli, but she isn’t a pure bred, so her fur won’t turn to dreadlocks like it’s supposed to. Which of course means that when summer and the heat come it’s time to shave it off.


And here is what she looks like now. It’s not a perfect hair cut, but we aren’t professional dog groomers. I wish I would’ve taken a picture of the lump of fur that she took off her, but of course I forgot. For a size comparison I’m gonna use a picture of our 9 pound cat, Spooky.


We had enough for to make about one and a half of him.

Umbreon may not have enjoyed it much, but it is better in the long run seeing as she was even starting to try and rip out clump of her fur they were so matted and gross. That’s been our Saturday so far. Hope you are enjoying yours!!

Quick Update

I don’t really have any pictures or anything to add to this post, so sorry if it’s a little boring looking. I haven’t been doing much recently, so there hasn’t really been anything for me to write about on here as I have just been sitting around the apartment waiting for my foot to heal.

Seeing as summer has finally started hopefully we will do a bunch of cool stuff this summer that I can write about. I know in August we are going to be doing something extremely fun and awesome and this month is Aaron and I’s third anniversary.

For now though, I will just leave this quick little update here just to make sure people don’t think I’ve given up on this blog or anything like that. Have a happy summer!!

Some Stuff I Bought Recently

It has been a bit of a crazy month seeing as it was my birthday this month, I had surgery, and just some other crazy personal stuff, so I wasn’t really able to write much. Today I decided to share some stuff I bought recently.


As you may know Eevvee and it’s evolutions are my favorite pokemon, with Sylveon being the absolute favorite. I already have some Eevee bags, but one more couldn’t hurt and this one was smaller for when I only needed my wallet and phone which I find very convenient and easy to use.


It’s been getting starting to get super hot like it does in Colorado (yes I know there are hotter and worse places, the thing is I get super hot really easy), so I needed to get some tank tops that had lower cut arm pit holes for my rather sweaty self. This Zelda one looked awesome and it is super comfy and does exactly what I need it to.


This next and final tank top is one of my new favorite shirts. The arm pit holes are cut super low, it’s black so you can’t see any sweat, and it has Umbreon on it. It’s even better cause it’s like I’m carrying my dog with me when I wear it seeing as she is named after this pokemon.


My last item or items cause it came in a set of five are these adorable kitty socks. They are ankle cut which are the only kind of socks I wear and the colors are pink (obviously), light blue, lilac, black, and white.

That’s all I have to show for this post. I will hopefully be writing more soon as I really do enjoy writing on this blog and I know I don’t do it nowhere near enough.
