Staying Active

Staying Active

Staying active and healthy should not be a chore, but it sure seems like one. The gym can be so boring, and it seems so easy to lose motivation.

I have been an athlete for most of my life, so I have always had someone there motivating me and telling me what to do, but now that I no longer play any competitive sports, it’s hard.  I tried the gym thing on my own, and it was soooo boring! So I have decided to skip the gym and do fun things to help stay in shape. I think the key to staying healthy and happy is to do the things that you enjoy! It will keep you motivated and wanting to stay active. I personally enjoy playing volleyball, so going out to the beach and playing with friends or going to an open gym and playing indoor is fun and keeps me active.

IMG_2003 I key to stay motivated while being healthy is to do things you love, do not make it a chore or your motivation will not last long. I hope you guys have a fun and active day! Get outside and do something you love!

Back to School Room Decorations

Back to School Room Decorations

It is about that time again when we gather our stuff and head back to school, or maybe this is our first time leaving home for college. Either way, it’s always fun to redecorate or add a few new pieces to your room.

I used to be in LOVE with pink and the past two years while at college my room was veryyyy pink! haha

I have grown out of the pink, though it is still one of my favorite colors. But I have strayed towards the more beachy colors such as turquoise, tan and even purples!

So this time around I got quite a few new things for our room. And I would love to share a couple of my favorite new decorations!

Elephants are my favorite animal, and this little box will be perfect for storing little odd and ends.

The tray will also be a good way to stay organized, It would be good for storing papers, or lotions and perfumes.
