Saturday Morning | Vegan Adventures

So I live literally right near a creek and I love going and walking up stream and acting like a freaking bush women, haha it’s just so pretty and filled with nature. I actually saw two deer that I tend to see around from time to time, some fishes swimming, ducks playing and lots of bugs, of course haha. Here’s a few pictures I snapped along the way! 

Also, can we just take a moment and all be excited about the fact that FALL IS HERE!!!


I finally gave in… 

I’m not one for ever doing these ‘fitness challenges’ because I chose to change my lifestyle not my physical activity and eating for x amount of days, then goback to the regularly scheduled program. 

Yet, here I am about to try a 21 day shredding challenge. I figure, I already go to the gym 4 times a week and eat fairly healthy SOOOOO why not change up my workouts a little and be a slightly more careful about what goes in my mouth.

I found this challenge on Muscle and Strength it’s called “Fast & Furious: 21 Day Shredding Workout Cycle & Diet”so many words I don’t particularly like in the title, but hey loosing a couple pounds never hurt anyone. 

First thing I noticed was the meal plan, it’s unfortunately not Vegan friendly but a few changes here and there and of course it can be followed on a Vegan meal plan. I liked how this was changed up based on sex ( yes, as a predominantly male industry a lot of the plans you’ll find are catered to men) and weight. Now, I don’t suggest following this to a ‘T’ because whomever made this, generically created it for as many people as possible to use! You need to take everything into consideration, so medical issues, work, social events etc…

I’m going to be starting this next week, honestly…well see how long I make it haha! 

Il’l be posting daily for 21 days to show progress (obviously that won’t be on the daily) my meal plan (Vegan-style) and my workouts, my thoughts and how I feel during this…. adventure?

Stay tuned! 

A special getaway | I almost died?!

My hubby and I have been married two years as of September 5 2016. Every year we plan a little getaway to spend time just us (& our fur-baby of course) be with nature and enjoy the great outdoors. 

Even though the bugs (well the fly’s) were outrageous and one night the weather was low-key horrifying, it involved me accidentally seeing that where I was, was under a ‘severe storm watch’ which of course, got upgraded to a ‘tornado watch’ (keep in mind where I’m from, does NOT EVER get Tornados or any weather of the sort) and me being the crazy over analyzer that I am, started FREAKING OUT and figuring out all the ways I could potentially die. Of course the Weather Network had to inform us on what to do if and when this Tornado hits – you know stay indoors, go into a room with no windows (preferably a basement) those kinda things… well as you can see from the pictures our cottage was, less than ideal. I had to take it one step further and stalk the Weather Network like it was my ex-boyfriend and research the crap out of how-not-to-die by Tornado – I honestly started replaying Twister in my head and contemplated tieing myself to something that was very, very deep in the ground. After many texts to my dad, literally telling him to pray for my life… and many hours of stalking…. thank goodness a tornado didn’t hit us and the weather warning was lifted and all in all we had SUCH an amazing time. The End, hahahaha 

Here are some pics below! Enjoy xo 

We went from September 7 to 12 and of course, it was another full Vegan adventure (junk food edition) from Vegan nachos to burgers, loaded fries & everything in between …. and a MAJOR detox is currently underway. Which, of course will have to be another blog post 🌿
