Ready to Kick-start the New Year?

Welcome back Loves!

It sure has been quite some time since my last post, so please forgive me. Senior year has definitely taken my by surprise and I admit to stepping away from the blog as I focus on my LAST year of college! (In case I decide to get a Master’s, more on that later).

While I have figuratively been away, I have had some time to think about how quickly this year has gone by. I know it’s cliche and seemingly true each year, but 2017 in particular has flown by! So I got to thinking, and decided it would be my personal mission this nee year to embrace each day and make 2018 count! First step – focus on my health.

With that I mean I need to take a break from my fast food cravings (no matter how delicious they taste in the moment, they don’t taste as great once you know the harm they do to your body *major sad face*). Now rather than doing a full recap of my life over the last 4 months since my last post – that will be coming soon since there’s been plenty happening – I want to kick start the 2018 planning by inviting you all to ride the health-kick train with me!

Ready to ride the health-kick train?

Month of Meal Planning


Personally, I’m a ‘planner’ and it’s easiest for me to keep track of, well, everything by writing it all down [and erasing it to make it look neater] and storing it on my desk to see every day. Because of this, I have created a **drum roll** CALENDAR! I honestly didn’t know how to go about it at first and it is not perfect, but I am so excited to share it with you all here: Monthly Meal Plan.

To make life a tad easier (since meal planning is not easy) I’ve formatted the calendar into weekly quadrants so they can be used as a note taking page and work for years to come!

Are you ready to start the New Year and kick-start your healthy routine? I would love to read any suggestions you have about meal planning or even your favorite recipes! Share your ideas with me by commenting below!

I’ve missed you all! Thank you for reading –

Good Morning Loves!
