I recently received a meal service box from Hello Fresh (healthy recipes delivered to your door, you pick your menu and serving size, they have different plans to choose from to meet your needs, it also ships free) and I was really nervous to see how I’d like it and if my food would actually arrive cold or not. 😬 It arrived on the day as shipping noted and to my surprised I opened everything up and it was all packaged very nicely, separated by recipes into boxes 📦 (if you’re big on organizing then this will make you happy). Everything was very cold and looked wonderful!
The box came with ingredient/recipe cards for each meal as well. I received 2 meals: Shrimp and Sausage Gumbo and Holy Moly Spinach Artichoke Ravoli.
Spinach Ravoli was filling and very good, and easy to make!
Gumbo was SO good, it was very different and full of flavor, also easy to make!
Overall I really loved this box, you can skip meals and order when you want so you’re not locked in and if it’s not for you it takes 30 seconds to cancel on line!

My weight loss journey has been slow…. super slow… I breast fed for 20 months, yep and proud to do so BUT my body would not let go of the weight. So when I finally stopped I still wasn’t losing.. oh yay.. but I did NOT give up, I can officially say in the last month my body has regulated from nursing and my metabolism is back on track and I stepped on the scale this morning to see a number I haven’t saw in a very, very long time. I’m proud of myself, my journey even slow it’s happening, I feel FANTASTIC, I have energy, I workout, I eat right and take some certain amazing health products! So you guys, don’t quit, don’t give up, you got this!! Keep an eye on me because I have some major goals I aim to crush this year!

I’m always on the hunt for really great exercise pants, preferably capris. I stumbled upon these on HSN.com last week and I wanted to try them because obviously they’re cute, I love Jessica Simpson Style and they were on sale, so I ordered two pairs.😍
First off, I love the capris so much but I think they run very small, I normally would wear an XL in workout bottoms as I’m a size 16. I ordered size 3X because I read to size up and I have noticed a trend in designer clothing running smaller. (I probably would have fit in the 2X just fine because they are very stretchy.)
They are very comfortable and stretchy, they move with your body and do not heat you up while you work out, so your legs won’t get super sweaty.
I wore my colorful purple pair today while working out and I got several compliments on them, I’m telling you, they are really cute! 👌🏻
They also have a zipper pocket in the back to store your keys or card, it has a reflective stripe above the zipper as well.
The retail price is $54.00 each but I scored them on sale for $14.97 which I think is a great deal! I highly recommend giving this brand a try, I personally can’t wait to try more of her workout gear, just remember to size up!

If you’re like most people I know you have a hard time getting all of your daily allotment of water in, so, for the month of November I’m doing a challenge to keep us hydrated!
Did you know you need to drink HALF of your body weight in water every single day to stay hydrated? Yep, so let’s say you weight 150lbs you need to drink 75oz per day! It is completely doable once you get into the habit of it.
