No Excuse November Day 16: Wellness Wednesday

Just stopping by to share my Habit Tracker! One more successful week down means one more week closer to my goals!

Habit Tracker Week 2!

A couple of days ago, I mentioned struggling with the time change. It’s dark more than it is light, which makes me sleepy. I restarted taking my vitamin D, and about mid-day I open the blinds; this has really seemed to help. I am not ready for bed at 6:30pm, the last 2 nights LOL. I also order a personal sunlight lamp, which I will start using tomorrow.

I would love to hear about your goals, habits, wellness challanges, wellness vitories, etc….

Be Peaceful,

No Excuse November Day 12: Sharing Saturday & Sunday!

Weekends are made for sharing!

I’m just stopping by to share my tracker and what I’ve been up to today!

Week 2 is going well!

So far, I am keeping up with my habits. Yay! Every time I check one off, I know I am one step closer to my goals!

Today started out very slow motion. Breakfast, reading, a load of laundry, reading, lunch, reading, LOL, then we went to the movies!! We saw Wakanda Forver. Now I’m home about to watch a Hallmark movie 📽 🎄😌!

How did your week go? Are you working on any habits or goals? How did your Saturday go? Anything exciting going on this weekend?

Be Peaceful,

No Excuse November Day 9: Wellness Wednesday

What is your game plan to achieve Wellenss? Do you have specific Wellness goals?

In this past week, I shared my plan for No Excuse November in which I am working on specific habits that are steps to my long term goals!

Week one is complete, and I met what I set out to. I struggled a few times with the urge to make excuses for not completing my habits but then reminded myself that this was #NoExcuseNovember.

I am loving the earlier wake-up time! I get about 10 minutes to myself in the morning and am much less rushed!

When we learned about the 8 demisions of Wellness last month, we learned that all aspects of our lives are included in Wellness. Therefore all of our goals are Wellness goals!

I would love to hear what goals or habits you are working on and see how you are tracking.

Be Peacful,

No Excuse November Day 8: Tasty Tuesday

Welcome to Tasty Tueday! This week, it was hard to pick a favorite tasty dish because I had a few!

The winner was the Blue Apron dish One-Pot Tomato & Parmesan Risotto with Crispy Prosciutto. I had never cooked Risotto before, and my husband wasn’t sure he had ever eaten it, so this was a first for us both!

No Excuse November Day 2: Wellness Wednesday

During Blogtober, we learned about the 8 deminsions of wellness: intellectual, emotional, physical, social, occupational, spiritual, environmental, and financial. We also saw how many of them overlap each other. For No Excuse November, we will share things we are doing or could do to get us towards our wellness goals.

Currently, my main deminsions of focus are intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual. What deminsions are you currently focused on or planning to focus on?

Something I am doing towards my intellectual wellness is my CEs for my pharmacy tech license. I do not currently work in that field; I worked hard for that license and would like to maintain it. Something I look forward to doing is the WordPress courses, to learn how to build this site and grow my audience.

I would love to hear what you are doing to focus on your wellness!

Be Peaceful,

No Excuse November Day 1: Tasty Tuesday

Happy November 1st and day 1 of No Excuse November!

We will continue with Tasty Tuesday during November.

Last week, our most tasty meal was a copycat Zuppa Toscana. Here is a link to the recipe I used with a few tweeks: https://bellyfull.net/zuppa-toscana/.

Netties version of CopyCat Zuppa Toscana

The tweeks I made are as follows:

I used ground hot italain sausage, kale instead of spinach, added Mrs. Dash Italian seasoning and added crushed red pepper flakes. I served with cheese toast.

This soup is my husbands favorite at the restraunt, and he said my version was actually better. The leftovers were even better.

If you try this reciepe, please let me know and share any tweeks you make!

What did you have this week that was tasty?

Be Peaceful,

Blogtober Day 30: Step it up sunday

Simple steps we can take while preparing for the week to take it to the next level………

My weekend was pretty busy, so my time to prep for the week was limited. I knew I really had to utilize my time wisely. Sunday morning, I made waffles for breakfast. I decided to double the recipe, so I would have a couple extra for later in the week. Since I cook breakfast every morning, I knew this would save me some time during the week, therefore making my mornings smoother.

For waffles and pancakes, I like to use Millville Protein with Oats mix from Aldi’s. I like to add egg whites (1/3 cup per batch) to add more protein and make them a little fluffier. Sometimes, I add chopped peacans and chocolate chips (bake believe or lily’s brand).

What was something you did last weekend to prepare for the workweek?

Be Peaceful,
