Eating Healthy While Traveling

The holiday season is almost over and one thing that was extremely important to me while I was traveling to visit family across the country was to continue eating heathy. Especially in the airport because anyone who has traveled knows airport food prices are outrageous!!!!

As an early Christmas gift my boyfriend bought me a 6 pack bag!!


This thing is AMAZING!!! it is the 300 edition so there is room for 3 meal trays that stay either hot or cold, 2 side pockets that will both hold 2shaker/blender bottles or containers for other food items! I put 2 bottles in one side and containers for fruit in the other! There’s also room in the top pouch for tons is other things! And as long as there is no liquid over 3oz when I go through security I can pretty much pre prep any food I want and bring it with me!!!!

Although a bag like this isn’t an option for everyone, the key is to just plan ahead. Even Ziploc bags with pre portioned heathy snacks are perfect traveling options!!

I did indulge some over the Christmas holiday and I do not feel bad about it. But I did prep healthy foods for my trip there, my stay and my trip pack so I could stay on track even while I had my occasional treat meals! Balance is everything!!!

Moving out and Moving on


Today we are finishing moving out and cleaning up our old apartment and officially going to our separate homes tonight. It’s a bittersweet feeling. This has been our home for the past 14 months and things have changed so much. I truly believe this apartment harbors very strong negative energy for us individually and as a couple. It hasn’t been the best 14 months and the last 6 or 7 has probably been the worst of our 6 1/2 year relationship. I’m happy to be out of this apartment, moving on, and starting fresh somewhere else, but I’m also terribly sad about the fact that I’ll no longer be sharing my home with someone who has become one of my best friends over the past 7 years. I know that after every storm comes a rainbow, and that God will never put more on me than I can handle, but the stress and the pain I’ve been going through lately is out of control. I’m unsure of our status as this moment, but I believe time apart will be good for us. We need the chance to grow as individuals and figure out exactly what we want in life and what we’re willing to do to achieve those goals. I’m not the same person I was when we met my junior year of high school. I’m not the same person I was 6 months ago. I’ve grown, I’ve changed, and whatever the cause may be, I am now different. Change is part of life, and rather than try to fight against it and force things to be the way they were or the way I’d like them to be, I’m letting go. Allowing God to handle them, and let whatever happens, happen the way it’s meant to. There are still things on my mind I feel I need to say, and in time, those things will come out. But for now, I’m closing this chapter of my life and moving on to the next one. There’s a new, exciting journey waiting right in front of me, and I plan on finally living my life to the fullest, finding out and being who I am, what anyone wants me to be, and living with no regrets.

wish me luck…

Busy Month Ahead

March is looking like its going to be a very busy month for me. Part of me is super excited, but the other part of me is super nervous and unsure if I can handle it all.

Work is getting crazy busy but I till feel like I need a 2nd job. I have school that is stressing me out because I don’t want to be taking any classes at all so I don’t feel like I’m putting even half of my all into it. Not good it at all

NaturalBelleDesigns is consuming my free time and I absolutely LOVE it . For March, I am participating in another IG auction that begins on the 4th (you should check it out, especially if you’re into phone cases and jewelry. Follow @heavenlyblingauctionpage for more details!!) 2 blog features and giveaways are in the works with another blogger as well as a potential 3rd feature. Super excited about those! And of course I will keep you all updated on those events!

Some days I feel like I’m constantly going and never have a second to stop and rest. Even when I get the chance to slow down, I jump on my NBD work and next thing I know it’s WAY past my bedtime lol.

What do you all do to balance life when you have things coming at you from every which way??
