• North Carolina’s Hidden Hot Spots

    Posted on March 18, 2017

    It is no secret that North Carolina is one of the great places to be. We live in a beautiful state where you are never too far away from the mountains or the sea. Popular places like Charlotte, Asheville, Raleigh, and Wilmington are great places for fun, and family travel, but what about those small towns in-between? I want to explore some of those not so familiar North Carolina towns

  • Easy Morning Drinks For A Great Day

    Posted on March 9, 2017

    With so many different “health drinks” and morning routines it’s hard to narrow down which one is right for you. I have tried several but I find myself jumping between these four drinks to get my morning started. Sole Water, Baking Soda Water, Lemon Water, and Apple Cider Vinegar. The reason I keep going back to these four drinks is because they are all great for your body, super simple

  • More Salt Please

    Posted on March 6, 2017

    In my earlier years of healthy eating, I adjusted several things in my diet. Two of the biggest changes I made were increased water and reduced salt. I think most people will agree that those are healthy lifestyle choice. My water intake is around 12 -16 cups of water a day. This is technically much higher than what is recommended for my body weight (7.5 cups) but I believe that

  • Spice It Up

    Posted on February 15, 2017

    I grew up enjoying the delicious foods of the south. Unfortunately delicious in my family is the opposite of nutritious.  I still love the food that my family makes but I try to keep greasy, fried, canned or smothered in sugar and butter out of my diet. Because of this, a comment that I continually hear is “If it’s healthy it doesn’t taste good”. I would like to think that

  • Why You Should Write An Anonymous Blog

    Posted on February 10, 2017
    Anonymous Blogger

    Most of the blogs that I read are not anonymous and I salute these people. I know that if I want my blog to really succeed (I do) then I probably need the support of my friends and social media but for now, I want to talk about the personal benefits of starting your blog anonymously. When I decided to write a blog it was an impulse decision and very

  • Which Workout Works?

    Posted on February 6, 2017

    I am happy to say that I have finally gotten back to the body that I am happy with. Growing up as an athlete and being a pretty active person I never really struggled with weight. I just assumed I would stay in good shape, but like many, college was a rude awakening. I quickly put on the freshman 15, or more…and it was there to stay. Going to school

    Coconuts

    My all-time favorite product (like many) is coconut oil. I cannot express how much I love this stuff! Four years ago my mom introduced me to coconut oil and I haven’t looked back since. So why do I love it so much? If you aren’t familiar with coconut oil, it is a great oil that is used primarily for cooking and in place of beauty products. It is solid up

  • Take The Day Off

    Posted on January 30, 2017

    It goes without fail that at least once a year you will find yourself with a cold. The headaches, sore throat, chills and lack of sleep can leave you feeling miserable and sometimes they linger for quite a while. Because of their lack of severity we normally just go about our everyday lives and let ourselves suffer through the symptoms. I won’t get on my soap box about modern medicine

  • Find the Time

    Posted on January 29, 2017

    I noticed that after college my friends and I found it hard to want to exercise after work. It is exhausting getting into the routine of just working and there are plenty of other things you “need” to be doing other than exercising, right? Wrong! What could be more important than your health? Not only does exercise help you maintain a healthy weight, it also helps to boost your immune
