August seems to have flown by for me. One minute I’m setting up my goals and thinking about school, the next minute I’m in school and working full time. Let’s see what goals I have been able to achieve and work on from August. If you’d like to look at them click here.
- I need to continue to stay more active with my blog. Trying to write or put up a little daily insight.
- I have been working out almost 3 days a week. I had a pretty good schedule. With work I have to find some time.
- I am still working on the “28 Day Challenge.”
- Meal prepping…It’s been kind of working. I need to learn more and become better at it.
- I am becoming more organized and using my journal more.
- I am still staying positive and having a happier attitude. Some day’s are harder than others.
Now, while I’m still growing and achieving these goals, here are some goals I added for September:
- Learn to meal prep more effectively.
- Stop procrastinating with homework and things that I have to get done. One example would be my online training for work.
- Get back into a Yoga routine.
- Find a skin care routine that works for me, and stick to it.
What are some of your goals for September? Are you currently in the middle of working on some goals? Let me know down in the comment section below. I would love to hear them!

Today I started my last semester before I earn my associates degree. I started this small journey many years ago, before the military. I have two classes to complete then I will be on my way towards a Bachelors degree. I am more than excited to finish up these classes. It is a little strange because they are both online, but there are pros and cons to this. I think the pros would be, not having to drive to campus and pay for parking. The cons would definitely be, not having that student/teacher interaction and help with material. I know this is a learning curve for professors, students and the families. Don’t lose hope, just stay focused and positive!
The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.

I recently was browsing through some wonderfully written blogs, and found one that started talking about goals for the month. I love having goals. The thought of having a goal helps me strive for it even that much more. I know it’s not the beginning of August, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start. Last month I managed to complete a goal that took me a few months to complete. You can read more about it here. So, my goals for August are:
- Stay more active with my blogging.
- Keep working out.
- Complete a new “28 Day Challenge.”
- Try to meal prep.
- Stay organized and use my bullet journal more.
- Keep being happy.
These are things that I’m trying to be more conscious about. Sometimes writing them down makes them feel more real in a sense. Out of these goals that I decided on, I think the last one is the most important to me. Trying to keep my soul happy. During this pandemic it may seem a little harder to do, but I’ve been trying to find different things to do. Some things that I like to do are yoga, working out, hang out with my family, write, and play some video games. I find that these activities help me find happiness in the days. What are some of our goals for August? What are some things that make you happy?

After 206 days out to sea, my old ship, the U.S.S Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) is finally back home. When I was deployed we did 90 days out to sea, no port calls, nothing. To be out there for 206 days, I know they were at each other’s necks but also relying on each other to make it home safely and in one piece. I’m glad they’re back home, safe and sound! I included the article from wavy 13 news in Norfolk, Virginia. Happy reading.

What It Taught Me
It took me a little longer than 30 consecutive days to do this challenge, but that’s okay. I actually started it back in March, which was a while ago. Even though it took a couple months, I still accomplished the challenge. There were many times that I thought I should just stop. Mostly because I wasn’t able to do it within 30 days or anything close to it. That has always been something I have struggled with. I felt like I had to do it within that time frame, or it wouldn’t count. I know that may sound funny, or a bit odd, but that’s how I tend to think. This challenge helped shape my way of thinking into something more positive. Something calming and something to look forward to. So what exactly is this 30 Day Challenge you ask…….
This challenge is part of the “Home series” of Yoga With Adriene. Anyone, and everyone, can participate in the routines in her videos. They range from beginner, to fairly advanced techniques. I’ve started off with her beginner videos and have slowly been working my way up. I am still nowhere near being an expert, but I’ve made a lot of progress through this challenge. I saw improvement in my form and flexibility, it also helped to calm my mind. This video above takes you on a journey of strength both physically and mentally.
How I Felt After Each Practice
My yoga days may have been sporadic, but I managed to do the videos in order. Some days I would be in a terrible mood before a video, but I would push myself to do them with the help of Chris and my family. I would set up my little area, turn on the video and focus on my yoga practice for the day. I would try to let go of what happened during the day and why I was feeling the way I was. After the video, my mood and attitude would be on a much lighter and happier spectrum. I started realizing that I can manage my stress and mood, with a little guidance, exercise and breathing. Sometimes.
What I Took Away From This Challenge
More and more I realize that yoga isn’t just different poses, flexibility and breathing exercises. I learned how to bring more positive vibes into my day. I learned that with a little tough love, and added motivation, I can finish something I put my mind to. Always remember, no matter how long it takes you to complete a goal or finish a challenge, if you keep at it, you will get there. This has given me a different perspective on challenges for myself. I will pursue my goals and keep motivating myself to achieve them. Yes, I get little bumps of encouragement along the way and that’s okay. It is awesome when someone gives you a tiny bit of motivation to make you work harder towards your dreams. Don’t forget to show appreciation to those that help motivate you. So stay strong. Stay motivated, you’ve got this. Give it your all and just go for it. 💚

After a busy morning of bringing my cat Solo to the vet, I decided to workout. I started off with my HIIT workout, then walked my pup Rex, did weights with my mom and then finished with Yoga.
I was debating whether or not I wanted to workout because I was feeling less than motivated. To be honest, whenever I feel like this, I try to find any excuse not to work out. Today, I pushed through that. I pushed through the stress and the feeling of not wanting to do anything.I’m glad I did. Doing the workouts, then winding down with the walk and Yoga, I had more energy and felt happier. My mind feels clear and I feel more productive.
If you start to feel that kind of negative energy, do something to occupy your mind. Try working out, reading a book or basking in the some. Do something to fill your body with more positive energy.
What are some of the things you do to clear your mind and bring positive energy into your day?
I have done thirteen days out of fourteen. It’s low impact, quick and effective.
For me, this is a nice Yoga practice after a workout or simply just because. Stretch those muscles and relax.

Alright everyone, I have 3 more movies to watch, in 3 days!
This Pandemic is still going on and many of us may still be finding ourselves with a lot of free time on our hands. These 3 movies can keep you entertained, and are fairly long so it will definitely help pass the time. These movies I’m talking about are: The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons and Inferno. I found this trilogy to be quite captivating. The movies are inspired by the book series by Dan Brown. Tom Hanks portrays the main character in all of these movies, which is nice because the same actor is kept playing the role. Ben Foster, Ewan McGregor and Paul Bettany also play roles in these movies. I watched part of The Da Vinci Code when I was younger, but didn’t quite understand it. Then again, I maybe got 20 minutes into it and switched it off. It wasn’t exactly the type of movie I was interested around that age. Now that I’m older and have a different outlook on movies, appreciation of history and good musical composition. I decided that I might actually enjoy it. So we, my boyfriend and I decided to watch these on our movie night.
The Da Vinci Code
This film was produced back in 2006 with Tom Hanks cast as the main character. It dives straight into secret societies and their hidden past dating back to the birth of Christianity. The main character Robert Langdon is basically thrown into all these whirlwind events. The movie is a race with Langdon to uncover the truth about what happened and why. Over a span of about 2 hours and 30 minutes, its on the longer end, but well worth it. The musical composition is also amazing and makes you feel more in the movie. If you want to hear some of the musical pieces on Spotify, click below:
Angels and Demons
This second Fim , we find ourselves right back at it with Robert Langdon. This time he’s called upon because the Illuminati have surfaced and there are puzzles only he can figure out. Langdon eventually finds himself searching through Vatican City to find the clues to stop the massive destruction of the city.
This is the last movie of the trilogy. Inferno starts off again with Robert Langdon suffering from retrograde amnesia, he’s told from trauma to the head. He is needed to decrypt hidden messages and stop a deadly virus from being unleashed on the world. Watching the first two movies comes, it to no surprise as to why they want Langdon in the first place. More secrets, more puzzles to solve all while running from multipe government agencies. Who can he trust? This movie also has a wonderful composition. Just listen for yourself down below.
I would have never come across these unless Chris suggested the, because he wanted to watch them. These movies had long been out of the spotlight and overshadowed by the more recent comic book films. We decided to just watch one movie each night, so we could unwind and look forward to something to do the next day. I thoroughly enjoyed these movies and the music that emphasized them . They were extremely entertaining and fun to watch. Grab some snacks, kick back and get comfy. I hope you enjoy the movies as much as I did. 💚

Being able to enjoy the outdoors almost feels forgotten. With the impact of COVID-19, we should make sure we do our part in keeping ourselves and others safe. In California, it has been an up and down battle on getting things under control. Sunday, my family and I decided that it was possible for us to get back into hiking and do our weekly walks. Of course we took precautions and followed the suggested guidelines. We had our hand sanitizers, keeping six feet apart and wearing our masks.
We decided to go to a less strenuous trail and hopefully wasn’t too crowded. We took Rex this time, so we only managed to make it about 2 miles.There’s a variety of starting points for a nice walk. It can start from Fernandez Park in Pinole and end all the way at Pinole Shores. Or you can start at Fernandez Park and find yourself in Hercules next to Leila by the Bay Restaurant. I have only done this hike once before when it first opened up and it was beautiful. Now, almost two years later, it still is a beautiful trail and kind of maintained in this Pandemic. The trail we decided to take had the starting point of Bayfront Park. Since the tide was out, we could walk out into the bay quite a ways. It’s can be very slick, so be careful. After we walked out into the bay, we made our way over the bridge which gives you a beautiful overlook of both the bay and Mount Tamalpais. We hit our 1 mile mark on my Fitbit and turned around. We couldn’t go much further because Rex was with us and it was hot! By the time we got back to the truck it was a little over 2 miles. The trail wasn’t very crowded at all. When we did see and pass people, we all had our masks on and practiced the 6 feet social distancing rule. It was nice to be outdoors again, and even nicer that people were polite and courteous of the situation.
The new bridge on the Bay Trail.
Some Things to Bring
- Good walking or hiking shoes.
- Water. Always a good idea to hydrate.
- Sunblock to protect your skin.
- If you bring your dog, they are required to be on a leash.
- A walking stick if you would like.
- Hand Sanitizer.
Parking is free and doesn’t get too crowded. Because of COVID-19 the trail upkeep is a little less. Be careful of wild animals, snakes and spiders. The area is relatively safe, but make sure to lock your vehicle and keep valuables out of sight. Bring a snack and water with you. Most of all, stay safe, have fun and enjoy the outdoors. 💚

The word means “corpse pose.” I feel like this is one of the more important poses in Yoga. It calms the body down commonly after the practice but, it can also be done in the beginning. Whenever it is time to go into Savasana I clear my mind and focus on the now. How my body feels, how my breathing is and how my mind is. Down below is a more in depth definition and a little “how to” do the pose. Relax your minds and your soul. 💚

Happy Blogging Anniversary!
I was informed today by the lovely WordPress that it is my One Year Anniversary on creating my blog. I can’t believe it honestly. I would have never started and shared this journey if it wasn’t for my amazing boyfriend Chris and his support with me. I just want to say a big thank you for everyone who follows me and stops by to share in this adventure. I can’t wait to keep writing and hopefully inspiring those who read my adventures in life. Stay safe, stay fun, stay curious. 💚

Keep In your Heart The Blood
Remember always the glory days,
the dances, the songs, the chants, the rituals, the customs,
Remember times in beautiful Africa, your people.
From green forests, golden deserts, to the deepest, darkest regions
of Congo and Virunga.
Hear, here in this land.
Hear always in your heart the beating of drums,
the ancient customs of the Kagani.
Remember always the kings and queens,
But do not sit and not remember the dark days.
Keep In Your Heart The Blood.
Blood spilled by those who fought for freedom.
The blood of the slave as the whip touches the flesh.
Do not be enslaved, be now empowered.
Feel it, taste it, drink it.
Gather it in buckets, bathe in it.
Bathe your children in it
Keep In Your Heart The Blood

I enjoyed today’s practice because I felt like it focused on your back. My back has been hurting a little bit the past few days. This video allowed my back to stretch and decompress and savor the stretching. When working out, stretching is so important to your muscles and your body. It keeps it safe and your body will enjoy it.

Keep striving for your goals. Everything counts, that extra second, that extra push-up. I constantly remind myself that if I don’t finish a workout video 100% that, it’s alright. I’m a work in progress and so is the way I think. Today I was proud of myself because during the HIIT video I follow. I managed to do tricep dips and a few jump lunges. I haven’t been able to do that yet, and I thought it was awesome. Then during my Yoga video I realized that I’m on day 15. Half way to the 30 day challenge…It may be taking me more than 30 consecutive days but, again that’s okay. I felt more flexible and able to do more.
So I guess what I’m trying to say is. If you feel stuck, if you feel like you’re not making progress, keep going! Be positive, strive for your goal, strive to do a little more each time. Be safe and have a great start to the week lovelies! 💚

Allied forces fought bravely and ferociously to establish a foothold through the fighting. June 6th, 1944 was the beginning of the end of a war.

First Week of June!
Summer is upon us and this first week of June I’ve been on the search for the perfect fruit cup. Fruit cups aren’t only healthy for you but they’re delicious and simple to make. It doesn’t take longer than 15 minutes, and you can add whatever you like! Here are three simple steps in making my fruit cup:
Summer Fruit Cup
What you’ll need!
- Chamoy Sauce
- Knife and a fork
- Cutting board
- Any other fruit you want
Pick whatever fruit you would like in your Summer Fruit Cup. Cut the watermelon and pineapple into strips and slice the rest of the fruit. Store the leftovers in the fridge to keep them cool and fresh.
Place the fruit strips along the inside of the cup. You can do this however you would like. Then take the diced up fruit, for my case the strawberries and pears and put them in the center.
The final step. Sprinkle Tajin throughout and add some Chamoy sauce to get that sweet yet savory flavor with a little kick. Grab a napkin and a fork. Find a comfy spot and relax!
This tasty treat is healthy and delicious. It’s almost like you could eat this every day for Summer! This is simple to make, can be made in less than 15 minutes and there’ll be leftovers for more! Have fun trying out something new. Enjoy this sweet treat and have a refreshing start to summer. Take a break from the Khaos 💚
My Morning in the Heat
Summer is really starting to feel like it’s here. Taking Rex on his walk, he tuckered out faster than I thought he would. That was okay with me though, I forgot to put sunscreen on and I felt my shoulders burning. After I got him some cool water and some air I decided to do another HIIT workout from Monday. I wanted to do it before the heat became unbearable.
Grabbed my water, and my Ipad and headed to the backyard. Its the only space where I have enough room and don’t feel like I’ll bring the house down with all the exercises. By now it’s a little after eleven o’clock and the heat is making itself known. I’m doing my thing, sweating, keeping up and then it was time for burpees. I have a love hate relationship with them. I did them to the best of my ability but then, I felt it. After a while you start to really know your body and when you push your limits I was doing just that. I heard the slight ringing in my ears, followed by everything becoming muffled. I felt myself getting a little dizzy and tunnel visioned. You guessed it, the heat was getting to me.
Thankfully, I’m able to recognize when my body has had enough. I stopped, let my heart rate slow down, drank my water and got inside to the cool air. After a few minutes, my body began to cool down and get back to where it needed to be. Did I finish the workout? No. That’s okay though. I was a little bummed out, but I would rather be safe than not.
Things to Watch for:
- Heat Cramps. Heat cramps will feel like more intensified cramps.
- Heat Exhaustion. The skin will be pale, clammy with excessive sweating. Stop the activity and cool down immediately.
- Heat Stroke. Skin will be hot and dry, seek immediate medical help. This is very dangerous.
Be careful and stay safe working out in extreme temperatures. Make sure to have a source of hydration accessible. Wear comfortable clothing for you and your environment. Most of all, have fun! I hope my little excursion of the day helps with becoming aware of your body and in a hot environment 🙂 Have fun working out lovelies! 💚

After taking my pup Rex for his walk, I decided I wanted to do a HIIT workout before my Yoga. So I scrolled through YouTube trying to find something with enough intensity but still kind of low impact. I can’t jump into high intensity extreme yet because I still have to watch out for my stress-fracture in my tibia. Her video had low impact exercises to go with every exercise she showed. I absolutely loved that! It allowed me to do the full workout at my pace. Here’s to June and putting my best fitness foot forward!
What are some of your goals, wants and plans for June? Have fun and stay safe out there my lovelies! ❤️

Finally Catching Up on That Movie List
So I have this GIANT list of movies that I have been procrastinating on watching. I always said I was too busy, there was no time or I would eventually get around to it. I think I originally started this list back in 2016 on my deployment year. I was off and on about adding movies and shows from 2016 to now. Since I was in Corpsman school this past January all the way up until April, I had some down time to watch movies and catch up on things. This definitely helped when my brain turned into mush from studying. I think I was able to watch about fifteen movies or so. Well, at least the ones I can remember. I would watch a movie about once a week to kind of chill out and relax. When March hit, so did COVID-19, and oh boy did I watch more Netflix and Hulu than I ever have before.
Watching movies isn’t just a good way to pass time, it’s also relaxing and fun. Watching movies and creating your bucket list of things you want to watch helps pass time during the pandemic. Instead of going to the movies, bring the movies to you, while staying home and staying safe. Before the pandemic, I used to love going to the movies. Minus spending what felt like a million dollars every time, it was fun. There’s that movie theater vibe, the smell of stale popcorn and butter flavored oil in the air. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 it may be a while before I visit the movie theaters again. That’s okay though, I can bring the movies to me. On the plus side I wont have to spend a million dollars to watch the newest movie. Down below are the movies I watched, with a tiny review. On a side note, no matter how good my reviews are, I’m not a professional.
Dun dun dun! I have wanted to watch this movie because it took place in California. Since I live here, I wanted to watch and learn about him and what he did. This film came out in 2007 starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Mark Ruffalo as the main characters. It’s a long movie but don’t be daunted by it! It is worth the watch and it will draw you into the movie until the very end. I would personally give it 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5/5 stars!
Oh boy, kudos to Disney again. This movie had me in tears, don’t worry though they were happy, not sad tears. Togo is about the dog who made the famous Serum Run in Alaska in 1925. William Dafoe plays the main character and does a hell of a job! This movie is intense, heartwarming and a tearjerker. This movie 🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕 5/5 I would watch it again.
Doctor Sleep is the years that happened after The Shining. It follows Dan Torrance as an adult and the events he encountered. He must protect someone just like him. This had me in my seat, shielding my eyes at some points because I decided to watch it in the dark of night. Loved the suspense, and the small flashbacks to The Shining. 🌟🌟🌟 3/5 stars for this scary movie.
Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
Isn’t that some type of movie title? As crazy as this movie title goes is as crazy as this movie goes. After what we know about Harley Quinn, Margot Robbie does an outstanding job with all that Harley energy. From crazy outfits, to wild fights, this movie will keep you interested and waiting to see what it brings next. P.S this movie is MUCH better than Suicide Squad. Harley Quinn, you get 🌟🌟🌟🌟 4/5 enjoy that single life!
Zombieland Rule #2 – Double Tap You think it’s dead (technically it was before you shot it), one more makes 100% sure. Zombieland: Doubletap is as ridiculous and funny as the first Zombieland. The cast for this movie work so well together and give you all the laughs you can need. Never under estimate zombies, Elvis lovers and Hippies. I’ll make sure to follow up on the rules if a Zombie apocalypse ever happens. Thanks for the rules. This movie gets a 🧟🧟🧟🧟 4/5 zombie score from me.
Don’t be deceived by the title into thinking this movie is horror. I thought it was but my laughs said otherwise. Who will win in this Hunt? And by win I mean…live. In a previous post that I wrote about it, goes into more detail here. If you like comedy, you’ll enjoy this movie. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 4/5 stars.
Let’s get to watching!
These were my top choices of the movies I’ve watched so far. Every so often, more shows and movies come up that I just add them to my journal. What makes the movies at home more fun, is the perks. Popcorn, comfy pillows a nice drink, or my personal favorite, a pint of ice cream! I suggest Ben and Jerry’s. Make it like a movie theater, but better. You can have the ambiance of going to the movies, but in the comfort of your own home. It’s always fun to watch movies with your friends, your loved ones, or make a social distance movie night! There are many ways to spice it up and enjoy a night in at the movies. Some items that may make it more fun and delicious are listed below:
- Popcorn Maker. This will make it smell just like the movies! (Affiliate)
- Healthy Popcorn. If you lean towards the healthy side.
- Make “Better than Movie Theater Popcorn.”
- Movie Nights! Make the movies in your own living room.

Memorial Day is a Holiday observed for the Men and Women who made the ultimate Sacrifice in protecting the United States and everything that it holds. We celebrate by remembering their spirit and what they sacrificed for us. Everyone respects this holiday differently and may have different ways of showing it. Thank you for everything you have done for my freedom. Fair Winds and Following Seas. We have the Watch.
