Knowing When To Step Away

anime-computer-girl-anime-girls-1

Social media is overwhelming at times and there is a point when ¬†you need to just separate yourself from it. It’s been a couple of weeks from my last post and while I love blogging, I needed a bit of a break. I finished my writer’s workshop course this past Tuesday and passed with an A-. There’s something that bothers me greatly about that minus but hey, I’ll take it! ūüôā

The rest of the week was downtime from my schoolwork and also from my next fitness challenge so I took the¬†time to completely step away from posting. I focused on “me time” by taking it easy with yoga, get chores done that often get pushed to the side when there’s homework needed to be done, catch up on my current read, and continue my run along with thousands of other writers in Camp NaNo.

Taking the time to catch up on other things that are happening in your life is important and if getting away from social media is what you need to do, well, do it!

I’m happy to say that I’m a little over twelve thousand words into my twenty thousand goal. I’ve also started my second round of 21 day fix extreme with my fitness group and I feel absolutely refreshed and ready after taking this past week off.

So, take some YOU TIME!

I’m currently taking a media/publishing course which I’m looking forward to because I have a few short stories that are ready for publishing and this course will surely help guide me in the right direction of getting that started.

To all my writers, if you have anything published, what pointers do you have for me in publishing a YA short to perhaps a journal?

Thanks!!

New Yoga Pants!

It’s been a while since the last time I’ve purchased workout clothes and after a month of clean eating and Piyo madness, weight was lost and inches dropped! It was time for a new pair of pants for this lady!

I’ve always purchased yoga pants from Victoria’s Secret Pink but they just don’t quite do it for me anymore. I was searching for a more durable fabric, slim fitting but not suffocating feel at a reasonable price. We know that yoga pants can be pretty pricy, they range from forty to over a hundred dollars!

A friend suggested I give the new line Fabletics, by Kate Hudson a try. I must say I was a bit skeptical at first but when I signed up, they offer quite the discount off your first purchase! I was mostly in search of leggings so I bought one pair to try them out.

I am so in love with these leggings!! The fabric is fabulous! It hugs your body without feeling too tight, it compliments your shape with the high waist band, helping with tummy support as well. ūüôā

I wore these out for a quick grocery shop and felt amazing walking around in these.

They move easily with my body through each pose and workout!

Needless to say, I’ll be purchasing more of these and keeping my monthly subscription with Fabletics!

Did the word subscription frighten you? No need! While you are a VIP member, you choose your style of clothing, allowing Fabletics¬†stylists to hand pick amazing ensembles for you! An entire outfit will be sent to you monthly starting at $49.95. That’s a pretty sweet deal since many places offer that price for only one item! If you don’t want to be charged that month, all you have to do is log in to your account by the 5th of every month and skip the month. You can continue to skip each month until you’re ready to make the purchase!
