November Goals! And Chickbands giveaway!

November is the time to Kick it into gear!

So it seems like every month for the past few months, I am telling myself, "Okay this is the month!" And the month comes and goes, I don't make the changes I want... so November is going to be more formal with goal setting... And in December, we will see how I did!

This month I plan do focus on blogging, eating, running, and being more organized in my classroom. 

  1. Blog/Branding: New blog brand image has been created, but now it is time to use it! I also need to blog more often. I would like to blog at least 3 times a week. I would like to vlog once a week at least.
  2. Food: It is time to start writing down what I eat. I plan to use I will put in what I eat even if I cheat. No skipping writing down the day because of one bad meal. This is something I typically do because I just don't want to see it. 
  3. Running: This is my month to prove I am a runner. My very first half marathon is the Lady's Speedstick Women's Half Marathon. I am going to run 10 miles tomorrow and try for 12 next Sunday with at least 3 runs during the week for about 3-5 miles. I will keep track with my Nike + phone app (which I LOVE!)
  4. Work: I plan to get papers back to kids quicker and to stay late to ensure that my classroom stays organized.
What are your goals for November?? Share them with me! Maybe you can motivate me or someone else to try something new! Comment below!

Chickbands Giveaway!

Since I first started working out in January, I have been looking for a headband to hold my whispy fly-away hairs in place. I got lucky early on and found Chickbands. Their facebook page says, "Running, , spinning, body pump or chasing after your kids... these headbands will not slip! Each headband is backed with velvet which will keep it in place no matter what you are doing!"

And I will attest to that! I have THE worst issue with headbands, and this one stays on my head. It doesn't fly off and hit other people either (seriously, that did happen once with one of those elastic headbands) I can tell you that these are made with soft velvet and quality ribbon. I love them because you can choose your ribbon and make it something special to you. I have a Tampa Bay Rays one that I bought about 6 months ago, and I also now have one that was given to me to review and do this giveaway!  


  1. I use MyFitnessPal and it has really helped me stay on track. I think it is a great resource.

    1. I used it when I first started this journey, but I haven't in quite a while! Need to improve on that!!!

  2. i used ot use myfitnesspal but I always forgot to do some of it and it got annoying having to do it with everything! hope you can do better!

  3. I love etools from Weight Watchers. So much easier than counting calories!

  4. Just checking to see if there is anything annoying on your blog :)

  5. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon every day.
    It's always helpful to read content from other authors and
    practice a little something from their sites.
