Welcome to App Review Mondays. Every Monday I will review an app and it will be rated from 1-5 hearts. 1 being the worst and 5 being the best. I will highlight my personal experience with the app as well. I am not a paid spokesperson for any of these apps and any opinion is of my own. So let’s get started…
FIT Radio… I had heard something about it and downloaded it. Me personally, I like how Pandora introduces you to new music. This is more of a DJ style music selection app. Which I can’t say I’m a fan of. There is a voice that comes over the speakers and introduces you to the song… In a kind of coaching manner. I enjoy music to the fullest but I can’t get over the amount of brain power I have to use in order to pick a station or genre. There’s so much to choose from and it’s not the style of playback I want.
This app is available for download on the App Store for free and there is an option for a Premium upgrade.
My rating: ❤️
You read it right. It’s a pretty amazing thing for sure. I walked to the fridge and grabbed the coffee creamer we had just bought a week earlier. Something told me that I wasn’t going to be satisfied with buying this specific kind. I’m typically a Coffee-Mate kind of girl. And the point at which you put it in your coffee you become a believer in the power of it. Not much is needed for your coffee. It’s a far cry from International Delight which I feel you need way more of.
So when I walked into our local Stewart’s you can imagine my surprise to see this wonderful invention. It’s delicious. You control the sweetness of your coffee by the amount of sugar you add. Not by the amount of creamer. It’s perfection. Half & Half is wonderful because all of those ridiculous ingredients are not in it. It’s milk and cream. Can’t get any more simple than that.
I get so many questions all the time about what supplements to use when you’re trying to lose weight… This is more of a 3-part question and so the first part is this…. The supplements relative to my diet and weight loss are here. I will have more onhere very soon.

If you’re anything like I was a few months ago, you might have been in a rut. I had no idea where I was going when it came to fitness, and health. I know I loved to cook & learn new recipes; but portion control was a restraint I was lacking. Apparently so was the ability to ignore early morning cravings. I couldn’t pry my hands off of the refrigerator door at 3am. During the day was fine, but it was late night that was posing the problem. When the topic of weight loss comes up, not eating after 7 is a common statement made by those hoping to lose some pounds. As unfortunate as it is, at 3 am; I am not necessarily coherent. And I feel like I am not able to process a common sense judgment such as leaving the refrigerator alone. In a search for a solution, I stumbled upon a post written by a guy who went through the same thing. And his solution? Write ‘are you really hungry or just bored or thirsty?’ on a piece of paper and tape it on the inside of the refrigerator. I did it and night one went well. The following nights did as well. I found myself waking up and grabbing water or an orange or some other piece of fruit. Which was better than the calorie-filled food I was searching for.
So… I worked out today. And its so ridiculous to think that I love eating Vanilla Ice Cream way more than I like to do a crunch. But then I look in my IG feed and secretly wish my body was back to the way it used to be. Bring on the hard work… I did Hammer & Chisel. I could only make it through half of the Chisel Balance (which is the first one you’re supposed to do according to the plan). I cant wait to see how this journey goes. I have tumbled up to a whopping 230lbs. And even though I don’t look like it, I feel it every day.
I am so excited to begin this journey. This blog is going to be a compilation of my favorite things. I love to cook, bake, DIY, paint. sew, travel, workout, discover new Life Hacks etc. I have so much to share with you so stay tuned!!
