Well, another Heedfest has come and gone and I can say that after the 24 Day Challenge from Advocare, I lost 10 pounds! I’m so happy with the results and recommend Advocare to anyone wanting to start a healthier lifestyle with a kick start in [...]
Here is a list of the foods I miss the most now that I’ve changed my ways:
1. Beer – I’ll admit, I haven’t completely given this up but I used to have more of it and I miss that.
2. Cupcakes, Whoopie Pies, Cookies, Cake – basically any baked good. I love cake [...]
I decided to try Advocare, and the cleanse was really challenging but very rewarding. Now that it’s over I’ve really learned to appreciate the foods I eat more than ever. It sort of got me to start thinking of food as fuel again, rather than purely entertainment, comfort, etc. I’ve cut most of the [...]
I avoided starting an actual diet for a long time, but I realized a while ago that I don’t eat all that well. An average week’s worth of dinners would include pizza, ravioli, pizza, spaghetti, mac and cheese, pizza, and going out. Obviously some weeks were better than others and we did get some fresh [...]
Friends, I would love to report that I have so far achieved great and promising success at my challenge to lose 25 pounds by Heedfest (an annual festival held in July) but, alas, I have not really lost any weight at all. It’s not all doom and gloom, however. In the process of trying to [...]
It was a long road but I’ve finished listening to every single Robert Pollard-related song, album, EP, etc. ever released as of April 14, 2012. (Yes, that includes the Jon the Croc single.) If you didn’t think I’d make it, I can’t blame you because at 1,771 songs totaling 2 full days, 21 [...]
I’m fast approaching the halfway point, so I thought I would share what I’ve encountered so far on this journey (if you have no idea what I’m talking about, read this first):

What better way to kick off Hot by Heedfest than to attempt the rigorous Alpha Omega journey of Robert Pollard’s music? The rules are unnervingly simple: Listen to all Robert Pollard releases back to back [...]
The arrival of summer ushers in many dreaded things – bugs, sunburns, all of the awkward times you try to go swimsuit shopping, actually having to wear said swim suit… But summer brings many delightful things, too. Namely, the ability to sit outside comfortably, lighter clothing, an increase in the likelihood that real [...]
President’s Day is a great day to reflect on the influence the presidents of the past have had on our lives…but it’s also a great day to get back into crafting (for me since elementary school). Businesses are open but I (along with my sister Beth, and her friend [well, my friend too - if [...]
Welcome!I love Dayton, I've lived here for all of my 26 years and don't plan on settling anywhere else. I started this blog as a way to showcase the best of Dayton (as seen through my perspective) and also to share some of the things that occupy space in my mind, namely beauty, home decor, quotes, and various aspects of my life.
