New Years Goals.

New Years Goals.

That time of year again! The end of the year! I guess world didn’t end, right? — and here I am making another list (I do love lists though) of things I want to “get done” in the next 365 days. This is actually a fun exercise for me. Change can be energizing, and something to look forward to whether it be travel or a new endeavor is important for just everyday motivation. Writing these goals down is even more powerful — in pen and ink for that matter. And now posting them on the Internet!

I’ve been keeping little journals tucked away in my giant purse making notes and ideas — writing down anything I need to do or something to write about later. It’s come in handy, even just to pick up something at the store.

So this year I have some big goals. The biggest one is more of a dream that needs to come true (not like marriage to Ryan Gosling) – but I’ve wanted to move for a few years now, but have stayed put — mostly for work, and love. Money really isn’t a huge issue, but could be if I choose to take another job or live in an expensive part of the country, which of course I am. Dream big.

So even if its December 31st and I am packing my bags it will be a success.

Although, in the midst of all that I would like to publish a small e-book of recipes I have made over the course of a few years blogging. Also, spend less time social networking online—and more working towards writing here and elsewhere. Also, reading about 4 books.

I didn’t put a whole lot of fitness/diet goals on here – because honestly that all falls into place when I am happy. I will binge eat chocolate all night long when I don’t want to talk about my negative feelings. But if my social life and group is affirming of the inside of me, the rest just doesn’t become an issue. I was healthiest when I was happiest. The two go hand in hand so in turn I am focusing on my relationships with others to help get me into a place outside my comfort zone where I can truly grow this year – relocation or not.

P.S. I’m obsessed with this video: Lights covers Drake…so many feels ❤


Hello. And welcome to Hardcore Healthy.

Alright, so I have started another blog. If you know me at all — you know I am a social media junkie. I love the Interwebs and all its (over)sharing options into our typical and mundane lives. Or maybe I should speak for myself…?

Actually the thing is my life isnt that typical or mundane. I suppose I choose to frame it as such since its not at my desired level of comfort or whatever status quo I’m suppose to living up to at 30 years old.

So in efforts to find a place to outlet one of my biggest passions + daily concerns on a little less professional level, l I have started this blog. Forgive all grammar and spelling errors to come wont you?

Health and wellness is pretty much always at the forefront of my mind. I am an avid sleeper and self proclaimed nutrition nerd. I could talk for hours about coconut milk and/or 10 ways to make kale. I am also a certified holistic health coach — which I wish I had more time to devote to be honest.

In the mean time, I am here to spew my adventures in health and everything else that make my heart swoon. Music has always been a constant. I rarely turn down live music — and you can find me trolling Pitchfork or I love art, cooking, tattoos, and the r/aww subreddit. I am diverse! Woo! Go me!

Hoping perhaps you all can get a kick out what I have to say and do here.

Comments always welcome.

Here’s the weekend in review:

  • Bought a humidifier in grave attempt to help heal breakouts + not have the ashy skin of dead person
  • Looked into digestive enzymes and bought a small bottle. Will keep posted on the results…
  • For more INFO in digestive enzymes here is a great article.
  • Listened to Day 6 + 7 of The Gluten Summit. (News flash — gluten is the devil)
  • On that note: trying to go gluten-free. Failing.
  • Obsessed with KIND bars! OBSESSED.
  • Slept most of today.
  • Bought new sheets — because I’m 30 and deserve organic cotton bed sheets, damnit.

Tomorrow is Monday and the last full week until holiday retail madness totally ensues. I haven’t bought a single Christmas gift. Chia pets and KIND Bars for everyone then!
