After yesterday’s tragic event in Las Vegas with senseless killing of 50+ and over 500 injured, my head and heart is numb. Sure, I could use my little struggle platform to share my political opinion, but I would rather not. If you want a little insight into my my opinions, you should follow me on Twitter. FYI, on Twitter, I’m sarcastically funny, love responding with GIFs, and RTs are my jam. Unfortunately, like on Twitter, there are days when you just want and need to withdraw from your everyday life. For days like that, I strongly encourage you to take a mental health day.
What is a mental health day, you ask? Well, it’s kind of like a personal day, but it’s suggested to take on days when your mind needs a break. For example, my co-worker took a personal/mental health day the after the election. Completely justified, if you ask me and our manager. The next question you might be asking yourself is “What does one do when taking a mental health day?” Well, keep reading for the answer.
Cinco de Mayo is one of those holidays when people enjoy tasty food and festive drinks, but mainly the drinks. Last year, I went out to for a night of drinks with some coworkers, which was fun and needed. This year, I think my sister and I are going to stay in and have our own little Cinco de Mayo Girl’s Night In. After much consideration, I think I’ve come with the perfect healthy Cinco de Mayo menu for home.
I’ve been some form of “plus-size” all my life. However, a few years ago, I finally learned to move more. I even had a trainer for awhile. Although I still don’t workout as much as I should, but I’ve worked out more in the past few years more than I did in the previous 30. Sad. What’s even sadder than that were the plus size workout clothes. They were usually boring, unexciting, and ill fitting. Pretty much dull sweat suits and black spandex pants. Boring. Thankfully, times have changed and now you can actually cute plus size athletic wear.
When the weather starts getting a little warmer and inviting, my desire to get out and get moving increases. Although I wish I had this desire all the time, it’s been intense this year. So, I’ve shopping for new athletic gear that I can wear comfortable and look cute while I attempt to melt some weight off. During this process, I’ve discovered some brands that make some pretty stylish and accessible workout clothing in plus sizes. When I say “stylish”, I mean really stylish!
