What's going on?

Blogging is taking a break during my last semester for this degree. I'm working 2 jobs, taking full time classes, giving pitching lessons, and trying to keep up with church, family, and household obligations as well. 
Never Finished will resume even better than before this JUNE.

I hope you're as excited as I am!

All my love,
~M

Cupid's Crackers!

Today I bring you a super easy (almost stupid easy) Valentine's Day sweet treat for your sweetheart! 

I named it "Cupid's Crackers" because I'm corny like that. It's fun, right? :D
The idea is just a graham cracker topped with pink marshmallow goo and even more sugary sweetness on top. Yum!

How to Play the CVS Game



The other day, I went to CVS and got $41.13 worth of stuff for only $25.94! Stuff like deodorant, foundation, concealer, toothpaste, cotton rounds, and makeup removing wipes. How did I do it? Well, it really isn't as difficult as you might think. I didn't spend hours clipping coupons. All I did was use a little strategy to find ways to get things I actually want and need that were already marked down some, with coupons that are right in the CVS store!

Awesome Things from January 2014

Happy February!

I know I've been slacking on posting this month *hangs head in shame* but please forgive me! I've been busy and blogging was farther down on the priority list than other things I wanted needed to do. Not that it's a chore. I truly enjoy it.

Anyway, today I bring you a snapshot into everything I didn't post this month. Also known as- Monthly Favorites! These are just a few of the awesome things I want to share with you that I discovered or rediscovered in January. I'd love to hear about some of your favorite things from the month. Here are mine:

Getting Healthy in EVERY Area of Life

With the new year upon us, it is easy for all of our attention to be on losing weight or beginning some kind of new regimen to get ourselves healthy physically.

I have nothing against physical health. In fact, I have made some changes in my lifestyle to help my physical health and am really enjoying what's happening so far.

But physical health is not the only piece of the puzzle. Life is one big balancing act. Every aspect of life affects the other parts. What I mean is this: spiritual, social, and mental health are each as important as physical health, and each is tied to one another. Feeling inadequate in the social realm of health can negatively affect your physical health, and vice versa.

Tips for Healthy Weight

According to Policy Mic, the top New Years Resolution is to exercise more and eat better. That comes as no surprise. You probably also aren't surprised to learn that most gym memberships purchased at the beginning of the year go unused and gym attendance is back to normal by the middle of February. So what can you do to make sure that quitter isn't you? 

Like most things in life, it's good to focus on gradual lifestyle changes rather than a quick fix. Going on some crash diet and hardcore exercise plan for a month won't give you the results you want because as soon as that month is up, you'll be back to your old habits and back into your old stretchy pants.

After much research and thought, I have compiled a list of tips that are NOT for a quick fix. These are things to incorporate into your everyday life that will be a good start for getting healthy, which is more important than your appearance anyway. Good news though- leading a healthy lifestyle might just scare away some of those inches on your thigh or belly pooch anyway. Victory to all!




Some of this info is from personal experience, but much of it was taken from HowStuffWorksHelpGuide, and ChooseMyPlate which are all great resources if you want more info.
