My Weekly Fitness Routine

Hello Loves,

My fitness journey continues and, I am making some amazing progress. I have lost about 12 pounds and I am that much closer to my goals to be a fit individual. This week I have been slacking in the fitness department mostly, because I have been writing so many blog posts and pet sitting. It was also really warm out and I wasn’t running/walking in 80-90 degree Fahrenheit weather. I did bring my yoga mat and kettle bell with me which, I will be using for the next couple of days. I am getting my wisdom teeth removed in a few days so, I’m thinking I will be down for the count fitness wise for about three days. My normal fitness routine is below along with my new favorite YouTuber who focuses on fitness.

I will start wearing my heart rate monitor and, fitbit again.

Have an enlightening and, adventurous day,

Here are my favorite gems for traveling, saving money and, so much more!

Airbnb: This is my favorite way to travel. While in Italy we saved so much money using Airbnb and stayed in an amzing apartment. Airbnb is much cheaper than a hotel and, you can filter what you need for your trip. You can get an entire house or, a room in a house. It’s customized to your needs.

How Most Bloggers Go From Making $0 To Making Some Cash As A Blog : Blogging can be a very challenging experience and, I have been working very hard to understand what I need to go from $0 to $50,000 plus a year. I’ve learned a lot has to do with affilate links and, marketing. It can get a bit confusing all you can do is research and, continue to learn.

Ibotta: Clip coupons no more! This app has all the coupons you want minus the many hours of coupon clipping. I even saw 1% off ebay! Ibotta helps you save money on groceries, mobile shopping, travel and, so much more! You also get $10 just for signing up through my account. 

Ebates: Get the best deals on Ebates while collecting money! Invite friends and, get $5 bonus for each friend that signs up. Who doesn’t love building up cash to shop!

Swagbucks: Earn Swagbuck for shopping or, taking surveys. Get rewards for shopping.

I posted this on Instagram and really depicts how I feel about ethical living and, the fashion industry. Let’s be the change that we want to be in the world!

Do you care where your clothing is coming from, who is making it, how they live, and the impact that it is having on the environment.  Most people's answer would be NO. This however, closed minded view is the reason the fashion industry can get away with paying oversea workers .25-$4 a day to work just to make clothing for us. We who are careless in our purchases are hurting the workers and the environment. Well, I no longer stand for this injustice. I will not buy from unethical companies because I do not support how they chose to conduct their business. "We do what they want us to," a quote from a song by Bittersweet is all to accurate. Some of you will continue to buy your cheaply made clothing because you chose to close your minds and, if it doesn't directly affect you, you dismiss the problem. Although, it may not affect you directly it will affect future generations when this planet's water supply is unusable because we threw dye into it from fabric. And, when the landfills are stacked but, are now in our backyards because we consumed too much. "Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street. Fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."
Coco Chanel
