Last 90 Days

Hey everyone and happy Friday! So glad the weekend is almost here... this week has been a doozy! I've been thinking a lot about something so I wanted to share it with you all. Have you heard about Rachel Hollis' Last 90 days initiative?? I am super excited about it so I decided that it's time to announce to the world that I am committing to the Last 90 days! Well not really the world... more like all 200 of you who read this blog :) lol

As we know this time of year means over indulging on food and drinks because there are parties galore and tons of reasons to eat all the sweets. It's such a busy time that it's so easy to let our health priorities go to the wayside. I have to admit that this has been a rough year for me on the health front and it's sucks (for lack of a better word) to watch myself gain so much weight. I blame my knee and all the hormones I've been on but I know I can control what I eat regardless if I am cleared to workout or not. So the Last 90 Days couldn't have come at a better time for me.

So here's the gist...

One-Wake up an hour earlier to make time for yourself. 

This one is rough for me because I already get up at 5:30 and I can't imagine getting up any earlier. I am going to set myself a more realistic goal of 30 minutes. This will give me time to journal and to do my devotionals. I have definitely let those two very important parts of my life go to the wayside.

Two- Workout for at least 30 minutes a day.

I am still in physical therapy for my knee so working out how I used to is a no-go. I am going to do my physical therapy exercises at home and walk each night though. I reeeeally miss working out but I know that my knee just can't take it right now. 

Three- Drink half of your body weight in ounces of water.

I am terrible at drinking enough water when I'm at school. All my teacher friends know that there really isn't time to use the restroom other than our prep and lunch so that makes drinking water a little tough. I just need to be more strategic about when I drink water to make sure I am staying hydrated. The amount of headaches I have had lately is ridiculous and I know it's from the lack of water. 

Four- Eliminate one food category that you shouldn't be eating.

This is a hard one for me (I've said that about each one haha) but I think it might be Starbucks. Now let me add a little "but" to this one. I will still be drinking it once a week but not almost daily like I am now. Yikes, my habit has gotten bad. This one will save me money and calories!

Five- Gratitude journal

I used to do this and it was such a good practice. Rachel Hollis says that you can't be anxious when you are in a state of gratitude and she is right. I know I need to live more in the "thankful" state than the-worry-about-everything-because-it's-not-going-according-to-my-plan state. 

So who is with me on this journey to a healthy you for the last 90 days of the year?? I think it will really help me to feel grounded during this time of craziness. If you want more info then check out the videos by Rachel Hollis that give you a little more insight and inspiration for the Last 90 Days!

Have a great day!


  1. I went to this place with local friends and we had a blast at event venue here. The long happy hour definitely ensures a full upstairs, but I'd recommend the quieter downstairs to enjoy your stuffed burger and fries!
