Liebster Award: Building Community

2 weeks ago, I was honored to receive a really cool blogger award. It basically gave me the opportunity to meet a few new bloggers and engage with a few new readers. How it works: Someone nominated me and gave me a list of questions, I answer those questions and pass it forward to a new set of bloggers.

I'm really into the idea of building a community. This award has helped me make a few more blogger friends. It has also helped me share a few things with my new community. Those friends are just as supportive as my in-person friends.

Thanks Deandra for nominating me for the Liebster Award. It’s been great getting to know you, and reading your blog. If you're a college student, check her out. She has tons of great tips for having fun, getting good grades, and saving money!

Liebster Award: Building Community - Award


What do you enjoy most about blogging? I really love talking to other bloggers and learning new things. 

What do you love most about yourself? I’m a total nerd so I love when I am able to figure something out for myself.

What is your favorite thing to do at the moment? Ooh, do I have to pick just one? My favorite thing to do is meal prep. It’s so much fun trying new foods and learning how different foods break down in the body to create energy.

Where do you see yourself in the future? How far in the future are we talking? In the near future, I’m graduating college, working a full-time job, traveling with my PTO. 10 years from now, I’ll probably be married. I kinda want to be a stay-at-home mom while my kids are small. I don’t sit still though so I’ll also be working on starting and maintaining my gym.

What is your blog’s mission? My blog’s mission is to help others manage their crazy hectic lives by focusing on total body wellness. 

Describe yourself in 3 words? Passionate, caring, driven

How do you motivate yourself? I’ve really been struggling with staying motivated lately. It’s really easy for me to stay motivated with the things that I see relevant to my future. The other times it’s knowing that I would hate to see my niece (my nephews too) quitting or not trying her hardest when she’s my age. So I try to be a good role model.

What is your favorite television show? That’s easy, Empire. 

What is the craziest thing you have ever done? I’m not that cool. Maybe not letting the rollercoaster latch things lock all the way. 

What is the weirdest food you’ve eaten? Once again, not that cool. Some of my Paleo creations were kinda weird.

How do you take/find photos for your blog? I mostly use stock images from unsplash. If not, I use my iPhone.
