I’m so pumped to be announcing the first personal growth challenge in this series — 30 Active Days. The title is pretty self-explanatory but there’s a few stipulations or conditions, if you will, that I want to share. Keep in mind, these are the “rules” I’m playing by, but this is a PERSONAL growth challenge so be sure to set realistic, attainable guidelines for yourself and your life.
There’s a famous quote, I’m sure you’ve heard, that goes something like “The only person you should strive to be better than is the person you were yesterday.”
I’m really excited to share these pictures and numbers with you… but I’m also scared to death. It’s like saying it out loud and sharing it like this is in some way an admission of guilt when really I should look at it like a triumph. A win.
This was hands down my favorite way to eat chicken. I would pair it with caesar salad and it would literally be a meal of all my favorite things. Are you wondering why I’m talking in past tense?
Charcoal peel-off masks are all the rage right now. Unfortunately, they also aren’t getting the best reviews. Chances are you’ve seen at least one video floating around Facebook or YouTube of some unsuspecting person trying to peel one of these bad boys of their face, but having a less than stellar experience. One thing I noticed, though, was all of these masks came from questionable companies overseas. I found one that’s made by the Shoppers Drugmart Life brand right here in North America, so I thought I would try it out and see how it compares.
Minimalist practices can be applied to many aspects of your life, not just your physical belongings. Considering how much time we spend digitally connected, minimizing the digital clutter in your life can be incredibly beneficial. Simplifying and streamlining your digital life will help limit the amount of time you spend in from of a screen and increase the amount you have to spend living your best life.
I’m going to drop some truth on you guys. Before going low carb I freaking LOVED fried chicken. I don’t even know why I’m talking in past tense. I’m sure I still love fried chicken. 4 months into my Keto journey, I decided it was time to try and recreate (somewhat) that salty crunchy goodness. I needed to make some low carb crispy chicken.
When it comes to quitting smoking, there’s a plethora of information available about the benefits and tips to help you succeed. We hear about the normal side effects and challenges of kicking a nicotine addiction like being a bit irritated or how we just need to keep our hands busy. I’m telling you right now, though, there are some weird side effects of quitting smoking that I was not prepped for.
I’m so excited to finally share my first recipe post with you guys! I used to be such a shitty cook. Dinner most nights was a raw veggie paired with some kind of meat or a box of whatever. Any sauces or additives were store bought and from jar or package. There were so many readily-available foods that I honestly though I didn’t need to learn how to cook actual recipes, using whole ingredients. When I switched to Keto (Low-Carb) it was quite a wake-up call.
If you’ve been around since the beginning of my venture into blogging, you’ve likely seen the transformation from The Modern Mommy to Millennial Mom, and now to By Bri. First, thank you. Second, I want to explain myself.
