Pokemon Go.

I have caved.

I’ve never been interested in Pokemon. Being born in the early 1980s, the whole Pokemon craze happened after I was “too cool” for it. I always thought it was super lame. Until Pokemon Go. I recommend playing the game if you’re interested in fitness. Just be sure to be smart about it. Don’t go in people’s yards, don’t meet up with people you don’t know, etc. Use common sense. But GET THOSE POKEMON!

In the last 72 hours, according to my FitBit, my stats are:

I’ve walked 18.1 miles.
I’ve taken 33,975 steps.
I’ve burned 10,190 calories.
I’ve had 200 active minutes.

That is awesome – it’s so much more than I’ve been doing. I get up, I walk. I work. I pick up Brooklyn and we go hunting Pokemon. It’s just fun! I hate that it’s taken a game to get me inspired, but it is what it is. At least I’m being active! On top of this, I’ve really paid attention to my diet and really made smart choices 🙂

My meals today:

Breakfast: Spirutein protein shake
Lunch: Minestrone with a pulled pork quesadilla (all homemade)
Dinner: Pork stir fry with veggies and quinoa


Detox drink: 2 x
Water: 72 ounces of cucumber lemon water + 16 oz of water

I believe that the greatest gift you can give your family and the world is a healthy you. –  Joyce Meyer

New Year, New Try

I’ve said it before, and chances are, I will say it again. However, I’ll say it again. I’m getting back on the wagon. The Healthy Wagon. The Blogging Wagon.

101 Stars Challenge

Here are the items on my 101 Stars Challenge that I accomplished during 2012 that I did not blog about:

Create an app – December, 2013
I didn’t publish it to the App Store, but my final project in my ePublication class was an App. I was quite proud of it, and because I had such a fun time doing it, I am creating a much larger, in depth app for my final capstone project.

Create a website
I created BJ McKinney Photography in August 2013.

Host a holiday
I did all the work on Thanksgiving in 2013. It was a lot of work. But it was fun 🙂

Move into my own place
I honestly don’t know why this was still on the list as I did this back in March of 2013.

In 2014, I will focus on my health. I hope to cross all of the Health section off. I’m currently sitting at a size I am not happy with, and although I had a great start to weight loss and living healthy last year, I fell off the wagon and always found excuses to stay off. No more. New year. No excuses.

Also in 2014, I am focusing on my hobby. Did you know I like to paint? Most people don’t. Below is my first painting of 2014. My boyfriend gave me the easel and supplies for Christmas. I’m looking forward to further explore this hobby in the new year.

Welcome to the new year! I hope you all enjoy reading my posts and following my journey. 🙂

I got the idea from a local paint and drink shop, but I did it at home.
