Afternoon Health Blogging- What a wonderful life!

It’s a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Sunny San Diego today, and I’m so blessed to be able to take a few hours by this classy fountain and blog my little Fitspirational Heart out!

Afternoon Blogging

I just finished a bowl of fresh hearty tomato basil soup at the quaint cafe next door, and it was just enough to fill my tummy for the next few fabulous hours. I’m lucky to have snagged this awesome spot next to the fountain, the sound of the water falling is perfect blogging music.

Not going to lie, this fountain next to me is looking pretty cold and tempting… if there wasn’t a group of seventy-something year old golden girls sitting at the table next to me, I’d dive right in!

On that note- I’ve decided that I’m going to use the rest of my college free summer to pour my heart and soul into my cyber baby TheFitspirationalBlonde.com! Get excited guys, I have spectacular God-sized dreams for this fabulous blog.

Many more fountain-side days of blogging to come this summer 🙂 20130713_144845

Improve your mental health- get lost in a book! (Plus a bowl of hearty vegetable soup)

There is seriously nothing like getting lost in a great book, with a bowl of healthy vegetable soup by your side!

Honestly, it feels like I haven’t had the time to read a good book in a long time. I miss the feeling of sitting at the edge of my seat, anxiously turning pages just to see what could possibly happen next.

Reading is a great way to keep your mental health sane. Finding an amazing book is a mental escape from reality; weather you have time or not, you need it. Give yourself a break! One minute you’re in your room eating a bowl of protein packed vegetable soup, and the next your in a Shack, in the middle of nowhere, about to meet Jesus!

I’m only on page 28 of the book “The Shack” by WM Paul Young, and I’m already hooked.

Try it out, take a stress free approach to improving your mental health, and get lost throughout the pages of new book.

Turn off your phone for once, stop thinking about all the emails you have to send later  and live in the moment with nothing but you and your imagination. Maybe a bowl of your favorite healthy soup to keep your belly full and your mind active too. That’s a challenge!

I’ve been making fresh fruit smoothies every morning for 3 years now, and this is by far the most delicious one I’ve ever created.

Ingredients:
Cantalope
Peaches
Bananas
1 tsp vanilla creamer
1/2 cup apple juice
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup ice

It has a very rich and creamy flavor to it. The perfect way to kick off a beautiful Sunday morning before church!
