Dear Readers,

I’m writing this on yet another snow day! I don’t think we’ve gone a full week since we came back from winter break, but I’m not complaining. Everything is going really well, and the most exciting thing going on is Cinderella auditions (if we have school) tomorrow! Even though drama season takes up all my free time, I honestly wouldn’t give it up.

So this past weekend I took a lot of my clothes that either didn’t fit or I kept but never wore up to a consignment store in Champaign and ...

Dear Readers, I didn’t realize there were so many of you! I honestly thought the only person who kept up with this blog was probably like, my Granna (she deserves a shoutout for always reading and complimenting my blogs). However, this past week I was told by a surprising amount of people that they had been keeping up with and enjoying my blog. Thank you for that! ☺

Gratuities aside, I’d like to give you a few helpful tips that I have recently learned! Here they are in a convenient list form for your enjoyment.

• Go workout with a ...

Dear Readers,

So, this week has been great so far, and when I say great, I mean really great! Unfortunately, Zumba hasn’t been a part of my week, but I have been trying some of the yoga I learned at my house. I discovered this week that whether I’m working out at the Y relaxing into Child’s Pose in my room, exercise helps make any day better.

Another great part of this week was realizing my clothes are getting loose. I bought a new skirt at the beginning of December, and after today it’ll be retired ...

Dear Readers,

So this past weekend I went to Theatre Fest with my drama club! It was pretty great and included basically all of my favorite things rolled into a thrilling adventure with some of my best friends. The group I spent most of my time with saw a total of 7 productions, and unfortunately only went to one (full) class. I actually was planning on trying something called “Yogalates”, (a combination of yoga and pilates), but I couldn’t talk anyone into going with me. Apparently, exercise wasn’t on the top of anyone’s priority list.

However, everything ...

Dear Readers,

I’m writing to you from the North Pole! (Well...that’s what it feels like anyway.) I have been cooped up in the house for what feels like ages, and with the sub zero temperatures and mountains of snow, it’s not like getting out is much of an option. I’m getting a touch of cabin fever, but at least in my own home I don’t have to worry about unhealthy eating: healthy food is all we have around here!

With healthy food taken care of, my main concern has been getting some exercise. I ...

Dear Readers,

Happy New Year! I can’t believe how quickly this new year arrived, but here it is, a chance to start fresh, a clean slate! People make fun of New Year’s resolutions, but wouldn’t you like for this to be the year that you prove everyone wrong? This could be the year you finally accomplish what you’ve been wanting to for ages.

I began working toward my fitness goal before the New Year began, because I believe I’ll be more likely to keep it. I have a funny story about that actually! Last night ...

Dear Readers,

I’m writing to you from Kentucky after spending the day with my wonderful family. This Christmas was awesome, as usual, because as everyone knows “there’s no place like home for the holidays”. Over the course of the past two days, I’ve been in three different states and spent time with an innumerable amount of cousins, all while attempting to kept my eating in check.

My mom and I are always looking out for each other, reminding one another “Remember- we’ll be eating again in an hour” and “If you want some of Granna’s ...

Dear Readers,

Attention: I AM OFFICIALLY ON CHRISTMAS BREAK! And I am so totally thrilled. Today was my last day of school this week, and now it’s time to relax! However, relaxing does not mean I will be skipping out on my trips to the Y. Those must continue throughout the break so I don’t have to be rolled back to school in January.

Since last week, I’ve been to the Y frequently, and one of the best times I had was with my good friend and “personal trainer” Hunter! We happened to show up at the ...

Dear Readers,

It’s Allie here! Can you even believe how close it’s getting to Christmas already? I’m so excited! I just got back from a workout at the Y, so I’m also excited about that! Tonight’s workout was great; I’m starting to feel stronger already.

This past week was “Fitness Week” in P.E.! If you don’t remember what that is, allow me to assist you. It is usually a tortuous week full of humiliating physical assessments performed in front of your classmates. However, this time was different. This time I showed “Fitness ...

Dear Readers, It’s me, Allie! I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving! I know I did. I visited with family, had a girl’s night and sleepover with my long-time best friend, braved the crowds of Black Friday with my brother and cousins, and saw my grandparents, uncle, and cousin off on their mission trip to Uganda! It was great to catch up with everyone and to spend time in my hometown where we do things a little differently than up here in Mattoon. (I’m from Kentucky for those of you who don’t know ☺ ).

So after ...
