Googles "Cheap Tickets South"

Well hello everyone!

If you live quite far north of the equator like I do, then it's likely you have experienced the mid-winter blues. If you're anything like me, you think that snow is for Christmas, and then it can kindly go away forever. I am really having those feels right about now. If you've been following the news at all, you will see that New England has been hit with some big winter storms this past week, and I don't live too far from New England! This is about the time that I'm ready to pack up and move to Florida, or Australia, or any other equally warm place! The fact that my work keeps getting cancelled is not helping as well, and I'm starting to go a little bit shack wacky.

How do you keep busy when you're snowed in! Any tips would be greatly appreciated....

Until next time!

Okay, so I didn't promise that I'd blog about this all the time, but I also never said I wouldn't at all either! 

Here I sit, on the couch. After downloading the "couch-to-5k" app, I have been gung ho to start running for a couple of days now. So tonight, although I have a wicked cold, I laced up my running shoes and hopped on the treadmill. I should also have mentioned that I have never ran a day in my life. Armed with my fitspiration playlist and my bottle of water, I did just what the app told me to do... A brisk walk. Hmmm! This is not so hard! But....

After about 5 minutes, a little voice chimed in through my headphones... "Let's jog!" Whoa there Nelly, one step at a time here. But I did as I was told and quickened my pace. It took about one minute for me to start feeling light headed, and as soon as the cheerful lady said "walk" again, it was off the treadmill for me.

So we're back to where we started. Back on the couch, I'm kind of feeling like I failed. Surely it can't be that hard to walk for 1.5 minutes, run for one, and so on... Can it? Only time will tell.

How do you motivate yourself to do something you've really been dreading? Any tips appreciated...

Until next time!

Something Big....

Hello everyone!

Welcome back to Liv Loves. It's been one hell of a few months, but I had some spare seconds so I thought I'd check in!

"It's like that feeling when you're 'bout to win the medal, and you worked so hard that you knew you wouldn't settle,"

'Something Big' by Shawn Mendes is one of my favourite songs right now, and not just because he is a fellow Canadian! I've had a feeling for some time now that 2015 is going to be a good year for a few reasons...

In 2015, I am going to get healthy. I have said this so many times before, but this year I really mean it. They say that there has to be a moment when you just decide, and that's the end of it. Well, I've decided and I mean it! Last year I wanted to lose weight, and blog about it to keep me accountable. But then if I didn't lose weight or didn't have time to blog, I felt double bad. So I won't say I'm going to blog about it this time, I'm just going to do it!

But that's not the only thing that's going to happen in 2015. This year, I am going to...

- see a dermatologist about finally getting my face cleared up;
- participate in a missions trip to a place I LOVE (post here);
- see 1D in concert again with amazing friends; and

I feel like I've been fighting (and losing) an uphill battle for the past year or so. But now it's time to turn it around for the better. Let's do this together! Let me know your goals for 2015 :)

Until next time,
Liv <3
