Hit the Road Jack: Road Trip from DC to CO

Pikes Peak from Garden of the Gods

Pikes Peak from Garden of the Gods

Hi Bedheads! I’m finally settled back into a semi-normal routine – sorry for my absence on the blog! I never officially talked about the road trip I went on last week, but I made it back in once piece and it was a great success. The reason behind my trip was to help relocate my brother from Germantown, MD (just outside of Washington, D.C.) to Colorado Springs, CO.

Below is my experience on the road and at each of the stops we made along the way.

Here is my list of hits and misses from last night…

Happy 2015, Blogging in Bed followers! I am so stoked (and honored) that Meghan & Maria asked me to provide you with ways to maintain the New Year, Better You.

Making lifestyle changes can be exciting, but can be just as overwhelming. The key to success starts with keeping your goals small & detailed, and taking the changes on one at a time. Don’t try to do everything at once. Small, consistent changes add up! (I still continue to remind myself of this regularly, so you’re not alone)

I’ve put together a few of my favorite beginner tips to help you stay on track:

  • Kick-start your morning with lemon water
    Drink an 8oz glass of warm/room temperature water with the juice of half a lemon first thing in the morning. Yes, even before the caffeine hits your lips! Why you ask? Here are just some of the key benefits to this easy morning ritual:
