Farewell to my readers but not to the healthy habits

The day has come where a farewell is due for all of you who have followed me throughout this blog. I have learned so much in such a short amount of time. I am hoping that I will be able to post in here from time to time. But working and going to school full-time doesn’t always leave all the time in the world to do this. This blog informed me on things that I may have already knew but took it into greater detail, like what exactly Green Tea can do for you.

My favorite part of this experience was finally trying out yoga. The real kind of yoga not the kind that you do in your living room OnDemand. My trip to Yoga Inspired in Pitman was such a great experience that I will always take with me. Not only did it open me up to a whole new world of exercise but it gave me some self-confidence. After stumbling into class a minute late and being a bit embarrassed they had to move around mats so I could fit in the room I started to get comfortable. And the next time I went I even sat in the front (and arrived a few minutes earlier)! After trying it for the first time I’m not afraid to try yoga at different studios as well and that’s something I’m really excited about doing!

My final post about a woman I met from a Weight Watchers meeting really inspired me and for that it was my favorite post. She proves that even though she has been overweight for the majority of her life that’s in her past. You are the author of your story and she chose to start a new chapter and better herself for not only her own self-confidence but for her children.

Besides healthy habits this blog has taught me a good bit about journalism. Firstly always, and I mean ALWAYS, have a back-up plan. Numerous times on numerous occasions I was struggling to get a post in because my first plan back fired. One of those times was my interview with Sophia. Although that three-year-old is incredibly adorable she wasn’t an expert on the topic. But her description of that yogurt and how much she loved dance class was super cute!

Speaking of frozen yogurt, my trip to the YOGO Factory in Turnersville was definitely one of my favorite parts too. It sparked my taste buds and converted me into a fro-yo girl for life. I enjoy it better than ice cream and I can thank this blog for that.

I just want to thank all of you for supporting me through this journey. It means the world and I hope to keep contributing to this blog.

Two Cups of Green Tea A Day Keeps The Doctor Away: Tazo Zen Green Tea

Since it is St. Patrick’s Day I was feeling a big green. First thing that comes to mind is my favorite morning, midday, nighttime, anything treat…green tea. I have tried so many brands of green tea but this one is by far my favorite. Tazo Zen Green Tea to me is heaven in a cup.

I first got a cup of Zen at Starbucks. Believe it or not I hated it. Then, my mom brought it home and I gave it another shot. I left the tea bag in for the duration of the time I drank it and it tasted delicious! It is a mix of lemongrass and spearmint.
