Welcome to the new Strength and Sunshine! Let me tell you…this has been a really difficult, frustrating, and upsetting process. Things are still in the works, but then main thing is here and I didn’t feel like waiting any longer to let this new blog go live. Right now I am waiting on Host Gator to resolve some transfer problems (16 of my posts are not switching over…weird), so if for some reason you happen to randomly search one of them, that’s why it’s not showing up. I also need to go back and reset featured images and small things like that. I am also working on my pages and will slowly make navigation a lot better. So over the next few weeks things will still be changing, but this is my new home now! Let me know if you have any suggestions or find any bugs. I want you feedback!
I all this chaos, there are more huge change son the horizon. I have one more week left before I am shipped off to my new life in DC. ONE WEEK! Nothing is packed and I have no idea what I am doing. I feel like I am going crazy right now so bare with me next week. There are just so many things to get done and it’s crunch time. I’m scared, no I’m not scared, I’m terrified. I’ve just got to take every hour left one at a time and stay focused and as calm as possible. I mean, this is my last weekend at home…until winter break! Man, I’ll just talk more about this next week, let’s just enjoy some great reads while we can!
Wednesday: Grilled Vegan Margherita Pizza
Thursday: My 7 (Non)Essential Yoga Essentials
Blog Posts and Links I loved this week:
Life, Mind, Body, Spirit:
Your past does not define you or reflect who you are now.
I really need these right about now.
No, you’re not. You don’t have to love every part of your being. It’s okay!
Never think you’re not enough or let someone make you feel like your not.
O, the change is coming for me!
So important to remember this.
Yes! This is so true!
Great round-up of some awesome sweat sessions!
Everything about running!
I always think I like hiking and the wilderness…but I really don’t when I am actually out there.
Just keep showing up and be accountable. This is progress in itself.
Great read on how far Char takes her vegan lifestyle.
For all of you “wannabe” bakers…you can do! Trust me 😉
It is not hard to eat healthy, damn it!

This is kinda scary…
Guess what? It is just being real and healthy!
I agree here. ex-vegans are taking it a bit to far.
Blogging, Social Media, Technology:
That funny little heart…
I know I could majorly benefit from one right now…but it is so scary and hard.
How To be original in your blogging
I think I am all for always keeping comments open. but I feel some bloggers might as well never have them open since they NEVER respond (or have a comment notification system…)
Well I hope it can be done.
Don’t compare your inside to someone else’s outside.
If you don’t want to read a sponsored post, don’t read it. Simple as that. It Doesn’t matter.
Instagram is becoming one of the most important platforms for bloggers and influencers to have!
I’m not even a “full-time” blogger and I still feel these things.
The secret! Now all I need is Photoshop…
First step is to get yourself out there and build a portfolio.
Um, she took the words right out of my mouth…or my thoughts out of my head!
Hahaha, yes! My life!
I think I should great my roommates like “Hi! Don’t touch my food and keep your crumbs away from…everything!” Haha 😉

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ So honored to hear that I am inspiring someone! This really made my day!
+ The blog is finally (semi) done. This thing has been 40% of my stress all summer. No good. And it still isn’t complete, but at least it is getting there!
So tell me:
+ Tell me you top 5 MUST bring items to college as a freshman. (Nothing obvious…I’ve got those!)
+ Feedback on the new look? Do you like it?
+ What will you be doing this weekend? Any crazy planning, prepping, etc.?
