20 Questions Blog Survey – Get to Know Me Better

1. Do you have any nicknames?

I did and I do. I used to be called gypsy. At the time that was what I went by anonymously on social media and it was my site identity for an old website I had. My family knows me as Suzi and when I used to write poetry I went by Suzen (which I have since started to pick back up again). Even considering a legal name change. But the nickname I’ve had the longest and the one some still know and call me by is Angel.

2. Are you named after anyone?

Not anyone. But I was named after a song that my Great Aunt loved called Susie Q. My Great Aunt Nany (Nancy) was more like my Grandmother than an Aunt. My Grandmother (Dads side) died very young and I never knew her and my Dads Aunt Nancy stepped up and took on the role.

3. Do you have any siblings?

Brother and sister, one of each.

4. Where did you grow up?

The suburbs of the Cleveland Ohio area.

5. What activities did you do in high school?

Hmmm. My first year of high school was the absolute worst. Once I settled in I was a rebellious cheer leader. I was the anti-cheerleader because I never fit into any of the norms of being a cheerleader lol. In my own quiet way I stood up for all the square pegs that didn’t fit into the round holes.

6. Where did you go to college?

I did not. Classroom education as in lectures and sitting for hours listening to someone talk was never a great learning experience for me. That’s changed over time, but I never had any real interest in college. Learning and education, yes, but college not so much.

7. What activities did you do in college?

N/A

8. What did you study in college?

N/A

9. What was your first job out of college?

N/A

10. What kind of music do you like?

I like a lot of different genre. I’m not a fan of country music at all. I don’t really listen to folk either. It all sounds like the same song to me. And I don’t delve too deep into rap. But I listen to everything from EDM to pop, r&b, metal, reggae, symphonic metal, ambient (meditation type music), house/trance and a bit of blues. I can appreciate opera and I like some musical theater.

11. What’s one hobby that you’d like to take up?

I plan to hike more than I have been. I’m hoping to take up violin soon and I would love to get back to pottery. I’ve been dabbling with learning Tibetan bowls lately.

12. What did you think you wanted to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a songwriter. I used to write a lot of poetry that was written like song material. But I think I’ve since found different outlets for the emotions that writing soothed because i haven’t been inspired to write like that for a long time.

13. What’s the biggest project on your to-do list?

Career changes for sure. My Reiki certifications I feel are just the beginning of a holistic therapy focus in my life. I’m looking into coordinating fields of education. I had also been thinking of heading back to school to become a vet tech but I worry that doing that job would be too heavy for me emotionally on a day to day basis. And I’m still thinking of studying something along the lines of nutrition. Now it’s all a case of narrowing the focus and making a plan of action for career changing.

14. Do you have an irrational fears?

Yeah. I’m terrified of fake haunted houses that they set up at Halloween, but I have no fear when it comes to real ones lol. I’m also a huge ocean lover that still can’t swim. Why? Because I’m scared of drowning. I know, I know, it makes zero sense. Which is why this is the year I am conquering that!

15. Have you ever traveled outside the country? If so, where?

Canada is as far as I’ve been. But planning is always on the agenda!

16. When’s your next vacation and where are you going?

Next planned vacations aren’t really vacations. We are planning a trip to Ohio to visit family and a trip back to Virginia to see our friends back there. We are planning a short trip to Maryland (a weekender) and are loosely planning weekend trips to New York City and Philadelphia PA. But at the moment no long or faraway trips are in the planning stages for this year.

17. Do you speak any other languages?

Not yet 😉

18. What’s one talent that you wish you had?

I wish I could play an instrument!! I also want to learn Tai Chi or or Qigong.

19. What’s something that you wish you could do one more time?

I would love to go back and explore more of Canada. And I want to go back to Colorado with the hubby!

20. If you weren’t in your current job, what would you want to be doing?

That list is long…
nutritionist
vet tech
massage therapist
life coach
counselor/therapist
coffee shop owner
holistic healthcare practitioner
(multiple areas of focus for overall mind/body healthcare)
holistic business owner
aromatherapist

Mandala Coloring Book

Mandala Coloring Book 2

1151426n6

Ever think of coloring as an adult? Every think of coloring as meditation? I’ve benefited from coloring to quiet my mind when I get stressed. It improves my focus and relaxes my whole body.

Benefits of coloring for adults:
  • Your brain enters a focused meditative state. Much like gazing at a candle but more active than that. 
  • Stress and anxiety levels have the potential to be lowered.
  • Negative thoughts release and positive feeling and emotions have room to grow.
  • Keeps you in the “now”. In the present which helps you attain mindfulness.
  • Unplugging from technology promotes creation over consumption
  • It’s an inexpensive way to add art and creativity into your life.
  • It can be a relaxed social gathering.
  • It’s portable!
How to Color a Mandala:

It’s easy!

  1. You will need crayons, pencil crayons, chalks, pastels, paint, or markers in a variety of colors.
  2. Print a mandala or stop at any dollar store, book store or craft shop and purchase a coloring book. You can find a ton on amazon.com too!
  3. Find a quiet and comfortable place where you can work comfortably with no distractions. You can even increase the meditative qualities by finding a spot in a nature where you won’t be disturbed. Here you can take in the scents and sounds while you create your art. 
  4. Color!

Try not to think too much about what colors you choose, or what’s matchy matchy. Let your instincts guide you. After you begin with the first color, the rest will follow naturally. Susan F. Fincher, the author of numerous mandala coloring books, says, “One color on the mandala invites another, like a guest who asks to bring his friend to your party.”

Life is getting pretty busy these days with the holistic health training’s I’m doing. And I don’t really plan on being a very active Arbonne Independent Consultant. In fact I took down most of what I posted about Arbonne products the last couple weeks because I just don’t have the time to put into being active with my business. It had been recommended to me that I add it to my blog. But after I did I realized the truth of the matter. Right now my business is sustaining itself just from word of mouth and my personal testimonials,  and that suits me just fine. As hard as I try I don’t have that MLM spirit in me lol.  But that being said I will always let people know I use the products and will help you find what’s right for you whether it be skincare, or a 30 day plan to change your nutrition habits, a new makeup makeover, or simply showing the best baby skin care you can get.

But in being honest with myself, it’s not the business direction I’m headed into. Eventually I want everything to mesh together as a whole holistic living package. I’m learning about essential oils and am super excited with how crystals and essential oils level up a Reiki session to another level. And in the end its not leaving me time to promote Arbonne the way I should as a consultant. For now I’m still an Independent Arbonne Consultant, and I will ALWAYS use the RE9 skin and body care lines, much of the cosmetics line and do often use items from the nutritional line. So if you need anything or are interested in what Arbonne has to offer as a company please just drop me a line or stop by the website!

I’m taking my Crystal Healers exam tomorrow and will be adding that certification to my holistic resume. I’m super excited about that! And I’m delving into essential oils and maybe aromatherapy next! In a couple months I will be taking level 2 attunements and practicals for Holy Fire Reiki and Archangel Light Reiki. And I will be offering my Reiki services through The Spiritual Gift Shoppe’s Reiki Clinics to gain confidence in my practice. Not too distant plans are to rent out part of the shoppe as a start up for my own business. And late summer I plan to retake a Usui Reiki level one class with a new teacher here in another part of New Jersey. I’m not required to in order to be part of their Reiki Clinics, but I feel spiritually urged to work with a new teach from square one. Things are starting to pick up momentum as far as this new path I’m on and it’s becoming a dream come true for me.

Loki’s medicine has been knocked down to one pill a day instead of two. I think his body is trying to adjust. But for the most part he is doing wayyyyyyy better than he was. He will never fully heal. It’s just something he’s always had issues with. But the treatment and diet change has made a world of difference and I know it’s made his life happier and longer. He’s not happy being the one cat in a one pet household now. But we aren’t sure how much borrowed time he’s on and we’d rather just focus on him for now.

I had a crazy dream the night before last that I was given a dog when my hubby was at work and I was trying to keep the dog hidden from him so he wouldn’t make me give the dog back lol.  In the dream I bonded with the dog instantly and felt my heart would shatter if he found out and I couldn’t keep him. I actually woke up so sad and ready to cry until I realized I was dreaming lol. Yes, I want a dog, and yeah my child mind wants it now. Then the adult brain kicks in and stops everything. *Sigh*

Meanwhile the apartment is settling down from all the negative energy from Tinkas cancer. We did a whole apartment clean and sweep thing to try and get the icky feeling out and good healing energy for Loki back in. The energy feels more stable in here now.

Sorry the blog and my posts have been very random and in a state of friction with all the changes. I feel that the dust is starting to settle here too. Hope everyone’s having an awesome week and has some fun weekend plans to look forward to!

Pizza

1

So I was going to get all serious with the Wednesday Word-prompt on Weekly PromptsCRAVING, but I decided to go with my “gut” and give full disclosure here. I am a pizzaholic. I can easily eat pizza every single day and nearly did when I was single. And I used to eat them the greasier and meatier the better. Carbs were everything to me.

Thankfully I don’t eat pizza every day anymore and I eat it much healthier now. BUT, yes I still always get cravings for it! But now my crusts are Cauliflower (usually). I’ve been loving on this one from Damn Delicious lately. And my cheese is usually Daiya, or I just go cheese-less. And I opt for more veggies and forgo even doing the vegan meats. But when I do want a “meat” pizza I usually opt for a Beyond Meat Lovers Pizza and either use the dough they call for, or I make it a cauliflower crust. Scroll down for the recipe!

I even indulge in an occasional fruit pizza using Daiya Cream Cheese Style Spread and a cookie dough crust. Excellent for parties or for your birthday!!

The While We’re Here Bucket List

We added and updated the list!!

We just moved from Virginia Beach, VA to the Jersey Shore this past December. My blog turned into a ghost town since the move and all while I was trying to revamp the blog . But we’ve been super busy moving, unpacking, 2 sick furbabies and just settling in and dealing with the winter blues for the first time in a long long time. But finally spring is starting to creep in and our kitties are feeling better so I thought it was time to dust off the blog and get back at it!

We will be here in New Jersy about 3 years sooooo we started making our New Jersey Bucket List!! We want to make the most out of the time we have here with as many adventures in NJ, New York and even the Philadelphia area of PA that we can.

Visit New Jersey

welcome.jpg

Lot’s of hiking! New Jersey has quite a few great areas for hiking. Looking forward to autumn hikes the most and hope to get in some of the Appalachian trail (think, Stairway to Heaven)!! The Appalachian Trail is gorgeous during the autumn months! Top 10 Hikes In New Jersey If you are into hiking, High Point State Park supposedly has nice loop hikes incorporating the AT trail through it. Plus it is the highest point in NJ which means some beautiful views during the fall season!

Beach hop. We want to spend time all along the Jersey Shore and maybe a bit up into New York checking out the different beaches and beach towns! We’ve kind of started as you’ve seen by some of my last blogs. Of course it’s been way too cold to get in real beach/ocean time or to see how crazy crowded the Jersey Shore beaches can get during tourist season. All 44 beaches in New Jersey, ranked worst to best

Daily fitness/nutrition goals. Can we say, slackers?? Between the move and my hubby traveling for work our nutrition and fitness has kind of gone down the toilet so to speak. So now it’s time to get our act together. This will include lots of hiking, yoga, and Les Mills programs. This much we figured out before the move, the combo of these three things WORKS to add strength while making us lean and fit. My hubs will add a bit of running in there because it’s required for his job but I decided I prefer race walking and hiking. I’m a faster walker than runner and I enjoy it so much more! But of course no amount of exercise matters if nutrition sucks. Our plan is Vegetarian/Flexitarian Mediterranean nutrition plan. 30 day free trial Les Mills On Demand: sign up for a new LES MILLS On Demand subscription. On that page click the green text “Redeem Promo Code”, paste the code in and click apply. Your code is: supinesubstance57
The page will refresh and a hidden promotion with a 30-day free trial will show. Once you complete the sign up process, you will automatically receive 30 days’ free access to LES MILLS on Demand. **Terms and Conditions: Extended free trial is for 30 days and is redeemable for new subscribers only. Not valid to past trialists or current subscribers.

See Hamilton on Broadway! Yes, it’s expensive, and yes we will get the least expensive we can get lol, but it’s something we both want to experience. And maybe a few others too like Cats and Phantom. Broadway.com

Photograph a walking tour of New York city. I want to soak up as much of the city as we can. I’ve always been a city girl and could see myself living there. But this city girl is married to a suburban kind of guy. And I agree in part because I can’t wait to have a garden and a yard for our future dog to play in!! New York City: The Official Guide

Yankees game(s)!! I LOVE baseball and the hubs is ok with it (he’s not a big sports guy). I’ve been a Yankees fan since I was little, even while growing up in Ohio near Indians (I wish they’d change the name already) stadium and going to Indians games. So we gotta go, even if I’m in the bleachers or nose bleed seats! MLB New York Yankees

Bronx Zoo…As I get more and more into the issues animals face, while wishing they could thrive in the wild, let’s face it we are eating up and destroying all the wild spaces! Most of my adult life I’ve been anti zoo and anti captivity. And while that still stands true for the most part. I can also be honest enough to admit we at times are fighting a losing battle to keep the animals safe and safe from extinction. One day zoos may be the only real safe zones for them. So I am a zoo advocate while still being a harsh critic of zoos. They need to do more, they need to actually keep them safe and not exploit them. They need to help the species to survive and thrive and not just for profit or human amusement. So we like to visit zoos to see how they rate as far as concern for their residents. *The Bronx Zoo opened November 8, 1899. The Bronx Zoo is a zoo located within Bronx Park in the Bronx, a borough of New York City. It is one of the largest zoos in the United States by area, comprising 265 acres (107 ha) of park lands and naturalistic habitats separated by the Bronx River. On average, the zoo has 2.15 million visitors each year. The Bronx Zoo is world-renowned for its large and diverse animal collection, and its award-winning exhibitions.[5] The zoo is part of an integrated system of four zoos and one aquarium managed by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), and it is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).[6] Bronx Zoo: Saving Wildlife and Wild Places

Bed & Breakfast at Christmas in Cape May. Cape May New Jersey is a little bit magical during the holidays. The little coastal town is lit up with holiday cheer and touches of old fashioned Christmases gone by. Since they have so many century type homes still standing and still taking in guests and residents Christmas touches are just a little extra in the sweet town. Filled with small shops, confections and collectibles it’s the perfect place to welcome the season! I fell in love with Cape May when we first arrived here in December. We went down for trolley rides; one was an old fashioned Christmas ghost story while riding the streets of the town, one was an actual guided tour of the homes  and bed and breakfasts as we were told the rich history of the town. All the homes and B&B’s were decorated with lights and trimmings for the trolley tours. A must see if you’re ever in the area! Cape May

See the Battleship New Jersey. Historical site. USS New Jersey (BB 62) Wikipedia Battleship New Jersey

Visit Atlantic City & The Boardwalk. We already did a bit of this the past week. We wandered the boardwalk and the beach, drove around the city and visited a great little eatery, The Enlightened Cafe which is also a great community outreach. We have tickets to see Piff The Magic Dragon this weekend in Atlantic City. The area tends to pull in loads of great entertainment throughout the year. Atlantic City is mostly known for gambling but neither my hubs or I tare into that.  Atlantic City NJ

Make snow angels! We haven’t seen a lot of snow during our 10 years living in Virginia and when we did we did it didn’t last long. It’s been a long time since I’ve made a snow angel and I plan to make them often during the winter months here. And speaking of snow, maybe some sledding and other winter sport activities while we’re this far north!

Six Flags Great Adventure. We already have season passes. One of the biggest pluses to being in New Jersey is that we are near Keith’s family! We plan many a visit with the fam to Six Flags while we’re here since it’s one of their “go to” spots with our niece and nephew! Added bonus is that we live super close!! Six Flags Great Adventure

Ellis Island & The Statue Of Liberty. This is simply one of those things you just need to see if you’re in or near New York City. History! Ellis Island

Explore Philadelphia! This city is another that’s rich with history. I regret in the entire 10 years we spent in Virginia we never took a trip to Washington DC to soak up all the history. So we don’t plan on skipping that with Philly! The 10 Most Essential Things to Do on Your (First) Visit to Philly

Dig For Herkimer Diamonds!! You can prospect for your own Herkimer Diamonds in Herkimer NY! “Herkimer Diamonds are high vibration crystals, that boost clairvoyant and clairaudient abilities. There’s even a KOA camping resort you can bunker down at! Can’t wait to get my hands dirty!!

Popcorn Park Zoo, speaking of zoos. Popcorn Park Zoo is a small 7-acre zoo. According to the Associated Humane Societies, the zoo is “a sanctuary for abandoned, injured, ill, exploited, abused or elderly wildlife, exotic and farm animals, and birds.”  This is someplace special and I want to celebrate that! Popcorn Park

Paranormal Museum Asbury Park??? Unexplained phenomena, legends, folklore, myths, or are they?? The Paranormal Museum is a storefront and museum, in the tradition of “Roadside America” days gone by attractions. It houses a collection of historical and educational exhibits and just sounds like a heck of a lot of fun! I’m up for the macabre!! Paranormal Museum Asbury Park

Seashell Museum, because beach, sea, shells. I’m all about all things beachy and ocean related so this sounds like a great little day trip!! The Discovery Seashell Museum

Morey’s Piers & Wildwood. Morey’s Piers is a 6-block beachfront amusement park featuring 100+ rides & attractions including seasonal water parks. And Wildwood NJ has some great beachfront to explore and enjoy some sunshine at!!

Grounds For Sculpture. For my artistic side this place looks gorgeous to visit!! Grounds For Sculpture is a 42 acre sculpture park and art museum!

Cape May Lighthouse Full Moon Climb A great fitness challenge doing something you know you’d like to do anyway, that’s the way I see it anyway lol. Lighthouse Full Moon Climb

Off Roading The Pine Barrens, yikes! Rattlesnakes, frogs and a whole lotta swamp! But, we have a jeep so we can adventure!!

Rock Climbing. This is uncharted activity for hubs and me. I’ve talked about it and repelling often as something I want to try out. So time to strengthen up our arms and legs and dig in! These are the most popular places for rock climbing in N.J.

My not so little list keeps growing. I started this blog post before we moved, that was in November and when I opened the draft I had to edit in so much more we’ve found to see and do. So many parks and hikes we are super excited about! So many beaches to explore! Now we’re in search of the lesser known out of the way gems that only locals know about. So this list WILL be added to on the blog and as we do them, I want to cross them off the list to see how much we accomplish!!

<We’ve been honest that this wasn’t the easiest move. We called Virginia Beach VA home for 10 years of our 11 years together and all of our married life together. So Virginia Beach was home to us. But being in New Jersey has so many high points we can’t not be excited. Especially with family being here. I started this list to get myself ready for new adventures and discoveries and I know we’re gonna make a lot of memories and have a lot of fun!

Weight Loss Motivation Tips

giphy

◼️Create goals but make them manageable. Don’t set a goal that’s likely far in the future and don’t set one that’s to easy either. You’ll find that your goals may change over time, so make them small and short term.

◼️Imagine a fitter, healthier you. Imagine yourself fitting into those skinny jeans, or crossing that finish line. Focusing on actually accomplishing your goals will keep negativity at bay and allow you to push forward. Practice visualization for just 10 minutes a day simply by closing your eyes and picturing yourself getting healthier and slimmer, keying in on how you look and feel, and imagining a more confident, energized, and proud version of yourself.

◼️Always grocery shop with a list, and stick to the list!

◼️If you are going to indulge, remember the “rule of one”. One scoop, one piece, one bit, etc…

◼️Prep ahead. If you know you’re doing something that’s burning a lot of calories. Have a Shakeology available, or veggies & hummus. Healthy, low calorie, good nutrient snacks for when you feel like your energy’s been zapped and you get hangry!

◼️Create a vision board. It helps you to not lose sight of your goals during times you’re feeling low or struggling.

◼️Make a celebration as clothes get too big on you, donate them. This will make you feel good about your accomplishment and good about helping others from the sowing the seeds of your accomplishment!

◼️Do it for YOU. Don’t do it for your boyfriend, or your husband. Don’t do it to get that guy to notice you. You think that’s a real personal motivator, but it’s not. You have to do it for yourself. Because YOU want change, because YOU want better health.

◼️Don’t see rewards in the form of food or desert. Your rewards shouldn’t be food focused, ever. Let rewards be a new top, one size lower. Or go get your hair done, or a mani pedi. Massages are an awesome reward for working your body hard!

  • Where is the best place to watch the sunrise or sunset?

Hands down – the beach! It’s the most amazing feeling to watch the sun rise or set way out as it seems to or rise from the ocean depths 💙🌊

  • What color do you wear the most often?

Hmm probably black because that’s one of my favorite colors. 

  • How many siblings do you have?

Two (one passed away quite a while ago)

  • Which charity would you leave all your money to in the future?

I would divide 😂 all my money between the ASPCA, Harley’s Dream, and Oceana because yeah, I really do love animals more most of the time. But my money certainly wouldn’t go very far.

  • If you lived in another country, what would it be?

Italy or Ireland, maybe New Zealand.

  • What are your favorite and least favorite candy bars?

Favorite, mounds, I love coconut. Least favorite, almond joy, why did they have to ruin a delicious coconut candy bar???? Seriously, I don’t think I have a least favorite or favorite. I don’t eat candy bars very often. I usually eat 3-5 Hershey Kisses and I’m good to go for regular candy. As far as chocolate, I prefer the good expensive kind that isn’t filled with bad ingredients.

  • What is you favorite time of day?

Twilight, or very early dawn. Used to be middle of the night.

  • What is the least favorite part of your own blog?

I recently made a lot of changes and I don’t really dislike anything anymore about my blog. I dislike the fact I am bad with time management and don’t blog as much as I’d like to.

  • What food causes you to pig out the most?

🍕🍕🍕 Pizza. Pizza is my guilty, not guilty pleasure. Now I’d rather make my own so I can control the ingredients 😉 and that makes it a healthier option than ordering.

  • What actress would you want to meet for coffee?

Jennifer Lawrence, Rosario Dawson, Nikki Reed, or some other actress who speaks 🗣️ out for a cause they believe in. I’m not much of a fan girl type. I look at acting, writing, singing, playing a sport as no different than any other job. Everyone has a talent at a job they do, some just don’t see it that way. And people who do jobs that put themselves in harms way for the community and those who teach our children should be honored more than any celebrity, ever!
