Fit & Frugal: No Spend Success!!!

Well my dear friends…it was a SUCCESS!!!  You may have seen my post in the beginning of September regarding our family attempting a no spend month (http://nicolemichelles.com/2016/09/07/fit-frugal-no-spend-september/).  I must be honest in telling you it was not easy!!!!  In the end, we saved almost $400 in the month of September and were able to pay off […]

Fit & Frugal: Mid Month Report for the No Spend September

  I most definitely thought that by now we would have crashed and fell out of the wagon completely.  It is not that I did not have faith in us BUT something always comes up when we attempt to do something like this. For instance… Day 1 – Oil change light pops on Day 2 […]

Fit & Frugal: No Spend September

Lately I have been praying for a way to get out of this mindset and debt that we have accumulated with having our kids and all of the moves we have done.  I’ve been hearing people on the radio talk about how they pushed through the debt snowballing and are now within months of owning […]

New commitment.

2012 was the beginning.  It was tons of research and struggling to find what works. 2013 was the surprise.  After getting on my way with weight loss, Hannah decided to join our family. 2014 was the return.  In the beginning of the year, I was injured and needed to take some time out to rest […]

A girl and her planner: New Addition

I like pretty things.  I like organizing.  I am doomed.  In the world of planning, they are all pretty. As I posted before…  I have a long list of planners in my house.  Not out of necessity or hoarding.  Last year was the year of adjustment.  After using a little planner I picked up from […]

What’s really been going on…

I have not said anything because I did not want to believe certain things were really happening. Over the course of the last couple months, I have been experiencing little strange things.  I have hypothyroidism which I am on medication for and generally run low on iron but correct it with what we eat.  What […]

A girl and her planner

In an effort to ease the anxiety of the chaos…  this last year I moved to a better system, a full planner.  The planners from the stores were nice but they were simply too basic.  I have a lot to juggle and I needed a central place for my everything.  I invested in a beautiful […]

Review: Fabletics

Fabletics…you know that athletic sportswear advertisement going around on Facebook?  I know you’ve seen it!  It’s a company co-founded by Kate Hudson. I had been watching the ads for a while and kinda nervous to go for it.  I mean what’s the trick?  Why is a fantastic looking workout outfit only $25?  My running pants […]

Beautiful Mess: The me I used to be

Every one from a distance and up close has seen one of the transformations that I have done in the last two years.  That’s far from all that I have done.  I have chosen to open up and really figure it all out.  Who am I?  What do I want?  How am I going to […]
