WARNING: If you aren't ready for a venting post, then I would back it up and read another post for now!

Okay. I have a confession to make…

I am not fake.

Ever since I started my blog, I really have been finding my inner me. The REAL me.

Yes, I have gained confidence. Yes, I feel more proud of myself. Yes, I am healthier. Yes, I am happier with my body. But no, I am NOT trying to be anybody else. I AM ME.

I feel as though once I started my Facebook and Instagram page, I have been getting a little bit of negativity here and there. That's definitely not what I want. 

It's kind of upsetting. Okay, it's really upsetting.

I truly put my heart into this blog, for you and me. It keeps me motivated to know that I am motivating you. 

I feel like some people think that I am trying to claim fame or become somebody I'm not!

A purpose in life of mine is to serve. 

And one way I like to serve is with positive guidance, a helping hand, and encouragement to others.

I know a lot of you on Instagram (and a few on Facebook and Bloglovin) don't know me, but I promise what you see is what you get!

If you knew me personally, you would know that I am a very sensitive and caring person. That is the whole reason why I started my blog. I lacked self-confidence throughout my life, ended up choosing a different lifestyle journey,  and now I'm running with it. And I want to share that with you because I care!

No, my goal is not to be famous. That's so silly!

Do I want my blog to be noticed? Yes! Because I feel as though it is important for everyone to be on a path to a healthier and happier lifestyle. With help. And encouragement. And knowing that somebody will be there for and with them along the way

That is what my blog is meant for! Okay, now that I have those tears out of the way… I guess I need to leave by saying this:

Don't let anyone stand in the way of YOU. Stay positive. Do not give up on your goals and dreams. 

I've said it before and I will say it again… you are beautiful and different than everyone around you. Embrace it. Be you.

Okay. My vent sesh is over. This is just a prime example of not letting someone or something knock you down. I can only move forward from this! And for the record, I LOVE blogging. I LOVE being able to help YOU!

Annnnd what the heck, here are some pictures to prove that "ain't nobody got time for that!"

The REAL Callie

 P.S. If I lose followers after this, that's okay. I am just being me! :) 

And I promise I will be posting about salt tomorrow. I just had to get this off my chest.


  1. LOL!! I love "And here are some pictures to prove, Ain't nobody got time for that". I've known you since elementary school and never once knew you lacked self confidence girl! Never!! But I am glad you are more confident and happy and that this is helping you. I know it helps me during the day at work when I'm craving some chips but I'll read this and grab some almonds instead. Keep pushing honey!!! It's awesome!
