Hi hi hi!

Even though this has been a short week, it feels like it’s been one of the longest weeks! I have been on the struggle bus in regards to going to the gym because my legs have been sore since Tuesday.

Hi hi hi!

My days are so mixed up! I keep thinking today (January 10th) is Thursday! Anyhow, I hope you guys had a great Tuesday and Wednesday.

What’s In Janellie’s Belly?|The Struggle Continues

Hi hi hi!

If you don’t follow me on YouTube, you are seriously missing out! Just kidding – I have been trying to post weekly vlogs where I talk about not only what I’m eating, but also my mental health and the things that I’m dealing with. Once that’s posted on my channel, I come on here and go more in depth to how the week went. So for those who like the short version, head over to my YouTube channel, but if you like a more in depth version, continue reading.

Pint-Size Reviews

Hi hi hi!

I wanted to post this before I actually started posting reviews based off of samples/deluxe samples that I receive with some of my orders. I am sure that there will be some unhappy folks out there who question why I would even bother with posting reviews when I’ve only tried the sample of it, so before that happens, I thought it would be best to provide a warning. Also, these reviews that will be based off a sample will be for department store brands only – there will be no drug store brands (I don’t even think they hand out samples).

When I opt to get a sample with my purchase, I do it because I’m genuinely interested in the product, but I don’t want to spend the money, time, and effort to go out and actually get it. Sure, I could read countless reviews, watch a bunch of YouTube videos, and even go down and swatch the product, but that doesn’t provide me any information about how it performs in the long run. Why would I want to purchase a full size of a product I end up not liking (after watching rave reviews on YouTube) and then have to take the time and effort to either go back to the store and return or to ship it back to wherever it came from?

I solely believe that a company should put the same effort and quality in a sample product as they do a full size product – I mean, isn’t the whole point to get people interested in purchasing the full  size? If a sample is going to perform like complete poop why should I bother with investing in it?

I have a bunch of little deluxe sample sizes of products that I received from orders, sets, etc. and I do think that they each deserve a review and I want to take the time and review them. Maybe one day when I’m bringing in the “dolla dolla bills yall” I will go out and pick up full size versions and compare them, but until then if you see a  review based off of a deluxe sample and you actually own the full size version, please let me know if you experience the same things with your product(s)! I would love to hear from all of you.

xoxo,

[THE FIT JOURNEY] What I Ate Wednesday – March 23, 2016

Hi hi hi!

So I decided to attempt to do a What I Ate Wednesday, except, I took pictures on Tuesday. The reason behind it is that I stopped counting calories. Long story short, I don’t think my body had enough fuel to go through the day and help me lose weight. I decided instead of counting calories, I will just watch what I eat… Continue reading “[THE FIT JOURNEY] What I Ate Wednesday – March 23, 2016”
