Going the Distance

ImageWe recently watched a movie called Rocky in class, starring Sylvester Stallone. The movie is about an amateur boxer, Rocky, who’s never actually had a real fight before and is given the chance to fight a well known, heavyweight champion. He is given the opportunity to pursue the American dream, and along the way, he finds love. To prepare for the big fight, Rocky trains all day and night. He never gives up even with all the obstacles thrown at him in life. Rocky tries to look past the negatives and keep moving on. However, while everyone else was pushing him and thinking that his goal was to beat Apollo Creed, Rocky was aiming more than that.

Research has shown that breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it gives us energy to start the day and improves our performance in whatever we’re doing. It improves our concentration and problem solving skills, as well as eye-hand coordination. However, some of us may be in a hurry and not have enough time to eat breakfast. It’s okay! Here are some ideas to make for a breakfast on the go~

Life is Full of Sweet Surprises

So, Mother’s Day is coming up, and I found a fun and unique gift that is great to give to all those moms out there! 🙂 Instead of just giving an ordinary box of chocolates, why not sweeten things up and surprise your mom by using a book to use as a hideout for the candies! (She’ll never see it coming haha) 😛 Just take any book of choice and cut out some pages in the book to put the candies in. I think this idea is the cutest thing ever, and it’s a great way to creatively recycle a book.
