My first week of Workout/ Training. 


-Happy Monday- 

A week ago I took the plung and decided that NOW is the time to begin my fitness journey and I am so happy that I did. 

I have always had a fear of workouts/ gyms and being judged because lets face it, when you are thin/small people belittle your fitness goals. At the same time I kind of just got to a point where I thought you know what f**k it either way people are gonna hate on it but at least I will be reaching my goals for ME! 

My weight is the highest (non pregnancy) and I seem to be maintaining it well these days. I am not jumping into a diet or completely changing my daily eating habits but I am taking baby steps into having a healthier lifestyle. 

Not only am I enjoying working out but my health has improved so much as well. My anxiety is hardly even noticeable, I am able to sleep with no sleep aid and my headaches and back pain has been reduced 95% along with the help of essential oils. 

I can not wait to take weekly/monthly progress photos and see changes in my body and feel better about my physical appearance. My advice to you if you have been procrastinating working out, just DO IT! Take that leap and do it for you! 

I will Blog meal prep ideas and Weekly Fitness updates, look forward to that! Also I have a lot of new Photography to share with you all so those posts will be coming soon!

Glitter Tears MOTD | TheIndieChicBlog | xxkaseygruenewaldxx 

Hey guys, I hope you all are having a great weekend as for me I have had a wonderful day.  Today was the first day in MONTHS that I have been pain free and I figured after all of the cleaning, cooking (mom life) that I would sit down and play with some makeup. 

I haven’t given up on my dream of someday becoming a Makeup Artist and I am slowly but surely getting back into the swing of it. I really hope to go to Cosmetology school soon so I can be licensed in makeup and hair. I do freelance haircuts and sometimes makeup on the side as well as photography so I figured if I were licensed I could begin doing Weddings, Events and well who knows. The whole license is not very important to me though because I know a lot of people who are makeup artist even without being certified so I guess I’ll just have to really think about it. What do you think about it? Drop your opinions in the comment section. 

Also, I will have new photography coming soon so I am very excited about that as well and I am going to being stepping up my Photography skills and try some very cool ideas. I am also wanting to begin taking “photography” style photos of myself for my Social Media!! 

I did a makeup look with some glitter tears the other day and I LOVE it, I’m not sure what it is about the glitter tears but I am obsessed and excited to try new makeup looks. I follow so many creative people on my Instagram so I am feeling very inspired and excited. If you are on Instagram follow me so we can become friends. 

My Instagram account is the best way to keep up with all of the things that I create whether it be Makeup, Photography or well…. everything. 


This Smoked out Cateye, glitter tears and black brows are my JAM and I feel fierce, grunge and beautiful.  Let me know what you think of this look and if you have any makeup look suggestions, drop them in the comment section. 

I love you all and I will be back very soon! Do not forget to like and follow. Xoxo

A Lisztomania- A need to listen to music all the time.

January 7, Sunday Night Thoughts. 

1-07-2018

Today has been a lazy Sunday to say the least and I have had all day to sit around and think about my current situations… 

I tend to care far more in all situations than other people do. I love harder, hurt deeper, laugh harder, and try my best to heal others of their pain but sometimes I need someone to help me as well. 

Why do I allow myself to stay in such a lonely place in my own little world? Sometimes it gets very hard having to (basically) live daily life and parent alone. 

My husband works as much as he possibly can to give us everything that we want and need but really, Money can’t buy me Love. Money gets me nowhere when I am sleeping alone at night or just needing someone to talk to. 

Sometimes it is good to be alone, I know, but  it is also to be someone priority too. 

Emotions and words get tangled, social media, electronics and other things get in the way of the one thing we all want in life, to spend time with the ones that you love. 

I may be “annoying or needy” but it is just because when I have the chance, I want to be together. Tomorrow is never promised and I try to LOVE like there is no tomorrow. I do not want to leave this earth with out all of my loved ones knowing how much I love them. 

Maybe it’s the medication, I am unbalanced and emotional but when I feel, I feel deeply. I have always been this kind of person and I do not plan on changing. 

Life is hard, living is hard and Love is the hardest of all.

January 4th – Todays Movie Marathon. 

1-04-2018

I don’t know about you all but I have been sickly, cold and staying indoors lately. We recently have had the coldest cold front we have had in a long time and this little lady just isn’t for it. My immune system is doing its best thankfully because I have to avoid any and all infections due to how my bladder flares after antibiotics. 

So I have been filling my down time with movies other than reading and yes I will be sharing my view on “Fight less, Love more” when I am finished with it. 


Last nights movie was “Stepmom” starring Julia Roberts and Susan Surandon, one of my favorite movies from my younger years. This movie is a perfect movies for a cold winter day. I have been off of my Anti-depressant medication since the 29th and I am a big ball of Emotion!!!!! 

As a child I did not know what Cancer even was or as an adult I really do cry my eyes out. Is it just me or is Cancer way more common these days than in the 90s? I think so. 


Another favorite is “Crazy, Stupid, Love”.  The cast of this movie is just amazing and every little twist and turn is hilarious and heartfelt. Movies like this shows me that you don’t have to have a picture perfect life to have it all. Sometimes things fall apart, sometimes life gets crazy but it is how you deal with it, that’s what matters. 


Let me just say that Shailene Woodley has always been a favorite actress and when she stars in a movie, I know I am going to be in love. Her corcky and raw personality along with Ansel Elgort just went together perfectly! I have watched this movie a Hundred Million times and I will never get over the heartache. 

So, Tomorrow I will be uploading a new Vlog on my YouTube channel Subscribe here! I will be loading weekly Vlogs ever Friday for the whole Year of 2018!!!!! Oh snap! It’s about to get real guys! 

Let me know some of your favorite Movies to keep me company while I am in bed a lot. I love watching and reading new books and opening my mind to creative worlds. 

Until tomorrow. Xoxo
