Toronto Eats

Hey boos! I hope you enjoyed the first post about my trip to Toronto. When I look back we actually did a lot and it was kind of overwhelming to post. So I'm gonna keep it short and sweet with this post and get right into it. 

Food is verrrrrry different in Toronto. I wasn't looking for your typical "American dining" but I was looking for things that look/sound good via the menu.  It wasn't bad, it was just different. I will post pictures of my meals and where I ate but I don't really want to get into the taste of things because I truly can't explain it.

I did a terrible job of capturing what/where we are on April 5th, so I can't talk about that. I know we did eat at a diner near the Park Hyatt. It wasn't half bad. The next morning we had breakfast at what I think is the equivalent to Starbucks. Its called Second Cup. It has a very similar set up to Starbucks and they sell breakfast sandwiches, pastries, coffee, tea, etc. It was standard.

Honestly, I'm not 100% sure if chicken sandwich is from the diner or not. But its a random food shot, from my time in Toronto, so I wanted to be sure to share it!
We frequented another restaurant that was in our second hotel its called King Street Social Kitchen & Bar. The food was okay. I did have an issue with my fruit being spoiled, but they rectified it by getting me new fruit and taking my oatmeal off our bill. It was an unfortunate incident (because I almost ate the fruit) but they took care of it and I was pleased about that. I also had some chicken nuggets from there. They were decent. I had to make my own honey mustard, and that was a fail lol. But the dessert was good there.  

 These pictures are from lunch at King Street Social Kitchen & Bar. 

There was a nice place across the street from our hotel called Fred's Not Here. It was a two-for-one kind of restaurant. Upstairs they had a fancy restaurant and downstairs they had a more casual pizzeria. We opted for the pizzeria, it wasn't a bad choice at all. The pizza was really good. 

We went to a place called Hoop's Sports Bar & Grill. They had Canadian cuisine there. I was really too nervous to try other things so I stuck with wings and fries. My mom got some kind of salad with grilled shrimp and a poached pear. She said it was pretty good. Pears and I don't get along, so I didn't try it lol.

Hard Rock Cafe was downtown so we are there one night. Its the same as any other Hard rock that I've been to.

Our last night in Toronto we wen to Canteen. Its a restaurant that is about 2 blocks from where out hotel is located. The food was actually pretty good and our waiter was excellent. I would definitely go here again!

My favorite restaurant was the 360 Restaurant in the CN Tower. It started out a little shaky. I was certain some of the workers there were turning their nose up at us. But it was the day before my birthday and I was going to enjoy that meal and view no matter what. My mom and I ended up getting the same thing. Salmon with a side salad. It was really good.

Overall, the food is very different. Like I said earlier I can't describe the difference. It could just be that my taste buds are different from that of Canadians. But I would go back to Toronto. And I hear you have to go in the summer, everything is better during that time of year.

That's all for my birthday trip to Toronto, I hope y'all enjoyed it. See you soon!

Just Do It 2K17.

Hey loves! So, I have to be honest. You may not be able to tell but I am pretty shy. I've overcome it in strides over the years, but I'm still very shy.

Along with being shy, I'm suuuuuper fearful. My fear of the unknown is REAL. So I spend days, weeks, months, and/or years talking myself out of doing things simply because I'm fearful of the outcome. It is a HUGE hindrance to my success and this year I am vowing to change that. 

I'm calling this, Just Do It 2k17.

I have to do better, I have to have faith. There's so much that I have planned this year and I am going to do everything in my power to make it happen. Nothing matters more to me than my success. The days of being my own worst enemy are over. Time to be on #TeamJanisha!

So no more fear. I do understand that this will NOT happen over night, and I hope you guys understand that too. But I'm taking the first step and I'm very proud of myself for it. 

If you are struggling with shyness or fearfulness ple…

2017 Travel List

Hey loves! The last travel list I made was in 2015. I went to 4 cities on that list of 20 between 2015 and 2016. This year I made a list of 10 locations. Maybe one or two repeat cities(that I didn't travel to) on the new list. But I'm excited to share it with you all.

2017 Travel List
1. New Orleans 2. Austin, TX 3. Toronto 4. Florence, Italy 5. France 6. England 7. Dallas-Houston 8. Phoenix 9. Detroit 10. Indianapolis
Like I said, its 10 locations. Both abroad and domestic. Its basically a wish list/goal list.
 I'm really excited about this year. I feel that greater is coming. Greater, trips, greater health, greater coins(yes, please!), just greater everything! I pray that 2017 is much better than 2016. Lord knows we went through a lot as a country, so I can only imagine what people went through individually last year.
Comment below where you wish to travel this year. I hope that you all get to go everywhere your heart desires in 2017. See you next time!
Peace&Love, Janisha

The Struggle is REAL.

Hey loves. I'm sure we have all said that phrase, "The struggle is REAL." And I'm also sure that we've said it hundreds of times. It's the perfect phrase for when you're struggling to do anything. 

For me I mostly use it when my motivation is low. When doing what I'm supposed to do is the LAST thing on my "Want to Do" list. For instance, working out. For the past 3 weeks(with a beak in between) I've been working out. It has been so hard! On top of eating right, and drinking between 110-128 ounces of water a day. And before this, I was drinking maaaaybe 30-50 ounces of water a day, a strong maybe. My eating was so out of pocket. Popeyes, Chick-fil-A, Wendy's, Ledo's Pizza, Chipotle, Qdoba, and probably the worst of all, Nana's home cooking. 

I knew that I needed to change for two reasons, 1.) I was the biggest I had ever been. Pushing 230lbs. 2.) I was UNHAPPY. Depression and anxiety had gotten the best of me. And what I thought…
