Get Your Hands Involved!

Always an adventure in the Mellix household!

Mellix Life

I’ve had it! Seriously, this is just ridiculous. I don’t understand how hard it is to pee in the toilet. I mean the hole is HUGE! Just aim for the water…At this point can we just get it on the seat?

Why & how are we at the point where it smells like a gas station bathroom in the back woods?

Project: A Place To Call Home

So I have been away from the blogging world for about a week. I mentioned in my last post that I had to find other living arrangements. Several of my friends immediately offered me a room in their house. I’m very grateful for that, I am blessed to have many wonderful, amazing friends, but if possible I like having a place of my own. I’ve lived by myself for almost 20 years now, I kind of like it. I looked at a few rental properties. After some thinking, and considering that I have to be out of the house ASAP (before the end of this weekend,) I had to get started on something. I decided to buy an old RV, and make it nice.


It looked horrible on the inside when I got it, full of crap, everything from diapers to broken furniture etc. I bought it because the frame was good, the electric…

This is The Courage To Shift!!



I have to admit, I REALLY, REALLY hate squats! Exercise wasn’t in my vocabulary at the time, but I eventually accepted it as a necessary evil (along with a weekly support group for my food addiction) when I re-joined Weight Watchers over thirteen years ago for the last time! I was tired of starting over and finally ready to lose weight, by any means necessary! I can be very dramatic so should clarify that “by any means necessary” really only meant following the program the way it was designed, not just the parts that didn’t require sacrifice (like tracking what I ate or drinking water).

Yesterday after the gym I saw this post on Facebook and had a really good laugh! Today is the perfect opportunity to share it! I’ve grown to love Body Pump, (weight lifting to music) because the music drowns out the screams in my head!. The routine…

When your couples workout fantasy doesn’t go as planned.

Meet Life Experiment Blog!!


Yes, I gave it a go and found myself looking like a wimp.

My fiancé is a beast. The man works out and works out hard. Since we enjoy doing basically everything together, we had discussed how nice it would be to do a couples workout together every now and then.

I’ve really wanted to do this, but have been a bit shy to exhibit my lack of extreme workout skills in front of him. Now, please understand; It’s not like I’m incapable of exercise. I spent a large portion of this Spring/Summer working with David at Chape Personal Trainer, and he forced me to get used to some uncomfortable workouts. Luckily, I have managed a bit of stamina due to these sessions. However, I have gotten a bit comfy in my own skin recently, and my private workouts are more of a girl routine. I am not used…

Psychology should be required for middle and high-school students.

This is Lucky Otter’s Haven!

Lucky Otters Haven


Psychology, when it’s offered at the high school level, is offered as an elective course — which means it’s not required to graduate.    Many, if not most, high schools, don’t even offer Psychology as an option.   It’s only offered at the larger high schools, and not usually until Junior or Senior year, after required courses in math, English, languages and history are fulfilled.    Abnormal psychology, which goes into more depth about mental disorders and includes personality disorders, isn’t usually offered until the college level, and only to those students who have chosen a psychology or sociology major.

I don’t understand this.  Knowledge about psychology is necessary for us to understand our own behaviors and those of our fellow humans.  It can help kids be able to detect red flags or signs of mental illness in others, including in our leaders.   In my way of thinking, psychology…

Types of Couples on Valentine’s Day

Hilarious video from One More Shot Please!!


Hello all! I apologize for being so busy this week that I haven’t posted much. An update on my life: I have been bogged down with Mondays and Wednesdays packed with classes till 8:30 pm, and my Houstonia Magazine fellowship from 9:30-5 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. In addition to that, I have been out the rest of the weekend interviewing Simone Biles (yes, the Olympic gold medalist) and Haute Hijab CEO Melanie Elturk, attending events to cover for the magazine, spending time with friends, volunteering, and filming/editing YouTube videos. Events and interviews may seem like fun, and don’t get me wrong. They are. There is always so much to do that I constantly have this voice in my head nagging about some other event I need to run to another deadline to meet, even if it’s a self-imposed one. I just need one day to relax, clear my head, and treat myself by indulging…
