If there’s something I love in life, it is COFFEE and goals. 🙂 One such implementation took the shape of me limiting my Starbucks spending. I put $100.00 on my Starbucks app virtual “card” at the start […]

Listen with your heart…and head…and gut!

I don’t know if it’s because I am getting older (hello mid-thirties!), because I have (attempted) a healthier lifestyle than in the past, or some combination of a bunch of things but I have noticed an intensely different feeling in and with my body! I would say (honestly speaking) I haven’t always been so in […]

Stress & Self Care

As the weather turns cooler, the sunlight hours lessen, and we start to spend more time indoors, I wanted to gently remind everyone to keep their stress levels in check, and allocate time to self care. Stress. That sneaky bastard. It’s infiltrates our minds and bodies in ways we don’t even recognize many times, and […]

The Show Must Go On

Sorry COVID, but you don’t get to win today. Back in the early part of this year, I decided to sign up for a half marathon, which you can read about here. I was so excited! I felt so nervous, but in the best way. Since then, clearly COVID came barreling through like the fun-sucking […]

You-nique. Rules for YOU

I have said it before but I think it’s a good reminder periodically, but YOU are not me. I am not my friend or sister, and nobody (and no BODY) is the same. I find this especially necessary to say in relation to fitness and health. As a person who has been on their own […]
