My Goals for Fall

Posted September 25, 2014 in Fall, goals, motivation and 7 more

When the seasons change, I like to take a little time to set some intentions for the new season. It's the perfect time to reevaluate the goals you've already set or even set some new goals.

At first, I was sad to see summer go. But I realized that fall is full of new opportunities, a chance to wear clothes I haven't seen in ages (cozy sweaters!) and a way to switch up my meals (hello, butternut squash soup, apple crisp and pumpkin everything!).

Here are my goals for fall...

Weekend Recap {Oct. 3-5}

Posted October 6, 2014 in Weekend Recap, weekend, fitness instructor and 9 more

Now that I'm in my 30's, I feel like a successful weekend is one that didn't include wearing any makeup, but did include working out, drinking wine and lounging around with people I love. This was definitely one of those weekends.

I had some great workouts, I ate delicious food, I hung out with my family and the BF, drank wine, spent time outside and never put on a drop of makeup. Success!

Here's what happened...

Weekend Recap {Nov. 14-16}

Posted November 17, 2014 in Weekend Recap, weekend, yoga and 8 more

My weekend didn't turn out exactly how I had planned, but I just went with it and ended up having a nice few days. 

I didn't get in as many workouts as I planned, but my body definitely needed a rest. I mentioned in my Week of Workouts post that I taught lots of fitness classes last week, and I've been having some hip pain. I'm trying to be better at listening to my body. 

The best part of my weekend was spending time with people I care about! I spent lots of quality time with the BF, my niece, my parents and the BF's sister and grandmother, dad and stepmom.

Friday Faves {Sept. 4, 2015}

Posted September 4, 2015 in Friday Faves, Friday, Spirit Junkie and 10 more

How is it September already?!?! This year is flying by.

I'm super excited it's Friday and it's a holiday weekend. I totally need it. I recently completed Social Academy Bootcamp with BexLife and Danny J, and there are soooooo many things I want to do to improve my blog and my brand.

I've already made a few changes! When you sign up for my newsletter, you now get my favorite smoothies that help me satisfy my sweet cravings without sabotaging my healthy lifestyle! Smoothies are seriously my favorite way to calm a sugar craving! And these recipes are my best ones! Get the recipes here.

I also reformatted my newsletter. It will now feature exclusive content you don't see here on the blog, and it's easier to read and prettier ; )

On Saturday and Sunday, I'll be in Lincoln with the BF and my fam, but on Monday I plan to tackle some other things on my Social Academy to do list. What are your plans for Labor Day weekend?

Because it's Friday, here are a few of my recent faves...
