Fall Workout Wear


I’m definitely a big believer in the well researched statistic that if you have new cute workout clothes, you’re more inspired to work out. It’s true – the first step to get motivated is to dress for it. Even if you don’t have a plan for the day but you’re wearing some moveable clothing, you’ll end […]

A few years ago I realized I needed to put more intention behind what I consumed. I would catch myself going entire days without eating anything green or drinking more than one glass of water and I could really feel it. I hired my friend, neighbor, and hiking buddy Caley who is an AMAZING yoga guru/nutritionist […]

Trader Joe’s Hall of Fame


What’s not to love about Trader Joe’s? Fun, friendly, affordable, and full of innovative foods, a trip to TJ’s is *almost* as fun as a trip to Target in my book. For awhile there, we found ourselves in the black hole that is Whole Foods and thinking that everything on our list needed to be […]

The new year always brings up a lot of wishes for change and improvement, but I find that some resolutions feel so hard to achieve. In a way, they end up more like weights on our shoulders and reasons to feel bad about ourselves. This month, I’m trying to approach my resolutions with a bit of […]

It’s been almost 2 weeks since I started the Tone It Up plan and I immediately started feeling 100 times better. I’ve had a few challenges on the way so far with family visiting (who wants to visit / eat with someone on a diet? Not me!) but there will always be things on the […]

I literally CANNOT believe that I am showing you guys this photo. No seriously, I’m pretty comfortable with putting a lot out there but this was something I really battled with before deciding to do it.
