RISE Conference: Take Aways and Give Aways

RISE Conference: Take Aways and Give Aways

I am just coming back from the RISE Conference and I am on FIRE and ready to take on the world. I feel like this after I come home from any conference I go to.

When I came back I had so much energy and excitement that I could actually sense that the people around me were like “what the ….” But that’s just what conferences do.

Conferences arm you with information and tools that help motivate you and help you improve any aspect of your life.    Continue reading “RISE Conference: Take Aways and Give Aways”

January Detox Meal Ideas

January Detox Meal Ideas

Good Morning Team! 

As I promised in my last blog, I wanted to make sure I shared a couple of my favorite recipes to try over the next three weeks during my January detox. But you don’t have to be on a detox to try them, they can also be used as inspo for some healthy meal options! 

Whenever I read about detox or meal plans, they will tell you what vegetables, proteins, and carbs to eat but I’m always left thinking, “how?”. How do I make those foods into delicious meals that I actually want to eat and will keep me full? 

I hate when people say, “Eat a garden salad with chicken!” Barf. I’ll be hungry again 20 minutes later. No thank you. I need enough food and the right kinds of food that are healthy options but won’t have me searching for the snack cabinet 20 minutes later. 

That is the point of this blog. =] I want to help answer your “but how?” question.  

These also are honestly some of my favorite go-to meals when I want something that will be delicious, good for my body and will keep me full. Emphasizing the “keep me full” part. 😉 Continue reading “January Detox Meal Ideas”

The MUCH Needed January Detox

The MUCH Needed January Detox

If you are anything like me over the holidays you totally overdo it. When I say “it”, I mean legitimately everything. I overate, I drank (more than I should), I overspent, I over partied, I was overjoyed ;). And I don’t regret one second, bite, or drink of it. But because of all the holiday cheer and fun that I have, January tends to be a bit of a tough month.  

Last weekend I had a New Year’s Day brunch with my girlfriends and we were all talking about needing to detox after this holiday season. Which made me think that maybe the blog should be about a January detox! Continue reading “The MUCH Needed January Detox”

Actually, I can

Actually, I can

Hey Friends,

If you have been with me for a while, you know that I LOVE the new year.  I love it because in my world a new year means new goals and dreams to work towards in the year to come.

Nothing gets me more excited than a blank notebook just waiting for me to fill it with my thoughts, ideas, dreams, and aspirations.  Sunday I spent hours doing it and walked away from that time feeling like a total badass, ready to conquer the world.

But today I don’t want to talk about goal setting and getting in the ‘new year, new me’ mindset.  Last year I wrote, one of my most popular blogs called “New Year, New You – Goal Setting” and I would highly recommend reading this for a step by step guide on exactly how to go about your goal setting this year.

But again, that’s not what today is about.  Today is about looking back at the past year(s), remembering how far you have come, and all the obstacles you overcame.  Pumping yourself up to see how much of a badass you already are. Continue reading “Actually, I can”

The Best Gift To Give This Year

The Best Gift To Give This Year

… is your full attention, and presence.

The holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year. People are buzzing about putting up decorations, buying gifts, planning meals, going to parties, hosting parties, and making delicious holiday goodies.  

All the buzz buzz buzz is all about the extra “stuff” that comes along with the holiday. Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the buzz and the “extra stuff” that comes with it. My apartment is totally decorated in every room, I go to tons of parties and love shopping for gifts. But at the end of the day, I know that’s not what it’s all about.  Continue reading “The Best Gift To Give This Year”

How to Focus at Work

How to Focus at Work

Focusing, in general, can be pretty tough, but I find that being totally focused at work is even harder.  Especially when I really need to buckle down and get a lot of work done.

I blame it on my phone and technology, but today I am not going to theorize on the impact technology has on our attention span.   Instead, I want to focus on what we can do to stay focused at work every day. 

These are some simple but really effective ways to stay focused and on task at work, every day. Continue reading “How to Focus at Work”

5 Things to do to start your morning

5 Things to do to start your morning

I am 100% a morning person to my core.  I love my morning coffee. I love watching the sunrise.  I love having quiet alone time to myself. And even though I do love my sleep, waking up early and blogging, goal setting, meal prepping and getting workout’s in before 8 am just makes me giddy with excitement.  It just feels so good when I finally “start” my workday, knowing I got my most important things done first.
