Almost forgot to post this one... NEW BLOG!! “January Detox Meal Ideas” . . As I promised in my last blog I wanted to share some recipe ideas to try for the January Detox! . . Whenever I read a blog or book about health, diets, detoxes, whatever it is. I find that people will often tell you what types of foods to eat, but not HOW to eat them. . . When I used to see kale or beets listed as a good detoxing vegetable, I would ask myself how the f*** do you eat that without it tasting awful and wanting to die?? . . Luckily for you, I have figured that part out.😉 . . In this weeks blog I have listed some of my favorite recipes that include many of the foods I talked about in my previous “The MUCH needed January Detox” blog. . . And don’t worry... it’s not a garden salad with a side of chicken🤢. . . Check it out and try them out! . . #mindfulmillennial #eatwithem #healthyliving #mindfuleating
If you have followed me at all the past couple days you would have noticed I wasn’t in CT.. . I was in the beautiful sunshine state of Florida at @msrachelhollis RISE @letsrise.co women’s conference. And it was epic. . My cousin started this after family trips so I thought I would share it here today- the highlights, low lights and weirdos of the trip! . And you better KNOW that a blog is coming soon. 😉 . . Highlights: Being able to go with one of my best friends @carolinelswanson - Warm weather every day in Florida Beans and her dancing moves 💃🏼 Stacey’s epic talk Dave Hollis’s epic talk Staying in an air bnb and not a hotel so we could cook dinner and breakfast 🥑🍳 The swag bag which included a workbook, free hat, and start today journal 📗 The energy level of all the women 🔥 The fact that is was specifically a women’s conference 💁🏼♀️ Rachel- obviously - how much she truly cares about what’s she’s doing the women she’s supporting and the community she has created How kind all the people were and that’s they were genuinely there to be the best version of themselves 🤟🏻 Guilty pleasure game 🎶🎵 Own your past- and letting go of your old stories you are telling yourself Really all of the content there Meeting really cool people on the flights✈️ Dancing like no one was watching 👯♀️ Coconut shrimp 🍤 Walking away feeling totally empowered, inspired, and like I can do absolutely anything I set my mind too✨ . Low lights: Lines for lunch 🦛 Lines to the bathroom- again this was an all women’s conference... no further explanation needed . Weirdos : Thinking it was a good idea to eat just tuna salad and a boiled egg at 10 am before my final flight home 🤢 Spilling coffee and then mustard on my white shirt one day and then parking the and forgetting to actually put it IN park and then get out... while it rolls away 🤦🏼♀️ . Obviously the highlights Way outweigh the potential negatives. It was honestly an amazing conference, I had an amazing time, and I am feeing SO ready to take on my dreams and goals. . My dad always says, “The best investment you can make is in yourself.” . What investment are you going to make in YOURSELF?
NEW BLOG!! “The MUCH needed January Detox” 🍵🥦🍎🍓🥒🧄🧅 . . I got the idea for this blog right after New Years when I was having brunch with some of my girlfriends. 👯♀️👯♀️ . . We were all talking about how we felt like we needed to detox after the holiday season, which made me think maybe we weren’t the only new feeling that way. So I quickly wrote this blog about the type of detox I am doing this January! 💁🏼♀️ . . Now when I say detox, I don’t mean doing a juice cleanse, or to only eat kale, or just consume chicken broth with a side of air and ice chips. 🙅🏼♀️ . . Been there, done that. And: 1.It totally sucks 2.I hated it 3.It’s the worst thing ever. . . I always find a holistic “slow and steady” approach has always worked best for me, so I wanted to share it with you too! . . Check it out and let me know what you think!!! . . #mindfulmillennial #januarychallenge #januarydetox #healthyliving #eatwithem
NEW BLOG!! “Actually, I can”. Hey friends 👋🏻 Happy New Year and Welcome to 2020!!! . . If you don’t know already I LOVE the new year. I love the planning and daydreaming and strategizing on how to get that next new dream or goal in the year to come. . . I get giddy like a kid in a candy shop when I have my new blank notebook and calendar just waiting for me to fill it in with my hopes and dreams. 🤗📝 . . But today I don’t want to talk about goal setting. I have other great blogs that break that down for you step by step. . . Instead, today I want to talk about looking back at the past year(s), remembering how far you have come and all the obstacles you overcame. I want to focus on pumping yourself up to see how much of a badass you already are. 😎 . . Your mental state and beliefs are everything when you are about to set off on a new adventure. . . Today we are honing in on that good feeling of, “Actually, I can”. So when we are looking into the future, and dreaming about our new goals we are in the mindset of “Actually, I can” 😉💪🏻 . . Check out my blog to see the hard times I have overcame when I proved to myself that “Actually, I can” - even when no one believed I could. . . #mindfulmillennial #growthmindset #actuallyican #newyeargoals
Jumping on the 2019 “year in review” bandwagon 💁🏼♀️ . . 2019 was really really awesome and really really sad. . . I actually wrote in my journal this morning that I was thankful that I got through the year and that it ended better than I thought it could. . . With loss, it forces you to remember and be grateful for every little detail. Details of the past, present and future. . . And with time, you are able to see through the clouds again, and I am always reminded that everything will always turn around. And everything will always be okay. 💛 . . Looking at 2020 with a grateful heart. Grateful for what I had, for what I have, and for what’s on the way. . . #happynewyear #mindfulmillennial
