What I Learned From Yoga Training

What I Learned From Yoga Training

You HAD to know that a reflective and emotional blog was coming your way as soon as you found out I was going for my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. I love learning and trying new things and then talking about them. It’s partially why I even started this blog. So, of course, I was going to share this experience with you. =]  Continue reading “What I Learned From Yoga Training”

Karma in Puerto Rico

Karma in Puerto Rico

My sister and I just went on a yoga retreat in Puerto Rico and had an amazing time. We met really cool new people, we tried new things (like surfing!), experienced a new place, and did lots and lots of yoga. It was epic.

At the beginning of the retreat, our teachers said that their theme of the week was this idea of “Karma”. At first, I thought that was a funny theme because my understanding of karma was you get what you deserve. You did something bad so now something bad has to happen to you. Not very yoga-like but thankfully, I was very wrong.

They explained to us that there is a big misconception around the meaning of karma. In Buddhism, karma is an energy created by willful action, through thoughts words and deeds. Continue reading “Karma in Puerto Rico”

The love edition – Relationships

The love edition – Relationships

This blog was meant to go out for Valentine’s Day, which is over a week ago now, but I still liked the content so I am going with the, “better late than never!” mindset.  😉

 

Since Valentine’s Day is all about love and my love’s (Dan) birthday was February 13th I wanted to talk about relationships.  

As a disclaimer, Dan and my relationship is nowhere near perfect.  We bicker when we are tired or overwhelmed, but for the most part, we get along really well.  And most importantly we have a deep love, respect, and appreciation for one another. We haven’t always been here, but we get a little better every day.

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”
