{Weekend Love}

Hey clean eaters! How has the weekend been for you?

I have been dealing with a head cold for the past few days and today it finally broke and hit me hard. Plugged up ears, soar through, stuffy nose… I guess cold season is here! Jordan has been a little stuffy this week, too. Kids and their germs – it’s the gift that keeps on giving! lol

I have been upping my shakes and smoothies as this helps with my sore throat and it’s a great way to get my fruits and vegetables in.

This pink beauty is my beloved watermelon juice with frozen strawberries! Oh man, I could live off of these!


I switched it up this morning and had a purple smoothie that was to die for! Blueberries, strawberries, spinach, orange juice, protein powder, water and almond milk. I felt much better after this!

What are your favorite ingredients for your smoothies and shakes?

The past few days I have been hiding out inside of my house. Not because I have been sick but because I have been brainstorming, building my future, analyzing my fears and passions and paving my own journey. I have been loving every single second of it!


I had a powerful call with my dear friend, and coach, Kris from I Heart Wellness. She is AMAZING! So strong, so driven and just being on the phone with her make my passions come alive and allows me to see my own unique vision! In my opinion, everyone needs to have a coach in life. Someone to trust, to confide in and someone to tell you the steps you need to take in order to see greatness in your life! Even if you are coach! It’s so refreshing to get a new perspective on life!

Here’s the skinny: I will be turning 30 next month. And as much as I don’t think it’s a big deal, subconsciously I think I’m freaking out. I love parts about my current life and there are things that I thought would be different. So I’m taking inventory, setting goals and making a plan of action!

Some of my goals are relationship goals, physical goals, emotional goals, life goals… I have been running on my own positive fuel the past 48 hours!

Lots of good things are coming!

Over the next week I will be sharing some of my goals and dreams with all of you. One thing that I always tell my own coaching clients is to write your goals down. Remember: goals need to be specific with dates.

I have a great goal exercise that I will be sharing with you soon! 🙂

I am off to do more journaling, brainstorming and planning!

I will leave you with this ADORABLE picture that Jordan made – apparently it’s a portrait of ME! lol

Dreams and Goals

Sunday Dreaming

Hello beautiful!

Happy Sunday! Are you enjoying your day so far? I am sitting here with my coffee and I am completely enjoying my morning! I feel so blessed to be where I am right now – I am helping people with their health and weight, making positive changes in lives and being able to sit comfortably from my living room. I have the biggest smile on my face right now!


Are you smiling right now?

For years I have been searching for my smile. I felt lost and off a path that I knew I should have been on. I have HUGE dreams and passions but I never really understood HOW to achieve them. I thought I was failing at something… I thought I was failing at life. And I will admit that sometimes I still feel I am off of my path but recently it is much more clear!

Here are some tools that have helped me feel as though I was working in the right direction!

  • Start writing them down! Dreams will continue to stay dreams until you write them down!
  • Start attaching goals to those dreams. Goals are action items that have a deadline.
  • Start breaking your goals up into smaller goals. It’s important to understand that there are small steps to take to get you where you need to be. These smaller steps also create motivation because there is a sense of achievement every time you complete a task!
  • Get help! Do you feel that you simply cannot get where you want to go? Contact a professional coach, talk with a family member that owns their own business or talk with someone that is in the industry that you are wanting to get in to! Everyone is very passionate about their life of work and I bet they would be excited to share their story with you!

Whatever your goals and dreams are, believe in yourself! Believe that you have the power to be whoever you want to be!

Stay beautiful, stay healthy, stay YOU!
