{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.

watermelon juice

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

AMAZING Watermelon Juice

As soon as I tasted this wonderfully, AMAZING juice I knew I had to share this!

It is SO SO easy yet so satisfying!

watermelon juice

1/3 of a LARGE seedless watermelon, or a blender full (you can make as little or as much juice as you want)
10 frozen strawberries

Blend Blend Blend! Blend your watermelon first. Since watermelon is mostly water you don’t have to add any liquid. After your watermelon is liquid, add your strawberries and blend again.

This juice is SUPER sweet and refreshing!

You can also add frozen mango chunks for a creamy texture.

Try it for breakfast and feel energy ALL day long!
