• 40 Day Fitness Challenge: Day 4

    When I am working out every day I like to have two days during the week that are low key. It could be a light jog, a walk, some stretching, basic yoga, etc. Something that is going to stimulate my body, but still get it moving and get that blood flowing from my veins. I don’t want to overdo it… [Continue Reading]

  • 100 Things I’m Thankful For As I Enter 2017

    One of the ways I like to start the new year is listing everything that I’m thankful for. It’s so easy to think of the bad things that happened in the previous year and have a good riddance type attitude when thinking about it, but the fact of the matter is there was a lot of good that happened. That… [Continue Reading]

  • 40 Day Fitness Challenge: Day 1

    Postpartum is an interesting time in life. I have found that so much of my time (aside from caring for the baby, obviously) has been just trying to get back into some sort of routine. One of the areas that I really miss is working out every day. Oh sure, I’ve been doing it 2-3 times a week, but I… [Continue Reading]

  • A New Bloom

    I never realized that I could love the desert so much. Living in Arizona is like going back to a pre-historic land where the dinosaurs roam and the plants are fierce in their own right. Oh sure when most people think of the desert they immediately think of heat… hello dear sun. But there is so much more. It’s a different… [Continue Reading]

  • Saturday’s Wedding

    I love weddings. Saturday my hubby and I got all dressed up (first time since the baby, wahoo wahoo!) and saw some beautiful friends of ours tie the knot. Seriously, they are stunning… Photo by: Haley McMackin Photography See? Told you. Stunning. They will have gorgeous children. Anyway I digress. I just have to talk about this wedding because it was… [Continue Reading]

40 Day Fitness Challenge: Day 9

One of my favorite tools for working out is the rebounder. That’s because when you move on it, there is a vibrational component that doesn’t come from normal exercise. This can help shake up stubborn fat cells, as well as it can help detoxify cells and boost your energy. Can I get a whoop whoop?? I’m looking at you side…

40 Day Fitness Challenge: Days 7 and 8

Day 7 Yesterday was a day of rest for me. Granted, I have a 6 month old so rest is a relative term. One of my favorite things to do on a rest day is take a long, slow walk; a stroll if you will. It so rejuvenates my mind and gets the creative juice flowing. It’s a great way…

40 Day Fitness Challenge: Day 6

I’ve almost made it a full week! Every mom out there knows how big of a milestone this is! People let me tell you. My child is a wonderful child. She is so joyful and happy, but she has been going through it this week! She is teething again, and just has a hard time with it. On top of…

My Sad Elephant Sound

When you are entering parenthood for the first time you tend to think that you can handle it. I know I did. You read the baby books. Then talk with your doctors. You are on top of the world. No challenge is too great for you to handle. You got this. Then you have a baby, and you realize all…

40 Day Fitness Challenge: Day 5

Today’s workout is a fun one. Originally I was going to do a different workout but that requires dumbbells. However we just moved so I currently have no idea where they are at. Thus I came up with a challenging workout that can be done without the aid of workout equipment. This one for me got broken up into two…

40 Day Fitness Challenge: Day 3

Today was a good day for training, albeit waking up with a headache was not the most ideal of circumstances. It did not hold me back though, and I was able to do my workout without it slowing me down. Always a good feeling. Some days you just have to muscle through it, you know? There are those days where…

40 Day Fitness Challenge: Day 2

All right you all, day 2 of this fitness challenge. I’m going to be real. I did not want to do anything today, seriously. I was so tired from yesterday’s workout. I wanted nothing more than to lounge around. While I did do that, I had a 10 minute workout to do today, so I figured I could make time…

22 Life-Changing Habits of Highly Successful, Positive People

Over the course of my life I have been fortunate enough to meet quite a few amazingly successful people. Every single one of these people have a different definition of success. For some it is balance, while for others it is becoming rich, or influential, or having a good family life, or avoiding “the man” altogether. Whatever their view of success…
