6 Ways to Take Rest

This may come as no surprise to some of you, but when it comes to taking rest, I’m pretty bad at it. I know and understand the importance of rest days in my workouts, but what about the rest of my life? Just give me a big ol’ F.

I work hard and I enjoy working hard and being busy, but I forget that sometimes it’s okay to be a little “bored” or not do much of anything beside lounge on the couch and binge watch my current Netflix show. Weekends don’t need to be about running ALL the errands, getting in ALL the workouts, and working on blogging AND freelance writing in between the rest of it.

Spring 2017 StitchFix

I got my second StitchFix fix yesterday and I thought it would be fun to share you with what was included, what I’ve decided to keep and what I am going to send back.

I think I dumped it out, thinking it was something that came from the coffee pot, only to find out after that he had put butter in his coffee.


In his coffee. Continue reading “Dairy-Free Fat Fueled Coffee”

A Day in the Life

Some of my most popular posts over on TLSM were “a day in the life” posts. I love writing them and documenting my day and then hearing how everyone else’s days go in comparison. We all have our own unique routines and I always find there’s something new to learn or take away from someone’s habits. Here’s my day…

4:15am – Alarm goes off,  up and out of bed immediately. After waking up exhausted and sore the last 2 days, it was great to wake up with energy and ready to start my day. I scroll through my phone for a few (I know! Bad habit!), change for the gym and take a swig of iced coffee from the fridge.
