JULY 15 - JULY 20, 2019

Happy Saturday, Friends! This week I was in North Chicago on a work-related trip. I didn’t have much time for my biz, but did have some fun!

Here are my highlights this week:

BOOKS

The Four Agreements

This book was sent to me by James Wedmore. I knew about it, but have never read it. Here’s the synopsis from Amazon: “In The Four Agreements, bestselling author don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, The Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

After drinking Starbucks coffee multiple days on the road, I was ready to come home to my favorite coffee. I go to Amethyst Coffee shop in Denver for this special treat. They make their own cashew milk for drinks. I add the...

BOOKS

FAVORITE RECIPE

Raspberry Margarita

It’s been in the 90s all week, and I crave tart-sweet and refreshing beverages. When I first made this, I forgot to add Tequila, and it was delightful. This recipe is flexible, so feel free to skip the booze or sub in your favorite alcohol: Gin, Vodka or White Rum!

Ingredients:

  • Juice of 1.5 limes

  • 10 raspberries

JULY 1 - JULY 6, 2019

Happy July, Friends! This week marked my last day at my freelance job at o2 Group. I’ve worked at this company on an off for NINE years. That’s right…It was my first job out of college.

In fact, I applied there after finding an apartment across the street - they were not even hiring. I knew I wanted to work there and set it in motion. I reached them at the right time, and we’ve been together ever since.

With recent alignment and MAJOR signs from the Universe, I realized it was time for me to close this chapter. My energy and focus will be directed toward Alignful, my upcoming workshop and the launch of the Shameless Self-Care membership (coming in September!). I will also help my mom in her business.

Lots of transformation on the horizon!

Here are my highlights this week:

JUNE 24 - JUNE 29, 2019

This week I was able to deep-dive into my inner voice and have been able to hear it during the day. This is both exciting and nerve-wracking. I also took a big leap and let go of a freelance job that I’ve had for years. While I feel sadness for what is lost, I also feel abundance and joy for what is to come. I am ready to step into Alignful and create big, beautiful change with this work. As my inner voice says… “You do not have to hold on to be held. Letting go is a chance for you to grow.”

Here are my highlights this week:

BOOKS

Flow - The Psychology Of Optimal Experience

I bought this book a while ago but wasn’t ready to dive in. I presented at a wellness conference this week, and the keynote speaker referenced this book by Russian Psychologist, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. I decided to start reading it again. It’s all about the science of the “flow state” and how we can all work with more ease and joy when we...

JUNE 17 - JUNE 21, 2019

Let me just say, this week was FULL of highs and lows. It was an emotional roller coaster, and I was simply a passenger on the ride. I’m pretty sure I have felt every emotion: from deep sorry and loss, to frustration and anger, pure happiness and elation, and general depletion.

BOOKS

The Gray Man

I am a lover of Lee Child and his famous Jack Reacher novels. Unfortunately, I have read all of them, and was in need of a similar read to get through this week. I discovered The Gray Man series by Mark Greaney. It’s about an ex-CIA black-ops agent who got burned and his new life as a hired hit-man on the run. The stress!! It is exactly the kind of book I like to read when my emotions are tapped out. It’s a way to escape and enjoy. I’m already on the second book in the series.

FAVORITE RECIPE

Pesto!

If you’ve followed my instagram stories, you know I am semi-doing a liver cleanse from the Medical Medium Liver Rescue book. While I am not...

A Week in Review (Edition #1)

I’m starting a new blog series called A Week in Review where I will share quick updates with you from my previous week.

The purpose of this series is to give you more information about products I like, recipes, books/podcasts, things I’m into, product updates/sales and quick links.

WHY?

Well, I have a LOT to share. Most of my sharing happens on Instagram Stories (if you aren’t following then you are missing out!) or in my DMs. Unfortunately Instagram is not a great place to keep track of things, especially if YOU want to look back and see the product I recommended, the recipe I shared, or the “pro tip” I swear by.

Enter BLOG POSTS! The lost art is BACK! This way I can keep my email list short, sweet and USEFUL, keep my Instagram posts fun, and still have great resources for you to reference whenever you want. Let’s do this!

Self-Care While Sick

Uncategorized May 24, 2019

This week was no different, my last IG post talked about my Sick Habit (spoiler alert, it involves me getting mad a John). 

Today I want to share a few Self-Care While Sick tools for you

Consider These As Reminders For The Next Time You Are In Bed, With A Fever And Feeling Desperate (Err… You May Want To Keep This Post Handy).

**I also have a full video and blog post called "Health While Sick" that covers my Sickness Protocol. 

SELF-CARE WHILE SICK:

Don't resist: This does not mean you are giving in. Resistance creates inner turmoil and often leads to you feeling BAD about feeling bad. NOT FUN. Recognize how you feel, and start taking care of yourself.

Rest: While we don't all have the luxury to take full days off when sick (which is bonkers, btw), we can slow down. Go to bed early, cancel morning meetings and commit to more rest. Rest is one of the best ways to take care of yourself- you can step back and allow your body to handle the...

Mindful Movement

Uncategorized May 20, 2019

ONE OF MY SELF-CARE SECRETS IS MOVEMENT!

Unlike most people, I do not schedule my workouts, follow a specific plan or “commit” to moving a certain amount each week.

I don’t even like to use the term “exercise” or “workout” because saying “movement” feels more aligned. I move when my body asks for it, in ways that my body appreciates.

IMG_2461.jpeg

Sometimes, this means hops around the house, do handstands and skip to music. Other times, it’s a formal class where I get to hone in on my Bowspring practice. Often, it simply means a few minutes of jumping on my mini trampoline during the day and 10 minutes of Bowspring stretches and breathing before bed.

Over the years I’ve trained my body (and mind!) to be movement oriented, but not movement driven.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

For one, I never exercise out of guilt or obligation. I don’t value my workout days over my non-workout days, and I never shame myself when I don’t...

On Being Sweet…without Sugar (+ a recipe)

Uncategorized Apr 19, 2019

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE SWEET?

People used to call me SWEET all the time. Frankly, it always irked me to constantly hear “You are sweet and cute!” I didn’t want people to think of me that way. I wanted to be seen as Strong, Confident, Empowered and Hot!

I Felt This Way Because I Viewed Being ““Sweet” As Weak, Submissive And Generic

Obviously that’s my own perception of the phrase. Yet, I also tended to embody those qualities. I used to be a people pleaser: type A, put everyone first, doubt myself and sooo sweet. Like artificial sweetener… it was too sweet and didn’t feel right.

That was before… I have since embraced a new version of sweetness.

  • I am kind, compassionate, loving and authentic

  • I share my heart and express my love and gratitude with abandon

  • I am also strong, connected, committed and unwavering in my love for myself

  • I put myself first, take care of my needs and then freely give to others

I now think...

Spring Sipper - Cocktail (or Mocktail) Recipe

Uncategorized Apr 05, 2019

SPRING IS HERE, SPRING IS HERE!

We are jumping for joy! Spring in Colorado means more daylight, longer days and fresh beverages.

IMG_6548.JPG

My alcoholic drink in the winter is red wine and an occasional Old Fashioned. Spring opens up new opportunities to be creative and make fresh, tasty cocktails (or mocktails). Even if I’m not having alcohol, I enjoy having a “special” drink at the end of the day.

This cocktail was inspired by a new loose leaf tea I bought. It has elderberry, reships, cinnamon, astragalus, lycii berry, cardamom and licorice. You can use any berry infused tea. If you can’t find that, I recommend using my all-time favorite tea, Hibiscus.

This recipe is tart and refreshing with just enough sweet to round out the flavors. I like to serve it in a big glass with a metal straw and a slice of orange or lemon as a garnish. Just because you are drinking at home, doesn’t mean you can’t style your beverage.
