Goal-Setting Tips For The New Year

goal-setting gratitude Dec 31, 2017

It’s the last day of 2017! Can you believe it?!

Last week I mentioned you shouldn’t let the shenanigans of the new year (AKA those trendy resolutions) stop you from recognizing how much of a badass you are RIGHT NOW and all you’ve accomplished.

But there’s no rule that says you can’t maintain your gratitude for the present moment without looking ahead and striving to do better.

So today, I want to talk about goal setting… and not the “goal...

You are awesome, right now, as you are!

goal-setting motivation Dec 23, 2017

The end of the year is coming up, which usually means three things:

  • Tons of delicious food
  • Time with family and friends
  • A mad frenzy where we get ultra-focused on the new year & our resolutions

Now don’t get me wrong… I’m all for goal setting! But you know what I’ve noticed?

We transition into the new year so quickly that we lose sight of what we’ve accomplished this year and all that we have to be grateful for RIGHT NOW!

So as you head into the holidays,...

Who surrounds you?

This week I spent two full days in a room for of chandeliers, flashing lights, the song "Everything Is Awesome" on repeat, and an immense amount of positive energy.

I was attending a business workshop where entrepreneurs gathered to learn, become inspired to take action, and meet other like-minded individuals who aspire to impact others across the globe.

Sitting next to so many positive individuals had me thinking about the power of community… the power of a support system… and...

"Nooo, not meatloaf for dinner AGAIN!"

Have you ever heard a similar sentiment?!

Perhaps you aren't eating meatloaf seven times per week, but I'm going to guess you also aren't eating new and exciting meals every-single-night.

Or you know that feeling when you've been going out to eat so frequently, but you don't really realize it until you look at your bank account?

Yea... I know that feeling.

I swear there have been times in my life where you could learn my favorite restaurants just by...

Your Health Is Not An Expense

Uncategorized Nov 10, 2017

It's time for some real talk...

Amongst the Jazzy recipes showing up in your inbox, I wanted to take a minute to talk about a question I think we should ask ourselves:

What does "HEALTHY" really even mean?

To me, healthy means whatever YOU define it as. It doesn't mean that diet program you see on a FB Ad, it's not the cliche terms & fads floating around, it's not only what your neighbor is doing or the hot product on the HSN.

To me... "healthy" is living a lifestyle where you invest in...

Meatless Monday: Luxurious Herb Potatoes

I have to admit…I need more balance in my life. I have been eating out far too much, and have skipped the gym more often than I admit. But, don’t worry I love to give myself grace, so I won’t beat myself up about it. However, somethings need to change. Time to take adulting to a new level.

Time to say goodbye to an empty fridge, endless cheat meals, and silly “I’ll start tomorrow” excuses. 

The Your Dinner Is Planned Community inspires me to make a...

I am not one to meal prep. I definitely have food prep envy though, that level of discipline is #goals. But, what makes things worse, is I am terrible at eating leftovers. It's not that I don't like leftovers, I do. I just like eating out more? Or maybe I like not having to dishes more? Either way. If I did meal prep, this Not Your Basic Rice Bowl would be on monthly ration. 

As with most of these posts. There are many different variations you could do with this, which is what...

Meatless Monday: One Pan Pasta

Is there anything better for a Saturday Date Night at home then Pasta? Especially after binge watching Netflix all day!?
