Raise your hand if you are sick and tired of all the “rules” that come with living a healthy lifestyle.

You guys… I want to let you in on a secret:

It’s about investing in yourself!

You know when you feel great. You know when you have energy. You...

Goal-Setting Tips For The New Year

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.

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.
