Goal Crusher

The minute that this line came out, it inspired me. “Goal crusher.” It just pumps me up to crush my goals! I paired it with my “free spirit” bra, which brought even more inspiration. A gypsy princess crushing her goals. Yes. I have definitely been teeter tottering with my goals lately. I am normally very disciplined at keeping my “eyes on my prize”, but recently… I haven’t cared. It is a goal of mine to workout at least 4x a week, but that hasn’t been happening. It is my goal to not eat processed foods, but yesterday I was deep into

Morning Routine

Let me first start by saying that I have never been a morning person. I like my bed and I love my sleep. That all changed, however, when I married Sam. Sam definitely is a morning person and he has rubbed off on me. It all started when we only had one car and I would have to drive him to school at 4:30am. Yes, 4:30AM. At first, it was tough, but after doing it for a week – it became easier! Mornings are the most productive time of the day for me now. I get up, make breakfast, do

Bundled

I really can’t complain – this has been one mild winter for us Michiganders! But man alive it was f-f-freeeezing the other day. Good thing I was prepared and still got my workout in. I’m not kidding, I am a grump if I don’t get my weekly workouts in. Not to mention the boundless amounts of energy I have. The other day I was really sore from a tough leg day, so I decided to stay home from the gym. When Sam came home that night he was just staring at me until I finally asked why… he looked at

Pre- & Post-Workout Habits

Working out. Something that most people make excuses for. “I’m tired”, “I don’t know what to do”, “I’m too sore.” Yes, some of those things may be true at the time, but it’s all about pushing through and getting your workout done! Even if that means going for a walk. BE ACTIVE! Not only will you feel more confident, but your mood will change. I promise you. Quick story. When Sam and I first moved away, I think I went into a mini depression. I went from working out quite frequently and being very familiar with all of the gyms in

Fitness Inspo + Workout

Happy happy FriYAY! I’ll never get tired of saying that. Weekends are ze best! I actually have to work weekends, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t love them. I still get more time with loved ones and there is always something fun to do! However, most of those fun things include fun food… so I love to start my weekends off with a killer workout. I get the most out of my workout when it is early in the morning. While walking to the gym, Andrea spotted this really pretty light as the sun was rising! Naturally, we paused for a photo

Top 5 Protein Bars

Do you ever stand in the grocery store, staring at the millions of protein bars and wonder “which do I choose?” or “which is the best for me”? I’ve definitely been there. Luckily, I have done my research and tested many bars to give you the top 5 best protein bars! What makes a protein bar the “best”? Here are some questions that I ask myself when looking for a yummy bar: 1) Does the company source organic, local, non-GMO, fair-trade ingredients? 2) What is the ratio of protein, fats, and carbohydrates? 3) Am I looking for a quick protein snack

Today’s Clean Meals (+ Workout!)

I got a lot of positive feedback after posting What I Ate Today (Detox), so I thought I would go ahead and make another post about my clean meals from today! Not going to lie, eating clean, wholesome foods all of the time can get tiring for some, including myself. However, if you stick to it, your body will thank you in so many ways. More energy, glowing skin, lean body, happy spirit! I also included my workout routine from today. It was a tough one, but I sure needed it! After being sick in bed for 3 days, you
