Prepping for a Reset Cleanse

What I love about Spring is it's a great time to do some cleaning. Whether that be something in your house, your environment, or your life, making way for more inviting possibilities by cleaning out the old cobwebs always feels amazing. The past few weeks I've been having some digestive upset so what better time... Continue Reading →

Nothing Changes if Nothing Changes

Have you ever felt stuck? Continuing to do the things that are supposed to help you get healthy, lose weight, propel your career etc. but it just doesn't seem to be working? Sometimes we think we know what to do, it worked for everyone else, why not me? Well here's a secret; you are not... Continue Reading →

CSA Saturday 3&4

So I'm one month in  to my CSA program and it has been fun experimenting and using the herbs and veggies in various recipes. Bonus week 3 I got some gorgeous fresh tulips and daffodils that I tromped through the mud and rain to cut myself, worth it! I have a lot of faux flower... Continue Reading →

What Is Your Relationship With Money?

What is your relationship with money? Are you a spender or a saver? How do you label expenses and investments? I ask these questions because this is something that I struggle with. It seems my mind always comes back to the money. Why is that? In my health coaching program I learned that the stories... Continue Reading →

Spring Ahead & Sleep

Well today we moved the clocks forward an hour which always throws off my sleep rhythm.

When we are sleeping our bodies... Continue Reading →

Clearing The Clutter

A few days ago something really weird happened. I forgot about an appointment I had scheduled AND I forgot to meal prep for one of my clients. Now luckily, I remembered in enough time to complete the meals before heading to bed that night, but the other, totally spaced.  I am not one to put... Continue Reading →

Instant Pot Bone Broth

A few months ago I posted about bone broth and I have since upgraded from Crockpot to InstantPot. Nothing against using a Crockpot to make bone broth but going from 12 hours to 2 hours in the InstantPot is a game changer. I use bones from cooked whole chickens, venison, beef, or lamb, pretty much... Continue Reading →

Kicking The Gum Habit

I have been a gum chewer for as long as I can remember. Playing softball growing up it was common to have a big piece of Bubblicious (not sugar-free) every game and practice. As I got older, thankfully not getting any cavities as a result, I switched to sugar-free gum to keep my teeth healthy.... Continue Reading →

New Year Goal Setting

So many people make New Year's resolutions but only about 8% of them follow through, why is that? Well mainly because their resolution lacks one or many of the following: passion, measurability, accountability, or a plan. Lose weight, eat better, exercise, drink more water, these are all great goals, but very broad and lacking a... Continue Reading →

I have seen the studio grow from a small space offering Pilates and yoga; expanding to a space probably 10 times the size and incorporating hot yoga, barre, Zumba, boot camp, and TRX. I have been so lucky that as... Continue Reading →
