The Master Cleanse

If you follow me on Instagram, then you may recall that I spent the first half of my Spring Break last month doing something called The Master Cleanse. I spent the second half doing the exact opposite (eating and drinking adult bevs) around Austin. If you were wondering what the heck The Master Cleanse was, then today you’re in luck. I’m talking about what it is, why on earth I did it, and my thoughts about…

White Workout Gear

shop the look: When I bought this marble print workout set, one of my friends asked if I was crazy because white often makes you look bigger. This may be why you see SO many black workout outfits. I’m a fan of black, always, especially with workout gear, but I wanted to switch it up. One, I love marble anything. Plus, white for Spring is just fresh and happy. But, finally, when I’m in the…

Ten Tips to Keep you Motivated

Shop the look:   It’s mid-February.. how ya doing on those New Years Goals? I made it through a January Whole 30, celebrated for a night, went back to it for two days, then took a weekend off. Now, I’m back to Whole 30-ish lifestyle but have included honey, maple syrup, agave, or other natural sweeteners. It just makes life easier and makes this more sustainable for me. I’m in wedding-prep mode so there are…

Whole 30: Favorite Recipes & Week 1 Check in

If you’re doing a January Whole 30 then go ahead and pat yourself on the back because if you started when the official one began on January 2nd, then you have (almost) completed your first week. Woo! If you’re new here and aren’t sure what a Whole 30 is, you can read about my journey with it here. I’ve done quite a few before and I remember looking back and asking myself countless times “is this…

Get it Right, Get it Tight

Happy Victoria’s Secret Fashion show day. Who else plans to watch alongside their girlfriends while drinking wine and eating things that you assume the models avoided while prepping for the show? I’m sure we’ll all be feeling reaaaalll motivated to workout after watching, so I decided a new workout post was in order to give you a new workout that you can do ANYwhere. As a bride-to-be, you usually want to elevate your diet and…

October Tricep Challenge

Let’s start your week off with a little #MotivationMonday. I love the start of a new month, week, or even day to change your mindset. It’s a great time to reset your intention and make better choices. That’s why my ‘Never Miss a Monday’ mentality works so well. If you start your week out on a positive note making good choices, you’ll be more likely to keep them up through the week. With a wedding…

No Equipment Arm Workout

Arms are definitely an area I neglected for far too long. I’m not really sure why though. Ever heard of the skinny arm? I mean c’mon, you’re taking a picture and stand with your arm on hip to angle it and make it appear smaller. It flatters your overall figure. That is why all the stars pose that way on the red carpet and is something I’ve done in pictures since high school. Arms are…

Do anywhere leg workout

One of the biggest excuses I find for skipping a workout is travel. I may be staying somewhere that doesn’t have a gym or my schedule is pretty packed. Having a work out that I can do quickly and efficiently with little to no equipment is important to help this not be an issue. To help you, I’m sharing a do anywhere leg workout. This outfit is from Bandier– which I posted about here. Just like…

List it out

List it out honey, put it in the book. Okay, so maybe it was “let” and not “list” in Mean Girls. They may have also not been being positive either. Regardless, writing is an effective strategy I use for coping with those tougher days or to re-prioritize, refocus, and remind myself of all the good in life. It’s especially effective if you’re a Type A, completely organized, slightly perfectionistic person like myself. As someone who…

The Whole 30

You may have heard of the Whole 30 before. Maybe you have a friend who was your DD for 30 days because they weren’t drinking. Maybe you noticed someone asking a lot of questions about what ingredients restaurants use when cooking their food. Maybe you’ve seen the book on the best seller list. Maybe you don’t know more than it requires cutting a lot of things out of your diet. Or, you may have never…

Healthy on the go snacks

It’s not always easy to eat healthy when you are on the go. This is especially true when traveling. The food you find in airports and that is served on planes is not only unhealthy, but often extremely unappealing. What I am eating when I travel often depends on where I am going. If I am beach bound, you’d better believe I am trying to my best (usually) to eat good before suiting up. Although…
