    What I Keep In My Gym Bag

    Hi loves ❤️ Are you a recent Gym lover? Do you seem to never have what you need at the gym? One thing I struggled with when I first started consistently going to the gym was feeling under prepared. I wanted to pass my knowledge to all of you beginner gym rats. I am always prepared for the unexpected – and you can be too! My gym bag is just a simple Amazon find. My gym, Planet Fitness, provides you with a free bag when you sign up – but I never found the bag they provided was big enough. It definitely got me by for awhile. I love my…

    Food Prep VS. Meal Prep

    Hi loves❤️ I have been on my health and fitness journey for the past year. During this time, I have been learning different ways to make eating healthy quick and easy. I have found there are essentially two diffrent ways to prepare your food for the week ahead. Meal Prepping and Food Prepping are very similar, but there are a few differences. In the Health and Fitness industry, Meal prepping is hyped up a lot, but personally, I prefer Food Prepping instead. I love to mix it up and use a bit of meal prepping and food prepping each week to diversify what is in my fridge. When I have…

    My Top 3 Blends with Essential Oils

    Hi loves❤️ I always love trying new things that are more natural and have less chemicals in them. When I graduated college, I bought a few essential oils and have been dabbling in creating blends ever since. I have not dove deep into the essential oil world, but love watching people make blends from afar. I made my first blend when I was struggling with frequent headaches. I have made a few blends to use around the house as well. I have become more and more interested in the different oils and blends as time goes on. I have three diffusers in my house with at least one running at…

    Workouts for Vacation

    Hi loves❤️ WE ARE ON VACATION Today is our first full day on the beach. I am so excited to soak in the sun this week, but wanted to keep a little bit of my routine the same. To do this, I came up with a few workouts I can use while on the beach. This will also help me stick to my routine when we return from vacation.

The workouts below use mostly…

    Are You Drinking Enough Water?!

    Hi loves❤️ One essential nutrient that our body needs is H2O. The problem is, in 2018, it was found that 4 out of 5 individuals do NOT drink enough water daily. There are many bodily functions that can benefit with the correct intake of water. “Proper hydration is key not only to making sure we stay alert and energized, but also to keeping everything function in our bodies,” says Jaclyn London, MS,RD,CDN. Water can help hydrate your skin, aid in headaches, and keep your digestion in check. So my question to you….. Are You Drinking Enough Water?! A good rule of thumb is to take your weight and divide it…

    Hi loves❤️ Today I wanted to take some time to focus in on how to stay healthy when you are living a busy life. This can be for mom’s who split their time between working and taking care of their kids, people who are simply overworked and don’t have much time for personal care, or can be for individuals who need a few simple steps to keep them on track. I share these tips out of experience and am still trying to find complete balance (if that even exists) between all of my avenues in life. What does Being Healthy even mean? “Being Healthy” can become such a controversial topic…

    5 Medicine-Free Ways to Find Headache Relief

    Hi loves❤️ With the current weather here in Indiana, I have been experiencing headaches WAY too often this winter/spring (If you want to call snow in April SPRING). I typically start showing signs of a headache in the evening time and it will carry over into the next morning. I used to swear by taking a few Excedrin and go about my day – but lately, it wasn’t quite doing the trick. This month I have been exploring different ways to help my headaches without taking any medication. Some ways I have tried helped DRAMATICALLY, but others – not so much. My headaches are brutal and if I don’t catch…
