2020 Vision

Happy New Year!

I’m not one for ‘resolutions’ because why wait for a new year to start making a change? I do however love the excitement, cleanse, empowerment and optimism that surrounds a new year.

I do love setting realistic, achievable goals for the new year on Jan 1. In 2019 I made some serious changes and crushed some serious goals. I lost 50 pounds, I practiced an act of self-care monthly, became comfortable with being misunderstood, and turned my focus to the family that loves & supports us.

I’ve got even bigger goals for 2020. Follow along for all my weight-loss tips, tasty recipes, favorite things and more!

As always, cocktails & curse words included!

They’re totally versatile and can easily be changed to avoid repetition. Plus, they will fit in any gluten free, paleo or Whole30 lifestyle you’re doing! Continue reading

I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it a few more times…

Green smoothies are my favorite go-to breakfast!

They’re quick, easy, filling and best of all, healthy! [this smoothie is right under 300 calories] But they aren’t so quick & easy if you have to slice & dice all your fruits and such in the morning, not to mention not all of those fruits will last long enough for you to make all your smoothies [damn you perishable items]. So here is my take on how to “meal prep” your smoothies ahead of time – ensuring they’re always quick, easy and oh so tasty! Continue reading
