Aaaand we’re back with the first Five Things Friday post of the new year as well as the first in two weeks. That means I have two weeks of things stockpiled to share with you. 🙂 This weekend is pretty light, so I’ll likely be camped out around the house for most of it. Neil and I are almost done with the last season of Game of Thrones, so that will likely be wrapped up then and we can join the masses who anxiously await 2019 for the next and last season. Here’s some of my favorites from this week… View Post

I’ve noticed throughout my time online that there has been a big movement towards natural living and natural products. While I’m not 100% there, I am looking to make some shifts towards a more natural lifestyle in this coming year. This post is sponsored by Fresh Thyme.

Alright guys, we are back in the swing of things. I took a good 10 or so days off the blog which were much needed and left me itching to get back on here.

The last time I was there was for New Year’s and I definitely wasn’t in recovery then, so it’s safe to say that this was basically a fresh… View Post

Alright guys, here it is! It’s the weekend before Christmas. Hopefully you have all your holiday shopping done, but I know I still have a couple things to pick up today. #lastminuteshopper This week and next will be pretty slow because a couple of my clients are on vacation for the holidays. I plan to spend that time relaxing and working on finishing up planning content for 2018. I know many of you already filled out this survey, but if there’s anything you want to see in the new year, let me know in the comments! To kick off the… View Post

The short of it is that it’s no different from fitness at any other point of the year. There’s something about the end of the year that causes people to look back and reevaluate how the previous 12 months have gone. Did they accomplish the goals they set this time last year?
