It’s holiday time again! I’m only putting together one gift guide this year, but it has items that I love from each important category: food, fitness, and self care. None of the items in this guide are sponsored, but there are a few affiliate links which means that I will get a small percentage of the sale while the price remains the same for you regardless. I’ve also worked with brands as I can to get you discount codes because every little bit helps! Happy shopping! For food lovers: 1. Sips By: This tea subscription box made my list last… View Post

Welcome to the end of another week! I did a survey on Instagram asking where to find inexpensive house plants because everywhere I’ve gone is SO expensive. A lot of you said that IKEA has a lot of cheap plants, so Neil and I are on a mission to go there this weekend and scout them out. IKEA is a big trip any day of the week, but it’s at least an hour outside of the city here so it’ll likely be an all day adventure. Even if I don’t find a plant I want, you can always find something… View Post

A few weeks ago I re-injured an old back issue I had from a couple years ago. It was due to rushing through a workout and not being as careful with my form as I should have been.

I wasn’t even able to demonstrate some of the movements while I was still teaching classes. I did a lot of… View Post

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 was provided with a Women’s Health and Fertility test from EverlyWell at no charge. Thanks as always for the support! You may remember that a little over a year ago I did a food sensitivity test with EverlyWell. It was one of the things that I had wanted to do since I started blogging, and it helped me feel legit as I worked on growing this corner of the internet. The other was to go on a sponsored influencer trip, which also happened last year, so I felt like I had MADE IT. When they contacted me this year… View Post
