What’s in your water?!



I used to be a habitual pop drinker. I would flip between the the Pepsi Camp and Coke Camp so often.  I had a crazy addiction to pop and sugar.

While Alex and I were out at the One of a Kind show last spring there was a booth for soda stream. I thought heck it’s affordable maybe we should give it a shot and make our own pop.  Within a few months I was just making the carbonated water and mixing it half and half with juice. Then over time less and less juice.

Now I drink just flat water or carbonated water. If I have it carbonated and want a little something extra I add on sliced fruit.  Such as lemom (seen above), orange, lime, berries and even mango.

I highly recommend this if your trying go cut out the crap.


Pre-Summit Fun

In case you didn’t know I have been off work and on an adventure. I am also a fitness coach and I have been exploring Chicago and Nashville before my annual Coaching Summit in Nashville. 

My trip started in the windy city – Chicago. I stayed in a super cute AirBNB in the Pilsen area. 

On Monday I got to explore a few stops. I went to the Alder Planetarium, The Field Museum and Cloud Park to see the Bean.

Now I am in Nashville getting all geared up for the Summit fun tomorrow. 


Long Weekends and Fitness


On a long weekend Saturday night in the past I would have been out eating bad food and drinking. I would have pushed myself to stay up until the wee hours of the morning sitting around gabbing and watching netflix.

This year after making some huge changes in my life I now stay home and have a lovely BBQ steak dinner with my Hunnie and finished my sweaty workout.   This is just one way my life has changed for the best.

What are you willing to change??

Chiseling my body!

Yahoo!! Hammer and Chisel – Chisel Cardio is done!! Oh how I had every excuse why I couldn’t do my workout today! After some grumbling I just did it. Was it hard? Yep. Did I want to cheat and not do the full 60 seconds for each rep? You betcha! Did I cheat? Thankfully, No. As Autumn Calabrese said right when I was ready to give up – our reason for starting this workout is bigger than all the BS excuses we make as to why we don’t have to.


Watch my workout here!

Did you know 70% of people who start a workout program QUIT?? Those 70% of people (who I was one of them) were really just quitting themselves!! I know I am more important and so are you!! I’d love for you to join my upcoming fitness accountability group!! Ask me how you can be part of it with me!!


If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail…


“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail” – Benjamin Franklin

I had one of those mornings. I ran out of eggs which I had prepped for the week and was making a mad dash this morning to get ready.  It was easy for me today because I had extra items in my house which I can grab easy.  I had prepped on Sunday I was able to grab my healthy clean items‬.

In the past I would have said to hell with it and went to drive thru Tim Horton’s or worse McDonalds. Not anymore because I have made a point to plan ahead.

I would love to share with you how you too can plan ahead and eat clean!! Just ask me how!

What’s stopping you?


After a great chat with a new friend tonight I have learned that we all really know what we need to do. But we sometime get bogged down in what it is, resulting in us not actually doing it. We all have our own struggles and it is how we overcome them which shows us who we really are.

I learned tonight that a piercing comment that someone made 2+ years ago does not define me and that I am the only person giving it credence. Well enough is enough… I am taking my own advice and getting out of my own damn way.

What are you stopping yourself from doing, obtaining, overcoming??
