Comparison is such a loser. Ya know? Like just when you start to feel good about your progress, isn’t that when we always seem to look to the left or right (or in front of us) and think, “Well…I should be there.” Instantly that sense of accomplishment is dead. Goodness, am I ever guilty of this. I’m a doer. A visionary. A dreamer. I believe there is always more. I
Anyone else still sad that Labor Day weekend came and went so fast?! Honestly, leading up to the weekend, seeing all the aftermath of Harvey, I felt a little bit guilty about having plans for the weekend. My heart just felt like I shouldn’t be having a “normal” holiday weekend while so many people I know are trying to pick up the pieces (literally) of their lives and put them
Money. Ugh. Isn’t it a tough topic?! And lots of times, very *hush hush* too. I’m from the south where we don’t discuss money! But I’m about to change that (at least for me). Let’s talk about it for a baby minute. Did you know?** 30% of Americans have less than $1,000 in all bank accounts at any given time. 56% of Americans have a net worth less than $25,000.
“If you don’t start somewhere, you’re going to go nowhere.” – Bob Marley To get anywhere in life, you have to start somewhere, right? You have to take that first step. I want to share with you where I was before I started… These are two photos I took in the fall/winter of 2013. This was just a few months after I had moved to D.C. and what I often
Did you actually know that your body is designed to feel good?! Feeling icky all the time should not be normal, but so often it is! I had NO idea how good I was supposed to feel and that my body was screaming at me for a detox and cleansing. It wasn’t until I actually started feeling so great that I realized how truly awful I had felt before. Read
Raise your hand if you’ve ever had trouble losing weight? Have you hit a plateau? I’ve recently (as in this week), learned about something that I had never really thought about being a contributing factor: Inflammation. Now that I think about it, it seems like a “duh!” thing, but I never fully made the connection before! I came across this information through researching one of the most important, and often
I had an eating disorder. To many of you, that’s not a secret. That’s not new information. It isn’t something I hide. Of course, it’s also not something I tend to bring up over dinner either…but I’m not shy about sharing that information with people. It wasn’t always that way. Quite the opposite in fact. No, I had to hide it from everyone. Why? Because I knew it was “wrong”.
So technically it was a “3 Day Reboot” with Jrink Juicery. But – this is what most of us would refer to as a “juice cleanse” or “juice detox”. Really, it doesn’t matter what you want to call it – for three days I got most of my calories and nutrients from a combo of cold-pressed fruit/veggie juices and almond milk. What made me decide to do this? I’m not
Oh NYC. You never disappoint me. Like ever. For real – I adore that beautiful city and all of it’s magic and hustle and noise and sometimes stench. I know some will argue that it’s just not as special as everyone says it is, but I’ll never not love the city. It “gets” me. I walk out on to those streets and I feel like a part of me that
“Take the risk or lose the chance.” I cannot believe it has been 3 years since I took the risk. Three years ago I seized an opportunity, with a lot of fear and doubt, but also – with hope in my heart. Deciding to join my second network marketing company took a serious leap of faith. I had “failed” once. I had already let fear sink its teeth into me
