ridiculous picture. i know. but it gets the point across

Does VH1 still play that show?? I should find out. But anyway – after months of what felt like never ending bad news, things are really starting to look up. Hallelujah! !

What has been making this week great:

*Feeling like I have friends again!

Starting with 3 great days at the BLEND Retreat. I kept the love and the high going. I’ve been having and scheduling lunch/dinner/coffee dates with many new friends and friends I’ve been neglecting. My week this and next is seriously packed

*Fitness Magazine Meet and Tweet was a blast!

Not to mention, Kelly Olexa, founder of  FitFluential, said she loved my hair. My life is complete now!

All the bloggers in attendance got extremely spoiled by all the fabulous sponsors.

Reebok, OakleyCamelBakVichy, birkenstock, Sun Maid + many, many more.

I learned all about how to eat better (unrefined carbs are good and cleanses aren’t necessarily all they are cracked up to be), dress for gym to street, and best new beauty products to have in your gym bag. I got to finally meet a lot of bloggers I’ve been following like Dorry! Love her. Thank you so much to Fitness Magazine! So proud to be in the company of so many influential women.


I finally got my 16 Handles on. Froyo – it has been far too long my friend. Katie and I did it up both picking peanut butter and graham cracker.

*Sharing a great product

I got news this morning that I am going to be working with a fantastic local company. Details on this to come, but let’s just say it has fabulous products combining some favorite things chia seeds and nut butter. I know, right??

* Yoga Success!

As if the day couldn’t get any better I got to my happy place Strala Yoga and did my first unassisted forearm handstand. This means I’m getting stronger guys. I got straight up during class and held it for a good 15 secondish. So proud of myself! I was beaming like a little kid.

This photo totally one for the fridge.

*Expanding my cooking {little}knowledge

Remember when I took the Spring Veg Cooking Demo a few weeks ago?? Well, Tomorrow I’m getting the opportunity to help prep for a catering event with the Regal Vegan. Can’t wait to learn from her and get more hands on experience cooking great food.

My 25th Birthday is on Saturday

Considering a couple of weeks ago I was dreading this, it is a good week to be going so well. As of today – I can’t wait. Bring it on 25th Year – let’s make you my best yet!!

Starting about two weeks ago, I slowly became really proactive about making the best out of my situation and focusing on the positive. Life is too short to bury myself in negativity, depression, and going to bed miserable every night. I had months of rough times ending with 2 weeks of complete train wreck. Then, miraculously I saw the light.

“It is often hard to distinguish between the hard knocks in life and those of opportunity.” – Frederick Phillips

I used to think constant positivity, optimism, and trusting the journey was hokey, but I am now a convert.


Comment with anything! Something good from your week, what you had for dinner, your favorite fro yo topping. Can you tell I’m craving some frozen yogurt again – can I have that on Saturday instead of a cake??
