Read MoreI wrote this blog originally for my best friend Nicole as she embarks on a trip around the world today. She wanted some workouts that required very little equipment but would still kick her ass. These are awesome to do when you don't have a gym available or are in a pinch for time. I created 5 workouts below as examples, but you can use any of the exercises in the database at the bottom to mix and match to keep your workouts interesting.
Read MoreResistance. It’s by far one of my favorite topics and definitely something we all can all relate to. Waking up at 4:55am for work, foam rolling at night, continuing to take cold showers and my favorite, resistance to sitting down on my laptop to write. Can’t I just graduate from that one already?? All of these things which I know are good for me are the hardest things to commit to doing. And it takes a decent amount of will power to get me through them.

What if you wake up one morning, 10 years from now still not having done that thing that makes you feel alive, then resistance is stronger than you. Or is it? Sometimes it takes something scary and crazy to stare us in the face to make us do what we have always wanted.Read More
Read More"Don't expect, just experience" was the mantra of my trip. As I flew home to Boston, I felt like I just blinked my eyes and my journey was over. If you don't stop and breathe for a moment you will miss the entire thing.
As much as I LOVE the way I make my smoothies, having a local make something a little different for me felt amazing. In life, we can sometimes get caught up in controlling. We start to find a pattern and literally live in it 24/7. If something goes out of the ordinary it can cause us to freak out. "What do you mean you don't have organic, unsweetened almond milk?!"Read More
