5 Keys to Sticking to Your Workout Routine

These last couple weeks have really tested my workout routine. If you follow me on Instagram you know that Chris surprised me with a puppy as an early birthday gift! I cried like a baby and was SO SURPRISED. Let me gush on my future husband for a second, then I’ll get back to the purpose of this post – sticking to your workout routine. When Chris and I moved into our house in March, the first thing I said...

My Top 3 Products to Help De-Stress

Today on this lovely Thursday, I am sharing my top 3 products that help me de-stress and why. Everyone feels high levels of stress at certain periods in their life, so having a few products to help you calm down should be a necessity. I just happen to include them in my daily routine as well! If you haven’t read my related post on a go-to diaphragmatic breathing exercise, read it here. Photography // Girl on Glasgow  My Favorite De-Stress...

Whole30 Sunrise Smoothie

Happy Thursday! Today is a super dreary day in Dallas, and what better way to combat it than with this sunrise smoothie recipe?! The deliciousness of this smoothie is bound to put a smile on your face, regardless of the weather outside. Even though deep down, I wish it would rain every day. Thunderstorms are LIFE [insert praise hands.] We have a fun weekend ahead! Chris’ mom is staying with us this weekend and we are planning to cook new...

3 Go-To Tabata Workouts

Since I joined Tread Fitness earlier this year, high-intensity interval training has become my favorite type of workout. I still love my yoga practice for rest days, but there is something about just kicking your own ass and feeling that sweat drip down the sides of your face that is so satisfying to me. Enter one of my favorite types of HIIT workouts, Tabata (aka “The 4-Minute Miracle). To start, the basic formula for Tabata workouts are 4 minutes of...

Diaphragmatic Breathing Exercise

In need of a quick way to calm down/cool off? Not sure why that is in question form because I am pretty sure EVERYONE could use something like this! In today’s post, I am going to be sharing a quick breathing exercise using diaphragmatic breathing. I am ashamed to admit this, but I had never heard of diaphragmatic breathing until my mid-twenties. Shame on me. Photo Cred: Melissa Fay Photography, Top, Bottoms This crop top and leggings set from Outdoor...

Meatballs and Cauli Mash

Happy Thursday, my friends! I am always looking for dishes that I can cook early in the week and eat for lunch the rest of the week. For some reason lunch is SO HARD for me; I’ll save that topic for another day. (If you have lunch tips, send my way, help!) This meatballs and cauli mash recipe is a bulls-eye when it comes to making a meal in bulk and eating it all week. Personally, I like to cook...

Anywhere Ab Exercises

Hi! First of all, remember me?! I promise I am going to become more consistent with posting. Bear with me people; I’m still trying to figure out this whole blog life thing! But, what better way to start off a summer blog post than with ab exercises? Life has been like a sprint these last few weeks, between wedding planning, baby shower planning (for my sis in law!!), my job, nesting in our new home, traveling, it’s been a whirlwind,...

The Healthy Girl’s Comfort Food – Simple Hash Bowl

To be honest this hash bowl isn’t the prettiest recipe to photograph, but it’s delicious and a weekday go-to, so I had to share it with y’all. Who says comfort food should be packed with a ton of calories and fat?! This recipe is a weekly staple at our house. Chris would actually eat it every night (with no complaints) if I cooked it. When I did Whole 30, hash bowls became my obsession; you seriously CANNOT mess them up. They...

5 Easy Ways to Practice Self-Care

It’s not breaking news that we live in an overstimulating world. As women, it comes natural to care for others and our maternal instincts kick in daily. However, self-care makes up an essential part of a healthy lifestyle and taking the time to check in with your body isn’t a bad thing; it should be a major priority! I’ve always been a busy body. Growing up I was always going to a practice of some sort: softball, basketball, competitive cheerleading,...

Peanut Butter Protein Bites

Last weekend was our first weekend in the house with NO PLANS! I repeat, NO PLANS! That really doesn’t happen too often, so we soaked it in alllll weekend long with a lot of much needed sleep (Chris literally slept the entire weekend per my Instastory), lounging, cleaning, organizing and meal prepping! Lately we have been so busy that meal prep has not even been an option, but we are finally getting settled and into our new routine. Sunday is by...
