Fit Friday: MSF Salted Caramel Bites

Hello weekend! Even in the dead of summer vacation there is still something about Fridays, it’s honestly the best feeling to get to the end of a work week or weekdays and have the promise of a full weekend on the horizon. I have to say I’ve enjoyed my summer schedule which mostly consisted of Pilates and walking Finley, but there is something to be said about a work schedule and being able to depend on that consistency. I found myself busier than ever this week with appointments, meeting friends, and working on a multitude of projects. Whenever I get […]

Wellness Wednesday: The Skinny on Protein

Happy hump day! I hope you’re having a great week. Mine has been full of, you guessed it, Pilates. I am so close to concluding my teaching hours and loving every second of it. I had a few questions about protein and I thought doing a post would be beneficial to most of us. Protein has been a buzzword in the health and wellness industry and while it’s something we are all told to get more of, especially when working out and building muscle, the why and how is not always addressed. Well first things first, what is it? Protein […]

MSF Travel: Island Hopping Greece, Part II

I’m back at it! I apologize for missing Fit Friday, technology is amazing and helpful most times but can be trying and frustrating once in awhile 😉 It’s Monday, the start of the workweek and a perfect time to pick up where I left off on my recap of our island hopping adventure in Greece. We left Athens to take a day trip to Delphi (you may want to pronounce it del-fy but the locals assured us it was pronounced del-fee). I didn’t know too much about Delphi, aside from the mythical references in movies and stories from history class. […]

Please Pardon Our Dust…

Happy Wellness Wednesday friends! I am bummed that I have to forgo two posts this week but I’ve been having a designer help with a site rebuild and there are technical difficulties (which they can explain better I’m sure) and it’s making the blog a little wacky in the process. I hope to be up and running in a few days, fingers crossed it’s not even that long because I miss posting already! In the meantime I will leave you with some simply fit reminders to use as needed throughout your week 🙂 Keep hydrated-proper hydration is not only important […]

MSF Travel: Island Hopping Greece, Part I

Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was a perfect blend of productivity & play. We have been doing work around the house and organizing in a major way, which always feels great. I was able to sprinkle in a few yoga classes with my Pilates schedule and I forgot how much my body needs it. I want to incorporate more when I can, so good for your mind AND body. As promised, I am going to start my shorthand version of our Greece trip in a travel journal type of post over the course of the next few Mondays. We […]

Fit Friday: Ch Ch Ch Cherry Milk

Woohoo we made it to Friday! Summers are always packed for me so the weeks just seem to fly by. I haven’t forgotten about a Greece recap post, it’s honestly just a matter of compiling the photos from 5 adults and sifting through to make some sort of cohesive summary-taking a little long, but I will get there! In the meantime, I wanted to explore a recent thing that I’ve found myself doing post-dinner that is not only a fit tip but also a wellness tip and I thought it may be useful for you guys too. I’m sure I’m […]

Wellness Wednesday: Dandelion Root Tea

How is it already halfway through the week? Summer days seem to go by so quickly, no? I’m excited about today’s post because I feel like it’s not only in reference to wellness but is also a fit tip. Who doesn’t want a skinny hack every now and then? I found dandelion root tea first out of curiosity and then again in a recipe for a detox tea. When I was in college a friend of mine who was French was always referring to how they grew up on dandelion greens and how they were full of nutrition. I thought […]

Motivation Monday: Manifest Your Dream Life

It’s the start to a fresh week and if you’re interested in this kind of thing, the last week for our current moon before we get a new moon on Sunday. Sometimes I do make connections with behaviors or patterns in accordance to the cycle of the moon, and fun fact the tides are also affected by the moon (also the sun, but not as much). The moon can be a powerful thing if you want to believe in its energy. That brings me to back to what I wanted to talk about for today’s Motivation Monday. I base most […]

Fit Friday: Treat-Yo-Self Superfood Cups

Happy Friday friends! Although I’m trying to get back into the healthy swing of things after our vacation, I still want to make sure I leave room for some decadence and have a treat when I have the craving. Instead of throwing it all out the window and giving into just any sweet treat I see, I make it a point to include a little nutrition so I’m not totally blowing it. In preparation for times like these, I like to make treats ahead that I can just grab when the urge strikes. I was looking through my refrigerator for […]

Wellness Wednesday: DIY Simply Natural Makeup Brush Cleanser

Happy hump day everyone! I feel like I’ve been in straight cleaning mode since I’ve gotten back from our trip. And I don’t mean laundry and vacuuming, I mean cleaning the tile grout, organizing closets, and dusting light fixtures. If you can clean it, I’m getting in there 😉 While I was running around cleaning everything I made sure to go through all the toiletries from traveling and I came across my makeup brushes. It seems like I am constantly cleaning them ever since a facialist turned me on to how much bacteria & nasty germs can grow (EWWW). She […]
