Motivation Monday: Mind Cleansing

Happy Monday everyone and happy fresh start to the week! I have to say this past weekend got me REALLY inspired and I can’t wait to continue to share all the great things with you. I love this platform for so many reasons but I’m also getting into Instagram and particularly Instagram stories because of the interaction. I love the fact that I can connect with you instantly and it brings us closer on this journey, so fun! One of the things I came across I found in a magazine I was reading, they were discussing mind cleansing. It’s something […]

Motivation Monday: The Power of Music

Happy Monday everyone! The start of the week is a great opportunity to set some goals and add an intention to set the tone for your week. I was feeling a little overwhelmed on Saturday morning thinking of all the errands, homework, research, laundry, etc. I was trying to accomplish before I was due to my Pilates studio lesson. I knew I would be in class for 5 hours so I was trying to make the morning as productive as possible. I noticed my anxiousness and in result tried to slow down and see what I could do to prioritize […]

Fit Friday: MSF Raw Mocha Almond Squares

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you are having a great week and are headed into the weekend feeling accomplished or inspired. I have been plugging away at Pilates training and enjoying walking to classes in this summer-like weather we’ve been having. It’s been pretty warm so I haven’t been wanting to put my oven on to bake anything, but that doesn’t mean my chocolate cravings go away! I experimented with some things I had on hand and ended up with squares that were the perfect amount of chocolatey goodness and super simple to make, so I felt the need to […]

Fit Friday: Dining Out? 4 Simply Fit Rules To Stay On Track

It’s been a total whirlwind this week getting back into the swing of things after being away and catching up on Pilates training and work. I LOVE traveling and crave the inspiration and perspective it gives me but also enjoy coming back to a routine and being productive. All the eating out I was doing while traveling and celebrating with family and friends inspired me to do a little guide to eating out if you’re trying to keep things fit and trim for the upcoming bathing suit season like me. Eating out does not have to be a daunting thing […]

Fit Friday: Snack Attack Remedy…MSF Granola Recipe

Happy Friday friends! I have to say I am pretty ready to say hello to the weekend. It’s been a week filled with studying, practicing Pilates and of course the usual 9-5 job. No complaints here because I am BEYOND excited about the material I am covering in my teacher training and feeling more inspired every day, just a little tired 😉 I did leave some time this week to play around in the kitchen a little and created a yummy adaptation of a granola I was gifted by the chef we hired for my birthday dinner in Santa Barbara […]

Wellness Wednesday: Everyone Does It, So Lets Talk About It

Today’s post can be viewed as a little TMI for some, but I’ve had enough friends ask my opinion on the subject to feel it’s a topic many can relate to. What’s the healthiest, most effective form of hair removal? Am I an expert? Not really. But I do have years of experience trying different methods and feel this familiarity has me well-read on the topic enough to give an educated opinion. I will try to keep it simple, even though this can be a complex topic with many points of view. I’ve listed the top ways of hair removal […]

Fit Friday: Tahini 3 Ways

As we head into the long weekend, I am prepping my fridge with grab’n’go snacks and treats to power us through some hiking and movie nights we have planned. I always like to “hide” some nutrition in my treats and snacks so I am getting in some nutrients while I indulge a little. I first came across tahini when I discovered Greek food and fell in love with the tangy flavor especially when paired with the bright flavors of parsley and veggies used in Mediterranean cooking. Little did I know the variety of foods both savory and sweet I could […]

Wellness Wednesday: Got Milk?

I know I’m not alone in a world of dairy-sensitive people when being in constant search for the ideal non-dairy milk alternative. A few years ago I noticed that on days I did not consume dairy, my bloating and gaseous feeling in my stomach went away. Since then I make a point to consume alternative to dairy milk in my lattes or smoothies and try to stick with coconut or goat milk yogurt (which seems to be easier on my stomach). The only exception I give myself is the once in awhile indulgence of cheese, which I still try to […]

My Simply Fit: Revamped

I have a confession. I don’t know what I’m doing. I have been searching for a creative outlet (starting a cupcake business, writing numerous unpublished books, painting countless paintings, knitting scarves & blankets, experimenting with healthy recipes in the kitchen, the list goes on…) all very fun but nothing really filling that “void”. It was only when I began reading some lifestyle blogs that I had that “aha” moment. My background is much like a patchwork quilt. There is quite the variety of things that have made me the person I am today with the interests that I have. I […]
