Motivation Monday: No Doubt

Summer is FULL of good vibes. There’s sunshine, outdoor activities, longer days, and for some, a bit of travel. While you could be nose deep in a beach worthy novel, toes in the sand, chilled glass of rose in hand (aaahh) there still could be a part of you that is just feeling…well for lack of a better word…blah. Sometimes I find myself (even in the best of circumstances) feeling a lack of motivation. If you’ve got it all together and have never felt this way, this post may not be for you. But for the rest of us, I […]

Motivation Monday: Fathers, Modern Day Heroes

This Motivation Monday is dedicated to some pretty important people that motivate us to be our best selves. It’s Monday, the start to a fresh week and one where we get to pay homage to the modern day heroes in our lives, dads. Fathers, mentors, husbands, brothers, uncles, there are many forms of what a father can mean to someone and it is something that is unique to each person. We would be in a very different place if we didn’t have these special men in our lives. It’s crucial to have a solid figure you can turn to when […]

Wellness Wednesday: 5 Reasons You’ll Go Maca For Maca

The Maca root is not something new and I touched upon it’s impressive benefits in an earlier post. To be honest I have only recently gotten into using it in my smoothies. When I discovered some of its amazing properties I wanted to spotlight it on MSF for those who are just jumping on the bandwagon and may want a little more info. It originated in Peru and is part of the radish family although it is commonly ground into a powder and consumed as a supplement or mixed into smoothies. The benefits of this root have been celebrated by ancient civilizations […]

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 […]

Motivation Monday: Set Yourself Up To Fail

We need to get comfortable with the idea of failing in order to achieve something that is extraordinary or worthwhile. Most of the great pioneers of our time were not told they were doing something practical or were sure to succeed. In reality, they were met with apprehension and criticism (think the Wright brothers, Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, etc). In order to succeed at something of that magnitude, something others haven’t accomplished yet, you need to get into the mindset of setting yourself up to potentially fail. I have taken a few risks, some have paid off, some not so much. […]

Motivation Monday: Knowledge Is Power; 5 Free Ways To Feed Your Brain

I am always craving information and a self-proclaimed perpetual student. There is not much I don’t like to research and learn about, as you can see through this blog. I just think there is so much interesting material out there and the thought that you can be continually learning, never running out of things to experience for the first time is fascinating. As I was walking Finley and listening to a podcast the idea of how much information is out there for us to have access to FOR FREE just popped into my head. I wanted to share with you […]

Motivation Monday: Facing Your Fears

This past week I’ve had a lot of time to reflect and take into account where I am and where I’d like to be. I think this is so important to do from time to time, no matter where you’re at in your career/life, how old you are, etc. Even if you believe you’re ‘satisfied’, doing a temperature check once in awhile is never a bad thing. I wish I could remember the source to site it here, but I remember listening to a podcast a while back and during the interview someone referenced music and how the simple act […]

Wellness Wednesday: Why I’m PRObiotics

There are some things we take or include in our lifestyle because somewhere along the line we heard they were “healthy”. Often times we can’t quite remember when or why. For a long time this was probiotics for me. I knew they were good to include in my diet, but I wasn’t clear on the exact reasons (something about keeping the good bugs in your system?). I touched upon why I started cutting dairy out of my diet in previous posts but didn’t go into how I began to notice adverse affects from the elimination of my daily yogurt (aka probiotics). […]

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 […]
